Published on 3 Jan 2013 – By newman forbedder

Pit bull puppy found on new year’s day someone had put in a red plastic container and set her on fire near Calvados Ave. and Oakmont St.Sacramento CA.

On New Year‘s Eve, or New Year’s day, someone intentionally set fire to a pit-bull puppy in Sacramento, Calif.

On Friday, RedRover, a nonprofit animal protection organization, announced that a $2,500 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for the cruel act.

The female, four-month-old puppy was discovered near Calvados Ave. and Oakmont St., near Del Paso Blvd. and Arden Way.

It appeared that the puppy had been confined in a red plastic container and doused with accelerant before being set aflame.

The fire left the puppy with severe burns over her entire body and bits of the plastic container had melted into her feet and hindquarters.

Though animal control rushed her to a veterinarian, the puppy’s injuries were so severe that humane euthanasia was deemed necessary.

I thought I’d seen it all, but this level of deliberate cruelty tops anything I’ve seen before,”

“Someone out there knows what happened. This dog deserves justice and we need the community’s help to find the dangerous person who did this.”

RedRover President and CEO, Nicole Forsyth is hopeful that the reward will help the authorities find whoever is responsible, stating:

We hope our reward will encourage someone who knows more about this horrifying act to come forward with information that could lead to an arrest,”

“Violence toward animals is often a precursor to violence toward people, so local residents have a stake in seeing that whoever committed this sick and disturbing act is punished to the full extent of the law.”

Anyone with tips or information is asked to phone: Officer Dan Torres at  916.808.5855.

ASPCA Endorses New Legislation to Prohibit Cruel Practice of Horse Soring

Comments Off on ASPCA Endorses New Legislation to Prohibit Cruel Practice of Horse Soring

NEW YORK, SEPT. 13, 2012 — H.R. 6388 strengthens Horse Protection Act to better protect horses

The ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) today applauds Reps. Ed Whitfield (R-KY) and Steve Cohen (D-TN) for introducing legislation to amend the federal Horse Protection Act of 1970 to eradicate the abusive practice of horse soring. H.R. 6388 will enhance the U.S. Department of Agriculture‘s (USDA) ability to enforce the Horse Protection Act by eliminating self-policing inspection practices, increasing penalties, and designating additional soring practices illegal.

Currently illegal under the Horse Protection Act, soring involves using painful chemicals and devices to inflict pain in horses to compel an exaggerated show-ring gait so desirable in the multimillion-dollar Tennessee Walking Horse industry.

Soring is a particularly cruel form of abuse as the horses are forced to endure years of chronic pain throughout their show career,” said Nancy Perry, senior vice president of ASPCA Government Relations. “The Horse Protection Act was specifically enacted in 1970 to prohibit this abhorrent practice, and yet it continues to pervade the gaited horse industry four decades later. We thank Representatives Whitfield, Cohen, Schakowsky, and Moran for introducing legislation to protect these gentle animals and bring an end to horse soring.”

“Far too often, those involved in showing the Tennessee Walking Horse have turned a blind eye to abusive trainers, or when they do take action, the penalties are so minor, it does nothing to prevent these barbaric acts,” said. Rep. Whitfield.  “This amendment does not cost the federal government any additional money and is essential in helping to put an end to the practice of soring Tennessee Walking Horses by abusive trainers.

“In Tennessee, soring horses is illegal and unacceptable,” said Rep. Cohen. “Those responsible for abusing these horses should be punished severely and banned from the sport.  How we treat animals is a direct reflection of our character, both as individuals and a nation.   There is no ribbon, no prize nor championship worth the price of one’s humanity.”

The training method known as “soring” involves the deliberate application of pain-causing chemicals, cuts or foreign objects to a horse’s limbs or hoof pads to cause such agony to the animal’s front limbs that any contact with the ground forces the horse to fling its leg back up into the air.  Additionally, trainers may attempt to mask soring by “stewarding” Tennessee Walking Horses, which conditions the horses to remain still by beating, torturing or burning them.

In 2010, the USDA Office of Inspector General (OIG) conducted an audit of the horse protection program, finding that trainers in the industry often go to great lengths to evade detection rather than comply with federal law and train their horses using humane methods. The OIG made several recommendations, including stiffer penalties and abolishing the self-policing practices currently allowed, where the Horse Industry Organizations are able to assign their own inspectors to horse shows. 

H.R. 6388 will eliminate the current self-policing practices by requiring the USDA to assign a licensed inspector to a horse show. Second, it will prohibit the use of action devices on the various horse breeds that have frequently been the victims of soring.  Action devices, such as chains that rub up and down an already sore leg, intensify the horse’s pain when it moves, so that the horse quickly jolts up its leg.  Lastly, the amendment increases the penalties on an individual caught soring a horse.

