Missing Dog Reunited With Family After Being Found Badly Beaten

Comments Off on Missing Dog Reunited With Family After Being Found Badly Beaten

“OMG…literally sickened, what makes a person want to do such a heartless, heinous thing to an innocent dog? Is it an anger problem, do they despise dogs so much, or is it done purely for fun…I would say the latter!! Somebody know’s who did it, if it’s teenage knob heads, they will be bragging about it…if it’s an older person, they might not appear to be their normal selves. Please help find those responsible, if they have done it once, they will do it again; only next time the dog or a child may not live! ” 

Dusk, a 7-year-old black mixed breed, was found in very bad shape last Friday morning in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. She had clearly been beaten in the head.

Dusk found with fracture to skull which may make her lose her eyesight.

 

She is recovering well, but the beating was significant enough to fracture her skull and make her lose her eye sight.

Bucks County Emergency Dispatcher Jessica Finnell received a call from a shop owner for an injured dog on Friday morning around 8 a.m. The call caused Finnell to break down into tears. Dusk was found sitting in a parking lot, avoiding people and had visibly been beaten in the head.

The beating was so hard that her eyes had come out of their sockets!

We need to catch the cold hearted BxxxxxD that did this! If you know anything, I beg you to please contact the police; protecting whoever did this means you are allowing it to happen…it could be a child next…do you want that on your conscious?? 

Animal Control Officer Thomas Morris took Dusk to a nearby veterinary clinic where they were able to put her eyes back in the sockets, but there is little chance she will be able to see again. Dusk sustained multiple skull fractures, but lacked any abrasions or road rash that would indicate she had been hit by a car. The veterinarian explained that if someone takes a bat to a dog’s head it can often lead to the eyes popping out. The veterinarian believes this is what happened to Dusk.

Finnell was still thinking about the call on Friday night. She decided to visit the veterinary clinic and check up on Dusk. Finnell would end up taking Dusk home with her. She didn’t intend to keep Dusk permanently but wanted to give her a home until a proper one could be found.

She started a ChipIn fund to help care for Dusk, who was easily adapting to living with Finnell and her family. Dusk was well-behaved, housebroken and was good with Finnell’s children. Finell suspected that Dusk might have a family.

Dusk did have a family and they spent all weekend looking for her. Marie Walkgorski and her son William Schilling became very concerned when Dusk didn’t show up for her food on Friday. They spent all Friday, Saturday and Sunday looking for the dog but couldn’t find her. They didn’t realize that the township had recently added Saturday hours for animal control calls, so they didn’t call until Monday. Walkgorski was so worried she c couldn’t sleep all weekend.

On Monday Waligorski saw a story online about an injured dog found in Bristol Township and instantly recognized the dog as Dusk. Animal Control checked video and pictures of the dog and checked the county dog license number to confirm that Dusk was there dog. Finnell returned Dusk to Waligorski and Schilling on Tuesday. “She was excited, tail-wagging. She seems happy that they were there,” Finnell said. “I’m happy for her. I miss her like crazy but I’m happy she is back in her home and can have some of her normal life back.”

Dusk’s family discovered after reviewing home surveillance footage that she had been jumping their 6-foot back-yard fence almost every night, leaving around 2 a.m. and returning around 7 a.m. Dusk prefers to spend her time outdoors in the family’s fenced-in backyard, they keep a dog house out there for her. Unfortunately, Dusk’s escape on Friday morning led to an encounter with someone who likely beat her with a bat. Someone her family and authorities want to find.

Her family is horrified that someone could do something so horrible to their sweet dog. “It’s so crazy to know it was so close to home. It’s something you don’t really imagine happening,” Schilling said. “It’s really hard to take it all in that someone could really do that to a creature that has been nothing but loving.”

Animal Control Officer Morris is determined to find those responsible for hurting Dusk and plans to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. Finnell plans to keep the ChipIn fund open to continue to help Dusk and her medical needs.

The ChipIn can be found here for those wishing to donate.

“Anyone knowing anything contact Bucks County, Animal Control Pennsylvania. Sorry don’t know the number”

Search On For Those Responsible For Beating A Dog With A Hammer

Comments Off on Search On For Those Responsible For Beating A Dog With A Hammer

“OMG…what is wrong with someone who can be so savage against an animal. I bet the coward had the dog tied up whilst doing it too, they make me want to puke! Well I sincerely do hope they find the Bxxxxxd who did this, because they won’t stop at one dog. The heartless soul that did this needs to have a hammer thrown about their head, see if they like it…but we know what will happen…if caught, max of 2 years so will probably get off with 6 months & a fine at most…but I pray to God I am wrong!!”

“Watch the video at the link below, sorry, Word Press won’t install certain video links.!”

An investigation is under way in Jacksonville, Florida on the abuse of a pit bull mix named Flo. On Friday morning Flo was found with severe head injuries.

