CHESAPEAKE, Va. (CBS Washington) — A Portsmouth woman faces up to 50 years in prison after pleading guilty to beheading her boyfriend’s piglet.

According to court documents, Ashley Fowler, 22, was breaking up with the piglet’s owner Zach Sawyer and wanted to play a prank first.

Sawyer’s mother told the Virginian-Pilot last year that the piglet’s head freaked her out when she let her puppy outside early one morning last February and saw it staring back at her.

“For somebody to come and do something like this was unbelievably sick,” Janie Sawyer told the paper.

The Sawyers had to euthanize another pig who Fowler admitted to stabbing in the same incident. She said her son started raising them on the family farm as therapy after he suffered a head injury.

Fowler also plead guilty to charges of possessing Adderall and breaking and entering.

    Yes Eric that does happen, but 99.9999% of the people don’t kill the pigs as revenge for a failed relationship and leave the head outside someone’s house ala “The Godfather.”

    1. Bill says:

      But 50 years is excessive, especially in a country where a lot of murderers and child molesters run around free. Michsel Vick only got 2 years for his animal cruelty shennanigans anyways.

      1. go gingrich says:

        You are absolutely correct. This woman is a freak and deserves a harsh punishment, but we should be giving out MUCH harsher punishments to murderers, rapists and child molesters. This society is a mess and getting worse.

      2. Jim says:

        Micheal Vick, got 2 years for running an illegal gambling operation(Dog fighting)
        not animal cruelty.

      3. Bill 2 says:

        Jim, I guess you skip over the parts were the low performers were tortured and killed.

      4. Amy says:

        Money talks and well, you know, BS walks….

      5. CD says:

        Its says she faces up to 50 years, not that she has been sentenced to 50 years. It would appear the 50 is the statutory maximum for what she plead guilty to.

      6. Joe-Bob says:

        And when she can throw for 30 yards and run a 4.3 40, she’ll get it commuted to 2 years.

        It’s the American Way.

    2. homer crad says:

      I have seen woman abort their boyfriend’s baby or their husband out of revenge though, happened to my son! Sad in any case.

        American Patriot (really?)

        you’re an idiot.

  2. Roger Dowd says:

    How did they find out it was her? Somebody must have squealed.

    1. Bob G says:

      Hey Roger Dowd, terrible story about the piglet but I feel your comment was in good taste.

    2. Jerky Miester says:

      OK … that made me spew my coffee. TA DA!

    3. GozieBoy says:

      Oink oink oink!

    4. Mike says:

      Thanks for the levity in the face of pure stupidity.

    5. RHO says:

      Maybe there was a stool pigeon watching the caper.

      1. says:

        Roger Dowd – First with Bob G coming in a close second 🙂 Thanks for the humor. (RHO you get an award as well 🙂

        You will all be rewarded with bacon and spare ribs. 🙂

    Dear God, can you please stop this madness — people desecrate the sanctity of life, no punishment, they abuse children, sexually, physically and mentally, with little or no punishment and then here is a possibility that someone who beheads a pig — will get 50 years. Please help us, we need divine intervention.

      maybe the tooth fairy or father time or mother nature will come help you..clue it’s all in your imagination.

      maybe the tooth fairy or father time or mother nature will come help you..clue it’s all in your imagination.

    3. Suzie says:

      It’s irrational to compare the punishment of one crime to another. That’s not the point. Her punishment is recognition that anyone who purposely acts in a cruel and inhumane manner toward any living thing needs to suffer the consequences. but I can see why her son was raising pigs for therapy; must run in the family. Fifty years in prison is to expensive and too long. she would never serve it anyway. Look at Lindsey Lohan. Jails and prisons are too crowded. It’s just a sentence that could theoretically be imposed under the law.

      1. Facilityman says:

        Beheading a pig is not cruel, especially if you plan to eat it. The real crime is it was not her pig to behead. Now kiling for fun usually implies some deep seated problems which she obviously has. For the crimes of B&E and killing someone elses piglet she deserves about 6 months probation and community service and maybe 30 days at the most. It is not a capital crime.

      2. Shuk says:

        So, if I came to your house and decapitated your dog, stabbed the other so it had to get euthanized… in order to get back at your for some perceived grievance – you would be ok with me just getting 6 months probation?

