Couple stabbed dog 15 times after tying its legs to its neck

Authorities in Springdale, Arkansas have arrested a couple and charged them with aggravated animal cruelty after they allegedly stabbed their family dog 15 times. According to ArkansasMatters, Timothy Triggs, 42, and Stacey Deleon, 46, were arrested on Tuesday after police responded to a call from the landlord of an apartment located on N. West End where he found a large amount of blood inside of the garage. An air conditioning worker had been installing the units when he found the blood.

Officers followed the trail to a shallow grave where they made the grisly discovery of a dog whose legs had been tied to its neck with a red shoestring and stabbed 15 times on its head, neck and chest. Police also found a “bloody knife with a bent tip and a hammer with blood hair on it.”

Triggs and Deleon had moved out of the apartment, and when interviewed, the couple admitted to stabbing their dog and “putting it down” because he was sick. Deleon admitted the dog had suffered and told police she had closed her eyes while stabbing him hoping he would die quickly. Neither of the two ever contacted a veterinarian.

Both have been booked into the Washington County Detention Center.

    You don’t stab your dog if it is sick, to put it out of it’s misery! You take it to a vet to be treated and if need be put down humanely. These people are disgusting POS’s! They need to be out of society!

    The dog was ‘sick’ but these bastards didn’t take him to a vet? Time to exterminate the vermin. They simply didn’t want to move with him. The LEAST they could have done was take him to a shelter.

    These two are spawns of Satan and need to die a horrible death – the same way they killed their dog. Was he really even sick? I doubt it. They just didn’t want to deal with him anymore. RIP sweet dog. I’m sorry for your suffering at the hands of these creatures who, in spite of everything, you loved.

    This is OUTRAGEOUS, blatant animal cruelty deserving prison time in my book. What kind of people are these anyway?? Sadistic, evil creeps who didn’t even have the guts to take the dog to a vet?? Makes me wonder what the dog’s life must have been like in the first place. Surely they’ll be banned from ever owning another living creature, not even a goldfish.

    These aree human defectives. This was not “cruelty” or “abuse.” This was torture murder. They are competent to stand trial: they knew what they were doing. They are simply ignorant and stupid and disordered. When “murder” can be legally applied to nonhuman victims, murderers like this will get put away where they belong, with the hard time they deserve.

    They both need to be “put down” the same exact way because they are obviously too stupid to exist in this world with normal humans. They need to be put in prison for YEARS or worse.
