Man Posts Video of “Poisoned” Dog on Facebook then asks For Donations

Buffalo, New York., — A man posts a video on Facebook claiming it to be his brother’s dog slowly dying from being poisoned by his sister-in-law then asks for $2,000 in donations which leaves many questioning the man’s true motive.

According to posts on Facebook, both men claim that McQuiller’s estranged wife poisoned the dog. Ambe Reeder posted the hard-to-watch video via his Facebook page and stated: “This what that rotten no good b*tch did to my brother’s dog that he loved KITA, this Ambe Reeder John B Mcquiller little brother, so the world can see what my brother and dog had to go through. .I want to cause her the same pain…Does anyone have a puppy….inbox me…”

McQuiller took to his FB page to thank supporters saying: “JUST buried my LOYALIST,TRUSTED,AND BELOVED FRIEND. MY DOG “KITA”.KILLED POISONED.BY MY ESTRANGED WIFE,SOMEONE WHO SWEAR THEY LOVED ME,BY KILLING MY BELOVED DOG OF 9YEARS,SAME DOG THAT PROTECTED HER AND LOVE HER UNCONDITIONALLY.THIS IS WHAT U DO TO A LIFE THAT DEPENDED ON U,TRUSTED U. IF THERE WAS ANY LOVE LEFT IN REALATION,SHE JUST KILLED IT ALONG WITH KITA… TO WHICH KITA SUFFERED ALL THE WAY TILL HER PASSING.SHE STAYED WITH ME ALL THE WAY TIL CHRISTMAS MORNING.HELL OF A CHRISTMAS FOR A SO CALLED WIFE TO GIVE HER HUSBAND.

McQuiller then states he is NOT looking for funding but a “voice” that can help bring justice to the death of his dog. He ends with “THANKS YOU ALL FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT,LOVE,CARE,AND CONCERNS AND COMPASSION,KITA WILL BE MISSED,BUT WE CAN STILL GET THIS B# TCH.”

Many however are doubting the authenticity of the claim stating that because there is not frothing or vomiting, the dog may have not been poisoned and may have been having a seizure. Others question as to why they decided to video tape the dog suffering rather than driving the dog to a veterinarian. Many have offered puppies or even brought up the notion of adopting and yet the GoFundMe page continues to accrue donations.

It’s no secret that losing a pet can be just a traumatic as losing a person in the family but is the video an attempt to take advantage of the visceral effect people may have or is it just a man trying to help his brother?

UPDATE:

Ambe Reeder has removed the video from FB and has also made his page private. John B Mcquiller has completely deleted his FB page. The two man have their pages back up but several of the posts regarding the incident have been removed. Oddly enough the GoFundMe page is still available and already has over $500 in donations. Also, the goal was increased from $2,000 to $2,500. John Mcquiller left an update stating:

“Wow I am appalled by the audacity of some of the humans that walk this planet…. My facebook has never been deleted. No this is not a scam and furthermore I dont want anything from any of you . I hope god handles all the nasty people that have commented with abusive and rude comments and I hope the karma you receive for the way you all have acted is swift and harsh! Lost faith in the human race a lil more today !
Thank you all that have been backing me!”

UPDATE: 1/2/2014

Olean Police arrested Gertrude McQuiller on New Year’s Eve. Officers say on December 23, the Gertrude,60, admitted to the crime and that she told officers she poisoned Kita to get attention from her estranged husband. Gertrude intentionally fed Kita Xanax pills by putting them in the dog’s food dish.

She is charged with torturing and killing Kita, who later died and was buried near McQuiller’s apartment.

  1. Funds for what?!! The dog suffered for 12hrs not vet help…. come on…. what do you need the money for?? to buy another $2k puppy? Why was thid dog left to suffered and not taking to a vet or at least inducced vomiting? again why do you need the money if there are no vet bills?!!# you also failed this poor dog…. you all should be charge with animal cruelty.

  2. I feel it is a scam….2,000.00 for a dog?!?!? Go to a shelter.!!!!! And ppl are right…there are emergency vets open 24/7 he could of taken it too….could of gave it something to make him /her vomit. I have lost faith in the human race a lil more today watching this ignorant man !!!!!

