Dear Care2 friends,

Something really weird happened last night, I woke up at 3 in the morning because there was this horrible sound of a dog almost screaming, as though it was being tortured. I tried to figure out which direction it was coming from, when the sound stopped, the poor animal ending in a wail of pain and terror. I was about to get dressed and go try to find out where the sound was coming from, but Wade told me it was too dangerous. Then around 4am, it sounded like someone was building something or hammering something, like they were building a box or a container. It kept me up all night with nightmares, and I really don't know what I can do. If I go around and start asking questions, I might find something out, or I might let the mad man who did it know who I am. I feel sick to my stomach and don't know what to do. (The police won't go out on a call around here unless you have an address to send them to, so I'd need to know where the sounds were coming from.)

Does anyone have any ideas?

Call the Pasadena Police Department and the Pasadena Humane Society. They will investigate and more than likely find the individual.

Document everything. Injured animals in the neighborhood. Strange behavior in the neighbors. Anything that might be relevant.

Secondly, if someone is making any kind of noise, then do call the police as it is happening. There may be a reason that simply requires them to tell the noisemaker to shut up. Or, they catch an animal abuser in the act and arrest her before she can do anything else.

The most important thing to remember is to never do anything that will jeopardize your own safety.

I'll be checking up on animal rescue groups in my area that may have more resources to help with this, thanks to all. Will keep you updated.

Thank you for the input Brian, Fred and Kathryn, last night there wasn't a sound, which is good news. I'm still calling to report it, in case there have been other incidences and they are building a file on these vile people doing the abuse.
