Puppy Tortured to Death Finally Gets Justice She Deserves

 Radoslaw Czerkawski. He is charged with 12 counts of animal abuse, remains behind bars on $500,000 bond, and faces 55 years in prisonCzerkawski had gotten Doe for $40 on Craiglist.

Never, EVER give away an animal for free! And if you’re going to sell it or ask for a donation, thoroughly investigate who you are giving an animal to. Check vet references and visit their home. (Czerkawski lied and said he had a farm in Connecticut. Asking to visit the farm that he did not have would have immediately kept the puppy out of his hands.)Czerkawski is also accused of stealing checks from a church and misleading police.

Police are confident Czerkawski is their man — they say they found Puppy Doe’s blood on his apartment floor. Disgusting! This “man” deserves everything he gets and more.It’s about time that animal killers and abusers get hard time for their crimes. If Czerkawski gets the max, he won’t be out until he’s almost 90 — if he makes it out at all.Through it all, vets say that Puppy Doe, despite what she’d been through, was loving and friendly to all. Can you imagine? Animals are certainly better than humans in a lot of ways, and anyone who takes advantage of that doesn’t deserve freedom.

“WTF…what sort of Evil walk amongst us? It could be a next door neighbour, these people don’t advertise their perverse activities! This may be the first, or one of many cases that this sick pathological psychopath may have carried out! Who knows how many more may have been grotesquely tortured & just not found! Sick bastards like this, soon tire of torturing the same living beingGod forbid this person hasn’t played out these perverse actions on a child yet!! It may or may not be the first attack, but I doubt it will be the last!  I know many people don’t want to get involved etc. but there is such a thing as anonymity…so come on guy’s; these animals rely on the kindness & voices of others to save them!!”

Internet users have united to get justice for a dog so brutally tortured that she had to be euthanized.

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

On Aug. 31, a female pit bull was found on Carrolls Lane in Quincy, Mass., near a playground, according to Boston’s Animal Rescue League, or ARL. The dog, who was likely 1 to 2 years old, weighed half what she should have. She had suffered starvation and abuse “sadistic” in nature, including stabbings to the eye and a sliced tongue. Her injuries were so severe that she had to be euthanized.

Veterinarians working on the animal, named Puppy Doe, were sickened by her state.

“They’re a freak, a total freak,” Dr. Martha Smith-Blackmore, who performed the autopsy on the tortured pup, told Boston’s WBZ of the alleged abuser. “Splitting her tongue, burning her nose, stabbing her eye, it’s the totality of the types of injuries. Not only was she beaten, she was stabbed [and] she was burned. It’s all kinds of injures. It’s a sick mind that can do this to an animal.”

The Quincy Police Department and animal rescue groups are asking for help. The ARL is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the prosecution of the perpetrator. Animal groups Misty’s Journey and Second Chance Rescue NYC have already raised more than $11,000 on YouCaring.com toward a reward for information provided.

A Facebook group titled “Justice for Puppy Doe” already has more than 25,000 likes and has attracted support from as far away as Brazil.

“We need anyone who knows who owned and abused this dog to contact authorities,” District Attorney Morrissey said, via the ARL. “The injuries cataloged in the post-mortem examination are grotesque and indicate consistent starvation and abuse over an extended period of time. It is highly unlikely that this level of sadistic cruelty could be shown to one animal and not be part of a pattern involving other animals or perhaps vulnerable people. We need to find the person who did this and see what else they are doing.”

Meanwhile, the dog’s alleged original owner, Laura Hankins, has come forward. Hankins told the Boston Herald she and her boyfriend bought the pit bull mix last December for $200 on Craigslist. But her landlord eventually told her the dog had to go. Soshe put the dog back on Craigslist.

She gave the animal to a woman from Grafton who “seemed wonderful,” according to the Herald. The new owner sent updates, but those stopped in July.

