Justice for Dog Allegedly Suffocated to Death in Restrictive Muzzle

Target: John W. Peck, District Attorney for Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania

Goal: Demand that the woman who allegedly placed a dangerously restrictive muzzle on a dog, leading to the dog’s suffocation, receive the maximum penalty under law.

A dog allegedly suffocated to death while wearing a dangerously restrictive muzzle. The muzzle reportedly prevented the dog from eating, drinking, panting, and breathing. The dog’s caretaker claimed that she used the muzzle because it bit her when she tried to take the dog outside. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

Ashley Santone left Tucker, her dog, with Erin McGough while she went away for the weekend. Less than a day later, she learned that Tucker had been found dead. Per necropsy reports, Tucker died of suffocation due to wearing a dangerously restrictive muzzle. The muzzle reportedly prevented Tucker from panting and breathing normally. The muzzle was reportedly placed on Tucker by McGough.

McGough has been charged with two counts of cruelty to animals. Sign below and demand that McGough receive the maximum penalty under law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Peck,

A dog suffered and died while wearing an allegedly restrictive muzzle. A caretaker reportedly placed the muzzle on the dog to prevent biting, but neglected to ensure that the dog could breathe and pant. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

Parker’s lifeless body was found just six houses away from his caretaker, Erin McGough’s, home. Parker went missing soon after the dog’s owner dropped him off and was never seen alive again. Per necropsy reports, Parker suffocated to death when a restrictive muzzle hampered the dog’s ability to breathe, pant, eat, and drink. The muzzle was reportedly placed on Parker by McGough to prevent biting. McGough has been charged with two counts of animal cruelty.

This horrific cruelty cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This woman MUST BE BANNED from animal ownership and prosecuted! Obviously this dog suffered immensely. Maximum charges per Pennsylvania law are demanded by The People. We want justice served and judges to start carrying out the law! NO EXCUSES ALLOWED, NO PLEA BARGAIN, PROSECUTE! BAN ALL ANIMAL OWNERSHIP, PLEASE DO YOUR JOB.

  2. Death penalty for abusive caretakers.

    The dog suffered for sure and had to show signs of struggling–pawing at the muzzle, writhing in torture. Prosecute this woman to the nth degree!

    I say muzzle the bitch and ban her from ever keeping a dog again, name and shame her on social media.. The poor dog must have been in agony while dying. What in gods name was that woman doing with such a barbaric medieval instrument of death , shades of premeditated murder….

    • Laurel Lazar says:

      That is what I was wondering too Dawn. Why did she even have a “muzzle”? I have had dogs all my life (I’m 62), and have never owned anything remotely similar to a muzzle. What for? And why was the dog found 6 houses away from the caretaker’s home? Just the same old shit, over and over.
