The mother must have been really unbearably starved to eat her own puppies.. as protecting as a mother dog is.. I think the reason she ate them is to get them out of there suffering.. that took alot of love on her part.. this about drives me nuts.. how can anyone do that .. & these WERE pedigrees,, just shows that these people don't care about papers they didn't even care about the pups.. I hope the court doesn't care how severe the penalty is they hand down.. this is so wrong.. poor pups & mother dog..i hope he gets a sentenced for everyone that died .. & gets severe with every starving dog & pup

They look like us, they dress like us, they talk like never recognize the real monsters...they are all belonging to the human race.
How can you watch your pet dying of starvation, while you have your breakfast, your lucnh and your dinner, your daily fastfood...
It breaks my heart reading this...
But...thanks for sharing, Cher!

this man should have the same thing done to him. I have never known of a dog to do this, she must have been so desperate, to take away life that she had given birth to. May he rot in jail and never get out. While he is in there I hope some of the inmates hear about what this monster did and pay him back for his cruelty.

How my heart breaks for this dog and her puppies I know deep down inside she did not want to do this but she had no choice but too so she could live and try to keep some of her other pups alive. The need to take this man and put him in the gas chamber where they do dogs and cats, I'm sorry but this just makes me so angry. I'm sick of seeing animals being abuse and starved. I hope I never catch anyone doing it for if I do it will not be a good day for I will be going to jail no doubt about it, but it would be worth it to save its life. Thanks Cher C.

Only monsters do this type of thing. They should have an Island that the abusers of animals are sent to with no food but made to find their own food & water for survival. Perhaps they'd eat each other in order to survive. They don't deserve to live among the loving, caring & compassionate humans. Stricter laws need to be passed against these monsters.

I say put him in jail without food or water. It would serve him right.

this is a very horrible, sick, perverted sicko to allow his dog to eat her pups. I had observed such an occurance where I live, a beautifull German shepard female wandered into a yard, oh was so cute the male that lived there, got her pregnant, she had pups, this family had 4 houses and each lived in by humans, on this property the female had pups and no one would feed her, she got so hungry one of her pups died and she carried it around for a couple of days and no one paid attention but watched her, she started to eat it. they all complained how sick that made them, would they give her food NO they only complained!! there are many non caring humans on this earth. I tried to make friends with her and get to follow me to my place, she had no trust in her. After she ate her pups, those people that complained! they finally called the dog person to kill her, after she and her pups suffered, this is a cruel society!! What can you expect of people who are cruel to humans? they are! also animals!

Gross, but, this is the survival instinct. This guy should go without food or water for a while and see what he does. Maybe he'd naw off his own foot or something. Deserves the worst that life has to offer.

I think this man needs to be left in the ocean and let the sharks feed on him.

To bad he could not get the same punishment he put this dog through. Sometimes I think we should bill board these offenders of animals. Put their names up in each town, just like they do with child offenders in Fla. Make a daily paper or flyers in your home town with their names. Hope this man sees jail for a long time. He should not have the right to be around an animal or a child. Most animal abusers turn to children next. I consider animals as angels and children.

I agree Pamela,
More needs to be done to shed light on these horrible individuals.
