In charges filed Monday, officers wrote that a neighbor near 3000 South and 8400 West saw the man kick the 4-month-old Labrador in the throat to get it inside an apartment. The man then grabbed the by the neck and took it upstairs, officers wrote.

The neighbor then heard slamming and the yelping for about 5 minutes before the fell silent. The man went downstairs and said he had killed the puppy because he was angry with it, officers wrote.

He and a woman put the puppy in a crate and left it outside for about 6 hours until it was buried in front of the apartment, investigators wrote. The woman later showed animal control officers where the puppy was buried.

The body was exhumed; a lab exam showed the puppy died because his lungs had blood and fluid in them, and his lungs collapsed because of blood and “free air” around them.

The man, 28, was charged with third-degree felony torture of a companion animal.

    I was unsure about his but for the price can’t beat it. They turned out to b very good. They r durable, smell nice and just the right amount of moisture. I had brought some other brand from the pet store and I would have to use like 3 on my 3 lb yorkie pup. Where as these one is all u need. I use these cause my vet said not to wash him until he was 4 months so since he loves to be outside these are a great compromise. It’s been raining a lot around here and the grass is taller then him even though it gets cut weekly and all types of I’ll creature roam in the grass so I love that I now have these as an option to keep my puppy clean.
