Justice for Raccoon Allegedly Set Ablaze and Suffering From Severe Burns

Target: Michael W. Morrissey, District Attorney of Norfolk County, Massachusetts

Goal: Secure rigorous legal consequences for the individual allegedly responsible for a raccoon’s cruel mistreatment.

A shocking case of animal cruelty allegedly occurred in Quincy. Reportedly, a raccoon was intentionally set ablaze on New Year’s Eve, causing devastating injuries. It is alleged that this barbaric act left the animal with severe burns across its stomach, back, and paws, with most of its fur either missing or charred. The raccoon’s plight has stirred profound emotions and a universal outcry for justice.

The raccoon, demonstrating remarkable resilience, has undergone two surgical procedures and intense care at the Cape Wildlife Center’s Weymouth hospital. Its injuries, particularly to its highly sensitive hands, reportedly meant it endured excruciating pain. Despite this apparent agony, the raccoon’s indomitable spirit shines through. Staff at the Cape Wildlife Center are diligently aiding its recovery, which includes enrichment activities and a specialized diet.

This appalling incident highlights the necessity for stern legal measures to safeguard animals. The alleged perpetrator, a Quincy man, has been charged with felony animal cruelty but pleaded not guilty. The prosecution of this case, involving the New England Wildlife Center, Quincy Police Department, and the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office, sends a vital message against animal cruelty. Demand robust legal action to ensure justice for the voiceless victim of this heinous act.


Dear Attorney Michael W. Morrissey,

A deeply disturbing incident of animal cruelty has unfolded in Quincy, where a raccoon was reportedly set on fire in a shocking act of brutality. The severity of this alleged crime against a defenseless animal demands your immediate attention and action. The raccoon appears to have suffered grievously, enduring extensive burns and intense pain, a plight that has evoked widespread public outrage and empathy.

The raccoon’s resilience in the face of such cruelty is commendable. However, it highlights a broader issue – the need for stringent legal repercussions for acts of animal cruelty. This case, with the alleged perpetrator currently pleading not guilty to felony animal cruelty charges, stands as a critical test of our legal system’s commitment to protecting the vulnerable. It is imperative that this case be pursued with the utmost seriousness to ensure that such acts are not tolerated.

We, the undersigned, urge you to take decisive action in this case. We call for rigorous prosecution and appropriate legal consequences for the individual allegedly responsible for this atrocious act. It is crucial that we send a clear message: cruelty towards animals is inexcusable and will be met with the full force of the law. We look to your office to uphold justice for this voiceless victim and to demonstrate our society’s commitment to compassion and justice.
