Evil Bastard….needs to be put down!!! What’s going to stop him getting & abusing another sentient being??? We need an Animal Abuse Registry, a global one that will help stop scum like this from ever owning an animal again!! If a person can beat then slash a dog with a knife, it’s not a one-off, it’s the owners habitual lifestyle. This man, & those like him have to be stopped…but by who??? Only a Global Animal Registry, accessed by all animal control centres & foster/adopt shelters, can help to stop other animals facing the same fate! If he decides to adopt or foster or gain access to shelters…this guy will just fade into the background with another dog from wherever & beat the shit out of it again! We can only help stop this by demanding a Global Animal Abuse Register; nothing else will work & stop monsters like him, from harming more sentient beings!!

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – A Green Bay man is accused of badly beating and stabbing his dog.

According to the criminal complaint, police were called after the suspect, Jacob Stephanus, 27, took the dog to Packerland Veterinary Clinic on Thursday.

The complaint says the white pit bull or boxer mix, between 9 and 12 months old, had several deep cuts, broken teeth, and an eye so badly injured it had to be removed.

Stephanus told the vet the dog was a stray and he was trying to help the dog for several days.

The vet said they didn’t look like injuries from a dog fight because there were no bite marks, and were more consistent with abuse.

Eventually, Stephanus admitted it was his dog. He said he was tired after working for 13 hours and got angry at the dog for being excited, and he struck it with a broom handle and slashed it with a knife.

Stephanus is charged with felony mistreatment of an animal. Jail records indicate he was released Friday on a $2,000 bond. “this is ridiculous, what’s to stop him doing it again?? NOTHING!!!!!”

Baby Girl Is Mauled To Death By Pitbull: Neighbours Say They Warned Police Of The Danger As Couple Are Arrested

Comments Off on Baby Girl Is Mauled To Death By Pitbull: Neighbours Say They Warned Police Of The Danger As Couple Are Arrested

“How many times do we have to go over this; it’s the bloody owners that give this breed a bad rap! Irresponsible owner’s are one of the major causes for all the problems the breed faces today.  Pitbulls have long been selectively bred, over the years to be fighting machines, they are sturdy & strong with a powerful bite force; genetics & training play an important role in how the dog will respond to other dogs or humans. Pitbulls are not inherently aggressive to people; unless taught to be! 

 Some owners (Perhaps the boyfriend) just want a pitbull to use as a power status or for intimidating others; which is just an accident waiting to happen; and it did!  This tragedy could have been avoided had the owner been a responsible one & kept the dog under control; instead of it being allowed to roam freely around the house, whilst they watched TV? The mother must have been aware of the dogs temperamentt; why didn’t she insist the dog be put in a crate or a locked room; whenever the baby was around? No dog should be left unattended with children; especially babies!  The owner would have known, without doubt, what his dog was capable of doing; for that reason, I think they should both be held responsible for this terrible tragedy!

  • 11-month-old Ava-Jayne Corless attacked by pet late last night
  • Neighbours report seeing ‘vicious and terrifying’ pit bull type dog
  • Victim’s mother and stepfather arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and bailed this morning
  • Baby’s father pays tribute to ‘the most beautiful and adorable little girl’
  • Lancashire Police say dog involved in the attack was a banned breed

A baby girl was mauled to death by a dog that neighbours had allegedly warned was dangerous.

Ava-Jayne Corless, who was just 11 months old, suffered horrific injuries when the American pitbull terrier attacked her while she slept.

Her mother, Chloe King, 20, and  boyfriend Lee Wright, 26, heard the commotion and rushed upstairs to rescue her from the jaws of the beast.

Paramedics were called and took Ava-Jayne to hospital where doctors were unable to save her life.

Victim: Ava-Jayne Corless, aged 11 months, has been mauled to death by a pet dog

Miss King and Mr Wright were questioned on suspicion of manslaughter and child neglect, and were today released on bail.

Lancashire Police said: ‘The two people arrested in connection with the death of Ava-Jayne Corless at Blackburn have both been released on bail pending further inquiries.’

Parents: Ava-Jayne pictured with her father Dean and mother Chloe, who are no longer together

A police spokesman said last night that the animal was banned under the Dangerous Dogs Act of 1991.

Senior officers have launched an investigation into reports that neighbours had called Lancashire Constabulary to complain about dangerous animals at the property in Blackburn.

