2-pound dog used for deadly place kick

Stunned owner chases suspect down

A Priest Lake man killed his neighbor's 2-pound miniature Yorkshire terrier by kicking it into the air like a football, police said, and authorities have charged him with animal cruelty.

Jelani Lewis and Jessica McKenzie say they are outraged at the death of their 17-year-old pet, Gizmo. Lewis said he watched helplessly early yesterday as three men assaulted the dog the way football players kick field goals.

''I didn't believe that they actually kicked my dog,'' Lewis, 29, said yesterday, standing in a parking lot at the Nashboro Village apartment complex, where dried blood puddles were still on the blacktop. ''When I saw him kick it, I was thinking, maybe for a second, 'No, that really isn't Gizmo he's kicking.' ''

The dog was dead instantly when he hit the pavement. The man police say kicked him, Chad Daniel Crawford, 23, of the 1000 block of Long Hunter Lane is now charged with cruelty to animals and felony vandalism and was free yesterday after posting $25,000 bail, authorities said.

Chimpy gave him a dandy little war....

Of course, only a cowardly piece of shit would do something like this.

3. How could anyone be so cruel... usually this is a sure sign someone
will graduate to much worse later on. Hope they put him away for a while where he can't hurt anyone (or anything).

4. He wouldn't kick again
That much I can guarantee. Pets are members of the family where I come from.

5. What a macho guy.....
While my first thought is having him tied down so the entire neighborhood could render their own kicks, perhaps chemical (or surgical) castration is a better choice. Yes, I'm serious....

8. an eye for an eye . . .
I think they should hire an NFL place kicker to do to this animal what he did to that poor dog . . . although I'm against the death penalty, if that were my 17-year-old dog, you'd have to hold me back from killing the sob . . .

9. Have fun in prison pussy.


Have fun getting your dumb ass beat to a bloody pulp by a huge guy who uses your head for a football.

Turnabout is fair play.

10. The term "Dirt Nap" springs immediately to mind.
People like this are where the justice system fails miserably.

This creep will have a trial - that costs money. Then he'll be sent to the hoosegow for a while - more money. So everybody pays for this miserable piece of shit WHO HAS NOT THE SLIMMEST CHANCE OF EVER BEING ANYTHING MORE THAN HE IS RIGHT THIS SECOND. And in the end he walks back in to society, the same tool, now case-hardened.

Bullet. Shovel. Done. Or grind the motherfucker up and mix him into the dog food. Poetic.

Some "people" are beyond redemption or salvage, and that should be obvious.

11. Sometimes eye for an eye sounds like a real good thing
This is one of those times. What else could possible do?

I agree with the above poster about family. My pets are my children in a sense and I would treat someone attacking them the same way I would someone attacking my child...swiftly and decidely.

14. If someone did this to my pet - I'd be the one in jail
cause the jerk wouldn't be walking normally for a very long time if ever.
