Dog Allegedly Starved to Death in Filthy Crate Deserves Justice

Target: David F. Capeless, District Attorney for Berkshire County, Massachusetts

Goal: Demand that the couple who allegedly allowed their dog to starve to death in a locked crate receive the maximum penalty by law.

A dog died a painful death when the poor animal was allegedly locked inside of a crate and abandoned. The dog reportedly had no access to food or water and lived amongst feces. Demand justice for this poor dog.

North Adams police arrested Trista Williams and Jesse Leydet after they allegedly abandoned their dog, Tig, in a crate without access to food or water. Per police, Leydet’s ex-wife contacted them after she saw what appeared to be a dead dog through a window. Police reportedly arrived to find Tig already deceased inside of a locked crate. Feces littered the entire inside of the crate, and stacks of garbage stood six feet tall inside of the home, reports stated. A bowl of food and water sat near the crate, police stated, but Tig was unable to access them.

Williams and Leydet were each charged with one count of cruelty to an animal, a dog rabies vaccination violation, and a miscellaneous municipal bylaw violation. Sign below and demand that Williams and Leydet receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Capeless,

A dog was allegedly starved to death in a shocking case of animal cruelty. Police reportedly found the deceased dog inside of a crate with a bowl of food and water just outside of the locked door. We demand justice for this innocent dog.

North Adams police charged Trista Williams and Jesse Leydet with animal cruelty after they allegedly abandoned their dog inside of a locked crate without access to food or water. The dog, named Tig, reportedly lived in feces, and stacks of garbage were strewn throughout the house. The house did not have working heat, police stated, and bowls of food and water were just out of Tig’s reach. Williams and Leydet were released on their own recognizance and will answer their charges at a later date.

This torture and neglect cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Just disgusted with people! Can’t even call them humans! Why would you? How could you? Sickening!

  2. Lock both of these parasites in a crate with food and water nearby but unaccessible and let them experience the same dreadful fate as their poor innocent dog!!! I think the heater should also be on full blast! (Yes, seriously!) RIP Tig

    • My sentiments as well!

    • I agree with you 100%

      Agree. How deranged does someone have to be to leave food and water just out of range for the dog to access? If they have children, Child Protective Services better get involved. That poor, poor dog. They tortured him for entertainment. If they no longer wanted him they could have taken him to a shelter. But, that would have spoiled their fun, hearing the dog’s crying and wining and watch it slowly die.

  3. Omg so sad ,cruel. So they tortured the poor animal more by leaving food and water near the crate ,but dog could get it. Disgusting. Throw the bastards in jail already not this slap on wrist shit sentence. These abuses get. This is painful to read it’s on going it needs to stop. ENOUGH. Harsher punishment for the abusers we need to be the voice for the loving animals that have none. Please stop this abuse. Let these animals live the life they deserve. All abusers need to pay for there crimes.

  4. These two subhumans must be punished to the fullest extent of the law,jailed a fined,and to NEVER HAVE ANIMALS IN THEIR MISERABLE LIVES AGAIN.

  5. This is uncomprehensible. Why would they put out food and leave it out of the dog’s reach? This is torture pure and simple! These two are evil to the core. They knew what they were doing. They watched this poor creature slowly die when they could so easily have relieved its pain. They could have taken it to an animal shelter- but no. In my mind this is cruelty of the first degree. These sons of the devil deserve to forfeit their freedom for a very long time. What else are they capable of? I trust that you will take this extremely seriously.

  6. these creeps aren’t even human they should be both put away and make sure they can see food and water but don’t give it to them it’s about animal abusers got paid back the same as the tortures they put these poor animals through these 2 bastards should be put in with inmates that love animals and see how good they get treated do something about the laws for animals this poor baby RIP

  7. The ONLY punishment for the evil individual who starved this poor animal to death is to IN RETURN DO THE SAME TO THIS CREEP. Don’t waste time please do the needful asap. Such monsters should not be allowed to hang around & walk among the others in a society… These are the Vicious Criminal minded individuals who is there to destroy others & enjoy.

  9. They clearly left the food and water just outside the locked crate to torture the dog.
    These two scum should get the exact same treatement in return.

  10. OMG……TIG DESERVES JUSTICE FROM THE TWO MONSTERS WHO KILLED HIM IN SUCH A HORRIFIC AND PAINFUL WAY.

    RIP POOR TIG AND KNOW THAT WE DEMAND JUSTICE WITH SEVERE PUNISHMENT THAT IS ENFORCED TO THE TWO MONSTERS WHO KILLED YOU.

    Dear Sir,

    This is a case of physical and moral torture of an innocent victim. It is utterly unbearable.
    Psychopaths are to be discarded from our society. There is no other way to guarantee the safety of innocent beings who otherwise will become their victims.
    Will all due respect, please take inspiration of the case below where M. Greg Willis, District Attorney for Collin County Texas, obtained a 12 year prison sentence against another of those devilish dog torturers. Thank you.
