When Ohio firefighter David Santuomo, 43, wanted to go on vacation with his girlfriend, he dragged his two dogs down to the basement and blasted away at them with his rifle. One of his dogs was shot seven times in the head. Santuomo didn't want the hassle of putting the dogs up at a kennel or with one of his neighbors who had offered to watch them for free.
To top it all off, he lied to his ex-wife and children about what happened to the dogs. (Though telling them that dad executed the dogs in the basement might not have gone over so well.)
I'm pretty sure guys who hurt/kill animals aren't too many notches above child molesters in the hierarchy of prison life. He deserves every beatdown he's going to get.
In case you can't tell, I'm not a big fan of people who hurt animals.
