Two Dogs Burned Alive in Texas ~ Watch Video ~ Sign Petition

An East Texas man is charged with Animal Cruelty after throwing two dogs into a burning fire pit.

Authorities say one of the dogs died when 28-year-old Larry Lowery threw it into a fire pit. The Wood County Sheriff tells us the second dog ran away while on fire.

According to the Wood County Sheriff, four people were sitting around a fire pit drinking alcoholic beverages, watching the dogs burn.

“I seen my granddaughter, she’s five years old and I saw her crying and I said, Rylee what’s wrong baby? and she said, Grand Mammy, that man threw a dog into that fire,” said Fay Norris, a next door neighbor.

Faye Norris says after her granddaughter told her what happened, she confronted those at the fire pit.

“He put his arm around me and told me he was sorry,” said Norris.

Norris said Lowery’s attitude was as if he didn’t care.

“It was a joke to him. He had been drinking and he thought it was funny,” said Norris.

Just a short time after that confrontation , Norris says Lowery threw a second dog into the fire.

“Later on when I went into the house to eat supper and come back out, I found out he threw another dog into the fire.

When asked how she found out he threw the second dog in she said, “He said he did, he was bragging about it,” said Norris.

One of the dogs was thrown in, got up and ran off, and nobody has seen it since, and the other one is laying over there in the pit, it’s just unbelievable,” said neighbor Michael Mays.

Bill Wansley, the Wood County Sheriff said Lowery gave a voluntary statement admitting he grabbed a stray dog who had bit him two weeks earlier, swinging it towards the fire and then stumbled, and accidentally tossed the dog into the fire.

“It takes a mentally disturbed individual, my opinion, to do something that cruel,” said Norris.

Lowery was charged with cruelty to animals, a state jail felony. He was released Tuesday on a $5,000 bond. The case will be forwarded to the Wood County District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.

Lovely Lexi Needs a New Home

Rescued by The Pet Connection (and adopted by us almost two years ago), Lexi is an eight year old female pit bull/bulldog mix. She had a malignant tumor successfully removed from her hind leg over a year ago and shows no sign of recurrence. She weighs about 75 pounds and is very healthy. She is remarkably friendly and easy-going (and lazy), so she would be ideal with other dogs and/or children.

Lexi is kennel-trained, house-broken and does OK (tends to pull a little hard) on a leash. We have been giving her a daily barrage of vitamins and other holistic remedies to help prevent the cancer from returning. We have provided her with a high degree of medical care, both curative and preventative, and will provide her new guardian with all of the holistics she is taking, her kennel, her leashes, her shampoo, and her medical records.

Handsome Chico Needs a New Home.

A resident of The Pet Connection for over a year, Chico is a six year old pitbull. He is a strikingly handsome dog who exhibits unmatched loyalty and love to his guardians. He weighs about 70 pounds and is the epitome of physical health.

With his amazing strength, athleticism, and territorialism, Chico is a formidable protector and watchdog.  He is a handful, though. Chico is dog aggressive, primarily toward other males, though he does get along with Lexi, our 8 year old female pit.

Close vigilance and separation from other most other dogs are a must with him. He also exhibits separation anxiety, so an ideal guardian would be someone who is looking for a good watchdog and a very loving companion, has the energy to keep up with Chico, spends a lot of time around the house, is willing to be a one-dog owner, and is willing to exert the responsibility necessary to manage a dog with some behavioral issues. Chico can be trying but he is worth it!

Also he is house-broken, kennel trained, does well walking on a gentle leader, and had the benefit of some assessment and training by Wayne Hunthausen. He has been a member of our family for four years. Unfortunately, circumstances are preventing us from keeping him. We will provide his new guardian with his leash, gentle leader, kennel, and medical records.
