An Iowa man fatally stabbed a dog after getting it riled up in an effort to attack someone at a party. As reported by WWLP News, 33-year-old Juan Moreno Martinez is accused of working a friend’s pit bull mix into a frenzy while at an Ankeny party on June 6.
Martinez was allegedly trying to get the dog to attack another party-goer, but the dog turned its aggression on a woman who tried to intervene, and then on the man who was riling him up. When the dog attacked Martinez, he used a knife to stab the dog in the head and neck – the knife caused fatal injuries to the dog.
Martinez is facing a slew of felony charges, including assault causing bodily injury, animal neglect-death, two counts of assault while displaying a dangerous weapon, and trespass.
The woman who attempted to intervene sustained “significant” injuries to her arm. Martinez suffered leg injuries before killing the dog. He is now in jail on probation violations.
