Punish Repeat Offender for Allegedly Starving Dogs After Previously Being Charged for Dead Bear and Rabbit

Target: Larry Harrah, Prosecuting Attorney of Fayette County

Goal: Severely punish repeat offender who allegedly starved dogs to death after previously being charged with animal cruelty when authorities found dead rabbits and black bear in his home.

A dog was reportedly starved to death by a man who was previously charged with animal cruelty less than six months ago. The poor deceased dog was found chained inside of a metal cage. Deputies say they found an additional 10 dogs on very short leashes who were suffering from severe starvation and malnutrition. Most of the dogs had no shelter, the deputies said. The owner, 35-year-old Thomas Seth Sedlock, had previously been arrested when the dead bodies of a small black bear and domestic rabbits were found in his home.

The animals were seized and sent to an animal shelter. Sedlock faces a felony charge of animal cruelty and 10 misdemeanor counts of the same charge. Additional charges from his first offense included domestic battery and being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm. Sedlock was arraigned on the new charges and released on bond. If the judge hadn’t released Sedlock without any restrictions the first time, perhaps these innocent dogs wouldn’t have suffered. It’s bad enough that he was able to repeat animal cruelty, but even after this second disturbing offense, the judge still allowed him bond and didn’t bother including restrictions that would prevent him from doing the same thing again. Please add your signature to the petition below to demand that this alleged repeat offender receive the maximum sentence and a permanent ban from owning animals.


Dear Mr. Harrah,

A dead dog was reportedly starved to death by Thomas Seth Sedlock, a man with a recent history of animal cruelty and domestic violence charges. The dog was found chained inside of a metal cage, according to authorities. They also reportedly found 10 other dogs suffering from starvation and kept on short leashes with no shelter. What’s even more disturbing is that less than six months ago, multiple dead rabbits and a black bear were reportedly found in this man’s home.

A combination of multiple animal cruelty and domestic violence charges often results in fatal tragedies for innocent people and animals. This person should be considered dangerous to both humans and animals. We, the undersigned, are calling on you to help ensure that no more animals (or humans) suffer at the hands of this person. Please seek the maximum possible punishment and a lifetime ban from owning animals for this alleged repeat offender.

    Maximum Penalty for Repeat offender, who allegedly starved dogs after having been charged previously for a dead rabbit and a dead bear!!!! Unacceptable!!!

  2. Why was this piece of shit allowed to have animals in the first place so he can become a repeat offender. He needs to go to jail for murder and never , ever again be able to own an animal of any kind!

  6. No, John Pasqua, no bullets. This inbred filth needs to be tortured. How about we draw and quarter him. 🙂

  7. Victoria Salter says:

    Every being deserves the right to not be killed or subject to violence unnecessarily, even this man. I say put him in good, moderately safe jail where he will be looked after but allowed no luxuries for 10 years, fine him $1000 and ban him from ever keeping, working with or otherwise being in charge of caring for animals again. Tell him honestly, politely and firmly that if he is ever unnecessarily violent towards an animal or any other being again, he will face even more severe consequences.

  8. Michelle Kang says:

    This is why we need stronger laws and harsher penalties for animal cruelty.
