    CO - Arsonist setting dogs on fire in Colorado

    Dog Burnings In Arvada, Jefferson County Investigated
    One Black Lab Dies, Other Being Treated At Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital


    ARVADA, Colo. -- Somebody is going around setting puppies on fire and Arvada police and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department are looking to see if it is the same person.

    On Monday night, around 8:30 p.m., a worker at the Colorado Cinemas Olde Town 14 movie theater on the 5500 block of Wadsworth Boulevard in Arvada found a kennel inside a burning trash bin located behind the building. Locked inside were two dogs, yelping. The worker grabbed a fire extinguisher and was able to put the fire out but it was too late for one of the puppies.

    The animal had been burned beyond recognition, police said.

    One 8-week-old black lab survived and was taken to Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital, where she is being treated for burns to her face and paws and smoke inhalation. Doctors expect her to make a complete recovery.

    Both dogs' mouths and paws had been bound with duct tape.

    Englewood police say the puppies and the kennel were stolen from the Colorado Humane Society Shelter, at 2760 S. Platte River Drive, on Monday night. The Humane Society's director said the burglar broke a rear window to gain access inside the Englewood building and to steal four dogs.

    The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department is also looking for a man who set one dog on fire and may have tried to do harm to two other dogs.

    A worker at the Bally's Health Club on Bowles Avenue near Southwest Plaza said he was walking outside, around 11:30 p.m., when he smelled something burning. At the back of the gym he spotted a small dog on fire in the stairwell.

    The dog had its legs bound and a fire accelerant had been poured on it, Jefferson County spokesman Jim Shires said.

    The worker said that he noticed a man, standing on top of the stairs, holding two other dogs. When the man saw that he was spotted, he dropped one of the dogs and ran away with the other dog. The dog in the stairwell was left at the scene, where it died.

    My sentiments exactly! People who harm defenseless animals need to be put away permanently!

    They have a video surveillance tape of a man in a drugstore at the counter paying for a flammable liquid. If this is the guy, I hope they stop this sick SOB before any more innocent dogs are tortured killed. How would HE like it if his mouth was taped shut and he was put in an enclosed space and set on fire!!??!!??

    Grrrr. I hope they get him/her/them.

    Someone who can do this, could do anything and will. We need this 'person' off the streets.

    I truly cannot fathom how anyone could possibly do this to another living thing! I feel sick, those poor defenseless puppies. An eye for an eye seems almost too good for this psychopath.

    This article talks about him being a dog owner. Sounds like he's definitely the one who did it.
