Facebook Post Leads to Man's Arrest for Killing Brothers DogKevin Hays Salem-News.com
This is the second animal abuse arrest the Linn County Sheriff's Office has made within the past week.
(SWEET HOME, Ore. ) - A Sweet Home, Oregon man has been arrested for killing his own brothers dog.
27-year-old Brandon Clark was arrested after the Linn County Sheriff's Office Animal Control received reports last week about a Facebook post that a dog had to be put down by it's owner after it received injuries from it being thrown to the ground.
On August 6, deputies responded to the 28000 block of Scott Mountain Rd in Sweet Home, and spoke with the suspects own brother Cameron Clark.
Linn County Sheriff Bruce Riley said Cameron told deputies that on August 4, his brother Brandon was angry at his dog when it nipped another dog while it was eating. Brandon picked up the dog -- a five-year-old male gray and white Pit Bull mix dog -- and slammed it to the ground causing the back and hips to break.
Cameron told deputies the dog was so severely injured he felt it was best to put it down.
Deputies then contacted Brandon, who also lives at the residence. Brandon admitted to deputies he threw the dog to the ground. He said the dog's hips and back appeared to be broken and it was unable to walk. Brandon told deputies he tried to give the dog some water but it started vomiting, Riley said.
Brandon Clark was arrested and transported to the Linn County jail for Animal Abuse I.
Riley said this is the second arrest his office has made for animal abuse within a week.
He would like to remind people if they are unable to properly care for their dog or wish to give it up for adoption to please call Linn County Animal Control at 541-967-3925.
