Target: Rusty E. McGuire, Commonwealth’s Attorney for Louisa County, Virginia
Goal: Punish the person who threw kittens out of a moving vehicle, killing both.
Two young kittens were thrown from a moving vehicle in a horrific case of animal cruelty. They each died from their injuries. Demand justice for these innocent animals.
“There was no need to toss them out of the window when you’re that close to the animal shelter. You could have easily just stopped and surrendered them there,” stated Louisa County Animal Control Officer Alyssa Ellison. A witness spotted the driver of a truck painted with gray primer driving on Route 33 near the Louisa Reservoir and throwing the approximately 6-week-old kittens from the window. One died on impact with the road, the other sustained several cuts to the head and died on the way to the animal hospital.
The Louisa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating this case as animal cruelty. They have not yet identified any suspects. Sign below and demand that the person responsible for this horrific act is prosecuted and punished to the fullest extent of the law.
Dear Commonwealth’s Attorney McGuire,
Two kittens perished in a cruel and heartless act of animal cruelty. Thrown from a moving vehicle, one died on impact with the road. The second kitten, thought to be about six weeks old, suffered severe cuts to the head and trauma from the impact that eventually took his or her life. This cruelty happened only four miles from the county’s animal shelter, where the seemingly unwanted kittens could have been taken in and cared for without question. This indicates an act of deliberate cruelty and malice against innocent animals.
The person behind this act of cruelty is still out there and likely a danger to local animals. I demand that you prosecute and punish this person to the fullest extent of the law.
