Thetford, UK – A 19-year-old British man has been placed in custody after admitting in court to microwaving a cat until it died. Jamie Blake was charged by Bury St Edmunds Magistrates’ Court with causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal. The details leading up to the killing, though, are sure to exonerate him.
The cat, paradoxically named “Buddy,” was reportedly informally adopted by Blake while he was staying at a group home in Thetford, UK. Blake said he would keep the cat in his room for company at night, feeding it cheese and tuna. According to reports, Blake told the court that the cat then started talking to him.
Did it say “Thank you for the cheese and tuna!” you ask? Of course not. It’s a cat. It’s evil.
According to Blake, what Buddy did say is that his mother’s dead ex-partner was, in fact, injecting his mother with heroin. The defendant, who has been described as having ‘mental health issues,’ then reportedly started arguing with the cat. As anyone who has argued with a cat can tell you, this proved pointless.…
DELTONA, FL — Police have charged three teens with animal cruelty after they admitted to using wooden sticks to beat three ducks to death.
Police say that a relative of the three boys called 911 to report watching the teens beat the ducks as she was outside hanging Halloween decorations. The woman told dispatch that she just witnessed her nephews “beat the (expletive)” out of some ducks and that the ducks are now severely injured and unable to walk. When police arrived at the location, an abandoned home, they found three dead ducks and a bloody stick.
When questioned, the two brothers and their cousin admitted to police that they’d hit the ducks with sticks. They didn’t remember who started it, but one of the juveniles told police they were wrestling before deciding to chase the ducks to play with them. Another said they had went to the house with the sole intention of killing the animals. One of the teens even admitted that after severely injuring the ducks with sticks, he’d stepped on their necks to end their suffering.…
SANFORD, FL — A couple months ago we reported on a man in Georgia who was accused of beating a woman with her dog. Now it is being reported that a man in Florida has been accused of doing the same thing.
Michael Jones, 42, was arrested last week on domestic battery and animal cruelty charges after police say he beat his live-in girlfriend with her own dog.
According to reports, Jones became angry when his live-in girlfriend and her daughter arrived home and one of them had tried to smoked crack cocaine. Jones informed her that he was going to kill her puppy before walking outside, pulling the dog out of his girlfriend’s her car, and punching out the windshield.
According to the victim, she tried to get the dog away from Jones when he began swinging it in the air. She said Jones pushed her to the ground and began beating her with her dog, striking her with the animal several times. After beating her with her dog, she says Jones choked her before riding away on a bicycle while carrying the dog.…
LAKE GEORGE, NY – Police in New York have charged an 11-year-old girl with the beating death of her foster mother’s 13-week-old puppy after the girl got angry with the woman when she would not give her a ride.
The incident happened on Sunday, not long after the girl was placed in the home for an overnight stay, after the girl’s foster mother refused to give the girl a ride somewhere.
In response to being denied, the girl reportedly beat the woman’s 13-week-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to death by repeatedly slamming it against the floor and a bed post.
The girl was charged with aggravated cruelty to animals and criminal mischief. She can either be prosecuted, or placed in some kind of diversion program. So far, the Warren County Family Court has not commented on the case.
Of course, as most everyone who reads this site is aware, an 11-year-old killing a puppy in such a fashion and for the reasons given, is a definite indicator that this girl has some major issues.…
Waco, TX — Seems like whenever there is a story about some drug-addled moron eating anything alive, the news affiliates throw in the word “zombie” in an attempt to ride out that Miami Zombie Train. A story out of Texas is no different where a man, allegedly under the effects of K-2, attacked some people before beating a dog to death and then eating on the dog’s corpse.
Police say they received a call from someone reporting a man “going crazy.” The man going crazy was 22-year-old Michael Terron Daniel and he was reportedly suffering a bad trip from ingesting K-2, the synthetic drug idiots take because they can’t find weed.
