Target: Booneville, Mississippi police department
Goal: Find and prosecute the criminal responsible for severely burning two puppies
Recently, two puppies from Booneville, Mississippi became victims of animal cruelty. These two puppies sustained severe injuries when they were burned with hot grease. The individual who committed this crime has yet to be found and punished. Action must be taken to ensure that this criminal does not get away with this heinous act of animal cruelty.
The two puppies, Cocoa and Smokey, were only three months old when they were mercilessly burned with hot grease. Large portions of their small bodies suffered, and continue to suffer, from the cruel attack. The puppies sustained injuries from deep burns and most of their skin has peeled away.
Wanda Jeter, the puppies’ owner, is completely devastated. She is struggling to pay for Cocoa and Smokey’s treatment; she is emotionally and financially “paying” for someone’s unnecessary act of cruelty against her precious pets.
While this crime is completely unforgivable, local authorities have not been able to take full action against the criminal due to a lack of evidence. Jeter and her daughter strongly believe that one of their neighbors is responsible for this crime; Jeter’s daughter was able to get a verbal confession from the suspected individual. Unfortunately, without concrete evidence or “proof”, there is little local officials can do in Jeter’s favor.
Justice must be obtained for these helpless puppies. No pet owner should have to witness their pets suffer from abuse while the person responsible for the crime is able to escape without proper repercussions. Sign the petition below to urge the Booneville police department to do a complete and thorough investigation of this incident until the individual responsible is found.
Dear Booneville police department,
Recently there has been an extreme act of animal cruelty in your city. Two very young puppies, Cocoa and Smokey, were severely burned with hot grease. The two puppies sustained multiple injuries and are still receiving extensive treatment.
Wanda Jeter, the puppies’ owner, is having a difficult time paying for the puppies’ treatments. She is suffering both emotionally and financially as a result of another individual’s crime.
No action has been taken against the person responsible for this heinous crime. This is completely unacceptable; justice must be attained for these puppies. I am urging you to conduct a complete and thorough investigation on this incident in order to find and persecute the individual responsible for this crime.
