SIGN: Justice for Dog Chained So Tight, His Head Swelled to 3 Times Normal Size

SIGN: Justice for Dog Chained So Tight, His Head Swelled to 3 Times Normal Size

When authorities discovered Teddy chained up on a property in Duncan, BC, the dog was standing in a pile of mud and feces, unable to move more than a few inches.

Teddy was severely emaciated, and the tight chain was deeply embedded in his neck, creating a wound that grew so infected, Teddy's head had ballooned to 2 to 3 times its normal size.

Constables used bolt cutters to free Teddy, and rushed him to emergency care. But with the neck wound exposing his trachea and jugular vein, Teddy's condition was dire. Sadly, he died two days later.

Couple Anderson Joe and Melissa Tooshley now face charges for Teddy's abuse. We must speak out to ensure that the court takes this case of severe animal cruelty seriously.

Sign this petition urging Crown Council John C. Blackman to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law, and call for a lifelong ban on either defendant ever owning an animal again.

    Our companion animals are dependent on us to treat them kindly, feed them, provide them with affection & a safe place. These people failed Teddy miserably & need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law

    Die Menschen werden immer abartiger und das zeigt, daß sie in den Wahn umkippen, weil es zu viele sind. Das ist wie mit den grausamen Versuchen an Ratten, die man zu eng eingesperrt hatte und dann beobachtet hat. Es kam zu Kanibalismus, viel mehr Gewalt und Beißerei, zu unnormalen Geschlechtsakten auch von gleichgeschlechtlichen Tieren. Der Mensch kippt um zum wahnsinnigen Monster. Es gibt zu viele!! Der Planet könnte gut auf unsere Spezies verzichten!!

    A 36yo, in Massachusetts has just been sentenced to jail for a minimum of 8 years for just this sort of animal cruelty. We must set examples across the board so that ALL human scum, capable of animal cruelty, know they will be adequately punished. These two bottom dwellers need to be imprisioned for the same period of time or more. Decent society does not need nor want them on our streets!

    There are no words to adequately express my outrage at this horrific case. How that poor dog must have suffered! These two belong behind bars. They must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and never be allowed to have an animal again. I just hope and pray they don’t have children. What monsters they would be as parents.
