A CAUSE SUCH AS THIS IS EASY TO FOLLOW WHEN THEY DO SUCH CRUEL THINGS AS THIS TO AN INNOCENT ANIMAL. MY PETS ARE LIKE CHILDREN TO ME. I WON'T SEE THEM HARMED. AND THIS IS A TRAGEDY. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD?

whats wrong with this world is that humans live on this planet...

Exactly...what's wrong with these people....It's definitely a symptom of a much bigger problem in our society. It's disturbing. I love animals, have a beautiful puppy, but I'm not willing to send out the firing squad. I'd like to get more details, and not react in anger. It does anger me, and it's a horrible thing, but let's get all the facts. Should we drag their dead bloody bodies through the streets ranting and raving like some countries have done. Seriously?

Jimmy Benham No, but let's get them out of the streets as soon as possible. They don't need to be on the streets to determine what is wrong with society. I can only imagine the suffering of that trusting little soul while he encountered these evil men with nothing better to do than torture animals!

LMAO...Immuna just ease outta this one if I possibly can an head to safety. I must admit, I get quite passionate about people mistreating animals...and, since I dont wanna get draggged through the streets myself, ......(my stance) I'll get the rope...you find the tree! Usually am fairly stubborn, but gotta change my stance on this one in the interest of seklf-preservation. I LMAO @ Lexe's comeback....after so deliberately trying to be the voice of reason on my comment, she replies YES....Awesome

Jimmy Benham Yes!!! I like the, lets drag their dead bloody bodies through the streets thing!!! Do you somehow think that the puppy deserved it because of something he had done??? I do agree with you! I don't think we should send out a firing squad, I think we should torture them first!!! Michael Vick got away! We need to make these guys PAY!!!!

These men are demon possessed in their soul by serving satan taking drugs and listening the voice of satan in satanic music. They deny God and the Lord Jesus Christ, so their minds are tqken over by satan. They choose to be evil and serve the destroyer and they did it well. Unless they repent and change they will spend eternity in Hell and then cast into the lake of fire and receive punishment nonstop forever. Satan hates people and pets. the pets are precious and have a mind, feelings and...

Satan hates people and pets. the pets are precious and have a mind, feelings and emotions just as God created them and are very smart. They are made to love and they give love back unconditionally! Just like Jesus!

I don't believe in god and I would never EVER hurt an animal. Just because someone listens to hard core rock (ie. death metal/speed metal/ etc..) and doesn't believe in god does not mean that they have no concious and don't know a thing about right and wrong. These men are disgusting, vile and such a waste at life. This is a problem with mankind, no animal would ever EVER torture something so brutally for no reason, like these to MEN did. Only mankind can do such heinous act.

  • Carol Voss

Kay RecklessYoung It should be our own morals and values and common sense to know it's not right to kill another, whether it's an animal or a person. We don't need a book to tell us such things. It's fine to have faith I have no problem with anyone who has faith in something but to think that non believes have no morals or values as to what is right and wrong is not a very nice thing to think of another.

People from various backgrounds--book or not--some have really religious backgrounds. I think it sounds like you are both basically saying the same thing, only one has relied on religion while the other has not. Sorry no offense to anyone---I think we can all agree that we all love animals here or we probably wouldn't be here.

Krystal Zacher

Elena Ellen Rodentia Garrison Yes we can definitely agree on that. I think in all religious books say that we should not kill, I'm almost positive on that for at least the religions that people follow now a days. This puppy needs justice, honestly since I read this I haven't been able to stop thinking about how much suffering and pain that puppy must have went through. It's breaks my heart to hear that people could do such a thing to an innocent happy little creature. I think this crime...

It's breaks my heart to hear that people could do such a thing to an innocent happy little creature. I think this crime should be considered torturous and with intent and they should get the same penalty as someone would get if they did this to a human instead of a poor little puppy.

it had nothing to do with the act, i was referring to the response. joan thats a fallacy, i never even hinted that i agree. i think that people make bad situations worse by being hateful. take a logic 101 class and then check yourself.

In case you didn't get that the first time, you're garbage.You're one of those pretentious sociopaths who try to make up for your inability to feel sadness or empathy by spouting off at the mouth about rehabilitating vicious criminals I bet. Is it possible you can understand those criminals more than the victims? Hope those wikipedia articles describing cult behavior and odd social phenomena help you get by in accepting your own immorality, and you know exactly what I mean.

What is insaine is the fact that the court system would even consider a plee of insanity. When ever a dog attacks a human the courts don't have any insanity plee for the dogs actions (What would you say my dog was insaine)? they have no problem putting our animals down. so there should be no question that when a human attacks an animal the justce should be the same. TIT FOR TAT Put those M-Fers down like the dogs they are. ACTUALLY MY BAD DOGS ARE BETTER THAN THEY ARE.. Lets do to them...

I have not seen much, if any change in Animal Rights and Welfare. This sickens me and I want to see a change befor I am gone. Thank you for helping. I have been bombarding OHIO's Representatives with phone calls and email. EVERYONE accross the USA needs to do this. Most people never get in touch with our politicians. I am still trying to get in to see President Obama.

June McWilliam If you can hurt someone, then the same thing that has driven those men to do that you may probably be suffering too. Negative things happen so we can see this kind of behaviour happening and say no to it. Collectively and spiritually when enough people say no it will have to change. We create the world we live in. Let go of your anger and bring love back into your life. Sure sign a petition for this, write to the Legal System, join an animal cruelty society but please son't...

No way you horrible horrible nasty cruel *******! What goes around comes around Mr Blake! I hope the biggest meanest dog bought at a yard sale in hell, finds you and shows you just how its done! It also probably annoy you to know that once an animal is in shock of fear or through pain it's nervous system closes down and automatically send it into a coma, so that puppy wont have felt all of the pain and suffering you wanted it to, just maybe 5 seconds of fear and then it wouldn't have felt a thing! How do you like those apples!

I cannot believe how much animal cruelty there is all over the world. This poor puppy. People this insane use to get a lobotomy. Remember the movie One Flew Over the Cookoo's Nest? This seems like a fit punishment for them if they plea insanity.

News of the torture to this innocent puppy literally made me sick to my stomach. Whoever committed this act needs to be incarcerated for life - NO PAROLE - no two ways about it, this is murder in the most horrific way, and should be judged as such! There are far too many Michael Vick's in the world and the time has come for them to be separated from society.

I agree, but chances are execution would never happen and they would be on death row in basic isolation from the majority of prisoners and still costing a fortune. I say, "feed them to the wolves."