Flo’s injuries cracked her skull, she has been abused all her life judging from the scars all over her body!!

She was brought to the Jacksonville Humane Society where they performed emergency surgery to save her life.

Flo’s injuries were very serious. The front of Flo’s skull had been crushed, several of her teeth knocked out and she had a long gash on her back.

“There did not appear to be any damage to the brain, but there were metal fragments around the wound, leading doctors to believe it was a hammer.

To create that large a hole in the skull and the cracks emanating from it took a lot of force,” said Denise Deisler, Executive Director of the Jacksonville Humane Society.

Metal fragments were also found on Flo’s teeth, many of which had been fractured.

There were also scars on Flo’s body suggesting she had suffered previous beatings and abuses.

Flo spent almost three hours in surgery. Nine pins were placed in her skull to hold it together.

Flo is recovering well and throughout her whole ordeal has been sweet and gentle. Now the focus is on getting Flo fully recovered and finding those responsible for this abuse.

The Humane Society is asking people to help fund Flo’s recovery through the Bo Needs Help Facebook page. The page was set up by the Jacksonville Humane Society back in June when they saved another dog, named Bo,  who was found badly abused. Bo is now fully recovered and with new owners. The Jacksonville Humane Society is hoping for a similar happy ending for Flo.

An investigation is under way to determine who is responsible. “We want to know who did this and we want them off the street and not able to do it again,” said Deisler. Anyone with information about Flo’s abuse is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.

New York City cops are looking for a man seen in a surveillance video severelybeating a dog inside a Harlem elevator. The incident took place inside the Wagner Houses at 11:30 a.m. on Aug. 26th.

PUPPY BEATEN: Man Beats Pitbull Puppy in Elevator

Irving Sanchez Caught On Tape Abusing Pit Bull Puppy

In the video, a man police say is Sanchez is seen walking into the elevator with a small pit bull puppy named Max. Once inside the elevator, the man is seen dragging the dog from side to side of the elevator by its leash, hurling it into the elevator walls. Then the man leans in and hits the dog repeatedly with the handle of the leash, wielding the strap like a club. Finally the man starts stepping on the dog and appears to kick him. Sanchez was arrested the next day. He is charged with aggravated cruelty to animals. Max was taken to an animal shelter.

May 12, 2010 Caught on Tape: Man Pleads Guilty to Beating Lap Dog in Elevator

 

If animal cruelty turns your stomach, you should not watch this video.

A man has admitted to viciously kicking his girlfriend’s lap dog in an attack police witnessed on security cameras installed in a Manhattan apartment building elevator.

Chris Grant has been sentenced to three months in jail after pleading guilty to an animal cruelty charge. He’s 21. “Three months in jail…ridiculous, should have been 3 years or more…if he is so flippant about abusing the dog in an elevator, what does he do behind closed doors?…FxxxxxG Knob Head. He will be out now, probably abusing some other innocent dog, which is just heartbreaking & gut wrenching, thinking about what he could be doing! Will he be caught NO. However if the Animal Abuse Registry had been operating, at least officers could keep a check on him…I loved the News girls reaction, I too would like to kick his nads in!!

Police officers monitoring surveillance cameras in the Harlem building as part of a search for a murder suspect arrested Grant when they saw him on tape abusing the black-and-white Chihuahua and Pomeranian mix, named Chuvi-Duvi. 

The cameras captured Grant patting his knees as if to invite the 12-pound dog to be petted, then kicking it away. His lawyer didn’t immediately return a call Wednesday. Tests showed Chuvi-Duvi escaped serious injury. The plea was entered Tuesday.“On the outside perhaps, but that beating & others the dog probably received, could have caused serious Psychological  implications! Abuse, stays with the victim, for life, no matter what kind or to whom, it is never forgotten, trust me!”

Police later found the man accused of stabbing nine-year old Anthony Maldonado, the victim of one of the city’s first homicides of 2010.

The two crimes were not connected, but Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said solving them involved the same basic tools: a camera, and a cop paying attention.

In condemning the alleged dog-kicker at the time, Kelly called Grant “an abusive individual who repeatedly and brutally beat a small defenseless dog.”

See for yourself, but if you’re an animal lover, be advised: it’s tough to watch.

On January  2012 –More dog abuse in housing project elevator

Vodpod videos no longer available.

A New York City woman has been charged after police say she was caught on video kicking and jerking her Pomeranian on an elevator in the same housing project where surveillance cameras captured a dog being beaten earlier this month.

Tiara Davis was charged with torturing and injuring an animal Monday. The incident was recorded by video cameras in the elevators of the Grant Houses Sunday morning. Police released the videos Tuesday.

