We ask why do things like this happen? In Georgia, three teens are accused of burning a dog alive. A woman saw flames in her backyard and hosed it down until the fire department came. Not until the flames were all gone did she realize that it was a dog that was on fire and that it was still alive. Rescue workers tried to save the dog, but the dog died shortly after the fire. Three boys were charged with felony aggravated cruelty to animals.
