Dog with painted nails found stabbed to death

Dog with painted nails found stabbed to death in the woods

A city worker made a disturbing discovery in a wooded area of Belleville, Illinois. On Thursday, the Belleville Police Department reached out to the public for help in identifying the victimized dog, with painted nails, who was found fatally stabbed near the 400 block of Catawba Avenue.

According to the authorities, the dog, a pit bull or pit bull mix, appeared to have been stabbed multiple times and strangled. The dog, a female, did not any identification on her body. After the initial post to Facebook, the police offered additional information:

Updated canine description from our previous post
After a preliminary screening by the St. Clair Animal Clinic, we have an updated description of the canine. A 1 to 2 year old female pit bull / pit bull mix that was seemingly well fed. She is black in color with white coloration under her chin, stomach area, and paws. Her nails on her paws appeared to have been painted yellow and pink. She had not been spayed nor has she borne a litter.

Initially the authorities stated that the dog was not wearing a collar – they later stated that she “may have been wearing a black leather type collar and a white flea collar.”

If anyone has information related to this case or is missing a pit bull / pit bull mix matching this description, please contact Belleville Police (618) 234-1212.

      Certainly sounds like it. As I stated below. From the description of the collars that the authorities stated later there could have been a leather collar and white flea collar which tells me someone is missing their beloved dog.

    I DON’T HAVE MUCH TO SAY ABOUT PAINTING THE DOG’S NAILS AND STABBING TO DEATH ALL I HOPE FOR THE ABUSER COMES IN CONTACT WITH SOMEONE THAT WILL DO THE SAME TO THEM. THEY ARE NOTHING BUT SCUM AND A USELESS POS TO TO DO THAT TO ANY ANIMALS AND HOPE THEY ARE TORMENTED, ROT AND DIE. I WOULD BE FIRST IN LINE TO DO THIS TO THEM. ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING AND A SICK SCUM.

    It sounds to me as if someone stole the dog only to tortured and kill her. Police commented that “she may have been wearing a black leather type collar and a white flea collar” which leads me to believe someone is missing this poor baby. Having been well fed with trimmed nails does not sound like a stray dog. There’s an asshole/assholes out there. They need to be caught POS’s! I can’t imagine the horror she went through. RIP fur baby.

    Why do humans have to do this disgusting crap! This dog suffered terror and pain before succumbing to her injuries! This is so sad on so many levels! Why was she killed and by what thing! Who did she belong to, was she taken by the thing that killed her? Too many questions no answers!

    Whoever murdered this innocent animal deserves to be tied to a chair and dumped in the nearest deepest river – if they are ever caught the justice system will do little to nothing – as usual, This waste of flesh and blood needs to be eliminated.

      I believe the law should be is what these low life have done should be done to them and maybe animal abuse would dissolve or at least be reduced. These scums know they can get away with it. If this was done to a human that would be murder but animals don’t seem to be on the same level as humans and they have a beating heart and are defenseless.
