‘Brutal act’: $5k reward for person responsible for beating dog with baseball bat

In Solano County, California, a $5,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the “brutal act” of  fatally beating a dog with a baseball bat last month in Fairfield. According to the Animal Legal Defense Fund, on September 28, in an alley behind a house south of Ohio and Webster streets, a resident heard a loud thumping noise. When the resident went out to investigate, he saw three men standing around a dog that had been chained to a fence.

Only the dog’s back legs touched the ground, and then one of the men, described as a slim black male in his twenties, struck the dog’s head with a baseball bat. When the men realized someone had seen them, they sped off in a gold colored SUV. The witness called police and neighbors drove the dog to the Solano County Animal Shelter in Fairfield.

The dog, described as a four-year-old tan colored pit bull breed suffered more than one severe injury including a fractured skull. He later succumbed to his injuries overnight at the emergency clinic.

Police are searching for any information regarding the identities of the three men involved. The vehicle is thought to be a 2004 or 2005 Chevy Tahoe, with a partial license plate of “WB2V.”  Animal advocates said they have not identified the dog’s owner, so they have named the pit bull “Justice.”

“This dog suffered a senseless and brutal act of violence,” Stephen Wells, executive director of the Animal Legal Defense Fund, said in a statement. “Studies have consistently demonstrated a link between animal cruelty and violence against humans.”

Anyone with information related to the killing is asked to call Fairfield police dispatch at (707) 428-7300 or a police tip line at (707) 428-7345. Tips can also made by calling Solano Crime Stoppers at (707) 644-7867 or by texting “TIP FAIRFIELD” followed by a message to 888777. A person convicted of maliciously and intentionally wounding or killing an animal can go to prison for up to three years and/or be fined $20,000.

    WHAT A BUNCH OF LOW LIFE SCUM COWARDS AND POS IS MY DEFINITION OF ANIMAL ABUSERS. THEY PUNKS TIED THE DOG TO THE FENCE AND THERE ARE MORE THAN ONE. THESE BASTARDS NEED TO BE FOUND SO THEY CAN GET MUTILATED AND LEFT FOR DEAD. IF THESE DAMN LAWS FOR ANIMAL ABUSE WERE STRONGER MAYBE THIS SHIT MIGHT STOP. IF THIS WAS A HUMAN THIS WOULD BE MURDER BUT FOR AN ANIMAL IT ISN’T. PENALIZE ABUSERS LIKE THEY DO FOR MURDERERS AND MORE SINCE ANIMALS CANNOT DEFEND THEMSELVES. THESE LAWS SUCK FOR ANIMALS AND THIS IS WHY THESE LOW LIFE MOTHERFU&$ERS CONTINUE THIS SHIT. I WOULD DO JAIL TIME AFTER I FINISHED TORTURING THESE SCUMBAGS TO PROTECT AN ANIMAL. REALLY SICK OF THIS SHIT. MENTALLY SICK SOB WHO HAVE NOTHING TO DO. EITHER GET A JOB OR GET THE FUCK OFF THIS EARTH AND SUFFER BEFORE YOU DO WITH CANCER.

    With a $5,000 reward someone should step up and turn these hunks of pond scum in – they need to be held responsible and not be able to get away with their cruelty to an innocent defenseless animal – Punks who are spineless cowards – if they met up with someone their size they’d all be crying for mommy.

    I agree with the above comments. These people not only must be caught, but the same done to them that they did to this poor dog. Sentences for crimes like this must be made stiffer with much longer jail time. You know these thugs can’t be rehabilitated, so why even bother ever letting them out? Probably have a criminal history a mile long. Why does law enforcement not take crimes like this as seriously as a human?
