TO DAVID: any person who blames an entire race or group of people for something that a few individuals have done is a moron. It shows that you are a hateful, ignorant, and intolerant person, and that is the most dangerous type of person. I am a Newfoundlander, a Mom, and an animal lover. I am also educated, a business owner, and I am appalled that anyone can blame an entire province for any one persons actions.

There is something seriously wrong with a person who would do this. Someone out there will hopefully come forward with information to identify the person. As the article said, there are options out there if you cannot care for your animal.

Someone knows who did this,and if they have a conscience,they will fess up. These things happen all across Canada daily,and the laws are not strong enough to deter animal abuse. There are lots of idiots in Nfld as well as the rest of Canda that should not even be allowed to reproduce,let along own an animal. I know most Nflders and people all over Canada dearly love their family pets,its just the backward, hillbilly types that make other people look bad. Normal decent folk don,t do these assinine things, emphasis on the ass part.

It's happening all over the world Stephen.... not far from where I live here near Myrtle Beach someone duct taped 3 dogs.... their legs & muzzles..& threw them into a canal.... 1 dog was rescued but the other 2 were found dead.... what is the world coming to? Then there's Lennox :-( how sad

I am appalled that such things still go on. Penalties much be much more severe to deter the sickos out there from getting their kicks out of torturing those that cannot fend for themselves. Very sad commentary on our society.

This is just sick, and happens way too often. Too many animals suffer in our hands. Also maybe it's time for governments to pitch in on subsidising costs associated with neutering and so forth because way too many animals are suffering.. So sad. it's bad enough to just leave an animal but than to torture in such a manner. I feel sorry for that person cause they must be awfully miserable on the inside.. not that sorry though.

WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND DID THIS ? if the person/persons responsible for this are caught and i hope they are, they are punished, but wait a minute what am i saying. that old mickey mouse justice system and that hug-a-thug phoney liberal charter of rights and freedoms will set them free. all those die-heart liberals out there will cry foul and say its cruel to put an criminal away for killing a dog.

DAVID...really?! My heart goes out to the poor dog. To the soul-less person that did the deed, that was easier and or cheaper then either giving away the dog or paying a vet to put it to sleep...really??! Witness the decay of society...we are the next lost civilzation folks

It makes you fell beter to cast a wider net, and blame "Civilization".....but that's just convenient spin. This is a Newfoundlander. This is the place where drunk driving is a lifestyle, where poaching is second nature, where bullying is not just a sport of chidren, where tormenting one's neihbour can be a passionate hobby. If pitying New Yorkers or Torontonians instead of having to saee and admit what incredible, anti-social selfishness exists here, go ahead. That communal lie has obviously worked so well to this point.

Salt of the Earth...yeah, right. Pure bunk, myths and lies for the tourists.

so David apparently doesn't actually know any NFers, if so, he'd know we don't all act this way, just like we all kill seals and we all eat fish..I don't do either. Every single town in Canada has had a happening like this or something similar, not only is it disgusting, it shows the character of the PERSON to be someone that we shouldn't admit is a NFer and I know Mrs Harris personally, she'll find out who it was. All that being said, it's heartbreaking news, somebody knows something and it will be discovered, even if it is to get a slap on the hand and be called a badboy.

I know too many. You may take comfort in denying what pure, heartless evil and meantl wasteland surrounds you, but I don't.
