Man charged and arrested for stabbing woman’s dog in Perth park

A 37-year-old man from Mirrabooka, Australia has been charged with stabbing and killing a four-year-old Golden Labrador retriever at the Perth park of Apple Blossom Polyantha Reserve on Wednesday evening. According to ABCNews, the dog’s owner, Bridgette, 22, had been exercising her two dogs, Luna and Choco, off leash when she noticed a man leaning over Luna.

“Within a split second Luna was on the floor. I thought she was just submitting, wanting to play,” Bridgette stated. “The man bent down. I didn’t hear any snarls, growl, yelps or barks. I thought everything was fine.”

One moment later, however the awful truth became a painful reality. Bridgette ran up to the man to make sure the small dog he had been walking was not being annoyed by Luna, but as she approached, the man put his hood up and mumbled something Bridgette said she could not understand. The man  walked away before jumping the fence and then broke into a run to escape.

“I got closer. I realized she was on the floor, blood all over her. I just dropped and started screaming and screaming… I picked her up and lay her on top of me and felt her heart and I couldn’t feel her breathing; she was gone within seconds,” she cried. ‘Luna was my baby… she was my first dog.”

By the time Bridgette could rush her dog to an emergency veterinarian, Luna had died. The alleged attacker has been charged with animal cruelty and has been released on bond. He is scheduled to appear in Perth Magistrates Court in June. If found guilty of animal cruelty, he could face five years in prison. The suspect’s name has not been released by authorities at this time.

Rest in peace Luna.  (Photo of Luna stabbed at a Perth park via WAPolice)

    J’espère qu’il sera condamné à une peine de prison exemplaire, il est un danger pour la société. Je ne comprends pas pourquoi il a tué cette pauvre âme innocente. La propriétaire du chien ne doit rien lâcher. Repose en paix belle âme.

    R.I.P. Luna. You didn’t deserve what happened to you, people can just be evil. I feel so bad for Bridgette how heart broken she must be right now. I hope they catch the S.O.B. who did this to Luna.

    I hope Australia prosecutes and sentences this maggot to five years – AND he becomes the victim of predatory inmates who take everything from him – intimidation, beatings, rape and robbery are certainly in order – HE needs to be as terrified and treated as cruelly as he treated Luna. PLEASE MAKE THIS SEWER SLIME PAY.
