Man Accused Of Stabbing Dog To Death

ST. LUCIE COUNTY (CBS4) – A Ft. Pierce man has been charged with animal cruelty after he reportedly killed his dog by stabbing it more than two dozen times.

Joseph Barker, 35, allegedly paid a friend $20 to drive him and his three year old pit bull to a canal on January 8th. The St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office said once there Barker hit the dog several times on the head with a tire iron before throwing it into the canal. But when he saw that the dog was still alive and trying to climb up the embankment, Barker reportedly grabbed it and repeatedly stabbed it in the neck.

A family member who heard about what Barker allegedly did found the dog’s body at the canal and called police.

The sheriff’s office said Barker, who is currently jailed without bail, told investigators he did it because he was tired of the dog’s incessant barking.

  • bobbi

    how sick is this guy but get this before he killed a dog he has no bond but if he had killed a humane being he’ed get bond? whats the matter with this picture?????

    • tubaman

      that’s right bond.i love it

    • Sam

      Why is it ok to kill a chicken, or a cow, or a pig – but not a dog?

      • cora

        Sam, it is too bad your mother didn’t have an abortion, we already have too many idiots in the world.

      • JJ

        You can’t torture a chicken, cow or pig. DUH. Dogs are humanely killed every day. There is no excuse for what he did.

      • John

        Because dog meat is too strongy to be good eating…

      • John


      • Michael

        AMEN CORA!

      • madbradwilson

        because thankfully, in a CIVILIZED SOCIETY pets are viewed differently than chickens, cows and pigs. the real question is, why aren’t people who don’t pay taxes not okay to kill? since we are being ridiculous….

      • Donna

        Is this the way chickens, cow, and pigs are killed, moron?

      • James

        Sam, Man has been eating animals since there was Man! Nature made it that way! You really think modern Man is above nature? Are you really that stupid? really?

      • MAKE MY DAY

        We just happen to “EAT” those particular animals!!! But – you raise a good point!!!

      • Connie

        Because a dog is a pet, brought into the home under the expectation of being fed and loved. It isn’t a farm animal, raised for the purpose of food. Do you REALLY not understand this, or are you just an idiot?

      • Chiquelitz

        The only reason a dog barks all the time is because he’s lonely or bored. Do you believe that a man who would beat an animal w/ a tire iron ever gave this poor animal any affection or any care? This guy is a pathological murderer who should be incarcerated for the rest of his life.

      • CalDre

        @JJ “You can’t torture a chicken, cow or pig. DUH.” You are hopelessly clueless. You need to visit a factory farm, and also a kosher meatpacking plant, and you will see that these animals are treated far worse than this dog. Not to mention veal, where the animal is severely abused its entire life just to you get a bit more enjoyment when you eat it (after killing it of course).

      • corey

        Silly vegitarians… If God didn’t want us to eat animals, why’d he make them out of meat????

      • John

        Why do you care that I eat animals that have been eaten for thousands of year? Why prosecute people on this… the world would love it if you and all other vegans would shut up.

      • alio

        Sure we eat animals designated for food killed humanely. Killing a dog like this man did is inhumane and riles the pet loving population. The first thing I think of when I hear these sick stories is to hang this guy by the gonads until castrated by himself.
        His type needs a daily reminder the rest of his life to be kind to pets. See how much of a man he is after this type sentence. ha ha. He deserves no less.

      • J.R.

        Your an idiot…the meat that are feed to humans are killed for consumption….and hopefully killed humanely…

      • jj

        Caldre you are the one who is clueless. Please point me to the farm who can legally beat an animal, drown it then stab it to death? Factory farms are disgusting but it is regulated to prevent animal cruelty as much as possible. They can be shut down if they are caught. Do some people still do it? Of course because some people are gross look at all the comments excusing this pos’s actions.

      • Sweet Meat

        Why is it ok to kill broccoli or peaches, but not a dog? Vegans murder more innocent vegetation than McDonald’s makes burgers. They should be stopped! Why is it ok to kill cockroaches, but not dogs? If you want to be “one with nature” then stop eating.

