While it is said there are seven wonders of the world, we have decided to propose an eighth: Florida. That’s right, the Sunshine State never ceases to amaze us, and these two stories are no exception.

Tragically, some Floridians are heartless individuals. Police are searching for a man in the St. Petersberg area for intentionally running over and killing a dog.

A person who witnessed the incident on Monday said the driver turned the vehicle and chased the dog, who was “running for its life.”

The 6-year-old Jack Russell terrier, Snoopy, was known to freely leave the home of its owner, Paul Alves, but would always return.

When Snoopy didn’t return for over an hour, Alves became concerned.

“He’s usually pretty good,” Alves told the Tampa Bay Times.

Whenever he’s gotten out, he sort of just pokes around in the alley for a little bit and then comes back.”

Alves went out to look for Snoopy, when he saw his neighbor and his children standing over the dog’s lifeless body.

Police said the driver of the dark colored sedan seems to have purposefully stuck the dog.

“It appears the driver intentionally struck this dog,” police spokesman Mike Puetz said.

“At this point [police] would just like to interview the driver in order to determine their intent.”

The sickening incident was recorded on a neighbor’s security camera and police hope that will help catch the driver.

In a parallel universe, which coincidentally also is hosted by Florida, an Escambia County man was killed after a dog jumped into the driver’s seat of a vehicle and ran him over.

Iris H. Fortner, 56, and James W. Campbell, 68, both of Cantonment, were returning to their Desoto Road home about 10:20 AM Monday when the incident occurred.

Campbell exited the passenger side of a 1995 Chevy van Fortner was backing into their property on Desoto Road. As Campbell was opening the residence’s double metal gates, Fortner opened the driver’s side front door to look for Campbell “to see what side of the double gate he was standing on,” the FHP report stated.

Then, Fortner’s large boxer bull dog jumped into the driver’s side compartment, and pressed the accelerator, causing the vehicle to back into Campbell, according to FHP.

Fortner tried to stop the vehicle, but wasn’t able to until Campbell was trapped under the front right of the van.

He was pronounced dead on the scene by Escambia County paramedics, according to the report.

Maybe the dog heard of his fallen canine comrade and decided to wage war against the human race.
