Call for Justice Over Alleged Abuse of K9 Officer by Former Sheriff’s Deputy

Target: Christopher M. Carr, Attorney General of Georgia

Goal: Ensure strict legal action against those allegedly responsible for K9 officer abuse.

In a deeply disturbing case from southeast Georgia, Matthew Ainsworth, a former sheriff’s deputy, has been accused of harming a K9 officer assigned to him. The allegations surfaced after a report was filed claiming that Ainsworth reportedly injured the K9 officer while employed by the Long County Sheriff’s Office. This shocking report has sparked outrage and calls for immediate legal action against Ainsworth.

Further investigation revealed that Ainsworth, who previously served as a deputy in McIntosh and Long Counties, allegedly committed this act of cruelty. The K9 officer, transferred to a different jurisdiction, is reportedly doing well, but the trauma suffered due to this alleged mistreatment must not go unpunished. Ainsworth is currently held in Bryan County jail without bond, awaiting the ongoing investigation’s results.

It is crucial to address this alleged heinous act to ensure justice for the K9 officer and prevent similar incidents in the future. The authorities must take swift and decisive action against those reportedly responsible for such acts of cruelty. Legal consequences will not only hold the perpetrator accountable but also send a strong message against animal abuse within law enforcement. Prosecute this case to the fullest extent of the law.


Dear Attorney Christopher M. Carr,

We are writing to bring your attention to a grave matter involving former sheriff’s deputy Matthew Ainsworth, who has been accused of animal cruelty towards a K9 officer under his care. A report was filed alleging that Ainsworth injured the K9 officer while serving with the Long County Sheriff’s Office. This K9 officer has since been transferred and is reportedly in good condition, but the trauma apparently inflicted must not be overlooked.

The allegations against Ainsworth are deeply troubling, suggesting a severe breach of duty and trust. As a law enforcement officer, he was entrusted with the care and safety of the K9 officer, making these reported actions even more egregious. It is imperative that thorough legal proceedings are carried out to ensure justice and prevent future incidents of this nature.

We urge you to prosecute Matthew Ainsworth to the fullest extent of the law for the alleged cruelty inflicted upon the K9 officer. Holding him accountable is essential not only for justice in this case but also to uphold the standards of humane treatment within law enforcement agencies.

  1. The K-9’s have saved your and other lives. You should be thrown off the force and Georgia should get their act together and see that this never happens again. You spend thousands of tax payer dollars training these specialized dogs. Everyone in the state should be appalled and see that the offending officers are punished.

  2. K9 officers are doing an excellent job! This man was not. I wish we could let the K9 eat this stupid fool but that would set a bad example. Something just as bad must be in store for this past and disgraced officer. WE don’t even need to call him an officer was he is just a jerk and deserves no respect at all. I have no patience with something like this which shows beyond a doubt the dog us right and this jerk is wrong. How about feed him to wolves. So many states hate wolves due to their own lack of intelligence. But f we really want to give them a reason feeding jerks to wolves may work to stop breeding so many jerks! Animals have integrity but humans do not.

    I hope all K9 heros are assigned to kindhearted and responsible officers that truly love and respect animals. Canines are smart animals, they are trainable .. no need to resort to harsh and cruel inhumane training methods! This vile and compassionless sick perp Matthew Ainsworth ought to be shamed, punished and permanently banned from handling animals permanently moving forward. Revoke all his future licenses that render him the right to deal with animals please!