      • CalDre

        @Connie. “Because a dog is a pet, … It isn’t a farm animal ”

        And that makes a moral difference, exactly how? Because you like one more than the other? Well obviously this guy didn’t. What makes your dietary preference so important, you pompous moronic irrational hypocrite? The purpose someone brought an animal home makes a moral difference as to how you treat them? Really?, Obviously you have a personal preference, but so does every hypocrite and killer in the world. I really despise hypocrite meat-eaters – either you respect mammals, or you don’t, get off you high-horse, idiot.

      • Mark

        Because dogs aren’t bred as food. Cows and chickens are. Meaning if we didn’t want them as food, those animals never would have been here in the first place. Also they don’t kill cows and chickens by beating them over the head and throwing them in a ravine and then repeatedly stabbing them in the neck. PLUS Dogs are kick ass! Pigs are cool too, but they taste awesome!

    • Greg

      Unable to experience empathy. Another sociopathic serial killer in the making?

      • CalDre

        If you want to see true animal torturers unable to experience empathy, visit and see where your pork chop or bacon comes from .

      • theTruth

        Vegan wackos like CalDre need to experience a pack of wild hogs before they open their pathetic pie-holes. Pigs left to themselves don’t dance and play video games all day…

        City slicker know-nothing… see I can call people names too…

    • brito6162

      the reason he didn’t get bond was not that he killed a “dog” but the judge saw that he could kill a human just as easy with his defective mental processing system. That is how many battered women get killed when the assailant is out on bail or jst simply realeased after the Macho judge just puts out a restraining order.

    • Jesse Locke

      You’re exactly right my friend. However, I do feel pity for the poor dog. Give humans the same kind of justice that pets now get!

    • J-bird

      i’m pretty sure he wouldn’t get bail if he paid a friend to drive him to a canal and kill a person. The real difference is that the “friend” would also be jailed as an accomplice? Why is that not the case here? His friend is an accomplice to animal cruelty.

      • Pullio

        CalDre: Cuz pigs and cows taste SO Good!!!!

      • CalDre

        Why aren’t all you cow- and pig-killing meat eaters in prison without bail? What makes a pit-bull so special? Pigs are actually much smarter and nicer ….

      • Taste Like Chicken

        Dog actually taste quite nice, thank you very much.

        In China the Saint Bernard is one of our best, very sweet and tasty indeed.

        Don’t knock Dog until you try it people.
        I would invite you all to some of the nicer restaurants in China, Korea and many other finer Asian nations who enjoy Dog on the menu. Cheers.

      • johnny b

        Hey CalDre: why aren’t all you baby killers in prison?
        Bottom line; it was his dog. He can kill it if he wants.

      • johnny b

        Oh wait! It was a Pit-bull. They are not even dogs! They should ALL be killed!

      • Sarah Hall

        CalDre, go back to your PETA office, you aren’t wanted here

      • Sarah Hall

        Johnny B, ignorance is bliss, isn’t it? I own 3 dogs that most would call “pit bull” type dogs, and they are, hands down, the best dogs. I bet you didn’t know that the actual American Pit Bull Terrier was bred specifically to NOT be human aggressive, did you? Take my advice and choke down some facts on something you choose to speak so strongly against.
        Oh, and BOTTOM LINE, its illegal to STAB YOUR DOG TO DEATH!


        CalDre really? do you own one? I can guarantee my pitbull is smarter and nicer than you////dont judge my pit and I wont judge your kids….


        Johnny B and Taste Like Chicken are the epitome of ignorant, you need to be sterilized and poster children for birth control…..

    • brickabracka

      animals have their own personalities, cats, dogs, chickens, goats, cows, pigs, doesn’t matter, they all feel the pain of death. and the so called painless lethal injections…..anyone ever see the face of an animal dying from lethal injection?
      sadly there is a moment of pure agony when the animal passes, and the animal is terrified as would you be.

      The bottom line is humans are the most inhumane creature on earth. Theres some strange and horrible things in the animal kingdom, but nothing compares to the sheer heartlessness of some people.

