A man in Cobb County, Georgia has been arrested for allegedly mutilating two puppies his neighbors gave him to watch.


Robert Williams Davis, 38, was arrested just before midnight on Saturday after police officers found the dogs' dead bodies in a wooded area behind his house.

A 14-year-old neighbor of Davis had given him and his girlfriend the two pit bull puppies. A pit bull rescue group was going to pick the dogs up within a few days. But the neighbor, Tyler Tedesco, learned that Davis had killed the two puppies. He called 911.

"I saw that, I dropped what I was doing and just walked away. I couldn't bear to see that because I raised those dogs," Tedesco told WSBTV.

Davis allegedly killed both puppies with a pair of scissors. Police said one dog was beheaded, while the other was stabbed in the throat. It is unclear why Davis killed the puppies.

"We all ran back to the house and cried. As soon as we saw it, it was something nobody wants to go through or see. And it's really hard for all of us to know that somebody could even do that to a poor innocent animal," Tedesco said.

Davis was charged with two counts of aggravated cruelty to animals and three counts of tampering with evidence. He is being held on $250,000 bond.
