On January 20, 2010 an image surfaced on the internet depicting a hand holding a recently removed dog's head. Much investigation has been done since then and the criminals responsible for the horrific offense are closer than ever to being brought to

Thank you Kat for sending me this. Please everyone, when you go to the site ,there is a terribly upsetting photo of poor Rigsby. There is a investigation going on, but it is coming out that the three teenagers including the so called werewolf girl killed him, he wasnt found injured nor was he dead when this happened it is believed!!

But it is a ongoing investigation still, all facts have not come out, his death was caused by these three sick girll. He was stolen by one called Raz, who knew whose dog he was, knew he wasnt a stray and keep him from the 5th to the 19th, a witness seem him at her house, then the fact is that the one that calls herself wolfie blackheart beheaded him and put photos of poor Rigsby beheaded on the internet, How sick are these three!!!

WHEW! It is looking like poor Rigsby was killed, but I wonder if we'll ever know for sure. Even if he WAS already dead, cutting his head off is obviously scary behavior. He was such a sweet looking dog; this story is very disturbing........Noted Simone, thanks. (and Kat)

Shows you just how poorly they were raised. Decent parents teach children respect and compassion for animals apparently it was lacking in their homes, if they could do this then they are a danger to humans. Just sickens me and trembling from anger at these B - - - - - s.

Well, I couldn't look at the picture, I am glad you told me before hand. I would like a follow-up as to what happens to these little creeps. I hope they go to prison. I have my wonderful pets and look at them and cry because I just think if I didn't save them, they would have had a horrible death. My babies were all saved from a shelter. My pets are my life! I can't believe anyone would do such a thing. These are some sick kids that should absolutely be prosecuted as adults. I won't look at the pictures, so I can't read the whole story but it sounds absolutely horrendous! That poor precious angel. He is with God and His Angels now.

I can not bring myself to look at any of the pics. I cannot view any graphics or videos of such barbaric cruelty. I hope they will be able to prove exactly who killed that precious dog and throw the book at them. The fact that some of today's children and young men and women are capable of such an atrocity, really is scary and disturbing. But it also builds a rage in me that I can't even explain. I say lock up and throw away the key. GRRRr-r-r-r-r!

At the end of the story,it stated that the mutilation did happen at Wolfie's house for those who didn't read it all.What a bunch of evil, brutal, Blackhearted monsters. They kidnap Rigsby,hold him for awhile(who knows what they did to him then),and then kill and behead the poor furbaby.They are dangerous people-they need to be taken out of society and locked up for good.

Something is really wrong with these three and many others like them! Cold and sadistic. I wonder if it was some sort of cult or religious ritual? Very disturbing then again with all the beheadings we used to see on TV once live I am not surprised this culture of children is so demented! Too much violence and war will bring on this type of behavior. Not good at all! RIP poor Rigsby

I honestly doubt these monsters could be ever rehab. Is there a petition site where we can vote? Thank you Simone for tnis post, though horrible news, it`s necessary to know, so we can do something to stop these criminals.

Not only are they monsters but they are are mentally ill/ They need to be arrested and have psychiatric evaluations. Remember Jeffrey Dalmer started by torturing poor defenseless animals. I hope and pray that they are removed from society.
I was afraid to click on the site bc I have trouble getting sick images out of my head. Rest in Peace sweet Rigsby. Noone can hurt you there!

Meg is absolutely right. Whoever did this will kill more animals, their brutality of those killings will escalate until it not longer satisfies them, then they'll move on to humans and repeat the cycle until they are taken off the streets for good. Most serial killers started out this way--just think how of the lives animal and human alike which could be saved by removing them from circulation NOW. In prison or in a mental hospital, the offenders would at least get help if they can be helped.

As many people have commented, serial killers start with torturing and abusing animals. These 'girls' should get the full Michael Vick publicity, whether or not they are minors. They must be taken away from society & given long, expert psychiatric evaluations and treatment before they are released - if ever. If up to me - NEVER. Couldn't look at the pics of what they'd done. This is absolutely repulsive. If ever anyone needed ostracism from society, it's this bunch.

