    The psychopath who did this needs to be found and locked up in a mental hospital before human beings become targets. Unfortunately, our liberal progressive, weak minded society has turned against the types of punnishments that deterred this sort of cruelty.

    It is beyond belief that amybody could or would do such a cruel and inhumane act against any creature.I hope that they find the monster who did this and prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law.Where is decency and respect for life? It seems to be less and less prevalent in our society ,and that is a very sad commentary .

    OR THE PERSON WHO TORTURED A 6 WEEK OLD PUPPY AND THREW IT IN THE GARBAGE.
