How this for a response to a pup’s natural impulses?
Authorities have charged a South Carolina woman with felony animal cruelty, saying she hanged her nephew’s [one-year-old] pit bull from a tree with an electrical cord and burned its body because the dog chewed on her Bible.
Animal control officers said Monday that 65-year-old Miriam Smith told them she killed a female dog named Diamond because it was a “devil dog” and she worried it could harm neighborhood children. …
Authorities say the remains of the dog were found under a pile of grass with part of an electrical cord around its neck.
It wouldn’t be nice to fantasize about strangling Smith with an electrical cord while angry dogs tear at her flesh, would it? No sirree Bob, it sure wouldn’t.
