Pitful little pitty puppy that only wanted to play and be loved..

Oshkosh, WI - The 5 month old puppy discovered starved to death on an Oshkosh sidewalk last Thursday had a name. His name was Snoop.
The beautiful puppy never stood a chance with the owner that he was cursed with - that owner was identified to police through an informant.
That informant led police to the home of Bryan I. Hutcherson, 19.
Shockingly, Hutcherson is reported to have told police that the puppy was too stressful and "too expensive" to feed.
Instead of surrendering the puppy to an animal control facility, the man and his girlfriend reportedly watched him starve to death before their eyes.
Apparently little Snoop was kept in a wire cage measuring 2 ft x 3 ft - the cage was kept in the couple's living room. The informant told police that the puppy was covered in feces and shaking the last time that he was seen in February.
Puppies, with their quickly growing and developing bodies, require special puppy food during their first year of life - food with extra calories and nutrients to keep them healthy and ensure proper growth.
Instead, Snoop received nothing - from what his owner told police, he apparently received nothing for over a month.
Hutcherson told the police that he decided to lay the sick puppy on the sidewalk, just 2 blocks from his home, last Thursday - the puppy was so weak that he could not raise his head from the cement....
A necropsy showed that the emaciated puppy's organs had systematically shut down as a result of the starvation.
How could a person watch another life slowly fade away before their eyes? Surely Snoop suffered greatly - surely there was crying as the pain wracked his little body....
Hutcherson was held on a $1000 bond and will have a preliminary hearing on April 14. He could face fines of $10,000 and up to 3.5 years behind bars.
In the court of public opinion, his name will forever be associated with that of a person with no heart.
His unidentified girlfriend is also facing charges - her case has been sent to the Winnebago County District Attorney.
Rest in Peace Snoop.

  1. Going to prison and being charged a hefty fine is not enough punishment for this cruelty and pure evil. Bryan will receive meals and a cell where he can actually move around. So much more than poor little Snoop ever got to experience. No excuses!
