Two brutal and unusual animal slayings in the past week make me wonder if someone is working up the courage to go for his first human kill.


Arizona Family's Pet Chihuahua Found Cut in Half

Monday, July 07, 2008

Phoenix police are investigating a startling animal-cruelty case in which a 6-month-old Chihuahua was found cut in half.

The distraught Medina family had to remove photos of their dog "Taco" from the walls of their Phoenix home after the dog's owner, Humberto Medina, made the gruesome discovery.

Medina said the photos are too painful to look at because his last memory of Taco was of the pet torn in two pieces in their backyard.

Medina believes the crime was racially motivated.

"I don't understand why they did (this)," Humberto Medina told MyFOXPhoenix.com. "He was just a little dog. He cannot hurt anybody."

Detective Stacie Derge said the Phoenix Police Department does not have any suspects for the crime.

She did not have further details to release.

Anyone with information is asked to call 602-262-6151 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.


Valley family finds goat slaughtered in their yard

09:26 PM Mountain Standard Time on Wednesday, July 9, 2008

PHOENIX - A Valley family tonight is left with more questions than answers after they awoke this morning to find their pet goat cut up and gutted.

Goat brutally murdered


The carcass was left to rot in their backyard.

The goat was sliced open from the sternum to the hind legs all of the muscle removed. Her internal parts were thrown a few feet away.

The animal was left literally bone dry.

"The way everything has been cut clean you can tell it's defiantly been knife cut," Ryan McRoberts said.

For the McRoberts family their goats are just like any other household pet, cared for and loved like the other dogs or cats.

"I don’t know what kinda sick guy would come out here and do this," he said.

The one that was killed is Ryan's daughter's pet.

They have yet to tell the seven year-old her goat "Lizzy" is gone.

It doesn’t look like the work of wild animals, besides they live off of 39th Avenue and Greenway in Phoenix, not exactly coyote country.

They believe someone hoped the fence last night and in their backyard took the time to slaughter the poor goat.

The brutality of the killing has their minds wondering.

Was it the work of the fictional vampire like creature the chupacabra or maybe some strange and dangerous cult.

"My dad is a preacher and he was talking about satanic people taking stuff out of goats and all sorts of stuff," Ryan said.

They have called the Sheriff's department.

They hope they can catch who ever is responsible before they strike again.