Faisal Shahzad, 35, fled after two dogs broke through his garden fence. ‘I had to run quickly into the house and barricade the door because they were tearing after me,’ said the taxi driver.

‘I’ve got three children and they were all in the house absolutely terrified. The two dogs were scary. I called the police and they said something would be done and my neighbour also called the RSPCA.’ 

Another neighbour, 80-year-old Brian Harrison, said: ‘That dog was a nightmare for neighbours and people were worried about approaching it.

‘It’s an absolute tragedy that should never have happened. ‘Only last year it mauled to death a neighbour’s cat and nothing was done about it.’

Kyle Perry, 19, was chased down the street by the dog. ‘It was a big dog and it used to just bark and bark,’ he said. ‘I have been chased by it down the street. It was terrifying.’

Blackburn MP Jack Straw said: ‘What will it take to convince people not to keep dogs like this – and to get across to all dog-owners, of every breed of dog, that no dog should ever be left unsupervised with a baby?’

The incident happened at around 11pm on Monday while Miss King was visiting Mr Wright at his home 40 yards from hers.

The pair are understood to have put the baby to sleep in a bedroom and were watching television downstairs when they heard the attack begin. By the time they reached Ava-Jayne she had suffered catastrophic injuries. The dog was destroyed.

Chief Superintendent Chris Bithell said previous contact with neighbours would form part of the police investigation.

Last night,  police said the dog had been identified by experts as a pitbull. 
Owners cannot be prosecuted for dog attacks on private property until new legislation comes into force this spring.

Arrest: The victim’s stepfather Lee Wright is being questioned by police on suspicion of manslaughter

Tougher sentences will be introduced under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill.

Rachel Cunningham, of the Blue Cross animal charity, said: ‘We can only hope the Government’s planned changes to the bill will allow authorities to step in at the first sign of a dangerous dog and help prevent terrible events like this.’

Jennie Rudd, of animal welfare campaign group Naturewatch Foundation, said dog attacks were caused by irresponsible owners.

Danger: The dog was described as a ‘menace’ before the attack and previously killed a neighbour’s cat

She added: ‘If it has aggressive tendencies it is the owner’s responsibility to make sure it never gets near a child, and that it isn’t forced into situations where it feels it has to attack – because there is always a reason for a dog to bite.’

Last night Ava-Jayne’s father, Dean Corless, 24, said he was devastated by the tragedy: ‘I rushed to the hospital to see her straight away.

‘She was the most beautiful and adorable little girl, she was just the best. She was my  whole world. Her mum and I aren’t together any more, but I saw Ava-Jayne all the time. I will miss her every single day, I just don’t know what to do now.

‘It is just so tragic. I have my family around me now, but we are all devastated.’ The RSPCA confirmed the charity had been contacted after a dog at the address killed a neighbour’s cat. The death was treated as an accident with no action taken.

Proposed Sale Of ‘Puppy Doe’ Figurine Upsets Animal Activists

Comments Off on Proposed Sale Of ‘Puppy Doe’ Figurine Upsets Animal Activists

Monday, January 6, 2014 11:32 PM EST -By LISA BACKUS STAFF WRITER

The proposed sale of a figurine of “Puppy Doe,” a young pit bull mix who Massachusetts authorities say was tortured by a man later found in a New Britain hotel room is drawing the ire of animal welfare advocates.

Puppy Doe, a pit bull that faced horrifically brutal torture, had to be euthanized because of her injuries. Police are now searching for her abuser. | Animal Rescue League of Boston

The Puppy Doe case drew national media attention after the severely injured dog was found in Quincy, Mass. and had to be put to sleep due to the torture that was inflicted on the young female dog named Kiya by one of her former owners. Radoslaw Czerkawski, 32, of Quincy, Mass, pleaded not guilty in December to 12 counts of animal cruelty, and one count of misleading a police investigation in the case after he was found in a New Britain hotel room in October.

Czerkawski is also wanted for larcenies involving a New Bedford, Mass church. He is currently being held without bail as a flight risk, according to the Norfolk State’s Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts which is prosecuting the Puppy Doe case.

Herobuilders, an Oxford, Connecticut-based action figure company owned by Emil Vicale, announced Sunday they would be producing a figurine of the dog estimated to be one to two years old at the time of her death with 10 percent of the proceeds going to animal welfare groups. “I heard about the story and thought it would be a good thing,” Vicale said Monday. “I wanted to make a donation in Puppy Doe’s name.”

