Hackers Attempt to Sabotage Donation Campaign for Death-Row Dog

The battle for the life of the death row dog Prada is getting intensity as the chip-in links to receive donations for her were hacked four times in 24 hours.

Held caged for more than a year at the Metro Animal Control in Nashville, Tennessee, Prada was sentenced by the local court to be killed after the animal control staff testified that they found her “vicious”. Her owner appealed her execution on the grounds that shewas  the victim of abuse and not a dangerous dog.

Lately, video evidence of the concerned animal control staff roughly handling Prada and another dog surfaced and showed the animal control staff claiming that Prada was infected – a claim that has been highly suspicious and questioned by Prada’s supporters for lack of any evidence.

Prada’s case got great attention and public support with several thousand people signing the petition to spare her and release her from the control facility where she has wrongly been labeled as “vicious”. But it all came down to getting money for saving Prada’s life as the owner’s hard legal fight left her with virtually nothing in her pocket.

To file appeal for Prada’s life and having a fair trial in light of all new evidence available, call for donations was sent and people started paying online via a chip-in set up to help fight for Prada’s life. Over the past 24 hours, however, the chip-in links have been hacked four times in what appears to be deliberate effort to thwart the struggle for getting Prada out, alive and well.

“What would drive someone to hate a dog and her mom so much?” asked one of the persons leading the campaign in Prada’s support.

According to details, the court system requires $7900 to file the appeal for Prada’s life and later 18$/day for 18 months after the appeal is filed, in addition to nearly $2000 for court reported documents. With about $19 thousand dollars needed in total for this long fight to save Prada, the life of the abused dog has literally fallen in the hands of her supporters. So far the donations in Prada’s support add up to nearly $3000 and the fight for Prada continues.

After the hacking attempts at the chip-in links, a new page has been set up to receive donations for Prada. Updates about Prada are posted on her facebook page.
