Shocking Video: Man Purposely Runs Over And Kills His Chihuahua

See also

The Los Angeles Daily News has just released a sickening video, recorded on December 28, on which a Hawthorne, CA man is seen purposely running over his own Chihuahua, then driving away while the tiny dog is dying in the alley.

After seeing the video a few days ago, police arrested 45-year-old Michael David Parker, but he was quickly released after he’d posted the $20,000 bail. Parker didn’t deny that he is seen on the gut-wrenching video, but claims it was accident. Hawthrone police Lt. Scott Swain disagreed, saying, "You can see him swerving toward the dog. (…) It’s a little poor defenseless dog and the guy just runs right over it and leaves and doesn’t offer any help.

The body of Cow Cow, the poor five-and-a-half-year-old, male Chihuahua was found by a resident several days after the pooch’s death; said resident had a video surveillance camera pointed at the alley and made a police report after reviewing the tape.

"Parker is scheduled for arraignment March 25 at the Airport courthouse in Del Aire,” writes the Los Angeles Daily News.

The video of the unbelievably cruel incident can be found here, but viewer discretion is highly advised before watching it.