But animal welfare advocates who have been raising money in the dog’s name and staging peaceful protests outside the Norfolk courthouse when Czerkawski appears are appalled at the idea, said Deanna Terminiello of Leominster, Mass. “I was shocked,” Terminiello said when she saw Facebook posts promoting the product. “To see that made me sick that someone is trying to make a profit off of a dog that was tortured.”Several other animal welfare advocates also posted similar comments on Terminiello’s Facebook page, “The Truth About The Puppy Doe Vigil,” which has close to 300 members.

The figurines which will go into production this week can be purchased for $29.95. Vicale, who will only produce 2,000 of the resin statues, will donate 10 percent of the profits between the Animal Rescue League of Boston, which is involved in the Puppy Doe case, and the national ASPCA.

Vicale said he expects to make about $10 per figurine after he donates $3 per figurine to the two animal welfare groups. “We are not a charitable organization but we are trying to do something good,” Vicale said. A spokesperson for the Animal Rescue League of Boston said they had not been notified by Homebuilders of the potential donation but confirmed they had received other donations in the name of Puppy Doe. “If someone wants to give to the Animal Rescue League of Boston we recommend that they give directly to our organization,” said Ami Bowers, director of marketing for the group.“They could be giving us the proceeds but at this point we don’t know because we haven’t heard from them.”

A spokesperson for the Connecticut state Humane Society of the United States which offers rewards in animal abuse cases and help in prosecuting animal cruelty cases applauded the sale of the figurines. “It does seem like a well intentioned effort to raise awareness and help fund groups that support animal welfare,” said Ami Hornish, the director of the Connecticut chapter of the HSUS.

But Terminiello, who along with others helped raise $2,500 to donate to the Quincy animal shelter after the dog’s death and who attended a protest in December at the courthouse called the sale of the figurines “sickening.” “This is not about fame, it’s not about fortune,” she said. “Anyone who would profit off this dog is unimaginable.” David Traub, a spokesperson for the Norfolk State’s Attorney’s Office said Czerkawski is due back in court Feb. 11.

Comments Off on Graphic Image: Puppy With Ears Cut Off Expected To Recover

UPDATE:  December 28, OKLAHOMA CITY – It’s a happy ending for a little puppy who was the victim of horrific animal abuse.

We first told you about “Sweet Baby Jones”, the pit bull puppy a few weeks ago. He was found with his ears cut off, left out in the freezing cold when he was just four weeks old.

Puppy recovering well after his ears were cut off & left abandoned

The Bella Foundation and Neel Veterinary Hospital nursed him back to health.

Now, Jones will be adopted by a family from Colorado who works with the organization Stopping BSL, a group that works to stop discrimination against pit bulls.

Members of The Bella Foundation are sad to see him go, but can’t think of a better family to place him with.

“His foster mom took such great care of him. He is doing so well on potty training, he plays well with other dogs.” Jessica McLaughlin said. “He’s going to forget about everything that happened to him before this and he’s going to live a wonderful life.”

Jones has had all of his shots, been neutered and finally had the stitches removed from his ears.

The Bella Foundation brought Jones to their adoption event on Saturday for one last public appearance before he goes home with his new family.

Jones will have two siblings, a chihuahua and another pit bull. The family says Jones will fit right in.

November 29 OKLAHOMA CITY – Staff at The Bella Foundation are trying to find the person responsible for cutting the ears off a 4-week-old pit bull puppy.

Puppy found in freezing cold with his ears cut off!!

The puppy was found wandering around near 23rd Street and I-44.

“He had blood covering from his ears all the way down his neck and even onto his legs. And it was frozen to his fur and was also just stuck to him.” Eric McCune, executive director of Bella, said. “We’re still trying to get it off now because he’s so little, you know, it hurts. And so we’ll probably have to wait a few more days and a few more baths to get the rest of it off of him.”

Today, he is doing better. Tevin Garner with The Bella Foundation is nursing him back to health and giving him a good dose of snuggles.

“It just absolutely breaks my heart to know what he was going through when it happened, to know that he was awake, and you know, just an innocent little puppy being abused like that.” She said.

Recovering well after being found abandoned & his ears cut off

“This little guy, his ears were done with no anaesthetic, no pain killer, probably with a pair of scissors. And then set down and left to heal on his own.” McCune said.

They nicknamed the puppy “Sweet Baby Jones.” Over the next few weeks, the pup will stay on painkillers and antibiotics. Then the vet will reshape and fix what is left of his ears.

