MONROE, NC — A couple in North Carolina are under arrest after their foster child was found cuffed to their front porch with a dead chicken hanging from around his neck.
A sheriff’s deputy responding to an animal services call stopped by the home of Wanda Sue Larson and Dorian Lee Harper, both 57. Piles of garbage were around the home, along with abandoned and rusted-out vehicles. Chickens, turkeys, geese, two llamas and a horse were also found roaming the property, leaving the area with an overwhelming smell of urine and feces.
On the front porch of the home, the deputy found an 11-year-old boy. He was shivering, cuffed to the porch by his ankle, and had a dead chicken hanging from around his neck. Moments later, Dorian came out of the home with another child, releasing several dogs that began attacking the officer.
The deputy retreated back to his patrol car and called for backup. During this time, Dorian uncuffed the boy and removed the dead chicken from around his neck, placing the dead animal on a barrel.…Continue Reading
DAVIE, FL – A man with a history of battery arrests has been arrested again after allegedly using a cat to attack his girlfriend.
Kenneth Stuart, 41, was fighting with his live-in girlfriend last week when he walked into the bedroom holding her cat over his head, then threw it in her face. The cat ended up scratching the woman on the left side of her face and her eye.
When police arrived, Stuart told them, “Just take me to fucking jail. I’m tired of this.” And take him to jail they did, charging Stuart with battery, tormenting an animal, and resisting an officer without violence.
When he faced Broward Circuit Judge John Hurley to answer to the charges, he told Hurley he’s unemployed and unable to work because of herniated discs in his back. Hurley found that interesting, especially after reading the facts about the case.
“That’s very interesting. I didn’t realize you had such a bad back,” said Hurley. “They say you broke the TV, the computer, the kitchen window, and then during it, you pushed her, knocked the TV and the computer to the ground.”
Hurley ordered Stuart to be held in jail on a $16,000 bond.…Continue Reading
GRANTS PASS, OR – Federal law enforcement agents swooped in and busted a group of Oregonians Thursday, including a Romanian princess and her husband, for allegedly running a cockfighting ring. It isn’t every day you get to write up a story about a Romanian Princess and cockfighting unless you’re in porn, let me tell you.
Indictments unsealed in U.S. District Court in Portland charge Irina Walker, 60, and her husband, John Wesley Walker, 67, a former sheriff’s deputy, with hosting cockfights and illegal gambling at their ranch just outside Irrigon, in Morrow County. Prosecutors are seeking forfeiture of the couples’ ranch, which does business under the name Stokes Landing Sport Horses. Guess they got away with it for so long by not using the name Stokes Landing Sport Cocks.
The Walkers were scheduled to be arraigned in federal court in Portland Friday on charges of operating an illegal gambling business, along with four other people from Irrigon and Hermiston. According to court records, no lawyer was listed for either the Walkers or any of the other defendants. …Continue Reading
MARIETTA, GA – A Georgia man stands accused of hideous animal abuse after mutilating two puppies that a neighbor had asked him to keep at his house for a few days.
Robert Williams Davis, 38, was arrested shortly before midnight on Saturday. He was charged with two counts of aggravated cruelty to animals and three counts of tampering with evidence. According to the arrest warrant, Davis allegedly beheaded a 6-week-old black and white pit bull puppy late Saturday night with a pair of scissors.
“The puppy’s neck was completely severed with the head attached to the body by a single piece of skin,” an affidavit says. “The puppy’s body did not appear to contain blood, suggesting the puppy’s head was severed while the puppy was still alive.” That sound you may be hearing is my blood starting to boil.
The unfortunate pooch was decapitated by what was described as a “sawing” type motion, according to the police report. This is I ask, “Just five minutes, worm your honor, him and me alone?” [Pink Floyd reference in an article about a decapitated puppy?…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
TAMPA, FL — A man in Tampa has been charged with animal cruelty after police said he strangled the family dog, then cooked it.
According to a police statement, someone called police to report one of their family members, 25-year-old Elliot Huggins, had strangled the family dog.
