UPDATE: August 7th, 5:04pm EST: The Skamania County prosecutor has announced the filing of animal cruelty charges against Christopher Wayne Dillingham in addition to charging him for possession of a bomb or explosive device for unlawful purposes, a felony, and reckless endangerment. If convicted he faces up to 20 years in prison. Stevenson is currently being held on a $500,000 bond.
UPDATE: August 7th, 1:10 EST: I received a return phone call from a county official where Dillingham is being held on other charges. I was assured that everybody involved is just as sickened as the rest of us. They are working through the prosecutor’s office to do everything possible in prosecuting this madman on everything and anything that they can. I’ll update again when more info in available to the press.
Some days I come across a piece of news that has me yearning to remove myself from the human race. Maybe a bunker.
So, what has my panties in a twist, cruel horrible people and idiotic officials.
Christopher Dillingham, 45-years-old, and the owner of a fireworks business in Washington state decided to strap explosives to his beautiful dog Cabela’s collar, and blow her up. The dog was decapitated in the process. The crazed pyrotechnic freak said he blew up his Labrador because it was possessed by demons that his ex-girlfriend planted. Or some type of malarkey like that. He blew off his dog’s head! OMG!!!
If this isn’t disturbing enough, seems the officials in Stevenson’s Washington, a place I’ll be sure to never visit, decided that since the dog’s head was blown off, she didn’t suffer and no charges would be filed against Christopher Dillingham!
I consider myself to be a pacifist, but in this case I’d like to strap explosives to this lunatic and blow him up.
If you’re as outraged as I surely am, please call the Mayor of this cow-punk town and demand justice for Cabela. I’d give you the Mayor’s name, but apparently google can’t even find it. This number is for City Hall and surely someone there must know who the Mayor is. You can reach them at 509-427-5970!
Looks normal to me, right? ^ <insert heavy sarcasm>
