In Price Hill, Ohio, a Magistrate at the Hamilton County Juvenile Court, found two young teenagers guilty on Monday of trespassing and and slashing and beating a Great Pyrenees to death in the owner’s secured back yard , reports Local12.
The disturbing act of cruelty occurred in November 2014 when the fluffy dog, Nani was attacked by a nine-year-old boy and two 14-year-old teens after they scaled a fence into the family’s backyard on Beech Avenue. Once in the yard, they slashed and beat the dog without an ounce of mercy. When Nani’s owner, Sherry Mills returned from work, she described the egregious scene. “I’m calling her name Nani, and then I just see her; blood everywhere, out of her head just laying on the ground in the backyard. I pray for justice,” Mills stated. A veterinarian report stated Nani died from trauma to her head, ear and neck.
When the nine-year-old had violent nightmares about what he had done, his mother became very concerned and went to Sherry Mills with the information. The child’s mother stated he had seen the blood dog coming for him in his dreams. In court, the two teens who are brothers, acted bored. Magistrate Wende Cross found the nine-year-old’s story “absolutely compelling” and found the teens guilty of misdemeanor animal cruelty and trespassing. The boys are scheduled to be sentenced on October 27; neither teen has any previous criminal record.
Rest in peace Nani.
