Puppy drowned in bath by 'barbaric' burglars

Some sick people out there

A seven-month old puppy was drowned in a bath by burglars who broke into a house in Norfolk, police said.

Cockapoo Benji was in the property in Cobholm Close, Gorleston, at the time of the break-in on Wednesday afternoon.
His owner Mark Phillips, 40, said the burglars' actions were "barbaric" and he had been "in hysterics" when he found his pet in the bath.

"They'd have to be sick, or twisted, or both, to do that," he said. Police said it was a "particularly cruel crime".

"Steal the dog, take him - but to do what they did was barbaric," Mr Phillips said.

Apart from it being barbaric, it makes no sense.
If you want to burgle in and out with the least fuss. Maybe the wee dog was barking and they wanted him gone so that they could continue their nefarious activities.

But despicable, horrible, sadistic times ten at every level.
If I were the owner and caught the barstards......
