Bay Minette Police say they are looking to arrest a Mobile man accused of brutally killing a 3 month old puppy with a box cutter.
Police tell FOX10 they are coordinating with authorities in Mobile to arrest Demond Russell Reese for first degree animal cruelty.
“I looked over there and she was just laying there moaning,” said the dog’s owner, Keiyana Anderson. “Like she was just saying help me. She was just laying there. Her eyes were so weak like she couldn’t move.”
Investigators said Reese went to his ex-girlfriend’s house in Bay Minette to argue about the breakup.
Keiyana Anderson tells FOX10 News, he told her that she “loved the dog more” and left.
Investigators believe Reese instead went to the backyard, tied up the puppy, and began cutting it repeatedly across the stomach with a box cutter.
Anderson says she found the dog outside, still alive.
“I never seen somebody get mad and want to harm somebody. Especially an animal. An animal don’t do nothing to nobody,” said Anderson.
FOX10 News tried to get comment from Reese before he is arrested about the incident.
