I hope that this criminal is caught and publicly treated the same way. Problem is that this torturous act is too good of treatment for what the pervert deserves.

This is horrible. I hope they find the criminal(s) who did this. I can only imagine the pain this poor dog suffered and is suffering. And I agree with Brad. The punishment this criminal should get is not bad enough.
