A few weeks ago, I wrote about this subject and then just this past week, I got an e-mail from two other concerned dog owners asking me to support them about this kind of behavior on Facebook. I never posted this on my blog, but now I am.


I bet most of the people that are on your Facebook page you don’t even know. I doubt that most of us know the couple of hundred or more people that call us “friends” as friends. I mean can you call anyone of them up at three o’clock in the morning needing help and expecting to hear them say, “I’ll be right over!”

When I joined Facebook, I did so because I wanted to connect with family and friends and perhaps make some new friends. I joined to be entertained and amused and never took it seriously. I considered it light entertainment. I enjoy looking and sharing pictures and videos with my friends. I enjoy reading and posting quotations. What I don’t enjoy looking at or reading about is cruelty to animals! I am repulsed and sickened by the horrific and graphic pictures that some post on Facebook! I did not invite anyone on my Facebook to post such disgusting pictures.

A couple of weeks ago someone felt the need to post a picture of a dog being roasted on an open pit like a suckling pig! I see pictures of dogs used as target practice with their bloody wounds practically bleeding through the page. It's just too much sometimes. Then just a few nights ago when I thought I seen it all, I hadn’t. As I scrolled down the page, imagine my shock and repulsion when staring helplessly back at me was a picture of a German Shepherd (or what was left of him) with half his face blown off! It seems that some perverted kids were looking to have “fun” and decided to stick explosives in this poor helpless dog’s mouth that they so generously duct taped shut! I’m surprised he was still alive……his whole jaw and nose was missing. Obviously he must have been put to sleep as he could never live without these things on his face.

We live in a sometimes very brutal and sadistic world. I know what goes on out there. I read the news or see it on television. I do not need or appreciate seeing these types of graphic photographs on my Facebook page. This person was removed from sending me any more photographs as was the second person that felt the need to post it again last night.

If one feels like they MUST get the word out there about the lowest ones that masquerade themselves as human beings, PLEASE put a WARNING on your subject matter and include a link for those that want to view the photograph. I choose not to look at these types of pictures and would NEVER open a link that warned me about the graphic nature of the subject. But at least I get to choose what I want to look at or not. PLEASE don’t make up my mind for me by sending this type of material through.

Let me tell you how I reacted when I saw the roasted dog. I cried and had a talk to God about the cruelty in the world. I shook my head in disbelief. Now how did I act upon seeing the German Shepherd with half his face blown off? I became hysterical crying and I had to get up and go into the bathroom because I was gagging so badly from the sight of the horrific picture. The dog’s black eye’s stared back at me from the white page with his erect ears still standing tall reminding me that he was still a German Shepherd with only a bloody pulp left where his beautiful nose and mouth once graced his face. What did this poor animal do to deserve this fate? Nothing he could have done could ever have warranted this type of punishment!

I never did read the story because I was too sick to do so. I just read that some kids did this to him. When we live in a society that produces MONSTER’S in children, I say to myself that I don’t belong here. So let’s see now what our law enforcement will do about this? Are they underage kids? Will they get a slap on their wrists? Will they have to do community service for a month or two? Community service? What the hell does that teach them? Go blow up an animal or torture it to death and for your punishment you’ll have to sweep the streets of its debris for a month or two. I’m sure they’ll learn their lesson with that one! Their sorry little butts need to be locked away for awhile with some real hard ass criminals that will teach them a thing or two about what it means to be scared. Just like they scared this dog when they taped his month shut. Oh boy, these kids are lucky they don’t have me as a parent……but then again if I produced kids like this, I’d pick up the mirror and question myself as a parent to begin with! If this case ever went to court (I doubt it), these kids would never want me on the jury. I’d do everything in my power to make sure that they “reaped what they sowed!”

Until our laws change and take animal abuse more seriously, we will be rubbing elbows with the future menaces to society. Animal abuse is the first step in the serial killers demonic “rap sheet!”

So once again if I see anymore of these disgusting pictures, I will delete the people that are responsible for posting it. I know we live in a sometimes cruel, cold world, but there is also many good things going on in it as well. I choose to read about those things. Let me have a choice as to what it is I want to read and see. Put a WARNING on your post so I know to avoid it!

My rating: 1 - 4 depending.....


  1. I'm totally in agreement with you on this. I saw that photo too and it was so repulsive you can't get it out of your mind. How any human being could do that is beyond my comprehension. It just keeps reoccurring in my head. The culture of our society has to change and people who do things like this to any animal need to be treated so harshly that if they are inclined to even think about doing it again they will be discouraged. Even when we see it on TV they generally say before they show the segment that it contains graphic details that some viewers may not want to watch. Glad you posted this topic. I'm not one or your face book friends but I personally don't think any of us involved with dogs whether it be rescue, breeding or showing should post that kind of stuff. It just promotes more of the same.

  2. Yup you're right Bruce......I just couldn't get that horrific picture out of my mind. It will haunt me to the day that I die. I just can't wrap myself around such cruelty!

  3. I agree and when I get pics like these I delete them immediately. I am very careful and try to approve ONLY people I know even though most are thru my rabbit groups but I am extremely careful about the dog friends because way too many are supporters of HSUS and ASPCA... these are NOT good groups and are only out to push our beloved pets into extinction. The ASPCA is trying to make people think they are the parent corp of the SPCA when they aren't.

    The HSUS is under investigation right now by the IRS because of their Lobbying practices.. .I know this for fact because I wrote to the government AND received a call from one of the Senators in DC to verify it's TRUE...

    Be careful... Don't fall for the cry tactics and don't give willy nilly to any groups who claim to "give to shelters". GO to the shelter and give in person. That's the only way you'll know where your money goes. I'm sure everyone has a shelter nearby.


  4. Lately I've had people post this stuff on my Facebook page also. I try to delete them as fast as they come in & ask those people to NOT post anything like that again. The most of them don't get it. Those postings have bothered me horribly. There are SO many sick people in this world I don't know where it's coming to. [sigh] For the most part I've met some terrific new people on Facebook. Like always, there's always those out there that need to leave this earth. Kathy Partch

  5. I love your last sentence Kathy....."Like always, there's always those out there that need to leave this earth!" I couldn't have said it better myself!!!
