Senior Cat Reportedly Thrown in Dumpster With Broken Legs and Displaced Hip Deserves Justice

Target: Los Angeles County, California District Attorney George Gasco’n

Goal: Justly punish man who allegedly threw old cat with fractured legs and out-of-place hip in dumpster.

An eleven-year-old cat, named Bow, was allegedly found in an apartment dumpster with two broken hind legs. Darion K. Hackett was arrested and charged with felony animal cruelty and two misdemeanors for allegedly not getting Bow proper medical care. He needs to receive the maximum penalty if he is found guilty to ensure more animals will not be harmed.

A veterinarian determined that Bow’s right back leg had not healed properly from a previous break and that she further had a fracture in her left hind leg. Doctors also said she had a bruised lung, a dislocated right hip, chipped teeth, and torn ears. Reports state that SPCALA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles) staff have been helping her to become physically rehabilitated. Bow is now available for adoption, and Hackett could spend four years and eight months in jail if he is found guilty. Sign this petition to demand he receive a prison sentence if it is discovered he committed these heartless acts.


Dear District Attorney Gasco’n,

Darion K. Hackett was arrested after his eleven-year-old cat, named Bow, was allegedly found inside a dumpster with fractured legs and several other serious injuries. He needs to be fully prosecuted if he is found guilty of hurting this innocent creature, so that other animals will be less likely to endure the same fate.

Besides the alleged fractures in Bow’s hind legs, she was also said to have broken teeth, ripped ears, a damaged lung, and a disjointed hip. The staff at the SPCALA have reportedly been working with Bow to rehabilitate her, and she is now eligible to be adopted by new owners. However, experts claim that an older, previously abused cat may have trouble adjusting to a new environment. For these reasons, we demand you seek the strictest possible punishment for Hackett if he is found guilty of abusing this innocent animal.

  1. Instigation of the death penalty is an essential procedure that must be performed on all animal abusers and nothing less!
