Punish Man Who Allegedly Neglected Pets and Kept Their Dead Bodies in Freezer

Target: Ellen Mitchell, District Attorney for Saline County, Missouri

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for man who allegedly neglected animals so severely that many of them died, and then kept their remains in a freezer.

In a horrific scene in Missouri, several pets were discovered living in deplorable conditions, with the bodies of still more found stuffed inside a freezer. “I don’t believe that freezer was plugged in so you could imagine the odor that came off of that, and there’s simply no excuse for disposing of animals in that way,” stated Saline County Sheriff Cindi Mullins. Her deputies responded to a 911 call and discovered the devastating scene. A dozen dogs, a scorpion, a gecko, and three tarantulas were found living in their own waste. They appeared malnourished and in poor condition.

Steven Howell, the owner of the property, has been charged with animal abuse. The Humane Society took custody of the dogs — sadly, three had to be euthanized due to the extent of their injuries. The gecko and the tarantula have been adopted, and the St. Louis Zoo took custody of the other animals. Sign below and demand that Howell, if convicted, receive the maximum penalty possible by law.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Mitchell,

A dozen dogs and other pets were found living in their own filth, in the home of Steven Howell. Several other animals were found dead in a freezer. We demand justice for these innocent animals.

“There was an overwhelming odor of ammonium and there was a lot of animal waste,” stated Sheriff Mullins. Her deputies arrived at the dilapidated house to find the animals malnourished and in pitiable condition. Three dogs had to be euthanized due to the extent of their injuries.

This horrific cruelty cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
