Man accused of beheading dog made video
so here's another animal cruelty story. Obviously, this Gomez guy thought the way to win back his girlfriend was to cut off her dog's head with a chainsaw. Who can do stuff like this and not pause to think "I'm killing a dog"?
This is a hard-news, brief style. Maybe there'll be more on it later. Even for a brief, given the subject matter, it could have been done with more flair. Adding in the girl's grandmother was good as a source. I'm sure this was written pretty quickly and one of the reporter's main challenges was deciding what absolutely needed to be in there. This is no doubt always a pain, cuz there's those times where you've got a great little bit of writing or a great quote but it just doesn't make the cut. That's what one of my teachers refers to as "drowning your kittens" - it's tough, and you hate it but ultimately you have to do it.
(NOTE) Ah! this is actually a follow-up. apparently before they found out it was this gomez guy, they were offering a 10,000 dollar reward for info about the case. This first article from march 16 has all the better narrative details and hits home the news better.
