Petitioning Essex County Commonwealth's Attorney

Handle the brutal killing of 13 alpacas @ Upright Farm as a criminal matter


Dog owners should realize that if they allow their animals to roam loose they will have to take responsibility for their dogs actions. If not, this would be setting a bad example if there are no consequences to the owners and these animals are allowed freed only to perhaps kill again helpless livestock, a child or adult that cannot defend themselves.

Handle the brutal killing of 13 alpacas at Upright Alpaca Farm as a criminal matter

If the owner can not be held liable criminally then we need to change the laws that require animals that can do harm to be leashed and then at that time the owners will be held responsible. Also under no circumstances should animals that have been proven to attack be allowed back with the owners.
