Nashville man arrested for shoving dog in trash compactor and turning it on

In Nashville, Tennessee, the man alleged to have shoved his mother’s Shih Tzu into the an apartment complex’s trash compactor and activating it several times has been arrested and charged with aggravated animal cruelty. Officers from the Metro Nashville Police Department arrested Terrence Clark on Tuesday.

According to The Tennessean, a surveillance video shows Clark, 27, pull up to the area where the trash compactor was located, take the dog out of the back seat, shove it into a grocery bag and then put it into the trash compactor. Clark then can be seen pushing the button to start the compactor four times before he drives away. The dog was rescued after a resident of the complex called the Nashville Fire Department after he heard the pooch crying and barking inside the compactor. The dog was rushed to a veterinarian but died four days later.

Clark remains in jail in lieu of a $65,000 bond. Rest in peace little dog.

    Bastard. There needs to be ‘an eye for an eye’ justice when something like this occurs. This piece of human excrement, not a man, is a MONSTER, and deserves to be treated like one, and that means he should die like one.

    This man has no respect for life in general and should not be around animals or children. Poor pooch, at least now it is no longer in pain… so sad its life had to end this way!

    First of all, the thing that did this to the poor little dog is not a man. It isn’t even human. I don’t know what it is but I do know that the punishment should fit the crime. It should be dropped in to the nearest trash compactor. I will be more than happy to push the button four times before driving away. The little dog had value. The creature who murdered the dog probably wouldn’t even be good as compost. Karma will have its day.

    He should have the same done to him!! What a evil, twisted minded individual. Make him pay, animal cruelty is a crime, a felony. No small slap on the wrist….DO YOU JOBS AND GIVE THIS SUB HUMAN THE MAX. Why do we have laws to protect animals from torture and neglect and abuse, etc. if NO ONE ENFORCES THEM??????????????

    The only good this piece of shit is worth is to harvest its organs. There is no human nor soul housed in this vessel so therefore it is NOT a human life for us to hold any value for. Better to give others a chance at new life and discard this demon back to where it belongs. Earth is NOT YOUR HOME!! ????????????????????????

    1) WHY would any apartment complex have a trash compactor available for ANYONE to operate?????? Way too may assholes like this idiot who would do the same thing to an innocent animal. Terrance Clark should get the punishment he deserves, a quick trip thru the same trash compactor – and push that button over and over until the screams stop.

      Anyone can use it as long as you’re there visiting someone. I wonder if his mother was aware of what was going on.
