Cruel burglars are said to have drowned a family’s seven-month-old puppy in the bathtub during a break in on Wednesday in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England. The heartless culprits stole a number of items from the Cobholm Close home including their computer.

The puppy was found “floating in the bath Dead” reported ITVNews. It was the owner’s brother-in-law who made the disturbing discovery when he arrived at the home after the burglary. The puppy named Benji, belonged to Mark Phillips who has been described as “devastated,” – stating the pup was considered “part of the family from day one” when he arrived.

The friendly lovable puppy loved to play and was great with children. Authorities are calling this a particularly cruel crime and are asking members of the public to come forward with any information as to suspicious behavior in the neighborhood. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Great Yarmouth CID on 101 or Crimestoppers at 0800 555111.

    Stealing wasn’t enough? They had to murder the family’s puppy as well? The scumbags deserve to be locked up for the next 30 years, and then some.

    Ces assassins ne méritent pas de vivre, ils doivent être condamnés à mort, aucune excuse ne peut être acceptable. La mort par noyade, la serait la justice. Pas de pitié pour les barbares.