I could not go to the links, the pictures at the main link are enough to bring tears of sorrow for the confusion, fear, and pain this little guy experienced at the hands of these months. I will ask forgiveness later for wishing death upon these 3 worthless little pieces of crap. Send them to jail - we support them with our tax dollars and they still get to live which is far more than they deserve. Send them to a mental institution - same thing. Where are there parents? and imagine their shame!!!

Why is it the innocent and defendless always be the victims of human cruelty? Can't we teach our kids to respect life in all its forms?Surely there must be something we can do to ensure these kids are brought to justice and punished severely. Only yesterday I posted a letter to the Riverside, Ca judge for another dog called Karley that was cruelly killed and the person who did it is to be tried on March the 8th 2010. Can't we contact anyone about Rigby too? And Please, I beg you do anything in your power to teach future generations to love and respect and protect, it's the best way to prevent animal killing

Here is the email address:

Below is the letter I wrote. Please feel free to copy and send.

Dear Ms. Sepeda

I am writing to you concerning the beheading of the dog named Rigsby by San Antonio teenagers.

This is a dispicable act and one that will not be tolerated by a civilized society. As a part of that civilized society I am encouraging you to prosecute any and all individuals involved in this egregious crime. No matter how small a part played they should all be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

The fact that after committing this atrocity those people had the audacity to show off their handiwork on YouTube shows that they had time to think about what they had done. This can only lead one to believe that they had no sympathy, compassion or felt any empathy for poor little Rigsby. Thus, I also would like to encourage you to ask for the most punative sentencing allowable under your laws.

We cannot allow abuse to defenseless animals to go on being punished as a property crime. The sorrow and loss felt by Rigsby's caretakers will linger with them for a very long time. The nightmarish way that he died will haunt them forever. Nothing will ever take that picture out of their minds or ease their pain.

Sincerely,

I am just sick and filled with despair. Everytime I sign on to this site there are stories like this. I just don't know how to deal with it anymore.

Poor innocent humans who cross the paths of these killers in the years to come.

The wimpy law will never mete out the just punishment for these sickos so the best that can be hoped for is that wherever they are sent to prison the inmates will hear of this and invent a very slow and painful just penalty.

Or you can ship the bastards to Kingston......

IF this is true, then these kids need to be rounded up and caned just like other countries do to offenders. This country is too lenient when it comes to punishing people. These are sick individuals who were probably wanting to prove that they were big and bad.
I say let's round the sick bastards up and cane them until they pass out from the pain, then when they wake up cane them once more until they pass out, the scars will serve as a reminder to them not to torture/dismember animals and would also send the message to sick individuals like them!

My heart is heavey for all involved: Rigsby, his family, the troubled teens. How did we get to the point where we, as a society have been been able to raise such cruelty. I hope Rigsby is happy & at peace, I hope the family finds peace, I hope they open their hearts to another dog. I hope the teens get a swift and stern punishment as well as mandatory counseling. I hope that cruelty becomes less & less prevelent in the world as a result of our actions and prayers.

I definitely will write. There is no place in society for these kinds of teenagers. Where are the parents? If one of those was my child and if the law did not punish them sufficiently, I grant you I would not spare the rod and spoil the child. I would seek to have that child committed to prevent another serial killer when they grow up.

These sickos will never receive the punishment they truly deserve, we have seen so much horror towards animals, but very rarely do we see any punishment that fits the crime. It's very sad, but we rarely see justice when it comes to animal abuse...

As to these barbaric monsters...words fail me...they realy do...he was such a beautiful, sweet little dog.

They are lost souls and it would be a waste of taxpayer money to keep them alive...I would give them the death penalty if I could and not blink an eye... this is why activists do what they do, because animals should have our protection and love, not this..Rigsby didn't ask to be born into this and neither did the pukes who did this to him. What kind of home were they born into??

