Florida Man Cooked His Mom's Puppy

Categories: WTF Florida

Florida is so full of inhumane crimes that it really takes something truly heartless to make us shudder. Let's just say we hope there's a special place in hell for Thomas Elliot Huggins.

The 25-year-old Tampa man is accused of killing and then cooking his own mother's puppy.

According to WTSP, Huggins allegedly strangled his mother's 5-to-6-month old pit bull mix puppy on Thursday morning. He then cut the poor animal into quarters.

When a family member learned what Huggings had done, they called police. Investigators found the pup's ribs boiling in a pot on the stove. The animal's head was in the garbage can, and the rest of the remains were stored in the freezer, apparently for future meals.

One officer told the news station that the animal was "expertly" cut into pieces, and they believe it may not be the first time Huggings has done something like this.

He was arrested on charges of animal cruelty, and is currently being held on $2,000 bail.

Wow $2,000 bail... they sure showed him.

Maybe the courts should start taking this animal cruelty thing seriously.

Wow speechless this makes me ashamed to be a floridian resident. I might just have to move from this state, let alone I cant even find a job in this crazy state. And the people that are getting hired probably are sickos like this guy.

There should be equality of animals and human rights when it comes to atrocities of this magnitude.  This man is not well and should be restrained from society.

I wanna hear more of the man's real situation ? He might be a 3rd worlder and this practice might be acceptable in his culture ? I know Haitians hunt feral cats, so it is what it might be on the surface. He may be Santeria ? That is the group that believes in living sacrifices ?

The charge against him is animal cruelty.

What if he did not make the animal suffer? One officer said the animal was "expertly cut," so who knows. Maybe the guy is an expert butcher. We eat cows, pigs, lambs and chickens like popcorn. What difference would it make?

Will they be able to make the charges stick?

Now, that's about the legal side of the issue. Just the idea of eating dog meat makes me wanna puke. He should be charged for being a d!ck to his mom, if there's any way to make that illegal.

The Judge missed at least 3 Zero's on the Bail Amount.

And this is why they should have been sent back to Africa like Lincoln wanted to do after he freed them from slavery.

his picture makes him look so proud of himself, as if he's thinking "yes, fellow Floridians, i did this for us. :) you're welcome."

$2000 bail and that's supposed to keep him locked away....what a joke of a justice system in Florida. Lock his ass up and throw away the key. He probably is practicing for the mutilation of humans.

Good thing he didn't cook Trevon. Florida is the place to go for Movie Plots. Hollywood knows this.

Well if he wants to eat the dog, why not?

I will eat just about anything. I have a pet rabbit and I have eaten rabbit but I won't eat my pet rabbit. This was a pet, not his pet and a puppy. If this guy was raising dogs as food and got caught I would still be disgusted but I wouldn't have the same reaction. Pitbulls would not be a good source of meat as the animal is too muscular. Even veal is older than 5 or 6 mos when it's slaughtered. So no, I'm not upset because puppies are cute I'm upset because this is wrong on many levels.

Like the guy said on faces of death after they cooked a puppy! I can't complain in other cultures they worship cows but we eat them and after trying I couldn't help but ask for seconds!

He should remain in jail or why don't we cut him into pieces

Always wonder why dogs take precedence over lambs, piglets, calfs. It's not like dogs are any more sentient, smarter, or have more capacity for love than the others. If this story pisses you off and you're not a vegan, then, you're a hypocrite.
