When Miriam Fowler Smith, 65, of Pacolet Mills, S.C asks God for advice he answers and aÂ dogÂ losesÂ his life. Smith didn't know whatÂ to do whenÂ her nephew's pit bull Diamond chewed on her BibleÂ so she asked God and, according to Smith, God told her that Diamond was a "devil dog" and should be destroyed. Smith hung the dog from a tree withÂ an extension cordÂ and then burned the body.
Smith's nephew, who had been out of town, initially thought that Diamond had broken his leash until he confronted his aunt who confessed and told police officers that after the Bible chewing incident she thought the dog would start attacking children in the neighborhood. Smith has been charged with felony animal cruelty.
For those out there who think that pit bulls are the only dogs that do damage, and there are people who think that, I've owned several different breeds of dogs who have done there fair share of chewing, including Jack Russell Terriers, who by the way are related to pit bulls. Sadly I know a few people who would say good riddance to a pit bull being destroyed even in such a horrifying manner.
