Things Go Too Far

Alright, now this is just depraved.

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican drug gunmen tortured and murdered a rival then shot dead his dog and dumped it on top of his corpse in one of the most brutal killings of a three-year-old war between cartels.

The killers apparently drove the man's truck over his head before leaving his body in a street in the state of Michoacan with a menacing note to his relatives nailed to his chest.

The viciousness of the attack surprised even Michoacan residents hardened to daily bloodshed.

"To kill someone's dog is pretty rare," local journalist Sergio Cortes said on Wednesday.

The "menacing note" is really kind of gilding the lily here.
