After catching his neighbor’s toy poodle having sex with his pet Chihuahua, a California man determined that the only reasonable response was to batter the poodle to death with a brick.
According to The New York Daily News, Marcos Montano-Topete, 32, savagely beat the defenseless animal until it was on the brink of death. He allegedly bashed the poor dog until its snout caved in and it was convulsing and whimpering in a pool of its own blood. The dog ultimately succumbed to its injuries and had to be put down.
In a court appearance, Montano-Topete claimed that the tiny dog, which only weighed 12 pounds, had threatened his family and that was why he had to attack it with a brick. However it was also revealed in the courtroom that the small poodle had impregnated Montano-Topete’s Chihuahua three times.
Luckily for animal lovers everywhere, no one believed the man’s story and it appears that he will pay for what he did.
A jury found Montano-Topete, from San Mateo County, guilty of one count of animal cruelty and one count of malicious killing of an animal. San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said he now faces up to three years in jail for the crime.
“This isn't about some type of self-defense that he was saying from this 12-pound dog,” said Deputy District Attorney of San Mateo County Sean Dabel. “He deliberately took a brick and he deliberately killed this dog.”
Montano-Topete is currently in police custody. He is being held without bail until his sentencing on March 15. There have been no reports as to what has happened to his Chihuahua.
