Justice for Dogs Allegedly Starved and Forced to Eat Cage-Mate

Target: Sphelo Samuel, Office of the Public Prosecutor, Bloemfontein, South Africa

Goal: Punish homeowner accused of starving dogs to the point that they were forced to eat their cage-mate.

Two dogs were recently found starved and emaciated, reportedly forced to eat their cage-mate to survive. According to officials with the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) in Bloemfontein, South Africa, “The two emaciated dogs were so malnourished that they had probably gone for weeks without food.” There was reportedly no food or water available and the yard was scattered with the bones and discarded head of the dead dog — a Boerboel, also known as a South African Mastiff.

Elsewhere in the yard, SPCA workers found two 8-week-old puppies. They were reportedly terrified, and so thin and weak that they were unable to stand up. SPCA senior inspector Reinet Meyer stated that the puppies were “completely dehydrated and their ribs were sticking out”

All of the animals rescued will require extensive veterinary care. The owner of the home is currently under investigation for animal abuse.

It’s important to take crimes against animals seriously in order to send the message that cruelty is unacceptable. In order to ensure justice for these animals, the person found responsible should be punished harshly for this blatant and shocking neglect. Sign the petition below to ask the prosecutor to seek the maximum possible punishment for the homeowner, if they are found guilty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Samuel,

Two dogs were recently rescued from what authorities called “a plot of abomination.” The dogs had reportedly been starved for weeks, and were forced to eat their cage-mate, whose bones and discarded head littered the yard. Elsewhere on the grounds, two puppies were found dehydrated and starving. They were reportedly so weak that they could not stand up. The animals were removed from the property and will require strict veterinary treatment.

An animal cruelty investigation has been started against the homeowner. In order to ensure that the person responsible can’t subject more animals to this same horrific cruelty, it’s imperative that they are punished to the fullest extent of the law. We, the undersigned, ask you to work hard to ensure justice for these poor animals.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. End the domestic pet trade so stupid sick criminals like this idiot freak criminal. Stop breeding animals to be treated like trash. These are living creatures, innocent, they do NOT deserve this type of horrific treatment. The homeowner should be charged with several fonts of cruelty and jailed. Then let this idiot find some deserted place to live, because I do not want trash like that in my community.
