Man Accused of Intentionally Breaking Dog’s Leg Must be Punished

Target: Madison County, Illinois Assistant State Attorney Katie Warren

Goal: Give man prison sentence for allegedly fracturing dog’s leg purposely.

A Great Dane suffered because his owner allegedly broke his back right leg on purpose in January, and failed to get the animal veterinary care. Philip P. Riley was just charged with the crime. He needs to be given a prison sentence to hopefully prevent another similar tragedy from occurring if it is found he committed this heartless act.

Riley was charged with violating the Humane Care for Animals Act and with a count of aggravated animal cruelty. He could spend three years in prison if he is found guilty of this unthinkable act of animal abuse.

Dogs that have been abused by previous owners can show aggression toward other people as well as with other dogs. This can unfortunately lead to the dog eventually being euthanized. Sign this petition to demand Riley not only be put behind bars, but to also insist authorities confiscate his dog if they have not done so already.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Assistant State Attorney Warren,

Philip P. Riley was recently charged for allegedly fracturing his dog’s back right leg and not finding a veterinarian to fix the issue. He needs to be justly punished under the law if it is discovered he purposefully hurt this animal, to better ensure it will not happen again.

Riley was charged with aggravated cruelty to animals, which is considered a felony. He was also charged with one count of breaking the Humane Care for Animals Act, a misdemeanor in the state of Illinois.

The animal in question may be fearful of a new, future owner. This Great Dane may also later display aggressive behaviors toward other animals or people, possibly leading to a new owner either returning the dog to a shelter, or putting the animal to sleep. For these reasons, we demand you seek a tough legal sentence for Riley and that you also tell the courts he should not get his dog back or further be allowed to be around other animals, if he is found guilty of this thoughtless offense.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This man was totally irresponsible and cruel. Cannot understand how he could
    have deliberately done this to this beautiful dog. He should be imprisoned.

  2. Deborah Ryan says:

    I think someone needs to break his leg and leave him to suffer!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Joyce O'Malley says:

    Break the mans legs and put him in jail

  4. PEOPLE KNOW HIS NAME!!!

  5. I hope someone breaks his legs. What a piece of shit

  6. Felicia Scheuttig says:

    You alway hear if they are found guilty . I would like to see exactly how many people do go to jail. I’m from old school an eye for an eye. Pay back is a bitch. Break both his legs and maybe an arm. If people keep getting away with this crap then I’m gonna have no fear just like all the nonsense that’s going on the streets. There’s no punishment for their actions. You break your dogs legs and you just get a fine who cares. These Lewers have to be made a heck of a lot hotter make an example of people they might think twice about it

  7. Andrea Chisari says:

    When you put this fool in jail for only three years, please make sure you break one of his legs first. And don’t give him any more medical attention than he gave this poor dog.

    Madison County, Illinois Assistant State Attorney Katie Warren THIS SOB needs to do a long prison stint. Hefty fines as well. Plus his name must go on an Animal Offender Registry so that he never again gets to have an animal!

    This beautiful dog should have been immediately taken from his home and received veterinary care as well as rehabilitation for future adoption….any aggression should not be put on the dog but on the owner. SO DO NOT PUNISH THIS DOG!!!!

    This ugly human should really get his legs BROKEN. I hope it happens soon!!!! You will get yours and the LAW better not drop this!!

    I’m so sorry that this Great Dane suffered abuse at the hands of his owner. Philip Riley is a despicable, snake for intentionally breaking his dog’s leg. This animal didn’t deserve such treatment. Riley’s behavior is unacceptable and he needs to be punished to the fullest extent of the law. The Great Dane should be taken from Riley and he should not be allowed around any other animals. I wish the Great Dane a speedy recovery, a new home and I hope he gets justice.

  10. Oh how I want that guys legs and face Smashed in ! That poor pup! Wtf

  11. Another example of a lame-ass coward who will only attack a gentle, non-aggressive animal like this poor dog. Put him in any other situation and he would skulk away. DISGUSTING MUTANT, SORELY NEEDS TO GO TO PRISON WHERE THE INMATES KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH ANIMAL ABUSERS!!

  12. Renata Kuchinsky says:

    Riley is a monster
    Jail time.
    He should be kept away from animals

  13. TYPICAL COWARD, AND WE CAN EXPECT TO HEAR MORE FROM THIS MUTANT IF HE’S ALLOWED BACK IN SOCIETY!!! RELEASE THE POT-SMOKERS AND PETTY OFFENDERS FROM PRISON TO MAKE ROOM FOR SLIME LIKE THIS!

  14. Alexandre Engelen says:

    What would Riley think or feel if his leg was broken by another person?

  15. Get the dog to a rescue that can work with him to insure he recovers both physically and emotionally. I disagree with the article: Most abused dogs are totally forgiving and become wonderful animals…We have numerous formerly abused animals who are doing just fine!

  16. debra goldstein lustig says:

    PROSECUTE THIS SCUMBAG TO THE FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW AND HOPEFULLY SOMEONE WILL BREAK HIS LEGS. LET HIM ROT IN HELL

  17. SHAME ON THE BASTARD!!!! Eye for an eye!

  18. Well, well, well here we go again another POS on the loose to bully and abuse animals!

    Sorry but my belief is this BASTARD and ANYONE SIMILAR should NOT TAKE UP OXYGEN!!!!

  19. shari baker says:

    Please tell us that the dog has been removed from this monster ? The article doesn’t say that….

  20. This guy is a dangerous sociopath. Lock him up or he will kill a kid next.
