Man arrested for dragging puppy until she bled

Chicago, IL - A 42-year-old man has been arrested on animal cruelty charges after trying to "teach" his Pit bull puppy how to walk.

The man, Stanton Howard of Humbodlt Park, attempted to "teach" the 11-week-old puppy how to walk by dragging her along the pavement to the point that she was leaving a bloody trail.

According to the Chicago Tribune, authorities were alerted to the situation by concerned neighbors who discovered the blood trail leading to Howard's residence.

When the authorities questioned Howard, he admitted that (and I quote),

“This is how you teach a dog to walk,’’

The young puppy was found to be suffering from severe scrapes and abrasions on her stomach from the sadistic "training" session.

You seem to be promoting Piggy Eims at examiner quite a lot.

Is that perchance your own personal blog? Are you looking for some hits?

Examiner is well known as a virus-laden cesspool.
Never will you find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

Hopefully the pups will be re-homed to good owners soon.

In some conservative place outside of Chicago.

I’ve noticed that this poster is posting a lot of animal violence posts. While I’m not for any cruelty towards animals I am also not a fan of PETA or animal rights BS.

Animals are not people but some people are animals.

You're giving animals a bad name.

Fact is, when it comes to sadistic senseless viciousness, people are worse than animals.

It sounds like we come from the same position—both of us are opposed to animal violence, but neither of us believe animals are equivalent to people.

I would add that those who treat animals cruelly are more likely to do the same to people.

Tell that to my rancher/neighbor/friend who just recovered the carcass of a calf gutted and partially eaten while being birthed. Mountain lion.
Tell that to the ranchers that recovered dead elk with their pregnant uterus torn out by wolves.
Or the neighbors cat dropping baby birds out of their nest in the pine tree between our houses.

Did the cat rape your wife? The ranchers wife?

Did the cat rob him at gun point, take everything he had, and then blew his brains out?

Did the cat walk into your town and mass murder a group of people just because the cat had a bad day?

Did the cat foreclose on the home your neighbors had for the past 18 years, because a neighbor's wife might have gotten ill and couldn't pay the mortgage?

Did the cat swindle you or your neighbors out of their life savings?

No?

Hopefully, you get the point.

Where does the term “beastly” come from?

I would guess it came from the woman who stuffed her child in the microwave and flipped the switch, or the guy that killed 37 people in Virginia for no good reason...(He wasn't even hungry, and didn't bother eating them) or maybe it came from those people who beat to death and stab some homeless guy...Maybe it came from some dictator, who decided to control his people to the point, where if they failed to fall in line, he simply slaughtered millions of them. Or maybe it was from some Muslim who decided to kill his kids because they watched TV or wore the wrong clothes.

You obviously don't get it.

Take care.

“Beastly” describes people who act like animals.

Next time you need a fireman, doctor, nurse, EMT, 911....call your cat.

That has absolutely nothing to do with what I was attempting to explain to you.

Using your twisted analogy, next time the cat murders and rapes your wife, drives drunk wiping out entire families, or lights your home on fire simple to watch it burn, call a fireman, doctor, nurse, EMT, 911.

Good grief!

You clearly are not capable of understanding what is being explained to you.

Animals do it because of instinct, man does it with thought.

Not quite true. there are numerous accounts of animals going “rouge” like the two lions in the village Tsavo (sp?). The ones depicted in the movie “The Ghost and the Darkness”.

Those two lions were hunting people for sport or thrill and were not eating some of their victims. They were killing just to kill.

Elephants do this as do other large animals.

Not saying they do it with as frequent a nature as humans but they do it none the less.

On the question of which I trust more, humans or animals? Neither.

Those who place animals above humans are just mental in my opinion.

Animals do not have reason, only men do.

That doesn't mean that animals cannot kill for pleasure or cannot be clever.
