Dead Puppy Reportedly Beaten Into ‘Ground Hamburger’ Deserves Justice

Target: Benjamin R. David, District Attorney for New Hanover County, North Carolina

Goal: Demand that the man who is accused of beating a puppy to death on Christmas Day receive the maximum penalty.

A puppy died horrifically after he was reportedly beaten viciously on Christmas Day. The puppy apparently bit the suspect and then urinated on his shoe, leading to the beating. Demand justice for this puppy.

“Dr. Smith told us he had never seen an animal beaten so badly. He described the puppy’s liver as ground hamburger,” stated Lt. Jerry Brewer of the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office. Axel, a yellow Labrador, died of repeated blunt force trauma and internal bleeding after he was reportedly beaten by Christopher Anthony Simpson. Per deputies, Simpson savagely beat Axel when his girlfriend and her family briefly left her parents’ home. Her parents contacted the authorities after they learned of the apparent cruelty, and officers later found Axel deceased in the backyard.

The New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office charged Simpson with felony animal cruelty. Sign below and demand that Simpson receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear District Attorney David,

A puppy was reportedly beaten to death in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The puppy was apparently beaten so badly that his liver looked like “ground hamburger,” police stated. We demand justice for this poor puppy.

The New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office charged Christopher Anthony Simpson with felony animal cruelty after he reportedly beat a puppy to death on Christmas Day. The puppy, a yellow Labrador named Axel, belonged to Simpson’s girlfriend’s parents.

Per deputies, Simpson beat Axel to death after the puppy bit him and urinated on his shoe. He then reportedly hid Axel’s body in the backyard. Reports showed that Axel died of repeated blunt force trauma and internal bleeding. Per records, Simpson was also charged with animal cruelty three years ago in a separate case. Those charges were dropped. Simpson has been released on bail and is awaiting trial.

This man must be punished, if found guilty, in order to ensure the safety of all animals. We ask that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

    How awful this man needs to be charged and put in jail.It is not right. No one deserves to be abused. Justice for animals. I love animals and don’t want them hurt, tortured, or killed nor do they need to be used for selfish and ugly reasons.

  2. This man needs to have his liver look like hamburger! WTF
    Poor Axel, you suffered so much in your short little life 😢 RIP
    The bastard that did this to you needs to suffer as much as you did as far as I’m concerned. Animal cruelty is discusting and I am so tired of reading about it. The law needs to make people pay for what they do and it needs to be severe!!! Quit slapping them on the hand!!!! Throw them in a room and let some one beat the holy Fuck out of them!!!! These innocent animals don’t need to suffer like this anymore!!!
