“WTF…if anybody knows the callous, cruel hearted bastard that did this; please contact the number below…do everybody a favour & get the psycho off the streets & in jail; for a very long time…with both his kneecaps blown off!!”

CRAWFORDVILLE, Fla. (WTXL)Wakulla County deputies are trying to figure out who left a puppy on the side of the road after being shot in both of his legs.

Florida lawmakers just passed a bill this past legislative session aiming to crack down on this.

Wakulla County animal officers say its not uncommon for pets to be dropped off on the side of the road, but they say they’ve never found one that’s been shot.

Its the sound of pain and agony from a nearly four-month old golden shepherd that has Wakulla County Animal workers on a mission to find out who abandoned him.

“It was a very heinous, heinous act, shooting a malnourished dog,” said Dr. Guhrt.

Dr. Reed Guhrt has been treating the puppy they named Zeke since animal shelter found him shot in both of his legs last Thursday.

Zeke weighed only 18 pounds when he was found abandoned and left to die.

“There’s a possibility that this leg will have to be amputated because pieces of his bones are just missing, there are no bones left,” said Dr. Guhrt.

Zeke was also covered with ticks and fleas when they found him. Dr. Guhrt says he was shot with a high caliber gun and now he can barely walk.

The dog obtained some serious injuries and somebody caused it to an animal and didn’t have any respect to an animal life,” said Dr. Guhrt.

Its tragic incidents like this that prompted Florida lawmakers to unanimously pass tougher animal cruelty laws, that may carry fines of up to $10,000 and or misdemeanor and felony charges. Governor Rick Scott hasn’t signed the bill, but it would take effect on July 1st if he signs it or allows it to become law without his signature

Mark Carter, a Wakulla County animal control officer says they support the law hoping it will take effect this summer.

“Hopefully when you toughen up on animal cruelty or animal abuse or animal neglect maybe that puts something in their minds that says, hey I think to think twice before I do this,” said Carter.

Who harmed zeke is still a mystery but Dr. Guhrt says the good news he’s on his way to recovery.

“Everyday he’s coming to the office he appears to be doing better and better,” said Dr. Guhrt.

Wakulla County animal control officers say if know of any animals being abused or know anything about this particular case you’re urged to contact them or the sheriff’s office.

Also, the Crawfordville Animal hospital is accepting donations for Zeke. Call 850-926-2089.

We will still be accepting any and all donations given his surgeries will be quite extensive and costly.

Chihuahua Recovering After Owner’s Grandson Beat It Then Stuffed It In A 350-degree Oven

Comments Off on Chihuahua Recovering After Owner’s Grandson Beat It Then Stuffed It In A 350-degree Oven

“Thank God, this sick bxxxxxd’s brother came back & found Kudo in time; I dread to think what would have happened, had he not! This is just another reason, why we need Animal Abuse Registers, he already confessed to having anger issues; so why wait until he hurts somebody else? Once his case has been dealt with, his name will slip into the abyss; along with all the other animal abusers! So for the protection of the public & their pets, these maniacs need to be kept track off…just like paedophiles are!!”

A 20-year-old Oregon man has admitted to stuffing his grandmother’s tiny Chihuahua in a 350-degree oven after repeatedly punching it in the head because it nipped him.

Kevin Dean Parrish said he may have cooked the dog alive on Friday, but his brother came home and interrupted the horrific animal abuse

Little Kudo, a Chihuahua-pincher mix, suffered cuts and bruises from the beating, as well as singed hair and burns on his paws that were so severe he had trouble standing.

Veterinarians say the six-year-old dog is expected to make a full recovery after Parrish’s family nursed it back to health.

Parrish, who says he has ‘anger issues,’ lives with his grandmother in Lyons, Oregon, and was caring for her dog while she is out of state.

He told police that he was pre-heating the oven to cook enchiladas for his lunch on Friday when he went to check on Kudo in his cage.

Parrish, who is 5-foot-11 and weighs 200 pounds, said he became enraged when the little dog nipped his hand. 

‘Anger problems’: Kevin Dean Parrish, 20, admitted to abusing the dog

He took Kudo out of his cage and punched the nine-pound dog in the head several times. 

He also admitted to police that he choked the dog. 

After battering the animal, he said, he decided to stuff it in the oven, which was heated to 350 degrees. 

It is unknown exactly how long the dog was inside before Parrish’s brother came home and saw what was happening.

The suspect’s brother took the dog to a veterinarian and his father called police.

Parrish faces felony aggravated animal abuse charges.

Ft. Myers woman facing animal abuse charges

Comments Off on Ft. Myers woman facing animal abuse charges

FORT MYERS -A woman in Lee County is facing some horrifying charges of animal abuse.

Deputies say Ana Torres knowingly left her Yorkshire terrier to die inside a kennel.

They caught her while taking part in an operation with Lee County Animal Services, who was in the Tice community cracking down on people not taking care of their pets.

His owner, Ana Torres, reportedly told Lee County deputies that the dog had been hit by a car.