I hope these monstrous perverts are never unleashed into society again. It is so disheartening to see the depths of depravity that some humans are capable of. The animals are more humane than scum like these three and others like them. I hope there is a special place in hell for these three and a special place in Heaven for this lovely little Rigsby.

Dear God, Lord of the Universe, why does it never get any better; it just gets worse and worse, with each year that passes. Rigsby is no doubt waiting near the Rainbow Bridge for his special humans to join him. He is an angel now, and maybe he can forgive those sadistic barbarians who murdered him. Every single day there are more and more and more authentic, true stories about the cruel, wicked, abusive things that some humans do to precious innocent, helpless animals. They are ALL of them, EACH AND EVERY ONE a precious soul, and they will ALL go to Heaven - which is more than a great number of humans will, if there is any justice beyond death from this life. Dante missed out quite a few circles when he described Hell; there ought to be a special circle for sadists who torture, abuse and murder animals, children, the frail and elderly or defenceless, innocent adults.

I really hope parents of these FUCKED up teenagers will accept that there's something seriously wrong with their kids. it disgusts me to see parents defend their kids just because they are their kids, that's such a twisted love and self-righteous thing to do. i'm going off the topic now...
we really had enough of these kind of story didn't we? we should bring strong death row like China, you'd be surprised how little animal abuse will be committed.

My heart is broken and I'm furious that these thugs would harm poor Rigsby just for kicks.
I have written Wayne Pacelle at the HSUS asking him for help in bringing the harshest possible punishment on these subhuman freaks. I'm so sad for him and his caretakers. If somebody did that to any animal in my vicinity, I would probably take justice in my own hands.

I think the thing that should be emphasized here is that they will do it again. This may have been the first, it may not, but it would seem to be the first time they were so pleased with their unspeakable crime that they thought it would be "fun" to make a video and put it on YouTube. The thing to remember is, the first time a crime against another is committed is the hardest, it gets easier evey time after that, and we know they will torture and kill again, how long until it's a person (not that what they did to Rigsby is necessarily any less of evil a crime).

Precious animals are so very much at the mercy of the sick people of this world. I cry for the fear and distress and pain that Rigsby suffered due to no fault of his own. He just happened to be in the wrong place at a time when these sick girls instigated their horrific plan. Unfortunately, the Dahmer lesson didn't teach anyone anything, so the girls most likely will be given a slap on the wrist and a little bit of counseling, and then turned loose until their next victim again pays the price. That is very frightening!!And it needs to be stopped!!!

Have personalised letter as follows below -- and also sent it to the Mayor of San Antonio-- the heading (from their website) in the subject line is, "Ask the Mayor A Question" and the recipient is sarah.mclornan@sanantonio.gov -- (must be the secretary of the Mayor, I saw his pic but didnt note his name) Thanks to Robyn for the initial letter, I am confused though , Robyn, by the different name of recipient and addressee-- is it a similar anomaly to the one I mentioned about the Mayor?
Letter emailed:

I am writing to you concerning the evil and disgraceful behavior of three teenagers in your district, who have beheaded a little dog named Rigsby. I am appalled at what they have done, and cannot understand the delay in charging them. They have boasted openly about this crime by placing evidence on the internet, so why has prosecution not swiftly followed?.

This is a despicable act and one that will not be tolerated by a civilized society. As a part of that civilized society I am encouraging you to prosecute any and all individuals involved in this egregious crime. No matter how small a part played they should all be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

The fact that after committing this atrocity, those people had the audacity to show off their handiwork on "YouTube", shows that they had time to think about what they had done. This can only lead one to believe that they had no sympathy, compassion or felt any empathy for poor little Rigsby, whom they had kidnapped several weeks previously.
Thus, I also would like to encourage you to ask for the heaviest sentencing allowable under your laws.

We cannot allow abuse of defenseless animals to go on being unpunished, or punished just as a property crime. The trauma, sorrow and loss felt by Rigsby's caretakers will linger with them for ever. The horrific way in which he died will haunt them forever. Nothing will ever take that picture out of their minds or ease their pain.

Please charge these people with felony animal cruelty and any other charges which you think appropriate. Please do not hesitate to do this as soon as possible.

