So terribly, terribly sad. The dog was so badly burned, I'm actually not surprised she could not survive. Burns that deep and extensive exact an awful toll on the body, and I imagine she was in terrible pain.
From what I'm reading, the laws where this happened are not nearly severe enough, so if anything, I hope this will galvanize a movement to get the punishments for such terrible deeds increased. The family is devastated, the children of this family are traumatized - an article said one child can't stop crying and the other is afraid to be out of his parents' sight. How can small children possibly deal with learning that such great and brutal evil exists in the world?
No matter how poorly a person is raised, (and the suspects appear to be legally adults) unless they are severely mentally ill, they know something like this is wrong. The fact that several people were involved suggests that no only did they know it was wrong, they took pleasure in its evil. People like that need their freaking asses kicked, and locked away from the light of day.
Sociopathic killers in training, man ...
You ask of my companions. Hills, sir, and the sundown, and a dog as large as myself that my father bought me. They are better than human beings, because they know but do not tell. ~ Emily Dickinson
To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring - it was peace. ~ Milan Kundera
