The Barton County Sheriff's Office wrote in a Facebook post that on the afternoon of Thursday, November 4, deputies responded to an animal cruelty report at a residence in Susank.
Upon arrival, witnesses led deputies to a kennel, where inside a Dalmatian had been stabbed to death.
Witnesses described 32-year-old CHRISTOPHER B. DELAUDER (pictured below), as the male who had stabbed the furbaby.
Sheriff Brian Bellendir said that DELAUDER approached the deputies and admitted to killing the dog but could not give a reason for doing it.
An investigation revealed that the defenseless dog was inside the kennel at the family’s residence.
DELAUDER entered the kennel and stabbed the dog at least eight times.
The murderer was arrested at the scene for felony cruelty to animals and criminal trespass.
DELAUDER was booked into the Barton County Jail where he has since posted a $2,500 bond.
The investigation is ongoing.
