This is HOW it starts...  I can’t in my wildest imagination grasp at why someone would want to do these acts of abuse.  What is it?  Curiosity?  Fun?  Boredom?  To watch an animal suffer unimaginable pain and a horrifying death? I wish I knew. Saddest part is, what role do their parents play in these behaviors? Note: These cases are juvenile offenders so the convictions may never be public unless they turn 18 by the time they are sentenced. We can only hope parental and counseling will be the key here.



Justice for Puppy Kidnapped, Beaten, and Drowned


Target: Bill Adair, District Attorney, Walker County, Alabama Goal: Punish juveniles accused of stealing a puppy, beating it, and attempting to drown it in a creek.

Three juveniles are facing charges after allegedly beating and attempting to drown a 3-month-old pit bull puppy. The dog was allegedly stolen from a neighbor’s yard by the three children, aged 12, 13, and 17, who are accused of breaking down a fence to gain access to the yard. The dog was saved, but died of its injuries a couple days afterward.

The children allegedly tried to bring the puppy in to a local swimming pool, but lifeguards told them to take the animal home as it wasn’t allowed in. According to Acting Police Chief Jason Hare, the children then took the dog to a nearby creek, where they beat is severely and attempted to drown it. The dog was saved by lifeguards who responded to its tortured screams, chasing the children away. The dog was found wrapped in a shirt.

The accused children, who have not been named due to their ages, were taken to a juvenile detention facility. One was charged with theft of property and the other two were charged with cruelty to animals.

This act shows shocking cruelty and a blatant disregard for life. Juveniles involved in animal abuse this severe are likely to escalate their violence later on in life. We must therefore ask that they are punished properly as well as subjected to appropriate mental health screenings in order to prevent recidivism in the future.

Florida teen who shot the dog "Cabela" pleaded guilty to aggravated animal cruelty

 Natwan Callaway, 17, was one of four young men arrested last March after police rescued a bit pull mix named Cabela that had been shot and tied to railroad tracks in the Sulphur Springs neighborhood. Callaway plead guilty and took a plea deal that involved jail time. POOL PHOTO

TAMPA — A teen who shot the dog Cabela pleaded guilty Wednesday to aggravated animal cruelty and was sentenced to four years of probation. Natwan Callaway, 17, has to serve seven months in the Hillsborough County Jail as part of his probation, but he received credit for already serving 197 days — almost all of that time.

Authorities said two men came into possession of the female pit bull mix, later named Cabela by police. The men owned fighting dogs and apparently tried to get Cabela to fight, but she was “too sweet-tempered” and not good at it, police said. So in March she was handed over to Callaway and another 17-year-old, who are accused of shooting the dog, tying her to a post near railroad tracks and leaving her to die until she was rescued by police, The dog’s two owners previously pleaded guilty to charges for using the dog for fighting and then giving her up to be shot.

Darnell Devlin, 18, pleaded guilty to similar charges and received a year of community control followed by three years probation. He also was ordered to perform 50 hours of community service and receive a psychiatric evaluation and treatment. He is to possess no animals or weapons and undergo alcohol and drug evaluation and treatment. Kenny Bell, 21, pleaded guilty in May to a felony charge of baiting, breeding owning or possessing an animal for fighting and a misdemeanor charge of abandonment of an animal, according to Mark Cox, spokesman for the Hillsborough State Attorney’s Office. Bell was sentenced to four years of probation, during which he cannot possess any animals. He was also ordered to serve 150 hours of community service work and to pay $1,000 toward Cabela’s vet bills.

In addition to aggravated animal cruelty, Callaway also pleaded guilty Wednesday to armed trespass and being a minor in possession of a firearm. The other teen charged in the case, Bobby Hollinger, is being prosecuted as a juvenile. Callaway pleaded guilty and was sentenced as an adult, Cox noted. But under the plea agreement, Campbell withheld a finding of guilt.

In explaining why prosecutors agreed to the plea deal for Callaway, Cox said, “When we evaluated this case as we did the other cases, we felt like this was a just resolution to the case. The young man has spent time in county jail and he is going to hopefully receive meaningful evaluations if he goes forward in the four years of probation … It was important to us that he is sentenced as an adult, not as a juvenile.”

As part of Callaway’s sentence, he is to undergo a comprehensive psychological evaluation and receive any psychological or anger treatment recommended. He is also to seek at least part-time employment, providing proof of at least 15 job applications a month. Callaway, who has a seventh-grade education, was also ordered by Circuit Judge Lisa Campbell to work toward his high school diploma or GED. He is to perform 50 hours of community service work and wear an electronic monitor for at least a year. His curfew will be 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. He is subject to searches from law enforcement and may not possess any weapon or have any contact with his co-defendants or any animals. “I don’t care if it’s a fish,” Campbell told him. “No animals at all.”

India: Acid thrown in face of pregnant dog as cruelty in Hyderabad continues

In the Indian city of Hyderabad, four stray dogs were tortured in the third incident of egregious animal cruelty in less than two weeks, reports the Indian Express.  One week ago, a group of teenagers shared a horrifying three minute video from their cellphone to social media of them throwing terrified puppies into a lit fire and then using sticks to prevent the helpless little ones from escaping. Eight teenagers, as young as 14 have been arrested and charged with the heinous crime. A second incident involved a medical student throwing a dog off a several story balcony for “fun.” Hyderabad dog hit with acid

And now, on Wednesday, three dogs in Hyderabad were poisoned and a pregnant dog was attacked with acid; only one dog lived.  Local resident Annamma Joseph had been feeding the dogs regularly when she noticed they approached her crying in pain the evening she returned home. An unknown culprit had thrown acid in the face of the pregnant pup; she did not survive. The other dogs are suspected to have been poisoned and the one survivor is currently in the care of Blue Cross Animal Rescue. A police investigation has been launched; a necropsy of the dogs will determine the exact cause of their deaths.

The Humane Society International has offered a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) involved in the cruel and heartless attack. In a statement NG Jayasimha, managing director of the HSI, encourages citizens to come forward and help:

“It would only take an ill mind to torture harmless dogs. At least one case of animal cruelty is being reported every week and the way the crime is committed leaves us aghast. This only proves that an immediate increase in penalties against animal cruelty is absolutely necessary. We encourage anyone who has information in this case to come forward. The identity of the informant will be kept confidential. Anyone with leads to the culprits are requested to contact HSI/India at 076749 22044.”





 

 South Africa: Teen filmed killing brakkie is gunned down by gangsters.


