Puppy Kicked to Death Deserves Justice

Target: Julia R. Bates, County Prosecutor for Lucas County, Ohio

Goal: Demand that the children who kicked a puppy into the air, causing fatal injuries, receive the maximum penalty possible by law.

A puppy suffered fatal injuries after she was brutally kicked into the air like a football. The children responsible are still at large. Demand justice for this innocent puppy.

“What makes this barbaric crime even more abhorrent is that, apparently, there were adults standing around watching,” stated Stephen Heaven, President/CEO of the Toledo Area Humane Society. The six unidentified children, described as 10-12 years old, fled the scene after they kicked the 3-pound puppy into the air like a football. A good Samaritan rescued the seriously injured miniature pinscher and brought her to the Humane Society for treatment. The puppy sustained a broken back and broken ribs. She later died due to fluid filling her lungs.

Officers are investigating, but they have not identified any suspects. A reward has been offered for any information leading to the prosecution of those responsible. Sign below and demand that these children are prosecuted for this cruelty and that they receive the maximum penalty possible by law.


Dear Prosecutor Bates,

A puppy was kicked to death in a horrific case of animal cruelty. The 3-pound dog suffered fatal injuries when a group of 10-12-year-old children kicked her into the air. We demand justice for this innocent puppy.

Several adults merely looked on as five to six children punted a miniature pinscher puppy into the air like a football. They then fled the scene, leaving a good Samaritan to rescue the seriously injured puppy. A thorough examination, conducted at the Toledo Area Humane Society, showed that the puppy suffered a broken back and broken ribs in the assault. Fluid then filled her lungs, leading to her death. The children responsible for this cruelty have not yet been identified. The Humane Society has offered a $15,000 reward for anyone who can provide information leading to their prosecution.

These children are a danger to animals and they must be punished. We demand that you prosecute those responsible for this puppy’s death and seek the maximum penalty possible.

  1. We can all make more compassionate choices in everything that we do (plant based diet, not wearing fur/leather, not supporting animal experimentation, not buying glue traps or going to animal circuses)… No animal deserves to suffer. This is sad.

  2. Gigi Middlebrook says:

    The fact that this was done by children chills me to the core. God help us.

  3. Catherine Emerson says:

    Someone hand in those little fuckers and as for the adults I’d gladly kick the stools away.

  4. Death wish for these vile repulsive brats.I suggest we meet face to face.OH YESSSSS!!!!!

  5. Little sociopaths, and feckless adults. So-called adults. I saw a video of some jerk kicking a small cat as though she was a football. The hate I feel is difficult to explain. The puppy suffers, we suffer as a result, the monsters live on to perform another atrocity another day.

  6. I blame the adults in attendance who were doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to supervise these children and stop their vicious attack. They should be criminally prosecuted. The parents of the children (if they are different individuals) should also be investigated. It is clear these children have had ZERO guidance from the adults in their lives who appear criminally negligent at best. Children do not become twisted psychopaths on their own; adult guidance and leadership is required to raise a human, as opposed to a monster.

  7. Gigi Middlebrook says:

    Find all of the children that did this and prosecute them as adults. They deserve NO MERCY. Get them out of society.

  8. As horrid as the death of this innocent puppy is the real horror show is what these same kids will do now that they have brazenly done this and not a single adult came forward to stop them or to turn them in for proper punishment and accountability. All of them, kids and adults, should be found and charged with animal cruelty and prosecuted.

  9. This is so truly abhorrent it is physically sickening to any normal human being. Those sociopathic children already have dead hearts and minds,and being enabled by adult onlookers makes this vicious, senseless cruelty even more appalling. That poor innocent little creature must have suffered so much, and all she wanted in her short life was cuddles and love, well she is wagging her tail in a far kinder place now… as for those examples of human excrement living among us, they should be treated as the felons they are despite their youth, the evil is in them, and may Karma catch up with every single one of them soon.

  10. These adults should go to prison and never come out. Their crazy children didn’t care, they’re 10-12,! Send them to juvenile.
    Too bad the Good Samaritan didn’t come in sooner.
    Find them and punish them, make them pay the 15,000 reward back plus more. Picking on a 3lb puppy.

    “If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals.” Albert Einstein
    “Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness of character; and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.” Authur Schopenhauer
    “If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.” St. Francis of Assisi

  12. Alice Knight says:

    These kids need to be prosecuted for this horrible act of animal abuse. These kids knew what they were doing. As well as any by-standers such as the adults, should be prosecuted as well for allowing this abuse to continue.
