Make her buy him 2 piglets and give the little piggies an order of protection.
Play a prank?
What kind of prank is killing an animal?
Guess what’s for Thanksgiving dinner this year!
FIFTY YEARS?! Fifty days maybe
She probably already did.
Insane. 50 years of imprisonment for killing a PIG?
Right, if she’d aborted a baby, she’s make $300 to $500. Decapitate a pig? 50 years. That makes sense, doesn’t it? May God have mercy on us!
You are right. She could abort a child with no consequences at all.
Short-sheeting the bed is a prank.
Decapitating the piglet your boyfriend raised as therapy after suffering a head injury is vicious evil depraved rubber-room bitch from hell.
Seems a little extreme. It wasn’t her pig, thats the thing I guess. There are murderers of people who get less time than that!
If she had beheaded someone in the name of ‘Allah’ (wizz be upon him)...she would’ve gotten a lesser sentence.
And yeah, 50 years is a long time. But I doubt she’ll get anywhere near that.
I could go about 3 to 5 years of busting rocks, though.
Hell hath no fury,
Like a woman scorned,
Now they will hurry,
While the piglets mourned,
To jail his slayer,
Ashley of the knife,
Without a prayer,
She took Porkys life,
Now she will do time,
In a prison cell,
She has done the crime,
We dont wish her well.
Okay, now this is my contribution - This sounds like a scene straight from HAM - let.
50 years seems like a lot. OTOH, it seems like a pretty sick thing to do if it was a pet. If she’d decapitated a puppy or a kitten as a “prank”, I’d want her locked up long enough for a psych exam. That’s the kind of thing a sociopath might do for entertainment.
Do I dare to be the first person to do this?
Okay, if I must.
>> beheading her boyfriends piglet
Is that what they’re calling it now? “Piglet”?
What happened to “johnson”? Am I that old?
When I was growing up on a farm in Iowa, the standard rule concerning edible livestock was that any critter that has a name is safe from becoming Sunday dinner.
My sister and I had a pet turkey named Tom (how original...hey, we were kids) that we raised from a chick and he was imprinted with the image of us being his mom.
He followed us around constantly like a spare shadow and always came out to meet us, getting off the school bus each afternoon. Hed come out and fan out his feathers and strut around a bit. It was his main, possibly only, talent.
In early November, word leaked out to us that he was going to be the main course for Thanksgiving dinner. The old rule had been over-ridden and Tom was about to be axed literally.
Come the day before Thanksgiving, we all dreaded what was about to happen and nobody would volunteer to be his executioner. Just thinking about it spread through the family to where we were all nearly in tears.
We couldnt bear to kill Tom for dinner, so we ate the dog.
I am thinking not. VA law limits your liability for “pets” - dogs, cats, pigs - to their fair-market value at the butcher.
50 years for killing a hog? No way.
Now, for being a psycho, and the drug charges, that I can believe.
LOL! Snort. Cough.
It is not a prank, it is called food preparation.
She should have just told the cops her boyfriend stole her X-Box.
Then they would have come and shot the piglet with 20 rounds for free.
Hook, line and sinker.
I bet there is way more to this story.
I bet there is way more to this story.
Psycho woman from hell.
I use a firearm for pigs. I really do.
...so we ate the dog....

Someone was sure thinking fast.
Like the 3 legged pig running around the farm.
When questioned the story came out that the farmer had overturned his tractor in the mud and the pig had somehow dug around his face and saved him.
“Oh”, I said, “did he lose his leg in the accident”?
“Hell NO!”, replied the farmer, “You don’t think we could eat a good old boy like that all at one time do you?”
