Dog Who Allegedly Had Word Carved in Head With Machete Deserves Justice

Target: Lucas County, Ohio Prosecutor Julia R. Bates

Goal: Give man severest legal sentence for allegedly cutting dog’s head with a machete.

A dog was allegedly cut on top of the head multiple times with a machete. The animal’s injuries were so severe, veterinarians had to staple the cuts together. Whoever is responsible for this horrific act needs to receive the toughest punishment under law and be banned from being around animals to better ensure more innocent creatures will not suffer.

Harley Gear was arrested for the incident after officers went to his residence to do a welfare check. Once on the property, they reportedly found a dog with serious wounds and a machete that contained blood lying next to the animal. Stephen Heaven, head of the Toledo Humane Society, suspects the accused person was trying to carve the word hi as well as other things into the helpless dog.

Sign this petition to demand Gear spend time in prison and to further insist he no longer be allowed to be around animals if he is found guilty of this inexcusable crime.


Dear Prosecutor Bates,

A man was accused of carving a dog’s head with a machete. As a result, the animal needed staples for the wounds to properly heal. Harley Gear was charged with the crime shortly after officers went to his place of residence to do a welfare check and discovered the dog next to the bloody tool. It is important he receive the maximum prison sentence and that he no longer be legally allowed to have or be around pets if it is discovered he committed this act to make it so other animals will be less likely to be tortured by this individual.

The head of the Toledo Humane Society, Stephen Heaven, said that this was the first time he had ever seen this happen to an animal and suspected that the perpetrator was likely trying to carve messages such as the word hi into the dog’s forehead. Studies unfortunately show that abused animals oftentimes remain fearful of humans throughout their lifetime, making it more difficult for them to function well in a new family setting.

For these reasons, I demand Gear be given the strictest legal sentence and further insist that he be required to stay away from all animals if he is found guilty of this despicable crime.

  1. Here’s another asshole that needs the machete used on his f*cking head. What the hell is wrong with people – no animal is put on this earth to be abused and tortured by humans. Maybe if just once the god damn laws and the justice system were for the animals this abuse would stop – otherwise it only stops with a bullet and then the cycle would be finished. It is hard to believe that the laws still favor the abusers!!

  2. Michelle Taylor says:

    This vile, mentally deranged severe animal abusing scumbag must have the death penalty implemented and nothing less! A slow and agonizing extermination is essential for this vile cretin!

  3. Maria Nowicki says:

    Take the machete and carve the words “human garbage” on his head.

  4. Alice Knight says:

    This is really disturbing. I cannot believe how we as human beings could think about orchestrating such a cruel and painful act. Do we feel we have the right to do whatever we want to whoever we want? As I feel so strongly against any form of abuse, this person needs to be held accountable for his atrocious act of cruelty. Mentally disturbed or not.

  5. Elease M. Bradford says:

    Harley Gear is a barbaric, idiot for using a machete to carve into this helpless dog’s head. He needs to be severely punished. Get well soon fur baby and I hope you get justice.
