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.…

Henderson, NV —  A 1-year-old boy died on Saturday after being attacked by the family dog while celebrating his first birthday with family.

The unidentified boy was at his grandmother’s house with family when he crawled over to the family’s six-year old, 120-pound Mastiff/Rhodesian mix to pet it. According to the family, they have raised the dog since he was a puppy and he had never shown aggression towards anyone before.

But on this occasion the dog attacked the boy, latching his mouth around the little boy’s head and then shaking him like a chew toy. The boy’s grandmother immediately tried to pull the boy out of the dog’s mouth to no avail.

The boy’s father was upstairs when the attack occurred but was able to get the dog to let go within 20 seconds of the attack. But the damage to the boy was devastating.  “The baby’s face was torn off,” he said. The boy was rushed to the hospital but would die a few hours later.

Animal control officers took the dog to an animal shelter where he will be quarantined for ten days.…

Medway, UK – A UK woman was convicted of six counts of animal cruelty after her akita, Ruby, was found lying in the woman’s garden covered in maggots and feces in a severely weakened state.

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.…

Vero Beach, FL — A mother and daughter were sentenced to 60 days in jail after they trained their dogs to kill a 40-pound farm-raised pig in their back yard.

Back in March of last year, 21-year-old Ashley Ramirez posted a five minute video of dogs attacking a pig that appeared to have it’s mouth taped shut. In the video her mother, 56-year-old Janice Ramirez, can be seen telling the dogs to “Get him! Bite him!” as the pig squealed.

Investigators say the women told them they were training their dogs to pig hunt and that they cooked and ate the pig after the dogs killed it.

“It doesn’t even remotely begin to meet any type of criteria for sportsman-like behavior. This is not a practice that’s condoned. It’s not acceptable training methods for animals used in this type of sport, which would be hog hunting,” said Ilka Daniel of the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County.

Aside from their stint in jail, Janice and Ashley will also serve 30 months of probation and are expected to pay $1, 000 to the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County.…

Montana Man Jailed For Getting Dog Drunk

March 27, 2012 at 9:11 am by  

East Helena, MT – Todd Schrier, 49, was arrested earlier this month on charges of misdemeanor animal cruelty when police were called to a bar where two men had brought in a dog that was exhibiting clear signs of intoxication.

The dog, a 20-pound Pomeranian named Arly II, “was unable to walk in a straight line and continually fell over and lost balance,” according to a bar employee.  One can only hypothesize over the ultimate fate of Arly I.

Now, I’m man enough to admit that I’ve attempted to woo my fair share of drunken dogs at dive bars, but I can honestly state that I’ve never actually caused their intoxication directly, nor have I ever attempted sexual relations with an actual canine, no matter what my college room mates might tell you.

A man who claimed to be Arly II’s owner told police that Schrier had fed the dog “a to-go cup sized” amount of vodka.  Police, justifiably concerned over the dog’s well-being, took him to the vet where his blood alcohol level was measured at a staggering .348. …

Fort Worth, TX – Here’s a dog mauling story that has more white trash in it than my ex-wife’s family. Earlier this week, an 18-month-old boy crawled through a doggy door while his parents slept and was attacked by four mixed-breed boxers.

By the time Chance Walker Jr.’s mother was woken up by the commotion and stepped between her son and the dogs, Chance had already suffered some serious trauma to his face. Police released a 911 call made by a neighbor where you can hear Chance screaming in the background.

One neighbor described seeing Chase in his grandfather’s arms with one ear almost completely off, hanging by a piece of skin. The boy was rushed to the hospital to treat the numerous bite marks to his face and hopefully save his left ear. Once it is time for Chance to go home, it won’t be to his parents. A judge has decided that unless a suitable relative is found, he will be placed in a foster home. It’s probably for the best.…

Florida Hunter Shot After Dog Bumped Into Rifle

December 11, 2011 at 9:53 am by  

Pasco County, FL — A little over a week ago we posted a story about a dog who “accidentally” shot a duck hunter in the ass. Now we have this story out of Florida in which a man riding in a truck with a dog was shot after the excited canine bumped into a loaded gun.

Reports say 78-year-old Billy E. Brown and his hunting partner of 25 years were driving down a bumpy road one-and-a-half miles into the woods when a bulldog named Eli got excited and bumped into a loaded Browning 308. The gun fired and Brown was shot in the right thigh.

Brown was rushed to the hospital where he underwent surgery. As of Saturday he was in critical but stable condition.

I’m starting to suspect that these stories have less to do with careless gun owners and their loaded firearms and more to do with dogs becoming aware of the negative press they receive when they maul someone to death. They’ve simply switched tactics.

