Online Movement Seeks Justice In Tortured Dog Case [AUDIO]
ST. CLOUD -- An online movement is seeking complete justice against the Princeton man who was arrested for allegedly torturing and killing his girlfriend's dog.
In a story we reported on last week, 24-year-old Anthony Sather was charged with felony animal torture after videos were found of him beating and torturing his girlfriend's husky, Draco, before taking the dog outside and shooting it.
The movement called Justice for Draco is gaining support with their Facebook page and gathering signatures on an online petition to make sure Sather receives the maximum penalty.
Nancy, one of three people who formed the movement, says the objective is to show the court that this level of cruelty should not be taken lightly.
At the time of this interview, Nancy says the online petition has collected nearly 20,000 signatures from people all over the world and the Facebook page has 9,000 "likes" and counting.
Nancy says she does not have any personal connection to the people involved in the case, but she has been fighting against animal cruelty for a long time.
Nancy says the group's goal is to raise awareness of animal cruelty as well as make sure Sather gets convicted to the fullest extent of the law.
