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]

  1. Phillip P Riley, must have both legs broken, and balls cut off so he cant spawn more scum loike him!.. If the law system is weak and this subhuman walks, i hope a local soes to Philip P Riley what he truly deserves!!!!!

  2. It is shameful this petition even exists… Having to beg the authorities to do their job… The job the public pays them to do! They need to be fired and people with compassion and common sense need to be hired! What is wrong with them?
    I agree with the people that say break his leg and throw him in a cell to rot!

  3. This CRUEL IDIOT NEEDS TO HAVECALL OF HIS BONES IN BOTH OF HIS LEGS BROKEN INTO TEENY TINY PIECES!!! HE should NEVER BE ALLOWED TO OWN, ADOPT, AND BE NEAR ANOTHER DOGS, PUPPIES, AND ALL OTHER ANIMALS!!!!!!

  4. THE SON OF A BITCH THAT DID THIS SHOULD HAVE BOTH LEGS BROKEN AND THEN PUT IN PRISON AND NEVER ALLOWED TO OWN ANY ANIMALS.

      “Never allow to own any animals” — that’s hard to enforce, as he can relocate somewhere else and easily get away with murder. Better still would be send him Or sentence him to 10 years in prison, and not release him earlier for good behavior.

  5. Unacceptable. This is totally ridiculous. . He needs both his hands broken . Why waste time on useless people like this .put him in jail .

  6. I see and I agree with all those people who are angry that someone can harm a dog. I believe that Karma (what you put into the universe come back to you)
    is real and I hope and wish that cruel crap will get what he deserve.

    I AM WONDERING ‘WHY HE DID IT! WHO REPORTED IT? COULDN’T THAT SOMEONE HAVE TAKEN THE DOG TO A VET FOR IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE?
    WHAT A BAD LUCK FOR THE POOR ANIMAL TO HAVE FALLEN INTO THE HANDS — AND I THINK THAT 3 YEARS IN PRISON, IS TOO SHORT… 10 YEARS WOULD BE MORE REASONABLE.

  8. sylvia vegas says:

    10 YEARS PLUS A $10,000 FINE!

  9. Agree all comments break this fuckers legs and arms.

  10. 3 years is absolutely TOO SHORT! 10-15 years for such scumbags. If this human monster broke human legs, would he also get 3 years only. This DEFENSELESS DOG must be REMOVED from this HUMAN MONSTER IMMEDIATELY, and FOUND a LOVING HOME!!
    MAX JAIL for this extremely EVIL MONSTER!  I lack words to express my indignation and anger at this DESENSITIZED, DEHUMANIZED, SADISTIC and highly PSYCHOPATHIC evil Satan!  How can someone INFLICT such EXTREME SUFFERING on an innocent, and defenseless animal. The pain this dog went through is of DEVILISH DIMENSIONS!! This poor creature deserves JUSTICE.
    ANIMAL VIOLENCE shall be treated as any human violence. Animals SHALL NOT BE VICTIMS — and they deserve JUSTICE just like YOU and ME!
    MAX JAIL FOR SADISTIC MONSTER! HE MUST BE FORBIDDEN FROM EVER OWNING ANIMALS AGAIN!

  12. I TOTALLY AGREE WITH MOST OF YOUR OPINIONS. HOWEVER, THIS PRICK SHOULD HAVE BOTH HIS LEGS BROKEN IN SEVERAL PLACES AND HIS WORTHESS BALLS CUT OFF.

THIS PRICK SHALL BURN IN HELL AND VERY, VERY DAMN SOON I PRAY!!!

  13. WHAT IS CLEARLY WRONG WITH THIS EVIL, WICKED, SO CALLED, HUMAN BEING?! Dont wait for the useless authorities, go and get the animal out of there and sort it out. So called authorities are just disguised in yet more red tape and do very little or nothing. Every minute is a minute too long to be left. PLEASE someone do something immediate to help get this defenceless animal out.

  14. Why adopt a dog and then abuse the animal?

    I live in a county close to where this jerk lives. I’m ashamed that we have people like him anywhere close to us. What a shame that he can’t be forced to bear the pain of his leg being broken with no treatment for a week or so. Sure hope this pup gets justice and the jerk gets punished big time.

  18. There has to be a special place in hell for this guy
    Just wait until he gets in prison because I know no Judge is ever going to let this slide!!!!!
    God bless this poor dog God will find him a wonderful home.
    This AH should never ever have a pet again

  19. This evil,mentally deranged severe dog abuser must have the death penalty i9mplemented.A slow and agonizing death is essential. I am ready, willing and able to help perform this procedure on this vile, evil cretin!!
