WOOD COUNTY, TX – Some asshole in Texas is facing criminal charges after throwing two dogs into a fire pit.
According to the police, four people were sitting around a fire pit getting drunk when 28-year-old Larry Lowery grabbed a dog and tossed it into the flames. A 5-year-old girl witnessed this and told her grandmother, Faye Norris, who confronted Lowery.
She says Lowery acted as if the entire thing was a joke, but apologized for his actions. Not long after, he tossed a second dog into the pit and then bragged about it.
According to one of Lowery’s neighbors, one of the two dogs was able to escape the fire pit and was last seen running away while on fire.
Lowery told police he grabbed a stray dog that had bitten him two weeks earlier and accidentally tossed it into the fire pit after he stumbled. He has been charged with felony cruelty to animals and since released on a $5,000 bond.
“It takes a mentally disturbed individual, my opinion, to do something that cruel,” said Norris. That’s not just your opinion, Norris. That’s probably the general consensus of those of us who are not mentally disturbed.Tags: alcohol, Animal Cruelty, Crime, fire pit, Larry Lowery, Texas
