In the News We Don't Like to Report Department, a Dachshund named 'Oscar' who hailed from Snellville, Georgia, has met his fate after his naked humans fed him LSD that was placed into a gummy worm. You can't make this stuff up, which is why this story has gone viral:
A dog was hit by a car Sunday night after its owners gave it a gummy worm laced with LSD, police said.Snellville police Capt. Harold Thomas said Monday that officers initially responded to the Pinehurst Road home of Nicholas Modrich and Jamie Hughes at about 8 p.m. after neighbors reported seeing the couple running down the street naked.
When police arrived, Modrich and Hughes opened the door and were "obviously on something," Thomas said. Modrich was wearing nothing but socks and Hughes was topless as they told police they had given LSD to "Oscar" and he was missing.
Oscar turned out to be their daschund.
Officers quickly learned that Oscar had been struck by car on a nearby street when Modrich's mother and younger brother showed up at the scene. The dog, whose condition was unclear Monday, was taken by Gwinnett County Animal Control after it bit them.
The suspects will likely face drug charges and officials are weighing reckless conduct and animal cruelty charges, Thomas said.
"I've been doing this for 31 years," Thomas said. "This is a first."
Initial reports indicated that Oscar was taken for follow-up veterinary care and was recovering, but reports today indicate that he has been euthanized.
