“WTF is wrong with these people? This is sick & this guy should pay big time for his crimes, not only against a sentient being but also against his children. GOD I hope they leave the prison doors open, just long enough for other inmates to show their disgrace & disgust at his unspeakable crime!”

According to search warrants obtained by ABC11, David Lee Carter of Benson was arrested on several counts of crimes against nature along with indecent liberties with a child.

They say Carter “will-fully and feloniously did commit the abominable and detestable crime against nature with a male canine, family pet named ‘Drake‘, (one and half year old Boxer.)”

Deputies told ABC11 they began investigating the 25 year old on Tuesday. They said Carter is charged with indecent liberties because he allegedly had sex with the dog in front of a child.

Carter was in the Johnston County jail.

Asheville Area Residents Charged With Cruelty To Horse Who Starved To Death

Comments Off on Asheville Area Residents Charged With Cruelty To Horse Who Starved To Death

“Malnourishment doesn’t happen overnight, why oh why don’t these idiots ask for help? Too much trouble like their animals, so instead just wait for them to die?? Those that knowingly starve any animal; should be severely punished, they have voices don’t they??”

ASHEVILLE — The bad economy is partly to blame for an increase in abused horses across North Carolina and the nation, a horse rescuer said Thursday.

Two people face charges in Buncombe County in the case of a horse that starved to death, according to the Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office.

Daryl Cody Dillingham, 22, and Connie Lynn Wheeler, 32, are charged with felony animal cruelty in the death of a paint mare in Barnardsville.

Both were scheduled to appear in court Thursday.

An animal control officer was called to investigate a complaint about neglect on April 18 and discovered the dead horse.

Joanie Benson, executive director of the Horse Protection Society of North Carolina, said it is common to find owners giving horses away or selling them at low cost because they can no longer afford them.

Benson has 45 horses on her farm in China Grove. Her operation runs on donations and volunteers.

The federal government, in a 2011 study, said some states reported a 60 percent increase in horse abuse cases from 2007 to 2009.

A healthy horse can cost a minimum of $300 a month and having $1,000 in reserves for vet bills is a good idea, she said.

Throw in saddles, leads, food containers, horse shoeing and dental work and the cost quickly skyrockets.

Benson said owners who are struggling should act quickly.

“Before it gets serious at some point you have to wake up and realize you can’t afford this horse and find a home for it,” she said.

In Haywood County on Thursday, Toney Martinez was scheduled for a hearing before a judge on a misdemeanor cruelty to animals charge for the death last year of a 6-year-old stallion named Bucky.

He died of a massive worm infestation, said Karen Owens president of Star Ranch, a rescue operation in Waynesville.

Bucky had never been treated for worms. He died with his head on a pillow and a volunteer beside him at her ranch.

She was hoping for a conviction.

“Something that sends a message instead of saying it doesn’t matter what you do to your horses,” she said.

Maryland Child Behavioral Specialist Placed on Leave After Being Indicted on Bestiality Charges

Comments Off on Maryland Child Behavioral Specialist Placed on Leave After Being Indicted on Bestiality Charges

Jarrettsville, Maryland — A child behavioral specialist at a public school system in Maryland was recently indicted on bestiality charges after investigators allegedly found numerous video tapes at her home capturing her engaging in sexual acts with a dog.

Stephanie Mikles, 45, was placed on leave without pay this month by the Harford County Public School District after she was indicted in April for engaging in “unnatural and perverted sex practice.” According to reports, the allegations stem from incidents occurring in August 2008, which were not discovered until late last year. There is no statute of limitations involving the crime in the state.

A complaint against Mikles regarding a separate issue led to an official investigation by the child advocacy center, which resulted in the discovery of a number of videos. The shocking videos were then removed from the woman’s home and reviewed by investigators. Harford County States Attorney Joseph Cassilly told the Baltimore Sun that the footage “took a while to go through.”

“As a result of what they found, they placed the charges,” he said, noting that he believed the sexual acts occurred on “more than one instance.”

 A grand jury then indicted Mikles of having “sexual intercourse with a dog,” according to court records and still photographs presumably taken from the videos.

Mikles was released on $5,000 bond following the indictment. She faces up to 10 years in prison and a $1,000 fine. The dog is stated to still live at the Mikles household.

Mikles has been working as a behavioral specialist for the past four years, providing strategies for helping children that struggle with abnormal behavior. She was moved to a non-instructional position late last year when the district became aware of the charges against her, then put on leave with pay following her indictment in April. This month, she was placed on leave without pay.

Moral Low Ground Ground Notes that Mikles’ case is not unique, but is rather one of a string of bestiality cases to come to light just this year.

“Last month, North Carolina animal shelter volunteer Seadon Collins Etienne Henrich of Zebulon was arrested and charged with four felony counts of crime against nature and three felony counts of disseminating obscenity for allegedly abusing dogs in his care and photographing the incidents,” it outlines. “In March, 38-year-old Derwayne Wesley Sharp of Greensboro, North Carolina was charged with raping a young girl and having sex with a dog, crimes that allegedly occurred at the same time back in 2005.”

