Miriam Smith Killed Dog For Chewing On Bible: Nephew’s Pit Bull Hanged From Tree, Burned To Death

January 28th, 2011 by Staff


COLUMBIA, S.C. — 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. Authorities said bond wasn’t immediately set for Smith, who remains jailed in Spartanburg County after her weekend arrest.

Officials said she didn’t have an attorney yet.

She faces 180 days to five years in prison if convicted.

Authorities say the remains of the dog were found under a pile of grass with part of an electrical cord around its neck.

    If this lady can get 5 years in prison, then why isnt’ Michael Vick still in jail for all the horrible things he did. I don’t understand why that sick low life scumbag is able to go back to playing in the NFL and making millions after what he did. Tucker Carlson was right in saying that Vick should have been executed for what he did, we don’t need people like that in our society, yet he continues to be hero worshipped by ignorant morons they don’t care what he did to all those defenseless dogs. This country is a joke and it’s only going to get worse as the ignorance of Americans and foreigners grows stronger everyday.

    We need someone to take control and finally say no to all the things that are ruining this country.
