Animal lover Beth Ostrosky Stern penned a heart-rending Instagram submit Thursday to the rescue canine that prosecutors say was crushed to demise on Lengthy Island, telling the tragic pooch, “What occurred to you was unimaginable.”
“Expensive Tucker,” the submit begins, addressing the primary of the three canine that had been allegedly crushed — two fatally — one after one other after being adopted by Mineola newlyweds Ellie Knoller and his spouse Jessica Kuncman.
“I’m actually sick,” she wrote within the submit. “There isn’t a excuse for merciless, mindless inhumane actions like this. as a society, we CANNOT tolerate the homicide of harmless animals. My coronary heart is actually damaged.”

Tucker, a male shepherd combine, was the primary canine the couple adopted, prosecutors say. He died of a kidney rupture because of what prosecutors say was Knoller’s “blunt drive trauma to the canine” simply 9 days after his adoption from the North Shore Animal League.
Stern, who’s married to shock jock Howard Stern, is a devoted advocate and spokeswoman for the shelter.

“Rescued from horrible circumstances in Virginia, the unbelievable rescuers from North Shore Animal League America introduced you again to the security of our shelter, the place we nurtured you till you had been able to be adopted,” Stern wrote.
“Nicely, you had been adopted. To MONSTERS. Think about the worry and terror and confusion and ache Tucker and the opposite 2 defenseless canine skilled,” she wrote.
“You, Tucker, and the opposite 2 harmless lives might be in my ideas endlessly,” she wrote.
She ends the submit promising “to do every part I can [to] ensure one thing like this by no means occurs once more.”