      • tnmccoy

        I suppose you’ve never seen a lion kill? Animals eat animals and they don’t do it ‘humanely.’ Man was given dominion over the Earth and all the flora and fauna. He kills animals for food and protection. While some idiots are just that when it comes to animals, most are not. Stop trying to equate animals with humans. You miss the point of life. Life can be and is brutal at times. Consider abortion. That my friend IS the most inhumane decision man can make. It’s murder pure and simple. And those poor babies feel pain—lots of it. Man is unique and special in this World of ours. We should start acting that way.

      • Lab Rat

        I have held my beloved pets – both cats and dogs – while they were euthanized.

        There was not any terror or agony, just a peaceful passing in my arms.

      • Kelly

        Yeah, because lions, tigers and bears are totally vegetarian and would never dream of eating animals.

      • Richtellindatroof

        Such bullhockey. Humans have treated many an animal to the lap of luxury, never have I heard of cats or dogs being so spoiled in nature. Let’s face it, you have an agenda to demonize man for the sake of environmental politics and that is a far greater evil when you attack your brethren.

    • jm

      you’re exactly right.
      this guy is messed up.
      talk about self absorbed and arrogant. who was he to decide this dog should die a brutal death just because the creature was barking?
      and secondly, you’re exactly right again- the fact that this guy is in jail with no bond for killing a dog, but he’d be offered bond if he killed a person- this is messed up.
      silence the people who love creatures more than people

    • scumbuster

      It’s a pit bull, big deal. If it killed a kid you all would want the owner jailed. Well, he destroyed the dog B4 a tragedy occured.

      • Harry Armstrong

        Completely agree. The story doesn’t give enough details but if my pit attacks my kids, guess what, the pit is history with extreme prejudice.

      • Connie

        Ah yes. The little man syndrome is on display here. This is a civilized society. WE don’t beat our dogs to death with tire irons or stab them in the neck until dead. The dog didn’t bite a kid, according to the owner, yes? So, your point was? Little man syndrome — “I’ll kill anybody that looks sideways at me, my woman or my kid.” Yep, sure.

      • Anthony

        How did a story of a demon possessed psycho turn into a human rights discussion? They say one in every six Americans has a mental disease. That’s clearly evident here on this forum!

    • Ironmaan

      The guy is a sick man and should be punished.

    • brendre

      They should throw him down an embankment.

    • Ike

      This guy deserves a second chance…after all the president just praised the owner of the Eagles for giving Michael Vick a second chance. Vick electrocuted strangled and drown several dogs with his bare hands and look how he has turned his life around. We should all be more presidential!
      Seriously I hope there is a special place in hell for anyone that tortures animals
      and those who excuse it

    • Jerry

      I sure he didn’t use the words ” incessant barking.” He probably wouldn’t know the meaning of “incessant”

    • bobby-baby

      Bravo and god bless him!! I’d pay his bail myself if I could.

      It’s time somebody did something with all of these damn barking dogs.

      I don’t mean when the dog barks for a reason. I mean when they just incessantly bark and the owner either isn’t around (and doesn’t care when you tell them) or is around aqnd doesn’t care.

      I used to live in Long Beach and next door was a fat potato shaped slob of a woman from some banana republic who’s dog barked NON-STOP at NOTHING for hours on end. I have the video to prove it.

      Ruined peoples sleep and made life miserable… but, oh you have to have at least three complaints to do something. So if it’s mainly barking outside of your window you have no recourse; right? Right. “If you don’t like it, move” this fat blob said when we asked her to control the dog.

      Anybody know where I could get a tire iron?

    • Pandoraah

      Humans can help themselves. Animals cannot. This sick freak must have been at fault for the dog barking also. He needs to be hung by his genitals.

  • Corinne

    Anyone who kills a defenseless animal or abuses any animal. should get life imprisonment or the death sentence. Evil people like that are a threat to society and need to be kept off the streets. Our laws are far to lenient in the abuse of animales. It is heart wrenching to see the abuse of animals, and we need to have stronger laws, and enforce them, or they will repeat this monstrous cruelity on another animal.

