Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department stated Dawn Courson was arrested on Thursday afternoon on an outstanding warrant for assault and disorderly conduct as she was being interviewed about her attack on her 80-pound dog.  An investigation showed Courson had used a knife to inflict deep lacerations to the dog’s legs. The profusely bleeding dog was rushed to the Palm Glen Animal Hospital for emergency treatment. Courson, 53, told authorities she “wanted to die with her dog.”

“This is a horrific crime to an innocent dog,” stated Sheriff Joe Arpaio, an ardent animal lover. “Animal cruelty is a crime that I will continue to pursue any time that it occurs.”

Courson remains in jail and is expected to face animal cruelty charges.

    She “wanted to die with her dog.”, it doesn’t say anything about her trying to kill herself though does it? The POS should have ended herself and left the dog alone! Another sicko that needs to stay in jail, hope the dog will be ok,

    They should let her FINISH HERSELF OFF and save Taxpayer’s the time and money as some SLICK SLIME BALL LAWYER will get her off so she can go out and do it again!!!!
