Police are looking for the couple who moved out of the house and say that criminal charges "are possible."

Are possible? Uh, it sounds pretty cut & dry to me...

"possible" charges??? I would LOVE for all those with no compassion to put themselves in this situatuion. This is sick and could have been prevented if someone had a BRAIN or a HEART.

Why, why, why would anyone tie them up and leave them to starve?

"charges are POSSIBLE?" Does this mean if they find the scumbags who did this, they may not face charges????? these poor animals and the fear and pain they endured! How is this possible in a world in which information is out there about shelters? Why didn't the neighbors do something when they must have heard the animals crying????????? They should prosecute the neighbors also for not helping!!! Are people so heartless that they don't want to get involved when it comes to some one's life--be it animal or human? This kind of thing seems to be happening over and over......why can't there be a gov.division which checks dwellings when someone moves????? It should be a standard procedure to send a person out to make sure the former tenants haven't left an animal behind, left the gas on, etc...when they is it that this isn't a common thing to do? Don't landlords, real estate, property management, banks, etc...check the property after someone moves? This is such a hideous crime...I certainly wish the absolute worst for these sickening people who did this. What heartless, hideous, evil s##heads people can be!

Donna, they do it just because, because they are not well in their minds or simply they are delinquents, horrible, they don't even let them free.

What the hell do you mean criminal charges are possible? I guess the RCMP don't care about getting their man and woman when it is just a couple of dogs and a cat that have been starved to death. Really disappointed as a Canadian.

This is pure horror.I can't tell if it's the way what happened is reported here, the overall tone of indifference is offensive.Knowing where they live and possible charges? I hope rescue is on this out there.That cat may still be alive? If these are the owners animals charges should be definite.Cop sounds like he' could care less.I hope that's the reporting and not a reflection of the what is going to be done to serve justice.

There had better be charges in a cruelty case like this .These people belong locked in prison with no food for awhile

God knows what these poor babes went through when the family was there! Their actions are void of any compassion, caring and love, so I question why they ever had these animals in the first place. Criminal charges hopefully will be laid when they are located and their pictures should be put in the papers for all to see. They should never ever again be allowed to have the privilege of having a pet.

This is positively sickening! I don't know a thing about Canadian laws, but I hope those people (whom I hardly can call "humans" or even "persons") will be found AND punished.
In France, we have very strict laws against cruelty towards animals : acts of cruelty may lead to up to TWO YEARS in prison + fine of 30,000 -thirty thousand- euros (for those of you who understand French:

I am beyond anger. There is no need for this horrific behavior. This is a crime which requires an immediate and accountible punishment. There are safe shelters and certainly other ways to rehome a pet or any animal. An act such a this was done with malice and premeditation. I for one want these people caught and severely punished. They should not be allowed the responsibility of children as they are certainly not capable of loving care and custody. I cannot impagine the fear and pain these poor creatures suffered. I can only hope their cross over to rainbow ridge was peaceful and they are now enjoying the quality of life they deserve and missed. God Bless them for their suffering and the bravery and companionship they shared during their last moments. The punishment of the violators should equal the pain they caused these poor animals to endure.

Another terrible tragidy about poor animals being neglected and abused. The worse is yet to be found out about! Sometimes, I just don't want to know what's happening to animals around the world.

Completely stunned.. no words.. just tears.. I live in Canada,, I would sure like to know exactly where this took place,, anywhere near my home and I'LL hunt down the creeps who did this to these poor animals! ..Gentle loving prayers to the little ones who parished from this horrible abuse.. Rest in peace little ones.. Prayers for the survivor,, oh I hope they find a good home for that sweet thing.. a home where it will never be left alone ever.

How can a human being do this. Until that stricter laws are put in place this will happen again and again. There are a lot of sick people out there.

You cant expect normal behavior from an abnormal personality. These assholes did it because they can. I hope they are located and thrown in jail and meet Bubba. If this was a rental property--where was the landlord? Disgusting. Makes me ashamed to be a Canadian.

Hey, I'm with all the people that have a heart and know what needs to be done here. A'HOLES like these need to be held responsible for what they did and obviously knowing what the expected or WANTED the outcome to be. I am so heartbroken to read about A-hole people doing these tortures to HELPLESS lives. I sometimes wish I could be maybe a rabid wolf that could give ALL of these whatsie lackie...useless rejects a good hard painful bite that would cause them to die and know that there was absolutely nothing they could do about it, very slowly while they starve and are locked in a place where NO ONE would bother looking to find them, this may seem harsh but how can we, all of us together even, stop this, there is a song on METOLOGY #4 by Judas Priest called Feed On Me(song number 14), Tim Owens(The Ripper) ex-Iced Earth front man-singer leads the way of true words on this one, if you listen to it and think of all that happens each and every day to critters of all kinds due to man's I'll behavior, this song will be the animals voice, they always forgive as we make broken promises, they trust-we betray...This is a powerful emotional song, a lot of guitar but so down to the real awful earth we are trapped on with A-holes that need to be made an example of in a way that OTHERS like this will learn one way or another, I do believe that all these petitions help some what but not enough since Government any where you live is easily BOUGHT-PAID OFF so I suppose there is only a few ways left to make LIFE a reality for these little critters, if you want to hear this song and can not find it look me up on My Space Rainey Daze-Florida(I'm the only one in Florida under this name)I will have it on my page as my favorite. Thanks for reading and having a heart for the ones who really need us, Rainey Daze

Disgusting!! Even more disgusting that charges 'may be possible'. That is not right! When these people are found they should definately be charged and serve time. I can't imagine that it could be that hard to find these people.