The Puppy Doe case has reignited the fight against free pets on Craigslist, a practice that has been linked to abuse and death.Change.org petition set up in memoriam of Puppy Doe demands Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster end the practice.

Via Change.org:

It’s beyond words that this sweet, innocent dog, that once knew love had to suffer this violent, evil fate, but at the very least, if … “giving away” of pets was banned on Craligslist there would be a small amount of justice in her name.

The petition has nearly 20,000 signatures.

As of Saturday, police were following up on six specific tips, according to the Herald. The Patriot Ledger reports that a memorial has been set up for Puppy Doe along a fence at the playground near where she was found.

Anyone with information, is asked to contact the Animal Rescue League at 617-226-5610 or Quincy Police Det. Thomas Pepdjonovich at 617-745-5774.

Comments Off on Video: Tethered Duct-Taped Bait Dog Found Tied To Fence

“WTF…It never ceases to amaze me just how cruel humans can be; it is we humans that are the animals!. Somebody knows who this dog belonged to, they don’t just bloody appear from know where.  Please, If anybody knows anything about this case, please do the right thing & inform those below. Please keep this sweet dog in your prayers; so that he may make a full recovery. His leg may have to be removed but lets hope he will come through this & find a forever home!”

A one-year-old pit bull was rescued in Kentucky after having been found tied to a fence with his snout duct-taped shut. A reward is being offered for information on who did this.

Duct-Taped severely wounded, Frodo was found tied to fence

It is believed he was being used as a bait dog because he is covered in bite marks.

He clearly, in my opinion, was a bait dog and this is not the first time being thrown into a ring,” said Rebecca Eaves, director of The Arrow Fund. “Basically, a dog got him here, broke his canines and pushed them in.”

The pup, now named Frodo, is being treated at the Blue Pearl Animal Hospital, where he is being pumped full of antibiotics and painkillers. One of his legs will have to be amputated because of injuries, but staff say he’s lucky to be alive.

“It’s a shame what they do to these animals, and I’m emotional because I’m sick of this,” Eaves said. “This is a sweet, sweet puppy, that was just shown a life of horror.”

Frodo was found on the 2600 block of West Kentucky Street in Louisville. Investigators have no idea who tied him to the fence, and are urging the public to come forward.

“Right now, we want to plead to the community,” said Donald Robinson with Louisville Metro Animal Services. “You can remain anonymous. Please call our tip line, let us know if you’ve seen anything, if you’ve seen this particular animal out in that particular neighbourhood.”

The Humane Society of the United States is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the individual(s) involved.

We want to put this person behind bars,” Eaves stated. “Dog-fighting is rampant here in Louisville and everybody needs to be serious about it. Don’t be afraid. Turn them in.”

$5,000 Reward Offered After Kitty Found Burned In Kensington

Comments Off on $5,000 Reward Offered After Kitty Found Burned In Kensington

“My apologies for the graphic image, but this type of heinous cruelty needs to be seen by the public; so they can see what sort of monsters are out there! If you see any strange or suspicious looking behaviour, between kids or adults, messing around with animals…it could end up in a similar tragedy to this…so please stay vigilant, don’t keep quiet…if it looks & sounds wrong, it probably is wrong!!”

“WTF… seriously, if ANYONE is friends, know’s or lives with the person that did this, then I would be very worried about your own safety too! Just because you’re a friend doesn’t mean this repugnant vermin won’t turn on you!! Only the mind of a demented, deviant psychopath, could purposefully set fire to a tiny kitten. What happens when they have grown tired of inflicting pain on innocent animals, they may turn to children; anyone they can intimidate & manipulate! Could you have that on your conscience, knowing you could have stopped this sadistic bully; by just speaking up now?”

“This horrific attack happened last week, can anyone remember someone coming home; smelling of flammable liquid or who may have had burns or singe marks on their clothing or shoes…Or…perhaps someone has overheard a person boasting or bragging about setting fire to a kitten? Just remember, those who commit crimes of this nature, normally don’t stop, because of a fine or even jail!! they will soon strike again! Somebody knows who did this, please help put an end to this now. If you know anything, that may help catch the monstrosity that did this, please contact the number below!!”

