Potbelly Pig Reporting Abandoned to Starve With Infected Wounds Deserves Justice

Target: Wayne County District Attorney A.G. Howell

Goal: Ensure woman accused of abandoning her potbelly pig to starve receives the maximum punishment.

A woman reportedly left her potbelly pig behind when she moved to her new home. There are no details yet on how long the pig, now named Patrick, was alone, but apparently he was severely malnourished, suffered from multiple infections, and had very overgrown hooves and tusks. Police in Damascus Township, PA arrested a suspect on counts of aggravated animal cruelty.

The pig was immediately taken to Billy’s New Hope Barn Inc. for veterinary care. Fortunately, he has made an almost complete recovery after his reported trial, besides a minor issue with balance that may stem from an ear infection. Had an anonymous tip not been called in, the outcome may have been very different. The investigation is still ongoing.

Potbelly pigs may seem like self-sufficient animals, but they require a lot of preventative care and domesticated pets should never be left to fend for themselves. Sign the petition below to demand that, if found guilty, the accused will receive the maximum penalty for the alleged crimes.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear A. G. Howell,

Officers in your jurisdiction recently arrested Calin Joan Riffle on counts of aggravated animal cruelty. Police had received an anonymous tip regarding a potbelly pig, and they reported finding that he’d been abandoned by a woman when she moved away. The pig, Patrick, apparently was malnourished, had multiple infections, and suffered from pain associated with overgrown tusks and hooves. The pig was taken in by Billy’s New Hope Barn Inc., and has made a near-fully recovery aside some minor balance issues.

While things may have turned out okay in the end for Patrick, he suffered needlessly due to the suspect’s alleged abandonment and the law should make an example out of her. Please ensure the accused receives the maximum punishment, if found guilty, both as justice for Patrick and to ensure that others do not repeat this terrible mistake.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Real responsible pet owner there, NOT!! Poor Patrick didn’t deserve you or his neglect. Pets rely on humans and unfortunately he had the wrong one!! Karma

  3. This MONSTER must be punished for her wicked and callous act. She must never be allowed to keep animals again. JUSTICE for this poor pig!

  4. Once she decided to take on the responsibility of adopting a pig it was also her responsibility to rehome him if she could no longer take care of him. She should be ashamed for just abandoning the poor thing. I’m just happy Patrick is going to be ok. Please go for the maximum penalty, she deserves it!

  13. Pet abandonment is one of the most irresponsible crimes committed by humans. It is like these people have no conscious in the fact that they are abandoning a living being that is reliant on human care. These are intentional and planned out crimes. Luckily, in this case, Calin Joan Riffle was arrested for aggravated animal cruelty.
