Arrest made in connection with horrible dog skinning video in Warren

In Warren, Ohio, a man was arrested on Saturday afternoon on separate charges although police are investigating the suspect’s connection to a viral dog skinning video released on social media just days ago.

According to Fox News, the unnamed suspect at this time, was arrested for an outstanding warrant on an unrelated case and is currently being held in the Trumbull County jail.  The man from Stark County is alleged to be the person in the video. Warren Detectives Mike Altiere and Brian Crites have been working on the case since Friday evening after the video went viral and animal advocates began calling into authorities.

Reports from people living in the area and acquaintances of the son who posted the video, state this happened months ago and had been reported to police as well as animal control authorities. The son, who owned the dog, wanted everyone to know what his dad and his girlfriend had supposedly done to his pet. It is not known if the pit bull was dead or alive when it was skinned.

The investigation continues; more updates to follow.

Kitten buried alive: Tennessee man charged with animal cruelty

An Erwin, Tennessee man has been charged with animal cruelty after allegedly having buried  alive a six-week-old kitten. Johnny Mack Rogers, 29, was charged with aggravated animal cruelty on Friday after police were notified by the Unicoi County Animal Shelter of the disturbing incident.

According to the Facebook page of the Unicoi County Animal Shelter, the kitten was brought into the shelter one week ago covered in blood and dirt.  He had been rescued from a shallow grave. The facility’s director rushed the kitten to a veterinarian office where emergency treatment was administered.

 “The kitten was brought to me by someone and I immediately took it to Robinson Animal Hospital. I stayed with them and watched a team of them try to save him. His mouth and airways were full of dirt. He constantly gasped for air. They did their very best, but he could not be saved,” the Facebook post stated.

Although veterinarians tried their best to save the kitten they named Warrior, his chances for survival were slim, and if he did pull through, it was feared he would still suffer or succumb due to severe internal injuries.

Rogers is accused of burying the kitten after a person at his home stepped on the kitten while the two had been drinking.

Warrior’s heartbreaking photo has been shared hundreds of times. It is hoped this innocent little kitten will find some justice.

“You all asked and demanded something be done, and I told you I’d make sure he was held accountable. That is going to happen. Our court date is September 20. He is going to be charged with Aggravated Animal Cruelty. That is a felony,” posted the shelter.

“Mark your calendars. I want hundreds of people there. We need to show that this is not acceptable behavior in our community and in society. “

Rest in peace Warrior.

Arkansas man sentenced to 25 years in prison for choking woman and killing puppy

In Bentonville, Arkansas, a 24-year-old man was sentenced to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to choking a woman and killing her puppy.

On Tuesday, Dusten Blake Ward pleaded guilty to domestic abuse and animal cruelty charges dating from October 22, 2017 after Ward choked the woman, smashed her head to the floor and beat her with a metal pipe during a heated argument over a puppy. Ward then hit the 11-week-old  puppy named Dez repeatedly with the metal pipe killing it. The woman was transferred to the hospital for injuries suffered.

 

According to 5NewsOnline, Ward was arrested by Benton County Sheriff’s Office deputies and charged with first-degree criminal mischief, aggravated assault on a family or household member and aggravated animal cruelty — all felonies. The couple reportedly had just become engaged, but it wasn’t long before a plea to adopt a puppy began to swirl around on social media. Many people reached out to help, but the puppy’s owner never replied.  A Change.org petition stated the following:

“On Sunday, October 15th 2017, A newly engaged woman posted desperate pleas on Facebook and Instagram stating that she needed to find a home for her 11 week old puppy. Her posts were vague, but she mentioned that the puppy needed to be gone as soon as possible due to “danger in the house.” Several people commented on her posts, and even directly messaged her with the intent to adopt the puppy. She would not answer anyone’s questions about who was going to harm the puppy, or why the puppy was in danger in the first place…”

Benton County Circuit Judge Brad Karren sentenced Ward to 25 years after he was charged as a habitual offender. He will have to abide by a suspended sentence agreement for 15 years after his release from prison. He also has to pay $1,170 in court costs.

