Dog Killed For Chewing On Bible Cover

Dog Killed For Chewing On Bible - Devil animal? A dog was killed by a 65-year-old woman for chewing on a Bible with an electrical cord. The older woman hanged her nephew's pet after the incident.

Deputies said that Andy Fowler called them last Tuesday to report that his aunt had hung his dog. Fowler said his aunt, Miriam Smith, admitted hanging his 1-year-old pit bull, Diamond. Officers found the partially burned body of the animal under a pile of grass with an orange electrical cord around its neck at the home.

Dr. Dana Miller, vice president of animal cruelty initiatives for the Humane Society, performed a necropsy and verified that the dog died by hanging. Long-time neighbors said that Smith is a religious fanatic. "She wasn't right in the head," said John Worthy. "She read the Bible and interpreted in her own way. She's not a monster. She's good natured."

Smith is charged with animal cruelty. She is being held at the Spartanburg County Detention Center. The Detention Center website lists the specific violation as "animal torture."

Yeah, I read the bible too, and last I knew torturing animals was not in there.

"She's not a monster??" Nooooo, most nice, loving people strangle animals. :rolleyes2:

It's a whole new meaning to the term 'bible thumper'.