Witnesses say that after attacking several people at the home, telling them that the K-2 was killing him, he ran into the yard and started chasing a neighbor on his hands and knees while barking like a dog. Daniel then grabbed a medium-sized black dog and brought it onto the front porch where he beat and strangled the animal before he “began to bite into the dog, ripping pieces of flesh away,” Waco police Sgt.…
PALM COAST, Fla. — This story started off about a man who admitted to biting the lips off a kitten, but the more articles I read about it, along with comments from friends and family of the accused, the more a popular subject on our D’D Podcasts kept coming to the surface; What should society do with the mentally ill who commit criminal acts?
I’ll address that question in a minute, but first here are the details surrounding 28-year-old Angel Roman’s arrest for abusing his roommates’ kittens. If you want the short version of this entire article, it’s the last sentence. You’re welcome.
Roman was living with two women who had rented a room to him. He reportedly spent a lot of time with his roommate’s kittens and was often seen holding them and caring for them. It is believed he began abusing the animals after his roommates went out of town, leaving Roman to care for them.
While they were gone, Roman called the women to inform them he had found someone interested in taking two of the kittens off their hands, to which the women agreed.…
MONTEVALLO, AL – A family is distraught after having to have one of their dogs euthanized because someone had skinned the animal alive.
When Delana Dunnaway woke up Friday morning, she realized that one of her dogs, a 2-year-old pug named Bama, was missing. After a few hours of searching for the dog, her son-in-law found him in some woods behind their home.
“When he walked up on him, at first he thought it was something another animal had drug up and said, this can’t be possible.” Sadly, it wasn’t something another animal had drug up. It was, in fact, Bama. To their horror they realized that Bama was missing large amounts of skin and was barely alive.
They rushed him to the Calera Animal Clinic where the vet there informed them the horrible news that someone had skinned the poor dog alive. Doctor Rhonda Ellison says there were distinct straight edge cuts on the skin.
“The skin was completely off his back and off side of his flanks and from his neck to his legs, so completely skinned, someone intentionally did it,” she said.…
NEW BADEN, IL — Police in Illinois are trying to locate a couple of teenagers accused of using a skateboard to kill a 6-month-old kitten at a local park.
The owners say the kitten, named Tomale, wandered from their home and ended up a couple blocks away at a city park. Tomale’s owners eventually made their way to the park while searching for the kitten and ran into a group of kids there who informed them Tomale was dead and currently residing in a nearby trash can.
According to the kids, Tomale had been killed after a teen at the park pitched the kitten towards another teen who used a skateboard as a baseball bat. Horrified, they checked inside the trash can and sure enough, there was Tomale — it’s neck broken with blood and foam coming from its mouth.
“It was the hardest thing I had to do was to pull a kitten that we had just gotten for our kids out of a trash can and find out that some kids who were supposed to be up here skating, just doing innocent stuff, could sit there and murder a kitten,” sobbed Kristin Neu.…
Clearwater, FL — Officials with a Florida Humane Society are presumably reviewing policies on workplace fraternization after an ex-employee – and boyfriend of current HS medical director – was charged with having sex with a dog.
Eric Antunes, 29, was arrested after police reportedly found child pornography and evidence of his own act of bestiality in his possession.
Clearwater police began investigating Antunes after getting a tip that he possessed child pornography. A search of the computer yielded nine explicit photos and one explicit video depicting children, detectives said. According to police, he has admitted to downloading and viewing the child pornography on his home computer. A check of Antunes’ cell phone then revealed “several images of bestiality” involving Antunes and his girlfriend’s dog, police said. Ruh-roh.
The situation is a bit unique because, as it turns out, Antunes was a past employee of the Pinellas Humane Society and the girlfriend is the current medical director. Clearwater Public Communications Director Joelle Castelli said police do not have evidence that the girlfriend was aware of the fact Antunes was taking photos of himself engaged in sex acts with her pit-bull mix.…
LAKE IN THE HILLS, Ill — A teen in Illinois was arrested after she came home drunk, bit her mother and then bit the family dog several times.
