TEXARCANA, AK – An Arkansas couple were arrested after a neglected dog led police to a home with several decaying dog carcasses inside.

Magan Terry, 29, and Brandon Woody, 38, take animal neglect to new heights with that Southern Gothic “bodies decaying gracefully about the house” flava.

Hell, their unique way with animals led police right to their door.

On July 9th, Texarkana animal control officers were alerted to a stray white male pit bull on city property. When they responded, they found the dog in question, which was emaciated and so infested with fleas that “its back appeared to be black and the fleas appeared to move in waves across its body.”

When officers investigated the nearby residential area, they noted a rotting raccoon carcass in the suspects’ driveway. They are apparently quite familiar with Terry and Woody, having fielded multiple calls regarding the residence, both because of dead wildlife on the property and animal neglect.

Finding the front door standing wide open, officers decided to investigate further. They made it as far as the front porch before being covered in fleas.…

TROY, NC – A woman taking a walk in her North Carolina neighborhood was reportedly mauled to death by two pit bulls.

When the 66-year-old woman did not return home after her routine walk, her husband went out with neighbors looking for her.

When they were unable to find her they called 911. Responding police and emergency personnel would find her body along an unused road in her housing development.

According to reports, it looked as if the woman had been attacked by a dog so police immediately began searching the surrounding area.

Eventually they “located two pit bull dogs with physical evidence reflecting the dog’s involvement.

The dogs’ owner agreed to release the dogs to animal control so they could be euthanized and tested for rabies. Medical examiners also wanted to study the dogs’ jaw sizes.

As of Saturday, the case remained a death investigation and not a criminal investigation.

“This is a very tragic event, which has deeply affected the family, friends, deputies, and first responders,” Montgomery County Sheriff Chris Watkins said.…

ARLINGTON, FL – A 6-year-old girl has died after being attacked by a pit bull her family was pet sitting.

Police and firefighters were called to a house on Sunday after a man saw a neighbor running out of her house screaming for help while carrying a young girl’s unconscious body.

“I just kept hearing somebody (yell), ‘Help me, help me!'” the neighbor said. “She came out of the house and laid the baby down right there and told us to call the paramedics, and that’s what we did.”

When paramedics arrived, they found 6-year-old Jaelah Smith suffering from a dog bite to the neck. She was taken to Wolfson Children’s Hospital, where she later died from her injuries.

According to reports, Jaelah had been bitten by a pit bull terrier inside her home. The dog did not belong to the family but was at the home as they were pet sitting while the dog’s owner was on vacation.

The dog was picked up by Animal Care and Protective Services where it will be placed on a 10-day quarantine.…

BELLMEAD, TX – Police have arrested a man who got caught having sex with his neighbor’s male dog.

Someone called police early Saturday morning to report seeing a man sexually assaulting his neighbor’s dog in a fenced in back yard.

When police arrived, they found 26-year-old Philip Mercon still having some sexy fun time with the animal.

Mercon let go of the dog and tried to run from police but was quickly apprehended.

“Officers notified the animal owner on scene so that she could provide any care the dog needed. At this time, there are no reports of injury to the dog,” police said.

Mercon has been charged with bestiality, evading arrest and criminal trespass. He was later released from jail on $8,000 bond. If convicted, Mercon is looking at two years in jail.

Poor Mercon waited a year too late. Up until 2017, having sex with a dog in Texas wasn’t even illegal.…

CLAYTON COUNTY, GA — A 5-month-old girl was mauled to death by the family German Shepherd after her mother left her in the care of a roommate.

Terika George told police that after putting her daughter to sleep, she left the home for a few hours and left the girl in the care of her roommate.

The roommate ended up putting the girl to bed in one room while he fell asleep in another.

When George returned home at around 3 a.m. she found the roommate sleeping and her daughter dead after being mauled to death by the roommate’s German Shepherd.

Animal Control removed the dog from the home, and it has since been euthanized.

Family members said the dog had been around the girl since her birth and never showed any aggression toward anyone in the home.

“He ate by us, he slept by us, he followed us and sometimes I had her in her car seat and he would go over and check on her and walk away.…

HOLT, MI – A physicist at MCU has been charged with sodomizing a basset hound “with his hands and penis.”

In a press release, the Attorney General’s office said Joseph Hattey, 51, was charged with two counts of committing a crime against nature.