Since things always seem to happen in threes, let’s wait and see if  a similar story comes out in the near future that lends my theory any credence.…

Dog Shoots Hunter In The Ass With Shotgun

December 1, 2011 at 9:52 am by  

BOX ELDER COUNTY, Utah — A hunter in Utah is lucky to be alive after a dog accidentally shot him with a shotgun, leaving the hunter with an assful of birdshot.

Police say 46-year-old Robert Cottingham was duck hunting Sunday with his son and brother-in-law when the accident happened. While Cottingham retrieved a duck from the water, an excited Labrador named Piper jumped into the boat they were using and hit a shotgun that had been left laying in the boat.

Piper hit the loaded shotgun in such a way that it fired, hitting Cottingham in the lower back and buttocks from a distance of about 6-feet. A medical helicopter was dispatched but later recalled after medics treated Cottingham at the scene, and then took him to the hospital where 27 birdshot pellets were removed from his ass.

Cottingham is expected to make a full recovery, even though several pellets could not be removed, and says things could have turned out a lot worse. Turns out a duck decoy absorbed a substantial amount of the blast and probably saved his life.…

Man Accused Of Performing Oral Sex On Female Dog

November 14, 2011 at 8:06 am by  

Pueblo, CO – Pueblo police officer Matthew Ballard said that officers were called to a woman’s home on a report that an unidentified man was “performing oral sexual acts on the woman’s dog.”

According to the arrest report, the man then began “pleasuring himself” in front of the female dog. The man was gone by the time police arrived, but they were able to find him in the bathroom of a nearby bar.

Kenneth Milosavich, 55, was reported to be in possession of a small amount of crack cocaine, a pipe in his pocket, and – hopefully – a freshly used toothbrush and some breath mints. According to the arrest report, during the interaction with Milosavich, he tried to blow the cocaine out of an officer’s hand.

Milosavich was arrested on charges of animal cruelty, indecent exposure, possession of crack cocaine, possession of drug paraphenialia, and tampering. Milosavich is being held in Pueblo County jail without bail.…

Starving Dog Jumps From Third Story Window

October 5, 2011 at 4:33 pm by  

NEW BEDFORD, Mass., — Before you continue reading I suggest you get the full effect of the article’s contents by playing this in the background. Ok, ready?

The other day, an emaciated one-year-old female dog jumped from a third story window in an effort to save herself from starving to death.

The pit bull mix broke her hip and hind leg upon landing and more than likely would have died had had a cop not witnessed the dog’s three-story plunge. Animal control officials were called and immediately began treating her.

Officials would also find a four-month-old puppy starving to death on the first floor of the flea-infested apartment. The property manager told police the tenant had moved out a couple month’s ago and did not have their contact information.

The female, named Miracle, underwent surgery on Monday and will be placed into the custody of Forever Paws Animal Shelter once she recovers. The puppy, Gracie, was in a lot worse shape but is alive and recovering in the shelter’s ICU.…

Louisville, KY – Prosecutors have filed animal cruelty charges against former Sheriff’s Deputy Randy Taylor and former highway worker Adam Decker.

Why are they former everything, you ask?

Investigators say that a dog, named “Chance”, had been hit by a car but did not die in the accident.

When Taylor and Decker found Chance, they decided to help her by beating her over the head with a garden hoe.

Afterwards, the pair buried Chance in a shallow grave by the side of the road.

The two men probably would have never gotten into any trouble for their DIY euthanasia had Chance decided not to die.

Despite being in a car accident and having her head tilled, Chance was still alive and proceeded to dig her way out of her grave.

She was reportedly discovered alive by a different highway worker a few days later who opted not to continue caving in her skull.

Ohio County Sheriff David Thompson fired Taylor – a five year veteran – after a two-week internal investigation.  …

Ireland — I learned a couple things over the weekend. One is that I am addicted to Cartoon Network’s ADVENTURE TIME and two, people can have allergic reactions to dog sperm and then die.

Sean McDonnell, 57, is currently on trial after meeting a 43-year-old, adventurous mother of four in a bestiality chat room. The two begin talking and then agreed the woman should try some of his Alsatian’s lipstick.

So back in October of 2008, the pair met and the woman had sex with McDonnell’s dog. Immediately following her rendezvous, she became so sick she had to be rushed to the hospital. I have no idea what she told them, but she died later that same evening.

An autopsy would later determine the woman died of anaphylaxis. I did a bit of research into this, adding even more Google search terms for a future prosecutor to have a field day with, and learned that just as a small percentage of people are allergic to animal dander, some are allergic to their secretions to the point of it being deadly.…
