- DEATH SCENE: Dog’s blood in Marianna.
Witnesses say a Marianna animal control officer beat a stray dog to death last weekend. The police contend that the dog was already dead when picked up. (The photo above shows the dog’s blood on a sidewalk near a Sonic where witnesses saw the encounter.) It’s set off quite a controversy.
A Facebook page has popped up to condemn the action and has drawn hundreds of participants.
A University of Memphis journalism student, Chelsea Boozer, was drawn to the case by the Facebook page and did her own reporting on the story. Her story is on the jump.