But instead of taking him to the vet, she allegedly said she put him back in his cage because she had to go to work. “WTF…work was more important than the one thing that loved her unconditionally…her dog”

“He was lying on a pad she had placed under him that was stained with blood,” said Ria Brown, with Lee County DAS. “OMG…that poor baby, died alone in pain & agony…I hope the image of that little dog suffering; torments her for the rest of her life!”

At the Tice home on south Galaxy Drive, Torres’ daughter Carmen said her mother didn’t realize how injured the Yorkie was.

She loved the dog. She loves anything and she loves everybody. She’s not a bad person,” Carmen said. “She’s a very caring person. Things just happen.“THINGS just happen? yes they do but the difference here is that this owner didn’t give a shit about the dog at all!!

Lee County Animal Services made the gruesome discovery while working with other agencies – cracking down on animal and code violations.

Brown explained when they knocked on Torres’ door, “We had asked Ms. Torres if she had any pets and she said no. But there was obviously barking coming from her back yard.”

Investigators say she eventually admitted to having animals. That’s when they found the dead Yorkie and got story about how he would up this way.

The dog’s body was sent off for further examination so investigators can determine the exact cause of death

If convicted, Torres could receive up to $10,000 in fines and/or up to five years behind bars.

Two Horses Dead in Wyoming County Animal Neglect

Comments Off on Two Horses Dead in Wyoming County Animal Neglect

WYOMING COUNTY, WV -59 News first told you of animal abuse in Tazewell County a month ago.

Now another case, this time in Wyoming County, is even worse. Police are looking for a man named Donnie Ellis on animal cruelty charges. Two horses are dead due to not being properly fed in the Reedy Creek area.

59News reporter Jessie Gavin tells what makes this case so appalling.

“Warning, some of these images may be disturbing:”-http://www.wvnstv.com/story/20231921/two-horses-dead-in-wyoming-county-animal-neglect?autoStart=true&topVideoCatNo=default&clipId=8019332

We’re told Donnie Ellis was offered a deal. Instead of paying rent for his home, all he had to do was feed and take care of four horses because the owner was unable to care for them. Now officers are looking at why they say he intentionally neglected to feed two of them for quite some time.

“In this particular case I would think it’s just a fact of being cruel to the animals and just being lazy. Just didn’t take the time to care for the horses,” said Wyoming County Humane Officer Ray Farmer.

Farmer talks through how officers became aware of what was happening.

“Two officers that answered the complaint on Monday, they found two dead horses. One of them was in the barn and there was no food or water present, the other one was at an outside facility and it too didn’t have access to food or water.

From what I understand, the gentleman that was supposed to be caring for the horses, did have access to food and water, he just wasn’t providing it to the horses. The one horse appeared to be deceased for several days, possibly longer than a month. The other one had probably just died within the last week,” he said.

The other two horses under Ellis’ care are being taken care of and are expected to live.

“His brother came and got the horses and took them to his facility. Those two horses at this time are getting proper care and that’s something that we are going to follow up on to see that they are getting taken care of properly,” he said.

Comments Off on Preteens Accused of Animal Cruelty on House Arrest

“I hope & pray the judge will come down heavy on these little shit heads, if they have the mind-set to do that now, what are they going to be like when their in their late teens…it will be kids or the elderly…if this isn’t nipped in the bud now!”

LAS VEGAS Two 11-year-olds accused of animal cruelty that led to the death of six kittens appeared in Clark County Family Court Monday afternoon.

A judge ordered house arrest for the boys. They are required to wear ankle monitoring until Oct. 30 when the judge will decide if the case will go to trial. “IT must go to trial to get these psycho’s off the streets until they understand the ramifications of their actions”

The boys were caught after neighbours told police they saw them throwing rocks against a building in the area of the 9600 block of West Russell Road in the southwest Las Vegas valley.

It was later discovered they were…

throwing the rocks at a cat giving birth.

The pre-teens each face seven counts of animal cruelty.

Update on Xena The Warrior Puppy

Comments Off on Update on Xena The Warrior Puppy


“WOW…what a transformation, I can’t believe how far she has come in such a short time. I donated a few dollars but honestly thought it would pay for another dog! How wrong we all were. It just show’s with the right love & attention, these throw away dogs can become the centre of someone’s family. To be loved, snuggled up to whilst watching TV, & making you laugh with their silly antics.”

“Her story has touched many people, probably because of her amazing spirit to live! Please don’t pass these dogs off as untouchables, they all have the biggest hearts & just want to share their love with someone…& ask very little in return!!”

“If you can afford to donate a few dollars, it all adds up, hopefully when the next case comes along, the fee’s will be there to literally pay for their lives. If you donate & see the transformation, it makes one feel a part of their healing, & is such a joy to behold, knowing that you helped save a life, is the best feeling in the world”

When we rescued Xena we had no idea if she would make it through the day.

We took her to the vet hoping that she may eventually pull through. We were shocked to see how quickly she responded and amazed by her will to live.

