    WV - Man Kills Dog with pickaxe because of its Name

    A man has been charged with killing his family's dog with two pickaxes because its name Felony reminded him he had recently been charged with a felony. Kenneth James Watkins, 22, was charged Wednesday with a felony count of animal cruelty for killing the 11-year-old black and white border collie on Tuesday.


    Watkins told his family and a neighbor what he had done, said Berkeley County Sheriffs Deputy Terry S. Shetley. An aunt kicked Watkins out of the house and called police. Watkins' brother showed deputies a sign over the dog's fresh grave in the yard that said, "Don't Kill No More Dogs."

    Watkins is being held in the Eastern Regional Jail on $20,000 bond.

    WTH?!?!
    The dog (and its name) came before his felony charge!!! Why cant they just say someone cant control themselves and took their anger out on an animal??

    Ive always thought you can tell alot about someone by how they treat animals........this guy is scum,imo,and the poster boy for why animal cruelty charges need stiffer penalties!!
    The saints are the sinners who keep trying...