        Pigs are delicious, but they are also intelligent animals and make good pets. In this case, they were pets.

      3. Wiglaf says:

        Shuk, no, I would not be okay with that. I would expect 3 times the monetary value of my animals, though. Yes, they are ANIMALS. They do not have the same rights as people regardless of how much they personify them.

    4. Mohamed says:

      Yeah right…and you will not scream DV when your bf kills your dog and you expect him to get the punishment for DV

  4. Jason says:

    Old Zach should consider himself one lucky dude. If he got rid of this sick (trying to think of a word that wold get past censors , but cant) broad loosing only a couple of pigs, he is way ahead of the game. Hope the sadistic, sick broad enjoys a long rest in the state pen. SICK SICK SICK

  5. John C says:

    WHat law was violated, and what violation is she being charged with to warrent a possible 50 year sentece – is it against the law to “murder a piglet”?

    1. jack says:

      It wasn’t her piglet. How would you feel if some cut off the head of your dog or cat? I believe the crime is likely for making threats not necessarily killing a pig.

      1. Farmer Bob says:

        Do you propose that punishment should be awarded based on how you “feel about” the crime? Many people feel their pets are worth more than a human. Such people lack a sense of proportion. I would prefer not to trivialize the law it by extending it to animals on an equal basis with humans. After all, if the same penalty applies for decapitating a pig as for decapitating its owner, you might as well behead the owner. Does that work for you?

  6. scifieye says:

    You don’t kill someone’s pet. If breaking up with them, you tell them as such. Community service? Compensation? Behavior modification therapy? Yes. But 50 years? Is there some law that says if you kill a pig you get 50 years? Agreed, this girl should not even have a boyfriend. I’m glad she didn’t cut off something else!

  7. theshawn says:

    It’s a pig are you flipping kidding me?? We let all kinds of aholes free who rape, kill and maim but killing a pig can get you 50 yrs??

    Why am I not surprised at the stupidity of the human race.

  8. Paul says:

    I eat pigs. I kill pigs. For food. Not for pleasure or to take pleasure. What she did is clearly unethical. There should be some kind of penalty, but certainly not 50 years. The action and the penalty are way way out sinc here.

  9. Walt Deal says:

    She should have save the head. There’s lots of great meat on it. The ears are also very tasty when fried. Use the rest for a “whole hog” bar-b-que. Those young ones a nice and tender.

    1. DannyDapper says:

      All joking aside, had she simply consumed the pig she’d probably just be charged with misdemeanor theft.

  10. DisturbedMary says:

    Speculation: Maybe she aborted his child sometime in their relationship. And after breaking up, she went after his beloved pigs in her anger.

  11. Victor says:

    Help! Piglet! Me!

  12. OkayWhatever says:

    As long as abortion is legal, I could give one damn about some piglet killed in anger, spite, or for food. Massively skewed priorities, folks.

  13. Barack Mugabe says:

    That would be 50 more years than Lorena Bobbitt got for decapitating John Bobbit’s piglet.

    1. GozieBoy says:

      I think she took the whole hog…!

  14. GD says:

    You could kill a person and be out in 5. This is stupid.

  15. SH says:

    Liberals came up with PETA and they are a special interest group so Holder and Obama will give them anything they ask for as long as they donate to the Libs.

  16. David Larkin says:

    Whether she killed the pig for food, fun or revenge, the result to the pig is exactly the same.

    1. Michael T says:

      Ham and eggs. THe chicken is involved but the pig is committed.

    2. ditchdigger2 says:

      About 40 lbs., MMMM. My wife and I raised hogs in the 70s, had a 700lb sow, named Sallie, only allow my wife and myself in the pen with her. Supplemeted her with blackbirds, ground squirrels and contails, jackrabits. Bad mistake, she ate every Chicken on the place, like a gator, lay dead still, they would peck right up her snout, then crunch. One of those PETA folks, depending on their weight, could have saved a substantial feed bill.

  17. fred says:

    Where I live wild pigs are considered a nuisance and can be killed without a permit. Most people don’t even harvest them. They just leave the carcass where it drops.

    1. ditchdigger2 says:

      Kalivornyka is like that, and getting worse.

    Cut of a baby pig s head go to prison suck out a human baby’s brains no one business but your own …….strange world

  19. THE TRUTH says:

    If she aborted a human baby there would be no problem though.

