Mariam Fowler Smith, a South Carolina woman, wrapped an electrical cord around the neck of her nephew's dog, hung it, doused it in kerosene, and then lit it on fire. Her nephew alerted authorities and when she was questioned about it she said that she did it because it chewed on her bible. The remains of the pup were found under a pile of grass. Please join with me to take a stand against her unacceptable actions and to ensure that she is held accountable. The maximum sentence for this violent crime is 5 years in prison and a stiff fine. That is nothing compared to the pain that this frightened and confused animal must have felt and the loss that her poor nephew is now suffering from losing a best friend.
