So very sad Debbie but I have a question. What was this pet doing chained outside in East TN (Morristown) on a Thursday in March? Why would these owners who chain a dog outside in the winter and wasn't there snow on Thursday there? I don't know. Perhaps she had a dog house and protection...I don't know. But when a dog is left exposed to the elements and where someone can come along and simply take them sends a message too!

I pray the people who did this are caught and pay. I also be a...

Horrible. I can't imagine the pain to all involved. My babies live inside because they are my family.

Amanda I chain my dog outside long enough for him to go to the bathroom, just because someone chains their dog for 15-20 mins. doesn't make them a bad owner. It's sad that people would do this to anything, If they can do it to an animal they can do it to a person they need to be caught and punished. I aree with throwing them out the window an eye for an eye sounds good to me.

Amanda Pierce Bruscella they left and went out and left her chained. Also she is not spayed and they have commented about having one of her puppies. cruel is also leaving a female outside chained when population is an issue in the U.S. where pets are concerned. I have used a tie out for my dogs when my fence was not yet up, but never would i leave them outside in the yard fenced or chained and leave the property. i live in Ontario and not in winter nor summer are they left.

Thank you for stating the obvious, which I too mentioned in my comment. First of all, why would you chain your dog? If it's for 15-20 minutes for the dog to go to the do its business, it's one thing, but I think this was an all day thing. Also, the weather can be either too hot or too cold. And...besides HUMAN predators, there are wild animals everywhere ~ even where I live ~ smack in the middle of the city. Your pet should be protected like you children. I feel extremely sad for Molly,...

I feel extremely sad for Molly, that she had to face such cruelty. I hope to God they find these monsters and hopefully punish them severely, though it seems the laws are too relaxed when it comes to animal abusers. That's why, human parents need to keep take the precautionary measures. Again, thank you for your comment.

Lesson - never leave a dog chained outside! I hope they don't leave her puppy chained outside - chains are for criminals, not pets you love and say are "family".

I do Yorkie Rescue in Texas. I understand that I am dealing with small dogs that hawks could grab easily but then even large dogs are not safe especially chained outside. I do not feel that these people are bad and do feel for them that they lost their beloved pet. I do feel that perhaps they should have been informed of the dangers of chaining a dog outside when not home and in the importance of spaying and neutering our pets. If someone does not have a fenced yard and has to tie them...

I do not feel that these people are bad and do feel for them that they lost their beloved pet. I do feel that perhaps they should have been informed of the dangers of chaining a dog outside when not home and in the importance of spaying and neutering our pets. If someone does not have a fenced yard and has to tie them outside to potty, they should at least be out there with them. Being in rescue, I hear all the sad stories about lost dogs. People call me crying wanting another dog because their well trained dog that never leaves the property has been killed by a car. The owners also made a remark that the dog was a neighborhood dog, loved by everyone. If she was allowed to run the neighborhood at times, (which I am not sure about that) then, there is a possibility that not all neighbors loved her. It is a very sad situation and I hope they catch the person that did this cruel thing to Molly.

I don't care who you are, if you care about animals, this is wrong. I would hang that person from the highest tree butt free to the world, put little razor slices on them and pour salt over the wounds. The animal did not deserve death. If you don't want a pet, give it to someone that does. It took me almost 2 years to find a home for a dog I was fostering. This just totally tears me up; all I can do is cry and hug my little guy and assure him, he doesn't ever have to worry about that form me, I love him WAY TOO MUCH!

Who ever committed this despicable act of cruelty must be caught and brought to justice. You can hide but you will be found and will face the full force of the Law. It has become obvious to everyone except the law makers that animal cruelty requires more effective strong laws with much more severe punishment than is currently in use. This is long overdue and unless Law makers show some act of decency and show some courage and make these changes to the laws, innocent animals will suffer more...

This is long overdue and unless Law makers show some act of decency and show some courage and make these changes to the laws, innocent animals will suffer more at the hands of criminals and thugs in your society. At present the thugs and criminals are allowed to kill and brutalise animals in such sickening manner and they are getting away with it. You will have a better society in the long term if you make changes to protect animals now.

No reason for this type of behavior, this animal spent years of it's life trusting humans only to have someone do this. They need to be caught and punished! If you live in that area chances are you know the owners of this animal. Do the right thing!
