Dozens of dogs? Here’s a thought, Love your pets, keep them contained and stop them from barking. Free roaming pets pose a danger to humans, can pack together and take down wildlife and farm animals.

I wonder if there is any relation to the FBI’s recent “successes”. Perhaps a certain mental/cult/radical/extremist is responsible.

That’s nothing. If the want to see lots of dead dogs, hundreds, maybe thousands of them, go to the nearest animal shelter or PETA pet rescue and check out the incinerators.

101dmax: EXCUSE ME???? If you actually do some RESEARCH, something I’m certain you never bother to do, you’ll find this is much more in character with YOUR kind, i.e., Bill Frist (cat killer), George W. Bush (frog exploder) et al.

Shame on you for making this about POLITICS, when this is clearly the work of a violent sociopath: which, I might also add, some people might say is also indicative of people who’d take food out of the mouths of the poor.

The person doing this needs to be found, and you’re not going to do it by looking at their party affiliation. You MIGHT want to look at someone who’s throwing UNWARRANTED suspicion at others, though…….

this should be seen as a serious threat to public safety: anyone who can do such things to animals can certainly do also to humans. probably with more satisfaction. there should be a serious effort (roadblocks, manhunts, etc) by multiple law-enforcement branches to catch this person.

I don’t actually care what happens to the “perp” – as long as they are not able to continue and escalate. OTOH, the venom in some of the other comments is, itself, concerning. doing more violence in the name of revenge is not moral – our goal should always only be to stop and prevent.

Who could kill innocent animals like that? Only another animal, wait, not another animal because most dogs are nicer than most people. I think this is part of Satanic ritual. These sicko’s need to be caught and dealt with harshly. Poor dogs. Keep your pets locked up.

I use to live in Idaho and this activity happened in the Spirit Lake and Athol areas where there was known to be devil worshipers as they were called.
Sightings of cowl clothed people in the woods chanting around bon fires.
Alters found in the woods. Animal skulls hanging from vines.(these I have personally seen in the woods, with bones, feathers and other stuff stuffed in the sockets and such.)

People have reason to worry.

People should be keeping their dogs inside, not in a crate, until these perverts are caught. Animal control could have necropsies done on the dogs to determine any cause of death. I hope that they catch him quickly, should encourage people in the area to use video security cameras as well. It is pretty easy to profile a guy like this, so I hope that they are working with law enforcement for what to keep an eye out for.

I hope they catch this guy soon. Animal control officers aren’t used to dealing with killing on this scale. I hope they put together a task force with some detectives and forensics people. Some people might say its only dogs but whhoever is doing this sounds very dangerous and we could expect them to possibly escalate to harming people.

Really… that’s the best reward the HSUS could come up with is $5k? They are a huge organization bringing in roughly $130 million a year, much of which comes from people who were duped by their commercials into thinking most of the money would go to helping cats and dogs, not not to pay lawyers and lobbyists for humane treatment of livestock and wildlife.

These animal cruelty cases which seldom get solved are a chance for them to actually put their money where it could really save the lives of companion animals. They should offer a reward that’s substantial enough to make it hard for this monster’s confidants to not rat him out, even if they’re family.

But it isn’t surprising they’re being tight on the old purse strings given how it’s just to stop a killer of pets from continued brutality and not trying to change the way chicken farmers keep their birds from pecking each other to death.
