Justice for Puppy Thrown From Balcony During Fight

Target: Anita Alvarez, Cook County, Illinois State Attorney

Goal: Man who allegedly threw puppy from a third floor balcony must be harshly punished, if guilty.

A 10-month-old terrier mix puppy was reportedly found with cracked ribs, a broken neck, and a fractured pelvis after someone cruelly threw it from the balcony of a third floor apartment. According to authorities, the dog fell more than 30 feet before hitting the pavement. The eight-pound puppy, named Callie, had extensive injuries, said Police Sergeant Michael Tews. Sergeant Tews says Callie was lying helpless in the alley with blood and foam coming from her mouth, but the tiny animal began wagging her tail when he arrived. Callie was rushed for treatment, but it’ll take her months to recover enough to be up for adoption.

According to reports, a man named Melvin Coleman threw Callie, his girlfriend’s dog, during an argument with his girlfriend. According to police, the man had threatened to throw the poor dog out the window for weeks. According to the animal shelter where Callie was placed, no eyewitnesses have came forward and Coleman is only facing a misdemeanor charge for the alleged violent act of animal cruelty.

With nothing but a misdemeanor charge and a measly fine, the innocent puppy who was allegedly thrown from 30 foot balcony probably won’t get the justice she deserves. Please sign this petition to urge the authorities to ensure that this man is harshly punished, if guilty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Alvarez,

A small puppy was reportedly found foaming and bleeding from her mouth after the owner’s boyfriend allegedly threw her from a balcony. According to Police Sergeant Michael Tews, the puppy was lying in an alley barely moving. The puppy’s neck was broken, her pelvis fractured, and her ribs cracked.

The man accused of this cruel act had reportedly been threatening to throw the puppy out of the window for weeks. It seems this person committed this violent act of animal cruelty out of pure anger and malice, which means he’s a danger to society. Unfortunately, he’ll only face a misdemeanor charge and a measly fine. That’s why we, the undersigned, urge you to do everything possible to ensure that this person receives the harshest possible penalty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

      The POS girlfriend needs to be arrested to for not telling the cops what happened to her dog. Unbelievable evil in both of them. Throw them out an eight story window then torture them until they die. My heart is broken for this innocent dog.

  2. Kathryn Irby says:

    Justice NOW for this loving, innocent dog!!! Unacceptable!!

  3. You Take Everything from this POS to pay for this innocent’s medical care! Sell his car, truck, anything and everything! And if that girlfriend has 1 stinking brain in her head.. Run!!! Run very fast. This dog saved your life. And why didn’t you come forward for Callie? You and your boyfriend are both worthless!

    • Exactly. HOW could anyone with any brain cells not take repeated threats of physical violence against their pet seriously and not report the threats/abuser, plus get at LEAST your pet OUT of harm’s way BEFORE the fact?!?! Then, to just ABANDON your pet after harm IS done?! Both of these pitifully stupid and heartless morons should be banned from ever having animals anywhere near them!!

    • Stacy Gardner says:

      EXACTLY!!!

  4. What is wrong with people! No brains!someone should throw him off a balcony!

  7. He gave the girlfriend lots of warning about what he’d do to the dog. I find her as guilty as the male. – cannot call him a “man”.

  8. Margrit Simons says:

    They should receive the most severe punishment possible!

  9. Kathy Terrell says:

    AT THE VERY LEAST, MAKE HIM PAY FOR ALL OF THE MEDICAL CARE. THEN JAIL HIM.

  10. Laurie Miskell says:

    There is a special place in Hell for those who abuse animals… Karma is a bitch and it ALWAYS comes back.

  11. michelle mitchell says:

    This vile POS must have the death penalty imposed.I dare this gutless wonder to make face to face contact with me!!!!

  12. Alice Knight says:

    This little dog deserves justice! Mr. Coleman does not deserve to have any privileges of keeping an animal of any kind and should never be left alone with one. Mr. Coleman sounds as if he enjoys being manipulative and a” power” seeker always threatening. The weak penalty he was granted does not reflect the atrocity he committed. To the presiding judge and attorney, do you feel animals don’t deserve our respect and be granted the justice the same as us? After all, they are a living-being.
    I hope his girlfriend decides to end her unhealthy relationship with this individual.

  13. IMMEDIATE DEATH TO MELVIN COLEMAN FOR TRYING TO KILL THIS DOG NOW.

  14. Lisa Zarafonetis Lisa Zarafonetis says:

    Time to throw them off the balcony❗️?
    Signed & Shared?

  15. POOR BABY XXXXX GET BETTER XXXX
    HANG THESE FILTHY EVIL ROTTEN SCUM!!!!
