    What happens to a person to so badly twist their mind that they could even consider hurting helpless animals like this. Hopefully any children he has are being closely monitored.

  4. CRIMES AGAINST ANIMALS MUST BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY — FIND the small white dog — Thank God you removed the other dog — Pittie — NEVER to return him to Murray — throw the Monster-Murray in prison & keep him there — We must ensure these PSYCHOS stay away from animals in every way — the depraved indifference & abuse inflicted on trusting, vulnerable, loyal dogs is telling of unconscionable, depraved, insane, sadistic & hateful humans — ensure Murray NEVER adopts again — PUNISHMENTS & PENALTIES MUST BE SEVERE — We do NOT want repeats of these crimes — EVER
