Newport, NC: Deputies and animal control officers were called out to the home of Gina Marie Alfano and Kevin John Diers after an anonymous complaint. There they discovered a gruesome case of animal abuse: an eight week-old puppy had been skinned and gutted, then fed to their other dogs. One dog was found eating the leg of the puppy. The other dogs were fed the puppy's internal organs and meat. Yet another dog was found dead in a cage.

It is unknown if the puppy was intentionally killed for this purpose or died from other causes. The puppy's remains have been collected for analysis.

Alfano and Diers were charged with cruelty to animals and failing to dispose of a deceased domesticated animal. Under North Carolina law, animal cruelty (§ 14-360) is a Class H felony.

The next court date for Alfano and Diers will be on January 6, 2012. Please sign to show your support that animal abusers cannot get away with such horrendous acts.

This petition respectfully requests that Gina Marie Alfano and Kevin John Diers be given the maximum sentence allowable under law and that they never be allowed to own animals again.

To:

Hon. Karen Alexander, Carteret County Judge
We, the undersigned, respectfully request that if found guilty, Gina Marie Alfano and Kevin John Diers, the couple that allegedly skinned and gutted a puppy then fed it to their dogs, be given the maximum sentence allowable under law and that they never be allowed to own animals again.

      People that commit heinous cruelty to an animal must receive harsh punishments because of the suffering that they inflicted on that animal and because they deprived that animal of a life! Society must send a loud and clear message that animal cruelty will be taken seriously as there is well documented evidence that animal cruelty is frequently a precursor to violent crimes against people! Consequently, if we want a society with less crime and people who respect the rights of others then we must hold people accountable for their cruelty against animals!