Four dogs found chained to pole in attic in 100 degree heat

In Newburgh Heights, Ohio, police arrested two people on felony animal cruelty charges after four dogs were found chained to a pole and living in what police have described as deplorable conditions. Dion Harris and Jasmine Grays have been charged with felony animal cruelty.

According to the Facebook page for the Newburgh Heights Police, Chief John Majoy stated the city’s housing inspector found the four dogs while inspecting a home on East 53rd Street and contacted authorities.

Two adult dogs and two puppies had been chained to a pole and left in the attic where temperatures exceeded 100 degrees. There was no food or water and the dogs were eating the insulation. All of the dogs have been rescued and are expected to survive. They have been taken to Pepperidge Kennels for care and will be transferred to the Animal Protective League for adoptions.

Many thanks to the Newburgh Heights Building Department for all their help, and of course the police for protecting those who cannot speak for themselves.

Dog shot in the face found lying on doorstep of a home in Hawk Run

In Hawk Run, Clearfield County, Pennsylvania, a four-year-old mastiff, shot in the face at close range, was found lying on the doorstep of a home . It is believed the dog was shot sometime Monday night and Tuesday afternoon.

According to the Facebook page of One Dog at a Time (ODAAT) the organization has taken charge of the dog’s care after the owner surrendered her:

“FOUND SHOT in Clearfield County!!
Dog was found on Whitman Street Hawk Run PA.
This is an active cruelty investigation. We are unable to say anything until we are able to confirm with PSP. This extremely sweet, docile girl we affectionately named Lottie after her finder, will require extensive surgery and will remain inpatient at Metzger Animal Hospital on fluids and pain meds. She was anemic and shocky when she arrived at the vets. She has broken off and shattered teeth that will need removed, as well as a lot of shrapnel that they must retrieve. Any that is left in her face, jaw and neck could become problematic causing infection and she will require more surgeries in the future.”

Rescue volunteer Lynda Lamb transported Lottie to the veterinarian office where the dog underwent surgery and is now recovering.

To help with Lottie’s surgery costs and continued care, donations can be sent by clicking here: www.onedogatatime.us or PayPal donateodaat@gmail.com. Please put “Lottie” in the comments. The mailing address is ODAAT 155 Macintosh Drive Palmyra PA 17078. If you would like to donate to the reward fund for this and other cases like Lottie’s please put “REWARD” in your comments.

Anyone with information is asked to call 717.248.2902.
Get well soon Lottie.

Couple who burned and broke bones of Chihuahua left it in trash bag to die

In Morristown, Tennessee, an animal cruelty case involving a tiny Chihuahua, so disturbing and heartless, led to the arrest of the dog’s owners on Friday. The couple is accused of having tortured the Chihuahua – breaking bones and burning it in addition to failing to provide her with food, water, shelter or care.

On June 7, police were summoned to the home of Joshua Coffey, 35 and his wife Melissa Coffey, 26. Joshua had called authorities to report his wife had killed the family dog. When police arrived they found the dog in a black trash bag still alive. During the investigation, officers discovered the dog had suffered broken bones and had burn marks on her face.

The dog is now under the care of Morristown-Hamblen Humane Society where she is being treated at the Southern Care Veterinary Hospital. On their Facebook page, the Morristown-Hamblen Humane Society posted the following encouraging update on the dog’s condition:

“We appreciate all the calls on the Chihuahua’s welfare from the cruelty case. However, this is an ongoing criminal case and we cannot discuss it. But we can tell you she is safe and under veterinary care and will continue to receive the treatment necessary to improve her health. Any donations would be appreciated for her ongoing medical care that will be expensive. We will update as we can and any questions or concerns please contact the shelter and not the vet.”

Information concerning the Chihuahua’s abuse via Nbc4iNews.

Donations are being accepted to help with the dog’s medical care.
