Dogs Allegedly Stabbed and Denied Veterinary Care Deserve Justice

Target: Peter F. Kilmartin, Attorney General for Providence County, Rhode Island

Goal: Demand that the brother and sister who allegedly stabbed three dogs, leading to the death of one, receive the maximum penalty by law.

One dog died and two more were injured when they were allegedly stabbed and denied veterinary care. Per police, the suspects stabbed the dogs when the dogs got into a fight, then waited seven hours before bringing the fatally injured dog to a veterinarian. Demand justice for these poor dogs.

The Rhode Island State Police arrested Julie McDougall and Paul Thibeau after they allegedly stabbed three dogs and then denied them lifesaving veterinary care. The suspects claimed that the dogs got into a fight and that they stabbed the dogs in order to defend themselves. The suspects then reportedly put the fatally injured dog into a crate and ran some errands before finally taking the dog to the veterinarian seven hours later. Veterinarians declared that dog dead upon arrival.

The Rhode Island Society for the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals has taken custody of the two surviving dogs. Thibeau and McDougall were each charged with one felony count of cruelty to animals and two misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals. Sign below and demand that they receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Kilmartin,

Three dogs were allegedly stabbed and then left to suffer in a shocking case of animal cruelty. One dog died because the suspects reportedly neglected to provide lifesaving veterinary care. We demand justice for these poor dogs.

The Rhode Island State Police charged Julie McDougall and Paul Thibeau each with one count of felony animal cruelty and two counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty after they allegedly stabbed three dogs and then denied them lifesaving veterinary care. Per police, the suspects put the fatally injured dog into a crate and ran errands for seven hours following the stabbing. When Thibeau finally brought the dog into the clinic, veterinarians stated, the dog had died. The surviving dogs are being cared for at the Rhode Island Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Thibeau and McDougall will face their charges at a later date.

This horrific neglect must be punished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    If convicted? They should be in jail already …
