Nasty, treating puppies as drug mules.

(Reuters) - A veterinarian from Colombia was charged with illegally smuggling narcotics into the United States by surgically implanting packets of liquid heroin into the bellies of puppies, U.S. prosecutors said on Tuesday.

Andres Lopez Elorez was arraigned in a federal court in Brooklyn on Tuesday on an indictment of conspiring to import and distribute heroin into the United States, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York said.

Elorez, 38, pleaded not guilty, U.S. news reports said.

His court-appointed lawyer, Mitchell Dinnerstein, said his client “doesn’t have any real connection” to the United States, the New York Times reported. Dinnerstein was not immediately available for comment.

Fortunately the tiger is in good condition. Vid at link.

U.S. Border Patrol agents in Brownsville, Texas, got a real on-the-job surprise on Monday.

Agents working near the Rio Grande witnessed three individuals trying to enter the country, including one who was carrying a small, black duffel bag.

The smugglers changed their minds about coming to America after they saw the agents. They dropped the bag and hoofed it back to Mexico, according to KHOU TV.

When the officers examined the duffel bag, they were shocked to discover an unconscious male tiger stuffed inside, according to CNN.

Norwich.
Some unpleasant happenings in the suburbs of Norwich at the moment. It appears someone may be systematically mutilating and killing cats.

Two cats have been found with their ears sliced off and two dead animals have also been found.

Two possible sightings of the perp have been recorded - on one occasion attempting to stuff a cat in a holdall, on another swinging a cat against a wall.

Warning - articles contain distressing photos of injured cats.

Five cats attacked in two weeks as body parts discovered

And a follow up article interviewing local residents, who claim many cats have gone missing and people are now keeping their pets indoors:

Pet owners in Norwich living in fear

All rather disturbing.

Young psychopath in training, I'm thinking. They need to catch him now before he moves up to killing humans.

"The so-called Croydon cat killer does not exist, the Metropolitan Police has confirmed.

The force launched an investigation in 2015 into reports of mutilated cats in Croydon and the surrounding area.

Twenty-five post-mortem examinations were carried out but found no evidence of "human involvement".

Scotland Yard said injuries inflicted on cats were "likely to be the result of predation or scavenging by wildlife on cats killed in vehicle collisions".
Foxes are believed to be behind some of the mutilations."

Blame foxes when it's more likely to be a psychotic farmer.

It's certainly true the police have ended their investigation, & they've probably got other priorities. Not everyone is convinced by their explanation. From Jan 2019:

One practice, Streatham Hill Vets, issued a warning on its Facebook page shortly after the Met closed the operation. “We have had several of these bodies brought in to us,” the post said. “They have all consisted of clean, surgical-type amputations or beheadings. They were not done by foxes or wild animals. It is exceptionally rare for a fox to attack a cat and they should not be used as scapegoats for these horrific crimes.”
Round my way there's plenty of foxes & even more cats. They normally avoid each other, though a fox may well scavenge a dead cat. I've not heard of one incident round here - it'd certainly make the local news if it were happening. If there's a cluster round S. London it's unusual.

Rough justice meted out in this case. Attacks on elephants must be stamped out.

Elephant tramples man to death in India after 'locals pelted it with stones when it gave birth to a calf'

  • Footage shows an elephant prodding its newborn calf as it lays on the ground
  • Locals flocked to the scene in Ajnashuli and 'chucked stones at the animal'
  • It's understood Shailen Mahato, 27, was killed, when the crowd were chased

Sheep and cattle attacked and mutilted and daubed with occult symbols, I don't think there's been much of this recently, as usual a lot of the papers are blaming it on "Satanists". The report from the Independent is reasonably sober.

Sheep stabbed to death and painted with Satanic symbols in New Forest

Occult markings also sprayed on church door in village of Bramshaw

A spate of animal attacks and the appearance of occult symbols in the New Forest are being investigated by police, with local residents concerned a Satanic-style cult could be to blame.

