A teenager in California was arrested and charged on Valentine’s weekend for allegedly slitting the throat of a small dog and posting the grim scene to social media. According to multiple sources, the Riverside Police arrested 19-year-old Angel Ramos after finding a Chihuahua puppy with a severe neck laceration that resulted in the pup’s death.
As reported by KTLA News, authorities who responded to Ramos’ apartment after reports of a social media video showing the cruel incident. At Ramos’ residence, the police found a four-to-six-month-old Chihuahua puppy in a bedroom – the puppy was “barely alive,” with a sliced throat. They also found blood on Ramos’ clothing, and illegal metal knuckles.
The pup was transported to a veterinary clinic for emergency care, but it was determined that the injury was not survivable and humane euthanasia was the only option.
Ramos was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center on a charge of suspected animal cruelty and for possession of the metal knuckles. Because of covid protocols, Ramos was released hours later because killing the puppy was considered to be a “non-violent offense.” He has an order to appear in court at a later date.
