Evil beyond belief

From CNN:

After Crystal Brown's 4-year-old Australian shepherd mix, Chevy, wandered away last month, she put up "missing" posters in her neighborhood and went door to door looking for him. She called the St. Paul animal shelter and rode the bus there several times.

"I felt empty," Crystal told the Star Tribune of Minneapolis. "I couldn't talk to anyone. He was my dog. It was just me and him. ... I told him everything and he never shared any of my secrets."

Two weeks ago, a gift-wrapped box was left at the house Crystal shares with her grandmother. The box had batteries on top, and a note that said "Congratulations Crystal. This side up. Batteries included."

Crystal opened the box and found her dog's head inside. The box also contained Valentine's Day candy.

Crystal screamed when she saw her dog's face.

"She was just hysterical," said Crystal's grandmother, Shirley Brown. "She was screaming. She said, 'Grandma, it's my dog's head!'

How could anyone be so cruel?

UPDATE:  The Enquirer reports on some similar evils out in St. Clair Township.  What the hell is wrong with people?


I have not a clue what is wrong with people. I have four dogs, including an Aussie, and keep them close and on lead at all times for reasons like these.

Individuals responsible for crimes such as this should face the same fate as those who murder people. After all, someone who is capable of harming a pet in this manner is certainly capable of murdering innocent human beings.
