A Houston family watched their home surveillance video in horror which showed a man walking by their fenced in yard repeatedly stabbing one of their dogs. According to Abc13News, Veronica Castro and her family found blood in their Hardy Street yard early Saturday morning after their Rottweiler, Chaz, started coughing.
“He had at least four cuts on the lips and two on his chin,” explained Veronica. “It’s completely terrifying. If he does this to an animal who’s only trying to protect his home, what can he do to someone else?”
As Veronica checked their home surveillance video, she saw a man walking by her home, stop at the fence when the dogs began to bark and then proceeded to stab one of the two dogs.
“He cut his lip completely open at one part, and he cut him in the bottom of the neck. Just walking the streets …. The man just stands there at the gate jabbing him (the dog) with his knife.”
On Tuesday, Chaz will be undergoing surgery at the Northline Pet Clinic to repair the damage to his lip and trachea. The family has filed a police report and want the man captured and charged with animal cruelty. The video has been turned over to authorities. The culprit is described as a Hispanic male about 5′ 9″ to 6’2″ tall, medium build. He is shown wearing a white shirt with appears to say “Hardy” on it.
Chaz is expected to recover but could be left with a chronic cough. In addition, he is now very afraid and doesn’t want anyone near him. Get well soon Chaz.
