DEMAND JUSTICE FOR BUDDY! Please, please help!


I KNOW this is a horrible photo. I KNOW it is a horrible story. But all of us need to stand behind this dog and the Facebook movement to bring the highest penalty to the man who perpetrated this dispicable act. This poor dog, who cannot speak for himself, died a miserable death. I cannot even imagine what he must have suffered. PLEASE, go to the Facebook page and lend your support. STAND UP FOR BUDDY. PLEASE! sign the petition. The link is below. It will only take a moment of your time. I can't stop crying - I just can't stop...~Mimi 

Sign the petition here

Jill Rosen A huge movement is building online to make sure that a man accused of dragging a dog to its death in Colorado is convicted and serves maximum jail time.


According to news reports, a German Shepherd named Buddy was tied to the back of a pickup and forced to run behind the vehicle as it climbed steep and snowy slopes -- for three miles. Buddy was found dead in the park last week, dumped there.

A Facebook group called Demand Justice for Buddy has attracted nearly 25,000 supporters, as of this morning. They want Romero to get the maximum sentence, which is three years in prison, a $100,000 fine and a year of mandatory parole.

According to officials at the park, tracks in the snow show Buddy initially walked behind the truck and then ran, and was then dragged when he collapsed. Park officials found him with a silver and blue rope around his neck.

Too, too horrible for words. People like this have lost touch with their humanity.

The maximum sentence is not enough for Romero,
He himself should be drug behind a train- tortored forever.
He is HEARTLESS.
We will sign too
We cannot stop crying too.

I had to skip right over this post, which is yet more evidence of why dogs are better companions than people deserve.

I signed the petition and can't quit crying after seeing the picture and reading what happened. I hope this evil being is brought to Justice and has to pay...

That is absolutely disgusting. Why? Why? There is no conceivable reason for a person to do this. I hope this pile of #$#% sits in prison for a long, long time.

How horrible

Friend of Tony said...

As long as it is ascertained that this was not a horrible accident then this jerk should receive the max penalty. Animal abusers don't stop with animals - it's only the beginning.

Sierra Rose said...

We have signed, and with a big lump in our throats. We agree with Tweedles, the punishment is too light for the crime. It's an unthinkable act!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose
