A California man is accused of a heinous act of animal cruelty which resulted in the death of his mother’s pit bull. According to the Californian, 22-year-old Devonte Marquis Sirwet is accused of breaking into his mother’s home in Soledad and stealing her black and white pit bull, Kato.

Man burned his mother's pit bull

Sirwet allegedly took the dog to a canal, doused him in lighter fluid and set him on fire – the pit bull’s injuries from the extensive burns, which covered 90 percent of his body, were so severe that he had to be euthanized. Two days after the dog was burned, Sirwet was arrested in Salinas and booked into jail – while there, he phoned his mother. Deputies who monitored the call noted that the accused man never denied urning the pit bull, only questioning his mother for “telling” on him.

Facing charges for allegedly burning his mother’s dog

Sirwet has pleaded not guilty to the slew of charges he acquired in the alleged animal cruelty crime – he is facing charges of burglary, torturing the animal, arson and bringing heroin into the Monterey County Jail. The accused man could face up to seven years behind bars if he is found guilty.

    Seven years is a good start. Ten would have been better. He had no remorse for the pain he put that dog through. This cretin needs stood in front of a firing squad and shot. No need to waste clean air on this kind of trash.

    What do you mean if he is found guilty he is guilty no doubt about it
    7 years is not long enough in what he did to that fur baby
    I hope that the inmates gives him a bloody good beating whilst he is prison

    Excuse me! Only 7 years for all the charges he’s racked up, especially torturing an animal! He needs to be put away for a lot longer than that! Let him be placed with an animal lover like Bubba! Bet he won’t touch another animal then!

  5. Marni Montanez says:

    That’s how out of touch with reality he is…….he questioned his mom about telling on him…………Telling that her fur-baby was tortured to death………telling that it was her monster son who did this heinous crime. she was so right for “telling” on him.

    Oh, I truly pray it’s more than 7 years. What a horrid disgusting act on an innocent. That poor loving dog suffered so because that sewer scum was mad at his MOM?

  7. Bunny Peters says:

    Poor furbaby….. RIP and please look for MacKitty. He will welcome you to his wonderful snuggle buddies group……

    Lock up this POS and lose the keys forever!!!!! There is a special place in Hell reserved and waiting for him where he will burn forever for his cruelty…… hope he gets there sooner vs. later (after dying alone, in pain, afraid and unloved)…… the world will be better off without this POS!!!

  9. Mary Ann Clark says:

    This punk hood rat needs a dose of his own medicine – jail is not good enough for what he did – he needs to given the exact same treatment he gave an innocent animal – douse his useless butt with gasoline, light him on fire and leave – he did this to Kato for no reason other than he could, well someone or someones need to give him exactly what he gave an innocent dog – NO MERCY!! Too bad the gas chamber is not in use.
