A CRUEL NOTE was left on the body of a pomeranian named Fox that was beaten to death in Miami.

It read: “We beat it 2 death lol HAHAHA!”

Fox’s owner said the 13-year-old dog’s body was discovered by a “frantic” neighbour outside the owner’s apartment less than 24 hours after Fox disappeared. The note was on top of the dog.

Local police are looking for the attackers. The owner, Ronald Boisvert, said he doesn’t know why anyone would want to hurt Fox.

Dr Ron Ridge, a vet, said Fox had 10 broken ribs, missing teeth and a broken back. The vet says Fox was likely kicked to death.

Boisvert said the dog vanished Friday afternoon after his girlfriend took him outside. The neighbour found Fox on Saturday.