Jones is just a small part of an even bigger problem though; they are worried there could be more puppies like him out there.

“I personally have never seen a litter of one puppy, especially pit bull puppies.” McCune said. “Usually there are 7 or 8, sometimes more. And so he probably has brothers and sisters that are in this same situation.”

Now they’re working to save other puppies from suffering the same abuse as Jones.

“All he wants to do is be with people and cuddle despite what other people have done to him.” Garner said.

As soon as Jones is well enough, he will be put up for adoption.

The Bella Foundation believes his litter mates are somewhere in the area of N.W. 23rd Street and I-44 and hope to find them soon.

If you have any information on who did this to Jones or where those other puppies are, call The Bella Foundation at 1-866-318-7387. Tips are completely anonymous.

Comments Off on WARNING EX. VERY GRAPHIC IMAGES: Laura the Dog Physically and Sexually Abused

“WTF…ABSOLUTELY SICKENED…I was in two minds whether to post this because of the graphic content & the reaction it will raise; but we have to speak up for those who cannot! The depth of my hatred and disgust for the human race gets worse every single day. I cannot comprehend the pain & suffering this poor dog went through at the hands of a human being; nigh monster!! The sick minded POS that abused Laura, is not fit enough to scrape shit off shoes with his/her tongue; never mind breathe the same air as normal beings! I hope whoever did this is found & quickly, they need to pay big time! Evil generally seeks its own benefit at the expense of others and is based on general malevolence!! Whoever did this I hope they suffer a life of pain & abuse; it’s nothing less than they deserve!! PLEASE if anyone recognizes this dog, or knows who it belongs to, please contact your local police or http://www.lasthopek9.org or https://www.facebook.com/LoveForLaura

“Kudos to those taking care of Laura; I know they are doing everything possible to return Laura to good health…please see Laura’s Facebook page for updates etc!”

PLEASE NOTE VERY GRAPHIC IMAGES BELOW – VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED

Laura was scheduled to die at the Brooklyn Animal Control Center in NYC. A fate that so many face, but to think that Laura almost didn’t make it out of there is unfathomable.

Volunteers reached out to Last Hope K9 Rescue in Boston, Massachussetts to intervene and they immediately took actionhttp://www.lasthopek9.org/donate/

At the vets, Last Hope K9 Rescue learned that Laura had human bite marks on several areas of her body. She presented with redness and swelling around her eyes, wounds on her front and hind legs and mouth.

While these wounds are horrific enough, the depth of Laura’s abuse was much deeper. What was initially thought to be a mammary tumor and prolapsed uterus ended up being a sexually transmitted disease.

During her examination (by a male vet), Laura tucked her head in behind his neck and let out a loud sigh as he examined her backside.The doctor said it was like she was almost embarrassed. Despite the pain she must have been in, Laura never snapped or acted out, she just patiently sat there. To imagine that she endured this abuse for an extended period of time is no consolation.

Even with this level of repeated, unimaginable abuse, Laura is forgiving. She wants nothing more than the love and acceptance of people, despite the injustices bestowed upon her for who knows how long. Laura’s recovery and treatment will take at least 6 month.

In the shelter, Laura’s abuse was evident, but it wasn’t until she was examined by our vet that we truly came to understand all that Laura has endured. For Laura to be as loving and trusting as she is with humans, speaks volumes to the kind of dog she is.

She is currently in treatment for her conditions and her emotional healing has begun in her foster home. Laura has touched the lives of so many just by being her sweet-natured self. She deserves the very best and now she will get it.:-https://www.facebook.com/LoveForLaura

 Unbelievable and disgusting case of animal abuse: Dog RAPED by humans and left for dead

LAURA WAS RAPED & ABUSED! Here is her story. Please consider to contribute to her fundraiser Lisa Anne Bakal wrote: “Horror upon horrors happen daily to these innocent dogs. Laura was another stray pit bull who entered the Brooklyn shelter.

They thought the growth on her was mammary tumors. When she hit the kill list, a good friend of mine who is a volunteer did all she could to get Laura’s life saved. She was one of those dogs who just “get you”. Last Hope K9 Rescue stepped in and saved her at the 11th hour.

Once they got her to their vet, the real horror was discovered. She put her head down and sighed as the “male” vet went behind her to examine her. It turns out those “tumors” weren’t tumors at all. She was repeatedly RAPED by a HUMAN and she has a sexually transmitted disease. She has HUMAN bite marks all over her little body.

