In Manchester, New Hampshire, a pregnant woman alleged to have killed her roommate’s pet ferret in the oven and turned it on, defended her action by telling police:

 “They shouldn’t have a ferret because I’m pregnant.”

Ivana Clifford, 26, has been charged with one count of felony animal cruelty According to NH1, the fire department arrived at Clifford’s residence on Wednesday night after heavy smoke had been reported coming from the oven. Firemen found the dead ferret “stuck to the bottom coil of the oven.”

Cara Murray and James Klimavich had invited Clifford and her husband to stay with them after the couple had been kicked out of another apartment nearby. Murray and Klimavich stated they felt sorry for the couple at the time. Cara believes Clifford had planned to kill her pet two-year-old ferret named Angel, and that the ferret would nip – but that was because it was a baby.


On Wednesday, Clifford pleaded not guilty. Judge Gillian Abramson ruled Clifford would remain in jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail stating the nature of the case was worrisome:

“These allegations demonstrate a profound level of sadism that is of deep concern to this court.”

It has been reported Clifford is nearly eight-months pregnant.

    They had better remove that child from her custody permanently when it is born or they may find the baby in the oven next time! She should never be let free ever again!

    This was on the local news and they did not mention that she did it because she was pregnant. They never provided why, however, she is a POS! The cop was shocked to see a dead animal in the oven. What a sick BITCH!

    To even imagine this so called ‘woman’ a mother is very scary – the Klimavichs took in this loser bitch because she was evicted and this is how she repays their kindness? Killing their pet ferret, Angel – I wouldn’t let this skank ‘ho raise a pet rock much less a child – her actions proved what a worthless hunk of sewer slime she is. Her kid has no future with a mother like her.

    I would certainly not want this thing around my children or pets. Her child is in danger and the courts must take the child away or they should be held responsible. RIP little ferret. You were so precious and innocent when this monster hurt you so.
