An accused dog torturer has skipped out on his court appearance and now a $100,000 bench warrant has been issued for his arrest. According to WHNT News, 37-year-old Christopher McCabe is facing two counts of Animal Cruelty in the First Degree for torturing a dog and posting photos to Instagram.
The allegations of cruelty
McCabe allegedly stabbed his family’s five-year-old black Labrador retriever multiple times – his estranged wife discovered the abuse after finding images on Instagram of the dog, covered in blood, in a bathtub. Officers who responded to the man’s King County, Washington, home found the injured dog, named Lola, with multiple stab wounds. The dog was still in the bathtub and her accused abuser tried to run away from the house. McCabe was apprehended a short time later by a police officer.
The accused man provided a bizarre explanation for hurting Lola – stating that ‘God had given him insight and that dogs contained evil spirits and referenced a scripture in the Bible, Matthew 8:31, which is when Jesus casted demons out of man and into a herd of pigs’.
Amazingly, Lola managed to survive her injuries – she has recovered and is now living in a new home.
The accused abuser
According to Q13 News, after the bench warrant was issued, McCabe contacted the authorities and he is set, once again, to appear in court later this month.
