Tortured puppy found hanging from tree

Horribly abused puppy found hanging from tree in Sacramento

A horribly abused puppy, who suffered traumatic injuries across every portion of her body, was found hanging from a tree in Sacramento, California, on January 19. According to the Sacramento Bee, the local animal control agency has offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for the puppy’s death.

A necropsy on the deceased mixed breed puppy revealed that the 12-pound pup had been terribly abused – there were “fractures from nose to tail,” and abdominal injuries. Chief animal control officer Jace Huggins stated, “These injuries suggest severe, severe abuse.”

The hanging puppy was found by a citizen along the levee in the 5000 block of Riverside Boulevard – the animal control agency is hoping to find the person responsible before they inflict harm again. Huggins stated:

“We hope someone will realize that maybe a friend’s dog disappeared, or that they saw something” that might help investigators solve the case and bring the perpetrator to justice.

Information about this cruelty case can be called in to Crime Stoppers at 916-443-HELP or to Officer Huggins at 916-808-5855.

      This is horrible, I live in Sacramento, & to think there are low life scum in my city that could do that to a innocent puppy is beyond words. I hope they find them & give them the maximum sentence allowed. If I were the judge it would be an eye for a eye. Karma will catch up with you. Rot in hell !

    I would like to take whoever did this to that poor innocent puppy, break every bone in their body, kick them with steel-toed boots from head to toe, hang them in a tree and grab a club and play the pinata game. That’s the kind of justice this POS deserves!

    RIP sweet pup. Your life was filled with torture. You’re now in the loving arms of God and no one will ever be able to hurt you again. I hope they find the POS who hurt you – I’d personally like to inflict the same type of horror on him/her that he/she did to you, sweet baby.

    I agree someone knows something….what is wrong with someone wanting to hurt a precious 12 lb puppy…..I pray they catch who did this and put them away for a very long time….if they did this, they’ll kill again and next time it might not be another innocent puppy…..I truly believe if a person would hurt an innocent animal they will hurt a person.

    This is the time where vigilante justice should be accepted. I would gladly give this hunk of sewer slime exactly what they gave an innocent defenseless puppy – NO MERCY!

      Nancy I couldn’t agree with you more. Our justice system never serves up the punishment crimes like this deserve. I on the other hand could unleash on this person exactly what they have coming to them n never lose a minutes sleep afterwards!

    this is almost beyond comprehension. undoubtedly an extremely insane in-human deed. whom ever is responsible for this horrible act should be tarred and feathered by humans and receive his due punishment from our LORD.
