Bassett Hound Set on Fire Dies
LA Times ^ | October 31, 2012 | Steve Chawkins

Posted on 10/31/2012 9:17:29 AM PDT by Bon of Babble

A 3-year-old basset hound named Buddy has died after being deliberately set on fire in a ravine outside Camarillo, authorities said Tuesday.

A neighbor in Camarillo Heights spotted a small blaze about 3:20 a.m. Saturday and called the Ventura County Fire Department. When firefighters arrived, they found Buddy severely burned.

Arson investigators discovered evidence that someone had poured lighter fluid on the dog, according to a news release from the Ventura County Sheriff's Office.

No arrests have been made. Buddy's owner, who was interviewed by investigators, was not identified.

A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.

Disgusting animals did this.

They little bastards (because its gonna be teenage boys) need to come to Maryland because city juries seem to think setting animals on fire is perfectly fine with one of the yoots here does it. Never can get a conviction on these cases here and it’s sickening.

Poor dog. What a vicious way to die.

There should be a special place in hell for people and I hate to use that term loosly for those that harm animals for the sheer joy of it.

I can only hope that this perpetrator gets back what he gave to that poor dog.

When the Democrat Party encourage the murder of human beings,
how easy is it for brainwashed youth to believe it is OK to murder animals.

I own a Basset Hound, they are nothing but lovable.

I cried when I heard this story this morning. A beautiful, elderly Bassett named “Beethnoven” just died in my neighborhood.

Anyone who does this to an innocent dog would do this to a human too!!

It gets worse. Just head during Rush’s show that the Bassett died..

Send the little bastards my way, my pit bull and Shih-Tzu don’t like animal abusers and neither do I.

Please do not offend animals by associating them with these feral,foaming demons.

I can’t imagine it. I just can’t. We love our dog. He’s a member of the family. I would defend him with my life, if need be, as I’m sure he would defend me.

We have a basset who lives right behind us who is such a sweetheart. When I do the gardening, he comes over and we have a chat through the fence. Great dogs.

A month or so ago, in Pennsylvania, a horse was doused with lighter fluid and burned, but last I heard he survived and is being treated. No suspects. I wonder if the perp is now in California?

I owned one too, and would PAY to get my hands on whoever did this.

Many serial killers begin by torturing and killing animals.

Doing this to a dog isn’t just a prank - its a sign of a very dangerous mind.

We are hearing too many of these stories. It is getting harder and harder to be a pet these days. There is apparently no limit to the cruelty that godless, souless people can dish out when they get desperate.

I hope someone pays the hellion who did this back in spades. I know I would if I caught him.

Evil. Absolutely nothing surprises me anymore.

Someone who would do this has the potential for being a serial killer. Hope they find the guilty person/s and make up a profile on them.

Evil, soulless bastards.

Unfortunately the animal rights nutbags will use stories like this to further their agenda. This election day they are trying to get a law passed here in North Dakota to make it a FELONY to be cruel to an animal. Lighting a dog on fire? Sure, I’d put away someone for that; mostly because that’s an indicator that they are the next Jeffrey Dahmer. But a FELONY for putting your own dog down or kicking a cat... sorry, I just can’t follow that.

‘Tis the season.

Tonight [and probably already, due to the full moon] thousands of animals will be tortured and killed for the pagan “holiday’.

And this is just one of many [usually 8] ‘holidays’ when it happens.

If you have a black cat or dog or a Germanic breed of dog, _keep it inside_ starting 2 weeks before Halloween until it’s over.

Well, before they reach hell there should be mandatory lobotomies for anyone doing such a heinous thing. So, instead of vicious little cretins we would have quiet little zombies.

How incredibly cruel.

I own a Bassett Hound, got her in March as a puppy. I cannot believe what a wonderful, happy, funny dog they are. She clearly exemplifies why a dog is man’s best friend.

To think that someone would do something so wicked and evil just makes me sick.

I never let my animals outside unattended anymore. It’s just common sense these days. My neighbor is as likely to be Jeffery Dahmer as he is to be Wally Cleaver. In my last neighborhood there was a rash of dog poisonings. Of course no one was ever caught. They never are.

My guess is Dachshund/Beagle. Based on this pix. Or Fox Terrier or Jack Russell in there instead of or additional to Beagle.

Don’t put people in the same category with animals. Anyone who could do this to an animal is a psychopath, with no feelings of remorse or loss.

That does NOT fit into the animal genus/species/phyla. (And don’t beat me up...it’s been a long time since my high school biology classes!)

Dogs are just little furry, dumb animals, who can’t tell you where they hurt or how they have been abused.

But God will separate the chaff from the wheat when it is Time.

Oh, so sorry!!

My neighbor who just lost her Bassett “Beethoven” told me there is a deadly cancer gene in the Bassett line.

She just adopted “Wilson” from a Bassett rescue, 19 months old and a Beagle/Bassett mix. She’s hoping the cancer gene isn’t in Wilson.

He’s a wonderful, playful dog with soft, beautiful fur. Gorgeous.

Lymphoma is what we are seeing. All but the pup have been rescues; we so wanted the experience of the whole life. Bassets are surprisingly soft. So many people petting ours for the first time are quite impressed with how soft they are.

For a lot of reasons.

Having dealt with it a long time ago in my rescue years, I really don’t want to talk about it, especially with what I’m going through with my puppy.

Please just keep any Germanic breeds inside.

You are a wise owner.

Despite the fact that my dog yard is locked and surrounded by a 6 foot wood fence, whenever they’re out there, I’m out there...watching.
