Police release photo of couple who allegedly left their dog starve and freeze to death

In a very disturbing act of animal neglect, cruelty and abuse, authorities released a photo on Wednesday of the couple who allegedly left their dog starve and freeze to death early last month. Authorities believe the two people pictured may have been the owners of “Luna” – a dog found behind a city owned abandoned property in Newburgh, New York. According to the  Hudson Valley News, the pit bull was frozen and had starved to death in a locked crate in the Orange County city.

A joint investigation with the City of Newburgh Police Department and the Hudson Valley SPCA continues, hoping to capture the responsible person(s) in the heinous and heartless crime. The photo, supplied by police, is from a security camera and is of poor quality, but it is hoped someone recognizes them – either the way they are standing or via their blurry facial photos.

Neighbors along Carter Street were the ones to call police.  Area resident Anthony Denizard made the heartbreaking discovery and partially blames the city of Luna’s death. On his Facebook page, Anthony tells the story:

“At 3:30 today my neighbor called me concerned about a horrible smell coming from behind a building owned by the City of Newburgh. As we head over searching for source of smell, we found a cage covered with  Plywood and inside we found an abandoned dead dog. And it looks like his death was caused by cold and hunger. We could tell he has been dead for a few days. It’s such a disgrace. Apparently there were many times this dog could have been helped since City of Newburgh worker/s have come to the place many times to check on the property or do maintenance. But it looks like they did not walk to the back nor checked property in its entirety at all. It seems they only paid attention to the front of the property, since we saw them parked on the front of the house multiple times! Other neighbors could have helped the dog and set him free had he not been covered with plywood. This is indignant-my anger and feelings about all this are hard to explain in words! I’m going to ask aggressors to take a moment and place themselves inside the cage and experience feeling Helpless, hopeless and hope for a stranger to come and help you before your time runs out. This is such an atrocity to dogs! Please advocate to stop this crimes towards dogs and report of such doings to the local authorities.”

Rest in peace Luna. We are sorry humans failed you so badly. On the Hudson Valley SPCA Facebook, one person commenting, stated they have seen these homeless people holding up signs begging for money. A $2,000 reward is now being offered in the case.

    I hope these POS, lousy, worthless use of skin, people are found. They need to be beaten within half inch of their life, or better yet, lock them up somewhere really cold and leave them without food……until they die a horrible, agonizing death. Come on karma….. you can find them.

    Hope the rest of their useless lives are filled with pain and suffering. Execution would improve our planet since these POS owners are a waste of resources……
    RIP angel. Sorry humans failed you in every way possible…… The monsters who did this to you will burn in Hell forever for their cruelty…….

    This is heartbreaking on every level! The fact that this dog could have been saved if the city had done its job properly, or if someone had seen the cage and the dog inside it! The 2 pieces of shit who condemned this poor dog to a slow horrible death means their lives are forfeit! Time for them to be put in a cage with no food or water!

    this breaks my heart and brings me to tears. How can a human being be so heartless and cold as to WATCH a helpless dog starve to death ? Why make him suffer ? It would have been more humane to shoot him. Shame on you people who did this ! This poor dog did not deserve this. But you on the other hand do…You are WORTHLESS !

    Do they know this was the dog’s name? or did someone give her the name. I hope they find these monsters, I can’t imagine the horrible death this dog suffered. Someone needs to pay for what they have done.

He had to be barking for help,and if you are so into yourself that u can’t go investagate where the dog is ,your almost just as guilty P. O .S.humans.

    These two are scum. I don’t know about you, but looking at the picture provided of the two individuals, I couldn’t identify either of them… in fact not sure that the one on the right could be a female. Disgusting. If they’re ever caught, I hope they never see the light of day again.

    I put myself in this cage with Luna and I feel the hunger and cold on my skin. I wonder why nobody can see me back here. I am so lonely. I am too weak to bark or cry out for help. I wonder what I did wrong that I was put out here. I didn’t mean to do anything wrong. All you needed to do was show me and tell me what I did wrong. Why don’t you love me anymore? I am freezing now I cannot move, I am not hungry anymore I remember when we played and I had a warm bed and food and water. I can feel my skin freezing to the ground. I have to close my eyes and sleep now. I can’t breath it hurts to breath. Nobody is coming. A tear falls from my eye and rolls down my cheek. Why don’t you love me anymore? Why won’t anyone come,

    Luna deserves some REAL justice and the blame is all over the place – BUT these two wastes of flesh and blood can carry the load – just another couple of lowlifes who I would be more than happy to put at the head of the line for a date with the wood chipper. SOMEONE NEEDS TO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS POOR DOG’S HORRIFIC DEATH.

    WTF! Do the evil abusers of society go and get a dog to specifically do this? I don’t get it,why get a dog in the first place? If there was even a sliver of humanity in these abusers they could surrender them to a rescue,a shelter,or rehome the dog! So many options which makes this so much more unforgivable! Playing God and deciding to slowly torture a helpless animal to death. I am completely sickened and so,so heartbroken by little Luna’s suffering and demise! It’s so painful to starve to death! OMG! WHY? RIP LUNA I AM SO SO SORRY U HAD TO SUFFER AND DIE!
