A reminder that free to good home ads can be a death sentenc

CROSSPOSTED

Subject: Found his victims by answering "Free to Good Home" ads
Barry Herbeck In Waupun, Wisconsin, Barry Herbeck, " received" a 12-
year prison term for animal abuse in May of 1998.
In February of 1997, police found the bodies of five cats and one
dog in Herbeck's home. Poor little Nellie was one of the cats who
was found. Nellie's body was found with her rectum stretched to 1.5
inches in size (caused by Herbeck sodomizing her), both of her back
legs were broken, her neck was broken and she had severe abdominal
injuries. The other four cats, Morris, Butterball, Monkey and Harley
were dead, with their eyes bulging from strangulation, and they had
broken bones, jaws and necks.
Herbeck admitted to sodomizing, torturing and killing Nellie, and
torturing and killing Morris, Butterball, Monkey and Harley.
Nikko, an 8-month old German Shepherd puppy, was found in a garbage
container, her mouth and nose taped shut with duct tape. Poor Nikko
remained in the container for a week, crying and whimpering, until,
finally, there was silence. Nikko had urinated on the rug, and this
was her punishment. Herbeck admitted to the murder of Nikko.
The Rock County District Attorney dropped animal cruelty charges
against Barry Herbeck for the torture and killing of Nikko. The Rock
County District Attorney dropped the charges against Barry Herbeck
for the sodomizing and murder of poor Nellie.
Herbeck procured his victims by answering "Free to Good Home" ads,
sometimes with his children. He claimed that he wants to give the
animals a good home. He even pretended that his son was heartbroken
over the loss of his 14 year old cat. In reality, Herbeck was
obtaining these animals to torture and kill them. Herbeck reportedly
told police that he punched the cats, twisted their necks and threw
them against a wall until they died to relieve his pent-up anger.
Rock County Humane Society official, Cheryl Silha, reviewed
veterinarian reports on the dead animals and said the animals had
been tortured. And these animals were tortured and abused over and
over and died a slow death.
Herbeck pleaded no contest to five counts of mistreatment leading to
the death of an animal and one count of possession of a firearm as a
felon. In exchange for a "no contest" plea, the Rock County District
Attorney agreed to ask for a reduced sentence for Barry Herbeck and
he dropped the charges against Herbeck for killing Nikko.
Herbeck is also a convicted pedophile and served time for first
degree sexual assault of his then 6-year-old stepdaughter.
Barry Herbeck was up for parole on July 3, 2001.His parole was
denied.
The Wisconsin Parole Commission received hundreds of letters and a
signed petition!
He is scheduled for mandatory release in 2006. However, cannot seek
parole for another 2 years!

Subject: Free to a Good Home! The Death Sentence:
Free to a Good Home!
The Death Sentence.
This is how some people see your giveaway pet:
Free bait to train fighting dogs.
Free bait to train greyhounds.
Free fish bait.
Free snakes food.
Free money from the research lab.
Free sacrifice for satanic rituals.
Free animal for malicious pranks.
Free animal to set on fire.
Free animal to insert a firecracker into.
Free to a good home to breed indiscriminately.
Now you know why we always charge adoption fees for our pets, and
why we always screen so carefully for good homes. "Free" is all too
often seen as "worthless" in the eye of the beholder.
Please, don't offer your pets FREE to a good home, unless you just
don't care what happens to them.
Volunteers who work endless hours to save pets from the horrors of
abuse and homelessness bring this message to you.

This is something worth thinking about Jenny. I used to be very involved with animal rescue, and what some of those animals went through was shocking. One of the reason why I chose to step back from it.

My Shaan was 'free to good home'. I could of been anyone and all the guy was interested in was getting rid of him. He even said in the same sentence that the family were going to get a puppy

He opened the front door to let me out and Shaan shot out of it. He closed the front door and left my friend and I to chase him for half an hour

I doubt that the poor animal would of stayed there long Carole. He moaned because Shaan was supposed to of chewed a DVD player, he's never chewed anything like that all the time I've had him. A puppy is going to chew a lot.

The story that Jenny posted, I've seen happen in reality, and more besides

If it makes one person sit and think before they advertise thier dog, then it's done something.
