Punish Man Who Allegedly Starved 56 Animals to Death

Target: Stephen A. Zappala Jr., District Attorney for Allegheny County, Pennsylvania

Goal: Demand that the man who allegedly starved and neglected 56 animals, leading to their deaths, receive the maximum penalty by law.

Over 50 animals suffered and died when they were allegedly starved and neglected. The animals’ bodies were reportedly stuffed into garbage bags or left inside of cages. Demand justice for these innocent animals.

“They were laying on the ground, some of them in garbage bags, some lying dead in the cages. There were no live animals found,” stated Pittsburgh Police Officer Christine Luffey. Officers searched Dennis Safranko’s property, thinking that it was vacant, after they discovered the allegedly horrible living conditions. They reportedly found 33 chickens, 18 ducks, and five rabbits deceased. Thorough examinations revealed that the animals died from prolonged deprivation of food and water.

The investigation is ongoing. Safranko has been arrested and charged with 110 counts of animal cruelty. Sign below and demand that Safranko receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Zappala,

Over 50 animals allegedly starved to death in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The animals’ bodies were reportedly stuffed into garbage bags or left to rot in cages. We demand justice for these poor animals.

Pittsburgh police charged 52-year-old Dennis Safranko with 110 counts of felony animal cruelty after he allegedly starved 56 animals to death. Officers reportedly found 33 chickens, 18 ducks, and five rabbits deceased on Safranko’s property. The animals were kept in horrible conditions, officers stated, and they died due to prolonged deprivation of food and water. Per police, the animals’ cages were clearly visible from the street. Safranko has been arrested.

This man appears to be a danger to animals and must be punished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    The only true justice would be for Dennis Safranko to be put into a filthy cage out in a far and remote area, and deprived of food and water. One less POS the world has to worry about.

    What a horrible man! He must be punished to the fullest extent.

  3. IF ONLY ABUSERS COULD BE SENTENCED WITH THE EXACT SAME ABUSE (OR WORSE) THAT THEY GAVE THEIR VICTIMS, MAYBE THIS WOULD STOP!!!.

    Give him the maximum penalty … at a ‘criminal prison’!

    A criminal like him deserves to be in a ‘maximum security prison’ with the worst criminal inmates!
