Find and Punish Man Caught on Video Throwing Sheep

Target: Gareth Morgan, Chief Constable of Police, Staffordshire, England

Goal: Demand that man who dragged a sheep by the scruff of its neck and threw it over a fence is found.

Authorities are looking for an unidentified man caught on video brutally dragging a sheep by the scruff of its neck and throwing it over a fence. According to Rachel Butler, spokeswoman for the RSPCA in the Midlands, “The sheep lands on its back and appears to have what looks like a broken leg. The animal is obviously struggling to stand up and walk.”

The man, who seems to be accompanied by at least two other people, is then seen on video laughing cruelly as the sheep struggles to get up off of its back. While it’s not known whether it was injured previously or when it was hurled over a fence several feet tall, the animal was then seen walking with a pronounced limp.

The video, which was posted to social media, has caused an uproar within the community. Both celebrities and animal welfare groups have stepped up to demand an investigation, including Labour Animal Rights spokesperson Ellen Cobb, who said “the men need to be found and questioned.”

This sort of callous treatment of an animal was deliberate and shocking. Authorities must send a strong message about these sorts of crimes by ensuring that anyone involved is punished. Sign below to ask police to work hard to find and charge the person responsible.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Morgan,

A video that recently went viral on social media showed a man dragging a sheep by the scruff of its neck before hurling it over a fence. The sheep then struggles to get back up, and when it does get up, is seen walking with a  pronounced limp. All the while, the man in the video is seen laughing.

This deliberate and remorseless cruelty is shocking. In order to ensure that justice is served for this poor sheep, the person responsible must be found and punished. We, the undersigned, ask that you take this crime seriously and dedicate extra resources to finding and charging the person responsible.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    “Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness of character; and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.” Authur Schopenhauer

  9. “The farmer and an RSPCA inspector have checked the sheep and fortunately none of the sheep have any broken legs or appear to be injured in any way.”

    “We understand that the sheep in the video is being treated for footrot, which can make the sheep appear lame while walking.”

    “The RSPCA has also spoken to the man who was filmed throwing the sheep into the field and he has admitted the incident was a genuine misjudgement on his part. No further action will be taken”

  10. THE UK IS AS BAD AS CHINA IS -ANIMAL ABUSE IN ALL ITS GLORY!!!
    WHAT AF^&*($#@! DISGRACE…SHAMEFUL.
