James MillsThis 71-year-old Medina County, OH man, James Mills, is definitely not your kindly grandfatherly type!  While Mills was at his son’s home splitting word, his son and son’s girlfriend were out, Mills grabbed a metal pipe and went into the kennel of his son’s girlfriend’s 9-year-old rottweiler mix and brutally beat the dog to death.  He said he was tired of hearing the dog barking.

Deputies report that the dog was not vicious or aggressive in any way.  Mills just entered Penny’s kennel, initially he says, to give the dog water, but tired of hearing the dog bark for two days, he took a metal pipe and hit her 3 or 4 times.  By the time his son and girlfriend returned, Penny was dead.

Mills has plead no guilty to animal cruelty charges and faces up to six months in jail and/or a thousand dollar fine is convicted.

Now, I think most of us have experienced incessant dog barking.  Sure, it can get annoying but you don’t beat a dog to death over it.  Obviously all the dog wanted was attention! Would it have been so hard to him to just give Penny some attention and not at the end of a metal pipe!  You can imagine that Penny was probably all excited to see him come over and open the kennel.  She probably thought she was going to have some fun, get a little TLC and what does she receive instead??  A metal pipe bashed over her head 3 or 4 times then left to suffer and die, alone and in pain.

This is a guy that needs some serious help! I hope there are no grandchildren around, what would a child’s crying fit bring out in him??

Check out the news report.  You gotta appreciate this reporter’s take on this.  A little sarcasm to go with the story, well deserved if I may add.
