In Fayetteville, a man from Lincoln was arrested on Sunday after he allegedly slashed the throat of a border collie for barking in the backyard.

According to the Democrat Gazette, Christopher Greene, 44, has been charged with aggravated animal cruelty after his girlfriend, Lynn Patterson told an officer her dogs had been barking in the backyard. Greene became annoyed with the barking and told his girlfriend he was going to kill her dog at which time she ordered Greene to leave.

A short time later, Patterson found her dog, Lady, bleeding in the corner of the yard. She rushed the dog to an emergency veterinarian, but the dog’s injuries were too severe to save her, and Lady was humanely euthanized. The veterinarian told police the dog’s neck had been slashed and there was a puncture wound on the top of the dog’s head.

Greene posted bond in the amount of $5,000.

Rest in peace Lady.

    I hope that the judge “throws the book” at this stupid POS…… Keep this useless, disgusting POS locked up forever (lose the keys please)!!! He has a reserved spot in Hell waiting for him where he will burn forever for his cruelty…….. Hope he gets there ASAP…….

    This disgusting, useless POS would be my EX- boyfriend if he harmed my furbaby!!!
    He would be in the morgue and I would be in jail…….

    Poor precious treasure Lady, your life was stolen from you and your life mattered!!! I hope you get justice for your murder……
    Sorry you were failed by your human (who should have loved and protected you)…….

    I absolutely know you are in Heaven.
    RIP Lady. Please look for MacKitty in Heaven and he will welcome you into his snuggle buddies group. You can RIP amongst his loving friends……..
