Okay I'm not a fan of Pitbulls, but that is just out and out cruel and shouldn't happen to ANY animal!!! I REALLY hope they find whoever did this.

PLEASE spay/neuter and ADOPT a rescue!!!!

Apparantly they do know who did it and he's serving time for another offense. They can't prosecute him for this as there are no witnesses.

Re: Tigger the Pit Bull set on fire/recovery B.C.

I've known quite a few pit bulls while working with animal control, most are sweet affectionate dogs. It's only the a$$hole owners who would treat these animals cruely that turn them into the monsters you read about.
Remember, GSD's could be next!

Re: Tigger the Pit Bull set on fire/recovery B.C.

I have a pit bull mix and she is about the best dog that I have ever had. I love her with all my heart. If someone did something like that to her... well, I'm sure you know what I mean. I hope they are able to get enough evidence together to charge the guy. People's cruelty never ceases to amaze me.

Re: Tigger the Pit Bull set on fire/recovery B.C.

gads what in the world is wrong with people? Glad he is OK. what a horrible thing. I met a sweet female pitbull, took the treats out of my hand soooo gently.
The people that do this must be psychopaths
