Florida sheriff reprimands woman on Facebook after dog drowns

TITUSVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida sheriff took to Facebook and berated an animal cruelty suspect as a “despicable excuse for a human being” after she was accused of drowning her Chihuahua.

The 32-year-old woman was already in Brevard County Jail for stabbing a 68-year-old man when police received video of her allegedly stepping into a swimming pool and holding the small dog underwater. Sheriff Wayne Ivey posted a video on Facebook in which he describes the abuse and makes it clear what he thinks of the crime.

“There is a special place in hell for this woman. Until she does, she will rot in our prison,” Ivey said.

He showed a brief portion of the video, but said it was too graphic to show in its entirety. After drowning the dog, she slammed him on the concrete patio, then put his body on a chair inside the house for several days, holding him at one point during a social media post, Ivey said.

“That woman, if I hear that much she’s got a rock fart, I’m gonna lose my shit,” he said.

When the woman was already in jail, Ivey broke her out so he could walk her home to be charged with animal cruelty.

As Ivey and an animal cruelty investigator walk her back to the jail, Ivey says to her, “Usually when I bring people in, I have something to tell them. I’m disgusted with you. You look all sad and all that. How do you think that dog felt when you held him underwater?”
