    Suspects Sought After Puppies Killed by Fireworks
    Wednesday, June 30, 20

    TULSA, Okla. — Six puppies were killed, apparently by fireworks placed in their mouths, shortly after teenage boys were seen carrying Roman candles (search) in a north Tulsa neighborhood.

    Animal control officers said they were following leads Tuesday but had no suspects in Sunday night's attacks, during which one person told police they heard a puppy yelp.

    An older dog, a 4½-month-old black Labrador (search) mix, suffered burns on her muzzle and hindquarters from apparently being used as a moving target for fireworks.

    The Tulsa Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (search) was caring for the injured dog and for the puppies' mother, a 1½-year-old black-and-tan heeler mix that was not harmed.

    The injured dog had begun to eat and was expected to survive, said Laurie Mayes, executive director of the Tulsa SPCA.

    The SPCA believes the puppies died from fireworks that exploded in their mouths.

    A woman, Tonya Curry, 27, found all the dogs Monday among the remains of fireworks inside a vacant house and took the two survivors to the SPCA. When an animal control officer arrived later, the dead puppies were gone.

    "Somebody probably went to clean up their mess so they wouldn't get in trouble," Officer Charity Curtis said.

    The SPCA has raised about $1,000 and other organizations were undertaking similar efforts to reward people who provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible, officials said.

    I can only pray that my children will grow up and always remember the lessons I have tried to instill in them. How heartbreaking. I don't know how a person regardless of age could harm a helpless puppy or any animal for that matter.

    Probably how Timothy McVey got started. How scarey! If a person can use explosives on little animals, they probably wouldn't hesitate to use them on people.

    If they try it again, maybe they will blow themselves up first before they get the chance.

    That makes me so cranky. How can somebody be so hurtfull to a little puppy. These kids need to be taught a lesson. How would they like it if we put firworks in there mouths and lit them and watch them cry because it hurt them....Grrrrrr. They get everything they deserve.
