WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -– For many people our pets are like our family and we mourn their loss very difficulty. What would you do if your dog was brutally killed?

Friday, Cory Morgan Gray, 24, allegedly strangled his girlfriend’s six-pound Chihuahua while she was in class at Cape Fear Community College.

“I found him there, and I found little Charlie. He just looked like so in pain and so tense, and he just looked so pitiful and helpless,” said Jenna Branham, the dog’s owner.

Gray was booked on preliminary charges of felony cruelty against animals. After spending one hour in jail Gray was released on a $5,000 secure bond.

“If Charlie had been a person, it would be murder, but it’s not. It’s animal cruelty,” Donna Branham said. “It’s not animal cruelty. It’s animal murder. He murdered this dog.”

The Branham family is trying to raise awareness about animal cruelty cases such as this by starting an online petition to strengthen animal cruelty laws.

I agree with your post 100%. Hundreds, if not thousands of hogs and cows are slaughtered daily. Where are all these SO-CALLED animal lovers when these animals are being lined up to be killed, they are animals too!!!!

Wow…such ignorance. You must not have been around an educated diverse population where doctors, lawyers, teachers, etc have dreads. You show how limited you are by your comments. There are people who keep their dreads neat and clean, regardless of race. Stop stereotyping, instead experience and learn about other cultures and you won’t be making general, bias statements as the one above. Best wishes for you.

“The dog was left in his crate, this bum went and got him out of his crate to kill him.”

“Cory was the only person in the house from what I was told, so thatleaves cory or cory?”

How do you know he took him out of his crate and killed him if he were the only person there? If there were others there to witness him doing it, or a nanny cam/video of him doing it, then you’d have more of a leg to stand on. Who says Cory didn’t have a friend over while everyone was gone? Who knows if the dog wasn’t dead before Cory was left alone with it? You only “know” what you’ve heard. You weren’t there, you don’t even know if Cory was really there. You don’t know anything because everything is hearsay.
