Pit Bull Reportedly Found Locked in Crate and Too Weak to Walk Deserves Justice

Target: Tracy Graham Lawson, District Attorney for Clayton County, Georgia

Goal: Demand that the woman who allegedly starved and neglected a pit bull receives the maximum penalty possible by law, if convicted.

A pit bull suffered life-threatening malnourishment when he was allegedly starved and neglected. The poor dog was so emaciated, veterinarians stated, that he could not even stand up on his own. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

“This is the worst abuse I’ve ever seen,” said Cinnamon Koch, a rescue worker. A good Samaritan rescued Mikey, a gray pit bull, after he found him locked in a crate in the breezeway of an apartment building. Mikey’s ribs reportedly showed through his skin and he was so malnourished that he could not even stand. Records show that Mikey’s owner, Jakeisha Tilley, had previously received two citations from authorities after Mikey was found on her patio without access to food or water.

Clayton Animal Control took custody of Mikey and he is recovering. Tilley has been charged with aggravated animal cruelty and she remains in jail. Sign below and demand that Tilley receives the maximum penalty possible by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Lawson,

A pit bull was reportedly starved almost to death in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The dog’s ribs showed through his skin, veterinarians stated, and he was too weak to stand. We demand justice for this innocent dog.

Police charged Jakeisha Tilley with aggravated animal cruelty after she allegedly starved and neglected her dog. Mikey, a gray pit bull, was reportedly rescued by a maintenance worker who found him locked in a crate outside of his apartment building. Mikey suffered malnourishment so severe that he could not stand or walk on his own, veterinarians stated, and his ribs showed through his skin. Mikey is recovering thanks to the help of Clayton County Animal Control. Tilley remains in jail awaiting her hearing.

The person who caused this poor dog so much suffering must be punished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. Disgusting. Can we even imagine the poor animals suffering? No animal should have to suffer.

  3. THIS WOMAN( A PIECE OF SHIT)!!! NEEDS TO BE PUT TO DEATH FOR WHAT SHE DID TO THIS POOR HELPLESS DOG.I JUST CAN’T BELIEVE NOW HUMANS ARE TREATING DOGS.

    They should enact An Eye For An Eye Law, giving abusers a taste of their own medicine. I believe it’s the only way they will learn. And a lifelong ban from ever owning an animal.
    Humans can be so cruel, to think inflicting pain, or starvation to an innocent animal, is ok.
    ANY abuser….child abuser, elder abuser, or animal abuser…..
    Should be “Do onto others as they have done onto you.”
    Let there be Justice for this sweet innocent dog.
