Please sign and share this petition worldwide to demand this woman and her son never owns or handles another pet, ever!!!
If you can see the face of this beast, she is proud at the fact that she put her sweet, precious Chihuahua dog in a Ziploc bag, zipped it up, took a photo and posted the picture on Face book for all her friends and family to see! After a tip about the photo to authorities, Ms. Snell, 44 and her son, 21-year old Britton James Engel were arrested in Bernalillo County New Mexico. How sick that this woman, with the big smile on her face, involved her son in her warped activity to take the picture of the dog in a Ziploc bag!! “Say cheese and show how proud you are!”
Her son told police that his mother put the 8-week old puppy named “Baby” in to a baggie just big enough to fit the pooch because “she couldn’t get the little guy to hold still any other way” for the picture. It does not matter that this stunt could have killed the puppy!! The puppy’s nose was pressed against the sides of the bag, depriving it of oxygen.
Both the mother and son were charged with a felony and animal cruelty but people like this should not be allowed to own and care for an animal that depends on humans for love and care. It just so happens that Baby is now doing fine with another family member but the courts in this case need to guarantee that something like this never happens again; this woman has no idea how to love and care for a sweet creature that relies on humans for its well-being.
Please sign and share this petition worldwide to demand this woman and her son never owns or handles another pet, ever!!! We must gain justice for Baby and a much better life.
The Court System in the Bernalillo County of New Mexico – The Judge in this court case should have done much more to punish this woman and her son for the heinous crime of animal cruelty on this very young, sweet puppy. They should not only be put away and punished to the high extent of the law, please ensure that either of these people never, ever own, care for or handle another pet as long as they live. They obviously think animal cruelty is a laughing matter as noted by the disturbing photo on Face book. Please protect the animals and keep them away from these cruel people forever.
