|"Big Boy" had to be euthanized.|
First we had Bryan Hutcherson of Oshkosh, who starved his pit pull to death because feeding it was just too stressful. Now we have an unnamed 13-year-old in Milwaukee being investigated for beating a little dog with a stick, dousing it with gasoline, and setting it on fire.
Tyrone Skinner and Clarissa Burnette had given the miniature pinscher, named "Big Boy," to their kids two years ago as a present.
They let the little dog out for a run on April 9, and never saw it again.

Animal control had to euthanize the poor thing because it was beaten and burned so badly. And animal lovers held a candlelight memorial for the dog on Sunday.
"I loved him; he was the best dog ever," 11-year-old Josephine Burnette told WISN.
How do you explain such a cold-heated attack on a defenseless animal like that to a little kid? Maybe the 13-year-old kid arrested in the case on Saturday has a good explanation.
