On Monday, the Gloucester County Sheriff’s Office, in Virginia, reached out to the public for help in a disturbing case of animal cruelty which took place at a residence in late July. According to a release from the Sheriff’s Office, at some point in time between late July 27 and early July 28, someone entered a home in the 7900 Block of Gum Neck Landing Road and killed the homeowner’s pet dog.

According to the release, the dog, whose breed was not identified, was decapitated. The Sheriff’s Office stated, “. A necropsy was performed on the dog and the case is under investigation. Nothing else in the residence was disturbed or stolen.”

At this point in time, while the investigation remains ongoing, no further details about the cruel incident are being released.  Anyone with information is asked to contact the Gloucester County Sheriff’s Office at 804-693-3890. Callers may also provide information via Crime Stoppers at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP. You may remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.

  1. Sounds like someone had a beef with the dog’s owner, if nothing was missing then they broke into the house presumably to kill the dog! I hope they fine the POS that did this!

  2. RIP sweet one ♡ I’m so sorry 🙁
    Sounds like maybe a personal vendetta against the owners, only cause nothing was taken.I could be way off, No matter how dare they do such evil to the innocent one!

  3. find who did it and then do it to them.or jail the person with people who care about animals that is in jail there.

  4. Like in The Godfather…..the horse was decapitated, and the head was put in bed with the owner. The Corleone family had a beef with the owner.

  5. Too bad you’re pretty you can come to my house and do that to my dog I think habitation to be the least of your problems. Peg piece of s***

  6. I have a suspect that the OWNER may have an Idea what THIS Horrific incident is all about!!!! This is a WARNING!!! Mafia ! Gang! Angry Husband or Boyfriend! Gambling Debt! Drug Related! The poor animal paid the price!!!!

    • I agree with Penny that the owner knows who did this. No one enters a home unless they want something or someone. Could it be they were trying out a new sword? This is a sick person and he needs to be found. Adult or child something is wrong with this picture.