A $5,000 REWARD is being offered to help authorities catch whoever intentionally set fire to a kitten found in Kensington last week.

A woman recovered the 4- to 5-week-old male kitten last Thursday at Allegheny Avenue and F Street. Authorities said the kitten suffered burns over more than one-third of his body, with most of the burns on his head and back.

The Humane Society of the United States announced the reward yesterday, citing the “depraved act of cruelty.”

“This is the latest in a disturbing string of animals apparently being intentionally lit on fire,” Sarah Speed, Pennsylvania state director for the Humane Society, said in a statement. “This depraved act of cruelty will not be tolerated, and we hope this reward will encourage anyone with information to come forward and help bring the perpetrator to justice.”

The kitten is being treated at Crown Veterinary Hospital in Lebanon, N.J., and is expected to recover.

The Pennsylvania SPCA is investigating. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call 866- 601-SPCA (7722). – By Solomon Leach

Burglar Who Blinded Dog Will Go To Jail

Comments Off on Burglar Who Blinded Dog Will Go To Jail

When a burglar broke into the home of an 86-year-old, the resident’s dog Kiri tried to defend the home. The eight-year-old border collie lost an when the burglar kicked her in the face.

Now that burglar will be spending 22 months in jail for his crimes.

Kiri’s owner, who doesn’t want to be identified, was at church last September when a burglar broke into the widow’s home in Worcestershire, England. As burglars ransacked the home Kiri tried to defend it. The burglars attacked Kiri in response. Kicked in the head Kiri would lose one of her eyes from the attack.

Kiri’s owner is distraught over what has happened to their dog. “I can’t believe anyone could be so heartless and cruel to an animal,” Kiri’s owner said. “This has come as a real shock and I am gutted by what has happened to Kiri.” Kiri has become fearful and needs constant reassurance from her owner who is also now afraid to go out and leave Kiri home alone.

Neighbors of the elderly widow and Kiri were disgusted with what had happened and raised a £500 reward to find the burglar. Finally that burglar has been found and will be serving time in jail. A twenty-one year old named David Senior pleaded guilty to the burglary and attack. In total he will serve 22 months in jail, 16 months for the burglary and another 6 months for drug charges.

Comments Off on Iowa Man Arrested For Death Of Starved Dog Found In Crate

“WTF…I’m trying to write whilst tears run down my cheeks…I’m just so sickened by the fact this was done on purpose…the evil that resides in this pig needs destroying…take a good look at him…I pray to God he gets what he deserves!”

On Thursday night, the man believed to be responsible for the starvation and death of a young dog, who was locked in a crate and dumped in Waterloo, Iowa, was arrested.

Ty Alyn Hickman

According to the Quad-City Times, 23-year-old Ty Alyn Hickman was arrested by Jesup police, who received numerous tips on the abuse case from the public.

Maria Tiller, a Waterloo animal control and code enforcement officer, stated:

Without the help of the public, we never would have got this far,”

A substantial reward was offered for information leading to the arrest of the person behind the despicable crime.

Caleb, described as a Labrador retriever mix, was found back on Feb. 16, locked inside of a feces and urine filled crate. It was evident that the dog has suffered greatly before finally succumbing to starvation.

Hickman is facing up to two years behind bars for the misdemeanor charge of aggravated animal torture.

Ty Hickman, 23 was arrested Thursday in Jesup, Iowa and charged with aggravated misdemeanor animal torture according toKwwl.com. The male dog named Caleb was found dead, locked in a kennel and likely starved to death amid his own feces and urine.

Hickman was booked into the Buchanan County Jail by the Jesup Police Department. If found guilty Hickman faces up to two years in prison.