  21. Josh says:

    I just finished eating a pork roast and feel like I committed a crime.

    1. ditchdigger2 says:

      Never look back, I just finished a rib steak, warm, but still bleeding, of a hopefully dead stear, I’m wating for some”feeling”, waiting, wating, nope, just a full feeling, the taste of garlic, and a table wine. Tomorrow, onions, garlic, olive oil, sweet basil, and his, or her liver, Eat your heart out Vegin.

  22. Carl Curmudgeon says:

    Hell hath no fury,
    Like a woman scorned,
    Now they will hurry,
    While the piglet’s mourned,
    To jail his slayer,
    Ashley of the knife,
    Without a prayer,
    She took Porky’s life,
    Now she will do time,
    In a prison cell,
    She has done the crime,
    We don’t wish her well.

    1. Roger Dowd says:

      That’s great!! That’s beautiful poetry, Carl. It reminds me of Ham-let.

      1. ditchdigger2 says:

        I can smell what your cook’in.

  23. David Reed says:

    I would NEVER p*ss he off, that’s for certain.

  25. Humpy J. Brown says:

    What a stinking, putrid bag of estrogen this b*t*h is. Someone should lop off her fun bags and see how she handles it.

  26. Humpy J. Brown says:

    Hell hath no fury like a raging bag of female hormones.

  27. fred says:

    i like to see her decapitated

    1. RHO says:

      Over a pig? You may be insane.

      1. Humpy J. Brown says:

        And you may be an idiot. Every serial killer on record started out killing small animals first. Why don’t you get an education before you venture opinions on psychological matters upon which you’re not qualified to comment.

    2. ditchdigger2 says:

      We were talking of hogs, define.

  28. Ed says:

    Once again, it pays to do some research. It’s not just for killing the pig> “Fowler was charged with two counts of felony killing/maiming livestock, vandalism and felony possession of Adderall. Fowler also is accused of slashing the tires on the son’s pickup.”

    1. ditchdigger2 says:

      Maiming, abusing livestock should not be tolerated. Normal rugh handling of wild range stock is nesessarry for the stock and the handlers.

  32. StandingO says:

    Where’s the picture of Ashley? I’ll bet you can’t tell her apart from the piglets.

  33. Andrew P says:

    What a poorly reported article. It does not explain why such a harsh sentence is possible for her charges. The least they could do is list the charges and what each one carries. I guess it is CBS after all, so you can’t expect good reporting.

  34. Junnipersmippets says:

    Bet she has a sow -er look on her face!

  35. Some Guy says:

    If she got 50 years for one pig, how many years would Jimmy Dean get?

  36. Bob Hamilton says:

    There is no reporters name attached to this story, nor is there any other indication of where it came from. So we don’t know if the word “prank” was the reporters choice of words or the jilted girlfriend. Actually I don’t know if she was jilted or not and I am not going to re-read that story. I seriously doubt that there is a 50 year jail sentence for this pig murder. It sounds like the girlfriend is the one recovering from a head injury. Why isn’t Jon Corzine in jail now that someone mentioned it?

  37. Black Eagle says:

    Was the judge wearing a powdered wig? Will she serve the sentence in a prison-ship, down in the bilge? So I can go out an order up a rack of BBQ pork ribs and not face prison, but this woman will get years for no worse, other than to have deprived her ex of his property, and freaked him out? Who is more sadistic, the woman, or the Judge?

  38. Roger in NC says:

    50 years, just for makin’ bacon?

  39. spakky says:

    At least Eeyore was spared.

  40. amplitude jones says:

    we need to treat “breathing while democrat” as the capital crime it is- it is an abomination against all that is great good and American.

  41. Kenneth Glenn Koons says:

    Killing a pig. Yikes, 50 yrs. Killers, rapists, kidnappers, gangs , Mexican cartels, Islamofascists get….what , time off for good behavior??? The stupidity of evil liberal courts. This is simply inane. A fine, restitution but 5o yrs.? Insanity. Only a leftist idol worshiper could want this or perhaps PETA.

    People, it;s a frigggin PIG!

    1. Jon says:

      and you’re a freaking idiot!

  43. Chris Novrocki says:

    Anything other than the cost of the pigs and what they could have made from the pigs is fair game. If a judge gives this woman anything other than a few months in a padded room I think he should lose his job. Pigs are killed every day in the US. They are food!



