Dear Chenango County District Attorney’s Office, 

 


      We, the animal lovers of your community, are signing this petition to demand that you take legal action against Matthew Franklin of Oxford, NY who cruelly and intentionally ran over a cat located in the Village of Oxford, NY, in regards to Agriculture Law #353/353a which states that 

 


“353. Overdriving, torturing and injuring animals; failure to provide

  proper  sustenance.  A  person  who  overdrives,  overloads, tortures or

  cruelly beats or unjustifiably injures, maims, mutilates  or  kills  any

  animal,  whether  wild  or  tame, and whether belonging to himself or to

  another, or deprives any animal of necessary sustenance, food or  drink,

  or  neglects  or  refuses  to  furnish  it  such sustenance or drink, or

  causes, procures or permits any animal  to  be  overdriven,  overloaded,

  tortured, cruelly beaten, or unjustifiably injured, maimed, mutilated or

  killed,  or  to  be deprived of necessary food or drink, or who wilfully

  sets on foot, instigates, engages in, or in any way furthers any act  of

  cruelty  to  any  animal, or any act tending to produce such cruelty, is

  guilty of a class A misdemeanor and for purposes  of  paragraph  (b)  of

  subdivision  one  of section 160.10 of the criminal procedure law, shall

  be treated as a misdemeanor. 

 


      While we acknowledge that the Village of Oxford, NY Police have charged Mr. Franklin with a traffic misdemeanor of leaving the scene of an accident without reporting it to police, they have decided that Mr. Franklin’s actions do not rise to the level of animal cruelty. We, the members of the community, believe that the video shows gross misconduct on the part of Mr. Franklin and have attached it to this petition for your viewing.
