This slovenly, disgusting bastard needs to die a worse death than that poor puppy. I wish (God forgive me) we could get him the day he gets out of jail and exact true punishment and real justice on his ugly, nasty, loathsome, bastardly ass!!!

Wow so much bark here, doubt there's any bite to back it though. Keyboard warriors hah. This guy doesn't belong in jail, he belongs in a metal institution. He suffers from paranoid schizophrenia at the very least. He killed his father in 1983 when he was a teenager. Very troubled person. Maybe ya'll should take 5minutes to do some research before you condemn someone.

After reading post of Jen S. 11/2/11 @ 5:31pm, I feel compelled to revise my own post.

John S. Hanusman of the Muskegon Chronicle's article of 11/2/11 @ 10:55am states that Timothy Allen Cregg was found not guilty in the 1983 shotgun murder of his father "BY REASON OF INSANITY" and ordered to spend an INDEFINITE PERIOD OF TIME in an APPROPRIATE STATE PSYCHIATRIC INSTITUTION (diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenia).

In actuality, how did this sentence play out? Any follow-up after being unleashed back into society? And now this new tune-up of the same old, same old rebirthed. Enough already, recommit, try again.

This man suffers from paranoid schizophrenia, as pointed out by Penny. He was found "not guilty" of murdering his father by reason of insanity. Why was this man not institutionalized? It seems that the system failed Timothy Cregg AND the puppy. I wonder how many other animals were brutalized by this sick man? Under the circumstances, I hope he's isolated from society for life.

It will bother me and getting to sleep will be difficult. I cannot bear the thought of animals abused....and this was absolutely horrendous. I hope this guy falls down the steps at prison, whacks his head on the way and then gets his throat slashed on the edge of the step, and then dies in a puddle of blood.

Noted and signed without hesitation and with a genuine feeling of horror! My heart goes out for the poor creature!

This man killed his puppy for chewing his blanket probably because no better idea of solving the problem had ever crossed his feeble, sick mind. It is of extreme importance to show him how unacceptable this is in our society by making him pay for it by doing time in jail (he certainly should not be let to bail himself out).

The worst thing, however, is that this is not an isolated case: If taken holistically, it is a sad reality that animals of various species and for a number of unjustifiable reasons, even for nothing (!), are neglected, ill-treated, abused, tortured, and killed on a daily basis. This societal problem can hardly be reduced to a few psychos, as it, frankly, runs much deeper...

Let me add... It was a great wrong what the man commited, and he should get what he deserves for it; however, no comment, however hateful, can cure or reform him, neither can it revive the poor puppy. Animals simply need better protection--something that they are still seriously lacking in. Animal rights remain an unresolved issue that deserves a lot of our attention.

Man definately needs the maximum sentence for this horrendous torture of such a beautiful pup! Rest in peace baby, no more abuse from an arse that didn't deserve your unconditional love in the first place. Have no words for that animal of a human, as it would do nothing to change the situation....Just want some justice for the puppy!

TY Barb for the forward, always willing to sign petitions for the voiceless and for justice! Forwarding too! TY Beth for the article.

This is just a share to show how these "non-humans" can start out doing bad things to animals and thinking nothing of it at all.

Someone mentioned here that it starts with children torturing animals, and also liking to see animals being killed. In my community last week this young boy all of 9 yrs. old has two dogs and one is a beautiful german shepard mix ~ I have feral cats in my area that I feed, one in particular "Beans" a calico cat, she was coming for her nightly meal when I overheard {from the window} this boy tell his dog to go "HUNT". I didn't believe my ears! The next night I heard screaming in the woods behind my townhouse (golf community) and I ran in the dark, barefoot to see what was happening, the dog was mauling my beautiful Beans to death with the kid in the woods watching it all and acting as if it bothered him. I had a panic attack needless to say and I was not going to allow this family to get away with this! They killed a cat, plain and simple. I called Animal Services on them, they came out here, fined the family $500 dollars and they got to keep the dog. I never wanted the dog to be put down, I just wanted it taken away from this family thats teaching this dog to kill. Found out that the dog has a police record too! Of killing small animals, what if it was a child or a baby that the dog mauled, then what? Once they get a taste for blood?

The worst part about this horrible incident is the child bragged the next day at the school bus stop to all the other small children that "his dog" hunted down and killed a cat! Bragging about it! That's where it starts though and that is the reason why I shared this experience with all here. It makes me wonder why the parents allow this behaviour and they did nothing to punish this boy, nothing!

As always...I am the voice for all the dogs in the neighborhood, as there was another dog outside last night about 11 pm and he was just pacing back and forth, I saw from my window, I quickly ran downstairs over to "Layla" thats her name and saw that she was drooling from the mouth and had her tail between her legs and the door to her townhome was slightly open. Indicating to me that she was just abused and didn't want to go back into the house, obviously. I could only gently put her in there, her not wanting to go, that I could see...but it was nitetime and she had no leash.
The next morning I was on the horn with Animal Services AGAIN and put in a report to go to their home to see if this beautiful dog is being neglected and/or abused! I am their voice! Let the neighbors hate me because I speak up, no one here is talking to, too bad! I don't care, if I save one animal, it's worth it to me.

I will continue to speak up for all the abused animals, children, elderly and all others that cannot speak for themselves. You all have a good heart here and thanks for caring so much about the voiceless.

Bless our voiceless ~

Poor Puppy, This is why it's so important to do thorough home visits, interviews, references, vet checks,contract and follow ups when anyone is seeking adoption for an animal. Never offer free to a loving home, or online adoptions, it should be no different than a human child adoption is.Cregg is a danger to the public and should not be allowed back into it.Thanks for posting Signed.

I had a puppy that chewed up something irreplaceable that my Dad gave me but it was my fault because I left it where the puppy could reach (even though I thought she couldn't)!

I didn't punish the puppy nor did it change my feelings towards her, after all she was only a baby.

But she and her brother came from an abused, hoarding situation home, and I couldn't imagine laying a finger on's my fault for leaving her alone to do it..

But I would very much like to have about 5 minutes alone time, (with amnesty!) with this guy before he goes to poor karma is just shaking her head...but I thought I also saw a wink, so there may be hope for me yet!

Why do I constantly see concern over sadistic, cruel, evil murder such as this linked to "doing it to people next"!? Isn't the torture visited upon this innocent creature egregious enough in its own right? Please! Enough of the slippery-slope argument! The murder of animals is evil. Period! And if he never touches a human being as long as he lives, this act will still stand on its own as being EVIL!

What a sad life - "Timothy Allen Cregg was found not guilty in the 1983 shotgun murder of his father by reason of insanity" - and thus let loose on society?? To me it's amazing that he only got to killing one poor animal after all these years - really concerned that the possibility's always been there for this 2-legged piece of filth, who probably views 'material goods' of more value than any form of life, to get into contact with/harm others, be it animals or people!

I do not believe for one moment that this is his only crime - just that it is the only one he's been found out about. How anything less than a jail sentence (a long one) could be considered I do not know. Personally I would have other punishments in mind but they are against the law.

He needs to be sentenced to the same kind of sentence as if he had done this to a person. Maybe then people would stop doing this! I hope that he gets beat to death in prison too! I know that some people will think that I am no better then he is by saying that, but at least he can try to defend himself!

He deserves maximum penalty, but one has to wonder what kind of punishment this guy got as a kid. He must be terribly disturbed and hope that some kind of therapy is included during his sentence or he will likely do the same thing again. What is he so angry about?
