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?
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!”
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.