The 17-year-old boy, who was charged with animal cruelty after he and six other boys were filmed stoning a stray dog to death, has been murdered. Junaid Davids was standing in Rhone Walk, Manenberg, with his 30-year-old friend only known as “Mallie” when gangsters, from a distance, opened fire just after 10.55am yesterday. Police say the shooters was a distance away, and stood on an object which gave them an elevated view of the victims. They say they “were trapped” by the hail of bullets and couldn’t flee. Junaid was shot in the chest and Mallie, who survived, was struck thrice in the back.

The shooting comes just a week after Junaid and six boys were charged with cruelty to animals after a video of the stoning went viral on Facebook. The children were seen dragging the dog by a rope around his neck to a secluded area along Vygieskraal Road in Manenberg. One of the children repeatedly announces, “you are going to die, to die”. It shows them pelting the dog with bricks, provoking a pit bull to attack it, and also hanging it from a tree.

The Cape of Good Hope SPCA investigated after being alerted by a resident in Manenberg. Junaid’s mother, Farooz Williams, 37, told the Daily Voice last week that her son had been assaulted after the video emerged. But she doesn’t believe his murder had anything to do with the video. “I don’t even know how to feel. He was my baby son,” the heartbroken woman says. “This wasn’t linked I think to that , this was [gang]crossfire shooting.” Police say no arrests have been made yet. Junaid is the second murder victim in Manenberg in just three days. One other man was killed and three others injured in the gang. Police sources say rival gangs the Clever kids, the Hard Livings and the Dixie boys are locked in a deadly battle.

Original story: Children in Cape Town video stoning and torturing dog to death

Capetown cruelty The Cape of Good Hope Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals were made aware of a disturbing act of animal cruelty on Friday, allegedly involving eight children between the ages of 7 to 17, reports Eyewitness News. A graphic video was sent to the organization and uploaded on Facebook. 

According to Tara McGovern, a spokesperson for the animal rescue organization, the incident occurred earlier this month in a field in Manenberg. The video shows a group of kids dragging a stray little dog by a rope tied around the small dog’s neck to a secluded area. As they drag and kick the frightened little pup, they shout “this dog is going to die today.” With them the boys lead a pit bull ordering that dog to attack the tiny puppy. The pitbull attacks the dog, and as the defenseless pooch tries to get away, the boys grab it, but they weren’t done torturing the animal. It only grew worse when they then decided to hang the pup from a tree and throw rocks and bricks at the terrified little one. Capetown dog stoned to death

“This is why you must look after your dogs, people,” can be heard shouted by one of the kids.

At the end of the video, the puppy lies on the ground dead.

McGovern says her organization has the names and addresses of the children involved. On the Facebook page of the SPCA, a copy of the dog, named Sam, necropsy report reveals the puppy died a slow, horrific death as a result of blunt force trauma, liver failure, a crushed skull and multiple dog bites. Capetown dog stoned to death 2

“A case has been opened at the Manenberg Police Station and social workers from the Department of Social Development will render assistance in the hope that these children can be rehabilitated,” added McGovern.

The video can be found on the SPCA page; this writer could not watch it and therefore will not post it here. Rest in peace Sam. We hope you find some justice.

Teenager Accused of Injuring Dog With Illegal Castration Must be Punished

    

Target: Rick Healy, District Attorney, Wayne County, New York Goal: Punish person who performed an illegal home castration on a dog.

A teen has been arrested after allegedly attempting to castrate his dog. The 19-year-old is accused of performing the procedure himself, without adequate surgical conditions, resulting in serious injury to the dog. Michael Williams of Marion, New York, has been charged with animal cruelty and will appear in court at a later date.

According to staff at Macedon Veterinary Care, the teen took the dog in for care and admitted that he had attempted an illegal home castration, but was concerned that it had gone wrong. When he was told that he would need to transport it to a nearby veterinary hospital for surgery, Williams reportedly refused. After the staff alerted police, the young man was apprehended on his way home and the dog was taken from him.

Police officers immediately transported the dog, named Toby, to the appropriate veterinary hospital at the order of District Attorney Rick Healy, who promised that the county would take responsibility for the costs. There, Toby was given medication for the pain, antibiotics to fight off possible infection, and intravenous fluids. He will require long-term wound care and may even need surgery.

The person responsible for this cruel act demonstrated an alarming sense of recklessness and a blatant disregard for the proper care of this animal. Because of this, it’s possible that Toby will feel pain for the rest of his life. Sign the petition below to thank the district attorney for saving the dog and ask him to punish the perpetrator to the fullest extent of the law.

Punish Teens Arrested for Sicking Dogs on Neighbor’s Pet


A young man has been arrested for animal abuse after reportedly commanding his dog to attack a neighbor’s cat. According to the police, the 17-year-old and his friend were walking their dogs when they saw the neighbor’s cat walking along the street. For no reason other than to be cruel, the teens allegedly released their dogs from their leashes and allowed them to hunt, corner, and brutalize the cat. A video of the incident shows the two teens looking on as the cat is mauled, making no effort to retrieve their dogs until a witness appears. The cat later died from its injuries.

One teen was arrested and charged with two counts of felony animal cruelty, reckless endangerment, criminal mischief, and disorderly conduct. He is currently being held in a juvenile detention facility. Police are still looking for the other young man and the two pit bulls involved in the incident. It is possible that the dogs have been trained to fight and/or attack on command.

This cat suffered unimaginable fear and pain before its death. In order to protect both animals and humans, it is imperative that both the other teenager and the two dogs are found. Sign the petition below to demand that the police seek the maximum possible punishment under the law and that the dogs are taken away and re-homed to responsible owners.

Demand Harsher Punishment for Teens Who Brutally Killed Opossum


Two 17-year-olds reportedly ran over an opossum, snapping its spine and causing its eyes to bulge. The poor animal’s insides were hanging outside of its body as it tried to run away. Though the two teens just plead guilty, the court decided to allow these cruel monsters to get away with a slap on the wrist. Their only punishments were small fines and probation.

These boys cruelly harmed an innocent animal and posted the video online for entertainment, which is purely evil. Their behavior makes them a possible danger to society as it’s common knowledge that humans who enjoy inflicting such horrific, gruesome suffering upon a helpless animal have a tendency towards violence.

Please sign this petition to tell the authorities that we’re disappointed in them for not caring about animals and demand that these men receive a much harsher sentence.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Coates,

An opossum was gruesomely abused by two teenagers who reportedly ran the animal over, causing its spine to snap and its eyes to bulge from its skull. The poor animal still attempted to run away as its insides hung from its body. This is a stomach-turning act of cruelty, yet they were let off with nothing more than probation and fines.

