My daughter and I went on a Sunday drive July 17 on Black Mountain Road. We came to a large flat rock and decided to get out of the car and sit in the sun...but the strong scent of animal decay permeated the area.
I looked and found the worse case of animal abuse I've ever encountered. There was a path of fur to the place where the dog lay; its front legs badly burned, half its face burned, and its eyes still open.
It seemed obvious that one or more people had recently brought the golden retriever out here, bound its legs with strips of a T-shirt, used part of the T-Shirt to tie around a stick, set that on fire, and then set the dog on fire...and then kicked or pushed the burning dog down the mountain.
Who did this and why? And was it their dog or someone's beloved family member?
Sociopathic behavior has been studied for centuries and it has been shown that many who are afflicted usually have a past that involves some form of cruelty to animals. Let's stop this criminal now, before we have another serial killer on the loose in San Diego.