  45. Roman Gregori says:

    I am planning a pig roast for TG. Is that a cannibalism now?

  46. forrest says:

    She’s probably an #Occupier too.

  47. UyeahU says:

    What is wrong with our country and the justice system? I don’t condone cruelty to animals, but there are people who kill another human being who get sentenced to less time. So you take a distraught 22 year old, in the process of a nasty relationship breakup and sentence her to 50 years? There are psychologists who say the adult brain is not even fully formed until 24-25. You have to be kidding! How about a fine and some therapy for anger and animal cruelty? Instead, her life is ruined and the taxpayers will foot the bill for how ever many years she serves. And cruelty aside, as far as pigs go, our country is overrun with the feral variety and I dare say many of the posters have had ham or bacon at least once this week.

  51. Jane in the making says:

    Sick woman. Serial killers start with animals. Anyone who can transfer anger and violence on to a living creature that has nothing to do with their problems is seriously ill and dangerous.

    1. janvones says:

      Yes, you got it. Thank god he didn’t have a baby sleeping at home. The crimes are breaking and entering, drug possession, and malicious killing of the man’s pets. This woman is a danger to society. People complaining that we eat pigs and that other criminals get off have severe deficits in logical thinking.

  52. Nicholas Fecteau says:

    DAMN! You can’t even get 50 years for killing a PERSON!

  53. Jim says:

    It’s a pig. She should have to pay for it, but so what? Fifty years in prison for killing an animal that is killed by the millions? What would she get for killing the boyfriend?

  54. anonymous says:

    This woman clearly has some mental illnesses. How sad for the family… to some pets are very important. 50 years sounds quite ridiculous but I do not want someone who beheads and stabs her ex’s pets out on the street.

  55. porcis_lover says:

    I’m for decapitating the b!tch, and that might occur in the joint. The point here is that our totalitarian State fosters a totalitarian culture. Let’s overthrow it. Let the streets flow with human blood.

  56. Jim says:

    To save the cost of the trial and the prison time, just let her go. Slaughtering pigs is an exact art that I’ll be glad to teach her. You have to hoist them up on a chain, cut the throat and if you can, it’s best to plunge them in boiling water first. It loosens the hide. All for a yummy chop. And frankly, so f-ing what? We don’t live in candy-land, folks. You want to change things, invest in vat grown meat research. Otherwise, shut up. Death and horrific suffering is part of life and in all of our futures. Grow up and grow a pair.

  57. Kevin Gregg says:

    50 years for killing a piglet? Of course not. Bad reporting. C’mon, CBS, get your act together.

  58. terry rohan says:

    mmmmmm baby back ribs, and my dogs love the pigs ears. make her work it off in a dairy farm fertilizing cows.

  59. Steve PA says:

    Woman should be punished, but we live in a twisted society. 50 years for beheading a piglet. No crime at all for aborting a baby. In fact, certain segments of society encourage this. So feel free to abort, but save the ;piglets, the whales, the turtles, the insects and the trees. But go right ahead and murder that fetus. Shame on us!

  66. American Eagle says:

    IF she had decapitated the boyfriend instead, she would be lionized and let go with a warning ticket.

  67. JdiddlyT says:

    I don’t know about Virginia law, but in Texas, since she beheaded the pig, and thus “slaughtered” it, the crime would be criminal mischief. However, stabbing the other and leaving it to suffer/die, would be the bigger crime. That may be the way it is in Virginia too, however, that doesn’t make a good headline.

  68. Climp Jones says:

    Too strange. Kinda like horse rustling

  69. PowerPC says:

    This is ridiculous! There are murderers of human beings that do not get sentenced to 50 years in prison. This is more political correctness run amok. You have people like PETA, SPCA and others that believe animals have the same reasoning ability as humans and assign human emotions to these animals. Pigs are processed daily for our food and they are hung on shackles by the feet and their throats are sliced so that they bleed to death. There is nothing humane or quick about it. Yet a woman who is obviously disturbed kills a pig by beheading it and she faces a fate that could include a 50 year prison sentence. This woman needs counseling to determine the extent of her mental issues. After that is complete then she can attend a court hearing with all of the facts known. Maybe by that time people’s emotions will cool down. Political Correctness is one of the major downfalls of this nation. No one can do anything without the thought police, the food police, the tobacco police and now the animal police….When will this insanity stop?

