PETITION TARGET: Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno

In a vicious and heartless attack, an alligator was brutally shot with two arrows by an unknown perpetrator, who cruelly tied the suffering animal’s snout shut.

Discovered in a pond in Fort Myers, the wounded alligator still had the arrows protruding from his body.

“The gator had two arrows impaled into [his] side and a rope wrapped around [his] snout,” SWFL Crime Stoppers wrote on Twitter. “The gator was safely removed from the pond by deputies [and] @MyFWC.”

No living creatures deserves to be the victim of such a horrific act of aggression. The perpetrator(s) must be apprehended to prevent further harm to other animals.

Sign this petition urging the Lee County Sheriff’s Office to fully investigate this distressing act of animal abuse and bring justice to this innocent animal.

Florida police are investigating the incident. If anybody has information about this crime please contact Crime Stoppers on 1-800-780-TIPS
