In a disturbing case of animal abuse, the Petersburg Police in Petersburg, Virginia are asking for the public’s help finding the man accused of torturing three puppies.  Brandon M. Gillie, 26, is wanted for mutilating, torturing and killing the puppies.

According to WricNews, the case dates back to April 2016 when authorities were called to the rear of Gillie’s vacant trailer home, in what the police have stated, as one of the cruelest cases of animal torture they have ever seen.  Detective Thomas Ewers, with the Petersburg Police Department, describes the unimaginable abuse:

“He forced them to swallow several items, including fire crackers and poison. He cut their bodies open, and when he cut their bodies open, he also tried to glue it back together. He put glue over the dogs’ faces, including their muzzle, I guess in an attempt keep the dogs from being loud or trying to suffocate them.”

The pups were dismembered and mutilated while they were still alive; authorities believe the unbelievable cruelty went on for several hours. Gillie’s girlfriend found the bodies of the puppies and called police. Necropsies of the dogs revealed the puppies’ stomachs contained over the counter and prescription medications, as well as insecticides. News station Wtvr6, reported the puppies were also burned.

Gillies is a white male, age 26, 5’10”, and weighs 170 pounds. Gillie is wanted for three counts of animal cruelty and three counts of killing livestock.  Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Solvers at (804) 861.1212.

Rest in peace little puppies. Help these little ones who never had a chance at life find justice.

    He must be found and removed from society. He is a vile human who has no regard for life, he lacks compassion, he is a direct child of Satan. He must go to prison for at messy 25 years, his crimes are beyond words or imagination. Please find this person ASAP and lock him up for the safety of all living beings in our world!

    I fear street justice will happen. My hope is a very long prison sentence where there are a lot of Bubbas. Disgust for this sewer scum is over the top. Please find and incarcerate this maggot crap. Look hard and turn him in.

    I hope the police find him first… He will have the time of his (LIFE) When the other inmates find out what he did to those poor defenseless pups. He deservers the worst. If there is a place worse then HELL that should be his new home for eternity.
