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!
