    Another bunch of scum who probably thought this was funny. When caught, give them hard labor to do where the only free time they have is going to the bathroom twice a day and eating (give 10 minutes). That’s it. Punishment for these cretins that will cause pain to them.

    Drown the bastards in a sea of hungry sharks! Love and blessings to you, dear River. Thank you all rescuers and caregivers!

    Rotten cold hearted coward scumbags. I have too many words for subhuman POS animal abusers. Evil piss ass mentally sick bastards who do this needs to slowly rot with cancer and die in severe pain. Hopefully the POS that did this discovers they have a terminal disease. I hate them and hope they rot.

    Yes, I’m sure the Central New York SPCA does take this seriously but if the culprits are found will the prosecutor and the judge? Probably not, after all there are more important things to attend to than a dog’s life. I live in upstate New York and know for a fact that our judicial system certainly isn’t any better than the rest of the country, especially when it comes to family pets. I hope they do find the POS that thought tying a dog in the Erie Canal was the proper way to dispose of it, but I don’t hold out much hope that they will get much more than probation if even that.
