Justice for Puppy Kidnapped, Beaten, and Drowned

Target: Bill Adair, District Attorney, Walker County, Alabama

Goal: Punish juveniles accused of stealing a puppy, beating it, and attempting to drown it in a creek.

Three juveniles are facing charges after allegedly beating and attempting to drown a 3-month-old pit bull puppy. The dog was allegedly stolen from a neighbor’s yard by the three children, aged 12, 13, and 17, who are accused of breaking down a fence to gain access to the yard. The dog was saved, but died of its injuries a couple days afterward.

The children allegedly tried to bring the puppy in to a local swimming pool, but lifeguards told them to take the animal home as it wasn’t allowed in. According to Acting Police Chief Jason Hare, the children then took the dog to a nearby creek, where they beat is severely and attempted to drown it. The dog was saved by lifeguards who responded to its tortured screams, chasing the children away. The dog was found wrapped in a shirt.

The accused children, who have not been named due to their ages, were taken to a juvenile detention facility. One was charged with theft of property and the other two were charged with cruelty to animals.

This act shows shocking cruelty and a blatant disregard for life. Juveniles involved in animal abuse this severe are likely to escalate their violence later on in life. We must therefore ask that they are punished properly as well as subjected to appropriate mental health screenings in order to prevent recidivism in the future.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Adair,

Three juveniles are facing charges after allegedly breaking down a neighbor’s fence to steal a puppy, then brutalizing the puppy and trying to drown it. According to witnesses, the children tried to bring the puppy into a local pool but were turned away. Reports say that the children then took the puppy to a nearby creek where they beat it and tried to drown it. While the dog was rescued, it died of its injuries only a couple days later.

Children capable of this sort of violence are at a high risk of escalating their violence to larger animals or even humans. For this reason, we ask that you seek to punish them properly as well as subject them to appropriate mental health screenings in order to prevent recidivism in the future.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. There is no excuse for this whether they are juveniles or adults. They should suffer stiff consequences for their horrible act. Where are the parents!!!!! If they cant punish the kids punish the parents.

  2. There is no age limit for evil and cruelty.

  3. Dear Mr. Adair,

    A schema therapist can pinpoint the abuse or manipulation which ruined these young people’s minds. I feel that it is very important to learn to recognize the malevolent influences rampant today, particularly online manipulators. The Cognitive Therapy Center of New York may still give referrals to specially trained psychologists who have a good chance of helping these young people unlearn the horrible thinking they have been taught.
    Thank you.

  4. These children will grow up to be low life criminals.. authorities need to look into the Home life.. in many cases Children learn from the parents.. there is something very wrong in the lives of these children and they may be damaged for life.

  5. The cruel evil vile scum who did this should be punished severely for the pain and distress they caused the poor puppy.

  6. All of these ‘kids’ are old enough to know what they were doing and that the consequences would be a dead puppy. Their brazen shameless cruelty and disregard for life is frightening. They need severe punishment and mental health evaluations. This was pure evil and if appropriate actions are not taken then the next victim will be a toddler.

  7. Future killers of innocent humans as well and they need to be punished.
    Rest in Peace little puppy.

  8. Who in their right mind allows their children to do a thing like this to an animal? Where are the parents when things like this is happening? This is so unfair to this poor puppy. It must have been in so much pain. I would have really punished those kids for doing that kind of thing. They would have felt pain like that poor puppy did. This is sick

  9. OMG……………..And one wonders what is the matter with our world?? When children are so cruel,vile,sadistic and perverted at such a young age they only get worse as they age unless stopped. THAT IS WHY WE MUST DO SOMETHING NOW…..STOP THESE LITTLE MONSTERS. DEMAND PSYCHIATRIC HELP AS THEY ARE VERY SICK AND DEMENTED. BAN THEM FROM HAVING OR BEING AROUND ANIMALS UNTIL THY CAN PROVE THEY CAN BE RESPONSIBLE AND HUMANE.

    RIP POOR DOG AND MAY YOU GET JUSTICE FOR YOUR HORRIFIC ABUSE AND THEN DEATH BY THESE LITTLE MONSTERS. I WOULD HATE TO LIVE NEAR THEM BUT IF I DID I WOULD WATCH THEM LIKE HAWKS AND WOULD NEVER LET MY CHILDREN OR PETS OUTSIDE WITHOUT ME WATCHING AS YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT THEY WOULD DO. THE WORLD IS SO SCARY AND THIS IS ONE REASON WHY!!!!!!SO VERY VERY SICK AND SAD. IF THINGS DON’T CHANGE WITH THESE MONSTERS YOU WILL SEE THEM IN THE NEWS AGAIN WHEN THEY KILL A CHILD THE NEXT TIME. I HOPE THE OWNERS OF THIS PUPPY GET JUSTICE FOR THEIR DOG AND MAKE SURE THAT THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN AGAIN EVEN IF THESE MONSTERS GO TO JUVENILE DETENTION FOR A VERY LONG TIME. THEY DESERVE IT!!!

    Those monsters need to be punished to the full extent of the extent of the law. They are serial killers in the making. They know what they did was wrong and they did it anyway. If they aren’t punished your children could be next.

  11. PATRICIA KatWrangler WELCH says:

    I can bet these evil little bastards have abused animals in the past. Probably cats, because “boys will be boys”, and they are more available.
    These little POS monsters need to be dealt with before they kill again. This is not a case of just being a boy – this is murder. The DA’s Office needs to prosecute this as the CRIME it is. Theft of Property and Animal Cruelty doesn’t cut it. These little criminals are a danger to every living thing.

    Signed and shared.

  12. Tina Colafranceschi says:

    Those kids should be killed kids like that grow up and start to kill women & children besides we don’t need people like that breeding kill’em all the same way they tried to kill that pup

  13. Maria Nowicki says:

    Drown these little sub-humans before they become evil
    adults.

  14. Renee ragno says:

    They know right from wrong. It’s s choice, action that deserves severe conequences. Let them receive the same til the ultimate end. They earned, deserve it.

  15. tina robertson says:

    The parents should be put in prison and sterilized. The kids should be put down. The world doesnt want them. No mercy for the merciless. Exterminate these people. Dont try to reeducate them. Line them up and shoot them.

  16. It is WAY PAST TIME TO PLAY HARD BALL with evil being like this!!! Souless future serial killers!!! If it were my court room….I’d spare NO MERCY!!!!! HANG THESE DEMONS HIGH FOR ALL TO SEE!!!!

  17. Lock these evil, vile subhuman monsters up for the rest of their unnatural lives at HARD labor! No Internet, no exercise period, no seeing the light of day, no visits, no tv or any entertainment, bread and water, one slice, one glass twice a day, no AC, a bucket and a weekly hosing off in their filthy cells, and that’s it! Also no medical or dental care! Only hard work day in & day out. Only four hours sleep and SEVERE caning if they don’t comply. That, IMHO, would be worse than death. And I hope they would all live to be at least 100!

    Instigation of the death penalty enabling a slow and painful death is most certainly required fort thee filth-bag trailer trash brats. An eye for an eye!!!!
