Dear Prosecutor Brown,

A dog was allegedly beaten to death with a newspaper in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The suspect claimed that he was just trying to clean the pup’s eyes. Demand justice for this helpless animal.

Rexburg police arrested Miguel Rivera on charges of misdemeanor animal cruelty after he allegedly beat his dog to death. Per police, Rivera grabbed the Shih Tzu by the neck and possibly choked the poor animal. He then beat his pet with a rolled-up newspaper, police stated, until the animal fell unconscious. Rivera was reportedly drunk and disorderly at the time of the beating. A second live dog was also removed from the premises. Rivera will face his charge at a later date.

The person responsible for this dog’s death must be punished. I demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
