A Florida man has been arrested after stabbing his girlfriend’s dog to death because he said the dog would “always take her side in arguments.”
Mike Lado, 26, is facing an animal cruelty charge for stabbing the Boxer Lab Mix with a large butcher knife.
The incident allegedly began over an argument which led to heavy drinking. After the argument, Lado stormed into the kitchen and “Blue” followed behind.
Lado’s girlfriend said the dog did not approach Lado aggressively. However, she said Blue was barking and growling at him.
Detectives reported there was blood on the doors at the end of the hallway where Blue was trying to escape Lado’s brutal attack.
Blue later bled to death and Lado was arrested. He is being held on $5,000 bond in the Lee County Jail.
