Emaciated Deceased Dog Dumped in Ditch Deserves Justice

Target: Macon County Sheriff Jim Root
Goal: Find person responsible for deceased emaciated dog who was dumped in ditch.

The images of a severely emaciated deceased dog caged in its crate and dumped in a ditch are shocking. Authorities were called out to Sawyer Road in Decatur, Illinois when they received reports of this horrific crime scene.

Upon arrival at the scene, agents from the Macon County Animal Control and Care Center were greeted with a truly tragic scene. A brindled larger breed dog (as of yet, unidentified) was found severely emaciated and malnourished. The poor animal was found dead and locked up it a crate, tossed on its side in a ditch.

Officials have not yet determined the dog’s cause of death or the owner’s identity.

    I would leave the bastard in a crate in the dump Jail the bastard

  2. People need to be held accountable.

  3. I will be so happy if one day laws for crimes against animals will be so severe that people will think twice before getting a pet. If I was in charge it would be an eye for an eye situation when it comes to cruelty against animals. I’m so fed up that I wish I could be part of a vigilante group to go after these monsters.

    • Kate
      I agree with you 100%! The laws are not strict enough for them to give it a second thought! All they get is a slap on the hand, what good is that? The laws protecting animals are a joke! Need to start a petition for those to be changed now!

      I’d be in that same vigilante group, Kate! Animal abusers/killers get off way too easy and they’re never, ever prosecuted like they should be. I’m the eye for an eye person when it comes to animals (and children). We let a guy rent a mobile home from us where I had 3 cats. He said he loved cats but about 2 months later, 2 of them were outside and he said they got out of the dryer vent (the vent had a cover with tiny holes so that was a blatant lie). I threw him out that day and told him if I didn’t find my cats he’d see me, a taser, a tree and a Karma bat. I did find my cats but still have regrets about not following through.

      • Identical treatment for the monster that perpetrated this heinous crime once convicted beyond a shadow of a doubt!JUSTICE!!!

    • Diane+johnson says:

      I agree with you thoroughly Kate!! I’m with you all the way!!!! I couldn’t have said it better!!!!

    • I feel exactly the same way. I hope the bastard that did this suffers!!!

    • Maria Betancourt says:

      Same here…2000 . % !!!

    • Animal vigilante says:

      You are preaching to the choir Kate!! I’m in full agreement with you. Who on this earth EVER DECIDED HUMAN LIVES WERE MORE VALUABLE THAN ANY OTHER LIFE?? HECK, HUMANS DONT EVEN VALUE HUMAN LIVES!! HUMANS ARE INSUFFERABLY ARROGANT, NARCISSISTIC, DESTRUCTIVE. THEY DISGUST ME. Not all humans are bad. Thankfully there ARE good humans but they are few. I am obsessed with the idea of a band of people that would work in unison to avenge the neglect, abuse, torture and murder of defenseless animals. This being necessary SINCE IDIOT HUMANS HAVE DECIDED ANIMAL LIVES *HAVE NO VALUE* AND THESE ARROGANT, IGNORANT LOSERS ***REFUSE*** TO DO THEIR JOBS AND ENACT LAWS FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE. ANIMAL ADVOCATES’ RIGHTS AND BELIEFS MATTER TOO!! IT’S A FACT MOST OF THESE HORRIFIC ABUSERS GO ON TO ABUSE, TERRORIZE AND MURDER BABIES, CHILDREN, WOMEN AND MEN. THEY DO IT GECAUSE THEY GET A SLAP ON THE WRIST. I FIRMLY BELIEVE IF THERE WERE A COVERT GROUP OF PEOPLE WITH SPEC OPS TRAINING, WHO COULD MANAGE TO PULL OFF MAKING THESE SCUM “DISAPPEAR” AND THEN MAGICALLY TURNING UP SO HORRIFICALLY MANGLED/TORTURED SO AS TO GRAB THE ATTENTION OF ALL, IT MIGHT MANAGE TO SCARE THE BEJESUS OUT OF ENOUGH SCUM ANIMAL ABUSERS IT WOULD STOP THEM IN THEIR TRACKS. IM VOLUNTEERING FOR THE TORTURE PART. HAPPILY. I COULD SLEEP WELL AT NIGHT KNOWING I WAS MAKING THE WORLD A SAFER PLACE. DEAD SERIOUS HERE.

      • Good on you!,
        I and thousands more feel just the same.
        Someone somewhere must know of this bastard through the grapevine and maybe know where he lives.
        The law (what fucking law?.?) does nothing because it could not give a shit about animal suffering.
        It is going to come down to us ‘normal’ people’ to take care of these nasty animal torturing shitbags once and for all as the judicial system will not and cannot be bothered. Just another animal with no feelings so does not matter. Uncaring bastards all of them.
        People power IS going to prevail, of that I am very sure.
        The bastard must live somewhere and hopefully he can be found and dealt with accordingly.

      • Animal Vigilante, you are speaking my language!! I’d be so down with the torture part. You can have one half of the body and I’ll take the other. I’m not even kidding. The thought of going crazy one of these bastards gives me the chills.

