In Des Moines, Iowa, police are searching for a suspect involved in what one officer called the worst case of animal abuse he’s seen in years. According to Channel 14 News, a police report describes Christopher David Vogel, 25, arrived unannounced at his acquaintance Larry Gray’s apartment on July 6.

When the two men entered into a heated argument over a Wi-Fi password, Vogel threatened to snap the neck of a three-month-old Corgi that belonged to Gray’s girlfriend. Vogel then quickly grabbed the puppy and went into the hallway. Gray, because he is in a wheelchair, could not react fast enough and found the “puppy lying in the hallway, bleeding from the nose and whimpering,”according to the police report.

When authorities arrived, they rushed the puppy to a nearby animal rescue center, but she died on the way.

According to reports, the puppy died of major spinal trauma. Sgt. Ryan Doty of the Des Moines Police Department stated:

 “I learned a long time ago not to try and rationalize some people’s actions. This was completely senseless, completely senseless. This animal did absolutely nothing, it was not a threat. It was a small dog, he purely did it out of spite and evil intent.

We need the public’s help. If they see his picture and recognize him, have any ideas where he might be, or pass him at a store or a gas station, get a plate number, call it in, let us know. Our hope is that at some point he crosses paths with an officer maybe on a traffic violation and we’re able to snag him” said Doty.

Vogel currently has warrants out for his arrest for criminal mischief in the fourth degree, interference with official acts, and driving with a suspended license. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa at 515-223-1400.

Help find this man and get him off the streets.

    I am tired of no good pieces of shit like this sucking up the oxygen. This is despicable and repulsive. The authorities need to start sending a much more harsh message to even put a dent in this disgusting escalation of animal abuse and cruelty in the world.

    When the police find him (and they will) his neck should be removed from his body due to an “accident”. I’ve never felt such anger/hatred towards people who do things like this without a care in the world.

    This is TERRIBLE!!!!! I hope you find who did this and do the same to him!!!! What a fucking PRICK!!!!!

    Please find this monster and get him off the streets. How someone can do this to an innocent puppy just breaks my heart. This POS is just plain evil and needs to be put away!

    This POS in human guise should have his neck snapped, exactly as he did to a completely defenceless pup.Then justice will have been served.

    He may be found BUT no judicial system will do anything to this punk – it will be pled down and he will walk away to abuse another animal. Christopher David Vogel is a punk bitch who should be sitting in jail and there the predatory inmates can make sure he becomes their ‘girl’.