“In February, 23-year-old Kara Vandereyk was arrested by Las Vegas police who witnessed her having sex with a pit bull in her backyard,” the report continues. “In January, Charles Ralph Horton, 57, of Cedar Springs, Michigan was charged with sodomy after allegedly raping a lab/shepherd mix on multiple occasions last year. Also in January, Milford, Delaware couple Samantha L. Golt, 24, and her 25-year-old boyfriend James P. Crow were arrested and charged with bestiality. Golt allegedly had sex with a dog while Crow is accused of filming the action.”

A scheduling conference will be held on May 20th regarding Mikles’ case as she remains under investigation.

School Employee Indicted For Having Sex With Her Dog “I added this News clip, purely for a picture of the reprobate!”

An employee of the Harford County public school system who works primarily with special needs students has been placed under suspension without pay following her indictment on a sex offense charge last month.

Sick

Stephanie Mikles, 45, of the 1500 block of North Bend Road in Jarrettsville, was indicted April 16 in Harford County Circuit Court on a charge of unnatural and perverted sex practice, according to court records.

The alleged crime, which involves an allegation of bestiality, occurred from Aug. 1 to Aug. 31, 2008, according to court documents. There is nothing in the court record that relates the charge to Mikles’ employment with the county school system.

HSUS: Meet Billy, Rescued From a Puppy Mill

Comments Off on HSUS: Meet Billy, Rescued From a Puppy Mill

“Puppy Mill dogs, are literally dying to give you a puppy!!

Please don’t get a puppy from the above, as you will be supporting the confinement of a dog, kept in a small cage for most of its adult life, with only one purpose, to have as many babies as possible!  Puppy’s that come from puppy mills can be very poorly, their parents are treated appallingly. The lack of proper food, water, sunshine, even exercise…means the parents lack the nutrients to pass to their babies. They are force  bred until they are of no more use; then they are either given away or thrown out with the trash…their owners will not pay to feed a dog that has stopped producing puppies; it’s lost income!”

“One place you can get a healthy dog from, who has had his shots etc. is a shelter…why not rescue a cute dog like Billy! They have so much to give, they just want to love & be loved; please give them a second chance, give them the gift of life!”

The Humane Society of the United States has put together an absolutely touching and wonderful video documenting the rescue of a breeding dog named “Billy” from a puppy mill in North Carolina.

“He had been locked in that cage for so long, the bars had rusted shut—but his life changed when his rescuer, Adam, pried the bars open and gave him a second chance,” the organization says.

Bill’s story is part of the HSUS’s “Be a Hero” holiday campaign, with a goal of raising $1.5M to help other animals like Billy escape the horrors of puppy mills

Hidden Camera: Graphic Video: Shocking Truth Behind Butterball Thanksgiving Turkey

Comments Off on Hidden Camera: Graphic Video: Shocking Truth Behind Butterball Thanksgiving Turkey

“I know I’m late with this as Thanks Giving has past, sorry, but I’m still playing catch up, so think of this as your Christmas turkey instead! It’s kind of irrelevant which meal it’s for, as they are still horrifically abused by sadistic workers; who have no interest in the animals feelings or well-being. For our Christmas dinner we still have everything, only it’s Quorn & not meat, i.e sausages  meatballs, bacon strips, Quorn chicken fillets. If anyone eats at my house they eat Quorn & they are quite surprised by it, it’s the flavouring & spices you use that bring Quorn to life. Put it another way, what ever meat you eat, I can find a Quorn alternative; going vegetarian isn’t hard at all these days, there is so much to choose from. Several years ago; I looked like a chick pea!!

With Thanksgiving looming around the corner, an animal rights group has levied charges of animal abuse against Butterball, LLC, the country’s largest producer of fresh and frozen turkeys.

Graphic – Viewer Discretion Advised

Published on 13 Nov 2012 by 

The allegations, from the Los Angeles-based animal advocacy organization Mercy for Animals, stem from undercover video shot at four Butterball turkey farms in North Carolina. The graphic video, which the group has posted at ButterballAbuse.com, shows the birds being grabbed by the necks, kicked, thrown and general mishandled. According to website, the organization also found “birds suffering from serious untreated illnesses and injuries, including open sores, infections, and broken bones.”

“Consumers have a right to know how turkeys are treated at Butterball, before they end up as their Thanksgiving dinner,” Matt Rice, director of the investigation for Mercy for Animals, said in a statement to the media. “And I think that most people care about animals, even animals that are raised and killed for food.”

Mercy for Animals documented similar abuse at a Butterball turkey semen collection facility in North Carolina in 2011. That investigation resulted in felony and misdemeanor animal cruelty charges against five Butterball employees, two of whom have since pled guilty. A representative of the North Carolina Department of Agriculture also pled guilty to charges of obstruction of justice after leaking information about the investigation to Butterball.

The organization says it has taken its footage to law-enforcement officials, who are investigating.

