Woman convicted, husband on trial for attack on gay couple walking pink poodle

Saturday, February 1, 2014

BEAVERTON, Ore. — A jury in Oregon has convicted a 23-year-old woman for her role in the attack last year on a gay couple who were walking their pink-dyed pink poodle.

"Beauty" was dyed pink for Easter.

“Beauty” was dyed pink for Easter.

The jury of 12 people found Saraya Sophia Lisa Gardner guilty on one count of obstruction of justice, reported The Oregonian.

The verdict comes as jury selection began in the trial of her husband, 23-year-old George Allen Mason Jr., who is charged with the more serious offense of a hate crime for allegedly punching David Beltier of Beaverton, Ore., and striking him on the back of the head with a metal tool.

Police say Mason and Gardner had hurled anti-gay slurs at Beltier and his boyfriend, Jeremy Mark, as they crossed the street in front of Mason’s SUV with their dog, Beauty, whose fur had been dyed pink with Kool-Aid for Easter.

“Honestly, I feel like the pink poodle provoked him,” Beltier said. “We weren’t holding hands or anything. Just walking the dog like normal.”

When police went to investigate the attack – one Beltier feared could have easily ended his life – they met with Gardner who they say lied about her husband’s whereabouts.

Mason could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted; Gardner’s sentencing is scheduled for May 12.

  5. as an Oregonian…I am ashamed of how this couple was treated. Especially considering that Oregon is supposed to be the state filled with progressive hippy types. I speak mainly sadly though only of the cities Portland and Eugene…anywhere else in this state is like a scene out of Deliverance.

    Posted on Saturday, February 1, 2014 at 6:25pm
  11. Same reason you'd dye your hair pink, I suspect. For the attention. And dogs usually love all sorts of attention. (Not the attacking kind.)

    Posted on Saturday, February 1, 2014 at 6:28pm
  23. The fur was dyed with Kool Aid so no more ill effect than the teenager down the street who does the same thing.

    Replied on Saturday, February 1, 2014 at 7:08pm
  29. I have dogs and I will dock the tails myself at 2days old. I also do the dew claw so it won't get caught up on stuff and rip at their legs. The tail docking is because of the breed or in my case because I do not like a tail in my face...

    Replied on Saturday, February 1, 2014 at 7:29pm
  30. Jennie docking should only be done by a vet, i cannot believe you say you cut your dogs tails off because you don't like them in your face, as an animal rescue worker I've seen some awful crop and dock jobs done on animals you deserve to have your dogs removed seeing as you cut off parts of their bodies that you find irritating!

  35. when I bred cockers, with the first litter I went to the vet. to get the job done (8 pups), and the vet. was kind enough to teach me how to do it and he "graded" me on the last pup. After that I was able to perform the acts with confidence and did a very good job by the vets. judgement. I did have them checked and 1st. shots within a couple of weeks of birth so I always took the pups health first. It really is an easy procedure as long as you have been taught by someone reputable.

And most people worried about the poor doggy have no idea what animal cruelty really is. Spend 30 seconds talking to a vegan/vegetarian then you’ll see you’re the cruel ones.

  129. Poor dog has to suffer twice. The stupid owner who wanted to be seen by dying the dog pink. So not healthy!! They should be locked up!!! Stupid idiot bashing them!! There’s other ways to stand out! Its called being yourself. I would never harm a animal to be seen. Just for awwww affect!!

  134. Ah… Rose, Rose, Rose. Such a pretty name, yet such an ugly heart. If someone gets attacked and just HAPPENS TO BE GAY, it’s not a hate crime. But if a person gets attacked BECAUSE he/she is gay – it is a hate crime. And I unfortunately do believe that it is a hate crime in many – if not most – cases. If not physically attacked, it’s often bullying. Hell, I can’t even think of one person (that I personally know) that hasn’t been verbally attacked for being gay. I’ve never heard of a case where a straight person gets attached for being straight.

  135. This is just my opinion. You might not agree.

  136. Red dye actually tends to be a huge irritant. That’s why if you’re on the border of not feeling good and you eat something with red dye in it you throw up. And you’re gonna rub that all over your dog? As far as it being inhumane? That would indicate that you think the dog is human. Which might possibly indicate a mental deficiency….. Just sayin.

  139. First of all, I think that “decorating” your pet is idiotic and objectionable. They’re not artificial Christmas trees. That being said, the whole idea that a pink dog could incense two people so much that they’d physically attack other people, is just — well, obviously, criminal.
