A grim discovery was recently made inside of an abandoned house on Detroit’s east side. According to Thursday’s Fox 2 News, the body of a dog, described as a shepherd mix, was found hanging from a hook inside of the otherwise vacant house.

Theresa Sumpter, founder of Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue, told Fox 2 how the horrific discovery has impacted her emotionally, “It’s heartbreaking. It made my stomach turn. It made me cry. It makes me have nightmares.”

The smell inside of the abandoned house was so foul that there were fears that other dogs might be dead inside as well…no other bodies were found, but there was evidence that dog fighting may have taken place behind the closed doors and shuttered windows of the brick house.

The rescue group wants to know who is responsible for the heinous act of cruelty – they may have a lead. The rescue group told Fox 2, “We know for a fact that this person served time previously for animal abuse and he was released in early April, so yes we do believe that he is involved in this.”

On Thursday, the non-profit posted graphic images of the dog who died after being tortured – the agency stated:

WARNING……. EXTREMELY GRAPHIC. We are posting these pictures now of the dog that was hung and tortured because we want everyone to understand the importance of providing information so that the people who did this can be punished. No Dog should have to suffer this way.

Information is being sought about this animal cruelty case. Anyone with information is asked to call: 248-906-9022.

    I fucking hope they find these fucking devil worshipping bastards. It’s ignorant pricks like that that has caused other people to hate so much. I’ve never hated some humans so much in all my life. Well if you want to call them human.

    This bastard NEEDS to be found ASAP and I hope that he is not turned into authorities – he deserves to be tortured and burned alive – complete waste of flesh and blood. PLEASE Detroit – find this maggot and give him the same as he gave to a poor innocent animal – NO MERCY!

    These assholes need to be found and havevthe same treatment given to them. They think the one who did this was already arrested before so you know he will keep doing it. He needs to go to prison and stay there.

    I saw the trimmed nails and thought the same. Someone’s pet that was stolen or picked up when he got loose. Brought to a dog fight and he wouldn’t fight. So they tortured and killed him. Sound familiar, Michael Vick?

      I brought up the trimmed nails only because I have owned GSD these assholes kidnap dogs to use them as dog bait. My friend who lives outside of Detroit told me they will kidnap owner’;s dogs and strays to use them as dog bait.

    This should be a major red flag for the justice system that there are individuals that cannot be helped and should be taken out of this lifetime
