READ MORE:

THE FOLLOWING IS A NEWS RELEASE FROM THE WILMINGTON POLICE DEPARTMENT:

Case #2011-008720
Time: 12:15 p.m. – Wednesday afternoon
Location: 2800 block Vance Street
Offense: Cruelty to Animals

Summary: Someone killed two puppies by striking them on their heads. A WPD officer was dispatched to the area after a USPS letter carrier heard one of the injured pups crying and called 911.

The letter carrier found the two pups in a nearby ditch. One already was dead. The other had visible injuries but was still alive.

Animal Control responded and transported the badly injured puppy for emergency veterinary care, but the dog died from its injuries. Animal Control later informed the investigating WPD officer that the pups had been hit with (from the nature of the injuries) probably was the claw end of a hammer.

The investigating officer began canvassing the Long Leaf Park area in an attempt to locate the owner of the puppies, but the case remains under investigation.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Wilmington Police Department at 910-343-3600. Information may also be submitted anonymously through Text-A-Tip. Call CRIMES (274637) and enter TIP708 and the information.

puppys

hope they hunt them down like Dogs !! how could anyone do that to them babies !!!

I HOPE THEY BURN

I hope whoever did this suffers EXTENSIVE torture over 100 % of their body and is tortured in that manner SLOWLY until finally after about 2 WEEKS they are dismembered and wiped off this planet. They have NO business being on earth. To the mutant scum that did these senseless killings, BURN IN HELL.

A Crying Shame

Whoever did that is one sick, misguided, cruel mental case. I pray I never run into someone doing cruelty like this because I guarantee the person will regret it. There is no sense in being cruel to helpless animals and people who do this are sick. But sick or not they would face a wrath so terrible it is incomprehensible to describe it and probably againist the law. But, that is how serious the act is and requires extreme measures to ensure no else gets any ideas about doing this to another animal.

I'm amazed that people could believe in a god who loves us

when they read stuff like this. I can only hope the perpetrator dies a long, slow death from cancer.

Just as God is real so is

Just as God is real so is Satan..Satan has control on the earth. don't blame God for what is truly of the devil.

I truly wish I had passed by while this was happening

The proctologists (or possibly the neurosurgeons) at NHRMC would be trying to figure out how to remove a claw hammer from some truly evil POS.

how disgusting.. i would

how disgusting.. i would love to beat the a@$ that did this with the claw end of a hammer and then use the business end of a chainsaw..

Evil!

There is a special place in hell for the evil monster that did this to those babies - makes me sick! Where is justice for animals in our society??
