Animal lover extraordinaire, Beth Stern is the host of the first-ever
Animal lover Beth Ostrosky Stern wrote a heartbreaking Instagram post from Thursday up to and including the rescue dog that prosecutors say was beaten to death on Long Island, tells the tragic pooch, “What happened to you was unimaginable.”
“Dear Danny,” the post begins, addressing the first of the three dogs that were reportedly struck — two fatally — the one after the other after being approved by Mineola newlyweds Ellie Knoller and his wife Jessica Kuncman.
“I’m literally sick,” she wrote in the post. “There is no excuse for the cruel, senseless inhuman actions such as this. as a society, we CANNOT tolerate the murder of innocent animals. My heart is literally broken.”

Tucker, a shepherd mix, was the first dog the couple adopted, prosecutors say. He died of a kidney rupture as a result of what prosecutors say was Knoller the “blunt force trauma for the dog” only nine days after his adoption from the North Shore Animal League.
Stern, who is married to shock jock Howard Stern is a dedicated advocate and spokeswoman of the asylum.

“Rescued from the terrible conditions in Virginia, the amazing rescuers from North Shore Animal League America brought you back to the safety of our shelter, where we fed you until you were ready to be adopted,” Stern wrote.
“Well, you were adopted. For MONSTERS. Imagine the fear and terror and confusion and pain, Tucker and the other 2 defenseless dogs experienced,” she wrote.
“You, Tucker, and the other 2 innocent life in my mind forever,” she wrote.
She ends the post promising “to do everything I can [to] ensure that something like this never happens again.”
