Justice for 16-Year-Old Yorkie Allegedly Killed on Camera

Target: Lisa Smittcamp, District Attorney of Fresno County, CA

Goal: Prosecute man accused of killing elderly dog to the fullest extent.

A beloved 16-year-old family dog lost his life in an alleged act of animal cruelty. Surveillance footage apparently captured the dog, named Artie, being grabbed by a man outside of the property where the animal lived. The video seems to show the man moving away from the camera and returning a short time later with the now-deceased dog, whom he puts in a garbage can and leaves. Authorities reportedly identified the suspect as Aaron Cumpton, who now faces animal cruelty charges.

While Cumpton has been barred from unsupervised contact with animals, he was not jailed while he awaited legal proceedings. He has pled not guilty, despite the video evidence seemingly implicating him. This suspect also now faces accusations that he killed another pet dog while house-sitting for a different family. The dog in the separate case had apparently sustained severe and ultimately lethal neck injuries under Cumpton’s care.

This possible serial animal abuser must be held accountable. He faces up to three years of jail time. Sign the petition below to ensure he receives maximum punishment if found guilty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Smittcamp,

A camera outside a family’s home captured a horrific incident in which a man seemingly brutally killed the family’s pet dog and then disposed of the body like trash. Authorities believe they have the man caught in the video. Now, the legal system must do its job.

According to an acquaintance, Aaron Cumpton may very well have committed a similar offense of deadly animal cruelty on at least one other occasion. Please vet these new accusations and consider further charges if they prove credible. Most importantly, please pursue a penalty that will ensure this alleged abuser never has the opportunity to harm another living being.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. These vile and evil acts will keep happening unless prison sentences for crimes against animals go up 20 fold and these must include executions. Also fines will start at several 10K and higher, much higher. Also a prison stay will be charged. They will have to pay for their time in prison. fair is fair

    Take Mr. Cumpton out back and put him out of his misery. This is the definition of a psychopath if I ever heard one.

  3. Stop Toxic Masculinity Now! says:

    SOMEONE NEEDS TO STOMP ON THIS CUNTS NECK AND LEAVE IT TO DIE. STREET JUSTICE NOW! THE LAW CARES NOT! NEIGHBOR MS NEED TO TAKE CARE OF THIS TOXIC MASCULINITY WASTE OF AIR.

  4. No one has the right to do this to a living being. The man is obviously evil or insane. The problem is our justice system does not punish harshly enough, fine in extremely high amounts, and stop animals exposed to state by state laws some of which are quite meager. Animals need to have attorneys represent them! I’m not kidding. States need to recognize and execute much tougher laws and higher standards when it comes to animal abuse. The English approach is 10 years in prison, $10,000.00 fine and not being around any animal again for life. I think we should follow this British approach! This man deserves to sere 10 years and pay 10K while never being near another animal.

      There actually is an organization of lawyers that fights for animal rights in court. Might be Animal Legal Defense Fund, ALDF? They need support.

  5. Why is this man not in jail in the Bible God says killing an animal is the same as killing a man that’s the problem you take God out of our equation and the judges think they can do whatever they want but let me tell you those judges that let these people get away with murder even murder of an animal they’re going to have to answer to God in the end when they pass away oh yes I’m sure they will find an angry God on the other side and then their soul will end up in a miserable place which I hope they do

    • Carol Brandt says:

      Agreed, from a Christian. 👍

    • God let us eat animal so how do you think they’re supposed to be eaten?? People have no problem eating chicken, cows, lambs, fish, ducks and they’re killed in the cruelest way possible, but no one seems to care about that

  6. This evil,mentally deranged bastard dog killer must have the death penalty implemented.I am ready,willing and able to help perform this procedure!! A slow and agonising death for this evil cretin is essential!

    WHAT A ROTTEN SON OF A BITCH COWARD DESPICABLE PIECE OF SHIT – I WISH HIM THE MOST HORRIFYING DEATH THAT ONE CAN POSSIBLY IMAGINE BEFORE HE ENDS UP IN HELL!

  8. sylvia vegas says:

    HOPEFULLY HE IS KEPT BEHIND BARS FOR NO LESS THAN 10 YEARS. WE ARE ALREADY FACING VIOLENCE EVERYWHERE SO ONE LESS MURDERER WILL BE AN ACCOMPLISHMENT.
    TOO BAD THAT ALL ABNORMAL PEOPLE ARE NOT SENTENCED TO LIFE IMPRISONMENT

  9. Apparently this motherfucker has done this before. I hope he suffers MISERABLY before begging for sweet death to bring him relief.

  10. The monster named arron crumpton needs to suffer and die a horrible death for what he has done. Hopefully he will contract a disease that he has to suffer with for years and then dies in agony ……

  11. This piece of human garbage needs to be made to bite the curb!

  12. We MUST PROTECT our Animals like Artie — We have PSYCHOS in our midst — this is beyond sadistic, hateful, unconscionable & cruel — AND, immoral — CRIMES against ANIMALS must be taken SERIOUSLY — Aaron Cumpton MUST PAY for his crimes — do NOT let IDIOT get away with it — MONSTER will repeat
