Adoption Dog Stomped to Death by Soldier - The Petition Site

We the undersigned want to send a clear message to Colonel Manning, Brigade Commander of Ft. Bliss, El Paso, Texas, that animal abuse cannot be ignored on his post, and that we are hoping he presses criminal charges on the individual who perpetrated this heinous act as follows:

On March 3, 2009, in El Paso, Tx at Fort Bliss, a soldier adopted 2 dogs from Pet Guardian Angel, an adoption center. Tinkerbelle was a golden retriever, and Wrigley, a mixed breed. See Tinkerbelle standing proudly by her new family in this photo.

Within a few weeks of the adoption, the soldier horifically stomped, kicked and beat Tinkerbelle to death...breaking her neck in the end. Stop for one moment and imagine the pain and suffering that Tinkerbelle and Wrigley endured as they were brutally attacked. Tinkerbelle was gruesomely murdered, blow-by-blow, kick-by-kick, and beaten to death. The soldier's wife said he got angry and punished Tinkerbelle by hitting her with the leash and basically stomping her to death. How long and how much pain did Tinkerbelle withstand before she took her last breath? Wrigley got away, but was kicked so badly that he was taken to a veterinary clinic and had extensive surgery done on his broken up hind leg.

This type of behavior should not be tolerated by somebody whose job it is to protect our country. The soldier in question should not get away with such inhumane acts nor should the community tolerate such behavior. A slap on the wrist is not punishment enough for the crime. Silence is acceptance. By remaining silent we take no steps to prevent such horrific acts from happening again. By signing this petition, you are helping put an end to this abuse and urging the comminity to ensure action is taken against the accused. Animal abuse is a crime!

If you want to voice your concerns to Ft. Bliss concerning this incident, contact the Army's Public Relations Officer, Jean Offutt; her email is She can be reached at 915-568-4505.

Thank you so much!
