Couple accused of drowning dog in swimming pool

Two teenagers in Raleigh,  North Carolina, are accused of drowning their rescued black Labrador retriever mix in an apartment complex swimming pool. According to Monday’s WCNC News, the 19-year-olds, identified as Khai Daugherty and Annaliese Petersen, are facing a charge of felony animal cruelty for the death of “Eclipse,” a dog who had been adopted from the Wake County Animal Shelter earlier this year.

Petersen denies the accusation – claiming that she is devastated over the death of her dog and that she would never have hurt him, reported ABC 11 News. Petersen claims that her boyfriend told her that he had been “playing” with the dog, by repeatedly dunking him underwater, before Eclipse died. She told ABC 11, “I had no idea of the extent of what was actually happening. The police think I knew. I honest-to-God had no idea.” Officials claim that Eclipse was beaten and drowned – Peterson has claimed that the damage to her dog’s body was from the couple’s attempts to revive him with CPR, not from a beating.Screenshot (934)

After Eclipse died, the couple took his body to the woods – the August 18 incident has resulted in serious charges for the couple and if they are found guilty, they could face several years in prison.

    I can’t even begin to imagine the horror that Eclipse went through as he tried to survive. He LOVED those “things” (I can’t call them “human”) and they did this to him. Also, I’m not buying her “I didn’t know” excuse. RIP Eclipse.

    Yeah, sure – that BITCH had “NO IDEA” what was going on… which is why his body was taken to the woods to hide…

    LYING C*NT!

    Just “erase” them, both: They don’t deserve to even breathe, when they deprived this hapless soul of his life…

    I’m sorry,another case of ‘I didn’t know ‘, or ‘they’re young’. No. It needs to end and only a serious punishment will start to scare people and make them think before they do these disgusting things. That dog trusted them. Dogs are so loyal,to the end. Poor baby. Punish them to the full extent and make an example. They are garbage so treat them that way.

    If they were so “innocent” why did they take the dog into the woods and not to a vet? These POS dirtbags need fo be punished severely, but I fear there will be no justice for Eclipse, Rest in peace sweet pup, you didn’t deserve these murderers for owners.

    First off. Animals love, protect their babies and human babies, they feel sadness and feel pain. All they want is someone to love and to be loved back. The courts are way to easy on mobsters like these two. Any person that abuses an animal should be given a very hefty fine and thrown in jail for a minimum of five years. Hopefully there are men and women in jail that hate animal abusers like they hate monsters that abuse children and will make these monsters feel the pain and suffering that poor helpless went through, over and over again.

    They should be tied up back to back and set on fire, at least they would get a small idea of what eternity is going to be like for both of them meanwhile eclipse will be running and playing and free in heaven. Their parents must be so proud. How did something that God creates become so vile and so cruel.

    What vile disgusting individuals , why rescue a dog and then kill it in a horrible way and then try and dispose of the body. I don’t suppose they will get the punishment they deserve. Sick.

    I have a springer spaniel who’s previous owners children used to hold him under water in their pool. He can swim but is terrified of water. We got him at 11 months he is now 12 years old and has never got over it. Drown the bastards. ?
