Sheffield Tortured Dog Set On Fire : Owners Found Dog Called Issac!!

Comments Off on Sheffield Tortured Dog Set On Fire : Owners Found Dog Called Issac!!

“The other day I didn’t post it on here, but I tweeted what I found on a football forum; that someone  found out who he was & apparently “he got a good pasting” (pasting means a good hiding) I did say in one of the post I did, that if the people of Sheffield found out who he was, that I wouldn’t want to be him; if they found him! Well, it sounds like they found him & gave him a taste of his own medicine! However…this is only hear say from an online forum, so please, don’t take it as the gospel truth!”

“Although I can’t help but hope it was true, & the evil bastard was indeed paid a visit, whilst out on bail; by some animal advocates with a bit of muscle!  Under the Animal Welfare Act 2006, the maximum fine for animal cruelty and welfare offences is £20,000. The maximum term of imprisonment for offences is six months. I personally think the’ jail term’ is pathetic, especially in such evil, premeditated acts like this!. Just as long as he gets the maximum & we get a picture of him, so everybody knows who he is”

 ‘SOFT as a bottle of pop, he wouldn’t harm a fly’ – this is the first picture of the little dog tortured, beaten and burned to death in Sheffield.

Tortured dog Issak

Trusting terrier Issac was snatched from a garden in the city, led into scrubland and tied to a tree before his legs were broken, he was attacked, and his body set alight.

Last night, a 28-year-old man was on bail after being arrested by police on suspicion of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal.

Today the woman caring for the pet when he was stolen sobbed to The Star of her heartbreak.

Rachelle Bannister-Hind, aged 42, wept: “Issac was nine years old but he was soft as a bottle of pop, gentle and playful like a puppy.

“He’d lick you to death rather than bite. He wouldn’t harm a fly.

“He has been part of our family for nine years – he was like a child to us.

“I am absolutely shocked at the level of violence. I didn’t think a human being could possibly do something like that.”

Rachelle, a scuba diving instructor from Arbourthorne, was looking after Issac for a friend, Andrew McNamara, while he was working away from home.

On Saturday night, she took the long-legged Staffordshire Bull Terrier with her to a friend’s party on Boundary Road, Wybourn.

“My friend had a secure garden, and Issac was running in and out of the house having the time of his life,” said Rachelle. “Everybody at the party was fussing him and he was loving it.”

But when Rachelle set off to go home, she realised Issac had disappeared.

“I panicked,” she said. “I searched the house and we went out into the streets looking for him. We searched everywhere.”

The next day, Rachelle rang Andrew in Birmingham, and he told her to contact the police.

On Monday, police released details of the horrifying discovery of a dog’s bloodied and charred body on a path off Manor Laith Road, Skye Edge – and, that night, officers confirmed the dog was missing Issac.

He had been identified by his microchip. Rachelle said: “I am absolutely gutted, and of course I feel responsible because he was in my care. Andrew is absolutely devastated.”

She thanked Star readers for helping with the police investigation and pledging reward money to catch the attacker.

Rachelle said: “We would both like to say a very big thank you to everyone, it is greatly appreciated.”

Animal lover 12-year-old Olivia Christian was one of those offering money as a reward. The schoolgirl from Mansfield pledged her £5 pocket money and told The Star: “When I heard about it I was crying all night.

“I love animals – I’ve got two hamsters, a fish and a cat. I wanted to do something to help.”

Wendy Hoyland, of Northland Road, Southey Hill, Sheffield, pledged £100.

She said: “I help look after abandoned animals myself at Thornberry Animal Sanctuary. This has broken my heart. We see animals here which have been abused. I just want them to find whoever has done this.”

Rachel Christian wrote on The Star’s Facebook page: “I hope the person responsible gets properly punished, not just a slap on the wrist.”

Darren Brackenbury-Green said: “I am completely disgusted. Unfortunately it’s a sad reality that such mindless acts of cruelty towards animals are increasingly commonplace.”

National charity Crimestoppers has also offered up to £1,000, taking the reward total to over £3,000.

Anyone with information is asked to contact South Yorkshire Police on 101.

Sheffield Man Held Over Tortured Dog’s Death

Comments Off on Sheffield Man Held Over Tortured Dog’s Death

“Lets just pray this psycho gets what he deserves; a long stay in a small room; although, I would rather he take a long walk off a short pier! However, he’s out on bail, pending investigations…so if his name & or address gets out…which I bet it does, being Sheffield… I certainly wouldn’t like to be him right now!!”

“Apparently after the police appealed for the name of the dog owner, it wasn’t long before they were found. That was probably down to the power of the internet, drawing like minded people together, on apps like Face Book & Twitter etc. Just think how slow, gaining information like that, could have been; if dependent on media like newspapers alone!! 

A man has been arrested over the death of a dog which was badly beaten, tied to a tree and set alight.

The Staffordshire bull terrier‘s body was found on a path off Manor Laith in Sheffield on Sunday.

South Yorkshire Police and the RSPCA previously said the dog would have suffered a painful death and appealed for information.

A 28-year-old Sheffield man has been arrested on suspicion of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal.

A police spokesman said the man had been bailed while inquiries continue.

