This is not the dog that was stabbed, but you get the idea
San Francisco police are looking for two men who stabbed a dog to death during a robbery in the city's Mission District early this morning.

According to police reports, a 20-year-old man was walking with his pup near 22nd and Bartlett streets at about 3 a.m. when two men confronted him. One of the guys grabbed the dog while the second man pulled out a knife.

The three guys got into a verbal argument. The robbers let the dog loose and ran off

The man was uninjured, but, sadly, his dog was not so lucky. The victim noticed his pet had been stabbed; he rushed the pup to an animal hospital where it later died from stab wounds.

Police did not say what type of dog it was, nor could they offer a description of the dog killers. But if you saw this crime or have any with information about is, please call police ASAP at 415-575-4444 or Text-a-Tip to TIP411 "sfpd" on the text field.

How horrible.

Just a thought ... don't walk your dog at 3am in that part of the Mission. Nothing good happens at 3am. Sorry about the dog though.


Terrible, terrible thing, if the victim is reading let me please say how sorry I am that this happened to your dog, and I'm sure you are devastated too. 

In a similar travesty in 2012, one of the things that helped to bring the criminal to justice was creating a face book page and setting up a reward fund. I truly hope you will take steps to aid the police in their investigation.

If you can't bring yourself to do this for yourself, do it for their future victims.

Vile scum, they should be killed on sight. Don't waste a trial on this garbage.


Just a thought; take okok for a walk instead.