    • Deb

      They don’t put to death people who kill, multilate or molest innocent victims. They don’t even put them in prison for life and, many times, they only serve a few months or years just to repeat their crime.

      I’m not saying the guy doesn’t deserve a long prison sentence. I’m just saying people need to be held accountable and we need laws that fit the crime. Kill or rape someone, or kill your dog because you’re too lazy to take them to dog training…go to prison for life, or perhaps a death sentence that will be carried out in a matter of months, not years.

    • blaine

      let me guess: you’re the type of chick who thinks partial birth abortions are great fun? You’re the type of chick who has no problem viewing a child as an “inconvenience’ and as a mere “bundle of cells,” but a dog is something to be placed on a pedestal. What this guy did was de trop, but it’s a DUMB ANIMAL, not a human being. Creatures like you care more about dumb animals than about other human beings (particularly children)

      • MrMac

        its just a dumb animal. why are all you teabaggers trying to make this about a woman’s right to decide if she wants to give birth? this story has nothing to do with criminalizing mothers who have an abortion.

    • Someone

      Hey all you meat eaters – what’s the difference between killing a dog, and killing pigs, chickens, cows, etc? They were all defenseless animals until you got hungry.

      You said ‘any animal’. Think about it..

      • Nick

        We eat meat to survive. Just like every other omnivore or carnivore on this planet does. This main tried to club, drown and then stab a dog to death because he was annoyed! Do you really not see a difference???

      • madbradwilson

        and i would ask you to think about your statement…. seriously think about it. if you can….

      • Glenn

        Hey Someone……When I read your comment the only thing that comes to mind is, How did the human race survive this long with Idiots like you in the world, Man has been eating the animals that GOD has provided for us ….since like, the begining of time.

    • Pablo

      U R insane. It’s property. So flushing your goldfish down the toilet= death penalty. Try worrying about human beings instead of dumb (& sometimes dangerous) animals.

      • tubaman

        thats right idiot.animals need someone to protect them

      • St Frank

        if we disregarded all “dumb (and sometimes dangerous) life”, what would happen to California and New York? Come on, domesticated animals deserve our protection.

      • Davey

        Animal worshippers are crazy. This dog is this guys property and he can do with it what he pleases

      • woodNfish

        Terrible waste of meat. He should have eaten it.

      • Samantha

        I am not a animal worshipper I cook the deer my husband kills and farm pigs, bunny’s and goat. I hope to be able to raise and a turkey this year for thanksgiving. This said all the above animals on my farm live a good life while alive and are killed quickly and humanly. This guy is a evil person capable of evil deeds and deserves to be jailed. We sale our baby pigs and chicks we do not want as that is the correct thing t do-as him giving the dog away or this is a thought him actually teach his dog-would have been the correct thing.

      • Jane Anderson

        If we stop worrying what people do to animals, then there will be not be any more people left to worry about.


        Haven’t you EVER studied psychology????? The man who did this to a dog will someday do the same thing *or worse* to a child or another defenseless being. It is about CONTROL…. IT IS A KNOWN FACT. ASK ANY PSYCHOLOGIST!!

      • Glenn

        You are right on here Pablo. We worry more about animals rights then Human beings…….Do any of you realize how ridiculious you sound. There are better ways to deal with an animal then the wat this guy did. But, we should always understand that a animal isn’t a human and laws should stop over glorifying this area before we become totally out of touch with reality!!!!

    • MB

      In stead of holding them accountable, we more often than not re-elect them to public office.

    • Dog Lubber

      I agree whole heartedly.

    • Willy Bamboo

      I eat beef and i never give the critters a chance to defend themselves. “Pow” right between the eyes. They never knew what hit ’em. I admit, taking them apart in little pieces and grinding the dear things up into hamburger is a bit gross. About your death sentence for me Judge Corinne – you might want to hurry. I’m 65 and Big Guy upstairs is gunning for me also. I’ll bet he gets me first!

    • Bobby Sue

      Would you agree that we should jail every “humane society” employee that sends helpless dogs, cats, and other helpless critters to the gas chamber?

