This just makes me sick

Milford (WTNH) _ A disturbing case of animal cruelty has a Milford pet owner mystified and his small dog recovering from a vicious attack that took place just steps from his home.
The attack happened early Sunday morning around 1 a.m. when Jack Vernon let his dog Sparky outside before going to bed. That's when he says two teenagers, a boy and girl, tried to kill his dog.
"I just sat down, about two minutes later, I hear hee hee hee, laughing and giggling, I said, what the heck are kids doing out this time of night? I go out there and they ran down the street," Vernon explained.
When Vernon went outside he made the disturbing discovery - his 11-year old Pekinese-Pomeranian mix had been slashed with a knife.
"He was gashed all the way from the back, all the way down the front and then the top, they must've stuck him with the knife and then they cut him over the ear and all the way down almost to the jugular vein," Vernon said.
One cut is 14 inches long and the wounds criss-cross over his back and around his ear. After undergoing surgery to literally stitch him back together he now has three drainage tubes inside and is on a whole host of medicine. Still, Sparky's lucky to be alive.
"The vet says, another half-inch and he would've died, he would've bled to death in a matter of minutes," Vernon said.
Vernon says he can't imagine why someone would attack a small, defenseless animal. He is offering a $300 reward to help find who did this to his dog.
If you have any information, you're asked to call the Milford police department.
I hope the authorities find the two little #(&$^#(*'s involved in this and the judge gives them the harshest sentence possible. How can a kid be so callous so young? Future Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold types?

Future murderers often start with small beginnings. These two miscreants seem well on their way. And their parents probably don't have the first clue.

someone gutted my friend's dog last year. The dog is doing alright now...but people who do this deserve to die.

Sounds like the start of a couple of serial killers. Bad stuff.

I agree...this is very true...if one looks at the history of many serial killers and other troubled (crazy) individuals...they always seem to start dong nasty things to animals...sad people, indeed...who should not be using up O2...OMO

My childhood dog was shot by some idiot walking through the alley behind our house. Dog was secured in our backyard, they shot through the 6ft fence. I'm all for hanging these serial killers-to-be.

Maybe not the nicest thing to say in the morning
But because laws in most states about animal cruelty and things like what happened to this man's dog. I just say that he should be able slice them just like they did to his dog. Take them to get stitched back up, drain tubes and all. Then stand trial, so they can get their slap on the wrist.
Sorry for the rant, just hate when I hear about things like this.
Little better now

first to jump in my mind was Dahmer...
they need to be caught and taken care of... lots of psychiatric care... (EST might be a good start)

That's awful. As for how can kids be so callous so young - they have no parents and are raised by the government. No morals, no standards.
December 22nd, 2007 01:22 PM
ugh that just makes me sick.
i hope someone teaches those kids right from wrong, cuz obviously their lack of parents isnt.

I am afraid I also have the ''eye for an eye'' thinking .... let the perp's suffer what they dished out, it just perhaps might have some effect on the cowardly sociopaths.

Sickening that we have mentalities like this in society.

Disgusting. I hope the perpetrators are found, convicted, and then put in "general population," telling everyone what they did.
