PETITION TARGET: Assistant United States Attorney Tiffany Preston
Hanged, skinned alive, and decapitated, defenseless animals — including dogs and cats — suffered gruesome torture at the hands of one woman, who recorded the abuse and posted the horrific videos to social media, according to the Department of Justice.
In one Instagram message, the 19-year-old suspect Krystal Cherika Scott talked about slaughtering a pregnant Siamese cat and posted images of the caged cat, along with two kittens, according to CBS2. Another post showed a decapitated dog lying dead in a cage.
Scott is believed to have obtained the animals she allegedly tormented and killed from people looking to give away their unwanted pets for adoption.
Following a thorough investigation — which revealed numerous animal skulls and 15 captive live dogs and cats — the suspect has been charged with two counts of Making and Distributing Animal Crush Videos under the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act.
The person responsible for these reprehensible acts of cruelty must never be allowed to harm another animal again. Sign this petition urging Assitant United States Attorney Tiffany Preston to prosecute this case to the fullest extent of the law, including a life-long ban on having animals and an intensive psychological evaluation.