She will need 6 months of heavy medical treatment to rid her of the STD she contracted from this filthy parasite who raped her. My eyes will never be dry, the tears are never-ending. Please follow her page on FB “Love for Laura” and the wonderful Last Hope K9 Rescue for updates.

Police: Florida Man Kills, Then Cooks Family Pit Bull

Comments Off on Police: Florida Man Kills, Then Cooks Family Pit Bull

“WTF…If this sick bxxxxxd doesn’t get prison, then what’s the point in having a justice system for animals?”

Tampa, Fla. (WTSP-TV) – A Tampa man is facing animal cruelty charges after he allegedly killed his family’s pet dog, and then cut the animal up for future meals.

Killed Pt Bull, cut it up & cooked it

Investigators say 25-year-old Thomas Elliot Huggins strangled the young pit bull mix pup on Thursday morning, and then cut the animal into quarters and put the remains in the freezer.

A family member called police after learning what happened. Arriving officers say they found the dog’s ribs cooked in a pot on the stove, and the animal’s head was in the garbage.

An investigator with Hillsborough Animal Services tells 10 News that Huggins “expertly” cut the animal apart, and this may not be the first time he’s done this.

Huggins was taken into custody and charged for the inhumane and cruel killing of the dog, and is currently in jail on $2,000 bond.

Animal Control took possession of the remains.

Have You Heard About the Disturbing New Animal Abuse Trend Known as ‘Trunking? Petition To Stop This Inc.

Comments Off on Have You Heard About the Disturbing New Animal Abuse Trend Known as ‘Trunking? Petition To Stop This Inc.

“I sadly have to say this is nothing new, it’s been going on for years; which is why I included the video as proof.  Isn’t treacherous dog fighting brutal & cruel enough for these sickos? Are people becoming so desensitised to the value of innocent life, that they have to create sicker and sicker means of “entertainment? What happens to the dog that’s won the fight but beaten up badly in doing so? They are not going to spend money on fixing up these dogs because they don’t mean anything to them in the first place…they will just be thrown out with the trash & the thugs will get another; there are always plenty homeless pit bulls  to be had!.”

“Abuse like this will not stop until the laws are changed. A few days in prison or a fine isn’t going to stop these dick heads!! Lets face it, if they are that cold-hearted as to put 2 dogs in a trunk to fight to the death…what value do they put on a human life, other people’s property? what do they give to the community??? Enough said; so make the punishment a real one, that hopefully will deter others & stick by it.”

“Don’t know about you guys, but I am sick of reading the appalling abuse these beautiful dogs go through!The breed nobody wants from a shelter because they are deemed vicious!! But they aren’t born that way, it’s not their fault & they shouldn’t have to pay with their lives for the damage done; when all they have ever known is violence & fighting. Make the humans who taught them all they know pay for it; not the dogs!!”

June 4th 2013 – What is “trunking?” It involves dogs (typically pit bulls), the trunks of cars, and possibly some of the most inhumane treatment of animals seen in a long time.

How does trunking work? According to animal rights activists, this is what happens during a trunking:

  • Two dogs are locked into the trunk of a car and then driven around.
  • The car’s stereo plays at a loud volume in order to cover the sounds of the fighting.
  • After a short time or when the fighting appears to have stopped, the dead dog is tossed out and the survivor goes on to fight again.

“And Here Is It In Action – This is not a new craze as one can tell by the video date!  As always viewer discretion advised.

Hidden in Darkness: ‘Trunking’ is Dog Fighting’s Ugly Secret

Uploaded on 22 Aug 2008

NEW YORK — One of the most barbaric forms of animal cruelty has an underbelly which for years has remained literally hidden in darkness: “Trunking” is dog fighting‘s ugly secret.

The latest and most-publicized incident of trunking came to the attention of authorities after a woman in Florida’s Miami-Dade County area reported seeing dogs being put into the trunks of cars in order to have them fight to the death.

Animal control authorities visited the reported location and found 10 dogs, many exhibiting wounds that are typically associated with fighting.

The Miami Herald reports that the home where these dogs were discovered was the focus of a pit bull investigation in June 2012. The breed is illegal in the county and someone called to say that pit bulls were running loose in the neighborhood. The person who lived there denied owning the animals but received a citation.

Additional complaints were called in just two weeks ago. Callers reported the pit bulls were still on the loose and that one had killed a neighbor’s dog.
