Let me apologize for the shocking nature of this post up front. I don’t make the news, I report it.
Ryan Watenpaugh of Palo Cedro was arrested Thursday after his ex-girlfriend told police that he cooked her dog and secretly fed it to her, according to the Associated Press.
The woman said that Watenpaugh assaulted her repeatedly during the time that they dated. After one such occasion, she left her apartment and returned to find her Pomeranian, ”Bear,” had disappeared.
Police said Watenpaugh cooked a meal for the woman after they reconciled last week, but it wasn’t what it seemed.
He later called his ex to ask her how her dog tasted.
As proof of the killing, on Tuesday, Watenpaugh allegedly left two of the dog’s paws outside her door, according to the Associated Press report.
Watenpaugh was booked for animal cruelty, domestic violence, stalking and false imprisonment, but he has denied killing and cooking the dog.