Humans are the only beings who commit this sort of act. why are humans given so much leniency? Why are animals killed when they defend themselves and bite some human? Why is not the same punishment to humans for hurting animals intentionally, just for fun? When are the alws of this land, and every other country going to realize that animals are God's creations, just as humans are, and they are innocent of any viciousness...Absolutely horrific.

We have to think over the case of the poor dog. I could not make myself a complete picture of what happened but I'll suppose that the girls (it appears to me that there three of four girls involved) have done a very sick act. I do not take stand from the cruelty against an animal have been committed, no, this is clear, it was an atrocity.
But crimes, as such, have not to be punished, this is a stupid "justice behavior", today, as an adult, after a lot of experience, I start to think that it is not simply correct to kill a cockroach (I do not know a single human that like these animals - indeed they are highly intelligent) and I have killed many of them. Did you too? Well I never did this to have pleasure, but because I "hate" them, I am afraid of the diseases they can pass over to me,
and finally, and plainly, I do not like them. What is the difference from my behavior to the behavior of these kids? shall you ask the justice to jail me for killing cockroaches? And they have not to be killed, they have a place in our ecosystem, do you know that? So we have to be careful with this event. I shall not call it a crime, but I do consider that these kids have to pass for an educational session to understand what they have done and to learn that the next step is to kill a human, yes.

I am very worried that in an attempt to get something posted and noted on YouTube that there will be copy-cat crimes. I am hoping the sentencing for these poeple will be so harsh that it will scare others and keep them from posting any more sick actions there.

Poor Rigsby....Looks like sweet baby. His owner must be devastated. The three will only go on to larger prey to kill. Typically, this torture & killing of small animals is where serial killers often, not always, stem from. They progress to larger acts of cruelty, until it escalates into killing of humans.

But let me say these kicks need to come back to them, an eye for an eye & a tooth for a tooth! They would certainly think long & hard before ever attempting to injure another animal. Laws have to protect our innocent & defenseless animal friends from likes of these three sadistic murderers. What kind of humans do this to loving animals, it is just unthinkable that this kind of cruelty can possibly exist! What is our world becoming when we let this continue, it keeps getting worst by the day! THIS MUST STOP! Give them back the same medicine they dished out! RIP Rigsby sweet defenseless little dogie.

Good grief. I always think I have become incapable of being shocked anymore by the depths to which some subhumans will stoop to satisfy their sick urges. I am forever wrong. That girls would engage in such anti-social behavior with glee sickens and saddens the heart. What will become of future generations if girls, who are generally infused by nature with gentleness and nurturing instincts, abandon them in an effort to prove their "toughness?" What manner of sick, selfish and anti-social behaviors will be passed on to their spawn and become the future norm?

I don't know the answer to this disturbing trend, but perhaps accountability for derelict parents would be a good first step. In the meantime, those of us who cherish and value animals must be their advocates and firmly insist on harsh penalties that more accurately reflect the heinous nature of these cowardly crimes.

I don't think I can go look at the photos either...

some people have mentioned 'where are these girl's parents?' - but I think the better question is 'WHERE WERE ALL OF THE ADULTS IN THESE GIRL'S LIVES??' ...not just parents, but teachers, school councilors, family friends, etc... there had to have been some sorts of warning signs that there was something wrong going on and needed to be dealt with before this ever happened. this didn't have to happen - why did no one take any action? this isn't just the failure of the parents (though they certainly are also at fault) but of many more people than that...

so very sad to see... and even more sad that we seem to be seeing so very much of these sorts of things these days.

