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.