We are appalled that you seem to care so little about the lives of animals. The torture this helpless creature endured for their entertainment is unacceptable. We demand that you reverse the decision to allow these dangerous men to run free and issue a harsh punishment.

Autistic Boy Tortured,raped and forced to have sex with animals by two girls

Lauren A. Bush, age 17, of Mechanicsville, MD, was arrested and charged as an adult with 2 counts of Assault 1st Degree, 2 counts of Assault 2nd Degree, Soliciting Subject in the Production of Child Pornography, False Imprisonment and incarcerated in the St. Mary’s County Detention Center on March 10, 2014.

Lauren A. Bush, age 17, of Mechanicsville, MD, was arrested and charged as an adult with 2 counts of Assault 1st Degree, 2 counts of Assault 2nd Degree, Soliciting Subject in the Production of Child Pornography, False Imprisonment and incarcerated in the St. Mary’s County Detention Center. Two young women in Maryland have admitted to torturing a 16 year old mentally disabled boy over a period of months, including putting a knife to his throat on several occasions, kicking him in the groin, forcing him to masturbate and have sex with animals, making him walk across a frozen pond where he fell into the icy water several times, dragging him around by his hair and other acts which they reportedly recorded on camera phones.

Despite the fact that the mother of the autistic boy knew that he was associating with the two (and spending excessive amounts of money on one of them), she admits she had never bothered to meet either of them. Now the mother is afraid people will judge her for that. So is Hanna Rosin.

Writing for Slate Magazine, Rosin empathizes with the Mother, not so much the tortured boy, crossing the line in writing what amounts to a series of scripted excuses for the maternal clueless. “I feel her pain,” says the End of Men author. “From the little we know of the mother, it sounds as if she had to work a full day.” Surely that left her no time at all to get to know anyone her mentally disabled son was spending time and money on. The 15-year-old, who is charged as a juvenile, also is facing assault counts, authorities said. She is being held at the Waxter Children’s Center, they said.

All three teens attended Chopticon High School in Morganza.




Teens that hit tiny dog, broke his neck and set him on fire receive light sentence!

Meet Chuncky, an adorable one-year-old Chihuahua mix that was attacked for hours in what RSPCA inspectors called one of the most shocking cases they have ever witnessed. The troubling attack was carried out by four cowardly teenagers – three of which were underage at the time of the terrible incident. They later admitted to pounding the helpless dog over and over, before breaking his neck and setting him on fire using a can of aerosol deodorant. He was later tossed in a dumpster in Margarate, Kent, UK and left to perish.

The group actually believed the dog hadn’t survived, but a passer-by noticed the dog one day after and rushed Chuncky to the emergency vet. In spite of everything he went through, Chuncky pulled off a spectacular recovery. The three teens pleaded in October 2015 to ill-treating the pet in a way that they knew would cause him to suffer needlessly. They received a referral order for 12 months, ordered to pay costs and banned from keeping animals for 5 (five) years.

In my view, the sentence is extremely lenient and comes nowhere near what they were supposed to have been convicted to. What upsets me most is that these evil teens will be able to keep a pet again one day. After their five-year ban expires, they will be able to get a dog or a cat just like anyone else, which I find a scaring thought nonetheless. If they committed such acts once, they are certainly able to do so again.

The United Kingdom is in desperate need of an ‘Animal Offenders Register’. Such a registry has been implemented with success in several US states. People that have been convicted for harming animals should be immediately placed on that list and never be allowed to own animals again. This is the only effective way to keep people’s beloved pets safe. This registry should also be available online, to the public, so that everybody is aware about the people who have a history of mistreating animals. Let’s ensure that Chuncky’s legacy goes down in the history books. Support a nationwide UK ‘Animal Offenders Register’ right now!

Argentina, Teen strapped fireworks to dog’s head on Christmas eve for fun!


Volunteers with the animal welfare association ‘Perritos Callejeros BV’ kicked off the holiday season by scouring the neighborhoods of Bella Vista, , searching for puppies in distress. It didn’t take long before discovering a severely injured dog.

A group of teens (led by the boy in the photo) decided to have some Christmas fun and strapped a bunch of fireworks to the dog’s head and laughed loudly as they went off. The dog’s head was bleeding heavily and he will lose his sight in both eyes. The dog was immediately transported to a vet and is now fighting for his life. Prognosis is not looking good. Please keep this dog in your thoughts. Hopefully this dog will be strong enough and will be able to make it. By the time volunteers of the association arrived at the scene, the teens had already gone, but neighbors know exactly who this might be and have expressed their openeness to point out the troublemakers.

I want nothing more but to see these monsters that orchestrated this sick attack be brought to justice. That dog was innocent, he did nothing wrong!! Why treat a poor animal this way?? Aren’t there any other ways to spend Christmas in Corrientes province??

Please sign and share. Your involvement is crucial is this case! Support punishment for the culprits and help bring justice to this dog in need.

Tiny Dog Survives Brutal Torture After Teens Break His Neck And Set Him On Fire in the district of Thanet in East Kent, England. 'It’s a miracle he survived.

Tiny Chihuahua-cross Chunky had his neck broken and was set on fire before being dumped in a rubbish tip when he was less than one year old. 

He was stolen from his owner by four teenagers on February 24. Three of the teens, aged 16 and 15 at the time, admitted to punching and kicking Chunky before breaking his neck and leg, then setting fire to his face by lighting an aerosol deodorant can. 

They then fed him drugs before dumping him at the tip in Margate, Kent, where a passer-by found him the following evening and called the RSPCA Investigations by the RSPCA revealed that he was taken onFebruary 24 and tortured over a period of several hours before being dumping him the next day.  “It’s a miracle he survived,” RSPCA inspector Caroline Doe said. “This was the most disturbing case I have ever dealt with - by an absolute mile.  “The whole thing sends shivers down my spine. The defendants may have been young and confessed to being under the influence of drugs but the cruelty they inflicted on this poor dog was extreme, barbaric and inexcusable.”

The trio, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty in October to cruelly ill-treating the animal in a way which they knew would cause him to suffer unnecessarily.  They were all disqualified from keeping all animals for five years, given a referral order for 12 months and ordered to pay costs.  A fourth youth, aged 16 at the time of the offence, pleaded guilty to the same offences under the Animal Welfare Act, at a trial at Folkestone Youth Court on Tuesday. 

