This is both depressing and disturbing.

Christopher W. Dillingham - a Washington native who was arrested on Sunday for attaching explosives to his dog and blowing him to pieces - may not face animal cruelty charges.

  • Dog Murderer
  • Dead Dog

According to KATU, officers responded to Dillingham's home around 4 a.m. after neighbors heard an explosion.

They arrived to find bits of his Labrador Retriever (named Cabella) scattered around the lawn.

Dillingham has a history of domestic violence and owns a fireworks stands. He told authorities, via KOIN, that his girlfriend gave him the canine and that she "put the devil in it."

Despite this admission and the evidence attached to the case, Undersheriff Dave Cox originally said Dillingham would not be charged with animal cruelty because the dog did not suffer.

HOWEVER, shortly after that assessment went public, Skamania County prosecutors told KATU they had initially gone after counts that possessed the highest bail - and that charges of animal cruelty are "absolutely applicable" and still a possibility.

Bail for Dillingham's was set at $500,000 yesterday,

Now, why did he blow up that beautiful dog? Did his mother not understand him, the the kids when he was growing up make fun of him, no he is a cruel person, who blew up a beautiful dog. He should get the max, take a bomb, put it in his mouth and blow him up. That's a crock that his girlfriend put the devil in him, the dog hated him, he knew what a mental case he was. There has to be something charged against this man, what was that judge thinking.

The dog did not suffer so it was okay to do it???? GOOD GRIEF!!! What about the next dog, the next cat, the next innocent to suffer at his hands? Look at that beautiful dog, that innocent face. The devil? I think he was looking at the wrong thing. He should have been looking in the mirror.
