Man Accused of Killing Mom’s Dog With Trash Compactor Must be Punished

Target: Glenn Funk, District Attorney for Davidson County, Tennessee

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the man who allegedly placed a dog into a trash compactor and turned the machine on, leading to the dog’s death.

A dog was allegedly placed into a trash compactor, leading to its death. Video footage reportedly showed a man placing the dog inside and then pushing the button to turn the machine on. Demand that justice is served for this innocent dog.

When neighbors heard the dog barking and whimpering from inside of the trash compactor, they immediately called for help. The Nashville Fire Department rescued the badly injured Shih Tzu and brought it to a veterinarian. Sadly, it died four days later. Per police, video footage showed a man wrapping the dog in a grocery bag before placing it into the machine.

Police arrested Terrence J. Clark and charged him with aggravated animal cruelty. He is currently in jail under bond. Sign below and demand that Clark receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear District Attorney Funk,

A dog died a horrific death after it was reportedly placed inside of a trash compactor. A man allegedly placed the dog inside and activated the machine before driving away. We demand that justice be served for this innocent dog.

Per police, video footage showed Clark pushing the button to activate the trash compactor four times after placing the helpless dog inside. The dog reportedly belonged to Clark’s mother. The dog’s desperate cries caught the attention of neighbors, but it was already too late.

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

  1. Lies lies n more lies he don’t kill that dog the dog was lifeless n was believe to but die from brain stomach heart lung small intestine cancer and tumors

  2. Target: Richard Chambers, Auckland Police District Commander and Superintendent

    Goal: Reprimand officers who reportedly shot and killed an innocent bomb detector dog.

    A 10-month-old bomb detector puppy, named Grizz, was reportedly shot to death by police while training to be an Aviation Security Explosion Detector. Grizz, who was was only six months away from graduating, reportedly escaped from his handlers and that’s when the Airport’s Emergency Operations Center team decided to have the bearded collie “destroyed.”

    The poor dog was killed an hour after the airport had posted to Twitter that they captured him. It seems the decision to “destroy” the innocent, harmless puppy was unnecessary, especially when police could’ve attempted to use less fatal methods of capturing Grizz. As the Ambassador of SAFE for Animals, Hans Kriek, asked, “why wasn’t a tranquilizer used instead?”

    This innocent puppy’s life was devoted to helping people and saving lives, yet his life was carelessly taken by the same people he was training to protect.

  3. Target: Francis S. Collins, Agency Executive for the National Institutes of Health

    Goal: Stop funding the University of Pittburgh’s animal testing facilities in light of recent allegations of long-standing abuse and neglect of laboratory animals.

    In an undercover investigation, PETA has revealed shocking and widespread instances of alleged abuse and neglect of animals at the University of Pittsburgh’s Rangos Research Facility. Over six months, they heard testimony from workers and captured footage which appeared to show that monkeys were housed in isolation and appeared to be ‘losing their minds’ while also being refused basic veterinary care. They found cases of rabbits with mutilated limbs that had reportedly been forced into unnatural and painful positions for weeks. Other rabbits had apparently been bred with severe deformities, including malformed skulls.

    All of these cruel procedures were in part possible due to the funding the University of Pittsburgh receives from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which in turn is supported by U.S. tax dollars. The USDA conducted an investigation of the facility and claimed that no violations had taken place — but what do we make of cases like Gandalf, a monkey who has spent most of his life alone in a tiny cage, who received no veterinary care after his hand was bitten by another monkey, and was offered only ibuprofen for his severe pain? What about the rabbits whose ligaments were severed to recreate traumatic knee injuries, and forced to endure weeks immobilized in apparent agony? We must demand that our tax money is put to better use and must not be used to fund the torture and neglect of animals.

    The use of animals in research, particularly as the subjects of experimental tests, is an outdated scientific practice which subjects thousands of animals to miserable lives of suffering and neglect. It exploits animals and treats them as expendable commodities, with only limited benefit to “the greater good.” Alternatives to animal testing should be made a top priority for medical research, and should be given adequate funding to ensure they are made widely available as soon as possible. Sign this petition to demand that the NIH stop funding this cruel research facility, and instead divert such funding to go toward finding better research alternatives.
