mr-magooVANCOUVER, WA – A couple found their small dog dead and skinned in the back yard of their home Sunday morning.

John Gragg and his girlfriend, Susanne Baumann, said they let their Lhasa Apso and Pomeranian out to play on their six acres of fenced-in property. When they called the dogs in two hours later, only the Pomeranian returned.

The couple found the other dog, “Mr. Magoo,” dead and skinned near the back fence. The fur on his torso and upper legs had been cut off in knife-straight lines.

“It’s perfectly square,” said Gragg. “It looks like something was stuck in the side of the animal which could have been a knife or a shot to put the dog to sleep. It looked very professional.”

The couple took the dog to the vet who confirmed the injuries were “clearly” caused by a human. Gragg said he contacted the Clark County Sheriff’s office, but said deputies initially refused to investigate because the victim wasn’t human.

That changed on Tuesday when the Sheriff’s Office admitted they should have responded that day as animal cruelty is a crime and it’s law enforcement’s responsibility to investigate.…

dog teethJACKSONVILLE, FL – An 83-year-old man was fatally mauled by four dogs on Friday in an attack that was so brutal that witnesses say the dogs ripped the man’s legs off.

Michael Downing was found dead in the backyard of a residence next to the apartment complex where he lived. Investigators aren’t sure how Downing got into the backyard, but think he may have been pulled under a fence.

Downing, who had recently suffered a stroke, was very frail and was unable to defend himself from the four dogs — a Rottweiler, and three mixed breeds consisting of German shepherd, Rottweiler, and Chow Chow.

One witness said the dogs treated the elderly man like a rag doll, ripping off his legs and tearing flesh from his head and arms.

“By far it’s probably the worst thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” said the witness. “There was only 30 percent left of his body probably.”

Neighbors who live in the apartment complex say the dogs bother anyone who takes their trash to the dumpsters next to the fence.…

sharpitFRESNO, CA -A 3-day-old baby was mauled to death by two family dogs after being left unattended on a couch.

According to reports, the girl’s 30-year-old mother left the baby girl on a couch for only a few seconds while she went to use the bathroom.

It was at this time that the two dogs, believed to be Shar Pei-pit bull mixes, came into the home through an open door and attacked the baby. The infant was rushed to the Community Regional Medical Center where she was later died.

The woman told police the dogs belonged to her brother and that she thought they were chained up outside when she left the door open because it was hot. She also informed police that one of the dogs is aggressive.

Sgt. Dan Macias said that at this point the baby’s death seemed like an unfortunate accident, but that the investigation is ongoing and that charges haven’t been ruled out.

The dogs are currently in the custody of the Central California Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals where they will both be euthanized.…

Anita ParkerLAWRENCE COUNTY, AL – The details in this article couldn’t get more Alabama if it tried. A woman is in jail after she killed her husband’s puppy so she could fake a miscarriage.

Police say 43-year-old Anita Parker had been faking a pregnancy for the last seven months, going as far as pretending to go to doctor’s appointments and sending her husband ultrasounds of the baby’s progress.

“I guess she pushed her belly out all the time, because she looked like she was,” said Johnny Parker.

Parker knew that her ruse was going to need an end-game, so she decided she would simply fake a miscarriage. When her husband came home on Wednesday, he found his wife on the bed covered in blood, along with some kind of body tissue.

She claimed she had a miscarriage and had flushed the stillborn down the toilet. The couple went to the hospital where doctors pulled him to the side and informed him that his wife had never been pregnant so there was no way she had a miscarriage.…

Patrick ThompsonGOODYEAR, AZ – A father of four was arrested after he sacrificed the family dog because he didn’t agree with his 17-year-old daughter’s T-shirt.

According to reports, 42-year-old Patrick Thompson became upset with a shirt that his teen daughter was wearing because he felt it was Satanic.

Thompson, the owner of Raging Cajun Smoking Barbecue, instructed his daughter to take off the shirt and bring it to a traveling BBQ trailer he had parked outside the home.

After burning the shirt in the smoker, Thompson instructed his family that God had commanded he now sacrifice a male.

Since God didn’t specify what species of male needed to be sacrificed, and Thompson didn’t want to sacrifice himself or his 6-year-old son, he decided to sacrifice the family’s 15 pound poodle.

As his family pleaded with him not to harm the dog, Thompson broke the dog’s neck. But this wasn’t to God’s satisfaction, Thompson would later tell police. The dog needed to be put in a “lake of fire.” That’s when he put the dog in the smoker.…

Not These Pit Bulls IdiotCHARLOTTE, NC — Police say 86-year-old Bessie Flowers was mauled to death by her daughter’s two pit bulls after she tripped in fell inside their home.

In the recently released 911 call, Flowers’ daughter can be heard saying “This is an emergency. My dogs attacked and really hurt her. Please come!”

When police arrived at the home, Flowers was dead on the living room floor. She had suffered bites to her head and neck area, and had lost a significant amount of blood.

According to police, Flowers slipped or tripped onto a dog bed. The family’s two pit bulls went over and apparently started playing with her. This playing turned aggressive and then escalated into a full-blown attack.

Flowers’ daughter was eventually able to get the dogs off of her mother and call 911, but it was too late for Flowers.

Flowers’ daughters reportedly refused to sign the dogs over to Animal Care and Control to be held during the investigation into Flowers’ death, so animal control officers seized the dogs.…

Miranda JohnsNAPLES, FL – Police have arrested 21-year-old Miranda Johns after she allegedly made her friends and family proud by recording herself sucking on a couple of dog dicks.

