Dog Reportedly Starved Until Forced to Ingest Rocks Deserves Justice

Target: Mr. David E Sullivan, District Attorney of Franklin County, Massachusetts, USA

Goal: Prompt, decisive legal action on behalf of a dog allegedly starved until he was forced to eat rocks.

An appalling case of alleged animal cruelty involving Conrad, a 5-year-old pit bull mix, took place in Franklin County, Massachusetts. Conrad was allegedly subjected to unimaginable suffering, including severe malnutrition, untreated broken bones, and the ingestion of rocks, all of which led to his emaciated and perilous condition.

Yarras P. Fletcher and Aliah K. Rivera, both residents of Greenfield, have been charged with two counts each of felony animal cruelty for their actions. These allegations demonstrate a flagrant disregard for the welfare and rights of a defenseless animal under their care.

Greenfield police and the MSPCA’s Law Enforcement Division reportedly worked together to rescue Conrad after concerned witnesses reported his dire circumstances. Upon investigation, it was apparently revealed that the dog had not only endured physical torment but also lived in a state of perpetual neglect.

The cruelty allegedly inflicted upon Conrad is reprehensible and demands a strong response from the legal system. Animal cruelty is a crime that not only harms innocent creatures but also reflects a disturbing lack of empathy and respect for life. Demand action now.


Dear Mr. David E Sullivan,

We, the undersigned, write to you with a sense of urgency and deep concern regarding the distressing case of animal cruelty involving Conrad, the pit bull mix from Franklin County. The horrific circumstances in which Conrad was allegedly found, emaciated with untreated broken bones and rocks in his stomach, are utterly unacceptable.

The charges brought against Yarras P. Fletcher and Aliah K. Rivera for felony animal cruelty must be pursued with the utmost seriousness. Their actions allegedly caused immense suffering and pain to an innocent creature. We urge you to ensure that the legal proceedings are handled swiftly and effectively, allowing justice to prevail.

Cases of animal cruelty are not only violations of the law but also indicative of a potential danger to society. People capable of inflicting such harm on defenseless beings may pose a risk to others as well. By holding these individuals accountable for their actions, we send a clear message that cruelty and neglect of animals will not be tolerated in our society.

We implore you to prioritize this case and ensure that the charges are pursued rigorously, with appropriate penalties if the accused are found guilty. Conrad’s suffering must not be in vain—his case should serve as a reminder that all living beings deserve protection and compassion under the law.

As concerned citizens, we look to you to champion justice on behalf of Conrad and all animals that may fall victim to cruelty. By taking decisive action, you reinforce the principles of empathy, compassion, and the sanctity of life.
