LAFAYETTE, La. (WGNO) – A man in Lafayette is accused of throwing his pit-bull in a trash can because the dog ate his pizza.
KATC-TV3 reports that someone found the eight-month-old pit bull in a trash can. Lawrence Jenkins told police that he threw it there so that the garbage collectors could pick it up the next morning.
When he found out that someone had found the dog, he asked that the person with the dog give it back so he “could kill the dog himself.”
Jenkins was arrested for animal cruelty. His bond is $2,000.
The dog will either be put up for adoption or released to a rescue group.
