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.

BPD Investigating Puppy Set on Fire

Comments Off on BPD Investigating Puppy Set on Fire

“Why does this not surprise me…because I have seen so many innocent sentient beings; who have been treated in such a heinous despicable way! The Sxxt or Sxxt’s that did this, even if it turns out to be little rug rats…should pay dearly!”

“By that I don’t mean a slap on the wrist, I mean a punishment that will make them think twice about doing this again…sometimes the only way is a shock factor…so set the little shit that did this on fire…see how long he will last before someone kindly doused the flames.”

“Sorry if that seems a bit harsh, but crimes like this are happening everyday around the world. The only reason why… is because the Fxxxxxg Sxxt heads that do this kind of fxxxxd up shit… know nothing will be done if they are caught…so I suggest they try a different approach!!!”

Updated Oct 30, 2012 at 6:50 PM Buffalo, NY (WKBW) – A puppy, running around caught on fire, was found Monday evening in a Buffalo neighborhood.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Remarkably, that puppy is still alive — and now police are investigating this case of animal cruelty.

At just 16-weeks old, the little Jack Russel Terrier does not even have a name. However, the images show a heartbreaking life.

Burned from head-to-toe, a neighbor saw him on fire on the 200 block of Herman Street in Buffalo.

Mary Baldwin, she called 9-1-1 at first thought it was a paper on fire — and then questioned maybe a house. She says “and then I saw the little feet running and I said no that’s a dog, that’s a dog!”

Baldwin says a man across the street then smoldered the flames.

Police found the little Jack Russel Terrier in a backyard, where neighbors say there’s a whole litter of puppies.

The puppy is now recovering at the Buffalo Small Animal Hospital.

Veterinarian Dr. Rebecca Wagner says “We had to treat him with shock, fluids and certain medications to help get his blood pressure up.”

The Buffalo Police Department, Buffalo Fire Department and Buffalo Animal Control are investigating.

There is a chance the puppy had been doused in lighter fluid.

Mike DeGeorge, with the City of Buffalo, explains “When the puppy was brought here, there was the smell. Other than that I would just say it remains under investigation.”

His fur coat is charred, ears crinkled back and eyes swollen shut. Wagner explains “His eyes are completely swollen today and it’s going to be worse in the next five days or so.”

The next five to seven days will determine the little puppy’s fate.

Veterinarians do not know yet if he will make it — but they have hope.

“He was completely white and ghostlike when he came here,” Wagner says. “Now he’s a little more pinkish.”

It will be expensive for the Buffalo Animal Shelter to care for the burned puppy. No one knows his name or who he belongs to. He did not have any tags or identification.

If the puppy recovers, the shelter will put him up for adoption.

Several people have reached out to Eyewitness News asking how they can help.

The phone number for the Buffalo Small Animal Hospital is 716-852-1112.

There are no arrests or known suspects in this case. Anyone with information should call or text the Buffalo Police Tipline at 716-851-5694.

Calf Found Burned Alive on Lisbon Farm

Comments Off on Calf Found Burned Alive on Lisbon Farm

“WTF…whoever did this is either trying to settle an old score with the owner of the calf by using premeditated fear, causing harm to his livestock via killing one in such a horrific way; to let the owner know, he means business. OR, he is the SADISTIC OPPRESSOR, WHO ENJOYS INFLICTING HARM & CAUSING HIDEOUS INJURIES, to ANY SENTIENT BEING.”
“These lowlife’s are SICK & EVIL, they enjoy what they do! When the poor animal, they have abused is eventually found & the media picks up the story;  they are thrilled at the reaction, their heinous misery has caused.  And as we know from past experiences, the animal abuser, doesn’t always stop at animal abuse…he can move on to children & adults…Just keep an eye out for any unusual behaviour, especially between older siblings & the younger one’s…bully’s are clever…but not clever enough to not get caught!”

