A Live Dog To Be Sacrified, Via Internet Myspace.com

Apparently, some idiots gave a dog (pug) to some 18 year old, who now says that on Wednesday (at 12:00 a.m.) September 20th, he is going to "set this dog free" (meaning kill it).... His MYSPACE>COM announcement of this event is truly sickening.

I saw this posting from a Washington, D.C. /Northern Virginia Craigslist...and I checked this monster's MYSPACE blog page (or whatever you call that) and apparently its true (that he wrote it anyway). He says that he's going to "sacrifice" a live dog on Sept. 20th at some unknown place in Richmond, Virginia. I contacted the person who posted the ad and told her what I would do (if I were still back in VA) and she's going to try it with the Richmond SPCA.

I suggested she "bait" the kid and pretend to be another teenager (kinda like the Perverted Justice sting they do with Chris Hanson) and say that you want the kid to kill your StepMom's annoying XXX (whatever)....talk his lingo, act like you agree with him, etc. ... do do whatever, you can think of something to get this monster to meet you at a some mall with an undercover copy somewhere in hiding, etc. ...lie, do whatever it takes, make them think its for real ... etc.

---the following is what I copied from Craigslist -------
Kid is going to kill his dog!!! Please contact police and report this sick *******!!

I was told by someone that you could contact CNN and somewhere on their website is a place where you can request that they "do a story" and everyone is encouraged to show outrage and to try to find this boy, via his computer, wherever he really is at and rescue this dog before it is killed on videotape. :pray:

People on another board mass emailed cnn, and got an email back from animal control this morning. They are aware of what's happening.

She also got a reply from the police...
Isn't much anyone else can do at this point least not really. They are all aware.

Thank you for your inquiry. The Richmond Police Department Internet Crimes Unit is investigating. The initial investigation indicates that the posting is the result of a class assignment at an area university in which students were asked to make a dog famous using the internet. If you have any further questions or comments, please contact the Richmond Police Department Internet Crimes Unit directly. Thank you

Yes, the authorities are aware -- they were "aware" yesterday but the Richmond, VA SPCA is not the biggest outfit that can do this -- they just do not have the resources alone. Meaning, if the authorities are aware and we're talking about the Richmond authorities, then I still think action is needed by the public -- a lot of public outpouring! It might help find this monster if we all do what is asked below. (I am from Virginia and I know its not the most savvy of outfits there) ....they do not have the resources like a major TV company to find this teenager in time to save this dog's life!




here is the latest update from the lady in Richmond, Virginia

please EVERYONE, just do this -- try it -- it only takes a second or two and maybe it will work. there's no harm in at least trying!

================= here is what she wrote today ==========

I went on to CNN.com and found something that you can fill out and send to them, a news story. We need as many people as possible to fill this out because if they annouce it over the news that sick guy will be tracked down one way or another. Here is the link - http://www.cnn.com/exchange/ireports/topics/forms/breaking.news.html

Please every do this! Be sure to post that picture of oscar the pug that is on that guys profile pictures along with what hes gonna do and his myspace page. PLEASE!
The more people who send it in the more likley CNN is to broadcast it!

If you don't know what I'm taking about go here

And read Oscar about to be set free

I can only pray that this is an elaborate hoax (for the sake of the dog) but when I went back out to this punk's website, he apparently is aware that some people claim its just a hoax and he claims that the event is still going forward.

I don't know what to believe but I'm tired of feeling helpless about it happening. I don't know what else anyone could do, except the "authorities" (whoever that may really be) and check it out in whatever manner they can. Surely to God they can get ahold of someone at MYSPACE.COM and get the guy's computer location. It can be done, just not by us average folks.

Pray, everyone, that this is just a hoax and if we've been duped, then so be it.

When i check his myspace, it says it has been deleted or I am not an authorised "friend" or something.

This is sick even if it is a hoax.
A very real reason to rethink " Free to good home"

I'm glad he got removed. He just lost his 15 minutes before it started.

The lady who first told me about this, from the Washington, D.C. section of "Craigslist" wrote me and told me that it was just a hoax, that Oscar was actually the professor's dog.....apparently, because of the outrage, the site was removed. (I'd like to hope that's true).

I've asked her to find out what college this kid was at, as I'm going to get that stupid professor's name....AND EMAIL ADDRESS SO I CAN GIVE HIM A PIECE OF MY REDNECK-WEST-VIRGINIAN-TURNED-MINNESOTAN MIND !!! And if I do get it, I'll be sure and pass along so that everyone can do the same.

I agree it is sick, but I think the more you react, the more they get what they want.
IMO the best thing to do with a@#$%@#s like that is to ignore them- that's the worst punishment they can have.:evil:

His MySpace ID and page was removed by Tom the MySpace Moderator. We live in West Virginia, not far from where this guy lived, I emailed the news channel here and sent them a link, but now his page is gone.

Good to hear that the pug is safe. but I have to admit that a person who can come up with this idea and execute that 'ad campaign' still gives me the willies.:frustrated:
