DAVENPORT, FL – Victor Solano has been arrested after Polk County deputies say he hanged his dog from a tree for making a mess in his trailer.
Solano had initially asked his neighbors to borrow a gun so he could shoot the 18-month-old pit-bull for making the mess. This, as we all know, being the standard method of disciplining animals when they misbehave.
When neighbors refused to let the Solano have a loaded firearm, he tied a rope around the dog’s neck and hanged it from a tree, killing it. Solano then tied the rope to an ATV and dragged the dog to a local pond where he dumped the body.
Investigators were able to recover the dog’s body and delivered it to Polk County Animal Control. Solano was arrested and charged with felony animal cruelty and unlawful disposal of a dead domestic animal.
This isn’t Solano’s first brush with the law. He was released from prison in March 2013 and had been arrested on previous charges of burglary, larceny, carrying a concealed weapon, battery domestic violence, and violation of parole.…
HOUMA, LA – Police have accused Richey Kiffe of suffocating four of his girlfriend’s Chihuahua puppies and cutting off the head of her favorite.
Kiffe and his ex-girlfriend, 37-year-old Suzanna Guthrie, have been broken up for a couple of weeks, but the split has not gone smoothly. Guthrie has already filed a restraining order against the 52-year-old and has been temporarily living with a neighbor.
Last week, the pair got into another argument regarding the lease and the care of Guthrie’s four Chihuahua puppies. Guthrie went to a neighbor’s to avoid having another fight with Kiffe, but returned to the home after Kiffe would not return her texts.
When she went back to the home, she was greeted with a horrifying sight. Right there, on the front doorstep of the home, was the decapitated head of her favorite Chihuahua puppy.
“Boom, looking at you right there,” said a neighbor. “A little puppy head about that big, dude. The head, it was clean cut, washed, everything.”
Inside the home, under a couch, were the remaining three puppies.…
Barra da Tijuca, Brazil - A woman in Rio de Janeiro has broken up with her fiancé after cameras she installed caught him viciously abusing her two French bulldogs.
Ninna Mandin suspected something strange was happening when her bulldogs started acting withdrawn soon after her now ex-fiancé, Rafael Hermida moved in with her. To get to the bottom of what was happening she installed a camera in her home.
What she found after reviewing the tapes left her feeling betrayed and sick. Two videos that have been making rounds on Facebook show Hermida picking up one of her dogs by its neck before slamming it to the ground with all his strength.
The video cuts to another incident of Hermida holding a small bulldog by its chest in front of him. He is seen head-butting the dog’s face before dropping the dog to its back and lifting it up by one of its back legs. He dangles the dog above the ground before lifting it higher, dropping it face first to the tile.…
Anderson was charged with felony and misdemeanor animal abuse and abandonment after police and animal control officers were called to Anderson’s apartment back in November. There they would find her severely injured dog, Roadrunner, on the side of the road.
One witness told police they watched Anderson wrap a leash around Roadrunner’s neck to pull him outside. She then left the dog there after she slammed him on to concrete before choking and kicking him. Another witness said he saw Anderson throw Roadrunner off of a third-floor balcony, then take the dog around the building but didn’t see either of them again.
Anderson denied abusing Roadrunner, claiming she loves animals. She says the dog ran out before she could stop him and then was hit by a car. She says she panicked and left the dog by the side of the road instead of getting him medical help.…
PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL – Manuel Gonzalez got himself into a bit of trouble after his wife caught the 61-year-old sexually abusing the family’s pet Chihuahua.
The incident happened back in November at the home Gonzalez shared with his wife three children. Reportedly, Gonzalez went out into the backyard and decided to molest the family dog.
Unfortunately for Gonzalez, and fortunately for the Chihuahua, his wife happened to check out their security camera and witnessed her husband sexually abusing the animal then ran out to confront him.
According to the police report, the dog “was constantly in an uncomfortably submissive posture, with his head and ears down while Gonzalez abused him and touched himself.” The dog tried to escape multiple times during the encounter and “did not like what was happening.”
Gonzalez was arrested and would later plead guilty to charges of animal cruelty and sexual activity with an animal. He received 100 days in jail along with 12 months’ probation.…
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – Wildlife officials say some teens at an upscale Fort Lauderdale condominium complex used an electronic cigarette to kill a pelican.
The attack, which happened last month and captured on security camera, shows one of the teens holding the pelican down and blowing fumes from an electronic cigarette into its beak and eyes.
The teen then holds the pelican’s beak closed so it couldn’t breathe. He does this repeatedly throughout the night until the pelican died, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Liz Barraco.
After reviewing the security footage, a security guard was able to identify one of the teens as a residence at the condominiums. They met with the teen and were able to identify the teen who killed the pelican as a 16 or 17-year-old non-resident.
Wildlife officers met with the teen and his father, then charged him with a violation of the federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act. It’s only a second-degree misdemeanor which carries a maximum penalty of a $500 fine and 60 days in jail.…
Dunnedin, Fl – Daniel Adams and his girlfriend were arrested after police say the couple took their child to kill a dog owned by Adams’ parents, then tried covering up the killing by staging a robbery.