  3. This is a complete scam…John had more than enough time to get dog to hospital…he killed Kita then wanna ask for money..go to the shelter and adopt a dog…i don’t believe the dog was poisoned…wheres the vomiting…kita suffered for 12 hrs..someone needs to report his ass..please share this article because I believe that this is the sickest scam ever.. Shame on you John b mcquiller

    • OMG I only watched 26 seconds, much too upsetting to watch anymore, and could not believe that they were not enroute to a vet. If they truly loved that dog, they would not have been sitting there. I don’t believe they need another dog if they don’t know what to do in an emergency. I also agree with the others about adopting one from a shelter. RIP Kita

    • The man isn’t ignorant Jessie – he’s evil. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least to find that he and/or his brother poisoned the poor dog. This is clearly an effort to get sympathy and money from people who love animals. True animal lovers, however, would question why he didn’t rush the “poisoned” dog to a vet but, instead decided to record it. No one who truly loved their pet would sit around videoing their death and watching it suffer and two days later start asking for money to “buy” another dog. No, this is nothing more than a scam and he can be as outraged as he wants to at my comments.

  4. This video and story disgusts me. The only one I have sympathy for is this poor dog. The fact 5 hats she wasn’t taken to a vet angers me and even more so the man who throws a blanket on her and she isn’t even dead yet. In the pics of her this man refers to her as bitch.Ughhh yes justice needs to be brought for Kita . I hope and pray and will do all that I can to make sure all those who are involved in this video pay for the animal abuse that was taken place on this poor little girl . As far as what 5 he man stated as Karma, the only ones that Karma will be looking for is you all and all I can say is may God have mercy on all your souls.

  5. Really? Looks like to me that this family failed to bring this suffering family dog to a vet when needed.
    This family should not have an animal of any kind!!!

  6. UGH and to think that he raised over $500.00 … we should all tell go fund me to cancel this and send all the money back (cancel all payments) Just sickening !!! Bring your dog to the vet you idiot you are the one who killed Kita in the end. The second I knew my dog was poisoned I would be on my way to the vet not wait. YOU DO NOT DESERVE TO OWN ANOTHER PET !!

  7. You think we want money we want justice for Kita. Your opinions have altered our mission.. We did everything we were supposed to do…vets spca cops…someone started a donation page who we don’t know but the money goes to cruelty not us…instead of helping your contributions of negative comments and opinions only hinder our mission…when the story hits the real news we will gladly accept your apology…smh…way to jump the gun assumers…there are no facts in this story just words of a desperate so called reporter!

    • YOU DO NOT NEED MONEY TO DO ANYTHING FOR “YOUR MISSION” You bring the dog to the F….ng VET … then charge your sick c you next tuesday ex wife. You don’t need money to do that. if you brought your dog to the vet and it cost money you couldn’t afford then fine do a go fund me for that but NOT for any other reason. YOU FAILED KITA END OF STORY AND YOU SHOULD BURN IN HELL FOR THAT !!

  8. THIS WAS EXTREME ANIMAL CRUELTY! THIS MAN NEEDS TO BE PROSECUTED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT. SO DOES ALL THE PEOPLE WHO STOOD THERE AND DID NOTHING TO HELP THIS POOR BABY. THIS MAN KILLED HIS DOG TO MAKE MONEY, THIS IS SAD AND INHUMANE.

  9. kay, so why are you all so quick to believe that McQuillen did this and not his wife? I see a lot if people doubting this man’s story like “OMG why would his wife do that to the dog she cared for for nine years?” Like she would be incapable of such a thing…. What if the roles were reversed and it was a woman clutching her dying dog, claiming that her husband poisoned her? You’d probably find it more believable, yeah? Because there’s absolutely *NO WAY* a woman would be a fucking horrible psycho cunt, right? Get a grip.

    The reason video was recorded, was to show with a dog and owner were going going through, to show. what that cunt did. they had tried to call the vet, they could not get through; it was Christmas… I’m not surprised. seconds, it was the brother who posted asking about a puppy. He even stated in various comments that he wanted to find one that looked like her for his brother. His brother didn’t say anything of the sort. me, personally, when my dog died the last thing I wanted was to get another dog anytime soon, much less one to replace her that would remind me of her… My friend on the other hand, when he lost his dog, he wanted another one immediately. He wanted a distraction, something to take away his pain from losing his baby… it was easier for him to pour all of his time and effort into raising a new puppy than it was to deal with the loss of his little girl, and grieve. he raised that puppy with as much love as his beloved girl, and when he finally did accept her passing and alliwed himself to grieve, that puppy was there with him, comforting him, having already decided that he was her human and she was his new, loyal companion, in just the short amount of time she had been with him.

