Florida man Adam Kosa allegedly slit the throats of his mother’s Chihuahuas, claiming that she loved them more than him.
Kosa was staying at his parents’ house while they visited his grandparents, and decided to take advantage of being alone with his mother’s dogs.
Kosa later told police that he received an adrenaline rush after slaughtering the first dog and decided to chase after three others. He began to feel guilty after killing the animals and decided to spare two.
The 23-year-old walked to a 7-Eleven where he met a family friend and confessed.
When he returned to his home, he dialed 911, but disconnected the call before speaking with anyone.
Kosa was standing on the porch of his Melbourne home, drenched in blood when police found him. When they inquired into the origin of the blood, Kosa confessed to slitting the throats of his mother’s dogs.
Two dogs were taken to the hospital by family members and have recovered, according to deputies.
Kosa is currently being held at Brevard County Jail on a $20,000 bond, charged with four counts of felony cruelty to animals.
