Miriam Smith, a woman from South Carolina, discovered that her nephew’s Pit-Bull had been gnawing on her Bible. As this wasn’t the way she wanted her family to Feed on the Word or Digest the Scriptures she did what all sane people would do. She hung him from a tree with electrical cord and then burned the dead dog’s carcass before hiding it under a grass pile.
She told the authorities that due to its very unchristian-like behavior it was a “devil dog’ and worried that it would harm the neighborhood children. The authorities seemed more concerned about Mrs. Smith’s behavior and arrested her. She faces 6 months to five years in prison if she is convicted of animal cruelty. At least she will have some quality time to study her Bible.
