According to police and animal control officers, the pup, Diamond, was found wandering near Matthew Weatherspoon’s apartment early Monday morning suffering from numerous stab wounds. The critter was transported to a veterinary hospital, where he underwent three hours of surgery. He is expected to survive.
When questioned about the bloodied animal, Weatherspoon told police he became angry after Diamond bit him, so he grabbed a knife and stabbed the pup five times, slashing his adorable puppy face. Weatherspoon then got pissed because the dog was bleeding all over his apartment, so he tossed him outside. Police say Weatherspoon had no visible bite marks. Shame…
Weatherspoon was arrested Monday afternoon and is now being held and investigated for aggravated animal cruelty, a felony.
Denver Animal Shelter officials said they would announce when Diamond has recovered enough to be available for adoption. And if one of our fans out in Denver would be kind enough to ship that little guy to me, I’d be most appreciative. Thanks.Tags: Animal Cruelty, Matthew Weatherspoon, Stabbing
