A little dog named “Big John” was allegedly killed by his owner, who told the authorities that she was tired of the 12-year-old dog biting her. According to the Miami Herald, 61-year-old Alice Evans choked Big John to death with his owner collar early Saturday morning after the dog bit her on the hand.
The truth came out after Evans went to Fishermen’s Community Hospital, in Marathon, Florida, for treatment of the small wound on her hand (which was described as the size of a pencil eraser). When Evans told the hospital what had taken place, staff informed the Florida Keys SPCA.
Evans’ decision to choke Big John to death has resulted in her arrest and a felony charge of aggravated cruelty to animals.
Big John’s body was examined by a veterinarian, who confirmed that the dog died of strangulation.
