PROSECUTION OR PERSECUTION? THIS PICTURE OF THE DOG LICKING THE POLICE OFFICER WAS TAKEN WHEN TANT'S DOGS WERE SEIZED. THIS IS ONLY ONE OF THE 47 DOGS AND THREE LITTERS OF PUPPIES THE CHARLESTON ANIMAL SOCIETY KILLED ! PLEASE READ FURTHER
First of all David Ray Tant was only given 15 years. His sentence was changed to 40 years by the Attorney General when he refused to testify against Michael Vick! Secondly he did not try to kill anybody. He put some birdshot which is harmless on the puppy pen for the simple fact that people had been trying to steal his puppies. The so called "surveryor" that trespassed on Mr. Tant's property and pryed open the puppy pen was not a surveyor he was a puppy thief named Steven Baker. He said he was stealing a puppy to give his girlfriend for her birthday. He was caught two weeks later stealing reptiles from the reptile show at the Ladson fairgrounds. Mr. Tant paid him $17,000 for a little birdshot in the butt. Birdshot never killed anyone Mr. Karesh. These are just more of the lies Charles Karesh and the Charleston Animal Society are making up to cover up the fact that they killed all of Mr. Tant"s dogs. Just like the lie about the dogs having broken legs! So if the dogs had broken legs why did you wait 8 months to kill them??? Just more lies to continue to destroy this man's life. GOD DOES NOT LIKE UGLY.
The Charleston Animal Society is afraid the public will find out they killed Mr. Tant's 47 dogs and 3 litters of puppies born in their care! They are now making up lies about why they killed them! Mr. Tant was not Dogfighting he was simple breeding dogs! which he had done since his teenage years.
Please read the following ! We need your support and prayers!
David Ray Tant began raising and leasing guard dogs early in life with a Police Officer friend of his. He trained dogs for the Police Canine unit. Years ago, he participated in dogfighting when it was not a felony. He is remorseful for that today. He discontinued and became a breeder in later years. He always took Excellent care of his dogs. Some may have been used for fighting after he sold them. Do we find Gun Dealers guilty of murder if a gun they sell is used in a murder?
Tant's sentence is extremely harsh. Never before or since have sentences of this magnitude been given to any other convicted dog-fighters. Michael Vick the NFL player was only sentenced to two years, only served 19 months, his dogs were allowed to be adopted out by the public and he is back out playing football.
Tant paid $82,000 to the Animal Society to care for his dogs. They euthanized them (47) as well as three litters of puppies after being in their custody for 8 months. People were trying to rescue them, but never got a chance. The people who killed Tant's dogs are the ones fighting to keep him in prison.
I know this man! David Ray Tant is not the monster he is made out to be. He is a father, grandfather, brother, and son. There are people who love and support him. He is a kind-hearted, generous, and caring man. After six years in prison he has paid his debt. What benefit is there to continue imprisonment? If you can find it in your heart to support his parole, it will be appreciated. Next parole date is September 8, 2010