When police arrived at the location, they found the dog’s head in the garbage and the dog’s ribs cooked in a pot on the stove. The rest of the animal was found in the freezer after Huggins “expertly” cut the animal apart, according to an investigator with Hillsborough Animal Services
They also said that this is probably not the first time Huggins has done this. Huggins was taken into custody and charged with animal cruelty, and is currently in jail on $2,000 bond.
Personally, I don’t have an issue with people eating any animal as food, including their pets. Aside from obvious social taboos, I don’t understand why we aren’t able to consume meat from any animal that isn’t endangered (or human).
It’s not that I’m jumping at the chance to eat dog or cat, but I’ve heard donkey meat is delicious yet you cannot buy it here in the US.…Continue Reading
MEMPHIS, TN – Police have arrested Marcus Curry after they say he killed a German Shepard puppy by placing it in a running dishwasher.
Police were called Wednesday by an apartment maintenance man who found a dead German Shepherd puppy in a dumpster. He told police it was the same dog he saw earlier on Curry’s apartment porch on a short leash and without water.
When he and some other workers gave Curry’s dog some water, they told Curry he needed to take better care of the dog. Afterwards, Curry took the puppy inside but came out an hour later to put a red duffel bag in the dumpster.
“I was thinking to myself ‘That must be the dog,’” said the worker. “I unzipped the bag and saw the dog and it was wet.”
When police questioned Curry, he didn’t initially admit to placing the dog in the dishwasher, but did admit he put it in the dumpster. But a witness told investigators that Curry told him he put the dog in the dishwasher and “left it in there too long” while another witness saw the puppy in the dishwasher and said it was not moving when Curry took it out.…Continue Reading
EAGLE POINT, OR – This happened earlier this month, but someone sent it to us and I couldn’t pass it up. Leland Kinkey has been accused of trying to rape his wife twice before killing a lamb with his bare hands.
Jackson County Sheriff deputies responding to a physical domestic dispute call arrived at a home to find 46-year-old Leland Kinkey running around his property naked and screaming. Kinkey allegedly told the deputies that he had killed a lamb by slamming it into a car, breaking its neck, because “he was trying to be a man.”
After detaining Kinkey, they got more details from witnesses at the scene. Deputies learned Kinkey had gotten angry an hour earlier earlier because of mechanical issues with a vehicle. Enraged, he went inside the home and tried to rape his wife. She was able to run out of the home, along with her two children, and jump into a van.
While trying to leave the property, Kinkey dragged her out of the van by her hair and began beating her.…Continue Reading

Video captured her neighbor’s son sneaking into her yard and snatching her dog, so she called police. When they arrived at the boy’s home, they found he was there alone. home alone.
The boy told them that his mother had been gone since earlier that morning and eventually confessed he’d taken the small dog, choked it unconscious and then drowned it in a hot tub at a nearby vacant house.

NEW PORT RICHEY, FL - A 4-year-old Rottweiler is dead after Brian Perry punched it to death only four days after he adopted the dog from Gulfstream Guardian Angels Rottweiler Rescue.
Grace Acosta, who runs the rescue, said Perry had passed all the necessary background checks needed to adopt Gipper, an 85-pound Rottweiler. You can check out some pictures of the dog in their “Happy Endings” section where it states: “His adoption came very quickly and his new family, Cristy and Brian are now in love with him.”
“These people that adopted this dog from us went through the whole thing. We had excellent vet reports, we had someone visit their home, checking the home. It was approved. And they came with their own dog to meet with us,’ Acosta said.
But after four days in his new home, Perry punched the Gipper to death after the dog ran to a neighbor’s home and began barking at other dogs through a screen enclosure. In response to this, 47-year-old Brian Perry allegedly killed Gipper by repeatedly punching it in the face.…Continue Reading
Cape Coral, FL – Police were called to Lisa Velez’s home on Sunday evening after she was found living with her two autistic children, one legally an adult and one a minor, in total and complete squalor.
They may have been called there by Velez’s estranged husband, who had returned to the home after being gone for over a year. He found Velez and his two autistic daughters living with eight cats inside a home littered with a bevy of cats, feces, trash, old food boxes, ants, spiders, vomit, roaches and general nastiness. There were even animal carcasses on the back patio.
