Four chihuahuas, owned by Robert Carter and treasured as members of his family, were stabbed to death in the early morning hours of Sunday at his residence located at the 2000 block of Vermont Ave. in Riverside, Calif. reported ktla-tv. com.

Carter stated he had an argument with a transient a few days earlier. The man made some racial slurs and had allegedly threatened causing harm to his dogs.

On Sunday morning, Carter walked out into his yard and made the grisly discovery; two of the dogs were stabbed to death, and three others were seriously injured with stab wounds.

Two of the injured dogs were humanely euthanized. The other dog, named Sainty, is still in serious condition, and it is hoped that she survives. She is recovering from a stab wound to her abdomen and a broken rib. Two other dogs owned by Carter were not hurt.

Carter was able to capture the argument on his surveillance camera, but not the stabbing deaths of the dogs. That man is now regarded as a "person of interest" by the Riverside Police Department.

According to, Carter stated:

"This is just devastating. It's a crazy thing to come home and find all of your dogs dead -- not necessarily all of them, but the majority of them gone."

Police are asking the public to call the Riverside Police Department at (951)-354-2007 if anyone has any information.

Let's help the authorities find justice for these senseless deaths.