      • samihami

        No, but how about the irresponsible owners who create the problem by not having their pets spayed/neutered? Seems like they should be held responsible for perpetuating a problem that should not exist to begin with.

      • JJ

        Viciously beating a dog, trying to drown it then stabbing it to death does not = getting a shot and going to sleep. Are people this stupid?

      • Rosanne Boyer

        All he had to do was take the animal to any vet and they would put the dog down for a small fee. His “crime” was taking his rage out on the animal. Obviously not a man at the top of the food chain.

      • dave


      • Paula

        Would you rather a dog or cat live in a small cage indefinitely, get killed by another animal or starve to death? That’s what happens to animals every day too. What is more humane?

      • ranchoazul

        Rosanne their are plenty of vets that will not put down a dog that was worse than this one. I had a dog that bit someone & killed another dog. The vet would not put him down & neither would the shelter. Not until he bit someone else and the court got involved.

    • Dave

      I agree Corinne…string ’em up on the town square right along with child molesters, murderers, rapists, etc. There no freekin’ better!!!!

      • SliderX

        Yeah that dogs life is far far move valuable that a human life, string him up.

    • bobbybaby

      But when that animal makes life miserable for all those around and the owner (unlike this guy) refuses to do anything, then what?

      We need stronger laws that protect PEOPLE from animals that bark incessantly.

      I’m not in favor of killing dogs wantonly but I can kind of understand this guy. Of course I don’t know why he didn’t just dump the thing at a shelter somewhere.

    • shaggy


    • bobia

      I hope you mean to include Michael Vick. If so, I agree.

    • dogtrainer

      then how do you feel about abortion when a human being is killed? a baby? but you call for justice for an animal that does not even know what it is? animals eat, run and breed.
      justify that.

      • Rodney Merrill

        Your ignorance is overwhelming. You are 50 years out of date. Researchers are coming to the conclusion that we have judged wrongly to boost our own egos. Animals are conscious sentient beings who suffer. Amd ,many are fully aware of themselves and others.

        I find it scary that you are a dog trainer.

    • George

      You’re really sick in the head if you would kill a person for killing a dog.

      • Donna

        It depends on whose dog it was….

    • Rodney Merrill

      I agree but if you bothered to investigate the way meat animals are treated, you would d become a vegetarian. Factory style “farms” treat their animals almost as badly.

    • bambam0099

      Hey Corinne, should shut down PETA because they KILLED over 90% of the animals they took in? What about the animal shelters that KILL animals when they can’t find people to adopt them? What about pet owners that MUTILATE their pets by “spade and neutering”? How dare you keep a pet locked up in your house under your control simply for your selfish pleasure…SET THEM FREE to live their own lives.
      You animal rights activists are all whacked in the head.

  • langley

    true, what he did was evil, but why stop there? Why do people protest animal cruelty–become outraged even–but defend people who murder unborn human beings?

    • RAM

      Because UNBORN humans are called fetuses! A fetus can’t sustain its own life! It’s dependent on a person. That person has the FREEDOM to choose whether or not they want to bring another life into this world of ignorant control freaks. I assume you’re a man, like me, and frankly abortion is none of our business unless we’re asked for our opinion. Please keep yours to yourself and keep the discussion germane to the topic. Bible thumpers are really starting to annoy me.

      • Maggie Fanelli

        It’s obvious you’re ashamed to be an abortion-supporter, otherwise why would you attack those who make a very valid comparison? You’re tired of the “Bible-thumpers” reminding you what a cold, damaged, half-person you really are. BTW, any cool new tats lately?

