MSU Student Charged With Killing 13 Dogs

In a tragic chain of events, Michigan State University medical student, Andrew David Thompson has reportedly admitted to killing 13 tiny Italian greyhounds by grabbing them by the neck, beating them, and throwing them against the ground or a wall.

After an anonymous call to animal control, investigators searched Thompson’s apartment and reportedly found a severely injured puppy in the closet whom they rushed to a veterinary hospital. The dog survived, despite suffering from internal bleeding.

Thompson allegedly told an animal control officer that he would get angry and kill the dogs when they had accidents in the house or wouldn’t come to him. He is charged with 13 counts of killing animals and faces an additional charge for the beaten dog who survived.

Law-enforcement officials have repeatedly documented that people who commit violent crimes against animals often “graduate” to killing humans. If you ever suspect someone of animal abuse, it is incredibly important for the safety of the entire community that you report it to the police.

PETA is pushing for the maximum prison sentence for Thompson if he is convicted, and you can help by contacting Prosecutor Stuart Dunnings III and politely asking for justice for the dogs Thompson allegedly murdered.

    I will never cease being appalled at the total lack of respect “people” have for their “pets”. I use quotes on both words as I don’t qualify that type of person as being anything close to a person or a human and those who treat animals in any way other then complete care and compassion can’t be classified as pets.My cat is my family and all animals are living beings and deserve more care and respect as they depend on us for survival and companionship. I will never stop fighting for the rights of all animals. I continue my efforts in emails,protests and word of mouth to push for felony charges against animal abusers and murderers. Killing is killing.. person or animal it is black and white,clear cut murder no matter if they have two legs or four. These lovely creatures may be able to meow,back,moo cluck etc but they can’t say”don’t beat me,please don’t hurt me.” We have to say it for them. Please contact your state government and keep urging stricter laws on these abusers. Not just in Michigan but all across the country. One person does make a change!!!!

    He should be locked up and they should throw away the key! Literally because he has no feelings no concious to do what he did! Also, if he is let out, he will do the same thing again! More innocent, helpless, defenseless animals will suffer! He shouldnt be let out!

    Oh. my. god. Frankly, this man disgusts me. I have an Italian Greyhound, and they are the most sweet little things in the world. Sure, a little hard to train, but what he did is unacceptable and I will surely be contacting Mr. Dunnings III. Sickening, just sickening.
