Justice for Family Dog Gutted and Hung From Fence


Target: William J. Ihlenfeld, II, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of West Virginia

Goal: Demand that the person who butchered a dog and hung him from his family’s fence receive the maximum penalty possible.

A husky dog was kidnapped, gutted, and hung from his family’s gate in a horrific case of animal cruelty. The dog disappeared from a run line just days earlier. Demand that justice is served for this innocent dog.

A West Virginia family was horrified when their 15-year-old son found their beloved dog, Ryu, hanging by the neck from their gate. The smell of his rotting flesh permeated their home. Ryu had been gutted and butchered, likely suffering considerably before his death.

The person responsible for this gruesome act is still at large. The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Department is investigating this case and the Humane Society of the United States is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of this criminal. Sign below and demand that the person convicted of this horrific act receive the maximum penalty possible.


Dear U.S. Attorney Ihlenfled,

A dog was taken from a family and killed in a gruesome act of animal cruelty. Their 15-year-old son found the dog hanging by the neck from their fence, gutted like a deer. Take a stand against animal cruelty and seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Ryu, a 6-year-old husky, disappeared from a run line two days earlier. His body was found just 50 yards away from his family’s front door, cut from the sternum down and tied with a nylon rope.

Police are investigating but don’t have any suspects at this time. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
