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.
Please contact the following agencies to communicate your support of animal cruelty charges in addition to signing this petition:
