A family in Valparaiso, Indiana, is mourning the loss of their adopted dog “Dudley,” who was found decapitated not long after disappearing from their home. According to Friday’s publication of the Chicago Tribune, the pit bull, who had been adopted from the Porter County Animal Shelter, disappeared on Wednesday evening and his owner, Jennifer Howard, reported him as stolen to the police.

On Thursday, Dudley’s body was found on train tracks near Howard’s home on Dumas Street. To Howard, and her sister, Krystal York, it appeared that someone had purposely laid Dudley’s body (and his head) on the tracks to make it appear that he had been struck and killed. York explained, “Somebody sat that head there for us to find him,” adding, “there’s no way” the dog was hit by a train.”

Jeff Howard, Jennifer’s ex-husband, thinks that Dudley was purposefully killed as well – he told the Chicago Tribune why, based on the condition of Dudley’s body, “I grew up in the country and we’ve hunted all my life, and that’s a perfect cut.”

Dudley’s owners, and the authorities, are hoping to learn more about this terrible situation. Anyone with a tip is encouraged to call the Valparaiso Police Department’s Detective Bureau at (219) 462-2135 or text the information to TIP411 (847-411) and enter “Valpo.”

    Someone needs to be found and treated in EXACTLY the same way as this fiend treated poor Dudley. Anyone want to bet it’s a DBO piece of filth?

    OMG, this isn’t far from me. I’ve helped transport dogs to the shelter he was adopted from. Prayers for Dudley and his family, and also really hoping the authorities find who did this. Personally, I think the same should be done to them….

        I agree with you, Jill, but if hangings aren’t allowed, then at least do to the POS what he/she did to the animal…..an eye for an eye.

    WHEN will morons learn to keep their pets inside, if they can’t be bothered to supervise them outside??? Hunters don’t value animals at all.