      • langley

        People who irrationally deny the humanity of fetuses (btw, that would be Latin for “offspring”) have annoyed me for a long time. Emphasizing the word “unborn” does nothing for your argument, as that is the very point. It’s a bit like saying, “Humans in a retirement community are called elderly!” By such a comment I suppose you somehow think that makes them less human? That would be called ‘begging the question’. In point of fact, the fetal stage includes viability, though that’s an old 1973 non-sequitur anyway. You’re also begging the question asserting that people have the right to kill dependent humans just because they’re dependent (so can parent kill their toddlers when they get tired of changing diapers all the time?). Calling ME names is also irrelevant drivel; we call this “ad hominem”, a logically fallacy of attacking someone because we don’t have something meaningful to say. You’re also begging the queston as to whether men should have some say in the matter. Would you also argue that people who didn’t own slaves before the Civil War should have no say in the issue of slavery? Should I ignore the plight of my neighbor if she gets robbed because it’s none of my business? I’d say this is particularly germane when we have people in this forum who actually want to throw the guy in prison for life (don’t make me laugh!) or give the guy the death penalty. I’d say those people need to get their ethics straight…. What hypocrisy! You want to defend a dog, but not an unborn human being. I love it.

      • Cato

        In keeping with the logic, I believe from now on we should refer to nursing home residents as ‘the undead’. It is much easier to kill the enemy once you have dehumanized them. Dogs, babies, enemy soldiers, first we must alter our vocabulary, then proceed with the killings. As Woody Allen once said “You can go years without sex, but you can’t go a day without rationalization.”

      • Maggie Fanelli


      • Farmer Bob

        Sorry to point this out, but there is no need to “dehumanize” dogs, except in the minds of their owners and others of the many weak-minded sects that abound in this country today. Dogs are, in fact, dogs, and not humans.

      • bob

        UNBORN humans are called health food in china why don’t you go have some or if you don’t have the stomach for it give some to your dog……Ram

      • Rufus Levin

        Idiots annoy me…and you are CLEARLY the head of that class.

    • Lester Spratt

      I hate to tell you this, RAM, but newborn infants can’t sustain themselves, either, and are “dependent” on other humans.

      • Jekyll Isle

        Should we kill all those that can no longer sustain themselves too or become dependent on others?

        I hope you answer yes, since you will get there sooner than you think

      • Osamas Pajamas

        I support the right to abort — but a newborn can be supported BY SOMEONE ELSE through adoption — so there’s CLEARLY no right or reason to killing a newborn.



  • Ken Inman

    REL TRUST, You could tell this is a white guy just from the name Joseph Barker? Perhaps if you would like to see a racist you should look in the mirror.

    • fairpoint

      Rednecks have to be white?

      • fairpoint

        It’s more of a figure of speech than an actual description, isn’t it? I live in east Texas and I know several blacks who identify themselves as rednecks.

      • HankS

        How a non-white can get a “red neck”?

  • Noxasa

    There are ways to do things in civil society. He could have just taken it to the pound and dropped it off saying it was a stray. Let them put it down. I hate dogs that bark all the time as I used to live next to one. That dog barked about once every 20 seconds from 8 in the morning to 9 at night. Eventually I had to get animal control involved because the owner wouldn’t do anything about it. The dog was eventually taken away, yay!!!

    • kat

      The poor thing just needed some love and attention. It’s not the fault of the dog if its owner pays no attention to him. Some people just shouldn’t have animals.

    • Rodney Merrill

      So, was the problem the dog or the human? I say the human.

  • Hank Warren

    So the gov’t kills 10,000 birds and no problem but this guy kills a dog and faces long time jail. Absurd laws regarding animals, yet another violation of our rights. Add it to the list of gov’t violations of our right:
    They violate the 1st Amendment by placing protesters in cages, banning books like “America Deceived II” and censoring the internet.
    They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns.
    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by molesting airline passengers.
    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars for foreign countries.
    Impeach Obama and sweep out the Congress, except Ron Paul.

    • John

      Dogs are man’s best friend. Birds are dinner at KFC. That’s why I don’t care about birds. But I do care about preventing cruelty to animals. Dude get should get life at Alcatraz.

      • kat

        Birds are necessary for eating bugs, pollination, and they’re pretty to look at.

    • Jekyll Isle

      America Deceived is a deplorable book that should be burnt & then banned for the sheer stupidity of it

        Absolutely agree. 9/11 Trig Troofers are insane crazies. It’s people like them that insult people who just want to see Obama’s birth certificate and all his other sealed records.

      • Rodney Merrill

        Anyone who wants to ban any book cannot talk about sheer stupidity.

