  • F cking Scumbag !

  • How aweful!!! This idiot needs to be dropped off by helicopter in the middle of a desert, or a jungle with no food/water. See how he likes it

  • [edit] And, yes, he is a scumbag many times over. So HAPPY that one of the fishing boat crew is going to give this beautiful Female puppy a good home.

  • ALL forms of animal cruelty should be a felony, period! If this guy ever gets caught, he will get a fine that will probably be lower than the cost to adopt and little to no jail time. It’s a crime in itself to have such low standards for the protection of animals~ Bless the kindness of the rescuers.

  • I could say a lot of things about the POS that did this, but I’ll save Kym the time of deleting them.
    The question is, what were they fishing for?

  • Fuckin prick!!!!I’m not bashful when it comes to animals I love them any shape.or form!!! [edit] To the rescuers,your my kind of HEROES and for giving her a.real home,and LOVE AND SHOWING THAT THIS IS HOW A HUMAN BEING ACTS🐕

  • Wow, what a POS!! How on earth could someone do such a cruel thing like that! I hope someone will be able to recognize this poor girl and be able to tell LE who her owner is so they can charge him with every possible charge that they can! This makes me SO ANGRY!! There were so many other options. He could have surrendered him to animal control. This person needs to be caught and banned from EVER owning another dog and if he has any others, they need to be removed from him immediately! God, I hope they catch him!!!

  • Man, I so wanted not to read this article. But like a car wreck I just had to look. It’s hard to type with blurred eyes.

    So many better options, just abandon in a park, for example. Damn, the ass must hate himself and life to hurt a puppy so. I’m screaming inside.

    • My thoughts exactly. Thanks for commenting & showing that overriding the screams inside are love & passion. Bless this poor traumatized puppy & may his life from now on be a great one!
      Thank you, fishing crew who 1st took action rescuing the pup & then reporting & getting the word out. That jackass hasn’t a moral compass whatsoever.

  • This act of Cruelty is the most horrendous thing I have ever read in my life I so hope and pray that he is caught and punished at the full extent of the law I don’t want to say what I would do to this piece of crap if I seen him throw that sweet dog off the bridge

  • Amimissingsomething

    His Karma will get him. Mister puppy thrower get help. You are one sick SOB

  • Usually a sign of deeper issues hopefully he is caught and kept an eye on before he does something even worse, sick pos

  • DumpTrumptheChump

    Thanks to the rescuers! The guy that dropped the dog is a subhuman scumbag[edit]!

  • There’s a part of me that just can’t believe it. I think, maybe the dog was just terrible and the person just couldn’t stand the dog. But it was a puppy, a cute puppy too. How bad could it have been?

    I wonder if it was a misunderstanding? Could the dog have leaped from the arms of an idiot? Some people ARE stupid.

  • Thank you all for calling this scumbag what s(h)e really is.

  • All forms of animal abuse should be a felony. Imagine what terror this puppy felt. Hope karma comes around quickly to this garbage who calls himself a human being.

  • Do you know what’s really sad, Most animals all they want is for a human to say good dog give them a pat on the head. If the puppy was to much them give it away. NOT DUMP over the side. My puppy has been a wild crazy nut since the day I adopted him, trust me those days when he out of control and jumps around like a flea in a hot pan have been trying put his punish has been in his crate for a bit. NOT dropped over the side. Someone saw this jerk he will get caught! Why is the guy having to pay to adopt her he saved her right his dog!!!!!!!!!!,
