Punish David Jackson For Cruel Neglect Of 38 Pit Bulls

Published: April 26, 2020 at 05:29 AM Author: Penny Eims

Frankfort, Kentucky – David Jackson, 45, is accused of neglecting and abusing 38 pit bulls who were found on his property in Frankfort, Kentucky. According to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, Jackson was keeping the dogs in cruel conditions. In a press release, the authorities stated:

The dogs were tied to stakes in the ground, trees, and other immovable objects with very large metal chains, one of which weighed approximately 42 pounds. The animals had been there for quite some time. Many of them did not have any clean water or food in their bowls and very little shelter from the elements.

Many of the dogs had maladies, ranging from mange to heartworms and dental problems.

Jackson is facing multiple misdemeanor animal cruelty charges, and more charges are possible. Please sign this petition, which will be presented to the prosecutor along with a request for the maximum punishment – this is not okay!

The full extent of suffering these dogs endured is unknown – what is known is that their bodies showed signs of ongoing neglect. Imagine the anguish of living life with a heavy chain secured to the neck. Imagine the pain of living with mange, heartworms and damaged/infected teeth. Imagine the misery of being left outside without protection from the elements…without access to clean water or food.

David Jackson should be punished for abusing and neglecting these dogs and he must be forbidden from ever owning an animal again! Please leave your thoughts and sign the petition – we will be sending everything to the prosecutor! These dogs deserve justice for the suffering they endured.
