Poor thing

A Dutch couple were arrested the other day for violently killing their dog. The poor unsuspecting animal followed its owners into the park for its daily walk and never returned. Passers-by found the dog’s bloody body in a rubbish bin. Police were called and the vet who carried out the autopsy declared the dog’s head had been repeatedly hit with a hammer. The couple were called in for questioning by the police and admitted to the crime. When asked why they did this, they replied the dog shed too much fur. The dog was a Beagle. The couple were not prosecuted.

How grotesque

I can't believe this. Haven't they heard of taking the dog to an animal shelter to be adopted. They deserve to be prosecuted and pay a very, very large fine.

Such a contrast with tnchick who runs Photo Hunt. Her beagle went missing recently and she and her husband spent 6 days looking for Zoey who was eventually found, thanks to a petfinder service, called findtoto.com who were amazingly successful.

Evil it's the only word I can describe them as - I don't know how they can sleep at night.

WHY were they not prosecuted? Isn't this a crime??
It breaks my heart about this poor Beagle.

In San Francisco they would have gone to jail.
