Man accused of murdering aunt’s dog and dismembering it with chainsaw

In Wilson County, North Carolina, a woman’s nephew has been accused of  stabbing her dog  to death and then cutting the pet in half with a chainsaw.

According to WloxNews,  Jonathan Bulluck, 23, was arrested late last weeks and charged with killing the brown bullmastiff named Tigger.

“This is the worst, isolated case of animal cruelty I can recall,” Wilson County Sheriff Calvin Woodard said in a statement. “The suffering that the dog endured … it was something out of a horror movie.”

Bulluck’s aunt told authorities she had returned home from work on Friday when she was told Tigger had jumped on a two-year-old child also staying in the home. The woman stated she checked the child and there were no injuries although Bulluck allegedly told her he “would’ve killed the dog” if he had witnessed the situation.

The following day Tigger was missing. His severed body was found in a shallow grave – the dog had been sawed in half. One half of the dog’s body is still missing.

Bulluck has been charged with felony animal cruelty and felony larceny of a dog. He was being held in lieu of $20,000 bond.

“This pet had the right to be home, not stolen, suffering and killed,” Woodard’s statement continued. “The offender showed total disregard to his family and their love for ‘Tigger.’ I hope that peace and comfort will one day be obtained by the family who had to endure this tragic loss.”

Rest in peace Tigger.
