Dog Stabbed

Updated: Monday, April 1 2013, 08:35 AM EDT

A Buncombe County man is accused of torturing a dog after stabbing it in the neck. Deputies arrested Randy Radford of Alexander and charged him with felony cruelty to animals.


Mildred Proffitt and her daughter Elizabeth Bird say their boxer-mix is a gentle and kind dog.  But Proffitt says her ex-boyfriend, Randy Radford, arrived at their home Thursday night and stabbed Jesse.


Proffitt says Radford was outraged that Jesse had killed a family member's smaller dog while playing in the yard.  She called deputies after her pet was stabbed and they arrested Radford.


Jesse was taken to an animal hospital with little hope it would survive.  The dog made it through the night and his owners can pick him up at the humane society animal shelters.


Deputies are still investigating the incident, including the dog Mildred Proffitt says Jesse killed. Randy Radford has not been able to be reached for a comment. He's free on $5,000. Radford's next court appearance is April 1st.
