Puppy Whose Neck was Allegedly Cut with Knife Deserves Justice

Target: Matthew Schutte, State Attorney for Henry County, Illinois

Goal: Demand that the teenager who allegedly cut a puppy’s neck with a knife receive the maximum penalty under law.

A puppy’s neck was allegedly cut with a knife four times in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The puppy survived, but his wounds reportedly remained open for over 24 hours and attracted maggots. Demand justice for this innocent puppy.

“I’ve seen animals starve and be skin and bones, but I’ve never seen one with open slashes to its neck. That was from a knife, not a dog attack,” stated Kellie Wallace, Director of the Henry County Humane Society Kewanee Chapter. The seven- to eight-week-old puppy, named Thor, was found at the entrance of an apartment complex with four vertical lacerations on his neck and abrasions on his back.

Thor is being treated at the Kewanee Veterinary Clinic and is expected to survive. A 17-year-old boy reportedly confessed to harming Thor and has been charged with aggravated animal cruelty. Sign below and demand that this teenager receive the maximum penalty under law, if convicted.


Dear State Attorney Schutte,

A young puppy was allegedly attacked with a knife in your county and could have died. The puppy reportedly had four lacerations across his neck and abrasions on his back. We demand justice for this poor puppy.

“It looked like he was a little weak and dehydrated, and it looked like the wounds were about 24 hours old,” stated Chris Ryan, a veterinarian. Thor, a labrador and pit bull terrier mix, reportedly had maggots and fly eggs in his wounds when he was brought in for treatment. A teenage boy reportedly confessed to cutting Thor’s neck and has been charged with aggravated animal cruelty.

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

  2. This person needs serious therapy! Prosecute!

    The wound didn’t attract maggots, it attracted flies, which then laid the larvae in the wound. The maggots actually helped keep the wound clean. The kid who did this needs some serious psychiatric help!

  4. Death penalty for these bastards. Don’t want them in the world cut his throat.
