Dog Reportedly Maimed and Stuffed into Garbage Bag Deserves Justice

Target: Dan E. Armstrong, District Attorney for Hamblen County, Tennessee

Goal: Demand that the couple who allegedly seriously injured their dog and then denied the poor animal veterinary care receive the maximum penalty possible by law.

A dog was allegedly horribly maimed and then stuffed into a garbage bag in a gruesome case of animal cruelty. The poor animal reportedly suffered multiple broken bones and burns. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

A Hamblen County Humane Society animal-control officer arrived at Joshua and Melissa Coffey’s home after he received a call about a dead dog on the premises. The officer entered a back room, where he reportedly found the seriously injured dog wrapped in a garbage bag and still breathing. A thorough exam showed that the dog suffered multiple broken bones and burns. Mr. Coffey claimed that his wife had injured the dog and that they planned to bring the suffering animal in for treatment the next morning.

The dog’s current condition is unreported. The Coffeys were arrested and charged with animal cruelty. Their bond has been set at $6,000. Sign below and demand that the Coffeys receive the maximum penalty possible by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Armstrong,

A dog was reportedly seriously injured and then left in a garbage bag to suffer. Per officers, the dog had multiple broken bones and burns. We demand justice for this innocent dog.

Animal Control officers charged Joshua and Melissa Coffey with animal cruelty after they allegedly hurt their dog and then denied the suffering animal veterinary care. Officers were originally called to the home with the belief that the dog had died. Instead, they reportedly found the dog breathing and in terrible agony. Per officers, the dog suffered multiple broken bones and burns at the hands of Mrs. Coffey and was then stuffed into a garbage bag. The dog’s current condition is unreported. The officer arrested the Coffey’s and they are being held on a $6,000 bond.

The people who hurt this poor dog must be punished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. This is a case deserving the most severe punishment and needs to be well broadcast to let people know what sort of subhumans these are.Burns and broken bones are not the result of an accident. This woman is an absolute witch and her useless husband is as bad. Prison-long time-fines-massive-case well publicised and a ban from ever going near an animal for their pathetic, useless lives.

    • I agree. We need to send a strong message and publicize it widely that anyone that abuses animals will suffer financially and be sent to prison. They should have restraining orders placed on them guaranteeing they stay away from animals.

    These two dirty, filthy monsters deserve the same treatment. Beat and torture them and deny treatment. They deserve to suffer.
