A pit bull puppy, not unlike this one, was killed and cooked by a Tampa man.
And now for a completely horrifying news story to ruin your day.

A Florida man was arrested for killing and then cooking a 4-month old pit bull puppy.

The man apparently also cut the dog into several pieces and placed them in the freezer.

It was the family dog.

Thomas Elliot Huggins, a 25-year-old Tampa man, allegedly strangled the puppy to death, cut it into pieces, threw its head into the garbage, and began to cook some of the remains.

The man's family called police at around 11:00 p.m. on Tuesday.

When cops arrived to the home on 9607 N Aster Ave., Huggins was cooking the dog.

The puppy's ribs were cooking in a pot on the stove.

Huggins was arrested and booked in the Hillsborough County Jail. He's being held on $2,000 bail.

There could be a lot more to this story.  And I hate to point this out, dog is considered a delicacy in a lot of the rest of the world.  Personally I do not approve of the practice but it is something to keep in the back of your mind at least.

Considering the fact that a video of an Orlando vet tech was caught dangling a dog by its leash and slamming it against a wall this week. in addition to the very serious over-population of pets we have down here and the dire situation if some animals (I'm involved in rescue so it's not anecdotal) the caption of what is wrong with you Florida is absolutely correct

Not fair to accuse "Florida"!! It was one sick person. I live in Florida and my friends live in Florida and my family lives in Florida and we would NEVER DO THAT!

Typical self-hating Florida article. And yes, this does suck.

@Kittine A. Moreno I saw that video earlier and I'm so sick over it. FL definitely has their issues. As does many states/cities that leave these crimes unreported. I live in TX and if this said, "What's wrong with you, TX?" I would not be at all shocked.

Animal Cruelty is so wrong. I wish more people understood this, its link to human violence, and take these crimes more seriously!

@labountycontracting I don't condone the killing or consumption of snakes or turtles either but I have to say that strangling your family pet then cooking him is a much more twisted scenario...
