A two-pound Yorkie living in St. George, Utah was killed with pruning shears!
The dog’s neighbor, 74-year-old Kenyon Clark Benson, pleaded guilty to killing Chewy but said it was just an accident.
He pleaded guilty to a “Class C misdemeanor of serious animal cruelty,” and many believe the punishment for the crime isn’t severe enough.
Chewy reportedly entered Benson’s property while he was trimming something.
Benson claims Chey ran up to him barking and he swung the pruning shears at the two-pound dog to scare him away.
The blow hit Chewy in the head, killing him instantly.
Hailey, Chewy’s 12-year-old owner, witnesses the whole thing and rushes home to tell her mother what happened.
Benson will serve 90 years in prison and was ordered to pay $2,109.03 in damages.
Benson overreacted, saying he should never have scissored a dog that small.
Rest in peace Chewy.
