Petitioning Prosecuting Crown Attorney of Ontario Court of Justice

JUSTICE FOR "JUSTICE", LITTLE DOG BOUND WITH ELECTRICAL TAPE AND DUMPED IN A FIELD

"Justice" is a 7-year-old dog who was found abandoned in a field with his snout, neck, and ankles tightly bound with electrical tape. He was found by a Good Samaritan who was out walking his dogs. When Justice was found, he was having difficulty breathing as a result of the swelling caused to his snout by the tape. Veterinarians who subsequently examined Justice say he was mere hours from death had he not been discovered in the field. Michael Earl Hill, 32 years of age, has been charged with animal cruelty in this case.

THE PETITION:
We, the undersigned, respectfully request that the Crown Attorney proceed with the case against the accused as an indictable offence and, IF he is convicted, advocate for the maximum sentence possible, including a ban from owning, having the custody or control of, or residing in the same premises as an animal or a bird for the rest of his life, and restitution for Justice's care. We make this request recognizing that animals are sentient and vulnerable beings who rely upon the courts to ensure sentences reflect appropriate deterrence and denunciation of people who are convicted of harming them (as well as people who would consider harming them). Further, it has been well-demonstrated in research that people who harm animals have the potential to also harm humans, so our communities will be safer if the courts take animal cruelty seriously and impose meaningful sentences in such cases.
