Here’s a disgusting story. A woman in South Carolina killed a dog — hanged him and set him on fire — because he chewed on her Bible, which proved, in her addled mind, that it was a “devil dog” and must be destroyed. The Huffington Post reports:
Authorities have charged a South Carolina woman with felony animal cruelty, saying she hanged her nephew’s pit bull from a tree with an electrical cord and burned its body because the dog chewed on her Bible.
Animal control officers said Monday that 65-year-old Miriam Smith told them she killed a female dog named Diamond because it was a “devil dog” and she worried it could harm neighborhood children.
