According to kens5.com in San Antonio Texas, the San Antonio Animal Care Services were not able to save the life of a pup that was allegedly beaten with a large knife by Juan Alejandro Mendiola.

 

The incident took place on Jan. 8 2013, it is believed that 29 year old Juan Alejandro Mendiola attacked the dog because he had chewed up his earphones. According to a police report, Mendoila was holding a sheathed machete and admitted he was disciplining his dog for chewing up a set of earphones. He told officers that he "spanked" the dog several times and then panicked when he saw how much the dog was bleeding.

 

According to Bexar County Court Records, 29-year-old Juan Alejandro Mendoila, was arrested and charged with cruelty to a non-livestock animal.

 

The dog was rushed to an emergency animal clinic before he was taken to Animal Care Services. San Antonio Animal Care Services informed that the dog, a Boxer mix named Tiger, underwent emergency surgery on Wednesday morning. The workers of the Animal Shelter sent out a press release and photo of the dog in surgery on Wednesday morning. He died shortly after.

 

Police gave statement to Kens5.com Staff said that they found the dog covered in his own blood when they responded to a report of animal abuse on Tuesday night at apartment complex in the 2600 block of NE Loop 410. An officer said there was a substantial amount of blood on the sidewalk, and followed a trail of blood to Mendoila's apartment.
