Kentucky Authorities Seek Help To Identify Woman Who Threw Chihuahua In River

Comments Off on Kentucky Authorities Seek Help To Identify Woman Who Threw Chihuahua In River

“WTF…my…how I would like to have words with the bitch that left that poor baby; what if nobody had seen her leave the box, the poor little pup would have surely died. I guess this makes me so flaming mad because I have a chihuahua, who is my best friend, where ever I go, he’s there with me; he’s the only one, out of my dogs that my horse actually likes! No animal deserves an end like this could have been. So if anybody knows who did this, please contact the number below; if an animal is ill, there are way’s & means to deal with it, you don’t just leave it in a bloody box to die a slow painful death. I hope this bitch has nightmares every night about leaving that baby…I hope karma really fxxxs with her head!!”

It was on Tuesday that a blond haired woman between 5’2″ and 5’6″ got out of a late model silver Chevy SUV carrying a small box and walked to the side of the Frankfort Sewer Department on Kentucky Ave. towards the river.

A short time later, the woman returned to her car without the box and left.

According to wkyt.com, witnesses immediately went over to the area and picked up the box. In it was a tiny female chihuahua puppy no more than five weeks old.

Authorities are asking for the public’s help in identifying the woman. The woman faces second degree animal cruelty charges if found guilty.

Meanwhile the little puppy is being cared for at a foster home for the Franklin County Humane Society where she is now being treated for Parvo. One of the women responsible for the puppy’s rescue is hoping to adopt the adorable canine once she gets well.

Did the woman who was seen leaving the puppy at the sewer department abandon the puppy because the pup was sick? Parvo is a very contagious virus transmitted from dog to dog and can be fatal for puppies. It is very important to have puppies inoculated against the virus early in life.

It is never permissible to abandon an animal because they are ill. There are many options available to pet owners, other than leaving a defenceless animal to languish in pain until they die.

The disease presents with vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and lethargy. Early treatment increases the survival rate.

If you have any information on the identity of this person, please call the Frankfort Police Department at (502) 875-8523 or call Crime Stoppers at (502) 875-8648.

Sheffield: Dog Is Beaten, Tied To Tree, Then Set On Fire

Comments Off on Sheffield: Dog Is Beaten, Tied To Tree, Then Set On Fire

“My apologies for the lack of recent posts; but my painful disability meant I had to take some time out…I only wish I could say the same for stories relating to animal abuse…as this is just heartbreaking!” 

“Whoever did this is one sick, perverse, evil bastard; if they didn’t want the dog, why not give it up to the local shelter. Someone who intentionally causes harm like this to an animal; is a danger to all.  If you know who did this & are covering for them..then you are as much to blame; you might as well have done the deed yourself! They need to be caught asap; before they carry out more despicable acts of cruelty. Please if you know anything …contact the police, no matter how trivial you may think it is, it could help catch the person responsible!”

“I am slowly losing my faith in humanity, it never ceases to amaze me how barbaric, pernicious & utterly primitive some humans can be towards animals! I can only take solace in the fact that if this person in not caught…that Karma will eventually knock at their door!”

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.

Hope The Dog found abused in Parker County – showing improvement

Comments Off on Hope The Dog found abused in Parker County – showing improvement

Hope is getting better and she could be heading to her new home in about three weeks.

That’s the word from Parker County authorities Tuesday on the dog that was found a week ago with her snout taped shut and her tongue protruding. With her snout wrapped with electrical tape, Hope was unable to drink, eat or pant for more than 24 hours, authorities said.

How Hope was found, her tounge swollen from the tape wrapped around her mouth. She also had around 100 stitches to close cuts on her back!

A $35,000 reward has been offered for the arrest and indictment of the suspect or suspects who tortured her.

No one had been arrested as of Tuesday morning.

On Monday, officials at Bowie Drive Animal Hospital said that the constriction of the tape compressed Hope’s skin against the bone creating a loss of blood supply. She is being treated with antibiotics to prevent infection.

Peeling of her skin around her snout, called sloughing, also has started and she’s being treated with hydrotherapy for that. Hope will undergo hydrotherapy for about 10 days.

Authorities said Hope is expected to be released in about three weeks to be cared for by Charlie and Kit Moncrief, on whose ranch Hope was corralled last week

Guelph raccoon dead before it was taped to traffic pole, police say

Comments Off on Guelph raccoon dead before it was taped to traffic pole, police say

“Who in their right mind would do such a stupid & gruesome stunt? It’s sick, just because the animal was probably dead when it was taped is irrelevant. Whoever did it, wanted people to be shocked by the site…who know’s what else they will do. So if you know who did this, please ring the number below! Wonder if it would be different if it were a puppy hanging there instead?” 

GUELPH— The Guelph Police are treating the case of a raccoon being taped to a city traffic light post as an animal cruelty investigation.

Raccoon case Brooke Dumouchelle, an animal control officer with the Guelph Humane Society, pulls off the tape holding up a dead raccoon to a stop-light pole at Watson and York roads on Tuesday morning. Police and Dumouchelle have no idea who taped the raccoon to the pole, or why.

The Guelph Police and Guelph Humane Society responded Tuesday to a case of a raccoon being taped to a traffic light post on the city’s east side, at the intersection of Watson Road South and York Road.

A humane society officer removed the dead animal at about 9:30 a.m. It was taken away in a black garbage bag.

“At this point, we’re not suspecting foul play,” said Deb Gray, operations manager of the Guelph Humane Society. She said the animal was likely dead before being put up on the post. These animals will put up a fight and the taping job is too clean for it to have been done while the animal was still alive, she said.

Gray estimates the animal is around five months old and does not show obvious signs as to how it died. It could have been struck by a car, she said.

“It might have been some strange little prank.”

No note or any explanation seemed to have been left with the animal. Some people who noticed the sight at first thought it was a toy stuffed animal. The raccoon was bloodied and surrounded by flies when it was removed.

The animal was taped up, with clear packing tape, more than one metre off the ground. It was bound so that its underside was against the post. Passing motorists and area business people alerted authorities to the grisly scene.

Guelph Police communications officer Const. Mike Gatto said the case began as an animal cruelty investigation, but there is not likely to be criminal charges laid if the animal was dead when it was taped to the post.

“At this point, it is believed that the animal was not hurt intentionally in any way,” he said. “However, obviously, we would like to speak to the people who decided to attach this dead animal to the pole.”

Police are asking anyone with information regarding this case to call Const. Brent Estabrooks at (519) 824-1212 ext. 7259, or to leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Texas dog struggling to survive after mouth is intentionally taped closed

Comments Off on Texas dog struggling to survive after mouth is intentionally taped closed

A dog in Weatherford, Texas is struggling to survive today. The female dog, now known as “Hope,” was discovered on Monday morning on Baker Road.

It was readily apparent that Hope was suffering.

Her tongue was swollen and hanging outside of her mouth, but she was too frightened to allow herself to be captured.

After great effort on the part of several concerned individuals and animal control, the victimized dog was captured. The severity of her injuries soon became apparent – someone had used tape to clamp her mouth shut and in the process, they left her tongue trapped outside of her mouth.

Hope’s closed muzzle and her inability to use her tongue nearly claimed her life.

Dogs do not sweat like people – instead, they use their tongues to help their body cool down. Unable to use her tongue to pant, Hope’s body temperature rose to a life-threatening 105.7 degrees.

According to Dr. Buchanan with the Bowie Drive Animal Hospital , Hope will likely lose a portion of her tongue because it was secured outside of her mouth for so long.

Hope’s injured tongue and elevated body temperature were not her only issues. The veterinarian also discovered numerous gashes on her body – enough that 100 stitches were required to suture her back together.

Right now, the Parker County Sheriff’s Office  is looking for the person responsible for this horrific case of animal abuse. Anyone with knowledge about this case is urged to call 817-594-8845 or Crime Stoppers Hotline at 817-599-5555.

Donations are being accepted by the Parker County Sheriff’s Office for Hope’s veterinary care.

Checks can be mailed to the Parker County Sheriff’s Office at 129 Hogle Street Weatherford, Texas 76086, Attn: Deputy Danie Huffman.

Anyone who wants to donate to Hope’s reward fund will need to contact Deputy Danie Huffman at 682-229-2358.

Hope’s veterinarian has indicated that she is able to eat and drink without assistance, she will survive.
