That Dog.

It’s pretty hard to imagine the kind of person who 1) goes into a fit of rage that Cricket, their 14-month-old puppy, is not yet trained properly to hunt, and then 2) rather than deciding to train the pup more, or find another home for it, decides to SHOOT THE PUP.

Who could do something like that? Well, we don’t have to wonder, because this pup-killer (and also goat-killer) has proudly admitted to this monstrous behavior in her upcoming memoir.

It’s Kristi Noem (R), Governor of South Dakota.

Supposedly, this admission is something she’s done to ingratiate herself with Donald Trump, who is looking for a Vice-Presidential running mate, since the last one didn’t take kindly to demands to subvert the will of the American people and overturn the 2020 Presidential election.

It’s a head-shaker, for sure. RIP, little Cricket.