    I can safely gauge a an abrupt extinction of this civilization in our near future by this and other similar stories, humanity needs to get cremated with radiation when it loses touch with reality as is the case with ours, the gods aren’t stupid.

Should that ever happen. God forbid

  73. BW says:

    I’m not saying that murdering people is ok, but violently killing an animal, especially a baby animal, and causing it great pain is not ok. It, in no way, whatsoever can it defend itself against a human, people CAN fight back.
    BTW, I’m not a leftist wacko, I love bacon as much as anyone, but this is sick.
    Also, just my two cents on everyone making the Mike Vick reference: Also, I do not believe dog fighting is ok, but ask anyone who knows anything about dogs, Pit Bulls LIVE to fight. They love it more than anything. Thats what they have been bred for, for better or worse, over the last several hundred years.

  74. Mel says:

    Good. I’m glad someone see’s this crazy woman’s behaviour as psychotic. What might she have done to the puppy if it was his? Or a child if it were his?
    50 years is over the top but so what! It wasn’t just killing a baby was decapitating a pet and putting in out for all to see. Sick deserves it! Killing animals for food HUMANELY is one thing, decapitating a baby animal out of spite is PSYCHOTIC!

    When a country treats it’s pigs better than it’s babies – you know it is nearing it’s end.

    America will be under new management.

    I’m sure she will get full 50 years for that pig. Pigs are the sacred animals for the cops. Pig today – a law enforcement officer tomorrow.

  78. Mr. Piggy says:

    She completely bungled this caper, and for that reason should be locked away for a considerable amount of time. Enough to at least learn how to properly dispose of remains …

    Did you people even read the article?

    breaking and entering
    three counts of willful destruction of property
    one felony count of animal cruelty
    one fellony count possession of controlled substance

    This woman is deranged. A clear and present danger to society. Her boyfriend broke up with her and in response she committed a string of crimes against him and his family including the cruelest emtional punishment she could dream up short of killing a human, she killed one pet and grotesquely placed its severed head where it would be discovered by the owner and badly injured another pet such that it had to be euthanized.

    The person that committed these crimes should be removed from society. This wasn’t just a property crime this was an act by a seriously defective, violently cruel human being with no respect for the law. Put her away and throw away the key or better yet euthanize her like the pig she is.

    1. Occupy Gummint Skool says:

      What article?

  81. C. Banducci says:

    What a world…How come nobody ever says I guess it just didn’t work out. We ‘re supposed to date to find a spouse, but some relationships just don’t happen. I don’t know if there was some kind of abuse or not but this stuff is just over the top. On the other hand, 50 years for killing a pig is also way over the top. Everything is so extreme. Calm Down! Jeez

  82. Dave says:

    Really? My neighbor’s 9 year old boy stomped a kitten to death in park behind my house yesterday. The cops wouldn’t/couldn’t tell me what’s going to happen because it’s a juvenile case and the records will be sealed.

    Wonder what he’ll get more than a stern talking to……..

    Sick sick world….

  83. WagTheDog says:

    Sure it’s about the pig. It’s the psychotic animal fascists like you who have made this molehill into a mountain. BTW, currently, hurting someone’s feelings is a crime only in Britain.

  84. 1stManassas says:

    I wonder what other “head” she considered offing?

  85. Historian says:

    Fufty years for killing a freaking pig, Eight hundred bucks for severing the brain stem of a partially born human infant with a scalpel. Think about it.

  86. clothos says:

    I’m surprised she didn’t get the death penalty. After all, we have an oinker for a president, and a squealer as the VP. This could easily have been seen as an attack on the oval office.

  87. Connie says:

    Up to 50 years in prison? There has to be more to this woman’s background, or more to the story than this, to warrant a possible sentence like that. I find her behavior frightening, personally. People who can do things like this to animals usually have a psychosis lurking around in their minds. Keeping her out of normal society sounds like a good idea right now, while she gets her head examined. However, I am still stuck on the 50 years. We obviously are missing something in this story.

  88. Amy says:

    Anyone who decapitates and stabs anything smaller and more helpless and thinks it’s a prank is a sociopath who will move on to create havoc wherever s/he goes, and perhaps do worse latter in life. All of you who don’t get that are morons.

