Punish Man Who Allegedly Cut Dog’s Neck with Knife

Target: Michael Cochrane, Prosecutor for Wyoming County, West Virginia

Goal: Demand that the man who allegedly cut a dog’s neck with a knife, seriously injuring the dog, receives the maximum penalty by law.

A dog’s neck was allegedly cut with a knife in a shocking case of animal cruelty. A photo, posted on Facebook, shows the dog with a large bloody wound on his neck. Demand justice for this poor dog.

A photo of a seriously injured dog went viral, leading to the arrest of 32-year-old Ricky Hanshaw, Jr. Brutus, the dog in the photo, suffered a serious injury to his neck after Hanshaw allegedly cut him with a knife. The cut was dangerously close to Brutus’s main artery and his voice box, police stated, requiring him to have surgery to repair his injuries.

Wyoming County Paw Patrol took Brutus into their custody and he is recovering. A second uninjured dog was also taken from Hanshaw’s care. Hanshaw was charged with animal cruelty and criminal invasion of privacy. He is reportedly on a no-bond hold due to his violation of parole. Sign below and demand that Hanshaw receives the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.

  10. This guy is a cruel,vile,evil monster and must be treated as such. Severely PUNISH this monster. Jail him, fine him a huge amount plus all the dogs vet bill until he finds a new home, ban him from ever having or being around animals, demand he get psychiatric help as he is really sick.

    WE DEMAND THAT THIS POOR DOG GETS JUSTICE FOR WHAT RHJ DID TO HIM.

  11. I HOPE SOMEONE IN PRISON DOES THE SAME THING TO THIS COWARD.

  12. I’d like to slice his jugular veins on both sides of the neck & let him bleed❗️😠

  13. Cut this freaks neck but make sure he does not survive!!!!!

  14. Sending thus piece of excrement to jail means that the taxpayer pays for his stay only to be released back into the unsuspecting public.
    The only acceptable justice in my view is hard labor incarceration until he dies.
