Send Letter to Urge Strict Punishment for Greyhound Abuser

Posted By on Fri, Feb 16, 2007 at 1:03 PM

Several months ago a greyhound by the name of Boston was rushed to Pima Animal Care Center. Boston had been denied food, water, shelter, ventilation and human contact for more than a month. His abusers pled guilty, and one of them has been sentenced.

The primary abuser, Mr. Mendibles, will be sentenced Feb 26. He did not adopt Boston but instead was associated with a kennel at the Tucson Greyhound Park and was just given the greyhound.

Greyhound groups all over the country have been following this case and sent in letters for each hearing. During the previous sentencing of Mr. McCallister, the secondary abuser, the judge publicly thanked all the greyhound groups and animal lovers all over the country for writing letters. He said that they are the Mothers of Drunk Drivers in the greyhound world. (Power to the animal-loving people!)

Please join in the letter writing campaign and send a letter thanking the Pima County Prosecutors for prosecuting animal abuse cases and to recommend the maximum punishment by law to Mr. Mendibles for greyhound abuse.

Send to:

Diana Hofsdale, Legal Assistant, Crime Division

Pima County Attorneys Office

1400 Legal Services Bldg

32 N. Stone Ave

Tucson, AZ 85701

Boston has since gained 35 pounds will be ready for adoption through Racing Home Greyhounds in Phoenix when the case is finally closed.
