On July 2nd 2008 animal control officers responded to a complaint of a foul odor coming from Mr Tyrell Suggs apartment. Upon investigation of Mr Suggs apartment his 3 year old male doberman pincher, named Omar was found dead inside of a closet, left with out food and water for weeks. Ironically enough, Omar was left because Mr Suggs was in arrested and in jail. However, Mr Suggs had numberous opportunities to make other arrangements for Omar. He could had informed the arresting officer that his dog was in the closet, he could have notified a family member or friend that Omar was there and asked them to care for him. He could have even informed correctional officers about Omar. He could have even contacted us as our rescue is less than 5 miles from Mr Suggs home, we would have gladly taken him in. Instead he chose to leave him there in a dark closet with no food, no water,forced to lay in his own waste with no way to escape. Death for this poor soul must have been a relief.
We, the undersigned, respectfully ask that the court punish Mr Suggs to the full extent that the law will allow. We also ask that the court take into consideration the suffering that Omar endured in the days and weeks that led up to his death. We further ask that court punish Mr Suggs to the full extent that the law will allow because there is a direct correlation between animal abuse and other crimes. People that abuse animals very seldom stop there.
