One day after a York County, South Carolina, family’s dog disappeared, she returned home with injuries which indicate that she may have been the victim of torture. According to Tuesday’s Fox News, the one-year-old dog who belongs to Armanda Bruce and her fiancé Samuel Hamilton has strange and devastating injuries which happened during her short time away.

The veterinarian who examined Diamond, a pit bull mix, discovered that she had holes in her paws and one of her legs, as well as a shattered hip and fractured femur. The injuries were so severe that one of Diamond’s legs had to be amputated.

Diamond isn’t the only dog in the area to disappear and return with injuries – according to the report, a neighbor’s dog vanished and returned home with injuries which were severe enough that the dog had to be put down.

The local authorities are investigating the case of possible animal cruelty.

    It sounds like there is a serial abuser in the area, grabbing dogs torturing them and then letting them go! I hope they get to the bottom of the problem before other pets are hurt like this. Another case where you have to “watch” your pets when outside so someone doesn’t get the opportunity to do something like this. Prayers Diamond recovers and lives a long happy life.

    I hope the monster is found before more dogs are hurt in this manner. Never leave your dogs outside without supervision. Diamond, I’m sorry this human trash hurt you and hope for your speedy recovery.

    “The local authorities are investigating the case of possible animal cruelty.” Do you think they wouldn’t? Not hard to believe because there are those who live to torture any animal. Police need to warn all pet owners (not just dogs but cats too). Have police patrol the areas and check with that owner to see when their dog was taken. Might be a pattern of this abuser. Hope they are caught.

    Sounds like a future serial killer is practicing on animals before graduating to humans……

    This is a VERY toxic, twisted POS who should be locked up forever…… can’t “fix” this individual……. Their soul is already condemned to burn in Hell forever for their cruelty……..

    Just hope this POS is found and locked up ASAP before anyone (animal or human) else suffers…….

    I do not care how FAR OUT IN THE COUNTRY you live, or how far apart the homes are……. DO NOT LET YOUR PETS ROAM FREELY!!!! They can not defend themselves against the horrible monsters out there who get their jollies hurting, abusing and killing pets.
    DO NOT LET YOUR PETS ROAM AROUND WITHOUT YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are simply tempting fate. It is not worth it.

    POSSIBLE ANIMAL CRUELTY???? It IS animal cruelty, no doubt about it – this neighborhood has a serial animal abuser running around and these authorities are sitting there scratching their empty heads – Sweet Jesus – the owners of these dogs need to start a posse and start looking for this monster. This bastard needs to be caught NOW!!!!

      My thoughts exactly! How can an animal have injuries like that and it be POSSIBLE animal cruelty? If your dog is healthy and injury free and it comes back injured like that, it is animal cruelty!

    I am horrified at these stories. People that sometimes look like your average Joe can be the most dangerous, violent predators. I pray for all animals with all the heinous crimes and suffering inflicted on them by man. Frightening!
