This week’s second report focusing on dogs and crime doesn’t have anything to do with human-on-pooch sexual activity, but unfortunately it’s even more tragic. In fact, if the former story sounds like something out of a raunchy Jack Black comedy or Set Rogen’s latest exercise in moron-ity, this next one comes straight out of a Horror movie. The little devil on my shoulder wants me to make some gallows-humor comment about the “A dingo ate my baby!” woman, to lighten the mood, but I will refrain. Honestly this case is just too awful for even gallows humor.
A man is facing murder charges after his pack of “pet” pitbulls killed and partially consumed a 4-year-old Detroit boy last week. The little boy was walking down the street with his mother when the dogs attacked them. They dragged the child away from his mother and under a fence, where she was then forced to watch as they tore her son to pieces. Reports state that the dogs had been known to attack people in the neighborhood before, which makes me wonder why something hadn’t been done about them already. I’m against doing harm to an animal under almost every circumstance, but these beasts should have been put down a long time ago. Now it’s too late.
