A senior dog was bludgeoned to death after coming inside of his owner’s Taylor, Texas, home. As reported by the Statesman, Ronny Woods is facing a felony animal cruelty charge for killing the 10-year-old Labrador retriever, who came inside and sought out comfort on a mattress last fall.
Woods told the authorities that his dog “Levi” was an outside dog, but in November, the dog got inside and laid down on a mattress. Woods was so “frustrated” by the dog’s behavior that he struck Levi repeatedly in the head with a cane and then burned the dog’s body.
Woods first tried to tell the police that he thought the old dog had rabies, but he later admitted the true story. The accused dog killer could face up to two years in prison if he is found guilty. He is currently being held at the Williamson County Jail.