    So many people, so little ability to read! The pigs (Pleural, she effectively killed two, just one she really defiled) were support for a head injury victim (think like seeing eye dogs). There is also breaking and entering and drug charges. Put it together and put her away! now the points about her being punished worse than murderers, etc are all true, but you all would have to get off your lazy boy couches and VOTE to make a difference, and we all know THAT will not happen, most of you couldn’t even read past the slightly misleading title…

    “Sawyer’s mother told the Virginian-Pilot last year that the piglet’s head freaked her out when she let her puppy outside early one morning last February and saw it staring back at her.”

    revision needed, don’t make sense..

    1. CSI Chesapeake says:

      The meaning is obvious to anyone trained in crime scene forensics.

      In an effort to consume the sweet and tender gray matter, the puppy inserted its head into the pig’s severed skull.

      When it heard Sawyer’s mother, it turned suddenly, resulting in both the puppy and Winnie-the-Pooh’s dear little friend’s severed head staring back at her.

      Couldn’t possibly be clearer…

  91. John Budweiser says:

    Serial killers, and other sick people, are known to start out by killing small animals, such as pets. It would be a good idea to get a psychiatric review, and a few years incarcerated might save a human life.

  92. CC Coleman says:

    This woman may be mentally unbalanced. She might have been cruel and sick but anyone that thinks a 50 year sentence is appropriate is just as sick as she is.

  93. Bob says:

    Who wrote this blittering trash of an article?

    1. Gummint Skool Nomore says:

      BLITTER definition
      hardware, graphics
      /blit’r/ (Or ” raster blaster”). A special-purpose integrated circuit or hardware system built to perform blit (or ” bit bang”) operations, especially used for fast implementation of bit-mapped graphics.
      The Commodore Amiga and a few other microcomputers have these, but in 1991 the trend is away from them (however, see cycle of reincarnation).
      [ Jargon File]

      Perhaps you meant “blithering”?

  94. sylvie says:

    You know, one of the comments made a valid point. Women abort babies, but a woman gets 50 years for beheading a piglet? Really? I am sure there is more to this story, and I would think that the justice system would be more interested in getting this woman some help with her mental health, instead of throwing her into prison for taxpayers to pay her room and board for 50 years! I think women who abort their babies when we have sufficient birth control options now that can prevent the need to kill their children need mental health help too. Oh yes, the argument always goes out to the extreme cases, such as rape and incest whenever trying to address this subject, and I find grabbing for those particular straws to keep up the murder of millions of babies insufficient to make their case. If you don’t want to have babies, then stop murdering them because your too lazy to take your birth control, just get sterilized!

  95. TJP says:

    What she did was horrible, but why the heck is she up for 50 years for killing an ANIMAL when people get out after a few years in prison for killing HUMANS? At most, she should get a few months and a hefty fine.

  96. anywho says:

    The liberals are reviving biblical Paganism – in which animals are worshiped and humans are sacrificed to appease them.

  97. kishke says:

    No one should have to spend a single day in jail for killing an animal. She should be required to pay restitution and perhaps a fine, nothing more. The law is entirely unjust.

    1. Speaknup says:

      You are spot on. Our legal system took a turn into the twilight zone many years ago. Between our lunatic lawmakers and our activist judges, common sense doesn’t stand a chance any more.

  98. semus says:

    This is ridiculous, this woman needs a shrink more than she needs prison,

  99. Me says:

    All you women who are raving about leniency are the same women who would be crying for someone’s head had this been a man. I hope the wench gets 50 years. It’s about time women start receiving the same sentences as men.

  100. viv says:

    I am anti-abortion, but it has nothing to do with this woman’s cruelty toward another living creature. I hope she gets the 50 years. God forbid he has a kid, goes through post-partum depression and decides to behead her child because it “freaked her out”. Lock her up.

  101. Aj says:

    She isn’t getting ANY time in prison! This is just a jackarse headline to get your attention. It’s a friggin pig. Nothing but a slap and a fine.

  102. Pat F says:

    So let me get this right. She faces about the same amount of time for killing the pig that she would have faced if she just killed the boyfriend?

  103. sean patriot says:

    Isn’t it ironic that she killed a locked up pig and is now locked up by pigs?

