ROBESON COUNTY, NC - On July 1, deputies arrested Bulmaro Santos-Sanchez, 36, after neighbors reported witnessing him brutally attack a dog.
The dog’s owners were out of town at the time the German Shepherd was assaulted. A surveillance camera at the home showed Santos-Sanchez use a knife to slit the female dog’s throat.
She had recently had puppies and was still nursing them at the time of the cowardly attack.
In a news release, the Robeson County Sheriff Burnis Wilkins stated:
It is difficult to imagine how anyone could drag an animal like this and then cut its throat, leaving it to die without any feeling of guilt. There is no doubt that this dog was in much pain and suffering because of this callous act of violence.
Fortunately, the dog did survive the attack thanks to the quick actions of the Robeson County Animal Shelter and Saving Grace Dog Rescue in Wake Forest. She is expected to make a full recovery.
Santos-Sanchez was charged with felony animal cruelty and is currently being held on $560,000 bond and an ICE detainer at the Robeson County Detention Center.
At the time of his arrest, the illegal alien had outstanding warrants for his arrest for weapons charges.
