Sheriff: George County [MS] man set dog on fire
Sun Herald ^ | May 23, 2013 | Justin Mitchell

Posted on 05/23/2013 11:26:42 AM PDT by WXRGina

Deputies with the George County Sheriff's Office have arrested a man accused of setting his dog on fire, Sheriff Dean Howell said.

Brandon Pierce, 20, was arrested Tuesday on an animal cruelty charge after officers found his dog doused with a flammable liquid and burning.

Pierce said he "wanted to help the dog go to heaven" and he was acting erratically, Howell said.

The dog survived the burning and was transported to the George County Animal Hospital. Animal hospital officials say the dog may lose eyesight due to the burns and could possibly lose a front leg. The tip of its nose was also burned off.

“The dog or the owner?”

The dog. The owner needs a bullet behind the left ear lobe.

He has crazy eyes.

They are not looking in the same direction. He's "wall-eyed" rather than cross-eyed (looking in toward his nose).

An eye for an eye,. There is NO EXCUSE to do this to an animal of any kind, two-legged or four-legged. The Bestid needs a dose of his own medicine.

To hell with “Diminished Mental Capacity.”

No excuse.

Only if we tell the other inmates he’s a child molester and he shares a cell with a big guy named “Bubba”.

Otherwise I’d give him a dose of the same medicine

If this dog had been a pitbull breed, there would be not a small number of FReepers openly cheering him.

Actually, he does look very loopy, completely out to lunch. Never mind the comments he made.

He needs to be institutionalized. Oh wait, we don’t do that anymore, since that would be mean.

I don’t care what breed a dog (or cat, or other animal) is: The fact that Mankind is a Steward of the Earth and all its inhabitants, should be enough to bitch-slap this guy into the next Universe.

How dare he think he is beyond reproach? Good thing I don’t live where he does....

Me, too, Onyx. He’s bound to do some time as it is. At least the drugs will get out of his system, because I have no doubt he’s likely on speed or something to become so deranged.

After I posted this yesterday, the poor dog died of his injuries, so this story has an update that was carried in today’s paper.

Poor dog. The legal consequences of being cruel to an animal are not nearly strong enough. In this case, and eye for an eye seems fair.

So am I. Is there any way to find out if the poor little thing made it, and if there’s anywhere to donate for it?

Thank you. Poor little thing. I could murder that man with my own hands. I love dogs above all other creatures (barring humans of course), have 5 of my own. I would have taken him. I hope they were able to ease his suffering. He’s in the shelter of God’s hand now, and no evil human can ever hurt him or make him unhappy for eternity.
