A Florida woman has been charged after deputies say she held her Chihuahua under the water in a pool, then slammed its body on the pool deck. The details of this story or horrific.
In a social post on Thursday, Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivy described 32-year-old Erica Black as a “disgusting individual.”
“This woman, Erica Black, is without question the most despicable excuse for a human being I’ve ever seen in my life,” he said.
The sheriff said that Black was already in the county jail for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon after she stabbed a 68-year-old man twice.
However, Ivy said the video of Black killing “Sadie, “the dog, was recorded in October of last year and was the most horrific thing he has ever seen in his life.
“There is a special place in hell for this woman. Until she gets there, she’s going to rot in our jail,” the sheriff said.
While the first bond was set at $150,000, a judge gave her another bond of $15,000 for the assault and a charge of Animal Crulety.
The department did not release the full video of the incident – brought to them by Black’s roommate – but the camera showed when she held the dog underneath the water for several minutes.
Sadie is seen struggling before lifelessly floating in the pool.
Ivey said that Black records the body of the Chihuahua, then slams the dog’s body on the pool deck four different times.
According to Ivy, Black left the dog’s body on the sofa for several days and went on a live stream, holding up the body.
“So disgusting, it makes me sick, I’m telling you this woman, if I hear as much as that she has a pet rock, I will lose my crap because this woman doesn’t deserve to have anything. She deserves to rot in jail,” said Ivery.
“She is a despicable human being. She’s not only committed an act of animal cruelty, but an act against humanity, This woman is disgusting,” said Ivey.
As Ivery walked Black into jail he said to her, “You know, usually when I’m walking people in I have something to say to them. I’m disgusted by you. You looking like you’re all sad and stuff. How you think that dog felt when you were holding it under the water?”
