A 20-year-old Oregon man, who admits to having 'anger' issues, was jailed after viciously attacking his grandmother's dog in a fit of rage.
According to Monday's Statesman Journal, Kevin Dean Parrish, of Lyons, Ore., was caring for his grandmother's dog while she was out of town.
Last Friday, he became angered by the small dog, named "Kudo," and allegedly began to punch and strangle him.
Finally, he placed the little dog inside of a 350 degree oven.
Parrish claims that Kudo had tried to nip him, which in turn, led to the angry outburst which nearly cost the 9-lb. dog his life.
According to the Marion County Sheriff's Office, Parrish admitted that he had intended to leave the little dog inside of the hot oven, which had been preheated for Parrish's lunch, but someone who came home disrupted his plans.
That individual, Parrish's brother, saw the injured dog after he was removed from the oven and confronted him about what had taken place.
The brother, and Parrish's father, were able to get Kudo to a veterinarian for treatment. Though the dog was severely burned on his feet, and bruised from being punched, he is expected to survive and recover.
Parrish, who had no prior criminal record, was charged with a class-C felony for aggravated abuse and booked into the county jail.