Officers were responding to a home at around 4 a.m. Sunday after neighbors called to report loud screaming and pounding. There they encountered a 37-year-old woman who had been physically assaulted by her 19-year-old daughter, Analise J. Garner.
She said the pair had gotten into an argument after Garner arrived home late and drunk. This altercation resulted in Garner punching her mother in the face and biting her hand. But she wasn’t the only one in the home to be assaulted by Garner’s mouth.
Police Garner also chewed on the family’s 80-pound English bulldog. According to police, there were several visible bite marks on the dog.

WATERTOWN, NY – On the evening of April 19, 21-year-old Jessica Baughman allegedly escalated an argument with her grandmother by removing 12 of her grandmother’s pet goldfish from their tank and sautéing them until they died. She also broke the elderly woman’s wooden wolf statue which was valued at all of twenty dollars.
Apparently, after the fish fry, there was an extended lull in the fighting because it wasn’t until about 12:30 a.m. when the police were called. It seems that the argument had resumed and grandma, 63-year-old Vera Nichols, claims that Baughman had become enraged again, pushing her until she fell onto a bed.
Baughman was arrested on charges of felony cruelty to animals, fourth degree criminal mischief and second degree harassment. Baughman was detained at the Metro-Jefferson Public safety Building and her bond was set at $2000
I know I’d be pretty peeved if someone murdered one of my pets in a culinary fashion but I couldn’t help myself, I laughed trying to imagine how this transpired. Maybe I’m a big old jerk, I don’t know.…
Julie Walker, 48, was found guilty was convicted in her absence of causing unnecessary suffering to the 12-year-old akita. RSPCA Inspector Caroline Doe said Ruby was in a worse condition than, “any of the other thousands of cases she had dealt with.” Ruby needed to be euthanized due to her condition.
After finding her guilty of all charges, magistrates issued a warrant for Walker’s arrest. Walker reportedly presented herself at the Medway police station on Wednesday and was taken into custody.
Clearly a master of legal maneuvering, Walker – during the sentencing hearing – claimed that she knew nothing about her trial and asked for the case to be reopened. In rebuttal, the court clerk presented a fax that Walker had sent to the court acknowledging the case and asking that it be dismissed. D’oh.…

NORTH HIGHLANDS, CA — Police have arrested a man after he allegedly spray painted the face of a dog, and exposed two other dogs to some kind of household chemical.
Police were called to a home by the sister of 24-year-old Denis Vorobyov. She informed them that her brother had poisoned the family dogs and was threatening the family.

WOOD COUNTY, TX — Some asshole in Texas is facing criminal charges after throwing two dogs into a fire pit.
According to the police, four people were sitting around a fire pit getting drunk when 28-year-old Larry Lowery grabbed a dog and tossed it into the flames. A 5-year-old girl witnessed this and told her grandmother, Faye Norris, who confronted Lowery.
She says Lowery acted as if the entire thing was a joke, but apologized for his actions. Not long after, he tossed a second dog into the pit and then bragged about it.

Lowery told police he grabbed a stray dog that had bitten him two weeks earlier and accidentally tossed it into the fire pit after he stumbled. He has been charged with felony cruelty to animals and since released on a $5,000 bond.
“It takes a mentally disturbed individual, my opinion, to do something that cruel,” said Norris.…
ANDERSON, Ind. — A homeless man who allegedly set fire to his aunt’s house was arrested after being found “playing baseball” with the heads of decapitated cats.
According to reports, 32-year-old Danny Davis has a host of mental issues and hasn’t been taking his medications. He has been living with his aunt for a few weeks, but she had recently asked him to leave.
In response, Davis killed the family cat with a shovel before decapitating it with a knife. He then used gasoline to set fire to the back porch of his aunt’s house. Firefighters were able to get the blaze under control and no one was injured — aside from the cat.
Police located Davis among the crowd of people standing outside to watch the show, but he took off running. This WISHTV article simply says he was Tased and taken into custody. But others, like the one I linked to earlier, say that before he was taken into custody he was located a short distance away with a baseball bat, using the heads of cats as baseballs.…
