Four Kittens Allegedly Beaten to Death by Teacher Deserve Justice

Target: Dade Phelan, Speaker of Texas House of Representatives

Goal: Require veterinary professionals to report suspected cases of animal cruelty.

Four innocent kittens were allegedly subjected to torture and brutal deaths at the hands of their caretaker. Graham Reid, a former high school teacher, has been charged with four counts of cruelty to animals in relation to the deaths of kittens Broccoli, Cabbage, Parsnip, and Carrot. Each young animal reportedly died in separate horrific incidents over a five-month period.

In addition to seemingly tell-tale signs of abuse such as broken bones, bloodied body parts, and cut tails, Reed allegedly confessed to killing his kittens in escalating acts of cruelty. The suspect apparently used various instruments at his disposal to beat and kill these poor animals, including scratching posts, metal bars, and litter scoops. This man reportedly told authorities that he committed the heinous acts to relive stress and because they made him feel “powerful.”

Most disturbing of all, this sick pattern of seeming abuse apparently escaped the notice of local veterinarians. A tip did eventually lead to Reid’s arrest. Before this moment, however, every kitten that died had reportedly been taken to vets multiple times. In each death, the suspect was said to give the excuse that the animals died at home. If veterinarians were required to report suspected abuse, these tragedies may have been prevented. Texas, however, is one of multiple states with no such laws.

Sign the petition below to demand legislators use their full power to save animals like these kittens from preventable horror.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Speaker Phelan

Four innocent living beings were failed by one system that seemingly looked the other way as their alleged abuse turned to agonizing death. Please do not let the legal system fail them in kind. Animal cruelty charges brought in Fort Bend County against Graham Reid in the torture and murder of kittens under his care cannot be diminished or dismissed.

Over a five-month period, this man (a former teacher responsible for the well-being of other innocents) allegedly brutalized these young animals with ultimately deadly beatings. In each case, he reportedly took the kittens to veterinarians and was allowed to make excuses for the visible signs of trauma on them. A mandatory reporting law (much like the ones applied to reporting suspected child abuse) for animal cruelty could have saved these innocent lives.  Cruel abusers cannot be given the opportunity to hurt another animal or person again. Please help prevent such horrible crimes by advocating for such a law as soon as possible.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Please do not take the matter of the horrific acts of this monster lightly. He
    deliberately tortured and killed these innocent animals. This man could easily do this to humans next … not to mention killing more animals.

  2. Execute him.

  3. Reading this article really hurt my heart. Give the most severe punishment possible to those who brutally kill those little creatures. Such lovely cats have no crime to do such a thing. I hate those kinds of wretches. die for the land

    This man was a teacher? He seems to be mentally ill. Yet that does not mean he is not accountable for the murder and torture of 4 kittens in his care. If the courts, judges, and attorneys don’t prosecute these cases to the fullest extent of the law these murders will continue. This man may be ill but he needs to be taken out of society and not allowed to have any animals even near him for the rest of his miserable life. Laws are vastly different in every state an I hope, due to all the torture done to animals, all states will have the same laws and enforce them to the letter of the law. Until then animals, like children, have no voice. We need the law to represent them!!!!!

  5. First starters that biatch needs to be fired oh, she needs to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and throw her ass in jail. Who does stuff like that? She is definitely unbalanced unstable and has probably tortured animals before. Lock her nasty ass up

  6. Evan Jane Kriss says:

    This monster must:

    Be PROSECUTED to the fullest extent of the law for multiple counts of egregious animal abuse and cruelty ending in death.

    Be BANNED from ever purchasing, owning, caring for or working with any animals ever again.

    HAVE HIS TEACHING LICENSE REVOKED NATIONWIDE

    Be BANNED from ever working with children anywhere.

  7. Your are a deranged sick person to do this to a kitten let alone 4 others! Id do the same to you! Give him prison time. If they let this sick fuck off I will be so pissed!

  8. This vile scumbag animal killer ,deranged scumbag must have the death penalty implemneted.A slow and agonising death is essential.

  9. Loraine Pretorius says:

    What I cannot understand in America why every state has a different law. A crime is a crime for goodness sake. Have one law across the whole USA that punishes these horrific sub humans. Have a web that lists people who do these crimes so they are named and by law can never be allowed to own or come near any pet EVER again. AND throw them in jail FOREVER>
