Savannah teens suspected of setting puppy on fire inside of trash can

The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department investigators suspect two teenagers set a puppy on fire inside of a trash can on Saturday morning.  Authorities had responded to a report of a suspicious person at the location where an eight-month-old puppy was found inside of a trash can on fire.

According to WjclNews, the incident occurred on the 600 block of East Lathrop Avenue. The fire was quickly extinguished and the pup was rushed to an emergency veterinarian for emergency treatment. The puppy is said to be “doing better” and veterinarians will know more about the little one’s condition in a few days. A police report indicates the dog suffered burns to 15 percent of his body and suffered from smoke inhalation.

An investigation continues although no arrests have been made at this time. The puppy is recovering at Savannah Animal Care. Anyone with information about this animal cruelty situation is asked to contact Crimestoppers at 912.234.2020.

    Thankful some people were aware of the torture. Sounds like these people put the fire out. .

    Get these little scum and their parents too. Make the parents pay, put the kids into public service then kick them in the butt as well as the head.

    Hope the pup gets to feeling better very soon and that he gets justice for the torture.

    What type of anger and hate do these thugs have inside of themselves? Void of any feeling other than hate and anger and don’t care what they do to harm others. This time a dog, next time a person. Find them and punish them to the point where they might have some understanding of what they did. Horrible what is happening in this country and parents are not being parents anymore. They have lost control of their children at a very young age.

    Find the sociopaths and teach the turds the consequences of their heinous behavior. Set the little POS on fire so they can feel the same pain they inflicted on this poor pup. An eye for an eye!

    Another prime example of what is in our future – fucking punks who have no respect or compassion for anything. They have already proven they are useless sacks of moldy garbage and will continue their cruelty to animals because it means nothing to them – hopefully, their miserable lives will end soon, violently and painfully – they are the offspring of subhuman wastes whose parental skills SUCK!

    I can’t help but wonder if these EVIL DEMON’s are siblings or do two families have Children so terribly misguided, disturbed, and sadistic… Their families either encouraged this Vile Trait or they are Hiding their heads in Shame…. Next the Demonic “perp’s” will torch the homes with their parents and siblings in it!!!

    What is with parents nowadays? If one of my kids did this, I’d take everything that kid held dear and burn it right in front of them. Then I’d make daily life so miserable they’d be begging to live in jail or finding somewhere else to live, and good riddance. But I taught mine to respect all living creatures so they’d never do such a thing, they’d be the kids saving the animal and whooping on the kids that did it!
