Man arrested for killing puppy with truck

Man arrested after repeatedly running over girlfriend’s puppy with truck

A Colorado Springs, Colorado, man has been arrested for repeatedly running over his girlfriend’s puppy with his truck. As reported by the Gazette, it took a year, but the accused puppy killer has finally been arrested for the April 2019 killing of a 12-week-old pit bull puppy.

The puppy killer is identified as John Smith and his cruel killing of the puppy was captured on surveillance video from a Sportsman’s Warehouse near the The Citadel mall. The video revealed the disturbing manner in which Smith killed the pup.

Smith allegedly let the puppy out of his truck and then waited for it to walk in front of his vehicle – he drove over the puppy and then backed up, hitting the pup again. The puppy is struck again by the truck while lying next to a curb.

Director of Animal Law Enforcement Jamie Norris told a news agency:

“It was pretty disturbing to us, I think it was about four times, four, five times that he ran it over.”

It took the authorities a year to locate and arrest Smith, who has already bonded out of jail.

    What a disgusting POS to murder the puppy……. can’t imagine that there was much left of the puppy to “recognize” after being run over so many times…….

    This POS has earned himself a reserved space in the hottest part of Hell where he will burn forever for his cruelty (what could a 3 month old baby have done to “deserve” this treatment is beyond my comprehension)……. He can’t get to Hell fast enough!!!!!!!!!

    If he was my boyfriend, I would have broken up with him and changed locks, contact information, moved…… anything to keep him out of my life…….

    Precious little treasure, your life was stolen from you. You never had a chance to live, love and be loved. I have faith that you are absolutely in Heaven!!! Please look for MacKitty and join his wonderful snuggle buddies group and RIP amongst loving friends.

      I 100% agree with you. This loser needs the maximum penalty and to pay compensation. Let his employer know also.

    This happened in April 2019, why did it take so long to bring charges? This POS needs to be put away and it should have been done long before this!
