Dogs Found Skinned Along Colorado Road

BERTHOUD, Colo. – Investigators in Larimer County want to find the person responsible for a disturbing case of animal cruelty.

Two dogs were found mutilated outside of Berthoud last week.

The dogs were discovered just a few miles apart. They were so badly abused that veterinarians can’t even tell what breed they were.

The first discovery came after an anonymous call on Wednesday. Police found the dog on the side of County Road 4. Police said the dog was skinned and beheaded, and the tail also removed.

Then on Saturday, a second gruesome discovery made along County Road 16 – an almost identical case.

Right now investigators said they have no leads and they said they are not sure if the cases are linked to the dozens of reported missing pets that have come in over the past few days.

“We just get so many animals that come into Larimer Humane Society that are stray every year and at this point we don’t even know the specific breed of the animals,” said Humane Society spokeswoman Marcie Willms.

Authorities say the perpetrators could face felony charges.

Investigators said they are performing necropsies on the two dogs to determine if they were killed by human hands.

My God, what the hell is wrong with people.everywhere but obviously in Colorado and in Missouri….The Police are obviously dumfounded because what else is capable of skinning and beheading an animal other than a Mountain Lion or a Bear….It is humans, the supposedly most intelligent animal on the planet that could only have done this radical abuse of animals.  Check with known trappers and hunters and people in general that are known animal abusers….These people need to be skinned alive just as they did to these animals…..  Animal abuse has to become a criminal offense with fines and jail time….not just a friggin slap n the hand or a misdemaner..  Come on, animals love us unconditonally, they are emotional, have deep feeling and definitely feel pain….we humans must be their voice for their protection.

Whoever did this is sick sick sick and probably going to escalate onto humans! Hope they find whoever did it and skin them alive too!

If they find the human trash who did this they should be skinned and beaten to a pulp.  I don’t care if they are humans.  As far as I am concerned, humans who do this have lost all their rights and deserve death or very severe, harsh punishments.  Nothing will change if these idiots are just given a slap on the wrist.  I hope they die.

How horrible! Only a monster is capable of such horrific acts! Serial killers start on animals and I hope they find this person before it moves on to other things!

Anyone that would do that to an animal, would be a danger to people as well!!

I am at a loss to even begin to TRY to understand how a human being could do such a thing to a loving animal.I really hope they catch the jerks that did this and punish them to the fullest extent of the law.  Since we have hate crimes laws on the books, I think these people should be charged with a hate crime.

Angie, pit bulls are some of the sweetest, most loving dogs on the planet…it is the HUMAN factor that has given them the awful reputation they have.  Pits are not mean by nature, they are beaten, abused and trained to be that way.  HUMANS are the violent culprits here…I’m embarrassed to say that I am the same species as these cruel beasts!  The more I know people, the more I love my dogs!!
