We seem to be seeing more and more of these horrific crimes, kids killing animals for no reason other then just to kill an animal. What is wrong with these kids?? Has life so little meaning that they believe they can wantonly take it without any percussions? And what’s next?

Recently I’ve done at least three stories of teens killing or attempting to kill dogs for no good reason, not that there really ever is a good reason for kids to do something like this.

And now this story from Greenwood, Mississippi where three teens were arrested for beating a 10 month old pit bull puppy to death.

The owner of the 10-month-old dog, Charles Hood, 37, described the act as “cold-blooded.”

The dog didn’t have a mean bone in his body, he said. “They beat his old head in.”

Witnesses said they saw the children walking the dog from its home at Alexander Trailer Park on Highway 49 South toward Rising Sun on Sunday.

Hood called the sheriff’s department Monday. Witnesses then helped located the juveniles, who confessed to the crime to law enforcement officials and showed a deputy where the dog’s body was, Banks said.

“I know they’re kids, but at that age, if they’re going to do something like that, what are they going to do later?” Hood said.

Hood said he had approximately $1,300 in veterinarian bills invested in his pet.

Hood said the dog had been let outside to use the bathroom and was on a chain when he was taken.

Like Hood said, “What are they going to do later?” If you want to know what can happen later read The Abuse Connection – Animal Cruelty and Interpersonal Violence It will open your eyes to the reality of violence against animals…. it doesn’t just stop there!