A calf was burned alive on a Lisbon farm sometime on Friday.The owner of the farm did not discover the 220 lbs. baby female cow until Sunday. The cow walked around the farm in agony for a day and a half.  Farm owner Edward Sabol discovered the tortured animalafter taking a head count of his cattle.”I found the calf in the field and it didn’t look the right colour,” Sabol said.Sabol drove the calf to a local veterinarian, who confirmed that someone poured accelerant on the animal and set it on fire.“He said it was either lighter fluid, gasoline, some kind of flammable liquid,” said Sabol.Sabol said he can’t imagine who would do such a thing, but said he’s had problems in the neighbourhood.

“I always seem to have problems with the kids with the baseball field across the street,” said Sabol.

This isn’t the first time he’s lost a cow from a vicious act of violence. Two years ago someone shot one of his other cows.

Friends who have known the family for years can’t believe they’re experiencing a similar tragedy.

“I know there’s nobody around that takes better care of their animals than what they do. I can’t imagine why somebody would do this unbelievably cruel thing,” said neighbour Jim Fraser.

After the calf was put down Sunday, Sabol reported the incident to the Columbiana Sheriff’s Office.

“I would like to see the people   , or that they could actually see what they have done to a living animal,” said Sabol.

WEST BRANDYWINE — Firefighters discovered a caged dog burned that had been burned to death Friday night in a wooded area along Route 82.

Wagontown Fire Chief Todd Ziegler was driving along the roadway at around 8 p.m. when he happened to notice what he thought was a brush fire on the side of the road. Ziegler notified fire crews who made a grisly discoveryas they extinguished the blaze.

Scene along rural road in Chester County where a caged dog was found on fire.

Ziegler recalled approaching the fire with another firefighter and said “something wasn’t right, and we requested the police department to step it up and get over here.”

Ziegler said police performed a quick search of the area to make sure no one was around as firefighters confirmed that a caged animal had been killed in the fire.

The dog, which officials described as a medium-sized pit bull-type breed, was found caged and burning about 50 feet from the road along a gravel drive. Fire crews then notified the Animal Protection Services officers from the Chester County SPCA and the Chester County Fire Marshall’s to investigate the incident.

The dog’s charred remains will be transported to the New Bolton Center for a necropsy Saturday morning, officials said.

The incident is the second in less than four months in which a dog has been found burned within a several-mile radius in Chester County.

Craig Baxter, an Animal Protection Services officer with the SPCA who investigated the incident Friday, expressed his reaction as he received another call involving a burned animal.

“When I got the initial call, I didn’t believe it,” Baxter said. “I just thought: Here we go again.”

 Rich Britton, a spokesman for the SPCA, said these types of crimes will not be tolerated in the county and urged anyone with information regarding the incident to contact authorities.

“This is the type of behaviour that could escalate and involve humans next, if it hasn’t already,” Britton said. “These kinds of people have got to be put away and prosecuted to the fullest extent.”

Investigators urge anyone with information regarding this incident to call Animal Protective Services at 610-692-6113, extension 213.

She was put to sleep on Saturday night.

Pennsylvania Horse Doused With Flammable Liquid, Set On Fire

Comments Off on Pennsylvania Horse Doused With Flammable Liquid, Set On Fire


“As the perpetrators have not been found yet, I would suggest people living around that area, to keep a close eye on their pets. Whoever did this, obviously got a kick out of seeing it suffer, they are inhumane, cold, calculated & heartless bastards; so just be aware! When caught, they need to have the maximum sentence thrown at them! I can imagine how the owners feel about this sick revolting act. Some people have horses & see them as objects for bringing home money etc., others, like me & this lady in question, see them as part of the family. I wish Northstar a speedy recovery & hope this incident doesn’t have any lasting effect on his normal behaviour!”

UNION CITY, Pa. — A horse was struggling to survive Tuesday after being doused with a flammable substance and set ablaze over the weekend.

