Puppy hit over the head with hammer and then tossed in microwave

Police in Craigavon, Northern Ireland are investigating a disturbing animal cruelty crime after reports were made concerning a puppy hit over the head with a hammer and then tossed into a microwave oven.

According to the organization’s Facebook, the PSNI (Police Service of Northern Island) believe the incident occurred on Saturday between the late morning and late afternoon. An 11-week-old puppy had been brutally killed in Lurgan with a hammer. Reports have come in stating the details and video had been posted on social media platforms including Snapchat. Two men, aged 16 and 23 have been arrested and questioned on suspicion of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal. The body of the puppy and the hammer have been found and a complete investigation is underway.

Police are asking for the public’s assistance:

“If you have seen any footage or photographs of the incident (NOT just screen shots of conversations and allegations) then we need to hear from you. If you happened to screen shot or record any videos that were sent, we need them. That will be the difference between an evidential case and pure hearsay. Currently, what we have is a lot of “he said, she said,” the police wrote on their Facebook page.

“Whatever happened, it is obvious that little Sparky suffered a horrendous death. We want to get to the bottom of that and sure that whoever is responsible is held to account. We have 2 in custody but need the evidence to be able to take that further.”

Readers participating in the conversation are outraged at the thought of what may have happened to the puppy.

“I just hope this is rumour, and it didn’t happen to that poor wee pup – please no one could be that evil,” one woman wrote on the PSNI’s comment section.

Anyone with information is asked to contact 101 and cite incident #1135 of 05/02/18. Someone knows the truth – help Sparky find justice even though he died.

    These scumbags are evil, and Northern Ireland doesn’t punish animal abusers with anything other than a slap on the wrist! What they deserve is EXACTLY what they did to this innocent puppy and nothing less!

    I really, really hate people sometimes.

    These two people should be tried as adults! Take fingerprints of the hammer, everything! They need to be put away for a long time! RIP Sparky!

    No justice for these slugs, but do the same to them what they did to this puppy. No more, but no less. The courts need to turn these scum over to the people who live in the community and let them give them justice. They should be hung until dead. No mercy for these things if it is found that they did everything that is said they did.

    If these facts are proven (and the monsters posted it on FB so I am guessing they were bragging) then I hope they are locked away and never see the light of day again. I do not care if one is only 16… he needs the same harsh punishment as the 23 year old monster….. they do not deserve any mercy, any lenience….only pain and humiliation!

    Heartbreaking and Horrific! Prosecute these evil monsters to the maximum extent! Little Sparky suffered agonizing pain, despicable abuse, horrible torture, and unspeakable terror! Angel Sparky, I’m so very sorry Angel Sparkey, you were horrifically failed and profoundly betrayed. Sweetheart, you were so beautiful, and you didn’t even have a chance to blossom. Rest in Sweet Heavenly Peace, Angel Sparky. You are now in the tender loving care of Jesus. Play and run with the Angels in Heaven’s soft fluffy clouds clouds. You are loved and will never be forgotten. RIP Precious Angel Baby. ❤️????????????????????????????????????????????????????❤️

    Hope the authorities lock these maniacs up and lose the keys so they are forever in prison!!!
    Serial killers start on animals….. they would eventually “graduate” to people….

    These 2 POSs will burn in Hell forever for their cruelty. Here’s hoping they get there ASAP after dying horrible, painful, terrifying deaths (& they will be unloved & treated after their deaths as vile toxic waste)……. won’t be missed by anyone other than their internet providers….

    Precious little treasure, your life was stolen from you (& your life mattered). I am absolutely heartbroken for your trauma & death.

    Please look for MacKitty in Heaven and he will welcome you into his snuggle buddies group. You can RIP amongst his loving friends……..
