Dresden Police said it was a serious crime of animal brutality involving a four-month-old Saint Bernard puppy.

“I believe it started out by them kicking the dog and breaking its ribs, then one of them stood on its head and pressed it into the ground,” said Chief Randal Walker of the Dresden Police Dept.

Officers said they believe Preston Odle, 18, and Levi Evans, 19, tortured a puppy for fun, making this case even more shocking for residents.

“It’s just not, it’s just in human. It’s just very disturbing. It seems to me that they just wanted the dog to suffer.” said Connie Jett, Dresden Resident

Investigators said it did suffer four nearly four hours..

 “The puppy’s mouth was wired shut, then they put wire around the dogs neck and pulled over a tree limb and pulled it up in the air trying to choke it that way,” said Walker.

Officers said the brutality did not stop there, according to a statement that was made by one of the boys. Police said Odle then decided to stab the puppy in the back with a knife, which makes this the worst case of animal crueltyin Dresden to date. Residents said they are outraged.
” They don’t understand. It’s pretty sickening, ya know to mistreat an animal like that,” admitted Walker.

A sick feeling residents said, they are feeling too. 

“If they are doing that to animals what would they do to someone else that is defenseless,” said Jett.

According to police, the puppy died four hours after suffering its injuries. Preston Odle and Levi Evans were charged with aggravated animal cruelty.

They both bonded out of jail over the weekend. Officials said, the two teens are scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court on Wednesday.
