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.
