The horrible death

Charges

    I hope she gets put away for a long time without food or water and see how well she does with that. This girl has a screw loose! Society does not need people like her running loose.

    She needs to starve to death and tie her up outside when degrees drop below 32..no jacket, boots, gloves, etc. Let’s see how long it will take her to die

    I have had it will vile monsters who do this and do not get punishment that fits the crime. This mother and daughter need to feel the pain this poor dog felt. Just left the dog there and never fed it? Too lazy to take Ace to a shelter and just dump him there saying you found him? Was Ace tied up on the porch or could he have wandered to other homes to get food? Neighbors never saw Ace just there on the porch withering away to nothing and no one did anything? God help up with all the scum that is in this country. We are concerned about illegals coming here and doing crimes when we have our own legal Americans who do this to animals and don’t blink an eye. Throw this pair in a pit and cover them up with dirt and let them die.

    My first thought was why was a 17 year old living on her own, where were the parents? Then I see the mother is no better. Please take the child away from these two or it could suffer the same fate as the dog.
