Dexter kitten was rescued from a brutal assault by goodhearted children. The other kitten beaten by a 24 year old pregnant woman and her 5 and 8 year old boys did not survive. The woman is charged with felony animal abuse and a petition asks for serious prosecution in the case.
Update of 8/15/2011:
After much hopeful progress, growth and development, and after Dexter found his forever home with a woman who had been by his side from he day he came to PetLuv clinic, the sweet boy was regretfully helped to leave this life. Despite his great progress and his transformation into a happy kitten with a home, Dexter’s seizures continued to the point that his loving caregivers decided that the best thing for him was to release him.
The petition asking for tough prosecution of and punishment for Wilana Frazier, should she be found guilty, is still open.
Those who read Dexter Kitten Receives Tender Loving Care at PetLuv Clinic After brutal Assault along with the several other stories we posted along the course of Dexter’s journey, or who have elsewhere seen the story of Wilana Frazier directing her two young boys to brutalize two defenseless kittens out in the open at a public park, killing one and severely injuring the other, may wish to visit Care2’s Petitionsite, where a petition has been drafted asking for justice for the two kittens. While we do not know who has drafted this petition, we do know that these petitions sometimes are effective in letting courts know that people are paying attention to a case, and they do sometimes help influence or support rigorous prosecution, as well as the court’s sentencing decision.
According to the Care2 petitionsite:
A petition has been drafted by People Against Cruelty asking the Hernando County State Attorney to “take maximum prosecution under the Florida Statute Code in the Case involving felony animal abuse charges of the accused, Wilana Joenel Frazier, and her two children.”
Anyone interested can view the petition pagehere.
According to Florida state statute this offense can be charged as a serious felony and the woman, if found guilty, can receive significant prison time.
As far as we know Dexter is still making a good recovery, though staff at the clinic caring for him remain watchful and concerned, due to possible brain injury and seizures.
We made several posts on Dexter following this one.
