Phoenix police are investigating a horrific case of animal cruelty and have offered a $2,000 reward this week after discovering the beaten and dragged body of a boxer/pitbull mix puppy found March 31 on the corner of 23rd Avenue and Thomas Road. The puppy had been beaten, tied up and then presumably dragged behind a vehicle. Authorities want someone to be held accountable for the heartless deed.

According to the Arizona Humane Society, a rope had been tied around the puppy’s front and back legs. Even more disturbing is that investigators say the dog had been beaten before it was dragged. Bretta Nelson of the organization released a statement about the investigation stating:

“This person will be held accountable for their actions and we want the community to see these crimes are taken very seriously.”

    Someone KNOWS who did this and needs to step up if only to get the reward – personally, I think the bastard to did this should face the same fate they dealt to this innocent puppy. Beat them senseless, hogtie their useless ass to the bumper of a truck and drag them through the Arizona desert and leave them for buzzard lunch – they deserve no less.

    I hope they find the POS who did this before he can do this to another innocent puppy or kitten. Needless to say, he’s done it to others. Punishment won’t be anything close to what this monster deserves: that won’t come until he lands in Hell. Hope that day comes soon.

    Pisses me off and hurts my heart and soul! They want to hold the killer of this horror ACCOUNTABLE but they will not! These lawmakers and courts DO ABSOLUTLY NOTHING TO PUNISH THE CRIME OF ANIMAL CRUELTY!! A fine and probation IS NOT NO NEAR THE LEVEL OF PUNISHMENT REQUIRED TO HELP TO STOP THIS HORROR! Arresting these killers and then imposing only fines and probation does only one thing and is to MAKE MONEY FOR THE COURTS!! IT NEVER IS ANY WAY PUNISHED THE PERPETRATOR OF THIS HORRIFIC CRIME OF ANIMAL CRUELTY! IM SO APPALLED AND SICK OF THE INDIFFERENCE AND INACTION OF THE LAW MAKERS AND THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM REGARDING THE CRIME OF ANIMAL CRUELTY!! RIP POOR DOG!! Smh

    The laws need to be very harsh to stop CRUELTY to defenseless animals as well as humans, those who do these HORRENDOUS acts of CRUELTY towards animals, also will turn there abuse to murder! Than abuse towards children/adults, torture/murder. They are very sick people, they never stop!!!

    there should be a prison just for animal abusers. instead of using poor defenseless animals in labs, farm factories, circuses, whatever where an animal is abused, they should use these low life POS. see how they would like it.
    every day you can read where an animal has been horrifically abused or killed……. you nasty rotten F……. you will

    SOMEONE KNOWS THIS PUPPY….AND KNOWS THE MONSTER WHO DID THIS. IF YOU DO NOT REPORT THEM, YOU ARE 100% AS GUILTY AS THE WORTHLESS PIECE OF FLESH THAT DID THIS.
    HAVE A HEART……. report this monster. Anyone who can do this IS ILL and WILL TURN ON A HUMAN or yet another defenseless animal. Just the fact that the chicken did this to a puppy…… says it all.

    Someone knows who did this. Step up for justice, donate reward to your local humane society. People suck. that will never happen. I believe vigilante justice should return since o u r laws basically do very little if nothing.
