Cumberland man accused of stabbing puppy arrested
Posted January 5, 2012
Fayetteville, N.C. — Authorities have arrested a Cumberland County man accused of stabbing a pit bull puppy during a domestic dispute almost a year ago.
Cory Lashan Price, 27, of 2210 Caramel Drive, was arrested Wednesday at his home and released on bond.
Deputies said Price was arguing with his girlfriend last January when she told him to leave. Price then grabbed their 8-week-old puppy as he walked out the door, tossed it in the air and impaled it in the side with a knife, authorities said.
Cumberland County Animal Control officers later found the puppy hiding under the back steps to the home. It had to be euthanized because of its extensive injuries.
