Justice for Puppy Reportedly Locked in Crate Until She Starved to Death

Target: Stephen Wagstaffe, District Attorney of San Mateo, California

Goal: Issue harsher sentence for woman who allegedly locked puppy in crate until she starved to death.

A 3-month-old Chihuahua, named Baby, was reportedly locked inside a crate until she starved to death and was found by two children. The owner, 26-year-old Janice Mathis, reportedly brought the puppy’s emaciated carcass, which was covered in urine and feces, to the Humane Society for disposal. From  there, a necropsy was done, and the results showed that Baby starved to death.

Unfortunately, Mathis was only given probation, some fines, and a single day in jail. This measly sentence does not bring justice to the poor puppy who suffered an agonizing death. Please sign this petition to demand a harsher punishment for this cruel woman.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Wagstaffe,

A puppy was reportedly locked up inside a crate and left to starve to death. Two children found the dead puppy’s body, said officials. They also said that the owner brought the puppy’s dead, emaciated carcass to the humane society for disposal. The carcass was reportedly covered in urine and feces. A necropsy showed that the puppy died of starvation.

Unfortunately, the owner, who officials say admitted to being the sole provider of the puppy, was let off with probation and a single day served in jail. We, the undersigned, are calling on you to correct this injustice. Please see to it that this woman receive a harsher sentence.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. WHY ONLY ONE DAY!

    THE JUDGE MUST BE AN IDIOT!

  2. Put her in a cage and leave her to starve to death!!! She will have plenty of time to think about what she did to that precious little baby. NO SYMPATHY FOR HER!! NO EXCUSE FOR HER BEHAVIOR OR THE JUDGE’S SENTENCE!!! THIS WOMAN MURDERED THIS HELPLESS BABY! SHE DESERVES THE VERY SAME PUNISHMENT!!!

  3. This guy is a freak, he’s sick mentally ill! Only a very broken mentally ill person could do something like this. This freak is now feee to work in a daycare… maybe he’ll b in charge of lunch for the kids!

  4. WTF!!!!F-ing judge! She has kids! Wouldn’t trust her with children… She’s a miserable POS as is the out of touch judge!!

  5. I HEREBY SENTENCE Janice Mathis TO DEATH by sledge hammer… Anyone got an address??

  6. lynn woods says:

    the judge who gave her one day in jail is an idiot or they aren’t animal lovers this bitch should locked up and the key thrown away lock her up with animal lovers and see how she does she’s going to do this again

  7. Some judge! Throw her to the hyenas!

  8. ANOTHER WORTHLESS FUCKING HUMAN. HOPE YOU SUFFER THE SAME FATE BITCH!

  9. Maria Nowicki says:

    Put the woman and the judge in a very small cage and
    starve both sub-humans to death!

  10. Jeannette Allan says:

    This degraded wretch was obviously a psychopath since childhood, and who knows what untold cruelties preceded this one… this crime should have been treated like the felony it is. Judges like the one in this case are simply enablers to future acts of unspeakable cruelty. There will be Karma for this evil creature , and let it be ASAP, but in the meantime there must be a change in the law against human vermin like this.

    • Laurel Lazar says:

      Yes, judges like this ARE enablers. Next time she will harm or kill a human. Perhaps a child, since she preys on those smaller and defenseless.

  11. How on earth these some of the so called Judges does not have the damn common sense and the enough brains to figure out the Justice. May be they are idiots too.

    heartless cruel bitch

    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!

    • Agreed. It’s 2017. Nobody needs to be using animals for their skins or to fight or to chop them up into burgers or nuggets or any other vile thing as if they weren’t living, feeling beings who just wish to enjoy their natural lives. It’s way past time humans got off their self-righteous high horses and realized animals aren’t our property. Until this simple fact is honored, there will always be animals that we see as disposable trash, who will be used for whatever we can possibly take from them.

  14. JANICE MATHIS NEEDS TO BE SKINNED ALIVE FOR CRIMES ON BABY THE DOG NOW.

  15. Well, she was also fined $400 restitution plus court fees as well as 3 years probation at a cost of $100 per month. Plus she isn’t allowed to have/own, work with/around animals and is to not visit websites related to illegal animal activity. Justice has not been served as far as this POS not getting physically punished, but the judge wasn’t exactly a total slacker, either. One can hope she’ll screw up on her probation requirements and still get to spend enough time in jail to give “Big Bertha” a chance at her.

  16. Dawn Pettinger says:

    These judges are not worthy of being judges, because they have no soul or compassion, just hard hearts ..if the judge had children and pets, he would have made an example of this wicked beast who is a menace to society. If she done that to my dogs I would swing for her. I would kill her with my bare hands.
