Justice for Dog Reportedly Strangled Until His Eye Came Out of Its Socket

Target: Phil Parsons, Jones County, Iowa Attorney

Goal: Seek the maximum possible sentence for man who confessed to strangling a small dog until his body went limp and his eyeball popped out of its socket.

An eight-pound Shih Tzu/Maltese was reportedly strangled until his body went limp and one of his eyes popped out of its socket. Officers say they found the poor animal behind a house with his eyeball out of its socket and bleeding. The dog had to be transported to the veterinarian for emergency treatment, but is expected to make a full recovery.

The owner, Krystal Keppel, made a Facebook post explaining what happened to her poor dog. Thankfully, someone saw the post and called the police. When detectives showed up to check on the welfare of the animal, 31-year-old Dustin Rickels admitted to them that he strangled the poor dog until he went limp. His excuse was that the dog had been using the bathroom inside the house and he chewed up a retainer. So, Rickels apparently thought strangling an animal was appropriate punishment. This man has no business being around animals if he’s so prone to violence that he would strangle an innocent dog. Please add your signature to the petition below to demand that Rickels receive the maximum sentence that the law will allow.

  3. Wth! Why is a petition even necessary. Prosecutor! Do the job the tax payers pay you to do!

  4. tina robertson says:

    This man needs to be hunted down and tortured

  5. The dog was supposedly using the home as his toilet? Is that because he wasn’t being house trained by the owner, or because the a$$hat who did this was too lazy to let the dog out? And why was something as dangerous to animals as a retainer left lying around? Nope, the creep is a POS and needs a big fine, no animals for life and some jail time that includes anger management classes. And most important, the Jones County authorities need to do their jobs.

  6. This scumbag needs a taste of his own medicine, preferably by someone HUGE a nd much stronger than he is. He also eeds psychiatric treatment for his sadism!

    F’ing s**tbag, someone needs to do the same to you you WORTHLESS AHOLE!!

  8. Can you believe that this piece of shit called and asked for his job back after being fired and told me to hear him out. As if there is any sort of explanation for this terrible act. Basically if this guy ever shows his face again he will be introduced to karma herself

  9. michelle taylor says:

  14. dustin rickles needs to be exterminated from the human race now.

  15. Susan Sperling says:

    Dustin Rickels should rot in hell. Don’t understand why the owner Krystal Keppels did not call police instead of someone from her Facebook post.
