Hikers who set out to enjoy a trek in the great outdoors made a horrible discovery in Cass Township, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, over the weekend. The Morning Call reports that a dead dog, described as a young adult pit bull, was inside of a cage which had been buried in the ground.

A deliberately cruel act

Authorities believe that the dog’s death is the result of a deliberately cruel act. Someone put the brindle colored dog into a cage which was buried in the ground – the hole was covered with boards from a nearby collapsed structure. The dog appears to have starved to death and there are signs of torture.

Cruelty Investigation

The authorities are hoping for leads in this animal cruelty case. Anyone with information about this case should reach out to the State Police at Frackville.

    Whoever did this needs to be found and treated the same way. This is absolute animal abuse and they need to be PUNISHED.

    You don’t want your dog anymore, take it to a shelter, don’t do stuff so inhumane as this scum,evil creature did. Hope they can somehow find out who did this and put them in jail.

    Prison and “hell” await! Hope they come swiftly … especially “hell”! In the meantime, hope he is crushed in a box and starved!

    Why do some people feel because the dog is a pitbull it can’t feel pain and suffering?!?! Stupid and ignorant people walk on the face of this earth! I would like to see happen to them what happened to this dog, but the rest of the human race has a conscience.

    This makes my sick to my stomach. I can’t imagine finding something like this.RIP sad dog. You didn’t deserve this. Karma to the monster that did this to you.

    More sick bastards. My words for Motherfu%$ers like this all I want for them to slowly rot in severe pain, be tortured and die. They should have died when they did this to the poor dog. I hope they don’t get away with this or someone sets them on fire while they are alive.
