Police are investigating the disturbing stabbing and bludgeoning deaths of two dogs on Wednesday in a north Fort Worth neighborhood. One family who found their Mastiff stabbed multiple times in their own backyard thinks a threatening note left for them just days before may be connected.
According to Fox News, Ruth Soto, the owner of the Mastiff named Oso found her beloved dog crying and whining late Tuesday evening. The next morning she discovered his body and called the Fort Worth police. When authorities arrived and turned the 200 pound dog over, Soto said there were so many stab wounds, the police stopped counting. Next to Soto’s lifeless body was a knife.
As to the note, Soto said a note had been left on her door:
“Please move your dog away from my fence line. I can’t have your dog bark at me every time I go in my backyard. Do not go to my house to speak to me.”
And that same night, the Fort Worth Police Department also reported the death of a neighbor’s husky. When the family returned home, they went to the backyard and saw their dog had been “bludgeoned in the backyard. The owners tried to follow the person but were not successful. It is not known if it was the same person, however police have confirmed there have been two other reports of dogs killed in the same area.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Fort Worth Police Department.
