Hopping Mad: Petland Employee Charged After Posting Mocking Pictures of Drowned Rabbits

10848039_BG1We have another accused Facebook felon. Elizabeth Carlisle, 20, is a Petland employee in Akron, Ohio who decided to drown two injured rabbits at the store and then show the pictures on her Facebook page while smiling. She has been charged with animal cruelty.

What is interesting is that the caption on the photo credits the store manager as the photographer but no charges have been brought against the manager. According to PETA, the caption read: “[T]he manager took the pic for me. [S]he reminded me that there were people outside as [I] was swearing at them to just hurry up and die but then she was so kind as to take this picture.”

New reports include sources who allege that drowning animals was a common practice when they are injured at the store.

Petland has pulled the franchise of the store, which has been closed by public authorities.

  1. Thanks for your fascinating article. One other problem is that mesothelioma is generally brought on by the inhalation of material from mesothelioma, which is a dangerous material. It really is commonly viewed among individuals in the building industry who may have long exposure to asbestos. It is caused by residing in asbestos covered buildings for a long period of time, Inherited genes plays a huge role, and some folks are more vulnerable towards the risk compared to others.

    Also I believe that mesothelioma cancer is a extraordinary form of most cancers that is often found in individuals previously subjected to asbestos. Cancerous tissues form in the mesothelium, which is a defensive lining that covers a lot of the body’s body organs. These cells ordinarily form within the lining with the lungs, abdomen, or the sac which actually encircles one’s heart. Thanks for giving your ideas.

  3. I am looking for an original iPhone.

    My 3g is broken (it goes in the toilett, if you know what i mean:)). Now i require a new one. But here in Germany the phone is so expensive 🙁 i have to give more then 800€ = 1.100$. This is to much for me.

    When i look on ebay i see the i-phones for 600 euro and less. But this are trade in models from UK. I don´t know. Works this iphones in germany (maybe with the jailbreak?)

    Here in germany we say “iphonekonig” it means, king of i-phones. And i have the same opinion. The iphone is the finest cellphone what i have ever see.


  4. Guten Tag!
    Ich bin ganz neu hier. Leider kann ich nur die deutsche Sprache. Ich hoffe das mich hier jemand verstehen kann. Ich bin auf der Suche nach einem Hundebesitzer die genau wie ich so begeistert von den Retrievern (vor allem die Goldenen :-)).

    Ich habe eine Menge Informationen über diese tollen Tiere gefunden. Zum Beispiel hier kann man alles ueber die Golden Retriever erfahren. Von Geschichte bis zur Rassenbeschreibung.

    Guck einfach auf dieser Retriever Hunderasse URL. Hier kannst Du vieles finden.

    Ich wuerde mich freuen, wenn es jemand hilft sich fuer einen Retriever zu entscheiden.

    Viele gruesse


  5. Matt,

    Shooting is fine on the farm. Drowning isn’t fine anywhere. It’s not the killing the sick/injured animals at issue, it’s the method.

  6. The rabbits were sick anyway. I grew up on a farm & when animals were too sick to recover, I shot them!!! So what!! YOU PEOPLE ARE NUTS!!

  7. These people should be evaluated and treated by psychiatrists and not allowed to work with animals, children, the disabled or the elderly.

  8. why not try to fix them or just take them to the vet to be euthanised humanely?

    Very disturbing.

  9. I agree with Jan, they both should go to jail and this behavior should be a felony. Petlands should be shut down all together. A trip to any local Humane Society will show why. People pay obscene amounts of money on the pets from puppy mills where they can get them cheap and make more profit. It needs to end.

  10. Both Elizabeth Carlisle and the Manager needs to be incarcerated and charged for animal cruelty and killing, the Manager is an accessory to this and I want her name to be exposed just as the owner Steve Winslow who is the owner of this Sociopathic employee ridden store. The Manager and Elizabeth need to be in prison for the maximum allowed by law and never be allowed to work with animals or even own one for the rest of their lives. I hope they dream of the suffering they created for these poor innocent animals. No animal, no child should ever have to be treated in this manner ever and there needs to be stricter laws as Elizabeth and her Manager are the future Child Abusers that will be free too soon!

  11. Killing a rabbit to eat it is far, far different than this, AY.

  12. I don’t think that any animal should suffer as a result of human hands. I have never eaten rabbit (figure the Hare) tastes bad.

    Many people do eat the Hare, I don’t. That the tail of the dog that bit you. That is a totally different story.
