Hawaii men charged of eating dog

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I read this news from the Daily Sentinel today which talked about this Two former golf club employees who have been charged with theft and cruelty to animals in the death of a pet dog. The dog owners say was cooked and eaten.

An Oahu grand jury indicted Saturnino Palting, 58, and Nelson Domingo, 43, both of Kalihi after the Moanalua Golf Club fired them as maintenance workers.

They were charged with stealing a dog owned by Frank Manuma and his wife, Debbie Weil-Manuma. The 8-month-old German shepherd-Labrador mix named Caddy had been tied up near a maintenance shed on Dec. 16 while Frank Manuma played a round of golf.

Manuma says police told him the two men butchered and ate his pet. The charges were both felonies punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Wow! What a great punishment for those two accused men. I think they deserve it. I remember back home in the Philippines couple of years ago men, specially drunkards love to eat dogs which is horrible. They only stopped doing it until the animal rights have been imposed in the country. When I read this story and came across with those names involved in the crime made me wonder if those men were Filipinos coz their names sound familiar and common to a Filipino.
