Republican candidate Mike Huckabee was on Larry King Live and he responded to Larry's question about animal cruelty charges against his son by defending his son's minor age at the time and said his son went on to receive his Eagle Scout award. It is well documented that children who commit acts of cruelty against animals show a propensity to commit violence against people as adults. The link above explains how Mike Huckabee's son was involved in the hanging of an emaciated stray dog at a boy scout camp.

Then, instead of apologizing for his son's cruel and depraved act of cruelty to an innocent and suffering creature, he loosely used the dog fighting analogy to describe his tenacity and determination to become the President. Bush used this same dog fighting analogy during his campaign. Just what we need, another Bush! Animal advocates across the nation are tirelessly fighting to end dog fighting and Huckabee is using the violent act of dog fighting to describe his character? Does anyone see a correlation between religion and animal cruelty?

Huckabee Squashed Charges Against His Son For Stoning, Hanging Dog

By: Logan Murphy on Sunday, December 16th, 2007 at 12:40 PM - PST

Lambert over at Corrente noticed this little tidbit that Mike Huckabee definitely doesn't want to have brought up:

Here's the barebones story of how 18-year-old Mike Huckabee's son, David, and 17-year-old Clayton Frady killed a dog when they were Boy Scouts, and got fired for it. From the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in 1998 (as quoted in DogBlog):

[David Huckabee,] the younger son of Gov. Mike Huckabee and another teen were fired last month from jobs at a Boy Scout camp after the killing of a stray dog.[..]

So, how and why did David Huckabee (and Clayton Frady) kill the dog?

The original story isn't clear in the lead (the admissions and the details come as you read down). Still from the Democrat Gazette:

The dog was killed [passive voice] July 11 at Camp Pioneer near Hatfield.[..]

I believe the following is the faxed description of the "particular process." It's on a reputable site, Utopia Animal Rescue, which is run by, of all people, Kinky Freidman:

(Miller County, Arkansas) Two boy scout counselors, 17 year old Clayton Frady and 18 year old David litickabee [sic], the son of Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, have admitted to catching a stray dog during their summer session at Camp Pioneer in Hatfield, AR, and hanging the dog by his neck, slitting his throat and stoning him to death.

Lambert notices that Michael Isikoff�s coverage of the story for Newsweek is particularly lacking in investigative curiosity on how David Huckabee killed the dog, which as you can see above, really does color the event.

Digby's on top of this too. The Huckster's son seems to be a real winner and his father tried to cover up his sick, twisted behavior -- the same kind of behavior that landed former NFL star Michael Vick in prison.

A few other things that Huckabee said about animals was this about duck hunting in heaven: a_bit_more_about_animals_and_r.html

And this about angels intervening in his elk hunting pursuits: 2007/12/6477_does_huckabee_b.html?src=email&link=hed_20071210_ts4_Huckabee's%20Weird(est%3F)%20Speech%20Revisited