It is becoming clearly apparent that this society is turning into a complete bunch of wimps and fools. Almost everyone eats chicken, pork, beef, fish, and other meats that they obviously think were manufactured in a plant somewhere. Gosh we have come a long way in such a short time since we used to be hunters and gatherers. I think everyone should be forced to live one year on a farm and see first hand that animals are sustinence, food for humans, beasts of burden, etc....Geeze they are being given the same status as humans now. We slaughtered, yes I used the term intentionally, slaughtered our farm animals for food. Good God, I would be given the death penalty these days for all the animals I slaughtered, butchered, cured, packaged, and ate. So this pig was someone’s pet, fair enough, charge them with destroying someone else’s property, a misdemeanor, fine them fair market value for the porkster, and be done with it. It’s absurd. What is next? PETA gonna start fining me for every ant I step on and kill in the course of a day. They’re freaking animals!
You are aware that serial killers usually start with animals, yes?
Aw, get real. I love animals as much as the next guy, but come on. We bloody slaughter and eat pigs!
And yes, I do think this is unconstitutional.
*shrug* We shoulda named the dog...
Oh my god! Here we go! You gotta be $hittin me to associate this story with serial killers. And most liberals start out being taught in public schools that we must eat our peas because the President says so.
It is widely known and widely common that breakups of couples put children and pets at risk of being hurt or killed.
One side wants the other to suffer pain of loss, and they attack something the other one loves.
It isn’t rocket science, it happens all the time. Everyone who has pets or kids needs to realize their pet could become a target of abuse or death from the other side losing it and trying to get revenge on them.
And for those of you who can’t not bring abortion into any sentence ruling you think is overblown and somehow make the issue about abortion, OF COURSE SHE WON’T GET 50 years. They jacked it up so high that it will be reduced down greatly, but that she will get something.
Animal abuse cases are almost never given any major length of time. Often they are reduced to misdemeanors or probation sentences, they are pitiful what people actually end up with.
They put “up to 50 years” so that hopefully she may get 6 months.
If anything you’d think abortion folks would have more sympathy for animal abuse caes because yo’re talking about (albeit non humans) but those most dependent on their masters for everything, and they are turned into pawns in order to cause incredible pain to someone else. Talk about wicked and just evil, it’s along the same kind of evil that allows people to be so evil as to wipe out their own child.
He didn’t have a pet rabbit. He dodged a bullet by not marrying this one!
50 years is way too much but it isn’t just about killing the animal. It was meant as a terroristic threat.
The reporter should get 50 years for poor writing.
You never sausage Hormel sight! Won’t anyone think of the chitlins?
“Decapitating the piglet your boyfriend raised as therapy after suffering a head injury is vicious evil depraved rubber-room bitch from hell.”
Nah, rubber room bitch describes the woman wh does ths the serves the guy pork chops.
I wonder if the DA had a BLT for lunch? Pigs are killed every day in the US.
“You are aware that serial killers usually start with animals, yes?”
You are aware of the danger in posing a correlation argument, yes?
Do remember that virtually ALL serial killers have a milk use history.
When the AAA got started in the New Deal, the idea was to raise the prices farmers received by reducing the supply--so farmers were paid to destroy crops already growing and to kill piglets. There was a huge outcry at the slaughter of the piglets. Secretary of Agriculture Henry Wallace commented that from the outcry, you'd have thought the piglets were being raised as pets.
I hate people who take their personal crap out on animals. I hate them every bit as much as I hate child molesters. Every bit as much. Anyone who goes after a helpless victim... if I had my way, they’d vanish in a flash of burning light. There’d be an agonized scream and then a pile of ashes.
“Fowler also plead guilty to charges of possessing Adderall and breaking and entering.”
Okay, this woman is a psycho-wench and probably a speed freak. It doesn’t surprise me she’d do something like this. Nor does it surprise me that killing something fit in with her idea of a prank.
I see your point, but she definitely needs a psych eval.
Is the puppy owned by Jack Sawyer's mother or by Ashley Fowler? Who was "freaked out," the mother or Fowler? What does the puppy, the time of day, or being "freaked out" have to do with the story? Does "it" refer to the puppy or the piglet's head?
The Sawyers had to euthanize another pig who Fowler admitted to stabbing in the same incident.
I see why the author's name is not provided. I bet that the "play a prank" line is the author's creation, not a quote. The author probably believes that beheading a pig is just a prank.
Yu two cann be a jernalust and make bigg munnie!
