Posted By on Thu, Aug 21, 2014 at 11:06 AM

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police arrested and charged a man with animal cruelty for "bludgeoning a 9-month-old puppy to death last July," according to a department spokesperson.

On Monday, July 14, 20-year-old Briceson Moore "took a wire haired fox terrier puppy to a Savannah veterinary office where it was pronounced dead on arrival," police say. "Due to the nature of the injuries SCMPD Animal Control was notified and the dog’s remains were sent to UGA for a necropsy."

It was determined that the dog died of blunt force trauma.

Eventually, "Moore confessed to Downtown Precinct investigators that he had beaten the dog with a canine toy in a residence on the 300 block of Abercorn Street." A warrant was issued and Moore was arrested.
