A Lorain, Ohio, man who fatally stabbed his step-father's dog this past June, pleaded guilty to several associated charges on Tuesday and was immediately sentenced to prison time, reported Wednesday's Fox 8 News.
Emmanuel Eisel, 30, will spend 16 months behind bars for the June 22 killing which took the life of a border collie named "Chew."
According to the police report, the 40 pound dog, who was chained outside of the Massachusetts Avenue home, had growled at Eisel.
Apparently angered by the growl, Eisel proceeded to pluck the dog off of the ground by his tail.
When Chew lashed out at the man who had hoisted him off of the ground, he was repeatedly stabbed with the six-inch blame of a pocket knife. The attack left Chew with multiple injuries to the abdomen and he was ultimately euthanized because of the severity of those injuries.
The savage June attack resulted in multiple charges, including obstructing official business, cruelty to companion animals, criminal damaging or endangering and resisting arrest.
