MIAMI — A 7-year-old Pomeranian’s fragile body was found beaten to death with a disturbing and cruel handwritten note taped to its body reading, “WE BEAT IT 2 Death lol! HAHAHA!”
The Pomeranian, named Fox, went missing on Aug. 7 when it was outside on the grassy area of the family’s Pembroke Pines Townhouse, according to CNN. A day later, a neighbor, said to be the dog owner’s boyfriend, found Fox on his back stoop. When he approached the tiny dog’s body, he saw the disturbing note tapped onto its broken body.
The owner took Fox to the veterinarian to find out how he died. Fox suffered from 10 broken ribs, broken jaw, ruptured stomach and broken spine. The vet said Fox looked like he was kicked multiple times.
The Pembroke Pines Police Department said in a Facebook post that the murder of Fox seems like an isolated incident and cautioned owners about leaving their pets unintended. They are currently still looking for the attacker.
