57 Brutally Massacred Dogs Deserve Justice

King_Shepherd via Lady Shayna

Target: Searcy County Sheriff Joey Pruitt

Goal: Punish those responsible for the poisoning and shooting of 61 dogs to the fullest extent of the law.

Several dozen dead dogs were recently found in the Searcy County, Arkansas woods. Two men from a logging company stumbled upon the scene, which included not only dead, bullet-riddled corpses, but a few live animals that were shot and left to die. A search of the area by police and Searcy County Humane Society staff revealed 57 dead dogs and four live ones, one of which had to be euthanized due to its extreme injuries.

Investigators suspect that the dogs were poisoned until they were immobilized, and then shot. According to Searcy County Sheriff Joey Pruitt, no dogs have gone missing from the immediate area. Some suspect that the dogs could be from an animal hoarder’s home, fighting rings, or a failed puppy mill operation. According to officials, the perpetrator of this crime could face felony animal cruelty charges.

Humane society staff are still trying to rescue the surviving dogs by luring them with food. They are skittish around humans, getting up to run away despite massive injuries. One of the survivors, a male, is currently at the shelter recovering from a bullet wound to the shoulder and will soon be ready for adoption.

In order to stop these barbaric killings, it is imperative that police and animal welfare investigators work together to quickly apprehend the person or people responsible. Due to the shocking severity of the crime, the perpetrator should be punished to the full extent of the law. Sign the petition below to demand that the sheriff file felony charges against this brutal murderer.


Dear Sheriff Joey Pruitt,

Recently, the bullet-riddled bodies of 57 dogs were found in a remote area of Searcy County forest. The dogs are believed to have been poisoned before they were shot in order to render them immobile. Four dogs were found alive, though one was euthanized due to its poor health. As there have been no reports of stolen dogs, it is suspected that the dogs may have come from the home of an animal hoarder, a failed breeding operation, or even a dog fighting ring.

This crime is incredibly shocking due to the sheer number of animals killed. In order to stop the person responsible from killing more animals, it is imperative that they are found as quickly as possible. We, the undersigned, urge you to pursue the harshest possible charges against the perpetrator of this barbaric crime.

  1. “Due to the shocking severity of the crime, the perpetrator should be”…hung, drawn & quartered! The saddest part is, these kinds of brutal massacres occur ALL the time, in all sorts of places, whenever such lowlife humans decide whatever animals are no longer serving any purpose for THEM, or they’ve become a perceived ‘nuisance,’ and to hell with the animals’ own lives, OR the sanctity of same. It’s these despicable HUMANS who ought to be done away with! Who needs scum like THAT in this world?! And just another lesson to all — don’t take the chance that a BREEDER may be such a perp -> ONLY adopt animals through reputable Rescue organizations, thereby putting all breeders out of business altogether!

  2. praise the Lord for the judgment to come on these obnoxious sh—

    There are many animal tortures found in this Searcy
    County, Arkansas. I have decided I need to remember these stories and petitions I have signed. The last was of live dogs being skinned and burned for the sake of torture.The dogs had been on facebook and offered for adoption to good homes and were later found “in the woods” fine people live here huh? Obviously. What excuses will these citizens offer when caught?We should keep an eye on Searcy County And perhaps all of Arkie Saw.
