Justice for Dog Who Allegedly Had Tail Cut Off

Target: Chad M. Salsman, Bradford County, PA, District Attorney

Goal: Prosecute man who allegedly cut dog’s tail off and left the animal to suffer.

A Pennsylvania man allegedly cut his pet dog’s tail off with a knife and then refused to take the suffering animal to the vet. Instead, he reportedly gave the dog Tylenol and let the wound heal improperly, exposing the innocent animal to infection and disease. Sign the petition to demand justice.

Authorities were called to the home of Richard Armitage after he was reportedly seen outside, swinging a small, white dog violently around his head by the harness. When police responded, they apparently discovered the dog’s unhealed wound. Armitage allegedly admitted to cutting the dog’s tail off with a knife, giving the animal Tylenol, and then moving on as if nothing had happened.

Now in the care of the Bradford County Humane Society, the innocent dog will require surgery to heal his wound. Armitage, meanwhile, has been charged with animal cruelty. Sign the petition to demand that, if these accusations prove true, Armitage be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.


Dear District Attorney Salsman,

County resident Richard Armitage has been accused of horrific animal cruelty after reportedly slicing the tail off his pet dog and neglecting to take the injured animal to the vet. Authorities only discovered this alleged abuse after they were called to Armitage’s home after reports of more violence against the animal.

If these accusations are true, Armitage is a danger to animals and society as a whole. I ask that he be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law so that the innocent dog so brutally abused finally receives justice.

    To do this to an innocent animal is a crime. Animal abuse needs to be felony! A felony under the law so people doing things such as this will not escape the penalty the law of felony provides. No excuses, no explanations for nothing could make any sane person do something so horrible. This man knew the dog was in grave pain thus his offering Tylenol. Why would anyone do such a thing?

  2. All animal abusers internationally must have the death penalty implemented. A slow and agonising death is essential.
