Fears missing dogs are victims of 'ritual execution'
DailyMail ^ | March 21, 2013 | Daniel Miller

Fears have been raised over the mysterious disappearance of around 30 dogs in southern Idaho after a missing German shepherd was found with its head crushed in a suspected ritual killing.

Animal control officials raised the alarm after dogs of various sizes, breeds and ages mysteriously began to vanish.

'The dogs seem to vanish into thin air,' said Debbie Blackwood, director of the animal shelter in Twin Falls, Idaho.

Officials say some 30 dogs have gone missing in recent months in Twin Falls and nearby communities in an agricultural region in south-central Idaho known as the Magic Valley.

A man and his young daughter hiking along the north rim of the Snake River Canyon northeast of Twin Falls earlier this month discovered the remains of a German shepherd that had apparently been stoned to death, Blackwood said.

The dog, found in an area known as the Devil's Corral in neighboring Jerome County, appeared to have suffered a 'ritualistic execution' in which its head was crushed with rock and its carcass covered with a purple cloth, she said.

The case has prompted the Humane Society of the United States to offer a $5,000 reward for information leading to a conviction in the dog's death.

In the South its no ritualistic killing, its dog fighters using pet dogs that have been dog-napped to train killer pit bulls. The diverse neighborhoods are notorious for this.

It’s outrageous, however let’s consider the most egregious insult inflicted upon the unborn infants that are hideous stalked and murdered daily by the thousands. I’ll offer a 5,000 dollar reward foe everyone saving an unborn child from murder.

Our next door neighbor lost their kids pet to this. Other neighbors saw a van parked in the road in front of their house and someone pulling their dog into the van. Beautiful dog too. Friendly. Would come sit with me while I gardened.

Maybe, but Idaho is anything but “diverse”.

Like someone or group of someones try to steal my dogs. Our male Giant Great Pyrenees weighs 211 lbs of pure muscle and power. He is so fast he can run down Coyotes, crushes their skull with one bite. He’s very gentle yet extremely protective of his family, and his Sheep. Running along side of him is his daughter who weighs 188lbs, equally fast yet gentle around our grandchildren who often climb on her back for a ride. They together hear and see everything and Roam the property all night long. So Dog nappers, be aware and be very afraid and I don’t want to bury any chewed up human carcass in the garden.

There are plenty of abortion threads, if discussing that is your preference.

Animal abuse and mistreatment is worthy of discussion of its own right.

Poor dog.

Hopefully the neighbors at least did more than relay the bad news (say, getting a description of the van and license plate, per minimum).

Apparently so.

Seems to me that God created both man and beast, and has concern for both. Seems to me that He expects us to care about the mistreatment or abuse of both as well.

Satanists grab animals before the 4 great Sabbats and the 4 lesser Esbats.

We just had the Equninox which is a cross quarter day/great Esbat.

They want black animals of any kind and for dogs, they prefer “Germanic” breeds.

There is more of this happening than people are willing to admit.

I’ve worked with the SPCA and you don’t want to ‘clean up’ after their “holidays’.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheel_of_the_Year

Next up is Walpurgisnacht on April 30.

It is a blood sacrifice as is Beltane/May Day, following.

Some “aryan” neo-pagans also observe Hitler’s birthday [April 20] and several other more obscure dates and most neo pagans observe full moons and dark moons.

Keep your animals indoors and do not let them run unattended in your yards, even during broad daylight.

They can snatch your pet so fast you won’t even notice until it’s too late.

When I was in my teens, the ‘local dove hunters’ were bad to drive around the area after dark, catching any cat in their lights and executing them immediately because they believed cats kill too many doves. never mind that these same ‘hunters’ never failed to get their limits when dove season opened. I had one of my close little friends executed this way with a .22 short to the head beside the road.

Maybe, but Idaho is anything but “diverse”.

In the agricultural areas, it most certainly is. Lots of "migrant" workers from south of the U.S. border. There are areas so bad in some towns/counties, that the EMTs won't venture into them without police backup.

It got worse there in the 80s/90s when they forced new labor laws about kids working farms into effect. I worked the fields topping corn in the early 80s - made good money for a punk pre-teen.

This is the country. Unfortunately they weren’t close enough to see tag identification.

I think about that dog every time I garden.

“biggest dog I have ever had was a Rhodesian Ridgeback at his heaviest weight (muscle not fat) was about 135. He was gentle and protective, great dog!”

I just “binged” images of the RR breed and what a beautiful dog! I’ve been considering adding a dog to my security plan and I thank you for mentioning this breed. It looks like it just might be the perfect choice for me.

Would one of those be OK in a small house with a small yard? I wouldn’t want to bring any dog into my home and end up with that choice leading to a frustrated pal....My last dog was a lab and she was happy just hanging with me.

You can have a large breed dog in a small apartment. But consider if you have time to give it the necessary outdoor exercise and walks every day.

If that’s too much a breed like a chihuhua or a French bulldog would be happy being indoors and won’t make too many demands on your time. Or better still, get a dog-like cat.

I’m a bit ahead of the apartment game. ;-). I have a smallish house on a small, fenced in yard, so I’m think I can avoid settling for a cat.
