Intoxicated man accused of killing his mother's dog

Intoxicated man accused of killing his mother’s dog during argument

A woman in Mason County, West Virginia, is devastated after the death of one of her beloved dogs. According to WSAZ News, it was Cheryl Watson’s own son who killed the little dog.

The trouble began on Monday night when Michael Watson came home after drinking – Watson and his mother argued and Watson allegedly went into a fit of rage, throwing things around the home and then turning his anger on one of Cheryl’s small dogs.

Cheryl told WSAZ that she had been hiding her head in fear when she heard a “thump” and her dog’s lifeless body was by her feet. Though Cheryl tried to give the dog CPR, he could not be revived. Cheryl’s son blames the dog’s death on a thrown flower pot, but Cheryl believes that Michael body slammed her dog on the ground. She stated, “I didn’t see anything thrown. I just saw the dog land at my feet. I picked him up and he was deceased. I put his snout in my mouth and tried to resuscitate him.”

Watson was booked into the Western Regional Jail on a charge of animal cruelty.

I hope she disowns this drunken POS, there is no forgiving what he did to a poor little innocent dog! Flower pot my behind, he threw and killed his Mother’s little dog, how sad, the dog was obviously worth more than her monster of a son!

      I want to add, one of my kids did this to my dog, I think my inner monster would have come out and there wouldn’t have been anything of them left to arrest.
