Man Strangles Family Dog Then Cooks It

June 28, 2013 at 3:58 pm by  

Elliot MugginsTAMPA, FL — A man in Tampa has been charged with animal cruelty after police said he strangled the family dog, then cooked it.

According to a police statement, someone called police to report one of their family members, 25-year-old Elliot Huggins, had strangled the family dog.

When police arrived at the location, they found the dog’s head in the garbage and the dog’s ribs cooked in a pot on the stove. The rest of the animal was found in the freezer after Huggins “expertly” cut the animal apart, according to an investigator with Hillsborough Animal Services

They also said that this is probably not the first time Huggins has done this. Huggins was taken into custody and charged with animal cruelty, and is currently in jail on $2,000 bond.

Personally, I don’t have an issue with people eating any animal as food, including their pets. Aside from obvious social taboos, I don’t understand why we aren’t able to consume meat from any animal that isn’t endangered (or human).

It’s not that I’m jumping at the chance to eat dog or cat, but I’ve heard donkey meat is delicious yet you cannot buy it here in the US. Lame.

    Guess that makes you an Ass-Man Morbid. I’m more of a leg man myself.

  • Well…..At least he conducted himself accordingly to the food chain……I mean it is normal to hunt wild animals such as deer, kill them and eat them….

  • newstarshipsmell

    Some men like to clean, some men like to cook…

  • Jessica Stewart

    He really should have avoided all this and just gone to I sort of agree with you on the whole ‘if we can eat one animal why can’t we eat all the animals?’ Nobody says crap to people who keep rabbits for a food source, or chickens. I like dogs, I’m not particularly interested in eating one, but the fact that killing one or two kinds of animal in the thousands is considered ok, but killing one is considered animal cruelty seems odd, unless he tortured the dog before he killed it.

  • Parrot Toes

    I don’t get how they are only charged with animal cruelty. It should be killing an animal. To me, cruelty would imply that the animal is still alive. Just a slap on the wrist and move on, nothing to see here case.

  • Parrot Toes

    Yeah, it is very hypocritical in the grand scheme of it all. I wouldn’t want to eat my pets though. Pets are family, not food.

  • Poor dog

  • itsknotme

    I don’t get it. All he was doin’ was taking his dog out for a Wok.

  • Fuck Head

  • Parrot Toes

    Hardee har har.

  • Buffettgirl

    Hot dogs anyone???

  • Right up the street from me about 2mi. I love Florida.

  • yeeaha, but to strangle a little dog? damn, yo.

  • Eh…I was just to trying put a positive spin on this, lol!

  • I am curious as to know what kind of dog it was….

  • FUCK TARD X 1000000000000000000..WHO IN THE HELL DOES THIS SORT OF CRAP and yes that was me yelling…this mother effer is NOT human..job well done to whomever it was that raised this prick.

  • Parrot Toes

    Are you saying you want the wiener!?! Sicko!

  • Buffettgirl

    Weiner takes all… 😉

    Elliot Huggins: “ya’ll wansum dog ribs, dey bomb as hell. gots the dank recipe”
    Marcus Curry: “aye man don’t forget to wash it first tho”

  • You are sick just as he was

  • Hope someone strangles him and cooks his behind also

  • Here comes the sensitivity police……There’s this thing called a “sense of humor” ya know.

    I dunno, when I consider some of the many heinous criminals featured on this site, I recall a popular* political slogan, slightly altered here to apply to them:

    “The solution to world hunger lies within each and every one of them.”

    Vote Soylent Green Party 2016!

    (*not really, my friends made it up to sponsor films at the annual B-Fest under the SGP moniker.)

  • I dunno man… never been fond of fucking a woman’s leg.

  • Fucking psycho.

  • GradientDescent

    My guess is that the charge wasn’t a result of eating the dog, but – rather – strangling it. It’s the same with chicken. Eating your chicken in public is rarely a concern. …but choking your chicken in public can invite all sorts of trouble.

  • Times is tough, dog.

  • Parrot Toes

    I see what you did there. Nice.

  • Texas Ranger

    So thats what I been doin wrong…dammit…thats what get for watching the dog for sex-ed pointers.

  • Kelly Eklectusbird

    Here in Oz we aren’t allowed to buy horse meat, they only serve it in certain restaurants with a permit.

    But we have a huge export business selling horse meat. Go figure.

  • IntelligentVirtue

    Right, it’s like how we protest the Chinese eating dog as we slather A-1 sauce on India’s most sacred animal

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    I’m kinda torn between both sides of this one.

