The intruder kept hitting the dog with a baseball bat and even hit her in the head with a hammer before dragging her to a fire pit and lighting her up.
The family of Sissy, the loving 6-year-old black Lab mix who suffered a tragic death, demand justice and ask for a maximum sentence for her killer.
The assault on Sissy was done by 29-year-old Cody Shay Townsend who broke into the dog’s family residence. The poor animal got severely beaten trying to protect the place and her puppies.
Sissy was first hit on the head with a baseball bat and then with a hammer. And as if that wasn’t enough harm she suffered, she was later dragged to the neighbor’s fire pit and thrown inside. Onlookers who witnessed the gruesome act tried saving Sissy and rushed her to hospital. Her injuries, however, were so severe that she was in constant pain. Aware that she suffers, the family and the doctors decided to put her down.
The culprit has been charged with animal cruelty, trespassing, and burglary. Allegedly, at the time of the incident, the cruel man was under substance influence.
Currently, he’s in custody with a $25,000 bond. Sissy’s mom and dad ask for the harshest punishment because what he did was beyond cruel and terrifying. A mommy dog was killed and the family lost their furry child and their most loyal friend.
We hope this man gets what he deserves, and that’s jail time.
