“Real life monsters” shot 7 dogs in the head after breaking their necks and throwing their bodies away as trash along a rural road on the outskirts of Charlotte, North Carolina. The grizzly discovery, made on Friday by Pawsitive Impact NC Dog Rescue, has launched an investigation into animal cruelty.
On the organization’s Facebook page Saturday afternoon, the disturbing details and photos about the situation were shared with supporters:
“In this world, we unfortunately, are amongst some real life MONSTERS! Friday night we received a devastating message about seven dogs that were found dead and dumped by a rural road in Union County NC. Saturday morning Karlei and I drove out to the location (Morgan Academy Rd) that we were given to find a very gruesome, heartbreaking scene. Seven dogs murdered! Shot in the head and their necks were broken.”
The rescue group removed the bodies and gave each dog a name posthumously to provide the animals with “dignity.” They decided to post the disturbing photos, after filing a report with the Union County Sheriff’s Department, hoping that someone will recognize the dogs and provide authorities with further information for the investigation possibly leading to an arrest and conviction for animal cruelty.
Two of the dogs were taken to a local veterinarian where the causes of death were confirmed as having had broken necks and gunshot wounds to their heads. The dogs were named Sophie, Scarlett, Ingrid, Rhett, Clyde, Baker and Bailey.Anyone with information about the dogs is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 704-283-3789 or Crime Stoppers at 704-283-5600.
Rest in peace sweet dogs. We are so sorry that humans betrayed you. The dogs’ bodies will all be cremated.
