Woman Panics When She Realizes What This Pit Bull Was Eating (Video)

A resident of Riverside, California was arrested last weekend for slitting the throat of a pit bull with a butcher knife after it attacked his poodle.

Rudy Jesus Barajas was arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty, based on a statement from Riverside County Animal Services.

According to the statement, the owner of the pit bull came out of her house shortly before 10 am and saw her dog was gripping the neighbor's poodle in its mouth by the neck.

Barajas (who owned the poodle) and two other neighbors were working to remove the poodle from the pit bull's mouth. When the dog let go of the 10-month-old poodle, Barajas dragged the animal off the street and into his house, then slashed his throat, according to a statement given to police.

The pit bull owner took the severely injured dog to the veterinarian but it died before she could get there

Barajas' stepfather Raul Romero explained police that "the poodle was in its rightful property when the pit bull entered the yard and attacked." Romero also claimed the pit tried to bite Barajas.

Unfortunately, the poodle named Spunky, was still alive after it was released by the pit bull, but died of its injuries as it was not transported to a vet in time.

Riverside County Animal Services points out that California law allows property owners to protect themselves and their pets in an attack, but the intentional killing of an animal outside of a life-threatening situation can result in felony charges.

RCAS investigated the incident and determined the attack on the pit bull was not defensive in nature and only prolonged the tragic incident.

Barajas has been arrested, but no further details are available.
