Galen AuneFort Myers, FL — A 30-year-old man is facing a felony charge of animal cruelty after admitting to officials that he killed his adopted pit bull with a pickaxe to the head because she was looking at him funny.

Authorities first received complaints about Galen Aune back in October of 2013. Neighbors reported seeing the man punching the pit bull puppy. Prior to that, neighbors said, Aune was seen picking the pup up by her ears and tossing her. Authorities apparently filed a report and continued to investigate.

Officers recently made contact with Aune at his home. When questioned about the alleged abuse of the dog, Aune reportedly responded that she was no longer a problem because he killed her.

“I know pit bulls, they are all about body language.” Aune told police. “She just looked at me funny and showed bad energy. I had to do something about it, for my health.”

Soooo, he axed her in the head and buried her in the backyard. Animal services took possession of the carcass.

According to animal services, Aune had adopted the dog, named Nelly, about eight months prior to the incident. She was a year and nine months old.

Aune was initially charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty, but after animal services, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office and the State Attorney’s Office got together, the charged was bumped up to a felony.

    Shoutout to my hometown! Horrible thing to happen but at least justice was served.

  • thebossessecretary

    Um. How does a dog “look at you funny”? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Not yet, but let’s hope so, they’re on the right track at least to serve up a little justice!

  • Buffettgirl

    Hey – Psycho, the only reason for the dog to “look at you funny” is because you did something “funny” to the dog and you deserved it. Otherwise, no, she didn’t look at you funny at all. She probably looked at you and wondered what she had done wrong to end up with a “human” like you…

  • thebossessecretary

    Did the dog put on your favorite hat? Flip you the bird? Roll its eyes while you were telling it one of your bullshit stories? I’m trying to imagine the dog “giving you a look.”

  • Evan

    this guy knows ALL ABOUT looking funny. I hope bubba lays the axe down extra hard on him.

  • Nick Trygg

    Holy SHIT that fucker is one UGLY Ass FUCK! Looks like his sisters also his wife, and his Aunt is also his momma.

  • thebossessecretary

    Maybe the dog put on his favorite hat. Or flipped him the bird. Or rolled it’s eyes as he was telling it yet another bullshit story. Although personally I think dogs just tend to give you that “I’m a dog” look. And sometimes the “Give me some of that pizza” look.

    Too bad she didn’t just rip his throat out.

  • MyHovercraftIsFullofEels

    I’m just not sure about the pro pit bull comments. They are okay until they kill the little neighbor boy? Or are they just biding their time to rip your throat out? Maybe the dog was one of satan’s minions and told the dude of his clans plan to take over the world one mauled old lady or kid at a time. And the guy had no choice. I mean wouldn’t you take matters into your own hands if it was us or them?

  • Sejanus

    I find he is looking at me funny from his mugshot…I think he should be hit in the skull with a pickaxe.

  • Stormclouds

    … you’re looking at the world funny, should we pickaxe you? Dumbass perp, poor dog. D=

  • medicwife

    You’re just fuckin’ stupid. Have a nice day.

  • LuvsHorror

    The dog looked at him funny because he is funny looking.

    I posed a scenario based purely on the user comments and authorship of this website. My comment is related to my having read every article posted to DD most of which have a distinctly anti pit-bull focus. For you to respond with an invalid and pedestrian comment indicates that you may actually be the stupid one in this tête-à-tête into which you have engaged me.

    Maybe her was doing things with her that would embarrass the hermit named Dave.

    Ah, Planet Florida, a backward world where the victims are punished, their assailants rewarded, dogs are for sex and the state delicacy is sweet, sweet human facemeat.

    Fuck I hate people!!!!

    So punching a puppy does not warrant an animal removed from a home.
    Picking up a puppy by it’s ears and tossing it around is not grounds to warrant an animal removed from the home.
    BUT a dog murdered via pickaxe, THAT finally warrants the dog being removed?!!

    OH, Florida.. That’s why…

  • Leasha

    I know this is old but why was NOTHING done for the several times he was witnessed abusing this dog?! Did they really not give a shit?
