I would like to encourage a community effort to track down the culprit responsible for the horrific abuse of the black lab found recently in a dumpster in Whitehorse.

To my mind, striking a dog for any reason is always wrong, even when done under the guise of training. It does nothing but instil fear, anxiety and a lack of trust in a pet. And in most cases, it is nothing but a release of frustration on an innocent and bewildered pet. It is abuse, plain and simple, and that’s the reason why it is always done in secret. I believe the saying, “We are only as good as the way we act when we believe no one is watching” would apply here.

But what happened to this black lab is something else again. This poor dog suffered a sustained level of abuse too sickening to relate.

I don’t think it’s a huge extrapolation to state that people capable of such a horrific level of cruelty have serious psychological problems. This is beyond frustration, and, I would believe, reflective of psychopathic behaviour. As well, such acts are never isolated incidents. Unless this person is caught, they will continue, and quite possibly progress to perpetrating such acts on people.

So please, if anyone knows anything, if you know of a friend, family member or neighbour that had a dog like this, you must come forward.

You are not telling on someone. In the end you will be helping this person, by preventing them from doing this again, and getting them the help they so desperately need.

You will be preventing this horrific act from being repeated on another animal, and perhaps even saving the life of a person.

And for doing the right thing, there is a reward for you, sponsored by the good people of Kona’s Coalition.

Please, let’s prevent this perpetrator from repeating this crime, and get them the help they need.