One sheep was fatally stabbed and marked with pentagrams near the Hampshire village of Bramshaw, while one heifer and two calves were found with stab wounds in the Linwood area. The animals were later treated by vets.

Satanic symbols, which included an inverted cross and the number 666, have also been sprayed onto the door of St Peter’s Church in Bramshaw.

Police are currently investigating to establish whether the incidents, which have been taking place since Tuesday 12 November, are linked.

Reverend David Bacon, the vicar at St Peter’s, said: “People are concerned. I’ve been here 15 years and seen a lot of stuff, but nothing like this.

“It could just be kids, but I don’t think it is, given the context.
“There’s been witchcraft round here for hundreds of years – the New Forest is well known for witchcraft and black magic happening, and this has obviously gone up a level.”

The New Forest covers more than 220 square miles of southwest Hampshire, with locally-owned livestock allowed to roam freely across the woodland under common rights dating back to the 13th century.
Author and occultist Gerald Gardner, who died in 1964, claimed a coven – a secret society of witches – met there at the start of the 20th century.

Tony Hockley, a resident and the chairman of the New Forest Commoners Defence Association (CDA), expressed his concern at the effect the attacks could have on the local community.

“Any harm to New Forest livestock hurts everyone,” he told The Independent. “We all depend upon the vocational commitment of 700 local people to turn livestock out to graze the landscape. Most have just a few animals, and there are only 200 sheep in the whole of the New Forest.

“It is devastating to lose one in this way, and it is the sort of thing that will make commoners give up. If the grazing goes then the accessibility, culture and biodiversity go too.

“We’d implore anyone with any information on these terrible incidents to help the police.”
Mr Hockley added that he was not aware of a history of occult incidents in the area but added: “The New Forest, like many rural areas, has a historical association with witchcraft so that draws some people and some of the local shops trade on that but it’s normally more about fairies.”
Hampshire police are also making enquiries into reports of a second sheep being found dead and covered in markings within the New Forest.

Sergeant Andy Williams, of Hampshire Constabulary’s Country Watch team, said: “These incidents are unusual in the New Forest. We are looking at the circumstances of each one to see if they are linked, and to see how these animals came to be injured.
“If you have any information that could help our enquiries, then please call 101, quoting the crime reference number 44190416137.
“We would also urge anyone who uses the Forest, including Commoners, to be vigilant. Please contact us if you see anything suspicious, even if you think what you have seen or heard is not that important.”
Animal charity RSPCA said: “We are very concerned about how these animals died so would urge anyone with information to contact police who are investigating.”

So it wasn't foxes ...

A security guard has been charged after nine cats were killed and seven others were seriously injured in the Brighton area.

Steven Bouquet, 52, is charged with 16 counts of criminal damage over the alleged attacks carried out between October 2 2018 and June 1 2019. Sussex Police said he was also charged with possessing a knife in public on June 2. Bouquet, from the London Road area of Brighton, has been bailed to appear at Brighton Magistrates’ Court on January 23.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said the criminal damage charges do not detract from the seriousness of the allegations. Cats and other animals are considered as property under legislation and criminal damage can attract a heavier sentence than animal cruelty.

Could he have been in the vicinity of the more infamous suspected cat killer we were told didn't exist a few months ago?

This is horrible. What sort of person does this?

Two pet rabbits have been badly burned after their hutch was deliberately set alight.
The incident happened at around 03:10 on Thursday at a property in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire.
Emergency services were called to Forman Drive, Clerkhill, and extinguished the fire, which left the two rabbits badly singed.
Police described the incident as a "reckless and cruel act" which left the pet owners shaken.

This might be a case of cruelty to animals or maybe the cat killed the snakes and one of them got in a last bite.

Three pythons and a cat have been found dead in the same wooded area in South Lanarkshire.

