McAllen, Texas – In an odd case of Hispanic-on-Pomeranian violence, a 35-year old man is being charged with arson after he doused a small puppy with fuel and ignited the dog inside his girlfriend’s house. The flaming Pomeranian ran about the apartment, and set alight some fuel that the man had spilt on the floor. That fire then burnt the man, his girlfriend, and part of the house’s interior.
The man is being treated for severe burns over much of his body, and once an arrest warrant has been issued, could face attempted murder, aggravated assault, and animal cruelty charges. The Pomeranian also survived the attack, coming away with little or no injury.
