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.
