“WTF…thought I had seen it all; it appears not! Evil, sadistic animal abusing bxxxxxd’s will always walk amongst us, committing their heinous cruel animal attacks; because they are sick POS that know they can get away with it! If caught, they know they will only receive a petty punishment; which will not deter them from abusing again!! ANIMAL WELFARE & ABUSE LAWS MUST BECOME STRICTER WITH MORE SEVERE CONSEQUENCES FOR THOSE THAT ABUSE; I would like to think that harsher punishments, would at the very least, scare first time or younger offenders, enough to hopefully stop them from abusing animals ever again!!”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. –

Animal control officers are investigating after two small dogs were found covered with blue plumber’s glue and left for dead in Nashville. 

This is downright Animal Abuse; those who did this need locking up!!

The female Chihuahuas were found Wednesday by the landlord of an abandoned home on 10th Avenue North.

The dogs had been painted all over with the glue, which eventually hardened and left the animals helpless.

Dottie Dively, the staff veterinarian at Metro Animal Control, said it could be weeks before all the glue comes off.

“We have been successful in shaving some of it,” Dively said. “We may have to shave some more under sedation.”

Divey added since being found, the dogs have been named Sapphire and Opal.

“It fits, because they truly are gems and they will be beautiful again,” she said.

Cruelty investigator Billy Biggs wasn’t shy in expressing how badly he’d like to catch those responsible.

“You go from being sad to being mad,” said Biggs. “There’s no reason to do this to an animal.”

Investigators say it’s possible it was juveniles who committed the crime.

Those responsible could face a charge of aggravated animal cruelty, which is a felony.

It will be at least four to six weeks before the dogs will be available for adoption.

Owner Charged After Over 20 Animals Seized From Home

NASHVILLE, Mich — A woman was arrested after Barry County Deputies investigated a possible animal abuse or neglect case.

Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf said his animal control officers foundhorses and 17 cats in need of desperate help.

Marl Steinbach

The animals were taken into police custody and the owner, 64-year-old Marl Steinbach, was taken to jail.

FOX 17 has learned this isn’t the first time, Steinbach has been charged with animal cruelty.

Annie Meek is Steinbach’s neighbour on Morgan Street in Nashville, Michigan.

Whenever Meek left her home she passed by the horses kept in Steinbach pasture.

“The were getting worse and worse and worse,” she said of the horses she saw from the road. “One of the mares had all her ribs showing, her spine was really bad, you could see her hips, her backbone.”

At first Meek said she tried to help the animals herself, “We’d pick a lot of grass and feed it to it and them some hay that was sitting there.”

Then Meek said she tried to help the owner, “I said maybe you should surrender some of them.  And she said no.  And it went around and then when they came and took them away she said, she should have listened to me.”

Meek called the Barry County Sheriff’s Department to report what she said was animal neglect.

With the help of animal control, 17 cats and 7 horses were taken from the property and Steinbach was arrested.

Sheriff Leaf said he knows that people are going to want to help these animals but adds they are now in his control.

Sheriff Leaf said, “They are under veterinarian care.  And they are evidence of a crime.  So we don’t want people to come up and get involved that way.”

A Look at Steinbach’s criminal history shows an arrest in 2003 for cruelty to animals.  Neighbors say that charge also involved multiple horses.

Meek said the decision to call the sheriff’s department came down to saving lives.

I felt bad for Marl, but those horses come first,” she said.
