From the Plain Dealer,

CLEVELAND, Ohio Three dogs were tied last week to the CSX railroad tracks that run through Cleveland's Tremont neighborhood.

Two of them were killed by trains. The third was a small dog that hunched down when the train came. She survived.

A CSX bridge monitor found the little dog about 8:50 p.m. Friday and called police, Lt. Mark Ketterer said. She was taken to the Cleveland Kennel, then transferred to the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter in Valley View.

The railroad worker told officers that he had discovered the first two dogs' bodies in the same secluded stretch of tracks near University and Scranton roads.

And he witnessed from a distance the third dog being tied out. He said a man tied the small dog to a rail then appeared to take photographs or video of her.

By the time the railroad worker got to the dog, the train had passed and the man was gone.

Police are asking Tremont residents to be on the lookout for a man walking a dog near railroad tracks. Report suspicious activity to Second District officers at 216-623-5200. Ketterer will head the investigation.

"It's got everyone upset over here that someone would do that. It's awful that someone did that to torture animals, and might be filming it," he said.

sorry, but in this here "f*ing sad, goddamned beautiful world" (to borrow words from J.Jarmush) (it seems) there Just Aint No Justise.
Justise as opposed to revenge, that is. And while i can fully understand (and to some point do share) the emotions of and impulses for revenge, I remind me and you, that revenge is not a very effective means of err(howtoputit?) righting wrongs and avoiding future (similar) wrongs (or atrocities)

This happened not too far from where I live; I will do what I can to make sure these little ones get the justice they deserve and that a sadistic murderer is removed from society.

May the two fur babies who died Rest In Peace.
I will keep the little girl in my thoughts and prayers-her mental state is going to be fragile for the rest of her life.

Wolf A ~ go troll elsewhere! As usual, you appear occasionally on animal rights posts, only to condemn the people actually trying to do something about it! Did you even sign the freakin' petition?
