honey boo booIt's been a very bad week for the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo stars. First, family patriarch Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson was rushed to the hospital suffering from a mystery illness and then they find out their family dog was killed. Daughter Pumpkin made the gruesome discovery when she briefly left Sugar Bear's bedside to get some clothes. And they already have suspicions as to who the culprit is.

June shared the news on Facebook and that some cruel, hateful person may have done this on purpose.

Well while sugarbear is up here in the hospital pumpkin and our security guy went back to our house to get clothes and found our dog china or chi-chi had been recently hit and left to die as she was still spasming as they found her we think it may have been done intentionally cause of where she was found at.

So tragic. Every pet owner can relate to their pain. For most of us, our dogs are part of the family and dearly loved. They had adopted China six years ago from a Craigslist posting. According to Mama, she was an "awesome dog" that would "lick u to death b4 she would bite u ... she will b greatly missed Alana love her a lot ..."

While China wasn't always a part of the episodes, she can always be seen during the show's opening, milling about near their McIntyre, Georgia home. Little Honey Boo Boo must be beside herself. Not only is she worried about her dad, but now she has lost her pet too. And the worst part is that someone may have purposefully hurt China. It doesn't matter how despicable you think the family's behavior is or how much you hate the show, there is no excuse for this kind of cruelty. What a monster.

Do you think someone harmed their dog on purpose?
