Geezer Butler, a member of heavy metal band Black Sabbath has added some of his own money to a fund set up with the aim of catching a dog killer.  The fund which is up over $22,000 has been set up for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the offender.

President of Social Compassion in Legislation Judy Mancuso announced the donation today at a news conference.  According to her, the report of the incident came into police at 1:30 pm on the 14th of May.  It was reported to have happened in the 1600 block of East First Street in Los Angeles, California.

Witnesses told police responding to the call that a small dog jumped out of the window of a Dodge Caravan.  The driver of the vehicle then got out and chased the dog, finally catching up.  Once this monster got his hands on the dog, he began to punch furiously, finally picking the dog up and throwing the dog against the ground with some extreme force.  He then got back into the van and drove away.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male that stands about 6 feet, 2 inches, is balding with gray hair and is estimated at about 50-60 years old.  Witnesses managed to get a picture of the van in question, which is a Dodge Caravan that estimated to be between the years 1996 to 2000 and the bumper doesn’t match the rest of the vehicle.

    • Exactly my point whenever I’ve seen pictures and/or videos of animals being abused! It’s one thing to document a crime, abuse, etc. BUT..get a license plate#, or do something, get the animal away from them, follow to their location, etc.
      With every living being having a cell phone, they come in handy for getting good identifying info on sickos who harm cats and dogs!

    • It’s close to impossible to find these cretons..They drive away and forget it unless the license plate# is snapped as a pic..This van looks like it’s most likely a family too, since families with kids usually buy vans like this. If this picture has the license plate, then, they can be found easily.. Hope that’s the case, since it’s not confirmed here…poor dog!
