A Sarasota, Florida, man was jailed Sunday and charged with aggravated animal cruelty for pouring hot sauce on a yelping puppy.

Police responded to a report of animal cruelty and when they arrived at the scene a local woman said her boyfriend, Ephrian Myles, 47, had poured hot sauce all over her three-month-old Dachshund/Chihuahua puppy “Gizmo,” after becoming irritated by Gizmo’s yelping. Gizmo has a history of seizures and was suffering one at the time of the hot sauce incident, the woman said.

Gizmo’s eyes were swollen shut and his breath had become labored due to irritation from the hot sauce, The Tampa Tribune reports. The woman took him to a fire station where officers washed him and gave him to Animal Services. Gizmo is expected to make a full recovery.

Myles is being held on $5,000 bond.

What a POS.  I think someone should pour hot sauce on this guy so he can see how it feels.  Fair is fair.


"That's one way to make a hot dog"??  Are you kidding me?  Author of this article must think this story is funny.


Idiotic comment about Trayvon Martin below, by the way.  What pouring hot sauce on a puppy's eyes, etc. has to do with a self-defense/murder case is beyond me.

Wonderful justice. 

Someone, the judicial system  is at least speaking for the puppy.


Treyvon Martin must be wondering why he was not born a puppy.


If you kill a black teenager, you walk and claim  victim-hood.

You have made enough hot dogs already, why do you want to make another one. Pettiness of the worst kind..

@MikePatterson   we reflect, don't  we on the ironies of life. If you cant see the irony in this maybe check your left and right  frontal lobe again.
