    Really the dogs may have killed your piglets so you just killed them because you suspected it was them. Animals have never had due process just tortured and executed.

      And animals are innocent. They act on instinct, and can’t be held responsible – the owners are responsible if the dog does damage. And the odds are heavily in favor that the piglets were probably not being raised as family members, but for future slaughter. So, for the pigs, the outcome is the same.

    First, are these scum here illegally? If so doing what they did to both of these dogs is no surprise since they do not value the life of any animal. They both should be in jail and never let out, but we know that will never happen. Stiff fines and some type of jail time for each of these vile monsters need to be given to each of them. Also someone should hang each of them and then beat each of them with a still until they drop to see how it feels.

    Best punishment for those 2 Mexicans would be to hang and beat them with sticks. I am just so appalled to find out how many people murder innocent pets, wildlife…I’m sure if people see how these murderers are tortured and killed same way they did..animal abuse would lessen.

      ???? the laws against abuse of any kind against these defenseless poor helpless animals are simply put:
      PATHETIC !!!!!!!!
      I will never understand why the abused are abused all over again when the WORTHLESS abusers get NOTHING even close done for the AGONY, PAIN, HEART-WRENCHING TORTURE they had “fun” putting innocent souls through

    These sick bastards should be incarcerated for the rest of their lives! They are the scum of the earth and should never be able to associate with the rest of society.

    Hang and bash these vile and evil animal torturing monsters Angel Perez Valencia and Carlos Rivera to death. An eye for an eye. Kill the lowlife pos slowly, also by sticking red hot pockers fair and square up their filthy arse holes until they die. Good riddance to such lowlife animal torturing monsters from hell.
    RIP the two innocent and helpless dogs that these vile and evil psycho monsters tortured to death. These two lowlife pos show no compassion or respect for the innocent animals and these monsters will continue torturing the innocent and precious animals until they are put to death heinously. What these two and any other animal tortuers deserve. Kill them all. Get rid of this filth from our planet. The death penalty should be introduced into Animmal Protection Laws immediately to stop the animal torturing vile and evil psychopathic depraved monsters from hell.
    Unless these Laws are not introduced these psycho lowlife vile and evil animal torturers will continue torturing the precious and innocent animals.

    Why were the dogs running loose? Who did they belong to if they killed their piglets? This is CA so they wouldn’t be allowed a gun to shoot and protect their property. You welcome immigrants, legal and illegal so you get their customs with them. Are you really so sure they weren’t planning on eating them? That was my first thought when it was described how they killed them. It’s what they do. You welcomed them to your state. In any case if dogs were running loose and killing livestock, the owners should be found and held responsible. If it was their dogs, they probably killed them the only way they knew how. Livestock killing dogs are usually shot on sight. As they should be. There’s no cure for that. It’s a shame that those of you commenting don’t seem nearly as concerned about the lives those dogs destroyed.

      First of all, guns are legal in CA, but of course illegal immigrants should not have them, yet they do. But no, the dogs should not have been shot either…they should have proper homes with legal citizens and be protected from lowlives, always.

      “Livestock” would not exist if people were what we claim to be…human beings. I’m vegan and have been for many years and am healthier than ever before in my long life. All the anti-vegan ranting and fear mongering online and elsewhere is pure vested-interest-fueled BS (should say PS for “people”).

      Yeah, illegal immigration has to be put to an end…no country can thrive for long with millions and millions of unaccountable, unidentified non-citizens taking up all the regular jobs and practicing lowly customs like these two “men.”

      Dogs, especially perpetually hungry and/or abused dogs (like so many who are stuck in neighborhoods teeming with illegal immigrants) will be more likely to kill other animals for “fun” or to eat, as dogs are hunters by nature. You say they should be executed for that, while you pretend to have compassion for the piglets who were obviously being raised to be stabbed to death for beer-fueled barbecue pit parties, while backyard animal slaughter is illegal in CA, just like illegal immigration is.

      You blame all Californians for the above, while about half of us are NOT at all to blame. Even more outrageously, you present yourself as the same ilk as those two “men” in your defense of their torturing the dogs to death. That’s why you hate all the comments so much…they make you look in the mirror and feel attacked. Well, it’s more than justified.

    Presumed guilty and executed in a most horrific manner with no opportunity first given to prove innocence, nor it seems any investigation into the alleged “crime”. Sounds like what these two lowlifes need in order for the two dogs’ lives to be accounted for, but we all know that will never happen. Sadly therefore, there will be no justice for the dogs. RIP puppets.

  8. Sue says:

    We have a culture where doing this to dogs is accepted in the military and paramilitary, and dogs have died during what they call “training” or “hard correction.” All of it has to be addressed, even when soldiers and police do it. So far, they’ve gotten away with it. Some officers were taken to court across the pond several years ago, after they strung up a K9 named Acer and hanged and kicked him to death, but even that ended with slaps on the wrist for underlings, the instructors got no punishment, and I’m sure it’s still going on, just like in my department, when they kept on doing it after they announced that they’d stopped.
