Man Accused of Torturing and Eating Hearts of Dog and Cat Must be Punished

Target: Christopher F. Allred, County Attorney for Weber County, Utah

Goal: Seek justice for dog and cat who were allegedly tortured and killed with baseball bat.

A dog and cat were reportedly tortured and killed in a horrific case of animal cruelty. Per investigators, Bruce Anthony Saunders maimed them both repeatedly with a sharp object and dismembered the cat. Saunders then reportedly claimed that he ate their hearts. Demand justice for these animals and mental health services for this alleged perpetrator, should he require them.

Ogden police arrived at Saunders’ home to a scene seemingly straight out of a horror movie. Called by his former girlfriend after she found him injured, they reportedly discovered a cat and a dog dead in a bathtub, their bodies covered in lacerations and dismembered. A bloody baseball bat was also apparently found at the scene and necropsy results showed that the animals had suffered extensively before death. Per investigators, Saunders severed one of his own fingers just a day before this alleged act of cruelty.

The motive behind this apparent crime remains unclear and, given the nature of the alleged torture, it seems mental illness could have been a factor. Sign below and demand mental health services for Saunders, in addition to punishment should he be found guilty, to ensure no more animals have to suffer this way.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear County Attorney Allred,

Ogden police entered Bruce Anthony Saunders’ apartment for a wellness check and seemingly discovered a bloody and disturbing crime scene. A dog and cat were reportedly found in a bathtub, their bodies covered in lacerations and dismembered. A bloody baseball bat was apparently discarded in the living room. Saunders has a reported history of self-harm and, per police, he claimed that he ate the animals’ hearts.

Saunders has been charged with two counts of third-degree felony torture of a companion animal and one count of class A criminal mischief. In addition to legal consequence, I demand that you seek mandated mental health services, given the disturbing nature of this alleged crime and the suspect’s history of self-mutilation.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. It doesn’t matter if he has a personality disorder, mental illness, label it what you will, his behavior is not justifiable and goes against society’s values.. he is not curable so be done with the POS.

  3. stop human garbage says:

    SOMEONE NEEDS TO DISPATCH THIS PSYCHOPATH BEFORE HE BRUTALLY ATTACKS MORE ANIMALS WOMEN OR CHILDREN!!! HE NEEDS TO BE LOCKED UP OR MORE!

  4. She should have beat him to death with the bat!!
    She should be charged for not telling authorities how mental he was and should not have pets before he did this heinous crime.

  5. Natalie Rodgers says:

    No, put him in jail and leave him there or kill him. He tortured them, while they were no doubt screaming, and continued to desecrate them in death in a manner like unto serial killers. He can NOT be helped and must be put down or contained.

    I refuse to advocate for his mental health. He is a danger to everyone around him.

  6. Gabriela Torres says:

    SON OF SATAN … WHAT ELSE COULD HE BE? HE DESERVED TO HAVE BEEN KILLED ON THE SPOT.

  7. Throw his ass in jail,mental illness or not,we can’t have people capable of this in society

  8. This is very sick. This will happen again. We need stricter laws. Who is next a child? Lock this person up forever.

    Eradicate, exterminate this human monster.

    It’s a pity that Saunders “…..severed one of his own fingers….”. If this sicko had rather severed his own throat and bled out, it would have saved everyone a lot of trouble of an arrest, trial and possible incarceration in a mental home (all paid out of taxpayer’s money). Do we really need sickos like this roaming the streets?

  11. Fry that MF! But before you do torture the waste of oxygen until he is screaming like the little worthless punk I bet that he is. My goodness, make him wish that he was never born.

  12. All animal abusers must have the mandatory death penalty implemented. Prison or fines is not appropriate.

  13. NO EXCUSES!! Mental health? Screw that. He should die. Period. If you would only let us animal lovers take care of these filthy scumbags. We would love to “eye for an eye”. He doesn’t deserve to breathe. I despise animal abusers.

  14. There is absolutely no excuse for this type of vile act. This scumbag needs to be beat, burned and destroyed in the same disgusting way as he did to these innocent beings. Stop enabling these types of pieces of crap by claiming “mental illness”.
