TWO DOGS BURNED ALIVE IN FIRE PIT BY DRUNK TEXANS

      KY

A Wood County Sheriff’s deputy responded to an animal call on County Road 2174 just outside of Quitman in the Clear Lakes area Monday. Upon arrival, Deputy J.W. Williams discovered a hole in the ground and inside the hole were the metal bands from numerous burned tires and the burned carcass of a medium sized dog.

According to a press release from the sheriff’s department, witnesses advised that on Sunday the suspect, 28-year-old Larry Lowery, of Point, had thrown a dog into a fire. Lowery was confronted about burning the dog and he (Lowery) apologized but then later threw a second dog into the fire. Witnesses said Lowery was bragging about the dogs and stated that the second dog did not die. Witnesses told police that Lowery stated that the second dog jumped out of the fire and ran off on fire.

According to the release, witnesses reported approximately four people sitting around the pit watching the debris being burned and were drinking alcoholic beverages. One of the witnesses, (unknown which one), made a comment daring Lowery to throw a stray dog into the fire. Witnesses stated that Lowery picked up the stray dog and threw the dog into the fire.

Deputy Williams made contact with Lowery who gave a voluntary statement, admitting to grabbing a stray dog that had bit him approximately two weeks earlier. Lowery advised the deputy that he was swinging the dog towards the fire but that he had stumbled over a rock or a root and “accidentally” tossed the dog into the fire.

Lowery was arrested and booked into the Wood County Jail on Monday and was charged with cruelty to a non-livestock animal, a state jail felony. His bond was set at $5,000. Lowery posted bail shortly after 9 a.m. this morning (Tuesday).

The sheriff’s department would not release any additional information however did say the case will be forwarded to the Wood County District Attorney’s office for prosecution.

There is a strong correlation between those alleged perpetrators who abuse animals, and those who end up abusing women and children; and can even become serial killers. The maximum sentence will insure Mr. Lowery's rehabilitation and assure society at large that no one else is hurt.

      Words fail me as I attempt to express the level of cruelty here. People who commit these type of crimes should be punished severely and locked away from all animals.
