Terrier blown up by yobs

SICK yobs blew a helpless Yorkshire Terrier to bits after tying a firework to it — then took photos on their phones.

The dead animal’s insides were scattered across a road by the force of the blast.

The owners of 11-year-old Emmie last night branded the killers “sick”.

Maureen and Keith Barrington, both 67, said Emmie had bolted from their garden after being scared by fireworks.

Maureen said: “They are sick in the head. They can’t be right because who would want to do that?

“How can they make her suffer and film her and laugh?”

Keith added: “When I found her, my heart sank.

“She had been blown to bits and covered in blood but I knew straight away it was her because of her red collar. We think she ran out into the road and was hit by a car. Then these lads stopped as she lay in the road and blew her up and were taking photographs of her.”

The devastated couple buried Emmie in their garden with her favourite toy in Linthwaite, West Yorks.

Maureen added: “She was lovely and beautiful, and so tiny.

“I hope she was run over and dead before they got to her and did not die that way because I can’t bear the thought of her going through that.

“But whether she was alive or dead, it was an absolutely disgusting thing to do. It is terrible to dismember her body like that.”

A witness took the number plate of the thugs’ car and police plan to prosecute for criminal damage.

The Sun is campaigning with the RSPCA to stamp out animal cruelty.

Keith added: “My wife is just getting over cancer and I’ve had a triple heart bypass — but Emmie was something to live for.”

I read this in the sun and thought how sad!

Hi Farmgal,
I read it too, and I keep thinking this country has to be producing the sickiest kids ever. When they arent blowing pets up with fireworks, they are throwing them to be eaten by animals in the zoo, or drowning them in the washing machine or whatever. And worse, they do the same to other kids. True, how sad!

Woi both you and Guess seem to have had it with this eti drown them ama each other or feed them to animals in the zoo? haiya honestly whats with those kids? how sad. This world is getting evil.

My dog-Milo-is a yorkie too and I literally cringe at the thought of someone blowing him up, omg I'd feel devastated too.

I feel their pain and just as them hope she was dead before they blew her off.

Happy week Fgal:)

I can't even think about Emmie without crying. Just a tiny, helpless, little thing. The ONLY way I can get through the thoughts is to rule that because she was so tiny, she died from being run over and it was probably instant. I just cannot bear to think she suffered with the 'blow-up' of fireworks - the things she was obviously most scared of! I really feel for the owners. Those who did this need blowing up too. Most serial murderers start out by killing small animals etc. It is a sure sign!! So god help us... The penalty should be high for this!

I just can't help thinking that the world is turning into a pure evil place. Nothing is done about this type of thing, and it is a discrace. I cannot understand how it is ok for someone to kill anyone or anything and get away with it. Kids get murdered, and the murderers enjoy a life in prison, being looked after and fed. They do not have to go to work, they can just sit there all day and play games etc. while the victims families are upset grieving and their lives ruined. The world in upside down topsy turvy, and I personally think that if nothing gets done about this type of thing soon (It may already be too late) the world will just have to end. Mother Nature will not keep allowing this to go on, she will work accordingly and put and end to our existence so she can start again. For example if you have pond full of frogs and hardly any fish because the frogs are eating them, nature will find a way to make sure that some of the fish species will survive. Maybe change things for the frogs so they are not as plentiful in relation to fish, but whatever she will do it, whether it takes years decades etc. How many more innoccent people and animals are going have to be killed before some real deterrent is brough in. Get onto the Prime Minister and tell him what we want, we want punishment for these people, not excuses. (Bring back public flogging) and if all fails, the death penalty. It would soon stop. Such a simple solution that is what makes me think the world is topsy turvy, upside down; because why is it not in place. What flimsy excuse will there be this time. A few innocent people might die by mistake. But what about the thousands of people that do die at the hands of these murderous uncivilised, evil b******s. No-one stands up for them! why is that. Why should some pompass ass tell us that some guy killed someone because of how he was brought up. What is all that about; pity they didnt murder them whoever they are, if they think that that is a good excuse to murder some sweet law abiding citizen, WAAAKKKEE UUUPPPP WWWOOORRRRLLLLLD! Is there anyway we can get a decent world back. I really doubt it. IF anyone has any ideas on how to get some changes made post them here, and lets do them together! If you feel as upset as me over this poor little Yorkie, well thats enought to start somthing. No More! Lets make them pay. I dont enjoy ranting like this, but It so upsetting , and I hate reading the papers, for fear of reading this type of thing.
