Quick Trips To Hell – Canine Edition!
Baby – It’s what’s for dinner
In May of 2007, Kristi Willis was warned about her dog, an 80-pound pit bull named Swisher. It had finally bitten one of her neighbors, and was known to be a rather aggressive beast.
That’s why these idiots keep these dogs, of course.
Pit bulls are “badass” and make people feel tough when they own them. Nevermind that these animals can very easily bite and kill your own kids, it’s important that mommy or daddy feels that he or she has an unstoppable force of nature on a short leash.
Well, as you can imagine, Swisher eventually got out again, this time on Wednesday, the fifth of September.
Swisher got out just as 32-year-old Angela Silva and her 4-month-old baby were entering their garage to clean out the family car.
While Angela Silva was holding little Tom Jr., Swisher walked into their garage, saw the vulnerable mother and her delicious baby, and went after them.
After the first lunge, Angela put Tom Jr. into an empty plastic trash can, to protect him from the pit bull. She shut the lid and tried to keep the dog away from her baby, which proved exceedingly difficult once the ghetto hound managed to knock over the trash can.
Still, her determined efforts to keep the vicious pit bull’s jaws away from her infant son proved successful. Two men who were across the street heard her screams and chased Swisher away with power tools.
Angela Silva was rushed to the hospital, where doctors put 50 staples into her arms along with a few hundred stitches. Due to his mother’s heroism, Tom Jr. was barely scratched.
After the attack, the dog disappeared. Kristi Willis initially said that it ran away, but turned the dog in on the 6th of September.
Kristi Willis and Charles Shelby were arrested the same day Swisher was euthanized; the 18th of September, 2007.
That day was a Thursday.
I’ve always liked Thursdays.
They’ve been charged with failing to protect the public from a known dangerous animal and conspiracy, for hiding the dog from authorities
possible charges of hiding evidence, because Swisher seems to have vanished and the authorities believe she arranged to have the dog taken in with a friend until this all blows over.
You no buy? You go now!
44-year-old former dog owner and future prison inmate John Delmar Fladger, had had enough of the high price of dog food and walked his dog, a german shepherd mix named “Lil’ Mama,” into a local convenience store.
The dog, loyal through his pain, followed his master into the convenience store despite showing recent burns, which caused one or two onlookers to express their concern about the dog’s well-being.
Mr. Fladger silenced the queries with a stern, “I’m trying to kill him,” whipped out a can of gasoline and poured it all over his dog.
Actual, paying customers stared wide-eyed at his actions and the sensible ones backed away as far as they could.
Later, John Fladger attempted to impress local schoolkids by dousing the dog with gasoline and lighting him on fire while walking.
After authorities arrived and arrested Mr. Fladger, and were finally able to take “Lil’ Mama” to the local Humane Society for treatment, the veterinarians working there took one look at the poor burned creature and did the only thing they could – they euthanized it.
While John Fladger was being arrested he insisted that he wasn’t the one that burned the dog.
At his trial, however, John Fladger pled guilty to charges of animal torture and killing an animal.
He faced a possible four years in prison.
John Fladger’s judge, The Honorable David Groner, sentenced Fladger on the 13th of September, 2007 to 23 months to 4 years in prison.