“It doesn’t matter how many times I watch this video, it always makes me cry! To purposely inflict pain on an animal,  just to win a prize is sickening; its legal abuse, just like rodeos! Why hasn’t it been stopped before now, they know it’s still happening, the majority of punters know it happens…but it all boils down to money, & when animals are involved, it is they, who always pay the highest price! Corrupt judges, vets, trainers, handlers…from the top down, their all in on it…they are nothing but sad, evil greedy bxxxxxd’s!! (excuse my French).

“My horse went lame over the weekend…my daughter brought back video of her…I haven’t stopped crying since viewing it! Watching her try to walk on 3 legs, bless, she must have been in agony…it was bloody heartbreaking to see; I felt so useless not being able to get to her due to my usual pain! Anyhow, vet thinks she pulled her stifle muscle, so she is on box rest with medication for pain & swelling, which is gradually getting better daily…got vets bill yesterday… £328…I knew it would be high because it was an emergency call out, but it’s not about the money, as long as she will soon feel better & be back to her old cantankerous way’s…I don’t care how much it will cost! 

“That’s what you do when you love your animals, I would sell the clothes off my back if need be, to pay for further treatment for her! Yet some turds in this industry purposely torture their horses, so they step higher, out of pain… just for a bloody rosette or tin cup!! They shouldn’t be anywhere near horses, or other animals for that matter…because they clearly don’t give 2 tits about them or their welfare, their only in it for the money they will make, out of the animals they abuse! So don’t ever believe them when they say ‘Oh, I just love my horse, he’s the best’… because their bloody lying!”

11-Yr-Old Charged With Beating Puppy To Death Out Of Spite

Comments Off on 11-Yr-Old Charged With Beating Puppy To Death Out Of Spite

An 11-year-old upstate girl has been charged with two felonies for allegedly beating a 13-week-old puppy to death

The girl, whose name hasn’t been released, is accused of repeatedly slamming her temporary foster mother‘s small Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy against a floor and bed post until it was dead.And according to authorities, she did so because her foster mom wouldn’t take her somewhere.

For Ref. Only

“The girl asked to go to someplace. The foster mother said no,” Lake George Trooper Mark Cepiel told the Times-Union.

“Later on, the girl caused injuries to the dog and the dog died.” The girl, who is from Saratoga Springs, has been charged with aggravated cruelty to animals and criminal mischief for the incident.

The little girl had been placed in overnight foster care in Lake George Sunday night when the incident occurred. Cathy Cloutier, executive director of the SPCA of Upstate New York, said that it’s rare to see such a violent act from a young child: “This is definitely a violent case,” she told YNN Hudson Valley. “The correlation between domestic violence and animal abuse is a known fact.”

Kitten Abuse Case Appalls Animal Lovers

Comments Off on Kitten Abuse Case Appalls Animal Lovers

“OMG…Writing through tears, again…What possess a child to do something like this? Are they seeing abusive treatment at home? Is it peer pressure? Is it a loss of self esteem due to bad parenting? I don’t know, but somebody needs to find out before it’s too late! Whatever it is, those kids new what they were doing, if the police can’t find the kid who admits to it, then all those present, should pay the consequences of their spiteful actions! R.I.P. little guy!!”

Animal control officers in Jackson believe a group of middle school-age kids are the ones who abused a stray kitten inside a Jackson mobile home park Friday night.

They said the kitten was hurt so badly, they had to euthanize it.

Lupe Morales said she is terrified of letting her dogs out because she is afraid someone might hurt them.

“I have three dogs and I would feel really bad if someone did anything to mine,” Morales said.

And that is what happened Friday night, when animal control workers said a Rolling Acres Mobile Estates resident saw several 10 to 12-year-olds abusing a four-week-old stray kitten.

“The report that we got from the caller was they were throwing the cat in the air, and letting it fall to the ground repeatedly,” said Jackson Animal Control Officer Whitney Owen.

Jackson animal control officers said they took the kitten to a local veterinarian to assess his injuries, but the vet had to put him down.

According to officers, the last time they had to euthanize an animal from something like this was in 2010. Animal control said it gets two to three animal abuse calls a month.

“We have a pretty serious cat overpopulation issue in that area [Rolling Acres] and so strays are a daily problem,” Owen said. Workers said they get so many calls from there, that they have to put out live traps, but they only help for so long.

“With such a high volume of people, you’ve got a lot of pets, and a lot of cats, and you know, that one cat’s great grandmother may have an owner, but since she had a litter of kittens, and then that litter of kittens has had kittens, nobody owns them at this point. Several people feed them, but nobody claims ownership,” Owen said.

Morales said she is not surprised after hearing about the kitten abuse, but still she is saddened at what happened. “They should have to pay for what they did because that was an animal that they hurt,” she said.

Animal control officers told 7 Eyewitness News they seized two other kittens that are being cared for by a veterinarian until they can be adopted.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Jackson Animal Control at (731) 425-8545, or the Jackson Police Department at (731) 425-8400.

Video & News Link:- (Sorry but since Vodpod merged with Lockerz, it’s not easy to attach videos, basically because the new program we have to use is crap!.) 