It could have been her neighbors who have long suspected something wasn’t right inside the home. “I would come out at 10:30 at night and she’s out there, her daughter out there running around the street, yelling at every car over 30 miles an hour,” a neighbor said.
It may have even been DCF, who hav been investigating Velez for two years. They had visited the home previously and had instructed Velez to clean up the living conditions for her kids.…Continue Reading
George County Sheriff Dean Howell said they received an anonymous 911 call Tuesday night concerning a man who had set his dog on fire and was “going psycho while crazy on meth.”
According to police, when they arrived at Pierce’s residence, they found a small breed dog on fire and Pierce in his bedroom acting erratically. He told officers he “wanted to help the dog go to heaven.” Pierce has a rather odd definition for the word “help” as police say he doused the dog with a flammable liquid and then set it on fire.
I can only speculate he truly was on meth when his drug-addled brain felt this was a good idea, or people need to be real careful asking this guy for any kind of assistance in the future.
Surprisingly, the dog survived and was transported to the George County Animal Hospital. Aside from having the tip of its nose burned off, the dog may also lose its eyesight, ears, and a front leg.…Continue Reading
HONOLULU — Andrea Fiegle is the first person in Hawaii to be charged under a law making cruelty to animals a felony after she slit her dog’s throat because it continually sniffed her daughter’s private parts.
The Hawaiian Humane Society notified police about Fiegle when they became aware that she’d used a common kitchen item to slit the throat of her dog, Star. When they arrived at the home, Humane Society officials say the dog was already dead.
“We’ve done many necropsies over the years and this is probably one of the worst, most severe cases we’ve ever seen,” said Jacque LeBlanc from the Hawaiian Humane Society.
Realizing she was in some serious trouble, Fliegle called police to report what had happened, stating she did not mean to kill the dog. When asked if the dog was dangerous or if it had charged or bit someone, she said no, but that the dog would not stop sniffing her daughter’s crotch.
Andrea Fliegle was arrested on Sunday and charged with felony cruelty to animals in the first degree.…Continue Reading
NEW ORLEANS, LA – Police have arrested Kisha Carter on animal cruelty charges after they say she killed two puppies by tossing them from the third floor of a motel balcony.
The SPCA said they received a report that a guest at the Crystal Inn tossed the puppies from a balcony at the motel. Another guest found the injured puppies and rushed them to a nearby animal hospital. One of the puppies died on the way, while the other died at the hospital.
SPCA said they were able to identify Carter as the person responsible after interviewing the guest that found the puppies and reviewing the motel’s surveillance footage.
They worked with New Orleans police and Carter was subsequently arrested and charged with two counts of simple cruelty to animals. She is currently being held without a set bond on a municipal attachment – which, in Louisiana, usually means she failed to appear to court on a past charge.
If Kisha Carter is convicted, the most she would be looking at is a fine up to $1,000 and a possible six months behind bars.…Continue Reading
The video was shot during an act for Circo Suarez in Sonora state. In it you can see as U.S. citizen Alexander Crispin, 35, circles two tigers during his act. One of the tigers lunges towards Crispin, then pulls down Crispin’s pants causing him to fall to the ground.
What follows is the tiger pinning Crispin to the ground as it claws and chews his face and neck area. As spectators flee the circus tent, circus employees begin beating the tiger in an effort to free Crispin.
No offical word on how they finally got the tiger to let go of Crispin, but some commenters on the Youtube video angrily stated that the tiger was killed. Crispin was rushed to Red Cross hospital Huatabampo, Sonora where he died as a result of hypovolemic shock.
I know this guy died a horrible death, as you can see below, but I just have a hard time feeling sorry for him or anyone who is killed doing that kind of work.…Continue Reading
Jackson, TN – A pit bull in Tennessee is about to be euthanized at a local animal shelter after it was abandoned by the owner. The reason the owner abandoned the animal? The dog humped another male dog and the owner doesn’t want to own a gay animal.
The dog was posted on a Facebook page that lists dogs scheduled to be put down at a Tennessee ”kill shelter.”
