Update On High Desert Dog Torturer

posted on Sep, 12 2015 @ 02:21 PM

Update: Whoever this sick mofo is, he is still at it. The total number of dogs found burnt , in the High Desert of So Cal, by something caustic has risen to 9 with 2 of them having to be put down. The last dog brought in by animal control is a Chihuahua they named Taco. He is badly burnt and now has fear-aggression issues and a lack of trust in people. I am leaning to a single perp torturing these dogs. The High Desert is full of creepy sickos and I fear this prick will switch over to humans any time now. It's like seeing the making of a serial killer in the process. What kind of sick mofo gets his kicks torturing dogs. WTF?


Taco is being cared for at the same animal hospital as Chrissie, a pit bull who was also burned. She's recovering but officials don't know what caused her injuries.
"We have done a skin biopsy on Chrissie," said Beth Newhill, an animal rescuer. "All they could tell us was a caustic chemical burn."
The animal rescuers fear one or more disturbed individuals are responsible for torturing the dogs.

One thing that disturbs me is the lack of concern shown by Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's investigators are trying to determine whether the dogs were maliciously hurt or whether their wounds could have been caused by something in the environment.

Really? Maliciously done or caused by the environment? Are they serious?
I would like to take a few days off and find this guy because I don't believe the Sheriff's gives a hoot. Granted they do have a lot of sexual predators up there to keep track of. Too bad it's such a large Desert. Taco was found 60 miles away in Apple Valley. Still the high Desert though.

They're not sure all the cases are connected since the dogs have been found over a wide area.
Taco was rescued in San Bernadino County, 60 miles from the Antelope Valley.

Update 2: The Reward has been upped to $50,000.

A reward being offered for information leading to whoever has been burning dogs with caustic chemicals in the Antelope Valley jumped to $50,000 Tuesday, thanks to a $25,000 private donation announced by Los Angeles County officials.

I hope this reward money will sway someone, that might know the sick mofo, to turn them in. This crap really makes my blood boil. This person will be hard to catch, since he is doing it randomly over such a vast area.

MODS: This is an update from Sick Bastard in the High Desert.
I'm not sure if that is allowed. Delete if needed and I will take my point deductions like a man. Thank you.

What are the penalties for crimes of violence against animals? I think this person deserves life in prison honestly, truly sickening that somebody could think this is okay in any way.

Perhaps people from the area will catch wind of the story and can provide some helpful tips - praying for justice!

CA Penal Code
Seems a lot of leeway here from the judge:

597. (a) Except as provided in subdivision (c) of this section o
Section 599c, every person who maliciously and intentionally maims,
mutilates, tortures, or wounds a living animal, or maliciously and
intentionally kills an animal, is guilty of a crime punishable
pursuant to subdivision (d).

(c) Every person who maliciously and intentionally maims,
mutilates, or tortures any mammal, bird, reptile, amphibian, or fish,
as described in subdivision (e), is guilty of a crime punishable
pursuant to subdivision (d).
(d) A violation of subdivision (a), (b), or (c) is punishable as
a felony by imprisonment pursuant to subdivision (h) of Section 1170,
or by a fine of not more than twenty thousand dollars ($20,000), or
by both that fine and imprisonment, or alternatively, as a
misdemeanor by imprisonment in a county jail for not more than one
year, or by a fine of not more than twenty thousand dollars
($20,000), or by both that fine and imprisonment.

(h) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, if a defendant is
granted probation for a conviction under this section, the court
shall order the defendant to pay for, and successfully complete,
counseling, as determined by the court, designed to evaluate and
treat behavior or conduct disorders. If the court finds that the
defendant is financially unable to pay for that counseling, the court
may develop a sliding fee schedule based upon the defendant's
ability to pay. An indigent defendant may negotiate a deferred
payment schedule, but shall pay a nominal fee if the defendant has
the ability to pay the nominal fee. County mental health departments
or Medi-Cal shall be responsible for the costs of counseling required
by this section only for those persons who meet the medical
necessity criteria for mental health managed care pursuant to Section
1830.205 of Title 9 of the California Code of Regulations or the
targeted population criteria specified in Section 5600.3 of the
Welfare and Institutions Code. The counseling specified in this
subdivision shall be in addition to any other terms and conditions of
probation, including any term of imprisonment and any fine. This
provision specifies a mandatory additional term of probation and is
not to be utilized as an alternative in lieu of imprisonment pursuant
to subdivision (h) of Section 1170 or county jail when that sentence
is otherwise appropriate. If the court does not order custody as a
condition of probation for a conviction under this section, the court
shall specify on the court record the reason or reasons for not
ordering custody. This subdivision shall not apply to cases involving
police dogs or horses as described in Section 600.

It seems this psycho could get 3 years according to this

And I assume the judge would count all nine seperately.

The PD seems like it wants to go in circles here. Wonder if any others can step in, ASPCA, maybe that have police? Caused by the environment? Have to be kidding, that's just giving the heartless person who is doing this an excuse. Plus 60 miles and not connected. Seriously, am sure people travel in and out of 60 miles in most all places when they intent to cause harm like this praying on the innocent.

I hope this brings more attention to help find this sicko. With the two pictures compared, as well as taco, looks like the same person may done done those cases at least.

Madness, dogs are our brothers in war they are our friends, our brothers sisters, I hope for a day that the life an animal is worth the life of an un productive member of the human race, until the justice system treats human on animal violence as a serious crime we can expect to see more of this inhumane animal cruelty, it seems that just because we can work technology somehow our lives are worth more, enough, time to treat all violence as the same, sad thing is it's a double edged sword, we condone the mass slaughter of animals to eat yet we want justice for dogs being attacked by a madman, can't have it both ways, meat is murder people, less of the double standard.

hope they catch the waste of oxygen

Depends who catches him/her... If I catch them, he/she will never be found, and I'll take my time scrubbing them from existence.

If the state catches them, fines and or jail time. Sick I know, these mother#ers don't deserve to pay for their crimes in currency.

I hope the reward money makes the difference.

Dogs have been with us a long time and have huge hearts - they love us.

It breaks my heart to read this. Very sad
