A woman has been branded the "most despicable excuse for a human being" after she allegedly drowned her chihuahua and then beat its lifeless body.
Erica Black, 32, took her defenceless pet into the swimming pool and then held her underwater, before later filming the dead animal on live stream.
She was caught by "disgusted" cops after her roommate handed in shocking CCTV footage of the attack in Florida.

Sheriff Wayne Ivy exposed the evil owner online as he described the video as "the most horrific thing I've ever seen in my life."
It showed Black holding her Chihuahua in her arms as she strolled into the pool. She then bent down and put the pooch under the water as it struggled on camera.
The cop didn't show the second half of the video, but alleged that Black let the body float in the pool before she slammed her on the deck four times.
He said the second part was "too graphic" and mad him feel "sick."
Brevard County Sheriff's Office claimed she left the canine's body on the sofa for four days and then live-streamed it on social media.
Black has been charged with animal cruelty however, she was already being held with a $150,000 ( £123,540.67) bond for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, reports Newsweek.

On a video on social media, Ivy said "there is a special place in hell" for people like Black and said it was an "act against humanity."
"If I hear she has as much as a pet rock, I will lose my crap, because this woman doesn't deserve to have anything. She deserves to rot in jail," said Ivy.
The pet owner has had a further $15,000 ( £12,354.08 ) added to her bond by the judge.
