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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Help this innocent dog find some justice and possibly save another dog being taught to fight and kill. Bring these people to justice.