He was also disqualified from keeping animals for five years and given a referral order for twelve months, plus his father was made to pay costs of £5,800.

"I will never forget how terrified and depressed he was when I first saw him,” Doe added. "Thankfully he has now been restored to health and returned to his loving owners, though I fear he will always be timid and nervous as a result of his ordeal, and imagine the owners will never quite be able to come to terms with what was senseless and needlessly inflicted on their beautiful family pet.”

Teens accused of beheading puppies.

WILCOX CO., AL (WSFA) - The charges against two Wilcox County teenagers, who are accused of beheading three stray puppies with a machete and posting video of it on social media, have been upgraded. Ashley Johnston, 18, and his 17-year-old friend are now each charged with one count of aggravated cruelty to animals and one count of cruelty to a dog or cat in the first degree (torture). Both are Class C Felonies, each punishable by up to 10 years in prison. The identity of the juvenile hasn't been released due to his age.

Michael Jackson is the District Attorney for Alabama's 4th Judicial Circuit, which includes Wilcox County. He says the reason the teens no longer face misdemeanor animal cruelty charges is due to the horrific nature of the crime. His office has also filed a petition to charge the 17-year-old suspect as an adult.  


There is no excuse for killing three puppies and cutting their heads off. It's sad and outrageous," Jackson said. "We felt like given the horrific nature of these crimes, that these charges needed to be felonies. Wilcox County Sheriff Earnest Evans said the initial investigation indicates Johnston used his cell phone to record the 17-year-old throwing the puppies in the air and killing them with a machete at a home on Highway 10 West near Camden. The incident happened last week. 

"It would be fair to say the 18-year-old confessed. He kind of owned it, took the photos, and he actually didn't like it. The pictures were on social media for about 15 seconds," Evans said. The sheriff said Johnston seemed remorseful and emotional during his confession to an investigator. The district attorney says a caller alerted police after seeing the video on Snapchat. Snapchat automatically deletes postings after they are viewed. Evans said investigators haven't seen the posting but have spoken to others who did. The video quickly made its way around their school.  "A lot of students saw this," Jackson said. The sheriff said he hasn't seen a case like this in his 31 years in law enforcement. From the information that I have so far, this is just two kids being stupid," Evans said when asked about a possible motive in the case.

Dr. George Wood, a veterinarian at the Selma Animal Hospital, called the case a "travesty" and hopes it will not only bring attention to abused and unwanted animals but also encourage communities to step up and help their local shelters and rescue groups. "My prayer is that this heightened awareness will generate enough of an uproar in the community so that they might look for ways in order to help those animals that aren't taken care of properly," he said.

The district attorney says both teens were rearrested on their new charges Wednesday. The teenagers are expected to make separate court appearances in Wilcox County in the next few days.



In The UK: 'I've killed my dog, ha ha': Sadistic teenager hangs pet... and posts pictures on Facebook

A sick 17-year-old boy filmed himself hanging his pet pooch and posted photos of it on Facebook saying, 'I’ve killed my dog - ha, ha.' The picture shows the helpless dog - still apparently struggling - swinging from a clothesline while Kamil Hric looks on laughing. Hric, from Poprad, Slovakia - who was arrested after other horrified Facebook users alerted police - told prosecutors: 'So what? It's only a dog. I did it for fun.'

A police spokesman said: 'We don’t know what made him do this but we will be carrying out psychiatric reports.'

Lakeland Florida boy 17, accused of beating puppy to death with a stick. The puppy's' name was Bruce.


A 17 year-old Lakeland boy is accused in the disturbing beating death of a puppy. Polk County Sheriff's Office investigators say the dog's owner, Brandy Siniad, left her 10-month-old, chihuahua-dachshund mix named Bruce in the care of a neighbor on June 16.

The neighbor let the dog outside and then heard the dog barking. The neighbor walked outside and saw two males running away from her backyard and the dog on the ground with injuries, according to an arrest affidavit.

The dog was taken to a veterinarian who performed surgery for its injuries. The dog suffered from three broken ribs and had two holes in its chest cavity and a collapsed lung, according to the affidavit. The dog underwent 1.5 hours of surgery which included having its lung re-inflated. However, the dog later died from trauma due to surgery and injuries, according to the arrest affidavit.

Detectives identified Cody Rutledge age 17, as the suspect after interviewing the neighbor and other people who live nearby. Investigators say he blamed other juveniles for the crimes, however they all had alibis. Detectives say Rutledge later confessed to harming the puppy. Detectives say he did not give a reason for beating the dog. Deputies are still investigating whether anyone else was involved in the beating.

Rutledge was arrested and charged with 3rd degree felony animal cruelty and one count of giving false information to a law enforcement officer. He was taken to the Polk County Juvenile Assessment Center.

Dispatcher took animal cruelty call seriously, 911 recording suggests, but Paterson police never arrived

Related: Listen to audio of the 911 call

PATERSON — When the police dispatcher took the 911 call about a tortured neighborhood cat last month, she asked detailed questions and assured a concerned family that help was on the way. “I’m going to send a unit to you, and you give them all the information you can because they’re going to want it,” the dispatcher said. “I’m going to send them out there.” But the woman who placed that call to police dispatch said Tuesday that after waiting for 45 minutes, she saw no patrols arrive at the corner of Matlock and Temple Streets, where the male cat, named Quattro, was found bloodied and critically hurt, wheezing, with a damaged eye and broken legs.

The woman’s teenage nephews, who hours earlier stopped a brutal attack on Quattro by a group of schoolboys, stayed waiting at his side for another hour. They said they, too, never saw any officers arrive. The lack of police response to the incident has disappointed animal rights activists, who say that it illustrates a reality they see too often: that animal cruelty is not taken seriously. Police Director Glenn Brown said last week that an internal affairs investigation was under way to find out if units were ever dispatched and, if so, discover why they never reached the injured animal. Brown did not return messages on Monday and Tuesday seeking his comments about the status of that investigation and comment on the 911 call recording obtained by The Record. After Olah’s group took Quattro to a veterinary hospital, he became unresponsive and was euthanized on May 15.

Three children – ages 6, 10 and 12 – were suspended by the school district and have since been criminally charged with animal cruelty. Animal rights activists, led by Olah, support the criminal charges and that the case will be heard by a judge.

In recent weeks, the activists have clashed with some Paterson residents and the city chapter of the NAACP who argue that as an alternative to the juvenile justice system, the community should be allowed to provide the children counseling and encourage some kind of punishment without going through the juvenile justice system.

