ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. — A Kentucky man faces charges after police say he fed his neighbor’s dog meat filled with razor blades, according to WLKY.
Jim Stotts said his dog, Nibbles, started to show signs of pain on July 15. A vet discovered a blockage in the dog’s stomach. Stotts was unable to pay $600 for the treatment and the dog died on July 18.
The same day Nibbles died, Stotts said he stopped Bolt from chewing on something.
“It was Canadian bacon that had been cut in half with broken pieces of razorblade stuffed in the side. I found three pieces. The fourth piece was the one Nibbles got,” Stotts said.
Stotts’ neighbor, Robert Hamme, 60, admitted to police he placed razorblades in the meat because he was frustrated with the dog’s constant barking. He admitted to officers he threw the meat over his neighbor’s fence.
Hamme was arrested and charged with two counts of animal torture; one a Class A misdemeanor for physical injury and the other a Class D felony since the dog died as a result of the torture.
