Humane Society Outraged Over Torture and Death of Lubbock Puppy

The Humane Society of the United States is getting involved in the alleged beating death of an 8-week-old Dachshund puppy, in Lubbock.

Early Tuesday morning, Lubbock Police responded to the Savannah Oaks Apartments on 50th Street, west of Slide Road. When officers arrived, they found the puppy bleeding from its ears, nose, and mouth. The puppy was pronounced dead a short time later, by an animal emergency clinic.

"There's a strong connection between cruelty to animals and violence towards people and you know," said Dale Bartlett, of the Humane Society of the United States. "Anyone who's capable of that violent action is a threat to society and we hope animal cruelty charges are filed and pursued vigorously," he added.

NewsChannel 11 has learned that the suspect in this case is the boyfriend of the puppy's owner. He was found minutes after the incident, a few blocks away. He was charged with public intoxication and evading arrest. Additional charges could be filed pending the outcome of this investigation.

The Lubbock Criminal District Attorneys office tells NewsChannel 11 that their office has received an overwhelming number of calls about this case. District Attorney Matt Powell says that if a crime did occur, charges will be filed.