The police response to Quattro’s injuries illustrate that society needs to show greater compassion for animals, Olah said. If officers had to be rerouted on a human emergency, the call could have been referred to animal control, and even if police couldn’t find the cat and his rescuers, the family was only a phone call away, she said.

I can't find the petition but this is still disturbing anyways. The rabbit did not deserve this.


A family rabbit was stolen from Durham province,UK. The thieves filmed themselves while torturing the rabbit to death and later throwing it out the window. The thugs were apprehended.




So Sad.. CHILDREN DID THIS.. They beat her and tortured her. What roll did their parents play in this behavior? These parents should be banded from ever having an animal again.

Many people has asked about what is being done against the people that abused Hazel Grace. We do know that charges have been filed. TAF's attorneys are looking into what charges have been filed and want to make sure that these people are charged to the fullest extent. We will keep you posted.
--------

We just came back from picking Hazel Grace up from the airport and bringing her to receive emergency medical treatment. To say that my photos don’t adequately show the carnage on this girl’s belly or the other tortures that she has endured would be an understatement.

Upon further investigation, it was discovered that many complaints had been made to the authorities regarding the abuse that Hazel Grace was receiving by the children in the household. It was reported that the children were seen repeatedly kicking her in the head and punching her. It was not until after she was confiscated that her burns were discovered. When you are up close to her, it looks like they held her bottom over a flame or a grill and her vulva and belly were lit on fire.

The thought of these children kicking and punching Hazel Grace in the head is bad enough but burning her takes this to a whole new level of evil… serial killers in the making kind of evil.

By the time we made it to one of Hazel Grace’s doctors, her belly was bleeding and her gums were pale. It was at that point that they wrapped her up and brought her to the back in order to stabilize her and examine her wounds. We will be going back tonight to visit with her and I will post an update at that time.

There are many people that I would personally like to thank for helping Hazel Grace over the past few days but, for now, a general thank you will have to do.

If you are able to help out Hazel Grace by helping to sponsor her medical care, please make a donation at www.trioanimalfoundation.org .

Tortise tortured on video, 2 teens arrested

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The teenage girls accused of torturing a state-protected tortoise were arrested Friday, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. FWC investigated the incident after a video of two teens torturing a helpless gogher turtle went viral. A public outcry followed.

18-year-old Jennifer Emoke Greene and a 15-year-old juvenile, both from Orange Park, are accused of being the teens in that video. They were arrested on charges of cruelty to animals, a third degree felony, and taking, harassing, harming or killing a gopher tortoise, a second degree misdemeanor, according to FWC.

"We take these issues very seriously, "said Col. Calvin Adams, director of FWC's Division of Law Enforcement. "We appreciated the help from the public and our partners in working to protect our valuable natural resources."

"We will not tolerate this behavior in the Fourth Judicial Circuit. We are committed to fully prosecuting those responsible for the torture adn death of this vulnerable and threatened species," said State Attorney Angela Corey.

According to the FWC, if convicted Greene faces up to five years in prison on the animal cruelty charge. The misdemeanor charge carries a penalty of up to 60 days in jail and/or a $500 fine.

The 15-year-old's case will be prosecuted in the juvenile system.

UPDATE:

Jennifer Greene (pictured below), 18, and Danielle Dionne, 15, are charged with felony cruelty to animals, a third-degree felony, and taking, harassing, harming or killing a gopher tortoise, a second-degree misdemeanor. They were taken into custody at Dionne's Orange Park home and are both being held on $55,000 bond.

Greene made her first court appearance Saturday morning in the Clay County Courthouse. If convicted, Greene could get up to five years in prison on the felony charge and 60 days in jail and/or a $500 fine on the misdemeanor.

Dionne's case will be prosecuted in juvenile court and she will be placed in the custody of the Department of Juvenile Justice. Her picture was not provided by law enforcement because of her age.

The video went viral last week, sending social media into an uproar.

The cellphone video shows the tortoise being lit on fire, thrown on the concrete and being stomped on until it dies. Some of the video is too graphic to show and contains vulgar language. The teens in the video are heard laughing and talking about killing the turtle. "Let's light his head on fire," one said. "Burn baby, burn baby," one said. "Now you're scared of us, huh?" one said. "Ugh, I just want him to die," one said.

After multiple complaints into FWC, officials started an investigation and worked with the State Attorney's Office to determine what charges would be filed. FWC said the turtle is a threatened gopher tortoise, one level above endangered. "It's something that we're not going to tolerate," FWC spokesman Brad Stanley said.

Amber Teska, who lives next door to Dionne's house, said the younger teen didn't seem upset when she was arrested, but quite the opposite. "I had walked out to my mailbox and she was just in the car smiling," Teska said. "She smiled all the way from her house, being handcuffed to the car, and she was inside the car smiling, and it was just disgusting. It's like she doesn't even care."

The outcry for the teens to receive the maximum punishment allowed circulated on the Internet in the form of online petitions, including one by an Orange Park woman on Change.org. She said her petition garnered more than 10,000 signatures and she's glad the girls were arrested. Workers at the Clay County Humane Society were also relieved to hear the teens had been arrested.

“I'm very sad the tortoise died as it did, but I'm glad this is not being swept under the rug or ignored,” said veterinarian Christian Broadhurst. “It's being treated like the crime that it is.” Broadhurst said he's seen his fair share of animal abuse cases over the years, and he said what was even more disturbing about killing this gopher tortoise is how long it likely took to finally die. “Tortoises do everything slowly, walk slowly, and they die slowly, when they're hit by cars or in this case crushed under a foot,” Broadhurst said. “That tortoise probably suffered many hours before passing away to injuries.”

Ashtin Erd went to school with the two girls at Ridgeview High School and started an online campaign to raise money for a wildlife fund to help gopher tortoises. He's raised about $450. Erd said the public outcry over the video was intense and sometimes vicious. “They were shocked and most of them wanted to fight them and beat them up,” Erd said. “Most of my friends posted it and talked about beating them up, and they lived right around the corner.”

The family of one of the teens has installed security cameras at its home after receiving death threats over the video.

Nine-year-old child charged with animal cruelty for strangling chihuahua



A devastated family with their six-year-old little girl in Storm Lake, Iowa had to say goodbye to their beloved dog this week after their four pound chihuahua died as a result of a hanging injury alleged to have been inflicted by a nine-year-old Storm Lake little boy reported the siouxlandmatters.com.

That child has been charged with an aggravated misdemeanor of animal cruelty, and his case will be handled by the Juvenile Court Authority.

