The Petside Digest: Your Dog and Cat News for This Week!Published November 11, 2011
Nick Cannon Fake Kills Dog: Petside
We'll start this week's Digest off with a mind-boggling story. Apparently, celebrity radio host Nick Cannon decided it'd be a good idea to pull a prank...where he faked killing his co-host's dog.
Cannon's sick publicity stunt involved pretending to tie his co-host's dog to a group of balloons and float it over the Hudson River in New York.
Obviously, this is a sick hoax. Who knows how many numbskulls may have been inspired to actually try this in the real world.
