Justice for Moose started this petition to Salt Lake County District Court Judge Honorable Katherine Bernards-Goodman

Moose was a 3 month old border collie mix puppy who was tortured for most of his short life before being beaten to death.  The alleged murderer is Mikah Johnson, 20, of Green River, Wyoming.  The abuse was so violent that neighbors were woken up, but did not report him to the police because they were afraid of Mr. Johnson.  Moose was repeatedly kicked, punched,  and sprayed in the eyes with Lysol for nearly two months.  Despite several trips to the vet the abuse continued unabated.  The necropsy showed poor Moose died from severe bleeding in his lungs and pulmonary system along with at least two incidents of blunt force trauma. He had severe eye damage from being sprayed in the eyes with Lysol. X-rays showed the dog also had a broken jaw, missing and broken teeth, and the puppy's liver was fractured in two places.  Johnson has been charged with 3 felony counts of animal torture, 4 misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty, and 1 count of domestic violence.  The domestic violence was against his ex-girlfriend who was trying to protect Moose.  

Please sign the petition to get Johnson the maximum punishment for his egregious crimes against Moose, a helpless puppy. We also want to raise awareness as Moose should not have suffered like this and his death was preventable had witnesses took strong action at the first signs of abuse and reported Mr. Johnson to the police and removed Moose from his care.