Reportedly, Hattey penetrated the animal with his hand and his penis.

The animal is currently in custody of Ingham County Animal Control. Officials say the incident did not happen on campus and the animal involved was not owned by the university.

Hattey worked as a radiation-safety technologist at the school for over four years before working as a physicist for the last two.

Hattey has not pleaded guilty to the charges and his lawyer says his client will explain the incident at his June 21st court hearing.

I absolutely cannot wait to hear his explanation.

MSU is still recovering from a previous sex-scandal involving Dr. Larry Nassar (who seemingly molested the entire Olympic gymnastics team under their watch).

So it’s understandable they issued the following statement to let everyone know how quickly they acted:

Michigan State University was informed by the MSU Police Department on April 17 of a criminal investigation against Joseph Hattey, a health physicist with the Environmental Health and Safety Unit (note this position does not work with students, patients or animals).

CARTER COUNTY, OK — From the “Headlines I Never Thought I’d Ever Write” department comes a story about a 52-year-old woman who was mauled to death by her neighbor’s seven dachshunds.

On Thursday evening, Tracy Garcia was attacked by the dogs near her home.

Police were called to the scene and ended up shooting one of the dogs as it charged at them.

Garcia, a mother of two, was treated at the scene and then taken to the hospital where she later died.

The remaining dogs were rounded up and put down at the request of the owner. While the predominant breed of the dogs was dachshund, they were also mixed with terrier and border collie.

“A predominant breed in these dogs is definitely standard dachshund,” said an animal shelter employee. “They have really noticeable characteristics like their knobby legs, knees, very short legged dogs and their coats.”

All of the dogs were 1 to 3 years old, weighed less than 40 pounds and were covered by ticks and fleas.…

CONVERSE, TX – A 4-year-old boy was mauled to death by the family dog while playing in the backyard of his home.

According to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, Noah Trevino was playing alone in the backyard of his home Sunday afternoon when the dog attacked.

The dog, described as a “mixed large breed” was tied up at the time and it is believed the boy got too close to the animal while playing.

“It appears that the child may have gotten too close to the dog,” Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said. “One of the relatives of the child actually looked out into the backyard and saw that the dog had his mouth around the little boy’s neck and was shaking him.”

Family members were able to get the dog off of Noah and began administering CPR. Unfortunately, Noah was declared dead after being airlifted to the hospital. He had just celebrated his fourth birthday two weeks prior.

Bexar County Animal Control took the dog for an overnight observation and to be tested for rabies.…

JONESVILLE, VA — An 8-day-old baby in Virginia was mauled to death in its bassinet by the family’s wolf-dog hybrid.

On Wednesday morning, the parents of the infant girl heard her crying in her room. When they went in to investigate, they found the dog standing over her.

“The child, according to the statements, was in a bassinet. There was blood in the bassinet where the dog had attacked the child. (There were) very serious injuries to the upper body, and the head,” Lee County Sheriff Gary Parsons said.

The infant was rushed to the hospital by her father but would die later that afternoon. The 3-year-old wolf-dog hybrid was euthanized after being taken to the pound.

Social services have been called to check on two other children living in the home with two other dogs.

Parsons said he believes it is reckless to leave any child unattended with an animal, and is checking if any charges can be filed against the girls’ parents.

“I’m concerned about whether the child was protected, so the tough part for me is who is in the right and who is in the wrong, and you hate to charge parents that are grieving over a child, but at the same time you have to consider the rights of the child,” he said.…

BALTIMORE, MD — A man has was sentenced to three years in prison after being convicted of tying a cinder block to his girlfriend’s dog before tossing him into a reservoir.

In February of last year, a pit bull mix named Roscoe was found dead in the Liberty Reservoir tied to a cinder block. The dog had been microchipped, so investigators quickly identified the woman who owned the dog.

After talking with the woman, it was determined that her boyfriend, Anthony “Tony” Muniz, was responsible for the dog’s death and he was charged with aggravated animal cruelty.

According to prosecutors, Muiz stole the dog from his girlfriend and took it to a rescue group claiming that it was a stray, then re-adopted Roscoe as his own.

Of course, he had no intention of keeping the animal since he ended up tying a cinder block to the dog before chucking him into the water. Why would he do this? According to prosecutors, it was to send a message to his girlfriend.…
