I post a lot about stories that involve animals because it boggles my mind as to how someone can be so inhumane as to hurt and even go so far as to torture an animal. And so we one Terrence J. Clark, who in late February elected to take his mother’s Shih Tzu from the back of his car, place the dog in a plastic bag, and throw the animal in the apartment trash compactor. It wasn’t just enough for him to ‘hit-the-button-and-run’. No, he had to hit the compactor button 4 TIMES! (All of which is caught on surveillance tape).
After residents had heard the dog yelping from the compactor, they called the Fire Department for rescue. They were able to remove the pet and rush it to a local Veterinarian’s office, but dies four days later.
These stories are difficult to digest because animals cannot defend themselves against the depravity of mankind. What could the dog possible have done? What could the mother have done to prompt this reaction from her son?
Clark is being held for charges of Aggravated Animal Cruelty with $65,000 bond.
