Watenpaugh’s ex-girlfriend contacted police earlier this month to report she was being stalked by her physically abusive ex-boyfriend, 34-year-old Ryan Watenpaugh.

In early August 4, the couple split up after she ran from her apartment during one of Watenpaugh’s episodes, only to return later to find he was not there, nor was her Pomeranian named Bear.
About a month later, they reconciled long enough for Watenpaugh to cook her a dinner. Days later, she says Watenpaugh sent her a text messages referencing the dinner he’d cooked for her and asking her how her dog tasted.
“How’s your dog taste? I thought it was better with BBQ and those Hawaiian buns.”
“I guess u could bury what u didn’t eat.”

SAVANNAH, GA – Briceson Moore is facing an aggravated animal cruelty charge after he admitted to using a dog toy to beat his girlfriend’s puppy to death.
Police say that last month, Moore beat his girlfriend’s nine-month old fox terrier to death with a “pole type” dog toy. He then took the dead dog to Forsyth Park Animal Hospital, where the vet took note of Moore’s odd behavior.
“Once the dog started to set in with rigor mortis the vet wrote that Briceson started grabbing his legs and making him like he was running while he was dead on a table,” said a SCMPD detective.
Officers say Moore eventually confessed to beating the dog and described how he did it.
“He hit the dog three times on each side, at least three times on each side with its own dog toy; it was a pole type dog toy and he said he didn’t want it to suffer so when it started bleeding from its nose he gave it a hard head shot,” said a detective.…Continue Reading

According to the criminal complaint, one of Walters’ roommates called police a couple weeks ago to report she had been poisoned.
In the complaint, Walters’ roommate, Beverly Bradley, stated to police that she had witnessed Walters having sex with her German Shepherd, Spike, in a shed on the property. She was shocked, she told police, and returned to the house to wait for Walters.
When Walters walked into the home, she didn’t even try and deny that she had been screwing the pooch. Instead, she admitted to Beverly that she copulated with her dog. Multiple times. Furthermore, she also admitted she had been fucking dogs since she was 14. Hell, she even fucked her boyfriend’s German Shepherd, Jake. Multiple times.…Continue Reading
WEST WHITELAND TOWNSHIP, PA – Police have charged 24-year-old James Myers with cruelty to animals after he allegedly injected a kitten with heroin, choked it with a rope and slammed it to the ground.
Around 5 a.m. Sunday, a patrolling police officer noticed Myers parked in the middle of the street with his car door open. Under the door was a black kitten with a rope wrapped tightly around its neck. The kitten was lethargic, bleeding from the face and had some teeth missing.
A search of Myers car yielded bundles of heroin, hundreds of used bags of heroin, hypodermic needles, rope that matched the one wrapped around the kitten’s neck and a small box of cat shit.
The 8-week-old kitten was taken to a vet suffering from head trauma, where it was determined that the kitten had been injected with heroin. Dr. Jennifer Magilton first thought the kitten would need to be euthanized, but she first tried giving it some Narcan, a heroin antidote.
The kitten, now named Hope, immediately improved and is now expected to make a full recovery.…Continue Reading
The victim, upset over the slip, started arguing with Tapia. The argument escalated, at which point Tapia allegedly grabbed the woman by the arms and threw her into a wall in the home they shared.
At some point during the commotion, the woman’s pet raccoon hissed at Tapia, and he reportedly responded by grabbing the critter by its collar and tossing it into another room, where it hit a wall.
And that, my friends, is why I call all of my men “babe.” No confusion, no slips. Ever.
The woman was eventually able to leave the home, went to her ex-husband’s motor home and was taken to the emergency room. She later told police she had suffered at least two broken ribs. No word on the condition of the raccoon, though.
Tapia was arrested July 21 and booked into the Uintah County Jail on charges of assault and animal cruelty.…Continue Reading
EDGEWOOD, NM – Salvador Martinez has been accused of stabbing his girlfriend’s 9-month-old puppy to death with a screwdriver, then skinning the dog and marinating it in Italian dressing.
Torrance County deputies responded to the man’s home after receiving a call regarding the 46-year-old’s odd behavior. When they arrived, a woman told them that Martinez had killed the family dog, a 9-month-old black-and-white chiweenie named Onyx.
But that’s not all he did. After stabbing the dog to death with a screwdriver, he skinned and cut up the puppy before storing the meat in the fridge in an Italian dressing marinade.
Afterwards, he went online to search for dog meat recipes (I find wedding style dog stew to be quite tasty) and to check if eating dog was illegal in New Mexico.
Martinez freely admitted to deputies what he’d done, claiming the couple didn’t have enough food for themselves and the grandkids that lived there. This claim was denied by his girlfriend, who told investigators there was plenty of food in the house.…Continue Reading