I will write, and I will personalize my letter. The act done by bodies purporting to be humon is so senseless, so cruel, as to be beyond words. I could not look at the videos, the pictures are just too mindful of what the person(s) who set our home on fire did to our precious kitties. It's been nearly a year now, but we still cry for them.. they were such innocents.
New and far more stringent laws need to passed throughout the world, treating the horrific things done to pets, and strays, to bring them under the same possible punishment that one would get if they did similar to a tiny child. No, I know, animals are not babies, yet they ARE innocents!
To put these creeps (all involved or knowledgeable of the act) need not be imprisoned, since they would only get out and do similar again, while costing us the taxpayers money. They need an island of ostracism to send this type of criminal to, where they can live only among those of like kind. Only when that is done can we hope to remove these from society. It would be so inexpensive to patrol an island (hopefully surrounded by sharks who are lured with blood), helicopter patrols, only dropping them in with the barest essentials - such as some seeds to grow, a puptent for one, a small hand trowel. No knives, no weapons of any kind. The gangs would form their own 'justice system', that they're free to live in. Let them be sterilized before they're sent there, so there would be no innocent children born into that society.

after reading this yesterday another thing occurred to me....

does anyone know if any of these parents have any other children at home in addition to the ones involved in this incident?

..if they do, I think we need to get them out of those homes ASAP and straight into some therapy - so we can maybe help keep this from happening with any younger siblings, etc.

...though when I mentioned this incident to my mom, her comment was that even if therapy didn't work with any other children these people have, at least we'd like to know which direction the threat could be coming from...

Knowing that I live in a world where these teenagers & others like them will become adults around me & my friends....it scares me.

These girls need to be given serious psychiatric treatment after conviction.

What a damn shame. And you ask, when is it going to stop?!? Is isn't going to stop until this JOKE of a so called frickin Legal System that we have STOPS making a MOCKERY of this so called frickin Legal System that we have and starts punishing these #&%$?&$# to NOT only the fulles extent of the Law but to make even HARSHER PENALITIES for Animal Cruelaity / Animal Abuse / Animal Neglect . The Law has got to realize the Value of a Life whether it be a Human Life or an Animal life and to set down Laws that Govern such abuses. In my opinion, Animal Abuse in all for should be regarded as a Hate Crime or at least when they are done in such a way as this, they should have set down a category for it cut it just take put hatred to do such an act as this.
An act such as this is sick but the act is nothing but an act of hatred. Dont go around in these post and talk about how sick the person was that did this to this animal or any other animals that thing like this happen to as these Animal Abusers Attorneys read these Post and then submit them to the Courts as Evidence that even the Public eye agrees that these people must be sick or insane and then they get them off on an insanity plea. Don't do it folks! We want these people to pay, pay, pay! I know this as my mom was an Attorney and she used the exact same thing to get one of her Clients off one time and he was guilty as sin!

WARNING.. This is sick. If you are sensitive you may not want to read any further. This was recently posted on Facebook. I cannot vouch for this person. I am just letting you know one version of the story.

Tower Cat From the *same* user on a popular image board
I went to school with her and used to know her pretty well. I'm friends with her "sister." She lives like 10 minutes away from me. Basically, her "friends" brought in a dog they said was theirs and they wanted to keep the skull to remember it by. She said ok and let the...m take pictures because she thought they were her friends. The pictures got out, someone posted on /b/, and anon took action. They reported it to the police and she was arrested on charges of illegal taxidermy. It made the San Antonio newspaper, (express? i dont remember) Little brother told me every one in his high school was talking about it. Dog was already dead when she did it. Not really trying to defend her, she's a furry, give her what she deserves. Just letting the true story out. She doesnt live with her parents, with some crazy old lady that takes in all the "problem" children in the neighborhood. It's actually a badass party house, if there's a drug you want, you can find it there. Dog belongs to Mikeys neighbour, Mikey takes it as his own and names it Shadow (originally it was Rigsby). Mikeys mother does not let him have the dog so he gives it to Wolfie. Rigsby jumps the fence and runs into the street and gets clipped by a car. The dog had limped back to the house where Raz, Chelsey and Wolfie find it. Wolfie being a complete fucking psycho says she needs to "put the dog down" (not the dog is limping, thus very much alive) Raz panics and helps some bypasser to help the dog, Wolfie goes mental and tells them all to go the fuck away, being the dumbshits they are, they leave Wolfie alone with the dog and go back inside. Wolfie pulls out A FUCKING SWORD and and chops the dogs head off. Chelsu takes the pictures. That is what happened. The dog was "hit" by a car but was pretty much fine and needed to be taken to the vet, they are all psychos.