“I don’t know what would have possessed anyone to do this. I just know they are sick. They are a sick, sick person,” Jessie Woodworth, owner of the 6-year-old gelding named Northstar, told The Huffington Post.

“It’s a person with a degenerate mind,” Woodworth’s husband, Bob, added. “It would have been much more humane if the person had shot the horse instead of making it suffer.”

The Woodworths boarded Northstar at a 60 acre ranch in Athens Township. Family members found him severely burned on Sunday morning.

“My wife and daughter found him hiding in the woods,” Bob Woodward told HuffPost. “He was completely out of it — in shock. The girls heard him whine for them. He was a mess and you could see where a liquid was poured on him and he was set on fire.”

The Marley Veterinary Clinic in Titusville is treating Northstar. The animal is being administered pain medication and antibiotics. Prescription ointments are being used to help heal the wounds.

He’s not over it by no means,” Bob Woodworth said. “He has burns all over his body. His face is burned right down to bone, his eyelashes are burned off and the hair in his ears and nostrils is gone. I don’t know how the animal survived. It’s going to be a long battle. It’s going to take him a long time to recover.

State troopers from the state police barracks in Corry are investigating. The individual or individuals responsible used an unknown accelerant to set the horse on fire, police said. No arrests have been made and no suspects have been named.

The Woodworths said they have no idea who targeted their horse.

“This is a member of our family. We raised him from birth. There is nothing this animal has done wrong to nobody,” Bob Woodworth said.

Animal cruelty is typically caused by people who are angry or have demented personalities, said Sarah Speed, Pennsylvania state director for the Humane Society of the United States.

“There have been a number of psychological studies done and we are learning that people who commit these types of crimes are typically angry and they turn to someone who is more vulnerable, like a child or an animal,” Speed told HuffPost.

The truly disturbing thing about fire-setting animal abuse is that it is one of the three strongest indicators of a future serial killer, as defined by the FBI,” Speed continued. “When a child has one or more of those psychological symptoms, there is cause for concern that they lack empathy that could result in future violent crimes.

Dog set on fire – Man arrested over animal cruelty attack in Maghaberry

Comments Off on Dog set on fire – Man arrested over animal cruelty attack in Maghaberry

“I was just about to post the original story (I’m still behind) when I saw they had arrested an animal…anybody that sets a dog on fire for their own sadistic pleasure & entertainment can’t be called human!! I hope it’s not long before they find the other one, if indeed their were 2 of them who committed this heinous attack. But, I doubt very much he will be charged & receive the maximum 51 weeks in jail; abusers rarely do! It will probably be 20 weeks & possibly a fine, or both…I know what I would like to do to the cowardly little SXXT & I’m betting I wouldn’t be the only one!”

Police investigating an attack in which a dog was set on fire in County Antrim have arrested a 21-year-old man.

A three-year-old collie dog, called Cody, suffered serious injuries after it was doused with flammable liquid and set alight in Maghaberry nine days ago.

The PSNI had appealed for information about two men who were seen with the dog on Trummery Lane, close to a quarry at about 10:00 BST on 26 August.

The man was detained on Tuesday morning on suspicion of animal cruelty.

Suspects wanted over dog set on fire in Maghaberry

Police investigating an attack on a dog in Maghaberry have issued descriptions of two people they want to question.

He described the attack as “inhumane” and said the dog is “fighting for its life”.

I was up at the north coast on Saturday and came home to a pretty horrific story of a good friend of mine who lives at the bottom of the village of Maghaberry,” he said.

“Unfortunately his dog, a wee collie called Cody, was set on fire using lighter fluid on Sunday morning.

“I think it is just vandalism of the nastiest sort. “The dog is as friendly as they come. “Hopefully the poor thing can pull through.”

Mr Ferris said the owner of the dog had two small children and that the incident was “pretty disturbing” for the whole family.

“Getting your dog set on fire is a terrible thing to wake up to on a Sunday morning,” he added.

Mr Ferris said he hoped those responsible for the attack would be caught.
