Warrior was a kitten brought into the Unicoi County Animal Shelter in Erwin, TN on June 22, 2018. Allegedly, he was buried alive by Johnny Rogers.

Imagine it is dark. You can't see anything. You feel as though you are being crushed. You can't expand your lungs except barely. When you do breathe, you inhale dirt. You feel the weight continue to press down on you and crush your body. This goes on for 11 hours before you are pulled from the ground and gasping for air.

Warrior was rushed to the vet when he arrived to our facility. He stared off into space as he was slowly dying and gasping for air. He eventually died from his injuries while a veterinary staff worked to save him.

I'm calling on everyone to let the Assistant District Attorney, Todd Hull, know that this is not acceptable. His email is cthull@tndagc.org

Right now, Johnny Rogers is facing a aggravated animal cruelty charge, which is a Class E felony. It is punishable by 1 to 6 years in prison and up to a $3,000 fine. Tell Todd Hull that we want the full 6 years in prison and we do not want a plea deal. Our court date is October 8, 2018.

Sign our petition and email the assistant district attorney above to let him know you want the max sentence. Thank you for your support.
