Target: Chicago Animal Care and Control
Goal: Find and charge the owner of two neglected pit bulls for endangering them and the community
Two pit bulls were recently spotted in Chicago, Illinois wandering the streets of Wicker Park, the Ukrainian Village and the East Village. The pit bulls have been described as extremely skinny, hungry, and dangerous by residents who have encountered them. Given the condition of these pit bulls, it can be assumed that their owner has severely neglected them.
These two pit bulls have been left to fend for themselves; in all reported sightings their owner was nowhere in sight. As a result of being on the brink of starvation, these pit bulls have become extremely aggressive. Residents have reported witnessing these pit bulls attack domestic pets and stray animals. A woman from the Ukrainian Village reported seeing the pit bulls attack and kill a stray cat; the dogs then proceeded to drag the cat’s carcass down the street. Residents fear that if left alone, these pit bulls will only grow more aggressive and start to attack people.
The owner of these animals needs to be found and held fully responsible for the actions of his or her pets. It is unbelievable that an owner of two dogs would not notice that his dogs are missing. The owner of these pit bulls has made an irresponsible decision to neglect their pets and allow them to wander freely without any supervision. This individual’s deliberate act of neglect not only endangers the pit bulls in question but also the community.
It is extremely unfortunate that these two pit bulls have been placed in this situation. Any dog in this situation has the tendency to become aggressive, but given the negative stereotypes that surround the pit bull breed, it is highly likely that all the blame will be placed on these dogs once they have been captured. Action must be taken against the owner of these dogs for neglecting them and placing them in such a situation. Sign the petition below to demand that the owner of these dogs be charged and held completely responsible for the actions of his or her dogs.
Dear Chicago Animal Care and Control,
The two pit bulls that have been seen roaming the neighborhoods of Wicker Park, the Ukrainian Village, and the East Village must be found immediately. These dogs have been extremely neglected by their owner and are left to fend for themselves in the streets of Chicago. As a result of their circumstance, these dogs have become extremely aggressive and dangerous. These dogs must be found and captured before any more damage is done to domestic pets, stray animals, and the residents of Chicago.
While these pit bulls have gotten themselves into quite an amount of trouble, they should not be completely blamed for their actions. Their owner must be found and held fully responsible for their actions. These pit bulls are on the brink of starvation due to neglect from their owner. They are merely trying to survive on the streets, which unfortunately includes scavenging for food and guarding themselves or whatever territory they have established.
Please take this into consideration when you capture these pit bulls. I am urging you to realize that these animals were placed into a situation that forced them to act out in such a manner. Please take the action to place full responsibility on the owner of these dogs instead of the dogs themselves.
