A Florida couple is heartbroken following the cruel death of their two dogs, who they say were tortured, including being beaten and burned, before being shot in Baker County just a week ago. Patrick Gagliardo and his fiancée, Jill Holloway, told News Jax 4 that their dogs ran off of their property on June 15 – when they found their bodies two days later, there was evidence that the dogs had been subjected to horrific cruelty.
Gagliardo described what he discovered to the news agency – first recounting Esa the Rottweiler’s body:
I could tell somebody drug her, then lit her face on fire.
He also said that Esa’s legs had been broken.
And Pup-Pup the pit bull mix,
“He had been dragged, and he had been beaten. He was beaten so bad I couldn’t take his collar off.”
On the GoFundMe fundraiser created to establish a reward, the dogs’ owner writes:
My babies weren’t just killed. They were burned, tortured, broken legs, smashed teeth, and shot. Who does such horrible things to someone’s pet. Through donations, I’m offering a reward for info leading to an arrest. This monster needs to be caught!
An update states that a suspect has been identified, but the name hasn’t been released.
