Justice for Cat Allegedly Beaten, Tied Up in Bag, and Tossed in Dumpster

Target: Sarah George, Chittenden County State’s Attorney

Goal: Severely punish people responsible for tying a live cat inside of a bag and tossing it in the dumpster.

A kitten was reportedly tied up in a trash bag and tossed in a dumpster where it wasn’t found for 20 hours. Thankfully, someone heard the kitten’s cries and alerted police. The officer who arrived said the trash bag was moving and they could hear a cat crying. Inside the bag was a shivering, wet kitten. The kitten had also been hit before being thrown away, according to the officers investigating the incident. The poor animal had to be taken for emergency veterinarian care and was suffering from a broken leg caused by trauma.

Officers investigated the incident and found the owners, a couple living in the apartments where the cat was found in the dumpster. Both 32-year-old Justin Perkins and 35-year-old Kelly Cooney were cited for cruelty to animals. Please add your signature to the petition below to demand that these people are punished to the maximum extent and banned from ever owning animals, if they are found guilty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. George,

A kitten was reportedly found in a trash bag inside of a dumpster. Someone heard the poor animal’s desperate cries and called authorities. The officers say the bag was moving, and inside was a shivering, wet kitten. They believe the kitten had been tied up for 20 hours.

Disposing of innocent, live animals in this manner has become increasingly common. This is no way to get rid of an unwanted pet and there’s no excuse for this senseless cruelty. We. the undersigned, are calling on you to help stop this animal cruelty. Please see to it that the people responsible are given the maximum sentence possible and a lifetime ban from owning animals.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    The total disregard for this little animal – essentially a baby, exhibited by these two perpetrators demonstrates the danger they pose to every living being they come in contact with forever. They must be prosecuted and given the most severe punishment possible under the law.

    Justin perkins and kelly cooney need hunted down and beaten til theyre dead. Somebody get on that please. The more theyre tortured the better.

    Screw the suggested ban on owning pets. They should be banned from breathing. Please make it stop. In a better world the bitches would be tossed in a meat grinder that moves too slowly. There is absolutely no reason in reality that they shouldnt be forcibly sterilized along with all their living relatives and have their children taken away. Kelly cooney probably got her skank ass knocked up. She was making room in the apt for their next victim. Come on ppl. Someone is their neighbor. Poison these ppl or something.

    I agree with tina Roberts… screw the suggested ban on owning pets… the individual who decided to throw this wee kitten away like rubbish deserves nothing less than being thrown under a jail and forgotten about. They need not to have any contact with anyone, children, parents, spouses etc at a minimum…but life alone under the jail would be very sufficient.

  5. tie them up oh break their leg first then throw them in a dumpster charge these creeps severly and put them away in jail

    They should be beaten, ties up and discarded. There is no need for people like this.

    I PRAY EVERYDAY THAT GOD SENDS A PLAGUE SO HORRIBLE THAT IT WIPES OUT EVERYONE THAT EATS, TORTURERS, RAPES, STARVES TO DEATH, MAIMS, SKINS ALIVE, CATS, DOGS, HORSES, WOLVES OR ANY ANIMAL! PEOPLE INVOLVED WITH DOG FIGHTING! PEOPLE WHO TORTURE ANIMALS AND SELL FOR GREED! THOSE THAT HAVE NO COMPASSION FOR ANIMALS, AND THOSE THAT KILL FOR EVIL REASONS! IN JESUS NAME I PRAY!
