Police search for 3 teens who tossed a tiny dog to a chained large dog

Police are currently searching for three teenagers in the East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania area who are alleged to have tossed a tiny dog to a pit bull that had been chained to a tree along Pocahontas Road in Stroud Township on Friday afternoon.

According to the A.W.S.O.M. animal shelter,  Stroud Area Regional Police, stated a witness saw the boys throw the small tan terrier to the black and brown brindle pit bull. The larger dog attacked the tiny dog and as the witness approached, the teens fled the scene. The Good Samaritan rushed the dog to the shelter. Sadly the Cairn terrier died. At this time, it is not known where he came from or who is owner might be.

“This was an extremely violent attack. It looked like his mid-side was completely ripped open. His intestines and pancreas was hanging out. It kind of looked like a shark attack. He had huge bite marks from the canines of the pit bull’s teeth deep into him. He was ripped up really bad,” said Rich Homar, A.W.S.O.M. director.

Awsom called the State Police and Stroud Regional Police and were met at the scene. The dog that had been tied to the tree was no longer there.

The three boys have been described as  older teens and African American. They were last seen running down Pocahantas Drive and possibly into Blue Mountain Lake Estates. One of the boys wore red basketball shorts.

Anyone with information is asked to call Awsom at 570-421-3647, or sent an e-mail at info@awsomanimals.org.  Help this innocent dog find some justice and possibly save another dog being taught to fight and kill. Bring these people to justice.

    Surprised this article actually said boys were African American. Guess their parents, once arrested, will say racial profiling even though there was an eyewitness to this horrible event. When caught these future thugs should be made to deal with unwanted pets and what actually can happen to them if not adopted. Death is not fun once you deal with it daily and up close. Them and their families need treatment to have empathy for animals, not what they allowed to happen. Our future citizens of this country at work.

      Yes, of course. I knew that the perps were black, even before reading the rest of the story. Why are these people so brutal, so cruel, so criminally inclined and they raise children that are just as bad as they are.

    I HOPE AND PRAY THESE WORTHLESS KIDS GET CAUGHT AND PUNISHED! THESE ARE THE KIDS THAT CONTRIBUTES NOTHING BUT VIOLENCE IN THIS PLANET, AND HAS NO ROOM TO BREATH AIR. THESE ARE THE KIDS THAT SHOULD NOT BE BORN TO BEGIN WITH! IF I WAS THEIR MOTHER, I WOULD DO THE RIGHT THING AND TURN THEM IN, AND FORGET THE DAY THEY WERE BORN.

    Monsters are breeding and we have more monsters than good people anymore, it seems. This is horrendous. And to think the pain and terror that poor little dog went through just makes me cry. Karma, find these twits and give them the justice they so deserve!

    Beyond outrageous and disgusting……. These POS’s are on their way to becoming serial killers…… Their parents should be so proud…… NOT…….

    The cruelty shocks me…… anyone who participates in this (& views it as “entertainment”) is going to burn in Hell forever for their cruelty (hope they all die ASAP: alone, in horrible circumstances and afraid…… the same as the innocent pet stolen died)……

    MONSTERS!! Find them and lock them up for life! They had a case in Great Britain recently where the parents paid a penalty for what their monstrous kids did: it’s way past time parents on this side of the pond started taking responsibility for the demon spawn they raise. Those thugs should NOT be allowed to walk the streets, able to produce more thugs like them, etc., just as their parents probably did

    At no age is this ever a prank, this is a sign of people worth without empathy for other living beings and if this is absent in you, it can not be taught. Some people are just wired different and are wicked and if caught they should all be tried as adults. There won’t be any rehabbing of these evil teens. RIP pooch.