Adams, 34, drove to his parent’s home with the intentions of handling his parent’s dog, Daisy, a 4-year-old Labrador they felt was a danger to others. Along for the ride were his girlfriend Lauren Curran, 28, and their son.
According to the couple, Daisy had been demonstrating aggressive behavior, including snapping at another family dog, that left the couple and their son fearful of the dog. To fix that issue, they decided to kill it.
Investigators say Curran “killed the dog with an intravenous needle filled with an unknown medication.” When the deed was done, the couple tried to cover their tracks by making it appear like the death was the result of a burglary inside the home by stealing an iPad.
Their fool-proof plan to kill the dog and cover it up by stealing an Apple product – that can be tracked once turned on – was thwarted after what can no doubt be a very short investigation.…
GRAND ISLAND, NE – Cynthia Anderson is facing animal cruelty charges because the 56-year-old allegedly drowned a 3-week-old puppy in an airport bathroom after being told she could not take it on the plane.
Police say that on Thursday, Anderson tried to board a flight out of the Central Nebraska Regional Airport with two dogs in crates and three young puppies. Because U.S. flight regulations do not allow dogs younger than eight weeks old to fly, airport workers would not allow Anderson to get on the plane.
Anderson really wanted to get one of those puppies to Florida, so her parents came and picked up two of the puppies while she hid the remaining puppy in her carry-on bag. When she tried to get on the plane again, airport security busted her trying to smuggle the puppy and told her she could not board her flight.
That’s when police say Anderson took the Doberman puppy into one of the airport bathrooms and drowned the dog in a toilet. After another woman discovered the dead dog, Anderson was arrested and charged with one felony count of animal cruelty and was placed in the Hall County Jail.…
KALAMAZOO, MI – Back in November, 53-year-old Timothy Tucker was accused of punching his girlfriend in the face, then took the couple’s puppy and repeatedly struck her with the animal until it died.
According to court documents, the assault left the woman with a “severely swollen eye” and covered in the puppy’s fecal matter.
In December, Tucker pleaded guilty to one count of third-offense domestic violence as a second-time habitual offender. He also reached a plea deal that dismissed one count of killing/torturing animals, ensuring Tucker was able to avoid being convicted as a fourth-time habitual offender.
When Tucker was in court on Tuesday for sentencing, Kalamazoo County Assistant Prosecutor Mike Reisterer argued Tucker be sent to prison, citing Tucker having prior convictions for third-offense domestic violence in 2005, fleeing police in 2006 and writing counterfeit checks in 2008.
“This is one of the few cases that turns my stomach,” Reisterer said in court. “To take a two-week-old puppy and bludgeon his significant other to the point that she requires hospitalization and the puppy is dead is incomprehensible.”
Even though Circuit Judge Alexander C.…
Deerfield Beach, FL – The owner of a South Florida reptile store featured here two years ago after a man choked to death during a cockroach eating contest, has been arrested after he allegedly hit employees with a lizard.
Police say 40-year-old Benjamin Siegel, owner of Siegel Reptiles, is facing battery and animal cruelty charges after video surveillance captured Siegel throwing a bearded dragon lizard in the air and swinging it multiple times. He also hit employees with the bearded dragon multiple times and threw Gatorade on them.
According to a Broward Sheriff’s Office arrest report:
“The defendant did unnecessarily torment the animal, handling the animal in a cruel and/or inhumane manner and intentionally committed an act to the animal which results in excessive and repeated infliction of unnecessary pain or suffering to the animal.”
Siegel was already on bond for previous battery charges at the time of this incident, so when he faced a judge his previous bond was revoked. He was still behind bars without bond on Monday.…
MIAMI, FL – Charlotte Wonjah has been arrested after the pregnant 26-year-old was accused of attacking her boyfriend, his 14-year-old daughter, as well as killing the family’s 1-month-old puppy by spiking it head-first into the middle of the street.
The incident happened at the home Wonjah shares with her boyfriend, his 14-year-old daughter from a previous marriage, their two 2-year-old daughter and her 8-year-old son. According to Wonjah’s boyfriend, he called police after Wonjah started physically assaulting him on Tuesday.
“My girlfriend just went ballistic and started hitting me, biting me and punching me and then my 14-year-old daughter tried to intervene, you know to pacify the situation. She punched my daughter and threw her against the wall. That’s when I called the police,” he said.
When police arrived, they noticed Wonjah’s 8-year-old son had bruises and welts in various stages of healing that indicated prior child abuse. She admitted to having anger issues and that on several occasions she beat the boy in the bathroom with a rope and hangers.…
BAKERSFIELD, CA – Two teens in California have been arrested after video surfaced of them feeding two dogs a live cat.
Earlier this month, someone tipped off County Animal Control that they had received a video on a social networking site that showed two teens feeding a cat to two large dogs while the teens could be heard in the background encouraging the dogs.