“This guy was signed over to RC, not bc he’s mean or bc he tears things up, but because… His owner says he’s gay! He hunched another male dog so his owner threw him away bc he refuses to have a “gay” dog! Even if that weren’t the most assinine thing I’ve ever heard, its still discrimination! Don’t let this gorgeous dog die bc his owner is ignorant of normal dog behavior! He’s in kennel 10L and he WILL be put down tomorrow bc there is no room at the inn!”
Although homosexual behavior has been well documented within 1,500 species of animal, the fact that this dog got his groove on with another male dog doesn’t necessarily mean it prefers to feel its lipstick in the warm embrace of another male dog’s butthole (not that there’s anything wrong with that), as the dog could have simply been exerting his dominating over the other dog.…Continue Reading
Police in Lyons arrested 20-year-old Kevin Parrish earlier this week after doing just that.
Parrish was watching the 9-pound Chihuahua-Pinscher mix for his grandmother, who was out of state.
Parrish told police he had just heated up the oven to 350 and was preparing to make enchiladas, when the dog, Kudo, nipped at him.
Enraged, Parrish started punching the pint-sized pooch in the head and may even have strangled him a little.
Parrish then tossed the dog in the heated oven, police say, and was prepared to roast the little beast when he heard his brother enter the home.
Parrish’s brother and father rescued Kudo and rushed him to the vet, where was treated for cuts and bruises. He also had some singed fur, but is expected to fully recover.
Parrish’s father was the one to phone police, and is now caring for Kudo.…Continue Reading
Miami, FL – According to police, an unidentified homeowner heard his dog making a racket at about 5:00 Wednesday morning. He walked outside to find a naked man choking the shit out of his Rottweiler on his front porch.
That nekkid man was later identified as 20-year-old Jeffery Delice.
The homeowner confronted Delice and attempted to free his dog. At that point, police say, Delice attacked, biting and choking the homeowner.
Fearing for his life, the homeowner fired his gun twice, hitting the nekkid intruder once. In the foot.
When that failed to keep the crazed man down, the homeowner shot again. Unfortunately, the gun jammed. He did, however, manage to pin the crazy nekkid dude down while family members called for help.
When police arrived, the hungry little fucker tried to bite them, too.
Delice was transported to the hospital for the gunshot wound and is expected to make a full recovery. No word on whether drugs or alcohol were involved. *coughbathsaltscough*
He’s been charged with, among other things, assault, resisting arrest with violence, lewd and lascivious behavior and animal cruelty.…Continue Reading
Houston, TX – I am not a fan of PETA and their tactics, but every now and then they do something I like. Things like placing naked women in cages, and helping get people indicted for making and distributing videos depicting animals being tortured and killed.
There are a few type of videos that I absolutely abhor; child rape or abuse videos, flash mob videos, and animal crush videos. I’m sure most know what the first two videos consist of, but for those of you unaware of crush videos, let me ruin your day a bit. Crush videos are videos that usually depict small animals purposely being stepped on.
Back in August, PETA was alerted to some animal torture videos being sold online showing puppies, kittens, rabbits, mice, and other animals being tortured and killed. PETA determined that the alleged producers of the videos lived in Houston, Texas, and turned their evidence over to police.Continue Reading
Boise, ID - Michael Watkins was arrested Monday on charges of felony burglary and grand theft after he broke into the Zoo Boise and beating a monkey to death.
Saturday morning around 4:30 am, a security guard at the zoo observed two males in dark clothing outside the fence near the primate exhibit. They fled and police were unable to find them. Just before dawn, Zoo Boise Director Steve Burns was searching the zoo and heard a groan that he first thought was human. The sounds were actually coming from a Patas monkey who had been beaten and was barely moving. The zoo’s veterinarian was called but the monkey died as a result of blunt force trauma to its head and neck.
Police discovered a hat with a distinctive skull design near the site that was thought to have been left by one of the intruders. Turned out to be a pretty good clue because it led police to 22 year old Michael Watkins. “I speak for many of us in the police department and the community who were angered and outraged over this senseless crime,” said Boise Police Chief Michael Masterson. …Continue Reading