“As more gruesome facts are told about the horrific death of a Staffordshire Terrier, tied to a tree & set on fire…people who live near by are expressing their shock at the incident! However, people should be racking their brains trying to remember if they ever saw a dog; matching the description in the area! This is an incident that I feel will only be solved by somebody coming forward with information!”

“If anyone knows who committed this crime, they need to speak up; ASAP! By not saying anything & trying to protect the culprit; they are incriminating themselves, and as such, are as much to blame as the person or persons who inflicted this horrific crime!  Protecting a person like this will only lead to them committing more heinous crimes; so PLEASE anyone who knows anything pertaining to this post; contact the number below! Whoever beat, then burnt this dog alive; is a very unbalanced, dangerous person, probably with psychopathic tendencies…I can not stress how important it is, that they be caught & Justice is served!!” 

SHELL-SHOCKED dad has spoken of his horror at finding the charred body of a beaten dog which had been tied to a tree, its legs broken, and set alight in Sheffield

PC Rachael Drabble and PC Matt Duffy at the scene where a dog was brutally attacked, tied to a tree and burned in Sheffield.

The bloodied remains of the tortured sandy-coloured terrier were found by Lee Booth, aged 43, who reported his horrifying discovery to the RSPCA and South Yorkshire Police. Detectives are today hunting the callous thug who attacked the dog – which officers said would have ‘suffered terribly before dying’.

The young pup was found near allotments, on a path off Manor Laith Road, Skye Edge, Sheffield.

Today father-of-one Lee told The Star: “I rang the RSPCA first of all, but because what had happened to it was criminal I called the police too.

“Its head was totally smashed in and there was blood everywhere. It had also been set on fire.

“It is heartbreaking to think how much that poor dog suffered – the scene was gruesome, there was blood splattered everywhere.

“I also saw an iron bar at the scene and I am wondering if that was used to attack the dog before it was set on fire.

“It is really worrying to think there are people out there who could do something as evil as this.

Matt Duffy, one of four dedicated Dog Legislation Officers with South Yorkshire Police, said he was ‘shocked and appalled’ by the crime.

It’s not a particularly old dog, it was light tan in colour, and it was a non-neutered male,” he said.

“We don’t know whether it was still alive when it was set on fire. Its back legs were broken, and it was tied using green plastic-coated flex, the type you might use in a garden.

“The fire had been started using lots of newspaper.

“We want to hear from anyone with information – anyone who knows of someone with a similar dog, anyone known to have inflicted cruelty on a dog in the past, anyone seen taking lots of paper into this area.

“There is a lot of anger among local people who are shocked anyone could do something so cruel.”

Geraldine Mullen, 47, who walks her own pet dog along the same path, said: “How that poor animal must have suffered does not bear thinking about.

Whoever did this needs help. If they can do this what else are they capable of? They are a danger to society.”

Police are still trying to trace the dog’s owner, and are appealing for witnesses to the attack or anyone with information to come forward.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman confirmed: “Police are appealing for information from the public after the body of a badly beaten and burned dog was found in Sheffield.

“The light-coloured Staffordshire Bull Terrier male dog is believed to have been severely beaten, before being tied to a tree and set on fire.

“Officers believe the dog suffered terribly before dying. “Police want to speak to anyone who may have seen this dog, or who may have lost a dog that fits this description.”

It is thought the attack took place some time in the last week, between last Monday, February 18, and Sunday, February 24.

An RSPCA spokeswoman said: “We are appalled to hear of such a blatant act of animal cruelty on a defenceless animal. “This poor dog is likely to have suffered a painful and horrific death.

“We would urge anyone who has any information to call the police immediately. We are happy to assist the police with this investigation if required.”

Call South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident 488 of February 24.

Crimestoppers can also be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.

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!”

Sheffield Man Banned From Keeping Horses For Five Years

Comments Off on Sheffield Man Banned From Keeping Horses For Five Years

“This cold hearted shit has got away lightly, banned for five years?? it should have been for life!!!”

Sheffield man has been banned from keeping horses for five years after an emaciated mare and foal were found in his care.

Dollar — a seven-year-old mare (pictured right and below) — and her six-month-old piebald filly foal Tweddle,

Horse as found

were found at the start of the year by World Horse Welfarefield officer Rachel Andrews.

Andrew Willoughby, 34, of Kiveton Park, Red Hill was sentenced to 200 hours of community service at Rotherham Magistrates Court on 23 October.

He was ordered to pay £500 costs and a £70 fine after pleading guilty to causing unnecessary suffering.

Mr Willoughby had originally denied ownership of the mare and entered a not guilty plea, but changed his plea to guilty before the trial took place.

Both animals were extremely thin, with lice and a possible worm burden.

Dollar was officially signed over to the care of World Horse Welfare prior to the hearing and Tweddle has now been signed over too.

“I’m very satisfied with the outcome pleased that the seriousness of the case has been highlighted,” said Rachel Andrews.

This is what food & TLC can do for horses on the brink of death

“Dollar (pictured above) and Tweddle have already improved almost beyond recognition under the care of World Horse Welfare.

The pair will remain at the charity’s Hall Farm base in Norfolk for further rehabilitation and when ready, will be re-homed to begin a new chapter of their life.”
