Florida man accused of suffocating dog after losing his temper

In the city of Oviedo, an ex-boyfriend “to be” was arrested on Tuesday evening by the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office for allegedly suffocating and punching a woman’s dog after losing his temper.

According to WftvNews, Jason Michael Fletcher, 22, “intentionally suffocated” a pug named Nala. The girlfriend told authorities her dog had been acting strange, had been crying and was “very lethargic.” She said her boyfriend had a history of hurting animals and when he lost his temper, attacked Nala.

Fletcher admitted to authorities he had smothered the dog with a pillow and punched it repeatedly. He attributed the dog’s swollen and bloody rectum due “to smothering and the pressure he placed onto it.”

Nala survived the attack and is slowly recovering from her serious injuries. Fletcher faces felony animal cruelty charges.

    Her “boyfriend” had a history of hurting animals and yet this idiot woman stayed with him and allowed this to happen to her dog! What is wrong with some women, having a man means so much you put up with abhorrent behavior? I’m glad the dog will survive but the dog should be taken away from her if she will turn a blind eye to the treatment her “boyfriend” is apt to give it! I hate to tell her also, if he will do this to an innocent animal then, stupid woman, you are next!
