Southport, FL (The Weekly Vice) - Tina Sandlin, a 35-year-old Florida woman was jailed Tuesday after she allegedly cut off the head of a family's pet rabbit in front of two horrified children.
According to the Bay County Sheriff's Office, Sandlin called two children out of their bedrooms on July 15, held their pet rabbit by its ears and then used a knife to cut off the animal's head while the children watched.
Investigators say the children were so upset, it took a while for them to share with their father what had happened.
Deputies were sent to a Southport residence to Tuesday to question Sandlin, however she was hiding under a mobile home on Newman Point Road when they arrived. Sandlin was eventually pulled out from under the mobile home and taken into custody.
Sandlin (who also goes by Tina Byng) was booked into the Bay County Jail and charged with two counts of child abuse/affliction of mental cruelty, felony cruelty to animals and resisting an officer without violence.
