Alexander Atkind should be expelled from Cornell University for his heinous attack on a puppy that left the puppy with permanent physical damage (and probably emotional damage as well).
Cornell University is among the most prestigious institutions of higher learning in the USA and the world. Alumni of this institution are world leaders in their fields, very productive citiizens and generally good people. Unfortunately, a person who does not fit this profile has slipped through the cracks and been allowed to attend CU, this person is Alexander Atkind.
Mr. Atkind was left to care for the pet of an acquaintance. The puppy chewed a wire that belonged to Mr. Atkind, so in return, Mr. Atkind severely beat the dog, leaving a gaping laceration through which the animals skull could be seen. This, however, was not enough for Mr. Atkind. He then proceeded to pour laundry detergent and bleach over the injured puppy, causing permanent eye damage as well as chemical burns to the face, groin, paws and back of the animal. The animal suffered bloody stools from having ingested the bleach trying to clean its wounds.
When questioned, Mr. Atkind stated that the incident meant nothing to him and that he would indeed do it again. He also stated that he knew how the justice system works and he was confident that he would receive a slap on the wrist and be sent on his way.
It would be tragic if his predictions were correct. This student should be expelled from Cornell, a College well-known for its veterinary program. It would be an insult to the reputation of this University to have this monster call himself an alum.
Please sign this petition to be sent to the president of Cornell, urging him to move towards expulsion of this animal torturer.
Note: Atkind is not a veterinary student...the college simply HAS an excellent prestigious vet program. There seems to be confusion on this. Not that it matters what program he is in..he deserves expulsion regardless of what his major is.
