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.…

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.…

The video was taken by a horrified neighbor and shows a 4-year-old boy throwing the puppy, named Tippy, into the street several times as the animal tries to run back into a yard. Tippy can be seen landing on his legs, head or back.

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.…
The video was released last week after someone sent it to the BC SPCA. The surveillance video was from inside an elevator of the Private Residences at Hotel Georgia in downtown Vancouver.
The footage showed a man, later identified as Hague, kicking a puppy several times in the stomach as it cowers on the floor before hauling the dog out by its leash.
Centerplate is a $6 billion dollar business that employs 30,000 people. The company supplies snacks for sports and entertainment arenas around the country, including Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, the Superdome in New Orleans, the new Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco and Notre Dame.
So as you can imagine, when this video was released to the public and quickly went viral, damage control went into full effect – especially after some sports fans said they would not be buying any food supplied by the company.…
SAVANNAH, GA – Briceson Moore is facing an aggravated animal cruelty charge after he admitted to using a dog toy to beat his girlfriend’s puppy to death.
Police say that last month, Moore beat his girlfriend’s nine-month old fox terrier to death with a “pole type” dog toy. He then took the dead dog to Forsyth Park Animal Hospital, where the vet took note of Moore’s odd behavior.
“Once the dog started to set in with rigor mortis the vet wrote that Briceson started grabbing his legs and making him like he was running while he was dead on a table,” said a SCMPD detective.
Officers say Moore eventually confessed to beating the dog and described how he did it.
“He hit the dog three times on each side, at least three times on each side with its own dog toy; it was a pole type dog toy and he said he didn’t want it to suffer so when it started bleeding from its nose he gave it a hard head shot,” said a detective.…
Shari Walters, 53, was charged Thursday with aggravated battery, cruelty or extreme cruelty to animals, and assault with intent to commit a violent felony.
According to the criminal complaint, one of Walters’ roommates called police a couple weeks ago to report she had been poisoned.
In the complaint, Walters’ roommate, Beverly Bradley, stated to police that she had witnessed Walters having sex with her German Shepherd, Spike, in a shed on the property. She was shocked, she told police, and returned to the house to wait for Walters.
When Walters walked into the home, she didn’t even try and deny that she had been screwing the pooch. Instead, she admitted to Beverly that she copulated with her dog. Multiple times. Furthermore, she also admitted she had been fucking dogs since she was 14. Hell, she even fucked her boyfriend’s German Shepherd, Jake. Multiple times.…
WEST WHITELAND TOWNSHIP, PA – Police have charged 24-year-old James Myers with cruelty to animals after he allegedly injected a kitten with heroin, choked it with a rope and slammed it to the ground.
Around 5 a.m. Sunday, a patrolling police officer noticed Myers parked in the middle of the street with his car door open. Under the door was a black kitten with a rope wrapped tightly around its neck. The kitten was lethargic, bleeding from the face and had some teeth missing.
A search of Myers car yielded bundles of heroin, hundreds of used bags of heroin, hypodermic needles, rope that matched the one wrapped around the kitten’s neck and a small box of cat shit.
The 8-week-old kitten was taken to a vet suffering from head trauma, where it was determined that the kitten had been injected with heroin. Dr. Jennifer Magilton first thought the kitten would need to be euthanized, but she first tried giving it some Narcan, a heroin antidote.
The kitten, now named Hope, immediately improved and is now expected to make a full recovery.…
The victim, upset over the slip, started arguing with Tapia. The argument escalated, at which point Tapia allegedly grabbed the woman by the arms and threw her into a wall in the home they shared.
At some point during the commotion, the woman’s pet raccoon hissed at Tapia, and he reportedly responded by grabbing the critter by its collar and tossing it into another room, where it hit a wall.
And that, my friends, is why I call all of my men “babe.” No confusion, no slips. Ever.
The woman was eventually able to leave the home, went to her ex-husband’s motor home and was taken to the emergency room. She later told police she had suffered at least two broken ribs. No word on the condition of the raccoon, though.
Tapia was arrested July 21 and booked into the Uintah County Jail on charges of assault and animal cruelty.…
EDGEWOOD, NM – Salvador Martinez has been accused of stabbing his girlfriend’s 9-month-old puppy to death with a screwdriver, then skinning the dog and marinating it in Italian dressing.
Torrance County deputies responded to the man’s home after receiving a call regarding the 46-year-old’s odd behavior. When they arrived, a woman told them that Martinez had killed the family dog, a 9-month-old black-and-white chiweenie named Onyx.
But that’s not all he did. After stabbing the dog to death with a screwdriver, he skinned and cut up the puppy before storing the meat in the fridge in an Italian dressing marinade.
Afterwards, he went online to search for dog meat recipes (I find wedding style dog stew to be quite tasty) and to check if eating dog was illegal in New Mexico.
Martinez freely admitted to deputies what he’d done, claiming the couple didn’t have enough food for themselves and the grandkids that lived there. This claim was denied by his girlfriend, who told investigators there was plenty of food in the house.…
ERIE, PA – Christopher Bisbee pleaded guilty Monday to beating his two cats to death with a golf club after one of the cats betrayed his trust.
Acting on a tip last June, Humane Society Animal Enforcement Officer Merle Wolfgang responded to Bisbee’s residence after someone there found the cats’ bodies in a trash can with “apparent trauma to their heads.”
Several people at the residence told Wolfgang that Bisbee, 32, was the person responsible. When interviewed, Bisbee admitted to killing the animals.
According to court records, Bisbee felt “betrayed” by the animals after one of them scratched him, so he responded by retrieving a golf club and using it to bash their brains in.
Investigators said Bisbee told them he “struck both cats numerous times with a golf club until they no longer were moving.”
Bisbee was charged with two counts of animal cruelty, but pleaded guilty to one second-degree misdemeanor count of cruelty to animals. The charge carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison and a $5,000 fine.…