On Saturday evening, the chihuahua, named Cookie, was unusually quiet in the backyard at the Ledesma family home. When the dog's owner, Shannon Rosales went outside, she found her dog just lying in the grass unable to move.

"We discovered she had a broken neck. And it was due to her being swung around on her leash and thrown into the ground, we believe," Shannon stated.

Surgery would not have been able to correct the luxation and Cookie would never walk again. The family decided to have their dog humanely euthanized. Shannon's six-year-old daughter, Brianna just cried;

"I loved her so much. I was crying," the little girl told siouxmatters.com.

The family, although completely broken-hearted just want the little boy who allegedly swung four-pound Cookie by her leash and collar and threw her to the ground to get the psychological help he needs.

"We're going to see them; they're going to see us. But they're not going to be allowed back in my yard; just because we are going to get more pets and I don't want this to happen again," Shannon said.

Rest in peace Cookie. We hope the child is punished and finds the help he needs before he grows up to do worse evil deeds.

Make Boy Accountable For Dog Abuse through community service!

Make Boy Accountable For Dog Abuse through community service!

Please sign and share this petition to make this young boy accountable for his actions by injecting air in a dog’s body leading to its death. The concern is where did this youngster learn such animal abuse?Children are sponges and most often learn such abuse from their role models in the home. Maybe if we encourage authorities to “punish” this youngster for his abusive behavior through community service, especially some supervised work in a shelter or other animal facility, he can learn how to be respectable and responsible with animals.

A young man in Saegertown, Pennsylvania was found with syringes from a neighbor. He proceeded to use a syringe, filled with air and injected the air into his family dog’s blood vessels. The boy’s family reported the incident, according to Trooper Domenick.

After being injected, the Labrador-mix became quite ill for a week and eventually died. When air bubbles get into the blood vessels, they can cause symptoms similar to that of a heart attack or stroke. According to police, the boy purposely injected the dog, knowing full well what could happen.

This young man cannot be identified due to his age but, as the investigation continues, he will be charged of theft and animal cruelty in Crawford County Juvenile Court. Please sign and share this petition to make this young boy accountable for his actions by injecting air in a dog’s body leading to its death. Let’s encourage authorities to “punish” this youngster for his abusive behavior through community service, especially some supervised work in a shelter or other animal facility, he can learn how to be respectable and responsible with animals.

Sick pup chucker is let off. 

THE schoolgirl "star" of a vile YouTube video showing puppies being hurled into a river has been LET OFF by cops. Animal lovers were enraged last night after the blonde yob - who got a pal to film her - was deemed too young to face cruelty charges.

The six terrified black and white pups were seen squealing in terror as the sick lout in a red hoodie lobbed them one by one into the fierce current.


Spokeswoman Nadja Kutscher said: "The puppies thrown would never have survived." Transformers film director Michael Bay was so horrified by the 44-second video clip he too offered a reward.

The teen chucker, who is said to be under 18, was tracked down last month in Bugojno, Bosnia.


Cruelty to animals carries a fine of up to £5,000. PETA's Nadja confirmed: "Neither the girl nor the parents will be charged. This is outrageous."

Dog Freezes to Death Under Care of Teen Pet Sitter – VIDEO


 Four dogs, three removed by animal control due to neglect and starvation, too late for the fourth that froze to death under the care of a teenage pet sitter while the family was away on a 10-day vacation.  When the Taylor family of Clarksville, TN returned from their vacation that is what they were greeted with and now they want the 16-year-old, a friend of their son who was given the responsibility to look after their home and pets, to be charges with a crime.

It was lucky that the family’s neighbor’s noticed that something was amiss and called animal control who showed up with food and water for the neglected dogs and left a note for the homeowner.  When they came back to check on the situation, sadly it was too late for one of the dogs, a pitbull named T-mac, who had frozen to death.  They removed the other three dogs at that time.  Pity they didn’t take them the first time they stopped by but perhaps the situation didn’t seem dire then, it wasn’t as cold, who knows. “A couple of hours probably in this cold, especially when it dropped down to the teens, it wouldn’t take any time for an animal to freeze to death,” said David Selby of Animal Control.

Kevin Taylor was allowed to pick up his remaining three dogs and wants to press charges against the teen. The problem is that there needs to be evidence of some kind of a binding contract or agreement placing the responsibility for caring for the dogs in the hands of the 16-year-old. Animal control is checking with the DA to see what, if any charges, will be filed.

This is a sad situation, one that should never have happened. Something like this happened to me quite a few years ago when Jezzie was just a puppy and I also had two other dogs plus a menagerie of birds, luckily without the consequences that the Taylor family have to face. I had to go out of town on business for about a week and a friend said their 16-year-old son would be happy to stay at the house and care for me babies. I wasn’t comfortable leaving them but knew the friend and his family and they assured me that they would make sure everything was taken care of. On the second day away when I couldn’t get an answer at home when I called I cut my trip short, drove 6 hour and came back only to find that no one had been there, my house was a mess and the babies had no food or water. Luckily I was gone only a day and a half and aside from a mess to clean up and hungry and thirsty dogs and birds, there was no lasting consequences.

I can tell you that since then I have never left my babies in anyone else’s care and won’t. I question if the Taylor family called the teen that was supposed to be watching their home and dogs to check on things at home. Generally I don’t like to place blame on a family that has lost beloved furry family members but just how responsible is a 16-year-old? My heart does go out to the family for their loss and I hope this warns people to be extremely careful who you leave the care of your pets to. I’ve even heard horror stories about kennels and boarding places. It’s sad when you don’t know who to trust.

DA Drops Charges Against Girl in Hamster Death


Mar 11, 2011 |

The Brooklyn district attorney has dropped animal cruelty charges against a Brooklyn teenager who was accused of killing her brother's pet hamster. Prosecutors dropped the charges because of "inconsistency" in the various versions of the event, a spokesman said. The ASPCA had said the bizarre hamster dispute occurred last June, when 19-year-old Monique Smith came home to find her hamster dead. Suspecting her brother, Aaron Smith, 25, Monique Smith grabbed his pet hamster and allegedly threw it to the ground, before crushing the small animal with her hand and tossing it into the street. Aaron Smith reportedly called the ASPCA's Humane Law Enforcement unit.

According to Assistant Director Joseph Pentangelo, the agency arrived on the scene and found the hamster in the street in front of their Bushwick home. Authorities immediately began an investigation, and Pentangelo said Monique Smith avoided authorities for nine months before finally being arrested this week. "She knew the investigation was leading to her, she knew she was responsible for the hamster's death, and she was evading ASPCA agents," Pentangelo said.

