A Pit Bull was unleashed on his own front lawn. This was not on purpose. The dog slipped out the front door. And in that moment, life changed for the dog. Another dog was running loose and engaged the Pit Bull in a fight. The owner of the loose dog was able to separate the dogs.
So even though the second dog was loose and the Pit Bull was on his own property, and even though neither dog was really hurt, the owner of the second dog left, came back with a friend, and proceded to slit the throat of the Pit Bull.
The dog has survived but has some neurological problems from the stab wound to the head.
The Pit Bull's owner contacted police but they said nothing could be done.
Seriously? A man brought a box cutter to another person's home, grabbed their dog from his harness and proceded to cut the dog's throat...and there's nothing police can do about it? They should rephrase - there's nothing they WANT to do. There are anti-cruelty laws in all states, including Oklahoma.
Thankfully the SPCA is opening up a cruelty investigation. Hopefully the man will be prosecuted for animal cruelty. The fact is HE let his dog run loose. HE let his dog attack another dog. And HE made the decision to leave the scene, grab a friend and a box cutter, and viciously attack the victim dog. That is a sign of serious problems. He needs help and, yeah, I'd say a few days in prison.