The video shows Sparky, her 4-year-old Pomeranian, being beaten and jerked by its leash until unconscious. Davis, 31, said she lost her temper when the dog relieved himself before getting outside. “I kept telling him, ‘Sparky! Wait! Wait!’ ” Davis, a vocational counselor for ex-offenders, told the New York Daily News. “I became a little frustrated,” she added. “It was never my intention to hurt him.” Sparky is recovering at the ASPCA hospital

New information on kitten attacked with golf club

Comments Off on New information on kitten attacked with golf club

 

UPDATE: Rocky Alexander, the man who rescued Lucky, says their donation goal of $4500 has been reached. The amount was initially $3000, but the cat requires plates in his elbows rather than pins. Everyone is thrilled and hopeful the surgery will be done tomorrow. The kitten is in Louisville. Alexander says if theres any money left over, it will be donated to an animal shelter locally.

————————–

UPDATE: The man who rescued Lucky the cat tells WKYT they dropped the kitten off at a specialist in Louisville Thursday morning. He says the family was able to put the donated $1500 down for the cat’s needed surgery. He says more money is needed, however, to finish paying the bill. He says Lucky is so badly hurt that screws won’t work and the vet will have to use plates in his legs. He says there’s a chance one leg can’t be saved at all.

————————–

RICHMOND, Ky. (WKYT) – A family is doing all they can to help a kitten, whose front legs were broken by a man with a golf club.

Rescuer Rocky Alexander with Lucky the cat

He’s purring with two broken legs,” commented Rocky Alexander as he cradled the kitten in the vet’s office. “He’s a fighter. He wants to make it.”

Alexander rescued the kitten late Monday in Richmond. Two teens witnessed a neighbor throwing the 3-month old kitten against a concrete wall. They say they then saw the man take a golf club to its front legs.

“There’s no telling what this little guy went through that night,” Alexander said. “I think he’s been through enough and deserves to be saved.”

Veterinarians at Barnes Mill Animal Hospital say both of the kitten’s legs are broken at the elbow. The break is so bad that doctors say a specialist will have to perform the surgery. The cost for the procedure is anywhere from $1800 to $3000. Now the kitten’s new family is trying to raise money for the surgery.

“The next step is getting him to a specialist,” explained Dr. Jack Taylor of Batnes Mill Animal Hospital in Richmond. “It has to happen pretty soon because these fractures can get too old to be repaired so we’re really looking at a week to ten days.”

Dr. Taylor says in the meantime, he’s given Lucky a heavy dose of pain medication and taken care of routine shots. He says the little guy is eating well and enjoying the attention from loving people.

If you’d like to help the kitten, named Lucky, you can make a donation on PayPal.

Man gets 30 months in prison for beating dog

Comments Off on Man gets 30 months in prison for beating dog

“I suppose 30 months jail is better than 3 months, although, still not good enough for his heinous crime!  Plus non ownership of pets for 2o years! It will be the non ownership of a pet that will actually save another from being beaten! As for ‘Anger management classes etc. it’s just a waste of tax payers money…I posted a story the other week, were the guy had to have several sessions in anger management, which he duly did…but it wasn’t long before he was abusing dogs again!”

” I don’t believe in second chances for abusers, banning them from keeping, living or working with animals FOR LIFE…is the most inexpensive & effective way, to stop another animal suffering !! Of course having animal registry’s, would also keep tabs on the abusers & possibly serve as a deterrent too! “

A Des Plaines man pleaded guilty today to animal cruelty charges for beating a dog outside his house in June.

James Robert Wesolaski, 51, was sentenced to 30 months prison and ordered not to own a pet or live in a residence with any animal for 20 years.

Des Plaines-Charge: Felony aggravated cruelty to animals

Wesolaski, of the 1100 block of South Wolf Road, entered a guilty plea on felony animal torture and cruelty charges for pinning his small brown dog to the ground in front of his home in early June and punching the dog four or five times as hard as he could, prosecutors said.

After the beating ended, witnesses reported, Wesolaski picked up the limp dog by the scruff of his neck and took it inside, prosecutors said.

Police, called to the home by witnesses, found the dog with swollen, bleeding eyes and broken capillaries, which authorities said indicated the animal had been choked.

They said that Wesolaski told police that he was having a bad day and beat the dog because it got outside. Police took the dog, along with two others inside the home, to Northwest Animal Hospital in Des Plaines, where they were treated. Wesolaski was bleeding from apparent dog bites on his hand and face when officers arrived, authorities said.

Authorities also said Wesolaski’s June arrest violated his probation from an incident earlier this year in which he admitted to trying to wrest a Taser from a police officer.

Wesolaski did not speak during today’s hearing at the Skokie Courthouse other than to say understood the plea deal. He has been jailed since his arrest.

Judge Lauren Edidin told Wesolaski that his 20-year ban on having a pet is “a very serious part of this agreement.”

The judge also advised Wesolaski to get anger-management counseling and treatment for alcohol abuse.

The beaten dog, a Lhasa Apso named Teddy, has made a full recovery. Teddy and Wesolaski’s other two dogs have been adopted into new homes, Cook County prosecutors said.