According to reports, police were initially investigating a sexual battery case involving Johns and her boyfriend, Kurtz Villavicencio.

When police interviewed Villavicencio, he denied assaulting Johns and produced a cell phone video she had sent him.

In the video, Johns could be seen engaging in oral sex with two pet dogs. She also texted her boyfriend images of the encounter, and the two talked about her having sex with a yet a third dog.

Instead of arresting Villavicencio, police arrested Johns on three counts of engaging in sexual conduct with an animal. She was placed in the Collier County Jail but later released after posting her $6,000 bond.

Don’t look so down, Johns. So now everyone knows you enjoy some red rocket. Hopefully you can find some solace knowing you’re not the only one who got busted sucking on it.

Christie HowellKEMP, TX – A couple have been charged after they allegedly tied a boy’s genitals and waterboarded him after he admitted to inappropriately touching the family dog.

On February 3, officials at the school the victim attends called Child Protective Services to report they suspected the boy was being abused.

According to an affidavit, the boy is described as being under 14-years-old and with special needs. When interviewed by law enforcement, he told them that his mom and her boyfriend had punished him after he had “put his finger inside the family dog’s butt.”

The boy didn’t get caught doing this, mind you; he did it and then told his mother’s boyfriend, 45-year-old Casey Shackleford, what he did because he wanted to “do the right thing.”

In response to this,  Shackleford allegedly grabbed the boy by the hair, pinned him down, and instructed the boy’s mother, 40-year-old Christi Howell, to pour cold water over the boy’s face as he held a towel over it.

After they were done, Shackleford and Howell tied a rope around the boy’s genitals and around his neck. …

Tyler Griffin-HustonLINDA, CA – Tyler Hudson was mauled to death after his sister left the 9-year-old home alone with her three pit bulls.

Alexandria Griffin-Heady, 24, left for work for a few hours on Sunday, leaving Hudson alone with her three pit bulls she has raised since they were puppies. When she returned home, she found her dogs had mauled her brother to death.

It’s a sad end for a boy who hadn’t had such a great life to begin with. After his mother died of a drug overdose in 2011, he was bounced around foster homes until his sister began the complicated ordeal of adopting her brother.

At the time of his death, Griffin-Heady had been approved for weekend visits. She recently made a post on Facebook about how grateful she was that she may get custody of Hudson.

“I get to raise him and shape him into an amazing man. God wouldn’t have made such an amazing boy just to be ordinary. In my life during all the bad I always wondered why I was here,” she wrote.…

Brandi ChinFAIRFIELD, CA – Humane Animal Services of Solano County and the Fairfield Police Department are looking for Brandi Chin after surveillance footage captured her throwing her dog during an argument with her boyfriend.

The video shows Chin carrying a pug, named Ben, by the leg before throwing it at her boyfriend in a parking lot. The roommate of Chin’s boyfriend said the incident happened during an argument between the couple, and that she and others tried taking Ben away from Chin but were unable to.

Police got involved after video of the animal abuse was posted to Facebook on Dec 19. They are currently looking for Chin, who they believe still has Ben, but feel she is in hiding.

“We are currently looking for her at this time. She is, from what I understand, hiding from us,” said Sergeant Michael Ramirez with Solano’s Humane Animal Services . “She was recently seen walking down a business district in Fairfield, and she apparently had the dog by the tail and she was swinging it around.”

Ramirez believes Chin is hiding in the Vallejo area, and hopes the public will help them find her to face animal cruelty charges and to end the Ben’s torture.…

Tyson KurkowskiBRECKENRIDGE, TX – Police have arrested 19-year-old Tyson Kurkowski after they say the teen strangled his roommate’s dog with an extension cord.

On Dec. 7, some kids found a suitcase in a creek that contained a beagle mix that looked to have been strangled to death with an extension cord.

With the help of the community, police quickly identified Kurkowski as the culprit and charge him with cruelty to non-livestock animals.

Breckenridge Police Chief Larry Mahan said the dog belonged to Kurkowski’s roommate, and that Kurkowski strangled it while he was out of town.

“I can’t see why anyone could do that,” said Mahan. “If a dog stays at my house two days, it’s part of the family. It just floors me that anyone could treat an animal this way.”

Kurkowski is currently in the Stephens County Jail on a $10,000 bond and facing a possible two years in prison if convicted.

Kurkowski is no stranger to police. According to Mahan, the teen has been arrested 16 times in the last year on multiple charges that include drugs, a stolen vehicle and criminal mischief.…

Josefina SolisPRINCE GEORGE COUNTY, VA – Josefina Solis will spend six months in jail after she allowed fleas to kill her dog.

Prince George Animal Control reported to the Country Aire mobile home park in September, after a concerned resident called about Solis’ dog that had been outside crying for almost eight hours.

The neighbor, Amanda Hios, said that when she went to check on the adult dog named Golden, she could see that he was totally covered in fleas.

When the reporting Animal Control officer checked on Golden, she found a dog that was in serious trouble and was immediately covered in fleas herself while trying to help the dog.

“The dog was completely unresponsive. He was breathing shallowly. She could see the dog was in dire straights,” said Prince George County Animal Control supervisor Job Greene. “She picked the dog up, wrapped it in a blanket and drove him to Disputanta Animal Hospital immediately.”

Sadly, Golden would die on the way to the hospital.

It was later ruled that the dog died of anemia.…
