US woman 'hangs dog for chewing Bible'

A WOMAN has been charged with animal cruelty after she hanged her nephew's pit bull from a tree with an electrical cord and burned its body because the dog chewed her Bible, police say.
Animal control officers said 65-year-old Miriam Smith told them she killed a female dog named Diamond because it was a "devil dog" and she was worried it might harm neighbourhood children.

Authorities said bond wasn't immediately set for Mrs Smith, who remains jailed in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, US after her arrest at the weekend.

She faces 180 days to five years in prison if convicted.

Authorities say the dog's remains were found under a pile of grass with part of an electrical cord around its neck.
