Kevin Collins of Orland, Indiana Punishes His PIt Bull By Dragging it Behind His SUV. Unjust Punishment?


Was Kevin Collins "pissed off?" His pit bull had apparently just killed his Chihuahua. While not all the facts are known, Kevin may have borrowed an old chapter out of the wild west and punished his pit bull by dragging it to death behind his SUV. ( Guess Kevin did not have a horse to go with his rope.) Kevin Collins was arrested and charged with felony animal cruelty. The 20 year old remained at the Steuben County Jail on $10,000 bail as of Saturday night. Kevin was turned in by a woman who supposedly witnessed the dragging and called police. Collins allegedly dumped the dead dog along the road. If convicted, Collins could be sentenced to six months to three years in jail. Animal cruelty is looked upon with great disfavor in Indiana. The pit bull should have been given a fair trial and then execution carried out in a humane fashion.

He should have shot the dog and claimed self defense!

Animal cruelty? Yes, he was wrong to make the death so cruel. What was he thinking? He should have taken it to the vet, paid $250 and had it euthanized. That is the way the civilized world handles such situations.

See Daryl Holton (electrocution) Franklin Harrell Braddy (soon to be lethal injection.)

He should have just sent the pit bull to J.J. They could have had a few prayer sessions and the dog would have been reformed and returned to society.

Lay off the pit bulls. It is the owners who deserve to be punished. If a pit bull attacks, it was trained poorly.

Hot dog. Literally, the friction would have been very great.

Dogs can not reform. (They are Hindu not Christian!)

Wonder if he gave the dog a last meal? Daryl Holton got a last meal!

JJ - I always think of dogs as being more Zen Buddhist - they live totally in the moment, in the Now.

(although my dog still struggles mightily with attaining Non-Attachment ...)

This is really sick and this kid likely needs counseling. I don't like this breed, but this is not right either. Maybe he is a friend of Michael Vick?

I always figured that a dog was a dsylexic agnosic... someone who does not believe in "dog"
