Trial date set for woman accused of abusing Patrick the pit bull
11 months ago

The 3-year-old case of a woman charged with dropping her pit bull puppy down a trash chute will go to trial July 9.

Kisha Curtis, 29, of Newark, appeared with her attorney, Mark Rojas, in Superior Court today and rejected the state's plea offer of 18 months in prison, forfeiture of the dog and fees in exchange for pleading guilty to one count of fourth-degree animal cruelty.

If convicted, Curtis faces up to 18 months in prison, though most fourth-degree charges carry a presumption of non-incarceration.

The dog, later named "Patrick," was rescued the day before St. Patrick's Day 2011, emaciated and near death. Volunteers from the Associated Humane Societies took him to the emergency room at Garden State Veterinary Specialists and he has since fully recovered.

Curtis has denied abusing the animal, saying she left him in the hallway.

The attorneys will meet June 28 to hear pre-trial motions.

An ongoing civil suit between the city of Newark and Associated Humane Societies, which claims custody of Patrick is on hold until after the criminal trial resumes.

ASPCA | How to Recognize Cruelty
Animals  (tags: recognizing animal cruelty, reporting it, tips, ASPCA, society, safety, abuse, news, humans, animalcruelty, AnimalWelfare, animaladvocates, animals, crime, cruelty, dogs, cats, pets, protection )
Dianne Ly - 26 minutes ago - aspca.org

Recognizing cruelty is simple, right? Not quite, say ASPCA experts. Aggressive, timid or fearful behavior doesn't always tell the whole story. Animals may appear to be timid or frightened for many reasons other than abuse.

I suggest a campaign about ...

INSIST THE SOUTH KOREAN GOVERNMENT ENFORCE ANIMAL WELFARE LAWS AND BAN THE ILLEGAL INDUSTRY OF DOG AND CAT MEAT

This petition and its demands are not new and if Government has been viewing the hundreds of petitions on You Tube and Social Media they will know the British Public can no longer sit by whilst companion animals are raised in the most unsanitary conditions and then sold as meat. This is not about cultural difference; this is about basic respect – as set down and signed by Stephen Hawking at the 2012 Cambridge Declaration of Consciousness- of the right of all living creatures to a minimum standard of welfare.
The Korean Government by its own admission despite September protests by Dog Farmers in Seoul has not granted legalization of this industry. Yet they allow “ farms” to raise dogs who are kept in cages and fed on food not fit for human consumption and other dead dogs to continue. They allow transportation methods that flout all international standards. They allow markets such as MORAN MEAT market to flourish where Pedigree Dogs and Former Pets are electrocuted and boiled in full view of market visitors.
The government turned a blind eye to South Korea burying alive 8 million livestock in 2011 during the foot and mouth crisis. How can the British public attend the 2018 winter games with a clear conscience? Its time to address this issue and act!

Please sign the petition today!
Tell Your Friends: Don't Support Puppy Mills!

take action

please share

it helps!

share on facebook   share on twitter   share via email Dear Dianne Lynn,

Nearly 30,000 Care2 members have pledged not to support puppy mills. Thank you so much for being one of them!

Puppy mills are brutal dog breeeding facilities that treat animals as though they are machines. Will you join the growing movement boycotting these terribly cruel facilities by asking your friends to sign the petition too?

Puppy mills breed dogs in endless cycles until they can no longer use their broken bodies. The facility owners then simply discard the animals like trash! We cannot just stand by and let people treat puppies and adult dogs in this way!

That's why it's crucial that you send an email to your friends and family, share the petition on Facebook, and send a tweet to ask your network to support the cause.