    I believe McQuillen’s story, completely. People can be completely horrid and women are absolutely no exception.

    • Oh please !!! Even in our area (and even rural areas) there is ALWAYS a vet available … and in his area there are ALWAYS emergency vets around…. I had a cat that was sick and I called my vet who was closed and they had a answering service and they contacted her and I went in and was there within **5 MINUTES** and I paid for an emergency visit of $150.00 in addition to whatever else was needed. DON’T stick up for this sick individual there is always a vet available … THAT IS NO EXCUSE !!! I hope he is charged for cruelty to his dog … he is a sick individual and also his ex wife is even sicker than he is to poison an innocent animal to get back at this idiot.

      • Actually, you have no way of knowing if there really was a vet available or not. There are some really terrible vets out there, some who really just don’t give a fuck. In my town we just had a vet lose his license and face ma y legal charges after many animals have died under his care due to “gross negligence”… Some breeds more than other, bringing in to question foul play. His and the three other clinics in my area who boast of 24-hour emergency service are unreachable 75%+ of the time even during regular hours and messages are never returned. So, no, there is NOT always a vet available.

        • OMG YOU ARE AN IDIOT…. I JUST LOOKED UP IN 10 SECONDS 10 OR MORE VETS IN HIS AREA … THEY ARE IN NEW YORK … STOP STICKING UP FOR THIS MAN .. OR ARE YOU AS SICK AS HIM? THERE IS NO NO NO EXCUSE FOR THIS AND HE WILL FIND THIS OUT WHEN HE IS CHARGED FOR A FELONY FOR ANIMAL CRUELTY.. Stop posting you are just making yourself look stupid.

          • Living in the state of New York doesn’t mean everything is readily accessibke. The entire state isn’t NYC. I live in California. I suppose that means I have total access to all services and anything else you can think of 24/7… Guess what? I don’t. I live in a small remote town in Northern California, there are at least 15 vet offices in my immediate area, 10,of them claim to have 24-hour emergency services… This is false.

            You make yourself look like a complete asshole by insulting aomebody you di ‘t even know (who is speaking quite calmly and rationally) typing in caps (whomever screams the most and throws the loudest hissy fit wins, right?). I am not a sick and disgusting fuck like this man’s estranged wife probably is. I have been caring for elderly and disabled cats and dogs since I was a child. I have taken in animals that nobody else wanted simply because they were old (many in states of perfect health.) I have never lost an animal to negligence, only very old age. I have, however, had a dog that fell very ill and started having violent seizures, it is very terrifying and can send one into a panic. She lived, thankfully, but due to the severity over her seizures I could not transport her until they had stopped… It was the middle of the week, the vets in the area had just closed, and guess what? Nobody was answering any of the emergency lines… The only one who did put me on hold and then I was disconnected and unable to get through again. My friend even lived next door to one of them and he just responded that he had “just gotten home from work and was busy.” Luckily I was able to cool her down and the seizures stopped… I stayed up all night calling every vet until 8am until one finally answered because they had just opened.

            You, miss, have absolutely NO RIGHT to insult me, call me an idiot and claim that I am as “sick” as you think this man is.

            Again, nobody knows all of the details.

            What will your reaction be if the wife came forward and confessed? Would you change your tune if the investigation turned up undeniable proof that she did it? Or would you still insist that this man is a monster and set up his ex?

            I guess we will just have to wait and see how it all pans out, now won’t we?

            • It doesn’t matter who did what they are both 100% wrong. I totally agree with what Kim is saying and was saying from the beginning …. he should have called every vet that he could … someone would have answered most have answering services. Here in a small town in Canada our vet even has an answering service. It isn’t unheard of and for an area in which he is located there is no one that doesn’t have an answering service .. heck he could call the SPCA and ask them … He didn’t do ANYTHING right and now he is asking for money ..whatever money he gets he should donate it to a animal rescue. I don’t know where you live Justine but if you search in his area as Kim did you would find many vets available. What are you saying that he was justified by not calling a vet? Or trying to contact one? This dog suffered for over 12 hours there was plenty of time .. I would have been on the phone with my vet the instant I realized something was wrong … this happened the day before Christmas and she died Christmas day. I came home to an emergency with one of my dogs on a Sunday and on Christmas Eve and still got through to my vet and I am in a small town in Canada (also live across the border to a small town in Maine and still got through to my backup vet there. But the one I used was in my town in Canada and closer/faster to get to.