Animal Control staff reviewed the video, which was recorded over the summer, and then contacted the Kern County Sheriff’s Office to request an investigation. Detectives were eventually able to identify the teen who posted the video online, then later identify the two teens in the video – a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old boy.
Both teens were arrested and booked into Juvenile Hall. They are now facing animal cruelty charges. Police are asking that anyone with any further information on this case to call the Sheriff’s Office at 661-861-3110, or Secret Witness at 661-322-4040.
I’ve said it before, but I am so glad that we did not have the ability to easily record stupid shit we did as teenagers.…
MIAMI, WV – Police have arrested Jonnie Boggess after they say the 47-year-old had sex with his beagle-mix, Piglet.
I’m not entirely sure how an animal rights group found out Boggess was allegedly having sex with his dog, but they contacted State Police in Quincy once they did.
According to the complaint, when Boggess was interviewed he admitted to them that he had been drinking in bed with Piglet before he had “gentle sexual intercourse” with Piglet.
After he had sex with Piglet, he said he held her, petted her, and told her that he loved her. He also told police the sex was ok for a couple of reasons: one, Piglet weighs over 40 pounds and two, Piglet had been spayed.
He would later state he wished he’d not had sex with the dog and that his girlfriend told him she heard Piglet yelping but Boggess ensured police he had not hurt Piglet.
Boggess was arrested and charged with animal cruelty. His bond, $5,000, was paid for by someone shortly after it was set.…
According to police, Sean Johnson was captured acting all suspicious and stuff on surveillance video Tuesday afternoon. In said video, Johnson is apparently seen approaching the innocent plush toy in the clearance section somewhere near the garden department. He was then seen carrying his new found love to the bedding department.
It was there, police say, that Johnson got busy.
In the surveillance video, Johnson is seen exposing his Johnson and humping the horse — utilizing short, fast movements. When finished, Johnson reportedly shot his load on the horse’s chest. Sated, Johnson placed the stuffed animal on top of a comforter set and exited the store.
I have to assume security personnel were rolling on the floor laughing, while vomiting, maybe, and that’s why they failed to apprehend the plushie fucker before he was able to make it out of the store.…
MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Vicente Ridon and his wife, Dorma, have been sentenced to life behind bars after being found guilty of crimes related to the production of animal cruelty videos.
Two years ago, someone stumbled across videos of young girls torturing animals. For those of you who are unaware of these types of videos, let me ruin your morning a bit.
The videos this person found are called crush videos, and are created for people who get aroused by watching women crush things with their feet.
The videos often include women simply stepping on food or insects, but can also include women stepping on live animals like kittens, puppies, mice, reptiles, etc.
The videos the Ridons manufactured included crush-type scenes, but they also ramped up the animal abuse to horrific levels while forcing a 12-year-old girl to participate.
Their videos featured:
- a dog getting skinned alive
- rabbits flailing and screaming as their ears were cut off and as they were set on fire
- a dog getting burned with a flat iron
- a monkey and several dogs getting hit in the eyes with the sharp end of a stiletto heel
- puppies getting crushed until they vomited their own internal organs
If you want to get a taste of just how heinous these videos are, then watch the following news report.…
REDDING, CA – Ryan Watenpaugh is facing charges of stalking and animal cruelty after being accused of killing his ex-girlfriend’s dog, cooking it and then feeding it to her.
Watenpaugh’s ex-girlfriend contacted police earlier this month to report she was being stalked by her physically abusive ex-boyfriend, 34-year-old Ryan Watenpaugh.
She informed them that she dated Watenpaugh for only a few months, but in that time he’d physically assaulted her numerous times. On two occasions, she’d been held against her will whenever she tried to get away from him.
In early August 4, the couple split up after she ran from her apartment during one of Watenpaugh’s episodes, only to return later to find he was not there, nor was her Pomeranian named Bear.
About a month later, they reconciled long enough for Watenpaugh to cook her a dinner. Days later, she says Watenpaugh sent her a text messages referencing the dinner he’d cooked for her and asking her how her dog tasted.
“How’s your dog taste? I thought it was better with BBQ and those Hawaiian buns.”
“I guess u could bury what u didn’t eat.”
“The smile on my face when you read this … priceless,” read some of the texts.…

According to reports, a volunteer with the Newnan-Coweta Humane Society was walking a pit bull named Clara when Clara managed to get off her leash and attack a Westie Terrier. Depending on who is telling the story, Clara was simply pulling on the other dog’s ear or had gotten the smaller dog by the neck.
Regardless, the Westie’s owner, Craig Emory, stepped in and began stabbing Clara repeatedly with a pocket knife in front of dozens of families inside of the store.
“It is the worst thing I’ve ever seen,” said Teresa Reeves, who was was there with her fiance and her 10-year-old daughter. “We heard screaming at the front of the store and went running to see what was happening. The pit bull had the smaller dog at the back of the neck holding the loose skin and fur there,” said Reeves.…