The tragic story of Caleb, a Labrador retriever and Great Dane mixed breed was uncovered on Feb. 16 when his emaciated body was discovered in a pet carrier kennel on the 2700 block of Independence Ave in Waterloo. Authorities believe the dog had already died from dehydration and starvation and then was dumped on the side of the road.

When the story of Caleb hit social media, animal lovers and compassionate friends were so disgusted by such an egregious act of apparent animal cruelty, they joined Agape Fosters and helped to raise $7500 for a reward leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for this reprehensible deed.

Never underestimate what a community can do when motivated. Local police received many leads which helped lead to the arrest of Hickman and the alleged charges against him.

Pathologist suspects people killed 50 seals on P.E.I.: Necropsy Confirms Seals Bludgeoned To Death

Comments Off on Pathologist suspects people killed 50 seals on P.E.I.: Necropsy Confirms Seals Bludgeoned To Death

A gruesome discovery of over 50 dead and bloodied Grey Seals at Murray Harbour has sparked international outrage with demands that the perpetrator/s be brought to book.

Please sign the petition below & read the details of the Necropsy; the human animals that did this brutal slaughter, must pay!

A P.E.I. wildlife pathologist says he suspects that people are behind the deaths of more than 50 grey seals that washed up in Murray harbour last weekend.

Fisheries officers have sent samples of the dead animals to a wildlife pathologist at the Atlantic Veterinary College. (Name withheld by request)

Pierre-Yves Daoust, a wildlife pathologist with the University of Prince Edward Island, says students from the school found the seals on the province’s eastern shore Saturday, just a day after seeing them healthy in the same area.

He says he suspects the seals were killed by people as they were found with wounds on their bodies, but he is carrying out necropsies to rule out the possibility of infections or other natural causes of death.

Daoust, who works at UPEI’s Atlantic Veterinary College, says it would be highly unusual to have such a large number of seals die so quickly of natural causes.

He says the results will be passed on to investigators with the Fisheries Department in about a week.

Justice for the seals bludgeoned to death at Prince Edward Island

Postmortem results conducted by wildlife pathologist Dr. Pierre-Yves Daoust confirm that the seals, many of them still nursing and just a few weeks old, were bludgeoned to death by having their skulls smashed in with a blunt object. Several seals managed to survive this savage and unprovoked attack only to suffer further agony by freezing to death.

We are offering a R5 000.00 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator/s.

Police In San Francisco Still Searching For Mugger Who Killed Dog

Comments Off on Police In San Francisco Still Searching For Mugger Who Killed Dog

“Someone knows this sick MF.. so do your conscience a favour & tell police where he is…it may a child that gets killed next time”

Police in San Francisco are looking for 35-year-old Laurice Barrett. He is suspected of mugging a woman and throwing her dog into oncoming traffic. A reward of nearly $5,000 has been raised for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Barrett.

Around 5 p.m. on December 28th a woman was getting out of her parked car when an assailant grabbed her and yelled at her to give him her money. Then the woman’s 12-year-old Pekingese mix, Roxy, started to bark at him. That’s when the attacker picked Roxy up held her above his head and threw her into oncoming traffic. He then took off running.

Roxy was rushed to a veterinary hospital where she had to be euthanized. Now police are looking for the man responsible for Roxy’s pain, suffering and death. A surveillance video was released on January 2nd which led to a tip a week later that named Barrett as the assailant.

A warrant is out for Barrett, who is facing felony charges of animal cruelty and robbery. Barrett has been previously arrested by the San Francisco police, though they have not stated for what crimes. The San Francisco Police Department has released Barrett’s mug shot to the media.

The woman is glad that someone was able to step forward to give Barrett’s name and is hoping someone will be brave enough to step forward and turn him in. “At the end of the day I am fighting for Roxy,” she said. “I’m her voice, I’m her mom. I want justice.”

Anyone who has information on Barrett and his location is asked to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or end a text message that includes “SFPD” to TIP411.
