“Sometime between the late evening hours of July 1 and early morning of July 2, one of our adopted dogs, an American Pit Bull Terrier named Morpheus, was lured away from his owners’ property and killed. His body was then dumped near their property where he was found the next morning. A necropsy was performed to determine the cause of death. Morpheus died from a single gunshot wound and his body was moved post mortem.
Morpheus, the black Pit Bull pictured here with Kati and his sister, was just 9 months old. He was an ambassador for his breed. He was a gentle dog who loved everyone he met. In fact, his trust and love of people made him an easy target. We cannot stand by and let his death be just one more act of animal cruelty in our community. We are working with Kati and her husband Erik to offer a reward starting at $2,000 for information that leads to the conviction of the individual(s) responsible for the intentional, malicious killing of a part of their family. Morpheus was family.
Detective Redmon with IMPD is actively working leads, but she needs your help. We are asking that anyone with information, or who may have seen or heard something in the area of 9700 Cooper Rd. or 8200 Stones Ferry Dr. on the night of Wednesday July 1 and early morning of Thursday July 2, contact Detective Redmon at 317-327-1431 or Crime Stoppers of Indiana at 317-262-TIPS.
Our deepest sympathy goes out to Kati and Erik as well as our continued commitment to help bring Morpheus’s killer to justice.”
Notice the sign she is holding? We have seen Jeff Borchardt, the founder of Daxton’s Friends and poster child of a hot mental mess for Dogsbite.org – stalking and cyber attacking dog owners involved in the I am the Majority project. I would suggest and will foward complete lists of Jeff Borchardts anti pit/hate groups to the authorities. In fact- Borchardt is warning the public:
According to Borchardt- we will not like how these dogs will be taken out. He warns us that it will not be humane. However, this isn’t the only dusturbing case.
“Warning: This image is disturbing.
He may be alive today…if someone had just called. Yesterday, our HERO Team responded to a call about a dog suspected to be a victim of abuse who lay deceased in front of a dumpster. We have named the dog Justice. Eyewitnesses reported hearing and seeing a dog “cry out” Monday night in South Kansas City.
But no one called authorities. No one investigated.
The dumpster was emptied on Monday morning, and was at least halfway full when our team arrived on Wednesday. This means that countless people walked over the dog to put their trash in the dumpster. Though we do not know who or what caused his injuries, we do know he suffered severe trauma to his neck/head and he was left alone to suffer. Animal abuse should not and will not be tolerated.
A reward fund of $1,000 has been established for anyone with information about the case or who may be responsible. Tips can be directed to (913) 742-7327. Great Plains SPCA and friends of KC Animals are asking the community to stand up and speak out against animal abuse because #PetsDeserveBetter. Any citizen who encounters a situation of suspected animal abuse or neglect needs to immediately contact authorities so help can be provided while there is still time and responsible parties are held accountable. Please help us spread the word by sharing this across Facebook and Kansas City.”
I would go ahead and start checking out the members of this group-
Odds are that these individuals know exactly who is responsible.
