My heart goes out to this young girl who will probably never be able to get this terrible sight out of her mind! I am still shaking with rage at the thought of this horrendous act! Whoever did this is so far beyond medical or psychological help that there is no hope for them!
Isn’t it time that our judicial system come to grips with what the medical community has been telling them for years? Namely that people who go to the point of harming animals will NO DOUBT go on to harm humans as well? When this person is found I hope that someone can stand witness for Chevey as to the magnitude of the evil in the soul of the scum that did this. Let’s remember the horror he (or possibly she) inflicted on this furbaby and his teenage furmom.
Please be advised that this story is particularly gruesome.
Thanks to the Sydney Morning Herald for this horrible news.
Girl horrified to find her dog’s head in box
A 17-year-old US girl who spent weeks looking for her missing dog was horrified when she unwrapped a box left on her doorstep and found her dog’s severed head inside.
Homicide investigators in the state of Minnesota were looking into the case because of the “implied” terroristic threat, St Paul Police Sergeant Jim Gray said.
The Humane Society of the United States said it was offering a reward of up to $US2,500 ($A3,185) for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
“This was extraordinarily heinous,” said Dale Bartlett, the Humane Society’s deputy manager for animal cruelty issues.
“I deal with hundreds and hundreds of cruelty cases each year. When I read about this case, it took my breath away. It’s horrible. That level of depravity is beyond belief.”
After Crystal Brown’s four-year-old Australian shepherd mix wandered away last month, she peppered the neighbourhood with “missing” posters, and went door to door looking for him.
She called the St Paul animal shelter and rode the bus there several times.
“I felt empty,” Crystal said. “I couldn’t talk to anyone. He was my dog. It was just me and him. … I told him everything and he never shared any of my secrets.”
Two weeks ago, a gift-wrapped box was left at the house Crystal shares with her grandmother.
The box had batteries on top, and a note that said “Congratulations Crystal. This side up. Batteries included.”
Crystal opened the box and found her dog’s head inside. The box also contained Valentine’s Day candy.
Crystal screamed when she saw her dog’s face, the Star Tribune reported.
