The person believed to be responsible for the death of a dog in Louisville, Kentucky has been arrested. According to WLKY News, 71-year-old Larry Meadows is the individual who beat a border collie with a board last week – a witness contacted animal control after seeing the cruel situation.

The grievously wounded dog, dubbed “Mira,” was taken under the wing of The Arrow Fund last Thursday – tragically, despite veterinary intervention, the wounded dog died.

According to the Arrow Fund, Mira was not only beaten with a board, but she had been poisoned with anti-freeze. Before being rushed to a veterinarian, she suffered a severe seizure and had to be sedated.

    All of these mental people who abuse dogs have the same look; stupid, dirty, poor, and a crazy look in their eyes. IT’S TIME TO MAKE THESE PEOPLE PAY!! Take him out behind a barn and beat him until he is having seizures. Then open his mouth and poor antifreeze down his throat. RIP poor baby!!

    I am glad that he is old and near death. He is a worthless human and doesn’t deserve one ounce of compassion. I hope the stress of jail kills him. Burn in HELL you piece of shit.

    I’ll gladly buy anti-freeze and a board – who’s with me to hunt this MF down and give him a taste of his own medicine?

    I know this man and I can tell you that this story is not true. Whoever started this should be ashamed of themselves. The dog was a stray that wandered up on his property and he took it in and fed it with his other dog that is still alive and well. What happened to Mira is sad, but I don’t believe for a second that he is responsible for what happened. Meadows treated like the border collie like it was his own. Before people prepare to hang someone from the gallows, they need to consider that the dog wasn’t in Mr Meadows custody when the animal was rescued.

      A witness saw the dog being beaten, if it wasn’t “Mr. Meadows” then who was it and why wasn’t the dog in his custody if he indeed was taking care of it? I guess if he was not the culprit then he will a good civil suit against whoever did turn him in.

      Charles unless you were there you cannot say the witness lied. You know him to be a sweet guy but you don’t know how he treated Mira when you were not around. Some people take in animals simply to abuse them. Your friends personality has changed he is a dog killer now

    I also want to add that the Mira wasn’t tied up either, so the dog ate with Mr Meadows dog which is still alive. If he fed the dog poison, wouldn’t his own dog be dead too? Sounds kind of fishy to me.

      Yes it does since you stated above that Mira wasn’t in his possession, whose was she in? And who was the POS that was beating her with a board that the witness saw?

      Yes its fishy alright , he ended up hating Mira so he killed her. Your friend is a dog killer now. Perhaps he had not gotten around to killing his own dog yet

    I don’t know why people would lie about something like this, but that’s all it takes to cause someone a lot of grief and ruin their reputation.

    I am hoping this old bastard is thrown in jail where he dies. No sense wasting good space on this creep. Prayers to the sweet girl that had to die at the hands of this old monster fleabag.
