When police were alerted to an unattended fire in the courtyard of a home in Northampton Township, Pennsylvania, they certainly didn’t expect to find what they did: a man apparently shot his dog in the eye and then cooked the corpse of an animal at the stake. reportedly used $ 100 bills as a kindling.
In accordance with MailOnlinewhen the officers arrived, the man was “intoxicated” and sat on the couch, unable to speak. His roommate apparently told the police that she had previously heard shots from his room. Bullet holes in the bedroom, “blood and baked” in the hallway, and a gun found at the scene seemed to confirm the roommate’s report.
In accordance with The Philadelphia InquirerThe dog was an 8-year-old greyhound named Bonanza, whom the man adopted in 2019. Bonanza was reportedly rescued from The Macau Canidrome Club in China, a now defunct racetrack that closed in 2018.
Only in Asia #greyhound the racetrack, Macau Canidrome, is closing.
Please convince #Macau Officials should transfer custody of all dogs to local animal protection groups so that they can be adopted in loving homes.

The Northampton Township Police Department accused Bonanza’s alleged killer of aggravated animal cruelty, the use of firearms in an occupied building, possession of weapons of crime, cruelty to animals, and recklessly endangering another. Prosecutors appear to have granted the $ 1 million bail petition and the defendant is reportedly still in police custody. PETA asks authorities for protection everything members of the community by throwing a book at a man if he is found guilty, including giving him the maximum length of imprisonment, and prohibiting him from owning or living with animals as long as possible.
What if this dog was a pig?
The act is disgusting, and the details will probably turn your stomach upside down – but if this dog were a chicken, would Bonanza’s master be accused of animal cruelty? Of course not. If it was fish that was grilled, would this incident make the headlines? Definitely not. And if this dog were a pig – an animal that shares many traits with “man’s best friend” – would you think about it twice?
So if you don’t eat one, why eat the other? This is due arrogance… Most people are accustomed to viewing some species as worthy of care and compassion and others as less important or unworthy. As with other forms of prejudice, we are trained to accept this toxic way of thinking – it is ingrained in us. This forces us to ignore our own conscience, which tells us to mistreat all other beings. But fighting arrogance and recognizing the rights of other animals is as easy as respecting their needs or leaving them alone. Taking this everything animals deserve to be left out – this is a great place to start.
Dog, pig or human – no animal is good for grilling.
