Justice for Puppy Thrown Into Burning Fire Pit

Target: Scott Kolody, Commanding Officer of the Manitoba RCMP

Goal: Find and punish children accused of throwing a dog into a fire.

Police are looking for the people responsible for throwing a dog into a fire pit, causing severe burns. According to Katie Powell, founder of Save a Dog Network Canada, a group of children took the dog, an 8-month-old puppy named Polo, and threw him into a fire pit in Red Sucker Lake First Nation, Manitoba. She went on to say that Polo “came home with smoke bubbling from his nose. He had second degree burns on anything that wasn’t covered in fur.”

The poor dog had patches of fur missing as well as some blisters. Some of the dog’s fur melted into his skin, causing lesions. His nose, paws, mouth, and other areas were raw and severely damaged, and his eyes were left with ulcers from smoke damage. Investigators say that the pup’s fur saved his life — if he had a shorter coat, he would have died.

Fortunately, he survived the ordeal and is now recovering at the Tuxedo Animal Hospital in Winnipeg, Manitoba. RCMP are currently investigating, but have not made any arrests. Rights group PETA is offering a $5,000 reward to anyone who comes forward with information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible.

This act was blatantly cruel and could have resulted in the death of this innocent animal. Because of this cruelty, Polo will suffer for a long time, and may have lifelong disabilities. Sign the petition below to demand that the people responsible for this horrendous act are punished to the fullest extent of the law.


Dear Mr. Kolody,

A dog was recently thrown into a fire pit, allegedly by a group of children. The dog suffered severe burns to his entire body, particularly his eyes, nose, mouth, paws, and testicles. Investigators say that he would have died if he had a short coat — his fur protected him from a lot of damage but also melted into his skin, causing lesions.

This horrendous act caused extreme suffering to an innocent animal, and could even result in disability or chronic pain for the rest of Polo’s life. We, the undersigned, ask that you work hard to find and punish the people responsible for this heartless act of cruelty.

  1. Even “children” need to be punished, especially mean-spirited ones.

  2. Daniela Bress says:

    Best and ONLY way to stop human trash from torturing animals:

    taking them to a public place and doing EXACTLY the same to those sick individuals!

    • I agree. It’s too out of control. Too many petitions. It should be automatic they face severe punishments.

  3. Public flogging should be brought back for these disgusting children. Fine their parents, make them go to weekend schools to learn about animals and if all this has no effect – lock the little bastards up and throw away the key.

  4. Annemieke says:

    These little scumbags need to be euthanised, and their parents too!

  5. Find these kids. Hopefully, their conscience will cause them to admit their wrongs before Karma finds them.

  6. Michal Rosenthal says:

    These kids will grow up to be murderers if nothing’s done about it!

  7. These psychopaths should be tried as adults. So callous and cruel. This poor innocent puppy. Some days, I’m glad I have no children. Sure, I could have a good child ….but that’s leaving it to chance. I’d rather be a fur mom. The hate in the world is out of control. I would’ve never fathomed this as a child.

  8. While I agree this absolutely horrible…..the children should be punished…some of the comments on here are awful also, as to what should happen to the children..

    I hope the little sons of bitches rot in hell❗️😠

    I had to look far & Wide to TRY & Find anyone I could email about this, ANOTHER Severe CRIMINAL ACT of Animal CRUELTY & ABUSE. Here’s WHY I ALWAYS Try to Contact SOMEONE in CHARGE or who CAN Do ANYTHING in FINDING & PUNISHING those who DO CRIMINAL ACTS like these. While these KIDS OR More like BEASTS, what ever their AGE, does NOT MATTER..what DOES MATTER IS They WILL DO SAME & WORSE to ANY Who ARE HELPLESS, Defenseless, & unable to TELL or Scream for Help. This includes NOT Just ANIMALS, this ALSO Means SAME For ALL BEINGS< including CHILDREN, Homeless, & Handicapped. Remember these CRIMES & Disgusting COWARDLY ACTS Will BE REPEATED..Next time, it could be YOUR CHILD, YOUR FAMILY, or YOUR ANIMAL..These BEASTS With NO Conscience, NO Morals, NO Respect, & Zero COMPASSION OR A SOUL For that matter..WILL Continue to COMMITT More CRIMES..Until they ARE STOPPED..& Removed From Society. ALL KILLERS begin with ANIMALS & Every ONE IS A COWARD, because they ONLY PREY on those who CANNOT DEFEND, HELP or TELL To Save themselves or TELL Someone, ANY ONE Who Could HELP them. REMOVE These SOUL-LESS, COMPASSION-LESS, CONSCIENCE-LESS Beasts from YOUR SOCIETY, or OTHERS Will SUFFER, Others WILL Become VICTIMS. Those YOU Love Can ALWAYS BE NEXT.
