[b]Lehigh Acres, FL[/b] (News-Press) -- The gray and silver terrier mix may have fought and thrashed to escape before it died, but didn't have a chance.

The dog was found hanging from a large oak tree in Buckingham on Wednesday and police and animal services officials are seeking information from the public about the circumstances surrounding its death.

The dog may have been hanged while alive, according to the Lee County Domestic Animal Services incident report and Glenn Johnson, animal services operations manager.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office received two calls about 8 a.m. Wednesday from area residents and notified animal services, Johnson said. The animal was discovered in an area of dirt roads on the east side of Homestead Lane between Staley and Neal roads.

Its leash was tied to a nylon rope, the report said.

The adult male dog had marks around its neck, and appeared as if the dog had thrashed around trying to escape, Johnson said. A necropsy will be performed to determine the exact manner of death.

"It's a felony charge, a third-degree felony for someone to intentionally kill an animal, especially this way," Johnson said. "That would be a nasty individual who would do that to any living being." :(

Anyone with information is asked to call Animal Services at 239-533-7387 or Crime Stoppers at 800-780-8477. You can also text Crime Stoppers.

"All you hope is that somebody talks about it," Johnson said.

It boggles my mind when I hear about this kind of thing, or animal cruelty in general. How could anyone do this to an animal? :(

I thought I was going to stay in Fribourg this weekend, but now I want to head back to Geneva and see my dogs.

As a dog owner, the man or woman that did this should be charged with murder, because it is murder, but they don't consider it murder because the dog is not human.

Why the hell would you do this to a dog? This is boggles my mind of how sick (in the bad term) this is. I hope whoever done this goes to jail. This is not a cool thing to do with a living creature especially man's best friend...

I wish when things like this happens and they found the person who did it. I wish they'd advertise their name and address. So some of us can give them the exact same treatment.

Find them, hang them from a tree, skin them alive, poor vinegar over them, shoot them.

I'm a firm believer for dogs & cats and other domestic pets should be treated as human, then if anyone kills them etc they should be charged as if it were a human.

This is the type of human being I would gladly trade his/her life for the dog's.

But we can murder innocent babies and that is ok? While what this moron did was reprehensible, where is the outrage when human life is snuffed out in the womb?

This is one of those instances where eye-for-eye, tooth-for-tooth, sounds appropriate.

It's very important that they catch who did it as much as they would catch someone who murdered a human, because if someone does this to an animal in this fashion, the chances are that they will go on to murder a human as well.

As a dog owner I find this sick, hope they catch the person/people responsible for this.

Sadly enough, where I live it's pretty common to feed your dog only the scraps that you have as a left over, not walk them, kick them, throw rocks at them,....
It's very sad to see, funny enough, like many here posted, people who have no respect for animals have no respect for human life.
Only a week ago a very well respected person from our little community got brutally murdered for petty cash.

Didn't realize babies could survive by themselves outside the womb!! Tell me, how did you get to the age you are? Fed and clothed yourself. Changed your diapers yourself? Last time I checked a baby in the womb is still a baby and thus a life.

[/quote]i forgot to add the limit of the 12-24 week limitation of abortion in most countries. As in they can't survive no matter how much we try to help.

No, because that would mean killing animals for meat would be murder as well. If you're suggesting that simply because the manner of death was cruel does that mean you'd be okay if the animal had been killed in a humane way?

As with most things, humans are very hypocritical in their values.

Personhood begins at birth when a baby's life becomes independent to that of the mother. The arbitrary restrictions on abortion are a religious anachronism and termination should be allowed at any point until birth.