  104. tastyanimals says:



  105. ReecyRoo Mullenax says:

    Are you kidding me???!!! This psycho could get 50 yrs. for killing a pig but all of these parents killing their kids gets a slap on the wrist or even walk free???! This world is sooooo phucked up!!! The end is near folks, mark my words!

  106. Erin says:

    This was a PET. She deliberatly went into this man’s home, tortured and killed his PET as a prank. Never forget violent cirminals and people with serious mental disturbances usually begin with animals before moving on to humans. This was deliberatly done to torment the young man and his family. Plus she had an illegal prescription for Adderall. Its an amphetamine that changes the chemical structure of the brain. sorry guys but I disagree – this woman is a threat to society. She needs to be in jail.

    1. Farmer Bob says:

      So you recommend putting her in prison for 50 years as a sort of preemptive strike? To get her now because *you’re* sure that her next stop after pigs is humans? What a novel legal concept. “I sentence you to 50 years, not because of the crime you’ve committed but because of the crime you will commit.”

  107. Farmer Bob says:

    I decapitated a liberal once but it didn’t have much effect. It doesn’t take a head to run around screaming things like, “a woman’s choice,” and “pigs are people, too.”

  108. Speaknup says:

    Seriously, that’s more than most people get for murder. By the way, how is beheading a piglet any different than slaughtering one for food?(aside from meanness.) Essentially the woman is getting 50 years for meanness. Do you suppose that falls under “cruel and unusual” punishment?

  109. Manjit Singh says:

    I believe justice has been served here. 50 years seems too long though. My probelm is that what about millions of pigs, cows, turkeys, crabs, chickens and other creatures that get killed and eaten everyday? If we give rights to dogs, cats and horses, what about other creatures rights who are killed everyday for sports, food, scientific research, cosmetic and medicinal products? Who judges those people and when is that justice served? I think the World needs an organization called “Global Creatures Rights” not just “Animal Rights”.

  110. Bob Hamilton says:

    Is “piglet” another name for thingy?

  111. Mark Carlton says:

    That’s pretty much a life sentence. If she’s lucky, she’ll get at least one juror who has some common sense.

  112. lee says:

    She should have killed a child or someone’s nice old grandmother. She probably would have gotten off much more lightly. What further proof does anyone need to acknowledge that we have allowed common sense to be supplanted by an insane political correctness?

  113. Howard Feinski says:

    At first I thought maybe she sawed off her boyfriend’s little twisty pony tail while he was asleep or something.

  114. Brian Macker says:

    Fifty years for killing a pig. I’m having ham for Xmas. I’m an accessory to murder, and a conspirator in not only beheading the pig but dismembering it to. I too will be leaving pig parts around the house for shocking discovery. In fact I plan to place these parts in front of my children. I need to do at least 25 years, if not 75.

  115. Larry from Phoenix, AZ says:

    The punishment does not fit the crime. One day of community service should be the most she should serve. What’s the difference between what she did and what’s happening in slaughter houses all across the country??

    1. Mohamed says:

      What she did is DV plain and simple. A pig in a slaughterhouse is not someones pet and the guy who owns the pig does not feel sick when the pig is killed

  116. August says:

    Hormel brutally kills pigs way worse that what this gal did for its SPAM lunch meats; I watched the slaughter once, not a pretty sight!

  117. Crewfeet says:

    Poor judgement to take the head first. Better to take a leg. When a pig means that much to you, you just don’ eat it all at one time.

  118. Brian Macker says:

    The only time I expect to hear “She got 50 years for killing that pig” is when hippies are talking with each other about killing a police officer.

  119. travis says:

    thank god they didn’t have any children she would have tried to go after them
    sounds like she is very mentally unstable to purposefully kill someones pet to get revenge on them. they were just innocent pets they didn’t do anything to her
    what a mean hateful person.

  120. floristJoe says:

    What happens to all the people who choose to have ham on Thanksgiving?

  121. Mohamed says:

    For those who are saying it is just a pig and rapists etc get less, remember this is an act of domestic violence. Not one of animal cruelty. She killed the pig to mentally and emotionally torture the guy. In my book, that definitely qualifies as DV. If a guy killed his gf’s dog or cat, he would also be charged with dv and would be facing a similar prison sentence

    I agree with you, but please look at yonex badminton rackets.
