    Miriam Smith Killed Dog For Chewing On Bible: Nephew's Pit Bull Hanged From Tree, Burned To Death

    COLUMBIA, S.C. — Authorities have charged a South Carolina woman with felony animal cruelty, saying she hanged her nephew's pit bull from a tree with an electrical cord and burned its body because the dog chewed on her Bible.

    Animal control officers said Monday that 65-year-old Miriam Smith told them she killed a female dog named Diamond because it was a "devil dog" and she worried it could harm neighborhood children. Authorities said bond wasn't immediately set for Smith, who remains jailed in Spartanburg County after her weekend arrest.

    Officials said she didn't have an attorney yet.

    She faces 180 days to five years in prison if convicted.

    Authorities say the remains of the dog were found under a pile of grass with part of an electrical cord around its neck.

    LOL... but its different here. In Pakistan, she would have been rewarded by mullahs (if she were a muslim and done so for the sake of quran). In US she got jailed for animal cruelty. :D
