Justice For Dexter Kitten: Care2 Petition Asks Maximum Prosecution For Attacker

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.

  1. Signed. Not only do they need to prosecute to the full extent of the law, but children’s services need to take the children away from this monster.

  2. It should be a crime and part of child abuse services should make laws for parents with small children a risk this is only the beginning if she is not already abusing the children most children will not willingly hurt an animal unless there is mental problems or they are being abused themselves sick woman does not deserve to create future manson family

  4. So many things are going through my mind, but if I put them here, the popo would come looking for me!!! I just hope that Florida does something to this evil monster…I don’t really want to go to jail for beating the living DOO DOO out of a pregnant girl-but I would!!!!!!

  5. Just signed!!! I hope they give her the maximum. I’m sure that won’t be too harsh unfortunately! She’s lucky I wasn’t there cause I would have taken the bat from her and hit her with it!!! What an evil beast she is!!!! I hope she burns in hell quite frankly!!!

  6. Thank you for posting this & following up. Surely she must be able to be charged with some from of child abuse also.

  7. On the petition, I said I think the children are most likely being beaten and abused by their mother in the same manner that they tortured that little kitten.

  8. Signed the petition……. What kind of sick person does this? You can’t help but wonder what she does or has done to her children. We know what she’s teaching them and in my opinion the children should be removed from this situation which is clearly a dangerous one……… Praying for this situation.

  9. Signed, commented & shared petition! This cretinous woman should be given MORE than just the pathetically inadequate prescribed “maximum” jail sentence or fine. Make an example of her – put her to work, doing hard labour in a state MORTUARY, and keep her in solitary confinement after hours and on weekends, for the duration of her sentence. Do not allow her to have any contact with any living beings, especially not her kids, family or friends.

  10. Signed and delivered! This is disgusting and vile and that woman should be taken out of society now and put away where she will enver see the light of day!

  11. Tears are running down my face as I’m writing this. I’m praying for Dexter’s recovery. I signed the petition. I just can’t say anymore at this point.

  12. I pray that Dexter continues to progress and in the depths of my heart I hope that he will be able to somehow forget about this cruelity towards him and remember most the loving care he is now receiving. As far as I am concerned punishment for this crime will not be enough but I hope with the petition and the words of support this woman is given as much jail time as possible.

  13. Petition signed. Hopefully this evil woman will receive a nice long prison sentence. I doubt that those psychopath “children” of hers will receive any corrections time because they’re “children”… hopefully they’ll be put into a decent foster care family where they will receive as much counseling, treatment, and corrections as possible. We’ll probably hear more from these “children” in the future, though… unfortunately. At any rate, their mother should be spayed in order to keep her from producing any more psychopaths.

    God bless the children and adults who have done their part to help little Dexter… Dexter’s little sibling is watching from the Rainbow Bridge where he will watch over Dexter until he’s ready to join him there… no more pain, no more fear.

  14. These kids are the future Ted Bundy”s of the world. Lets hope there is some help available to try and reverse the damage done to these kids at the hand of this twisted “mother”

  15. I agree 100 % also. Too bad this country is so “free” in this type of situation. It would be great if the law could sterilize the bad people. It’s just going to get worse unfortunately.

  16. I’m certainly hope justice will be served to the fullest extent. She needs to locked up and have the key thrown away and/or give her a taste of her own medicine. That might be harsh but it’s not right to mistreat living things.

  17. This women is a monster. She lives near me, and she did do it. Take her kids and her, send them back to the moon where they should all be.

  18. This woman should be sent to prison and her children taken away from her. She is a very sick person! I really pray that the courts sentence her.

  19. The woman should be sentenced to maximum jail time and should have her children taken away from her. I pray the surviving kitty will be ok. I cry for the one who won’t.

  20. And a hero’s celebrations should be given in the town to the boy who intervened to help these kittens. Give him money, praise, a parade, some new cool toys, make him look COOL….Make an example out of him to show other children that THIS is how to behave. Doing the RIGHT thing is cool.

  21. A life for a life! Them poor defenceless kittens did not deserve this, she should be treated as though she had taken a human life and receive the same punishment.

  22. I just signed the petition as well. I hope that this horrible excuse for a human being gets the maximum sentence that can be afforded in this case. Poor little Dexter. I don’t see how anyone would want to abuse adorable kittens such as this.

  23. I have signed the petition. I was truly heart broken when I heard this,I can not understand why someone would do this she needs to pay and we need to have more severe punishments for such cruelty. If she can do this to a animal what was she doing to her children.

  24. It has been proven that an adult or a child who sadistically abuse an animal will eventually do the same to a human being. Wilana Frazier has earned the maximum penalty allowed by law AND she should be forbidden to own animals for the rest of her lifetime. God help those children. The authorities should keep a very close watch on this woman and her unfortunate offspring. I feel so sad for you, Dexter but I have faith that you are in a place where there are only loving humans.

  25. Thank you for relaying this information through Facebook. I have signed the petition and shared it on my Facebook wall and encouraged others to read the post and sign the petition.

  26. I would love to beat the living daylights out of her. She should be put to death in my opinion. I love cats by the way.

  27. Although the frequency of posts about abuse here is tremendously saddening & disgusting, I must wholeheartedly commend everyone involved in this endeavor for publicizing these atrocious horrors perpetrated upon the innocent by the savage mess that some humans have let themselves or their children become. If only I could throw a ton of money your way to support your work!

    Take heart, dear readers, that most parents with children who own pets are quite mindful of this sort of behavior & make every effort to curtail it at the onset, in every instance of which we are aware. Our smaller family members are quite fragile & not invulnerable to even the slightest too-tight “caress”.

    Be sure your children are not taking out any frustration for whatever reason on their pets. As my 7-year-old son bonds more every day to his pets, he is still prone to exert more force than is appropriate in some of his “embraces”.

    When your children are with their pets, be highly aware of the situations that may evolve, particularly when they do not believe you are tuning in to their actions & words.

  28. Could not agree with you more!!! I pray to God that He changes her heart full of evil and hatred and she becomes a staunch animal and human rights activist.