This girl’s story of survival has touched more people than we will ever know. In honor of Xena’s one month anniversary, we’d like to raise funds to help more shelter pets in need.

There are many animals in need at Dekalb County Animal Services every day. Xena is one of the lucky ones.

We hope that we can raise enough money to help/treat more animals that need our help

Kenton Co. man faces 175 animal abuse charges

Comments Off on Kenton Co. man faces 175 animal abuse charges

“This man faces 175 animal abuse charges, yet he was arrested & then immediately released on bond! What’s the bloody point in arresting him in the first place if sod all is going to be done about. I’m presuming he could just go straight back home & carry on neglecting or abusing other animals that he seems free to be able to purchase…Just a wast of time & tax payers money…stuff the bond business, get him in jail now so he doesn’t harm other animals…it just crazy!”

COVINGTON — A man faces 175 charges in Kenton County’s second-largest animal-cruelty case in memory, said Dan Evans, the county’s director of animal services.

Randolph D. Brinkman, 59, appeared for a pretrial conference Thursday in Kenton District Court, in the case that led to removal of 175 animals from his property on Decoursey Pike, Evans said. Several years ago, more than 200 animals were taken from another property in the county, Evans said, making Brinkman’s case the second-largest in the county, to Evans’ knowledge.

An attempt to reach Brinkman for comment Thursday was unsuccessful.

Kenton County Attorney Garry Edmondson, said, “He wanted a lawyer, so the court has appointed him a public defender.” Edmondson didn’t know which public defender would be appointed. The charges are misdemeanors punishable by up to a year in jail and a $500 fine each, Edmondson said. He wouldn’t comment on how much jail time Brinkman would realistically face.

The case dates to July, when one of Brinkman’s neighbours called to report a pony was on the loose, Evans said. The neighbor thought that the pony belonged to Brinkman. When an officer went to Brinkman’s home, he saw a variety of other animals and had concerns about them, Evans said. That led to a search warrant.

On July 11, authorities found animals living in “deplorable conditions,” Evans said, including cages that were too small and lacking food and water. “Some were living with dead animals,” he said.

The animals were mostly chickens, roosters and rabbits, along with a few cats and dogs, Evans said.

During the search, authorities also discovered several marijuana plants, leading to marijuana-cultivation charges against Brinkman, Evans said.

On July 20, Brinkman failed to appear in court; authorities issued a warrant for his arrest and held an emergency hearing regarding custody of the animals, Evans said.

The animals were placed at four different farms. Brinkman was arrested but was released on bond, Evans said.

His next court hearing is set for Oct. 4.

Judge Won’t Reduce Bonds For Animal Abuse Couple

Comments Off on Judge Won’t Reduce Bonds For Animal Abuse Couple


The St. John’s Road couple facing 23 counts of second-degree animal cruelty will remain in Franklin County Regional Jail on $46,000 bonds.

William Coy, 48, and his wife Sandra, 55, were arraigned Aug. 17 after 23 animals were seized from their property. They pleaded not guilty last week in Franklin District Court.

In court Tuesday, public defender Kristin Gonzalez argued to have their bonds lowered, given that the charges are considered a misdemeanor under Kentucky law. The maximum penalty the Coys face is one year in jail and/or a $500 fine.

Franklin District Judge Chris Olds said he thinks the bond is appropriate because he believes the Coys are a danger to society and a possible flight risk, given their previous statements.

During the arraignment, Sandra Coy said she would leave Franklin County and the state of Kentucky as soon as the case is over.

Olds ruled to keep the bonds at $46,000.

Officials initially seized 23 animals on Aug. 17 from the Coys’ property on St. Johns Road. The following Tuesday they rescued nine dogs and one horse.

Dozens of other animals, including llamas, pigs, goats and pit bulls remained on the property last week, but have since been removed.

The Franklin County Humane Society has taken the dogs that were seized, but the other animals are at undisclosed locations.

Olds agreed to Franklin County Attorney Rick Sparks’ request that the animals can be fostered to save the Humane Society money. Keeping the animals is costing the Humane Society more than $200 per day.

The Coys are due back in court Sept. 25 for a status hearing. The jury trial date will be set after that.

Women Throws Box Of Cats And A Yorkshire Terrier Out Of Moving Car

Comments Off on Women Throws Box Of Cats And A Yorkshire Terrier Out Of Moving Car

Unbelievable…watch the video at the link below!” 

Animal Control workers in Clarksville, Tennessee watched in horror as a woman threw a box containing seven cats out of her moving vehicle at the shelter, and later returned to hurl a Yorkshire Terrier out of the car and into the street.

“The car sped out of our parking lot, opened up the car door while it was moving, and threw out a Yorkshire Terrier out of a moving vehicle. The dog chased after the car for a while because obviously it was the owner,” said Montgomery County Animal Control Director Karen Josephson.

She and local police would both like help from the public to identify the woman. Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Clarksville police at (931) 648-0656.
