A man who blew up his dog won’t be charged with animal cruelty. The Washington Father of one owns a firework’s display and may have used such materials when he attached a device to the golden retriever, Cabella’s neck. When police arrived on the scene at 4 a.m., the dog’s carcass was strewn over the yard. The man, Christopher W. Dillingham, 45, explained that he had killed the dog because it was possessed; his ex-girlfriend, who had given him the dog when her cousin could no longer care for it, “put the devil in it.” But because the animal didn’t suffer, as far as is known, no charges of animal cruelty were set.

There were, however, charges for the use and detonation of explosions. Dillingham had previously cleared his house of metal objects because he says the were possessed by “the souls of demons” and was preparing for a nuclear “rapture.” No children in his house have been reportedly hurt.


The original owner of the dog expressed regret for how things turned out. “I felt a little bit of guilt too. It’s the worst part,” he told KATU.

Dillingham is being held on $500,000 bail, and Prosecuting Attorney Adam Kick said that the possibility of a charge of animal cruelty is still possible.
