Dog and puppy dead after man threw them onto interstate

Woman’s dog and puppy dead after man allegedly threw them onto busy interstate

A Michigan woman is mourning the loss of her dog and puppy, who she believes were the victims of an act of heartless cruelty. As reported by WWJ News Radio, Angelica Stewart’s pups, Malachi and Apollo, disappeared after her toddler opened a door and they escaped.

Stewart learned the grim news of her dogs’ fate after receiving word from Taylor Animal Shelter had two dead dogs, collected from the freeway, in their possession. Stewart was told that numerous people reported seeing a man in a black truck dropping the dog and puppy off on Interstate 94.

Karl Ziomek, a shelter spokesperson, stated:

“We have very little on this, what we have this is a driver saw this black vehicle and a person with some dogs running loose onto the freeway. Whether that person let them loose, whether they got loose, who knows. Our PD dispatched an animal control officer out there, by the time the animal control officer got there there was no person, and two dead dogs.”

Stewart broke the news of the dogs’ deaths on her Facebook page, writing:

Update*** dogs found, but unfortunately they were both picked up by a guy in a black truck, who then dropped them off on 94 freeway by telegraph where they were hit and died. If anyone has any information on this guy in a black truck please please contact me

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is asked to call the Taylor Police Department at 734-374-1420.

    Tragic situation. I can’t imagine losing my furbabies in such a horrible manner…… I would be completely hysterical over this type of loss. Possibly could have been prevented with use of baby gates…….

    That toddler needs discipline: should never just open a door because one doesn’t know what’s on the other side of it……

    We used baby gates for both humans and furbabies. For our family, they worked well and everyone was protected. Toddlers were not supposed to open doors (& were disciplined for bad behaviors)…….

      I agree with you, children of today have NO discipline what so ever, My kids never opened doors and let themselves or our pets out when they were small, Where is the supervision? Two dogs lost their lives because a “toddler” wasn’t being supervised!

    I see a story like this and am again appalled at how cruel our society is. Pick up a couple of dogs running loose and then leaving them on the freeway to die! The POS that did this shouldn’t be walking among us. There is a special place in Hell for people like this, may they find their way there soon and rot!

      I agree with you. I don’t understand WHY anyone would think to do this…… that POS has a reserved space in Hell waiting for them……. they will burn forever for their cruelty…..

      I have found dogs and cats and my first thought was to keep them SAFE!!! Then try to locate an owner (or keep them as my pets when I couldn’t find an owner)……..
