Man Cuts out Own Eye, Headless Woman and Dead Dogs Found in House

Sgt.Trent Crump, a police spokesman, gave this account of the horrific incident:

A male neighbor knocked on the door of the apartment to check on the 43-year-old suspect, whom he hadn’t seen since the day before. When the man, whose name was not immediately released, answered the door, his left arm was severed at the elbow and his left eyeball was missing.

The neighbor could see that the apartment’s floors and walls were covered in blood and immediately contacted authorities. Officers saw several knives in the residence, and it remains unknown which were used during the slaying and self-mutilation.

When officers arrived, they detained the suspect and entered the apartment. There, they found the woman’s decapitated body inside a walk-in closet. Two dead dogs were also discovered inside the residence.

…The suspect spoke with police officers outside the apartment and indicated that he “killed three family members,” Crump said. It was unknown if the suspect was referring to the woman and the dogs or other relatives, but police are checking on other family members.

Yeah, Who the Fuck Are These Asshats?

“We need help,” [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration special agent Gregg Houghaboom] said, in tracking down who shot these protected mammals. “We have zero leads…zero responses from the public. We’re hoping someone will have heard something about these cases or saw something on Facebook.”

The pregnant bottlenose dolphin was found dead on Miramar Beach in Choctawhatchee Bay, near Destin around Nov. 21.

A necropsy, or non-human autopsy, revealed the dolphin died of a gunshot wound to her upper right side, likely with a small caliber firearm. She was within weeks of giving birth. The bullet was discovered lodged in the dolphin’s lung. It’s possible the dolphin may have been shot one to two days before it was found dead, NOAA officials said.

A second dolphin was found on Sunday on Orange Beach with a hunting arrow in its side.

It’s the same type of arrow used in deer hunting, Haughaboom said.

Based on preliminary results of a necropsy, it appears the dolphin lived with the arrow in its side for at least five days before eventually dying from a secondary infection caused by the wound.

Whale Dolphin Conservation Society, a worldwide charity whose mission is conservation of whales and dolphins, is offering a $2,500 reward in the pregnant dolphin’s death.

On its online news feed at, it stated it began the reward program last year in response to a large number of “illegal and cruel” acts of humans killing dolphins.

One of the deaths that spurred the society to take action was the dolphin found dead in Perdido Bay in June 2012 with a screwdriver lodged in its head.

Late Tuesday, the Humane Society of the United States and The Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust offered up a $5,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the dolphin killed with an arrow.

According to the Humane Society, this is at least the 13th dolphin shot since 2010.

Asshat-at-Large Beats to Death Bear Cub, Dumps Body in NYC Central Park

Police told AFP that officers were called to Manhattan’s largest public park shortly before 10 am by a warden after the baby bear was found lying in a grassy area.

They said the bear was 3 feet long and transported to the Bronx Zoo.

The discovery baffled officials and disturbed members of the public, who go jogging, relax, walk their dogs and play with their children in Central Park.

No animals have been reported missing from any zoo in the city, leading to speculation that the bear may have been killed elsewhere and its body dumped.

The bear, somehow separated from her mother, was later on Monday transported to New York state department of environmental conservation in Albany for a necropsy.

Woman Throws Puppies from 3d Floor, Kills Both

The Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals received a report Saturday that a guest at the Crystal Inn at 4025 Tulane Ave. had flung two puppies from the third floor. Another guest picked up the dogs and rushed them to an emergency veterinary clinic.

The LA/SPCA’s Cruelty Investigations team identified [Kisha] Carter [25] as a suspect in the puppies’ deaths by interviewing the guest who tried to save the dogs and examining the motel’s security camera footage, Abbrecht added. The LA/SPCA then worked with the New Orleans Police Department to take Carter into custody on Monday night.
