Police arrest mother after son kills neighbour’s dog
WHO to blame? Desiree Gillard, 41, of Spring in Texas has been charged with child abandonment. Why? Becaues her 11-year-old son allegedly deliberatly drowned their neighbour’s dog.
Patricia Martin recorded on CCTV the child taking her dog. Police say the child admitted that he stole it, choked it unconscious and drowned it in a hot tub at a nearby empty home.
Desiree Gillard had left the boy alone. She’d gone to Buffalo, Texas to pick up her husband after his truck broke down. She told police she had not time to take him along with her “because she was in a hurry”.
“It’s not normal to kill, to kill animals. I miss my son. I want him home. He doesn’t belong there. He’s not a gun-toting gangbanger. He’s 11 years old.”
If only he were a gangster…