Today people are fed all the time with negative things in the media. Many parents do not have any moral anymore and some "forces" do anything to keep people down. It is to be expected that more bad things like this will happen in the future. If the public does not make any efforts to come back to old values and just watches and says "Oh how terrible", things will get only worse. It is not enough to have just an opinion about things. Nothing changes just by having an opinion, and complaining on other people does not have any effect.

I wish the judge carry such sentence, no matter how hard or heavy it is, so that he might show that he/she cares, not solely about Rigsby, but also about the development and education of teenagers and alike in his/her area, so everyone may learn that every life form worth equal respect.

I went to the movies on Sunday (to see New Moon) and I was amazed by the idiocy of hundreds and hundreds of parents who bring children under the age of 5. The movie I went to see was not very violent, but I think it was way too intense for children under 5, but what is really disturbing is the "Previews"; there was a preview for Avatar, one for Sherlock Holmes and one for the Imaginarium of Dr. Parnesius (or something like that) - violence, violence, violence, and more extreme violence. . .just in these previews. We are definitely desensitizing our children and teaching them that extreme violence is perfectly acceptable and the best way to resolve conflicts. There is almost nothing on TV that doesn't show that violence is the best way to solve our problems and the more violent the "good guys" are, the better. I am very afraid of what the world will be like when these 5 year olds become teenagers. These parents will have no one to blame but themselves.

I read all 4 articles on this, and the last one says the dog was not alive when it was beheaded. Thank goodness. Aparently it was hit by a pick-up and instead of taking it to a vet they killed it, then cut off it's head. HORRIBLE. I feel so sorry for the family whose dog he was, and for the dog. I think the stories of the teens involved are questionable at best. I hope they all get some serious jail time for this. I don't know about Texas law, but here in Wisconsin, it is illegal to kill an animal that does not belong to you. I can't believe something cannot be done to these sickos.

Noted. This is so horrific. These teenagers are mentally ill. I don't know if rehabilitation could help them. They certainly need to spend the rest of their lives where they cannot do any damage to animals or people. Let's face it - if they'll do this to an animal, they can't be too far behind with doing it to a person!

As much as we would like to see these sociopaths behind bars for a long, long time, I don't think even that would change their sociopathy. People who can commit such unconscionable acts are not going to be deterred by any threat of incarceration. I would, however, like to see them incarcereated in a pschiatric institution for extensive evaluation and then they should have to register as persons who have committed heinous crimes against animals. I don't see this happening anytime soon, but it's the only thing that might prevent them from doing it again.

These are sick kids that end up doing more horrible things, if they haven't already and just haven't been found out. They need to be taken out of society and given psychiatric treatment. Though their minds will probably never be right.. This is the results of desensitizing our young through sick violent movies and video games , which most are to stupid to see.

There is a petition somewhere to sign to get legislation passed that would require animal abusers to be on a registry like sex offenders. I think this might help - at least it would let us know if there were sociopaths living next door to us or down the street. I think this is legislation that really needs to be passed at a Federal level - I think we have a right to know what kind of monsters are in our midst. I think it's sponsored by HSUS or PETA, I'm sure you could Google it - if I get some time I'll try to find it and post it here. My daughter is so concerned about what kind of world we are living in, that she's not going to have children.

This has to be the most disgusting sick thing that I have ever heard. If I had the power to get my hands on these sickos, i would take delight in ripping off their heads and sticking them up their rear ends.People like this have no right to live. I hope they rot in hell.!! This precious life that they took was one of God's creatures and was so innocent and only wanted to love and be loved. I don't even think that God created these rotten excuses for humans. The devil himself had a hand in giving these maggots life.

I think one of wolfie's friends/pack members killed his self. so justic is served. apparenty he got bullied for being a "werewolf at heart" so bad, he hung himself with his leash. it could be a rumor.
