South Carolina — A South Carolina woman is claiming an act of canine cruelty was simply an act of divine intervention.
Miriam Fowler Smith, 65, told cops on Monday that she hung and burned her nephew’s pit bull after the animal took a bite out of her bible.
She claimed God urged her to kill Diamond, a 1-year-old female dog, because the animal was a “devil dog” and would hurt neighborhood children.
Smith was arrested on Sunday and remains in Spartanburg County jail. She could face faces 180 days or up to five years behind bars if she’s convicted with felony animal cruelty.
She does not have a lawyer yet.