“The face book link where I found the picture, has this to say…”

This 4 week old male kitten was tortured (thrown against a wall which lead to one of its eyes exploding, they attempted to drown it 3 times in motor oil, beat it with sticks) the police were called and the kitten was seized to be humanely put to sleep.

No one would step up to say exactly who the childeren were…..all that was disclosed was that it was 2 boys and 2 girls of Hispanic decent between the ages of 10-12 years old. RIP sweet kitten.

Please keep your eyes and ears open people you if you even think an animal is being abused call your local PD or ACO…….we are the only help these innocent animals have!! Two other kittens were found and seized along this one and are in custody with Barn Cats Rescue to be vetted and then will be available for adoption. All donations are appreciated and all adopters are welcome.

“The kids that did this,  will probably be the animal & human abusers of the future, unless it’s corrected now! At 10 years of age a child knows right from wrong, so they knew they were causing it pain! They need to pay for this, some how! It’s hard due to their ages but they need to suffer the consequences of their heinous actions now!”

RSPCA seeks witnesses to a brutal dog beating in Dover

Comments Off on RSPCA seeks witnesses to a brutal dog beating in Dover

“Somebody knows who did this, why are they protecting them…they could do the same to a human, so open your mouth before it’s too late!”

The RSPCA is asking for witnesses who may have seen someone beating a Jack Russell
terrier in the head with a sharp implement on the Friday night or Saturday morning of the
Diamond Jubilee weekend in Dover.

The dog suffered fatal injuries after he was hit on the forehead causing a hole in his skull and a
large amount of trauma around the wound.

He was found by local dog walkers around 8am on Saturday 2 June on the footpath at the
junction of Bunkers Hill Road and Hillside Road.

They heard the Jack Russell crying in pain and found him cowering in the undergrowth. He
was in severe shock, shivering uncontrollably and could have been there all night.

He was taken straight to a vet who decided to put him to sleep because of his injuries.
RSPCA Inspector Julia Fuller said: “We don’t know what the weapon was, as it wasn’t found,
but it caused a clean hole in the head so it may have been something like a stiletto shoe, a
screwdriver or a piece of wood with a nail in the end.

“Two bloodstained patches of grass were found on the footpath about 5 metres away from
where the dog was hiding.

“This was a brutal beating and we are appealing for any information which might lead us to the person who did this or the dog’s owner.”

The Jack Russell was an entire male with a white coat and patches of tan fur on its rump and
the tops of its ears. He was not microchipped.

If you have any information about the person who carried out this attack please contact our
Cruelty Line on 0300 1234 999 and leave a message for Inspector Fuller.

Jacksonville Humane Society offers reward for culprit who sliced dog along spine

Comments Off on Jacksonville Humane Society offers reward for culprit who sliced dog along spine

“I know what I would do to the person or persons who did this…and if it’s kids that did it, then it’s time to act tough…no more slapt wrist’s…anyone capable of doing this to an animal is capable of doing it to a child!!”


The Jacksonville Humane Society is offering a $500 reward for the arrest and conviction of whoever brutally slashed a dog several times with a sharp object.

The group is also starting a fund to help pay for the medical care of the dog, who the staff has named Bo.

Bo after surgery.

On Friday, residents of a development in Northwest Jacksonville found the dog covered in blood with life-threatening injuries across his body. They brought him to the Humane Society’s Community Animal Hospital, where veterinarians operated to close the wounds.

“There’s no question he would have died had they not intervened and gotten him the care he needed,” said Denise Deisler, JHS executive director.

One of the gashes was 4 inches long.

“Bo was very lucky that he didn’t have any neurological damage because he was cut all the way down to the spinal column,” said Dr. Christian Broadhurst, JHS’ medical director. “Bo lost a lot of blood from at least 10 separate, intentional cuts, but he is a trooper and pulled through surgery with flying colors.”

The city of Jacksonville’s Animal Care and Protective Services sent a cruelty investigator to examine the dog and investigate the case, but the attacker has not been identified.

“We hope offering a reward will help find the person who brutally attacked poor Bo,” Deisler said. “Bo is an incredibly sweet dog; it’s difficult to understand such a vicious act on one so innocent. We are starting a fund to help cover the costs of Bo’s care, which will continue to rise as he heals.”

“It’s sad we should be frightened that there are people out there walking the streets that would be so cruel and so brutal to a precious animal so helpless and innocent that’s not able to defend himself,” Deisler added. “That’s the kind of people we should be worried about. We don’t want them around our kids, our neighbors or our animals.”

Bo already has a wating list of folks who want to adopt him, so Deisler said he has a much better road ahead.

“He’ll live a happy, healthy life, which is exactly what he deserves, and I hope the people that hurt him get exactly what they deserve as well.”

Anyone with information about Bo’s attack is asked to call Animal Care and Protective services at 904-630-CITY. To donate to Bo’s Fund, visit or call 904-725-8766.
