‘Pure evil’: Piles of dead Chihuahuas shot and left along roadways

In Laurens County, South Carolina, “pure evil” lurks. Authorities discovered multiple Chihuahuas shot to death lying in a field in Gray Court on Tuesday.

According to the Facebook page of Mickey Fortin, who discovered the dogs while out of his walk Tuesday morning, wasn’t quite sure what he had originally spotted. When he made the realization, these were dead dogs piled up, Fortin was devastated.

“To me, it’s devastating. I can’t believe someone would do something like this,” Mickey explained during the video he posted.

As of Wednesday morning, 15 dogs have been found shot to death. The Greenville News reports Laurens County Animal Control supervisor Giles Gilmer stated it’s “nothing but pure evil.” Recovered were 13 Chihuahuas and two larger dogs. The bodies of the bigger dogs were more decomposed than the Chihuahuas and may not be related to the egregious animal cruelty scene found the previous day.

The bodies of the dogs were found on several different roads. First authorities discovered a pile of five dogs, then two piles of four more dogs and then the two larger dogs.

Authorities are following several leads. Animal cruelty leading to the death of an animal is a felony and if found guilty the accused can face up to five years in prison. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (864) 984-4967 or Crimestoppers at 68-CRIME.

    OMG: I am sick inside for these precious little treasures who were murdered…..

    Could they have been listed on Craig’s List as “free to good home”…… & were taken by this killer??? Or could they have been “excess breeding stock disposed” of by a backyard puppy mill???

    RIP precious little treasures…… I am heartbroken for your murders. You all deserved to be beloved family members and live long lives….. you absolutely did NOT deserve to die “as entertainment” for this POS who murdered you …… you didn’t deserve what happened to you. Please look for MacKitty in Heaven and he will introduce you to his wonderful snuggle buddies……

    The POS who murdered these treasures is beyond disgusting…. Throw him in prison and lose the keys….. I know that anyone who is intentionally cruel to a furbaby will burn in Hell forever for their cruelty…… hope they get there ASAP……. after suffering a terrible death alone and afraid…..

    15 dead dogs all shot to death – sounds like a puppy mill operator to me – unable to birth anymore so they dump them like trash. Hopefully, someone will step up and turn this bastard in – they need to pay dearly for their cruelty.

    Sounds like an unscrupulous heartless breeder getting rid of their breeding dogs or a POS killing who hates dogs and/or chihuahuas especially that someone owned or this POS is doing this for revenge against someone they know. I hope and pray the police catch this POS quickly. R.I.P. all your poor sweet dogs. May you run free and play in Rainbow Heaven.

    The title made my heart sink.

    The rest of the story made me sick.

    5 years isn’t nearly enough for this. Whether it was a puppy miller ridding himself of his ‘stock’ (probably was), or something else, this BASTARD /POS needs to be eradicated from the planet!

    Below subhuman thing that did this. What is wrong with people in this world? It seems everyone has lost all sense of right and wrong and do whatever suits their warped minds. I am sure someone knows about this and wonder if it was a puppy mill owner who couldn’t sell these dogs and did this. Regardless of reason, this is the most disgusting thing that could be done to any dog. Hope they find the scum who did this and do the same to them.

      I agree at least 5 years for each murder unless they let us execute everyone involved! That would be my first option! Whoever did this is an extreme danger to society!

    I have Chihuahuas and this breaks my heart. I’m gonna pray the rabid maggot is caught by someone other than the authorities and dealt the most fitting justice because our fubar legal system will do nothing. People say to me that I should have faith in the legal system, that it’s a good system! Oh yeah it’s good — good for nothing and no good. I hope somebody finds this maggot and shoots them dead.
