Teeth Pulled, Emaciated and Forced to Fight – Punish Accused Dog Fighters!

Published: February 14, 2020 at 06:49 AM Author: Penny Eims

Spencer, Oklahoma – A couple in Spencer, Oklahoma is facing charges for suspected dog-fighting activities. Officials seized 24 injured and neglected dogs who were branded, emaciated, missing teeth and generally “traumatized,” from being forced into violent fighting contests.

Casper Ingram and his wife Celeste Ingram are the couple accused of owning the dogs and running the illegal operation – they are facing 21 counts of animal cruelty and facilitating dog fighting.

Please sign this petition to help ensure that this couple gets the maximum sentence for the charges they are facing. Dog-fighting is a brutal, disgusting blood “sport,” which must be stopped.

According to a police affidavit, a veterinarian found “tag marks, scars, open wounds, including some that were infected, fresh scabs, pressure sores” on the dogs seized from the property. The dogs were “chained to heavy stakes and logging chains,” according to a court affidavit.

Had these dogs not been discovered, they would have continued to live a miserable existence on the end of a heavy logging chain. They would have been forced into pits to be ripped apart and their lives would be filled with pain and suffering.

Casper and Celeste Ingram must pay for their crimes! Casper has prior felony convictions for drug-related offenses – enough is enough! Help us send a message that these people must be put away!