  4. Excuse my language
    What the fuck is wrong people!!!
    If u do not want ur pet take it to an a imal shelter stop treating the dogs like they do not have feelings..
    Poor dog rest in piece now my Lil angel 😞

  5. This person needs to die! Names need to be posted ASAP!

  6. I’m so sorry beautiful I’m so sorry whoever did this to you let you suffer and die and toss you away like garbage you deserved to be loved fed and live life I’m sorry if it was your owner I’m sure you loved and this monster took your life in a cruel horrific way you deserve justice and I know you in heBen now healed and never be hurt again but you deserve so much more this sick monster needs to be locked up who did this to this beautiful dog! Hope meet you someday in heaven beautiful doggie!! You will get chance someday to tell this monster what they did to you and get what they deserve I wish I knew your name beautiful doggie !!

  7. Donna Giardina says:

    This sickens me! I don’t understand how humans can be so cruel.

    • It’s because they are ‘sick minded’ bastards who treat animals like garbage and require terminating painfully.
      It is going to come down to ‘people power’ to stop these torturing fuckers once and for all and rid the world of these waste of space non caring arseholes!
      Power to any animal protection groups who are thinking the same!

  8. Mitchell Sally says:

    When will these evil people be held accountable? When? When they do something to your dog? To their children? Spouse? If you treat animals this way you also treat humans this way! Let’s stop the madness and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law!

    • They need to make laws that provide for very stiff penalties to safeguard animals. Also agree that people who do things like this are sadistic and pose a danger to those animals and people around them. This is more than just neglect. It is intentional cruelty.

  9. Maria Lavorato says:

    I’m so sad and sorry sweet angel boy…God’s healing for you now!

    Get this savage soulless evil before they go and get another pet to torture.

    Please give this sweet boy his justice. Don’t drop this case!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please find him!!!
    The laws for animals should be the same as for humans. He deserves the same treatment that he bestowed on his beautiful brindle dog!!

  10. Cheryl+Miller says:

    Absolutely disgusting and sad for the poor poor dog!!
    I hope they catch the sicko who did this to the innocent dog!!!

  11. Monstrous monstrous evil, heartbreaking and horrific, karma is theirs – I feel you, poor lost innocent souls; their blood on your souls

    The abuse, torture & murder of the innocents

    Some heartbreaks can never be unseen, some horrors never unheard – PLEASE GOD

    And the universe weeps tears of blood

    Your life as theirs, as their death

  12. This is very not typical of this area. There are a lot of animal ‘dog’ lovers in Central Illinois and I am certain people will speak up and not tolerate the actions of this one extremely demented individual. This would have to be a severely sick and disturbed person who did this to this poor dog, and I know that the humane people in this region will not tolerate this. Whoever knows who is responsible, speak out as someone surely knows something and they need not be scared to tell a shelter manager or an animal humane officer who it is, or who could know who did this.

  13. The laws have to be changed if this is to ever end. This made my heart hurt so bad in my stomach. The poor dog he was probably so abused also besides being starved. This sick sob will just do it again he’s probably done it before also. There is no excuse for this horrible crime against God’s creatures & man’s best friend. This as…hole needs to be found and be punished in prison for many many years and have to do hard labor. Come on judges you have to make the right decision. Please find it in your heart and conscious to do the right thing. Set an example. The laws are a joke & really do need changed now. He probably has his next victim already and will do it again. Please change the laws. All of us people are begging you judges. No living creature should have to endure what this poor beautiful dog went through. He will just do it again please find him and do the right thing. The animals need our help they have no voice of Their Own we have to be the voice for them. HELP!!!!!

    This is so sad. This department needs to find the fucking bastard that did this. They need to put his ass in a crate and leave it outside in cold extreme weather and leave him there til he dies. No other punishment will do for this asshole. Film it so I can watch this guy die a slow miserable death.

  15. I agree with Kate and everyone else. I don’t know how much more of these I can look at, it’s so upsetting. I’m to the point where I sign because I hope it helps, but it just seems endless. And useless. I wish there was such a thing as instant karma, and these motherfuckers would lose a limb, or their own life, or suffer the torture they inflict.

    • Jilly I agree, it really is breaking to read what happens. I hope, wish, all those involved in animal cruelty could get Street Justice that they won’t recover from

      • I am the same, , these heartbreaking stories make me so depressed and people tell me not to read them if they affect me so badly but i have to read so i can sign.please find the sadistic monster who did this and lock them up,would like them to throw away the key too, they are very dangerous.What this poor dog has gone through is unbearable to even think about

  16. I HOPE THE LOW LIFE SUFFERS AND DISAPPEARS FROM THE EARTH SOON!

  17. Joseph Kenosky says:

    Find the person that did this and euthanize them immediately.

  18. Jane nowinski says:

    Someone knows the murderer/s

  19. Elease M. Bradford says:

    I’m so sorry this innocent animal was neglected and died as a result. How could a person who decides to raise a pet, abuse and neglect them? I hope the despicable person who did this is caught and severely punished. RIP fur baby and I hope you get justice.