              • I’m not saying he was justified for not calling a vet or the spca, if he dis , in fact NOT try to get ahold of either, then yes, he should be held accountable. All we have to go by is that he claims that he did and that the SPCA has been swamped with calls since. And yeah, maybe it is just my area, but on Xmas eve we become a complete deadzone by 5pm, save for one 365 day/year liquor store. So maybe I have grown used to finding oneself in a state of complete helplessness should an emergency arise at a late hour or, god forbid, anytime on a holiday. You wait hours just to SIGN IN at the ER on a holiday or the night before unless you are rushed in by ambulance or stumble in bleeding to death.

                Hooray, Humboldt County. We are the hemorrhoid-laden asshole of the US.

  10. Oh and animal cruelty IS A FELONY IN NEW YORK. I hope the cops and the judge charge this sick person with a Felony … John McKiller look up animal cruelty … this is for sure cruelty by NOT bringing this poor innocent girl to the vet and just video taping it … you could have videotaped it for “evidence” while bringing her TO THE VET YOU EVIL SLIMEBAG !!!!!!

  11. New York’s animal cruelty law: Aggravated cruelty to animals is defined as: “with no justifiable purpose, he or she intentionally kills or intentionally causes serious physical injury to a companion animal with aggravated cruelty. For purposes of this section, “aggravated cruelty” shall mean conduct which: **is intended to cause extreme physical pain**; or **is done or carried out in an especially depraved or sadistic manner.”** This is a Felony punishable with a fine up to $5000 and/or imprisonment up to 5 years. THERE ARE TWO THINGS THAT THIS SICK EVIL TWISTED MAN DID … they are surrounded in stars

  12. Why so much venom and spite? All these hateful people. I believe this story as of right now. If they’re faking it, the man should be in hollywood. Have any of you tried to get the help of a vet in an emergency, let alone during one of the nation’s biggest holidays?

    By the way, these people are calling for an spca investigation THEMSELVES. The guilty rarely go out of their way to get authorities involved, and hey if he really is guilty he’ll get himself in trouble.

    You people are horrible.

    • The only thing I am disgusted about is that he never attempted to try to bring her to the vet … there are many vets out therethat take emergency calls… that was wrong and the dog died because of it. He should have attempted to get her to a vet.

      • yes i and others have tried on holidays and weekends and yes on Christmas and I do not live in a big city or where they are located… I live in a small town.

        • I meant yes I have tried and have gotten through via answering service….Christmas Eve on a Sunday. Also Christmas one time and I live in a small town with only ONE vet available. This man had multiple vets to contact. If it were me I would have someone be driving while I was on the phone finding one that was open of the 10 of them I found listed. Frig videotaping it that I would never do I wouldn’t want to see my baby like that. No venom just common sense. Just kind of pissed off that someone would stick up for this vile evil man.

      • They attempted to contact a veterinarian and got a messaging machine. Other than that I can’t say why they didn’t take the dog physically to a vet themselves. Perhaps in their duress the figured that it was a crapshoot whether or not any vet would be open if they drove there and they were afraid of wasting time driving the dog to the middle of nowhere to die instead of in its own home? Stress makes people make bad decisions, and it pisses me off to see people comment so harshly when they probably have no idea if they would be able to handle the same situation with as much grace and levelheadedness as they demand from this man.

        In the area where I live there are no 24/7 vets. Some of them are on call, but on Christmas eve/night if you call them who knows if you’ll get a response. In my area, every veterinarian I have talked to also leans toward being profiteering instead of caring. I recently had an emergency with my pooch and was lucky at 12:30 at night to get through to ONE of multiple vets in the area, even though several others claimed to be on call. I hope the SPCA does investigate the man as well as his ex wife, but at this point based on what I’ve seen I see nothing out of the ordinary about his reaction.

        • I live in a rural area I have 2 available on the Canadian side (small towns) and 2 on the US side (rural)and ALL of my vets have an answering service … for vets not to have this service is irresponsible and unprofessional and CHEAP. They need to be available 24/7. I don’t care I would pay for an emergency visit (once it was an emergency…AND it was Christmas eve AND a Sunday. It cost a lot of money but I paid it because MY dog is like a child to me. when I looked up vets in his area there were TEN (10) that I could see and he could go farther … to wait 12 hours is LUDICROUS and borders on inhumane and CRUEL. Why are people sticking up for this monster. I would be on the phone calling every vet in the area while someone else would be driving. Stop sticking up for this man.

