Dog Attacked With Hammer For Giving Birth to Stillborn Puppies, Say Police

Target: E. David Christine, Jr., Monroe County District Attorney

Goal: Pursue the maximum possible penalty for man that allegedly tried to kill his dog with a hammer.

A man, Brandon Cramer, reportedly attempted to put his dog down with a hammer to the head and two blunt stabs to the stomach. The man allegedly committed this repulsive act because the mastiff gave birth to a few stillborn puppies. After he hit her with the hammer and stabbed her, he left her for dead along a yard near a local road in Saylorsburg, PA.

This case is disturbing not only due to the fact that the man decided to put his dog down after she gave birth to stillborn puppies, but also the way in which he chose to “euthanize” her. His actions after the murder attempt-dumping the dog in a random yard to suffer and die-is also cause for alarm.

This man’s blatant disregard for his pet’s life demonstrates the lack of empathy and compassion that all humans should have. If he does not possess this basic human emotion, then he should never have been a pet owner. He must receive the maximum penalty for his heinous crime and also be banned from ever owning animals again.

Sign this petition urging the district attorney to punish him with the maximum sentencing possible by law, if he is found guilty for this crime.


Dear Mr. Christine,

A man, Brandon Cramer, allegedly brutalized his dog by attempting to put her down after she gave birth to some stillborn puppies. Not only did he take it upon himself to decide she needed to die, but he tried to do it by himself with a hammer and a knife. After he slammed the hammer down on her head, he stabbed her twice in the stomach with a kitchen knife.

The mastiff did not die from these injuries, but the owner nonetheless left her to die when he dumped her in a random yard near a local road. These actions demonstrate a complete disregard for an animal, let alone this man’s pet. This type of callousness toward a living being is only a preview of what this man is capable of in the future, and his disregard for life may not be limited to animals alone.

There are many other avenues this man could have taken to avoid this alleged brutal attempted murder, but he chose to terrorize a weak and helpless dog that just gave birth to puppies. Needless to say, this man should never be allowed to own another animal again and should receive the maximum penalty for his disgusting crimes.

    Why did he even have a dog if you’re gonna try & kill it? What would he have done if these puppies lived, try & sell them? This dog was probably just his dog to pump out puppies & make money..Poor dog didn’t stand a chance with this goon…Maximum punishment now!
