    This is how serial murderers get started. First on small defenseless animals then people. I suspect he has done this before, just not caught…..

    He is a lost soul. Hope he enjoys prison and then burning in the hottest part of Hell forever for his cruelty…..

    Poor precious little treasure puppy and the others murdered by this POS, your lives mattered and I hope you get justice for your murders……. Please look for MacKitty and join his wonderful snuggle buddies group and RIP amongst loving friends.
