Tales of the Chromosome Challenged

Woman hanged nephew's 'devil dog' from tree before burning it after it chewed her Bible

A US woman has been charged with animal cruelty after allegedly hanging her nephew's pit bull from a tree with an electrical cord and burning its body after it chewed on her Bible.

"Devil Dog" Executioner
Animal control officers said 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 neighbourhood children.

Smith's nephew left the one-year-old animal at the home he shared with his aunt during the recent winter weather while he went away.

When he returned, he could find no trace of the dog and assumed she had broken the chain where she was usually tied at the front porch of the house.

An environmental enforcement officer came across the dog's body under a mound of dried grass, stinking of kerosene.

The dog had an orange extension cord wrapped tightly around its neck and its body was partially burned.

Authorities said bail was not immediately set for Smith, who remains jailed in Spartanburg County, South Carolina after her weekend arrest.
I guess it's fortunate that no one left a baby with Aunt Miriam who may have teethed on a Crucifix!

Aunt Miriam clearly expects a dog to understand the difference between a slipper and the Bible; an expectation so unreasonable that one could only assume that she is (please excuse the clinical language) batshit crazy. At least Michael Vick tortured and killed dogs for some bizarre semblance of "reason", though sick and perverted as it was, like "they didn't fight up to expectation". It would appear that this woman, a walking, breathing affliction, not only to Christianity, but to religious faith as a whole, tortured and killed a dog because it couldn't friggin' read.

Alas, Michael Vick is back in the NFL making millions, while this crazy old bat "faces 180 days to five years in prison if convicted."

It's a sad comment on humanity.