A member of the public found the first snake at about 10:30 on 18 December, between Carstairs and the Clyde Valley nursing home. Two further snakes and a black and white cat were found in the same spot three days later. Animal welfare officers have called the discoveries "unusual" in their appeal for information. The snakes are all adult royal python and are about one metre (40 inches) in length. The cat was not micro-chipped.

Killed his neighbour's dogs so he could make a "dog coat".

FLOYD CO. MAN ARRESTED FOR SKINNING DOGS TO MAKE “DOGGY COAT”
By Christy Bollinger

We first reported on twenty horses deliberately shot and killed.

- Advertisement -

Now comes this, Kentucky State Police say 38-year-old Jonathan D. Watkins is accused of killing his neighbor’s dogs and ‘skinning’ them.

We must warn you the details are graphic.

It was December 23rd when state troopers responded to a complaint in the David community of Floyd County.

The caller told them his neighbor, Jonathan Watkins, had killed his two dogs, skinned them, and had the skins and carcasses hanging off his front porch.

“Apparently he made a statement that he was making a fur coat out of the dogs’ hides,” says KSP Post 9 Public Affairs Officer, Trooper William Petry.

The neighbor, Joshua Vick, told troopers he later saw four animal skins on Watkins’ front porch along with two skinned dog carcasses. He notified troopers one of their other neighbor’s two dogs were missing. Two others in the area also witnessed the animal skins and carcasses on his porch, according to KSP.

State police say Watkins admitted in graphic detail to killing his neighbors’ dogs, saying he stabbed them in the heart and threw the carcasses over the hill when he was done skinning them. Investigators say they found two skinned carcasses.

Did that come from nowhere do we think?
We looked into his lengthy criminal history. His rap sheet is five pages long with charges ranging from assault to murder of a police officer, who was his stepfather, Albert Bloomfield – a Magoffin County deputy jailer.

That 2013 case was eventually dismissed after a psychiatric evaluation found him not responsible.
Not responsible so what? You just let him go?:wtf:
This might be a case of cruelty to animals or maybe the cat killed the snakes and one of them got in a last bite.
Though the second and third snakes were found in the same spot as the first but later on. Having visited a reptile rescue centre, they say there that a lot of pure scumbags own big snakes as it makes them look hard. Reptiles are not protected like fluffy things so they can be as cruel as they like and never be prevented from owning more. :( If they ever find this person they may be able to get them on the cat.

Update.

A security guard has denied killing nine cats in a spate of night time attacks in the Brighton area.

Steven Bouquet, 53, of Rose Hill Terrace in Brighton, East Sussex, is also accused over attacks that left seven other cats seriously injured. He appeared in the dock at Brighton Magistrates' Court. Mr Bouquet is charged with 16 counts of criminal damage and one of possession of a knife which relate to incidents between 2 October 2018 and 1 June 2019.

The charges follow a spate of attacks on cats around the city, which the prosecutor David Holman said took place mostly at night.

Really nasty stuff.

Marine authorities in the U.S. are offering a $20,000 reward for information that leads to the criminals responsible for the deaths of two dolphins.

Last week, biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission discovered a dead dolphin off the coast of Naples, with what appeared to be a gaping gunshot wound or stabbing injury from a sharp object. The same week Florida’s Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge recovered a dolphin with a bullet in its left side on Pensacola Beach. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) office of law enforcement has put up the reward. The organization’s southeastern office believes these cases may stem from humans feeding wild dolphins.

“Dolphins fed by people learn to associate people and boats with food, which can put them in harmful situations,”

20 hamsters found trapped in fast food boxes and stuffed into a hedge:
Hamster factor

I strongly suspect an animal lover was not involved. Anyway, the cowards who did it remain a mystery, as do their motives.

I kept forgetting to post the news story about the Polish man the other week who got drunk and took on a bear in Warsaw Zoo, but having watched half the video of it on YouTube just now, I don't think I'll bother. It was really unpleasant, made more so by the video uploader treating this animal cruelty as one big joke. The drunkard was arrested, at least.
