Colorado Man Stomps Puppy To Death on Christmas Eve To Punish Girlfriend For Not Answering His Calls

Christopher Blackstone, 25, seems intent to make the worst people of 2010 year before time runs out. Upset that his girlfriend, Talitha Peterson-Hooks, 25, left their apartment during an argument and then refused to take his calls, he proceeded to stomp her puppy to death and sent her a text message saying “If you would have answered your phone, your dog would still be alive.”


This occurred 4 a.m. Christmas Eve and Peterson-Hooks returned to find the 3 to 5 months old puppy beaten to death.

She had previously secured protective orders against Blackstone, but later dropped domestic violence charges and resumed their relationship.

He has been charged with felony cruelty to animals and criminal mischief (for causing over $1,000 damage to the patrol car). According to Gazette, he is also charged with felony criminal mischief after trying to kick his way out of a police patrol car.

We have seen these cases before of people using animals to vent their anger. The problem is that these case often result in relatively short and inconsistent sentences.

  2. mafoster,

    Niger is a country and you are a … gosh, what’s the word I’m looking for …

  3. while I don’t agree with Tucker Carlson’s punishment, I do believe that this creep should be spending some serious time in jail. If he isn’t put in jail, his ex-girl friend is probably next on his sick list.

  4. As would a couple of cement blocks shackled to his ankle and a deep river, but that’s just me. I don’t see much hope of civil redemption once someone crosses the line in this manner, this is just a prevue of things to come IMO.

  5. The idea of harsher sentencing for this sort of crime strikes me as senseless. People who are so emotionally out of control will not be deterred by the future consequence of their immediate violence. Mandatory anger management seems to be a better choice to me.

  6. Buckeye,

    Exactly! Why didn’t she take the puppy with her when she left? Obviously hindsight is of no value to this woman.
