A man in Corvallis, Oregon, has been arrested and is facing charges for allegedly kicking his puppy to death. As reported by KEZI News, the wife of 25-year-old Junhyeok Jeong called the police early last week to report the incident.
Jeong was said to be angry that the five-month-old Dachshund was barking and he initially kicked a wall. When the puppy continued to bark, he resorted to violence, kicking the puppy and causing devastating injuries.
When officers arrived, the found the grievously injured puppy wrapped in a blanket. The police attempted to save the puppy with CPR but the injuries were too severe and it passed away.
Jeong was arrested and taken to the Benton County Jail on a charge of first-degree animal abuse.
