Puppy Reportedly Stuffed in Bag Inside Locked Trunk by Alleged Drug Dealers Deserves Justice

Target: Columbia County, Washington Prosecuting Attorney Dale Slack

Goal: Give prison sentence to people who reportedly locked dog inside trunk in hot weather while trying to conduct a drug deal.

A puppy was allegedly locked inside a trunk for over two hours while the car was turned off in 70-degree weather. Riley M. Walters and Chloey A. Cairns were arrested shortly afterwards. They need to spend time in prison if they are found guilty of this heartless abuse.

According to reports, the animal was stuffed inside a zipped-up storage bag with the nose sticking out. A drill was allegedly sitting on top of the bag when police discovered the animal. It was also claimed the puppy was emaciated and that a pungent smell of waste was coming from the vehicle.

Officers further allegedly found 80 fentanyl pills, 500 Xanax pills, and 14.6 grams of methamphetamines inside the car, some of which Walters and Cairns apparently intended to deliver. They are both being held on animal cruelty and drug related charges. Sign this petition to demand they spend time behind bars if they are found guilty of these horrific infractions.


Dear Prosecuting Attorney Slack,

Riley M. Walters and Chloey A. Cairns were brought up on second degree animal cruelty charges and for the possession of drugs with the intent to deliver them to someone after officers allegedly found a puppy trapped inside a bag in their trunk and pills inside their car. They need to be given a strict legal sentence if it is found they committed these acts to better ensure other animals and people will be less likely to be harmed by their actions.

Officers stated that a heavy drill had been placed on top of the bag containing the puppy and that the animal was extremely thin. Authorities further reported that a strong smell of urine was coming from the car where the dog was found. Although they were able to rescue the puppy, the stress that the animal experienced during the alleged incident may prove difficult to overcome, as studies show that dogs in these situations oftentimes continue to show signs of anxiety, including aggression and avoidance, even after being adopted by loving families.

Walters and Cairns will be tried on animal abuse charges and for possessing substances with the intent to either sell or give them to another party. For these reasons, I demand you suggest they spend the maximum amount of time in prison if it is found they are responsible for committing these inexcusable crimes.