  • Eliza Berntsen

    Dogs taste terrible, that could be why they aren’t on our menu’s.

  • BSmyth

    what’s with the dogs in household appliances today?

  • Parrot Toes

    Do you say this from experience? Cuz ya know, licking their ass probably doesn’t make one a culinary expert.

  • now you know where the meat comes from for all these sidewalk bbq pits…..???????????

  • PawleysGirls

    He strangled the dog-that is animal cruelty. It takes about two minutes to die from strangulation. During that long two minutes, the dog probably fought for its life. On another point, the article says this man cut the dog up “expertly”. We all know that serial killers almost always have animal cruelty issues in their past. Has anybody followed up on missing women that live near him, etc??

  • techsupp0rt

    It’s not that I’m inherently against eating dog… I’m just kind of against strangling them.

  • Parrot Toes

    We should check to see if he peed the bed first.

  • Vicki Adams Sloane

    So if pets are family u would save you pet before a human in a fire?

  • Vicki Adams Sloane


  • Vicki Adams Sloane

    Personally i think it’s gross ,but it’s still an animal so i cant bitch about him eating it. I eat animals too! just not dogs lol

  • Vicki Adams Sloane

    I dont protest. who’s we?

  • Parrot Toes

    Probably before yours……..

    Why the attack? Just because I consider my pets my family? There is nothing wrong with that. Just because your heart doesn’t have enough room in it for furry/feathered friends, doesn’t mean anyone else’s can’t. To be honest with you though, once my kids were safe, I would risk my life to save my pets. It’s my life and yeah, I love them that much.

  • FrikkenFrak

    Saw the headline, saw it was Florida. That’s all I needed to know.

  • FrikkenFrak

    I couldn’t agree more. It’s one thing to be cruel to an animal like leaving it chained up or not feeding it properly. That’s cruelty. People who skin alive, mutilate, kill and torture animals deserve a far harsher punishment.


    We can’t co-exist with these animals, just like we can’t live with rats, mice and cockroaches.

  • Eliza Berntsen

    So I’ve been told by my brother who had one whilst in Taiwan.

  • Jessica Stewart

    The alleged “strangling” is biased hearsay at this point, unless they’ve done a
    autopsy on the pup, and I heard there weren’t any left overs.
    *ba–dum-schsss* ‘Thank you, I’ll be here all night folks!’

  • Blair Krueger

    The Chinese also collect urine from boys under 10 years old, soak and boil eggs in it, and throw a Virgin Boy Egg Festival.

    Go ask some little boys for their pee in America. See how that goes.

  • Blair Krueger

    I’d save my dog before you.

    Not even trolling.

  • restlessvagabond

    “I don’t understand why we aren’t able to consume meat from any animal that isn’t endangered (or human).”

    I don’t understand why you’re discriminating against long pig.

  • IntelligentVirtue

    Are you bigoted because other than taking an oppurtunity to put down the Chinese based on the fact that I used China as an example, I REALLY don’t see what your comment has to do with the price of tea in China (pun intended)

  • IntelligentVirtue

    You must be a simpleton. Even a person who is only slightly astute would gather that if my comment was meant to imply hypocracy and that I didn’t even take a second even exclude MYSELF from said hypocracy than maybe, just maybe, the comment was made in a tongue-in-manner that maybe was hyperbolic so the author didn’t feel a need to clarify and or be “pc” and or specific.

  • IntelligentVirtue

    And yes I realizethat I made a few mistakes & for some reasonI have a hard time editingfrom my phone but it does not invalidate my post!!! Nor melt the icy tone of my reply!!!

  • Melissa Stopka

    What kind of dog? If it was a Chihuahua then this doesn’t make any damn sense. Something bigger like a German Shepherd, now THAT makes more sense. Maybe dude was just hungry.

  • Blair Krueger

    I’m only bigoted against the intentionally stupid.
    Please enlighten me, how does stating a fact turn into “putting down an entire people?”

    I’d really love to hear this.

    Heaven forbid that I was pointing out that social differences are legitimate things (what, exactly, has caused most of the wars throughout history?) and not slamming an entire race, right? Cause then you might have to respond to the truth of the matter instead of slinging insults like monkey dung.

  • IntelligentVirtue

    Oh pleaseintentional stupidity would be to buy the shit you just shoveled. Let’s not pretend that the reasonyou chose a “fact” that would be considered especially disgusting by American viewpoints wasn’ta not so thinly veiled insult. You, I, and pretty much anyone without any severecognitive disability could tell you how most boys in America would react. No, the only truth here was that your comment was meant to be disparaging and again, IT HAD NOTHING to do with my comment AT ALL other than the fact that you used it to segway into puttingdown the Chinese.

