Serve MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE Judicial Punishment for Animal Cruelty in the State of Wisconsin.

      Sid R.

      Wausau, WI

Human beings get away with harming, killing, and abusing animals everyday. When someone finally gets caught, they should be tried to serve the highest amount of time, for their offense. Sean tortured and eventually killed a domesticated German Shepherd, Mary.

Here is the official criminal complaint: http://ftpcontent.worldnow.com/waow/Janus_Complaint.pdf

After reading that story, how angry are you? Exactly.

Sean should NOT get off lightly. She should pay the full amount of fines and serve the maximum sentence for her crime. There is NO excuse for torturing and murdering a helpless animal. Let's set an example for the people of Wisconsin... animal cruelty will NOT be taken lightly in this state.

Share your opinion and help Mary have a voice! For more information on how to write a letter to the Marathon County DA and Judge assigned to the case, click on the blog below. A friend is following the case closely in her daily blog.

A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Oct. 31

      As a child, serial killer and rapist Ted Bundy—ultimately convicted of two killings but suspected of murdering more than 40 women—witnessed his father’s violence toward animals, and he himself subsequently tortured animals.
