Punish Deputy Accused of Locking Dogs in Hot Shed, Leading to Their Deaths

Target: Alisha Johnson, District Attorney of Rockdale County, GA

Goal: Prosecute animal cruelty case involving three deceased bulldogs and a police dog to the fullest extent.

With extreme temperature swings as the new norm, cases of animal cruelty involving either sweltering or freezing conditions will tragically rise as well. Three American bulldogs in Georgia reportedly became victims of such a tragedy. Storm, Luke, and Lala were apparently found dead inside a 95-plus degree shed. And the man allegedly responsible for leaving them to this agonizing fate is a local law enforcement officer.

A grand jury indicted sheriff’s deputy Eric Tolbert on animal cruelty charges in connection with the aforementioned deaths, as well as the case of a police dog also under Tolbert’s care. The latter animal, named Aegis, was apparently discovered at the deputy’s residence inside a hot pen and in a neglected state. Fortunately, Aegis was alive, unlike the other reported victims.

Tolbert’s case only came under review after significant protests and calls for action from PETA. Sign the petition below to help ensure continued calls lead to a full and vigorous prosecution.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear DA Johnson,

Sheriff’s deputy Eric Tolbert’s badge should not shield him from responsibility for the three innocent animal lives that were allegedly ended under his watch. Each of the dogs in this animal cruelty case experienced a likely horrific and painful death in a shed that was said to be akin to being inside an oven. Worse yet, a police dog also reportedly almost fell victim to this seeming neglect.

It took pressure from PETA to help secure an investigation and a grand jury indictment. Please see this case through and pursue the maximum possible penalty in the event of a conviction. Do not plea the case out, and do not rebuff requests to make a permanent ban on pet ownership for Tolbert part of the penalty. Show that the life of every living being matters.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This mentally deranged scumbag dog killer requires instigation of the death penalty and nothing less. A slow and agonizing extermination of this cretin is essential!!

  5. Lillian Ingham says:

    Obviously he is a sicko and should not be an officer. He needs to be jailed as does anyone that tortures animals.

  9. Lock him in the shed. Let’s see how he likes it.

  10. Lawrence Holtzman says:

    Sick fucking cop. If he treats animals this way think how he treats humans. LOCK HIM UP!!!

  11. Patricia Howarth says:

    AND this piece of crap is supposed to protect us???? what a JOKE. he is a pathetic A-hole and should be locked up for good!!!!!!

    • I agree, I’ve zero confidence in a system that supposedly vets its employees sufficiently enough that deviants, such as these people, aren’t allowed on “the force”. It’s a fact that animal cruelty is linked to human cruelty, so how did people like this fall through to become one of those who are supposed to “protect and serve”? If you do this to animals, you’re likely, or will be, doing it to humans, how do they get in??? Where are these psyche tests and exams meant to keep lunatics like this out of a position of power, who can torture and kill effortlessly with zero to little consequence? It took PETA to get people to take this case seriously. Effin psychotic cops who wield weapons and power should not be near innocents, they belong in prison.

  12. Jeanne C Bradbury says:

    HOW is such a TOTAL MORON put in a position of authority??
    SOMEONE’S IDIOT NEPHEW???? And nobody KNEW this jerk should not be entrusted with AYTHING MUCH LESS LIVES??!!

  13. Jeanne Marie Cambouris says:

    I’d give money to see this non-human locked in the same shed the next time the temp hits 97 degrees!!

  14. Maria E Nowicki says:

    Lock him up in the same shed!

  15. We should judge people by how they treat the most vulnerable among us. The elderly, children, animals. This man is a law enforcement official? He should have no authority over anyone if he abused any living creature like this. Speaks volumes about his character, or rather, lack of. If he’s doing this type of thing ‘behind closed doors’, he has no business being a police officer. None.

  16. Cathy McCormick says:

    This so-called cop should lose his badge. He’s a pathetic idiot and has the intellect of a toddler! Give him the maximum prison time allowed for felony animal abuse! And, request that his prison is located in Death Valley and doesn’t have any air conditioning!

  17. Maria Lavorato says:

    BEYOND ALL COMPREHENSION!!!

    ZERO TOLERANCE FOR ANIMAL CRUELTY. MAXIMUM PENALTY. THIS IS MURDER!!

    NO MORE ANIMALS FOR LIFE. FIRE THE MF.

    REHOME AEGIS. GOD’S SPEED LITTLE BUDDY!

    YOU BASTARD …YOU DESERVE DEATH! SLOWLY IN A HOT STOVE! LET’S SEE HOW YOU ENJOY BAKING TO DEATH ASSHOLE!

  18. Sharon Rudyk says:

    OMG!!! DO THE SAME RIGHT BACK TO THAT POS!!

  19. Jaime Perez says:

    This is another reason people hate cops! This creep is supposed to protect all living things, he’s nothing short of a brutal murderer! Those poor dogs suffered horribly and didn’t deserve that ugly fate. Throw him in jail for the rest of his miserable, stinking life!!

  20. Ron Goldberg says:

    It should have been him that suffered that way.
