Subject: IA ~American Bulldog beaten to death in Sioux City, Iowa. WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!
This is tragic story. attached is a picture of "Sire" an American Bulldog, who was beaten to death by his owner last week here in Sioux City. He was approx 5 mos old at the time of his death.
He had urinated on the carpet and then received over 30 blows to the head and subesequently died. I am on a mission. I fear he will go unpunished and need your support and help to spread the word, so that our local law enforcement and judicial system do the right thing. Bobby Loggins is the the owner of the dogs and was charged with "torture of an animal" which is a simple misdemenor. Needless to say if he pleads guilty, he will be fined and that is all.
What we need to happen is as follows: The Sioux City PD needs to ammend his charges to "Intentional Cruelty To an Animal" which would be a serious misdemenor. This CAN happen if the charges are ammended prior to his plea/court date. I believe this is this weds. I need everyone to start asking questions here. The ball was dropped initially by the charging officers, but this can be fixed if we put the pressure on.
I ask that you all give a call to the Sioux City Police Chief : Doug Young 712-279-6440 and the City Legal Dept at 712-279-6318 WE NEED TO ASK WHY THE CURRENT CHARGES STAND AND WHY WE ARE NOT AMMENDING THEM? THIS SHOULD BE HANDLED BY THE COUNTY PROSECUTOR, AS THE APPROPRIATE CHARGE WOULD BE A VIOLATION OF A STATE STATUTE. THEY ARE TRYING TO SWEEP THIS UNDER THE RUG.
THIS BEAST WILL GO UNPUNISHED ESSENTIALLY IF THE CHARGES ARE NOT CHANGED. OFFICIALS NEED TO KNOW, THAT THESE ANIMALS DO HAVE A VOICE AND IT IS US!!!!!!
Thanks for your time, please spread the word.
