In an unthinkable case of animal cruelty, a brown, medium-sized dog was found wrapped in a garbage bag along the river in Defiance, Ohio. The dog had been tied up at the feet, skinned and decapitated before being tossed into the river like trash.
"The pictures are horrific," wrote Fort Defiance Humane Society on Facebook. "The feeling of not saving this animal is indescribable."
Whoever committed this disturbing act is still walking the streets. And they are a danger to not just dogs, but children and all other residents of the city. Time and time again, it has been shown that those who torture and kill animals move on to human victims next. For the sake of both animals and people, it is imperative that police catch and prosecute the sick individual who committed this brutal crime.
Sign this petition to urge Defiance, Ohio Police Chief Todd A. Shafer to make finding this dog's killer a top priority -- and make it clear that such cruelty to animals will not be tolerated.