But Larry Smith, Monique's father, told NBC New York that the hamster was playing in an exercise ball when his son kicked it accidentally, killing the tiny occupant. Their mother, Theresa Smith, told a slightly different story to the Daily News. Prosecutors dropped the charges, which included one count of cruelty to animals, three counts of endangering the welfare of a child and one count of aggravated cruelty to animals, a felony.

Now here's something you don't see everyday... 

Teen Burglar Kills Goldfish To Eliminate Witnesses



ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Illinois ——- An ignorant teen burglar who killed his victim’s goldfish because he ‘didn’t want to leave any witnesses’ was charged with animal cruelty and burglary in suburban Illinois. The unidentified 16-year-old boy along with his two teenage accomplices aged 15, and 17 were charged with burglary and animal cruelty for their role in a Jan. 24 break-in. The victims of the break-in, returned home to find their fish floating dead at the top of their tank, which had been filled with mustard, ketchup and spices.

A local police officer explained the reasoning behind the assassination. Sgt Mike Hernandez told the Daily Herald: ‘As a matter of fact, it’s a little disturbing. According to the police report, he looked at the fish tank and said: “We can’t leave any witnesses.” “He wasn’t remorseful,” Hernandez said. “Certainly something they didn’t need to do.” The burglars targeted the apartment because they knew it had been evacuated after a Jan. 19 fire, Hernandez said. According to police, they pried open a door and stole a video game system, CD player, 30 video games, 30 DVDs, a BB gun, jewelry and a safe. Police were able to track down some of the stolen items the boys sold to local pawn shops, Hernandez said.

Perhaps these teen morons should consider going back to school. Anyone with half-a-brain could tell you fish only have a 7-second memory and don’t possess the brains or vocal cords to produce speech. Duh!

Baltimore is Burning

  This recent case of horrific cruelty comes at a time when all eyes are looking towards Baltimore. The trial of Travers and Tremayne Johnson  ( Look under pending 2011 cases) is currently underway.  They are the twin brothers accused of burning a Pit Bull named Phoenix back in 2009.

Now Baltimore has a cat stuffed into a milk crate, doused with lighter fluid, and set on fire.   She was also nursing three kittens.   

The cat, named “Mittens,” was brought to BARCS (Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter), along with her newborn kittens after police responded to the call.  Witnesses told police that two boys placed Mittens in a milk crate on a back porch, doused the crate and the cat with lighter fluid and then struck a match and threw it in the crate. Once on fire, Mittens broke free from the crate and hysterically ran around the yard, running in circles until the flames were out.  She then ran into the home and was hiding under a table until police arrived.

Mittens has suffered from very severe third and fourth degree burns and her ears were burned off.  She will survive but  she will need long term treatment and her fur may never grow back.   Mittens is managing to nurse her kittens in spite of the injuries. What is with these kids?  Was this a copy cat of what happened to Phoenix?  What…they read it in the news and decided it might be great fun to torch an animal?  It really scares the crap out of people to see kids capable of committing such horror.  

Two 17 year-old boys have been charged with arson and animal cruelty.  They were arrested after the owner of the cat called the police.  Lets hope the authorities press charges to the fullest against these little scum-sucking bottom feeders.  Baltimore’s Anti-Animal Abuse Commission has its work cut out for them.  Signed into law just this past November, the Anti-Animal Abuse Commission will work to help Baltimore prevent and prosecute animal cruelty, including dog fighting.  This commission started out as a task force in response to the fatal burning Phoenix. Instead of hiding their heads, the city decided to confront animal cruelty head-on. The Commission comprises of the State Attorney’s office, Baltimore City Council, the Mayor’s office, BARCS, and MDSPCA (Maryland Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), along with the ASPCA.  They have already met and drafted a report that outlines a campaign to eradicate animal abuse. It includes recommendations for investigating animal cruelty cases, training law enforcement and other professionals who respond to animal cruelty incidents, and drafting anti-animal cruelty legislation.

Looks like they better start looking heavily at the juveniles of Baltimore.  There seems to be an epidemic out there and it doesn’t look like it will be eradicated real soon.

Teen Arrested for Killing 2 Puppies During Home Burglary – VIDEO

Puppies Killed - Jacksonville

Update 10/9/09 – Teen That Drowned Puppies During Burglary Identified

Four months after the horrific crime galvanized Jacksonville, FL, in which a home was burglarized and the burglar took a crate with two little puppies in it and tossed it in the backyard pool for the babies to drown, a suspect has been arrested.  And the suspect is a 16 year old teen!!

You can imagine the how terrible it was for the homeowner to come home that day to find her home had been invaded, ransacked and burglarized but to find her two puppies, cruelly drowned in their locked crate at the bottom of the pool!  She says she’s still traumatized by the incident. The teen’s name has not been released because he is a minor but it’s reported that he attends Sandalwood High School and investigators were alerted to him after a friend of the teen tipped them off.

Animal abuse is horrifying at any time but when you find a child as the abuser, it makes it even more horrifying and in this case, to throw to defenseless puppies that were locked in a crate, a place that was supposed to be safe, into a pool to drown, I am just stunned speechless at the cruelty. What could ever make anyone do that, let alone someone so young? This young man is now incarcerated and charged with burglary and animal abuse.

Someone this young, who most likely is being charged as a juvenile, you have to ask where he will be headed as he enters into adulthood? More violent and cruel crimes? A budding sociopath?  You wonder what he’s done in the past to lead up to this.

Good parenting skills would make a huge dent in the number of persons sent to prison, too, but humans always seem to go about solving a problem ass-backwards. There are at least three generations of young people out there that operate without the benefit of empathy, compassion and a mildly functioning conscience. It is a very dangerous time in our history.

Dog Brutally Tortured to Death, One Teen Killer Gets Jail. 

Tyler Vincent CastellanoI believe we may be looking at the face of a potential future psychopath here.  This is 18-year-old Tyler Vincent Castellano of Sevier, TN. In March Castellano and a 17-year-old friend were out when a stray dog came over to them and apparently got into a “scuffle” with their dog. After they broke the dogs up, I guess they decided to get rid of the stray and what they did to the poor dog was what animal control officers called one of the worst cases of animal cruelty they’d even seen!