  • IntelligentVirtue

    You know what, I don’t do this often but I’ll apologize if those were truly your intentions; perhaps I was thrown into the defense after the other clearly confrontational comment. I replied up here because disques is acting wonky on my phone (I visit all non work related sites on my phone due to my magnetism of viruses). And to show my sincerity I will up vote your comment despite being called stupid!

  • Parrot Toes

    I think you try waaaaay too hard to come off as a genius for some reason. You don’t need to be a genius to post here. Lots of us aren’t. Besides, we have a resident genius already. @Athena would kick your brain.

  • IntelligentVirtue

    First, I came back to see if @Blair had seen and/orrepliedto my apology. But as for your comment, I’ll take that as a compliment, I think it’s a great aspiration to be a geniusor attempt to show intelligence regardless of the surrounding environment.And pray tell, are you suggesting that this site has a cap on intellectual commentators? Further why are you trying to pin me against on of the site owners? I’ve read their post and it seemsthat they welcome a rather diverse amounts of input. Honestly, those are rhetorical questions, seriously they are. I don’t comment here often and the likelihood that I’d come back to respond to you is 0. Oh, and that was a directed comment so you jumping in makesit seem like you’re hollering. In other words,if it don’t apply let it fly.

  • MyHovercraftIsFullofEels

    So late to this party but I also don’t see the problem eating anything that is alive (except your own kind if you are sentient). I do believe that the killing of your food animals should be reverent; that animal is giving its life so that you can live. Swift and as painless as possible, meat that has adrenaline in it doesn’t taste as good.

  • Parrot Toes

    Um, yeah. Like I said, you try too hard and you’re only proving that point. Athena isn’t an “owner” of this site, she is a moderator and is very good friends with the actual owner, @Morbid.

    NB: I don’t know why the @ tags aren’t working. I am mystified.

  • OodlesofDoodles

    Agreed! All jokes aside, this guy is one sick motherfucker who, in my humble opinion, deserves to suffer for the rest of his life. Also, OF COURSE IT HAPPENED IN FLORIDA.

  • Athena

    Nope, isn’t working for me either.

    PT, dahling… You flatter me and speak the truth about my relation to the site. Not an owner. Not even close. Morbid graciously keeps me around for who knows what reason. May be that we’re friends. Yeah, I’d call it that. But I digress. You know I love you, girl. Forever my other favorite Canadian. Goddamn, I just hit three stones with that one. It’s a good Monday.

    IntelligentVirtue strikes me as a pretty sharp gal, albeit a bit unnecessarily vitriolic. I would rather she simmer down a bit, make some friends and feel welcome here rather than find herself apologising for hastily defensive comments. After all, she’s right, we do love us some diversity (and I’ve made the same argument she started out with before; granted, just to stir the pot, but I can also see the validity).

    Now, on three… “Kumbaya my Lord, kumbaya…” No?

  • IntelligentVirtue

    It’s all kumbaya here:-) oh, and even thoughI don’t take Internet shenanigansseriously which also includes not revisiting and/orthinking about e-exchanges after I’ve left a web site I guenuinely felt terribleabout levyingcharges that a poster is bigoted on flimsy “evidence.” now, it’s a new day & new post are up & everything that had occurred in here is staying in here! The only reasonthat I even responded is because I too am a mere mortal who trembles at feet of the Great Goddess Athena (literally too, I can’t wait to visit the Parthenon)

  • Parrot Toes

    Yup, my first comment to IntelligentVirtue was not supposed to be a bash. I was merely pointing out her need to explain her corrections was not necessary while taking the opportunity to playfully “shout-out” one of my favourite people on here. She took it the wrong way and I really didn’t want to get into a debate over nothing.

    “Kumbaya my Lord, kumbaya,” is my middle name. Well, maybe not, but it IS stuck in my head now. Thanks alot. 😛

  • Athena

    Sorry. <3

  • Lindsey Summer

    $2,000 bond?! That’s all?

  • Athena

    Speaking of Canadians… I nearly forgot to wish you a happy Canada Day. I hope you’re drinking excessively and watching fireworks (but not lighting them, because that would be dangerous).

  • Jessie Heavin

    Why? Why, Florida? You never cease to amaze me.

  • everjaded

    It was a pit bull mix (seriously)… and just a little guy, about 5 or 6 months old.

  • Michelle Dahmer

    It’s not the eating that was cruel, it was choking the dog to death 🙁

  • JGo555

    This wouldn’t have been a crime in China.
