Three members of a family in Fort Bend County, Texas, have been arrested and are facing charges after their dog was found dead after being hanged by a wire cable at their residence. According to the Houston Chronicle, the people facing charges for the dog’s death are Juan Javier Lopez, age 41, Maria DeJesus Lopez, age 41 and Alejandro Lopez, 18.

According to the authorities, the family failed to check on the dog for three days and the dog died after getting tangled in the wire tether. The investigators also determined that the dog had been deprived of food and was emaciated.

Sgt. Stacy Schuelke, an investigator for the animal crimes task force, stated:

The dog got tangled up in the wire so that it was around his back legs and ended up suspending him from the wire so he couldn’t touch the ground.


“The dog was thin and going hungry,” Schuelke said, “They hadn’t paid any attention to it.”

When questioned, the family admitted that they hadn’t checked on the dog for three days. Nobody is sure how long the dog was caught up in the wire before dying – it was his legs which were tangled and he likely suffered greatly before finally passing away.

The family members are charged with one count (each) of misdemeanor cruelty to a non-livestock animal.

    Why is it that the owners of emaciated animals are always fat f*cks? And they admitted to 3 days of ignoring the dog. How many days was it ,really? Lord, I know I shouldn’t, but I hate people who abuse animals and only wish the worst possible punishments to befall them.

    When white Americans continue to SEE people of color doing SO MUCH abuse, torture, raping, and starving of innocent animals and even THEIR OWN CHILDREN…they come to the ONLY conclusion that make sense. In order to stop these VILE THUGS who prey on innocents, WE MUST KEEP THEM FROM COMING IN TO THE COUNTRY. THIS IS WHY SO MANY GO AGAINST YOU REMEDIAL TWITS WHEN THEY GET IN POWER. Better clean up YOUR OWN CRAP before bashing others for wanting to KEEP YOU OUT of the U.S. Seems the ONLY thing they were interested in was keeping their fat heads in the feed bag! Damn, this IS disgusting!

      Wow, Diana. Seems like you only pay attention to the non-white animal abusers and turn a blind eye to the numerous animal-abuse cases perpetrated by your precious White People that I see reported on the news and social media EACH AND EVERY DAY. You are the most disgusting person I’ve ever come across on this site. GFY, you maggot.