They led the pitbull about a mile away from the home where they were at, tied her to a tree and beg and stabbing her. As she struggled and tried to get away she wrapped herself tighter and tighter around the tree and the boys continued to torture and stab her. Then they untied her and tossed her in a hole where they completed the job by beating her to death with a cedar branch. “It’s pretty devastating,” Sevier County Animal Control Officer Deputy Chris Hughes said. “The method in this particular one is what made it so brutal and made it stand out.” Castellano was charged with felony animal cruelty, intentional killing of an animal. He was sentenced to 60 days in jail, must undergo anger management classes, a psychological evaluation and counseling, must hold a job for two years and attain his GED. The 17-year-old companion was sentenced to 65-hours community service and a psychological evaluation and counseling as well.

Dog Owner Indicted For Throwing Year-Old Pet Off 6-Story Roof

Fabian Henderson 

He tossed his dog, Oreo, off a six-story building breaking her two front legs and ribs.  On February 19, 2010, Fabian Henderson was sentenced to 6 months probation and mandatory job training program.  He was told that he could not “own” or be in a confined space with any companion animals for a period of 1 year.  The Judge altered that part of the sentence, to allow him to visit his mother, who apparently shares her son’s “love” of animals. If he gets arrested again during his probation or if he does not complete the mandatory job program, he is subject to a 2-year prison sentence. His job training counselor is none other than Tiara Davis.  You know, the 200 pound ham beast who works as a vocational counselor for ex-offenders that dragged, kicked and beat her 9 pound little Pomeranian, Sparky.  Nice job there New York City.  Fabian Henderson is laughing and thumbing his nose in your direction. 

More on this kid: 3/23/11

Fabian Henderson

Did we actually believe we’d never hear about this knuckledragger again?  Like most of them, they are “revolving door idiots”.  Fabian Henderson, the guy who tossed Oreo from a roof and got a pat on the head by the courts is now back in the courts. He apparently approached a man at an intersection and asked the man what was in his pockets.  He and two other creeps allegedly punched the victim in the jaw, knocking him to the ground and beat him. Henderson is charged with three felonies and three misdemeanors for the alleged attack, including attempted robbery, attempted assault and attempted larceny.   Not to mention this is a probation violation from his sentence for the animal cruelty crime against Oreo. However, I cannot find any follow up on if he appeared in court, got the appearance postponed, got put in jail, got off, got thrown from a train, or was shot off into outer space.

A 10 Day Sentence for Felony Animal Abuse In Oregon!

Here we have yet another case of justice meting out injustice when it comes to an animal abuser! In mid-June, an 18-year-old Springfield, OR man, Lucas Xavier Fourmyle, decided to play martial artist on a 14-week-old puppy and pummeled the puppy named Buddy so badly with his fists and hands that he ruptured the tiny baby’s liver.

He was washing the puppy’s blood off his hands and taking it back tohis s crate when the puppy’s owner returned. This was not even his own puppy but he belonged to a roommate. Lane County Circuit Judge Eveleen Henry sentenced Fourmyle, a first time offender, to 10 days jail, 2 years probation and he is to pay $490.48 restitution to the puppy’s owner, the amount of the vet bill. Fourmyle also has to undergo mental health evaluation and any recommended treatment. He also can have no contact with domestic animals or weapons. The prosecutor was frustrated with the state’s sentencing guidelines and even the judge expressed concern that she would see this waste of human life back in court again and feared what he might do to other helpless beings in the future, such as children.

Teen Cheyenne Cherry taunts animal activists after guilty plea for killing kitten in oven.

Cheyenne Cherry  

Pet Justice

Young Tiger Lily   (Tiger Lilly is the kitty )

A heartless kitty killer hissed angrily at animal rights activists Wednesday, grinning widely as she took credit for stuffing the helpless pet into a 500-degree oven. "It's dead, bitch!" snapped an unrepentant Cheyenne Cherry, sticking her tongue out after a plea bargain that will put her behind bars for a year in the May 6 killing of tiny Tiger Lily. Cherry, 17, was confronted after her guilty plea in Bronx Supreme Court to charges of animal cruelty and attempted burglary in the May 6 killing at her former roommate's apartment. Tiger Lily was left to die inside the blistering oven after Cherry and a 14-year-old friend trashed the apartment of Valerie Hernandez, destroying furniture before stealing DVDs and food.  Cherry pleaded guilty to two charges in a six-count indictment. She was also arrested for robbing a man of his iPod at gunpoint. The dozen animal lovers who attended the hearing said they represented more than 20,000 people who signed an online petition supporting harsh punishment for Cherry.

Cat set on fire by a 9 year old, dies from injuries Darby, PA (US)

Incident Date: Sunday, Jul 5, 2009
County: Delaware
Disposition: Alleged

Police in Delaware County search for a person who set a cat on fire, killing the animal. The cat was still alive when it was found Sunday night, but it had extensive injuries and didn’t survive. The vet who treated him estimated he was only about a year old, but based on what she saw, it was a brutal year, and a brutal death. Animal control officer Dave Schlott rescued him Sunday morning, from behind the Darby library. “The cat was lying down. And he was amongst the poison ivy."
"He was really sweet, and it was sad because it was sort of like, the last few hours of his life were maybe the one time he was shown some affection and compassion, and was warm and cared for, we spent every second with him,” Resnick said. Witnesses reported seeing a boy in the area, right before the cat was found. Darby council president Janice Davis is determined to find whoever did this, especially if it was a child. "God if they harm the animal, what would they do next, you know, as they get older? If you have that much heart to go out and burn an animal, I don't think you would care too much about what you would do to a human."
Anyone with information regarding the incident should contact Darby Police at (610) 586-1100

Two Teens Torture, Kill Family Dog – VIDEO

dog-tortured1Ember, a black Labrador,  was reported missing by her family on February 28.  She was found Wednesday when two boys were riding their motor bikes in the woods behind New Albany School in Cinniminson, NJ and noticed wires sticking out of the ground.

When the boys investigated they found more than they ever expected. Pulling on the wires unearthed the head of the dead black lab, the wires attached to her collar. Authorities were called to the scene and confirmed that it was indeed Ember who was reported missing weeks ago and a necropsy revealed that death was caused by a beating and a .22 shot to the back of her head, execution style. It didn’t take the police long to track down the abusers who so cruelly and viciously killed Ember, two juveniles, a 15 and 17-year-old.  These two little monsters are already well on their way to a life of serious violent crime. At 15 and 17 years old their lives are essentially over unless they make some serious changes and I would like to be more optimistic but at the rate these teens are going, they’re going to wound up in prison before long, not just jail, but prison and if this is the kind of behavior they find preferable, then that’s where they belong and God help them!
