A puppy lost one of his eyes after a man allegedly punched him in the face. According to Fox 4 KC, Kunkeo Meunxayakham is facing a felony charge of animal cruelty for allegedly hitting the six-month-old shepherd pup, Tofu, hard enough to irreparably damage his eye. The pup had to have the injured eye surgically removed.
Meunxayakham’s wife claims that her husband was frustrated because Tofu had an accident in his kennel – the accused man claims that he lashed out at the puppy after being bitten. He also claims that he suffers from post traumatic stress disorder from being bitten by a dog in the past.
Following the late November incident, Meunxayakham was arrested and taken to the Johnson County jail – he has since been released on bail. The accused puppy abuser is due in court in early January.
