THIS COULD HAPPEN TO YOU!
Colorado Springs, CO: Jake and Lucy, two loving family pets, have been impounded since 2/1/15 because a neighbor falsely accused them of killing a cat. We have since learned that the Humane Society of Pikes Peak Region (animal law enforcement that brought the charges) had a veterinarian conduct a necropsy on the cat. The results showed that the cat likely was the victim of blunt force trauma by unknown cause which left one puncture mark. The vet specifically stated she did not feel the injuries were consistent with two dogs attacking the cat. THIS INFORMATION WAS NOT GIVEN TO THE DA and was only discovered by the defense attorney by chance on 3/24. For the past week the DA has had the necropsy and other records showing HSPPR was investigating the cat's owner for neglect and a prior cat found dead just two months before this happened.
The DA needs to drop the charges now! At least seven witnesses will testify Jake and Lucy did not leave their home on the night of the attack. The vet says the evidence does not add up. The cat's owner was being investigated for a prior cat death; of course she'd need to diffuse attention and blame some one else. This is a terrible injustice and has already cost Jake and Lucy's owners over $4000 in attorney fees, experts, impoundment and other costs.
Jake and Lucy's owner is facing a misdemeanor with up to six months in jail AND mandatory destruction of Jake and Lucy under the state statute if she doesn't continue to fight the charges. She is represented by Juliet Piccone of The Piccone Law Firm, LLC www.coloradoanimalattorneys.com
