College Station, Texas (KWKT) — Police have arrested a man for beating a 10 pound puppy.
23-year-old Keannon Harper was arrested and is being charged with animal cruelty.
On March 27th officers responded to a call on the 2500 block of Dartmouth street when a neighbor reported yelling, banding, and a dog crying like it was being tortured.
Officials say the residents lied about having a dog but later admitted it was in the bathroom.
Officers found fecal matter on the floor of the bathroom, blood smears on the floor and wall, and a belt with blood on it and say that the dog was unable to lift its head or recognize that a person had entered the room.
The dog was taken to the Texas A&M Veterinary School to be treated and was later adopted by a veterinarian.
