A man faces animal cruelty charges after allegedly beheading a dog because it “looked at him weird”.
Javier Orelly was arrested after officers found him digging a hole next to the animal’s headless body outside his apartment.
Neighbours reportedly alerted police after spotting the 28-year-old kicking and throwing the large black dog around in front of the property, in West Palm Beach, Florida.
When officers arrived at around 7pm on Thursday evening, they found Orelly “digging a grave” for the animal, the Palm Beach Post reported.
He allegedly told police he had sacrificed the dog to “cleanse himself” after it had “looked at him weird”.He is currently being held without bail pending a mental health examination.