      • I have been reading all of what everyone has been saying about poor Kita, and when I saw the video, I cried so much, as I have a very sweet dog of my own.
        Now that I know that poor Kita suffered for 12 hours without any help except for her owner holding her and crying him self? And others taking a video on their cell phone. If they had a phone and couldn’t get ahold of a vet on Christmas Eve, and also knowing what she was poisoned with. My question is why didn’t anyone at the scene Google what to do to help her? They had plenty of time to google if they couldn’t get ahold of a vet? Exanax pills could be deadly but also they could have given her something if they googled it, like giving her milk or something she would throw up with to get the Exanax out of her system? Also it shows a picture of the ex wife admitting to poisoning poor Kita and she was charged?? What this man is asking for money is beyond me except for maybe a burial for Kita, but that should go straight to the vet that would do the examination and the creamation, no money should go to anyone else. I feel for this poor dog ( Kita ) she was a victim for no reason at all, to me they are family. My baby is everything to me and I would just be so devistated if something were to ever happen to her. So if anyone is willing to give out donations, I would suggest to find out who the vet is that is taking care of Kita now that she has lost her poor life and send it directly to them. REST IN PEACE KITA you are safe and in doggie heaven with a lot of our babies we have lost in the past
        and now, So run like you have never ran before, be happy. Lots of love from a unknown dog lover

  13. I am disgusted with this. If the dog was truly poisoned and it might have been, why was it not taken to the vet?? Did the exwife poison the dog and then call someone to say so?? Why would people raise money for this man to buy a new dog when he made no real attempt to save this one?? Why is there not a police investigation on this whole situation?? Too much just does not make sense to me!! People…..DON’T give this man money…..period

    • While I agree that nobody has any right to ask for donations (at the moment, maybe later to sue the wife if an investigation reveals her guilt), the incident happened on a holiday, when it’s very unlikely you’ll be able to get a hold of someone. This fact could have also occurred to the dog’s owner, who may have feared wasting precious time and making his dog uncomfortable just to drive it out to a closed veterinary clinic.

  14. No trusted Vet? What about the Vet this owner hadbbeen using for the 9 years of his dog’s life.? Closed? Vets now work together with Emergency Hospitals so there is 24/7 care availability when your regular Vet is closed. No good excuse for letting this dog suffer the way he did. He didn’t have the funds to get her at least euthanized to stop her misery? And he wants us to buy him a new dog? When pigs fly pal! I feel sorry for your dog but, not for you.!

  16.

TAKE THIS BASTARD DOWN..PLEASE CONTACT ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS..PLEASE CALL OOLLEAN POLICE LET EVERYONE THAT HE IS GONNA GET AWAY WITH MURDER

  17. for those that think this is a scam read this, the wife was arrested and charged, and she admitted to doing it, as well as it states that medical help was sought but nothing could be done.

  18. Both are as bad as each other, the ex for poisoning Kita, and the owner for letting the dog suffer for so long, even if he had no car lm sure somebody would have helped if he had told them what happend. And for a fund to be set up before the dog is even buried is pretty hard to swallow, and for the owners comments to the ppl that did not believe the story well it only made matters worse.

  19. I see a pet dying on a bathroom floor with his own frantically falling apart because he can’t save his pet life. He’s not the one filming and it doesn’t appear as if he has knowledge that this is being filmed. I feel sad for his lost fore it would help the owner if you’d all just show more compassion towards the lost of his pet and not the fact that he wasn’t strong enough to think straight during his troubling time. R.I.P. everlasting peace.

  20. Just because the ex wife may have poisoned the dog does not excuse this maggot for letting the dog just lay there and suffer and die. To the people saying “there may not have been a vet available” that is even more BS! veterinarians are DOCTORS and almost all of them are on call for emergencies and very few would ever refuse service for this kind of emergency even if they had to setup payments for the owner. The problem is there are ALOT of people who want pets but do not take the animal to the vet because they don’t want to pay out the money. As far as the Gofundme account…far as i am concerned, why in gods name would i send you money to get another dog that will probably never be taken to a vet either.

  21. I am so sick of all this bullshit. I would have called the cops for help ASPCA. You didn’t do anything to help the poor dog. You all killed her period
