Christopher W. DillinghamSTEVENSON, WA – A man is facing felony charges after he admitted to strapping a homemade bomb around his dog’s neck, then detonating it around 4 a.m. outside his home.

The explosion woke many people up in the neighborhood, with one neighbor saying it sounded like a high-power rifle was fired right outside his window.

When police arrived at the home of 45-year-old Christopher Dillingham, they found the remains of his dog strewn about the yard, along with household items.

When asked why in the hell did he just blow up his dog, Dillingham informed them he was preparing for the Rapture and that the devil was in the dog. When asked why he was throwing items from inside his home into the yard, he explained that “the souls of demons” were inside the metal objects in the house.

Dillingham, who owns and operates a fireworks stand called Thundershack, said his ex-girlfriend gave him the dog, named Cabella, and “put the devil in it.” So he made a bomb using black powder from fireworks then strapped it around Cabella’s neck before feeding it treats. He then stepped behind a wall and detonated the bomb, decapitating Cabella.

Dillingham was arrested on the spot and is facing charges of second-degree malicious mischief, reckless endangerment and possession of explosive devices. He will not be charged with animal cruelty because the dog did not suffer. Dillingham is being held on $500,000 bail.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, as well as the Metro Bomb Squad, was assisting in the investigation and more charged may be filed.