  • R N

    The guy should dissapear off the end of the pier!!

  • mh

    and yet, if this story were about the pitbull breaking loose and maiming a child, each of these comments would be calling for the death of the animal.

    Save the outrage for real travesties.

    • joh adams

      killing a defenseless animla w a tire iron isnt a travesty? are you a moron? or jsut stupid

    • Dog Lubber

      No I wouldn’t. I would blame the irresponsible owner for not properly securing the animal. I have owned several pits and never once did my dogs so any aggression toward a child or adult. They have a bad wrap because of the owners who train them to be mean. You can take a toy poodle and turn it into a monster.

    • Russ

      If people were calling for the death of the animal, it would be to have it euthanized humanely, not savagely beaten to death. Try to understand the difference.

    • J-bird

      What do transvestites have to do with this story????????

  • John

    I don’t think he intended for the dog to suffer, but was just inept at putting an animal to sleep. He should have used an ax or machete. Cleaner and quicker.

    • leslie

      John I have a feeling you really are just that sick.

    • Rodney Merrill

      OK. you are just a troll. Don’t anyone bite on this. He is baiting you. And if he really is that stupid there is no point in talking to him.

  • jamesleetn

    If he had paid a vet to euthanize the dog you would have heard nothing.

    • bobby Sue

      Vets who “euthanize” animals should go to jail. Don’t you think?

      • Jekyll Isle

        How about abortionists?

        Should they go to jail too or is a child’s life less important than a dog’s?

  • DickWiggler

    he should get a MEDAL
    i HATE pit bull dogs !!

  • MrMac

    Good riddance. All dogs with jaws big enough to do serious damage should be eradicated from the planet. I was bitten as a child and still have the scars to prove it. I fear for innocent children who do not know to fear dogs. Get a cat and save yourself the headache from the barking and save yourself and unsuspecting kids from being disfigured … do not get a large dog…they are dumb animals and do not deserve you love and affection.

    • fairpoint

      I got scared by an 18 wheeler once.

      • St Frank

        haha eradicate all 18-wheelers – how dumb to make an over-arching call on 1 experience.

    • Doglvr

      Boohoo, a doggie bit you and now you want to kill them all. Not all large dogs bite. I have a pit bull and it does love me dearly. Maybe if you weren’t so ignorant about dogs you wouldn’t be such a scared little oathetic wussy.

    • MrMac

      am i? or am i someone who was scared for life by a dog?

      • lisa

        How does one get scared for life by a dog? Maybe by the dog that did it, but why all dogs.

    • john adams

      comments like these are why there is racism in the world, one bad experience so all large dogs should be killed, what a moron you arej

    • Marcus

      MrMac, you’re right on the money. It’s always pit bills, rottweiliers, and dobermans (big, mean dogs) that attack, mutilate, and kill humans.

    • Rodney Merrill

      Anyone making such a generality based on one experience with one dog has “scars” alright but the one’s on your body are the least of it. The problem is not dogs. The problem is your twisted view resulting from your trauma.

      I hope we never change the world to suit everyone’s fears and traumas. It would be totally devoid of life.

    • Nick

      I’m also afraid of spiders, flying, haunted houses, etc. Are we do eradicate everything from the planet that people are afraid of or have once cause injury? I fell off my bike many time. Should we get rid of all bikes and the ground? A hamster bit my finger, KILL THEM ALL!

      You aren’t that bright are you?

    • Donna

      God made this animal for some purpose, not to be inhumanely tortured and executed….So you, yourself, were hurt as a child, but you still feel no compassion for an innocent animal that, as far as we know, never hurt anyone….You are sick, and you don’t deserve love or affection, and I doubt you have it….

  • Dog Pro

    There are so many ways to humanely stop a dog from barking excessively. No need to bash the dogs skull with a steel bar…regardless of breed. I hope the Guy gets “euthanized” in jail.

    • Loppyshingers

      Would you say the same if he had killed a baby? How about an unborn baby?

      • john adams

        thia aint about abortion stupid

      • Marcus

        You’re right Loppy. These hypocrites that cry crocodile tears over poor vicious dogs could care less about 50 million babies being murdered since 1973.