Acting on a tip last June, Humane Society Animal Enforcement Officer Merle Wolfgang responded to Bisbee’s residence after someone there found the cats’ bodies in a trash can with “apparent trauma to their heads.”
Several people at the residence told Wolfgang that Bisbee, 32, was the person responsible. When interviewed, Bisbee admitted to killing the animals.
According to court records, Bisbee felt “betrayed” by the animals after one of them scratched him, so he responded by retrieving a golf club and using it to bash their brains in.
Investigators said Bisbee told them he “struck both cats numerous times with a golf club until they no longer were moving.”
Bisbee was charged with two counts of animal cruelty, but pleaded guilty to one second-degree misdemeanor count of cruelty to animals. The charge carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison and a $5,000 fine.…Continue Reading
RENO, NV – Police have charged 24-year-old Jason Brown with multiple counts of animal cruelty after they say he adopted five dogs only to kill and dismember them in his motel room.
Brown was arrested on July 9 after a manager of a Super 8 Motel called police to report some gruesome shit going down inside Brown’s motel room.
He told them that a maid went in the room to clean it, and found bloodstains, dog limbs, drugs and drug paraphernalia inside. The manager told police the maid contacted him, and he found a decapitated brown dog in the room’s bathtub.
While the manager waited for police to arrive, Brown returned but then fled before police got there. Arriving police would check out the room and found four decapitated dog heads inside a small refrigerator.
Two of the dogs were named Fernell and McGee, two Chihuahua mixes given to Brown by someone who used Craigslist to place the dogs up for adoption because they could no longer care for them.…Continue Reading
It all started with an argument about women’s rights….
Police say that mid-argument, the victim retreated to her bedroom in an attempt to end the fighting. The alleged douchebag, 28-year-old James Wertz, continued to scream and whine, so the woman told him it was over.
A short time later, police say, the woman heard a high pitched screaming coming from the living room. She told police she walked out to find Wertz squeezing and punching her rabbit. He was hitting it so hard, she said, blood was pouring from its face. And that’s about the time I would’ve rearranged his stupid fucking Mr. Potato Head face…
She intervened, pushing Wertz away. When he tried to apologize, she said, she kicked him and reached for the phone to call 911. Wertz responded by throwing her across the room and storming out of the apartment.…Continue Reading
Nala, a 7-year-old Chinese Shar-Pei, went missing from her home on Saturday. Her owner, Sarah Gossard, had let the dog out of the house but didn’t notice the gate was open. After realizing Nala had gotten out, she spent the entire day looking for her.
Later that same day, a woman found Nala and was attempting to read the tags on the dog’s collar, which contained Sarah’s phone number, when Nala nipped at her hand. The woman was not seriously injured, but called police to report a stray dog.
When officers arrived, Nala was restrained using a dog pole around her neck. That’s when Bolger went full white knight and used a knife to slit the dog’s throat.

Police say Moreno and his girlfriend adopted the pit bull, Wiggles, back in ’08. When the two split in ’12, Moreno kept the dog.
Shortly after the breakup, Moreno attempted to get his woman back. When she failed to come running, police say he began using the dog as bait.
“Wiggles is dead. I hope you’re happy b—-.” Moreno is alleged to have texted to the woman.
When the woman called and asked after the pup’s health, Moreno admitted the dog was still alive and presumably fine.
On another occasion, Moreno reportedly informed the woman Wiggles was sick and he couldn’t afford to pay for whatever treatment the dog needed. When the woman responded and offered to pitch in, Moreno asked her to dinner — she declined. Denied, he reportedly refused to accept her help, telling her the dog was fine.…Continue Reading
Deputies said a witness called 911 that morning to report that he saw the horse’s owner, later identified as Francisco Cruz, dragging the small black-and-white Shetland pony behind a red pickup. The caller told dispatchers that each time the pony stumbled and fell, Cruz would exit the vehicle and beat the animal on the head with a belt and buckle. He would then return to the driver’s seat and drive on, still dragging the pony behind him.
When police caught up with the douche, Cruz claimed he was mad because the pony had found a way out of the stall and off the property.
Cruz has been charged with cruelty to livestock. Dick.
A hearing has been set for May 13 to determine if the pony should be returned to Cruz or remain in the custody of the Houston Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Animals.…Continue Reading
When police made contact with the neighbors, they were informed that James Guy Bull had been seen digitally penetrating the pup on more than one occasion, causing the animal to yelp and holler. On another occasion, the witnesses claimed, Bull was seen sitting on a chair on his porch, pants around his ankles, with his junk all up in the dog’s rear end. Again, the dog could be heard whining and crying. When Bull realized he had an audience, he simply put the dog down and pulled up his draws.
No word on why, if they had seen this shit on multiple occasions, they didn’t inform police prior to this.
The dog was found chained to a post on the porch without food, shelter or water. She was skittish and emaciated, police say, and had a very swollen vagina.…Continue Reading
Alec Eugene Taylor, who has served for five years with the Baltimore police department, is accused of beating, choking, and killing a 7-month-old Jack Russell Terrier belonging to his girlfriend.

Authorities first received complaints about Galen Aune back in October of 2013. Neighbors reported seeing the man punching the pit bull puppy. Prior to that, neighbors said, Aune was seen picking the pup up by her ears and tossing her. Authorities apparently filed a report and continued to investigate.
Officers recently made contact with Aune at his home. When questioned about the alleged abuse of the dog, Aune reportedly responded that she was no longer a problem because he killed her.
“I know pit bulls, they are all about body language.” Aune told police. “She just looked at me funny and showed bad energy. I had to do something about it, for my health.”
Soooo, he axed her in the head and buried her in the backyard. Animal services took possession of the carcass.…Continue Reading
