Teenager Charged With Killing Dog In Washing Machine

Warning: This story may disturb readers.

A Pennsylvania 18-year-old has been accused of killing a terrier by putting him in a washing machine. She allegedly broke into an unoccupied home owned by a relative, and then put the dog in the washing machine. The water was turned off in the house, so the machine didn’t fill with water and the dog died of a broken neck.

The teenager has pleaded not guilty to charges of cruelty to animals and criminal trespass.

    This guy is well on his way to hurting people. They all start on animals. It would be great if he got some hefty jail time for this but I’m not holding my breath.

  2. Lynne says:

    I meant this girl… and why was the dog in an unoccupied home?

    This individual needs to be put away in an institution for the criminally insane.

    Speechless…Wait! I did think of something to say. That rotten, no good, hearth less, mean, LOON of a person should be put through the spin cycle!

    Wait - the dog was found in March, in an unoccupied home, after the owner came back to the home to move back in? Why was the dog left alone? This girl (and for some reason I am shocked it’s a girl that did this, and an 18 year old at that) BROKE into the home so she wasn’t in charge of dogsitting or anything.

    Regardless, stuff like this, which unfortunately happens all too often, needs to come with much stiffer punishment. Empty the jails of minor offences such as marijuana possession, and make room for the perps that really deserve to be in jail.

    The article doesn’t indicate *whose* dog it is/was nor does it give a reason for the girl to be a suspect. Odd.

  7. Anonymous says:

    Something about the whole story looks odd. It doesn’t state that she has been charged, only accused. Too many facts have been left out. Why would someone turn off the water but leave the power on if they didn’t live there? Where did the dog come from? Who was a witness to her carrying the dog inside the house? Something just doesn’t add up on this story.

    How can anyone do something like this to an animal; they are so hopeless. We should do the same to him. Lock him behind bars & throw away the key!

    Not that it matters, but it is a guy. Girls are recently beginning to abuse dogs and cats; this isn’t the story, though.
