here is an article from today's calgary herald
warning - not for the faint of heart

--------
Dog beaten, dragged, left for dead
Jason van Rassel, Calgary Herald
Published: Thursday, October 12, 2006

A trail of blood led police to two suspects who allegedly beat a family dog and dragged the animal behind a vehicle in Didsbury.

The dog's injuries were so severe, a veterinarian called to the scene had to euthanize the animal on the spot.

"This was definitely, in my 10 years of policing, the most horrendous act I've seen against an animal," said Cpl. Kevin Fischer of the RCMP in Didsbury, 90 kilometres north of Calgary.

A couple found the female collie-Lab cross lying in the street near Ross Ford Elementary School in the northwest corner of town early Sunday.

Their frantic phone call woke Dr. Andy Mencarelli, a veterinarian at the Krebs clinic in Didsbury, who went to the scene.

The dog's legs were bound together with duct tape and there was a tow rope around its neck.

Its head was wrapped in a bag.

"There was blood everywhere," said Mencarelli.

The dog was able to lift its head, but in too much shock to make any sound, he said.

When Mencarelli lifted the dog to the back of his truck to euthanize it, the true extent of the animal's injuries became apparent.

"This dog was just broken," he said, adding its neck, pelvis, back and skull were fractured.

Investigators believe the six- or seven-year-old dog endured a beating prior to being tied up and hitched to a vehicle.

"Indications are the dog was dragged behind a vehicle," Fischer said.

The dog had no tags, tattoos or obvious identification, but police officers followed a trail of blood to a local home.

Police have laid charges against two teenagers, but

Fischer said Wednesday they are no closer to learning a motive for the crime.

"There is nothing, at this point," he said.

Daniel Charles Haskett, 19, of Didsbury has been charged under the Criminal Code with injuring/endangering an animal and causing unnecessary suffering to an animal. He is also charged with obstructing police.

A 17-year-old male, whose identity is protected by the Youth Criminal Justice Act, is charged with injuring/endangering an animal and causing unnecessary suffering to an animal.

For adult offenders, each of the animal cruelty charges has a maximum penalty of a $2,000 fine or six months in jail -- or both.

The case is also being investigated by the Alberta Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

A conviction under the province's Animal Protection Act can carry a maximum penalty of a $20,000 fine and a lifetime ban from owning animals, but an official said no further charges are being contemplated.

"We have been notified of it and are having some followup involvement," said Morris Airey, the Alberta SPCA's director of enforcement.

The two suspects are scheduled to appear in Didsbury provincial court on Nov. 6.

if this bothers you as much as it did me, please contact the calgary herald with your thoughts or better yet, send a copy of this article to any and every politician you can think of and ask that the penalties for this kind of brutality should not be tolerated any longer and the current punishment are simply not adequate

thanks

“if this bothers you as much as it did me, please contact the calgary herald with your thoughts or better yet, send a copy of this article to any and every politician you can think of and tell them that the penalties for this kind of brutality are simply inadequate and that these acts cannot be tolerated any longer”

Of this there is no doubt....you cannot dodge karma!

Yes fuzzy, I have many guns you may borrow but that will not do this tragedy justice. Perhaps karma will take care of this when they are serving time in jail and word gets out that they practice animal cruelty, even hardend criminals don't tolerate this kind of shit..... ballgag

I just cannot understand what makes people do this kind of thing, or how they can actually do this to an animal and get a kick out of causing such suffering. total sick fucks! Laws over here (UK) don't protect animals either - you hear horrendously disturbing stories of abuse and the perpertrator just gets a slap on the wrist and a ban from keeping pets. Its just a joke....

I know I can say fuck. I use the fucking word freely. I was just so mad the words couldn't come out.

viva la puppies and kitties and birdies and fishies and snakies and spiders(that is especially for you lorgakor).

People who abuse animals and children are cowards. We need more laws to protect people and animals who cannot protect themselves.

here is the letter i have just sent to the PM
if you feel the same, take a moment and do the same

--------

Open Letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper
Office of the Prime Minister
80 Wellington Street
Ottawa, ON K1A 0A2


Re: Family Dog Tortured in Didsbury, AB

Dear Prime Minster Harper,
As the political leader of Canada I can appreciate that you are an extremely busy individual. With that in mind, I will do my best to keep this open letter as brief as possible.

I have chosen to contact you in order to bring to your attention an incredibly heinous crime recently committed in your home province of Alberta and in the hope that you will be willing to help prevent it from happening again.

This past week an innocent creature was brutally beaten, bound, and dragged to its death by two cowardly members of the Didsbury community. If you have not yet heard the details of this incident, they can be accessed on the Calgary Herald’s website.

As a fellow animal caregiver yourself, you are undoubtedly as appalled by this senseless crime as I am.

On your website, both crime prevention and caring for family pets are prominently displayed. The statements of “It is equally important that we prevent criminal behaviour before it has a chance to take root…and end the cycle of violence that can lead to broken communities and broken lives” as well as “…those who want to make a difference for an animal to do so” could not be more relevant than right now.

With the above in mind, I am asking you to do the right thing. The Canadian Criminal Code must be amended to allow for sufficient punishment for anyone who inflicts barbaric torture on an innocent animal. This change will not only protect animals but also the future human victims of these same conscienceless perpetrators.

In closing I ask that you also consider the views of the following individuals…

“I care not for a man's religion whose dog and cat are not the better for it.” - Abraham Lincoln

“Our task must be to free ourselves...by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.” - Albert Einstein

“Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not die, so do other creatures." - His Holiness The Dalai Lama

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
- Gandhi

Thank you for your time and please feel free to contact me if you or one of your staff would like to discuss this topic further.

Kudos on a great letter.
Also referring to the thread title I don't think you should borrow a gun, its too much of a quick death for those skum.
