BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) – A Brevard County man was arrested, accused of biting the family dog. Police said the suspect told them he was trying to “teach the dog a lesson.”
According to investigators, Zachary Kelly, 30, became upset with Pheobe, a four-month-old puppy who was “acting up.” They say he held the dog down and bit her on the ears, causing the animal to repeatedly yelp.
“I’m obviously not happy about it,” said Jessica Wenner, the suspect’s girlfriend and dog’s owner.
