This blog is constantly bemoaning the fact that bad animals never get what's coming to them, that people make excuses and even enable them. But once in a while that's not the case - and once in a great while, people even deem a crime worthy of the death penalty. But this is what it takes:
RUMANN, Ark. (CBS Atlanta) – A paralyzed Arkansas man awoke to find blood on the muzzle of his dog and a “burning pain” in his mid-section, and according to the police report: “the dog had eaten one of his testicles.”
The 39-year-old Trumann, Ark. man, who is paralyzed from the waist down, had recently adopted the “small, white, fluffy” stray dog in hopes of having a loving companion, reports KAIT8.com. The man said the newly-adopted animal bit off one of his testicles while he was sleeping naked around 7:45 a.m. on Monday.
The man, who has not been identified, was taken to St. Bernard’s Regional Hospital for treatment to his injuries.
The dog, however, was euthanized and had the remains tested for rabies by a local veterinarian.
That small white fluffy dog with sharp teeth photographed by Flickr user riebschlager is not the dog in question. That dog could be perfectly harmless. But don't count on it.
