UPDATE - 6/8/13: According to a local Bulgarian newspaper the police found the 55 yr old sadist. It says nothing about arresting him, but it indicates that police are investigating. The dog is said to be alive and admitted to a vet clinic for treatment.

UPDATE - 6/10/13: We have very bad news regarding the tortured dog.... According to the latest information, the animal is alive, has been taken to a vet for some basic treatment and then RETURNED to the monster-owner, who tortured him sadistically a day ago!

We continue the campaign and the pressure. A petition will follow shortly...




Attention: The Public Prosecutor, Plovdiv Region, ph: 00359 32 600 403

Dear Sir,

I am outraged by the barbaric treatment of a dog captured on a photo, which was published on Facebook on 7th Jun, 2013.
I understand that the animal was subjected to this heinous torture very recently and that it happened somewhere in the Plovdiv Region, Bulgaria.

I respectfully ask you to investigate the crime, punish the perpetrator who tied the dog and dragged it behind a car with registration number РВ 5730 АР, as shown on the photo.

Yours sincerely,

(Please, state your full name)

Уважаеми г-н Окръжен прокурор,

Безкрайно ме възмути садистичното отношение към куче, което е запечатано на снимка, публикувана във Facebook на 7 юни 2013 г..
Разбирам, че животното в било подложено на това жестоко изтезание съвсем наскоро, и че се е случило някъде в пловдивска област.

Почтително Ви моля да разследвате престъплението, и да откриете и накажете извършителя завързал и влачил кучето зад кола с регистрация
номер РВ 5730 АР, както е показано на снимката.

С уважение,

It is very dangerous to help RAYCHO DIMITROV IVANOV escape punishment, because someday this heinous individual may decide to hurt a human! He obviously does not distinguish between good and evil! We are shocked by the cruelty demonstrated not only by the sadistic"owner", but by the policeman who found the agonizing dog and handed it back to his tormentor and murderer! Shame on you Bulgaria!

Yours sincerely,

I hope this gets noted so people see it enough to attempt to try something .
There should be a huge amount of letters going out.

I feel as if they will be ignored for the most part so they must be sent in abundance!

These stories never stop and the fact that he was given back to the owner in a day tells us they probably don't care what happens to this poor soul.

The email/letter needs to overwhelm someone.

This picture brought me to tears. How in the world can anybody ever do that ?!?! It just goes beyond my understanding. Can you imagine the hopelessness and suffering/pain of this dog ?! This person should be put in jail and pay for every vet bill for the dog without ever getting it back (seriously ?! What else ?!) nor be allowed to get another animal. This is sicker than sick and unforgivable. Letter sent ! Sadly noted.

Do not expect anything good of a policeman to return the poor innocent dog back to his abuser! God Bless this poor dog as he may decide to do this again. WTH is wrong with this is that abuser needs to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law & the dog be placed in a safe & loving home. I send e-mail. Thanks Julie.

I would like to apologize for my statement the other day stating that Bulgaria was a third world country filled with orphanages and what do you expect. I guess I had too much wine and truthfully was thinking of another country. Bulgaria is a beautiful country from which one of my friends is from and I won't repeat what he called me which is well deserved. This atrocity happens in the United States probably every day and when they are caught, even though arrested the punishment does not fit the crime. I signed the petition and hope this makes a difference as we are trying to get stiffer Punishments like incarceration. Once again I apologize to the Country of Bulgaria for my offensive remark which was totally uncalled for, and to Bonnie who I believe I truly offended who has written this petition. When you are wrong you are wrong.

This story has been all over facebook and other sites, but I am sure some details changed. Like the dog is dead not alive as was reported earlier. There is a letter circulating from the dr who performed the autopsy on him. I wish I could tell you all where it was but I can't remember.It is amazing to me that the police returned the dog, injured beyond imagination, to the owner! I hope someone is following up on them! Why THEU didn't rush the dog to a vet to at the very least STOP his SIFFERING! I hear that the poor unfortunate dog lived for 1-2 days afterwards, still being tortured! This is unacceptable from any human being. I don't care what country or how ignorant the populace!

I realize that is doesn't matter what country the person was from that committed this heinous act but I categorized a whole country which is wrong, we have plenty of sick abusers in this country but we can't blame everyone for their actions. We need to stop these atrocities no matter where they happen.