Butterball released a statement to the media, saying it has a zero-tolerance policy for animal abuse will take any allegations seriously. Butterball also said it has already suspended the employees shown in the Mercy for Animals video while it investigates if the employees should be fired. “Any employee found to have violated our animal care and well-being guidelines, as well as any employee who witnessed abuse and failed to report it, will be terminated,” the statement read. “When we learn of any instances of animal mistreatment, we take immediate corrective action to suspend workers involved, conduct a swift investigation and terminate their employment with the company. Animal care and well-being is central to the operations of our company, and we remain committed to the ethical and responsible care of our turkey flocks.”

NBC News talked to industry analyst Phil Lempert, who is also known as the “Supermarket Guru,” who said consumers may decide to choose a different brand of turkey if they are aware of the allegations against Butterball. “We have seen a consumer and industry move to more humane treatment of chickens, hogs and cattle and now turkeys,” he said. “This Thanksgiving shoppers will be looking at prices and the credibility of the brand that sells them.

In a blog post, Mercy for Animals offered a series of tips and actions for cruelty-free Thanksgiving celebrations, many of which focus on having a vegetarian holiday meal.

64 Wolves Killed In Opening Days of Hunt: Protect Red Wolves

Comments Off on 64 Wolves Killed In Opening Days of Hunt: Protect Red Wolves

Duluth, Minn. — Minnesota wolf hunters have killed 64 wolves as of 8 p.m. Monday in the first weekend of the state’s first regulated wolf hunt.

The DNR set a quota of 200 wolves for this first season, which runs concurrently with the deer rifle-hunting season. The opening weekend harvest is in line with the agency’s expectations, said DNR wolf expert Dan Stark.

“Typically about 50 percent of the harvest occurs the first weekend, and that’s when most of the hunters are out there,” Stark said. “We aren’t going to know exactly until the end of the season, but it’s likely to track that pattern.”

The number of wolves killed so far in Minnesota is higher than at the beginning of other states’ hunts, Stark said. He also said the agency will survey hunters about their methods and how long they hunted. That information will be used to make any needed changes to next year’s hunt.

At the end of Monday, the DNR closed the east-central wolf hunting zone around Lake Mille Lacs where eight of the zone’s allotted nine wolves were killed over the weekend. Hunters will be able to kill another 200 wolves during a second season beginning at the end of the November. That season will include trappers as well as hunters.

Fewer than 100 Wild Red Wolves Remain in the world

The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission recently approved a temporary state rule that allows the hunting of coyotes at night using spotlights, including in the area inhabited by the only wild population of red wolves, one of the world’s most endangered animals.

Take action now! Sign our petition calling on the commission to halt all coyote hunting — day or night — within the red wolf recovery area.

Red wolves once roamed most of the Southeastern United States, but harsh predator control programs and habitat loss resulted in their near elimination — and in 1980 red wolves were declared extinct in the wild.

After a small population of captive red wolves was reintroduced into the eastern part of North Carolina, the species slowly began to repopulate and today about 100 red wolves have regained a fragile foothold in the wild.

Red wolves and coyotes are similar in size, coats and coloring, so red wolves are frequently mistaken for coyotes, even in daylight. In nighttime conditions it is nearly impossible to tell them apart.

Please take this urgent action today!

At least two red wolves have already been killed within the eastern North Carolina area designated for red wolf recovery. Defenders of Wildlife has joined two other conservation organizations to file suit in the Superior Court of Wake County, North Carolina to prevent nighttime coyote hunting throughout North Carolina, including within the red wolf recovery area.

The groups have also put the North Carolina Wildlife Commission on notice that we will seek a federal enforcement action unless it stops all coyote hunting — daytime or nighttime — in the area where these critically endangered wolves live.

That’s why we need supporters like you to speak out on behalf of these wolves and tell the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission to halt all coyote hunting in the red wolf recovery area!

The red wolf only exists in the state of North Carolina, and with a population so small and fragile, an increase in red wolf shooting deaths could mean they’ll never recover

Man charged after shooting three horses, all three died

Comments Off on Man charged after shooting three horses, all three died

 

 

“This POS better get the maximum punishment for this, he purposefully & intentionally shot those horses…I believe out of jealousy because the horses belong to Darnell Kurney.  They say Kurney is the ex-boyfriend of Kincy’s ex-wife. (A lot is copyright so can’t just post, see the link below) WTF…God I am so angry right now, I feel like throwing this laptop across the room…but that would be silly because then I wouldn’t be able to retrieve it, to say Kincy is a $*^(% {‘#£r F=-#~|r.  I will try to keep you updated on this, that’s if I have a keyboard left! 

HUBERT, NC (WCTI) — Deputies say a man shot three horses, killing one of them. The other two were later euthanized.

Keith Kincy has been arrested and now faces gun and animal cruelty charges.

 

Investigators say the three horses were shot about four o’clock Friday morning at a home located on Hubert Blvd in Onslow County. One of those horses died at the scene, according to deputies.

A veterinarian checked the injuries of the two horses that had initially survived the shooting, but just before 10 a.m. Friday, recommended that they be euthanized.

 

“It just kills me, because I love animals,” said Amber Carter, who works near the home and has seen the horses on many occasions.

“Animals deserve a lot of respect, just like people. They need to be treated right. They don’t need to be hurt. They don’t need to be shot.”