      • Rodney Merrill

        Give it a rest. We;re talking about animal cruelty. Go beat your drum elsewhere.

      • Janet

        Why don’t you shut up?

  • snap_out_of_it

    I can understand being upset with the barking…I’ll leave it at that. I do tire of reading about problem pitbulls and/or their problem owners. I wonder if he’d be charged if he’d just cut the dog’s spine with scissors at birth like late-term abortion “doctors” do. But clearly this guy should have been aborted himself then we wouldn’t have him or the dog causing trouble.

  • Les

    Yes, the guy’s a nutcase. He could’ve just shot the dog in the brain, no pain, no bark.

  • Larry Campbell

    This man is obviously mentally ill. Luckily we have found out that he is mentally unstable and a danger to others with the victim being a dog and not a human.

    • Loppyshingers

      Obviously? We don’t know the whole story.

  • bob tarasiak

    sad, howver even sadder is the fact Americans have murdered almost 50,000,000 babies sine 1973! yet dogs get more publicity than innocent babies!!!!!!!!!! Hey, Koreans eat dogs, don’t get me wrong i love my dog, but humans are more important.

    • JBZ

      can you imagine if those 50 million unwanted children wold have been born? The crime rate spike, the welfare burden the food stamp burden the tax burden….

      • Marcus

        You don’t know that. Why should they be murdered in the most vicious, evil, subhuman way because some selfish slobs don’t want them? Please don’t waste time mentioning rape or incest because they constitute way less than 1% of all abortions. 99% plus are for convenience (read: selfishness).

  • Benjamin Napier

    If it was his dog, he has committed no crime. Chattel may be dealt with as the owner sees fit. Beating and killing a dog, while repugnant has the same result as taking said dog to the vet and having it euthanized. There is no way to nicely kill anything. I have had to shoot several dogs in my life. Most of them mine. If I had no firearm, I would have broken their skull or cut their throat. If it were a fight, what ever that would work.

    • Ron Reale

      I suppose the thought of just sitting behind your vehicle while it is running, and letting the dog get gassed peacefully never occurred to you?
      This cretins actions are exactly how serial killers start out, and turn into Michael “Dogkiller” Vick, (may his back be broken in a tackle, and he live in excruciating pain for the rest of his hopefully short life).
      Ron Reale

    • john adams

      stupid, it cruelty to animals and its not the same thing

  • Benjamin Napier

    And, A pitbull is no different than any dog. The breed is not good or bad, it is the owner that causes the problem.

    • hester

      To hit and stab any living thing is a wicked messed up thing to do, it shows a blatant disregard or disconnect from humanity. If the dog was incessantlybarking, that is because it was not being cared for or trained properly. Dropping the dog off at a shelter should have been the obvious solution. Most counties have animal controll do they not? It suffices to say that he will probably not get the kind of time he deserves. Look at Michael Vic……

    • MrMac

      dogs are dumb animals. it’s not the owners fault. most pitbulls respect their owners. the problem comes when the dumb animal thinks a small child is something to eat.

  • Freedomyo

    Cruel and stupid, but IT’S A DOG! The only thing the guy is guilty of is littering. Animals have no rights, people.

    • Janet

      You must be a terrible person….I bet your mother wishes she had aborted you….

  • Duh Man

    i HATE pit bulls
    a barking, eating machine..
    good riddance

  • steve

    Hasn,t this inbred buffoon ever heard of a 22 pistol. What an idiot.

  • bumblefoot2004

    Man named “Barker” can’t stand his dog, who is also a “barker.”

  • Chicago Nick

    So the punishment in a perfect world would be a cage match between the nut and the pitbull’s relatives… Is this lowlife related to Michael Vick? (Somewhere down the line probably yes ….)

  • ronald

    No excuse for this kind of sick behavior. this guy is mentally unstable & should be locked up. someone that would be so cruel to a beloved pet dog is also capable of stabbing a person to death. they usually start with cruelty to animals & worse. people like this have no empathy for other living things & it’s very sad.
