HANNIBAL — A Hannibal man has been arrested for animal abuse after allegedly stomping a dog to death.

Hannibal police said they were called to a home Saturday after a woman brought the body of a dead dog to animal control officers. The dog, a small Pomeranian mix, had severe head trauma.

Police were told that the 31-year-old suspect, who lived at the residence, picked up the dog and threw it down on the ground after it tried to bite him. Authorities said they were told the man continued to stomp on the dog's neck until it stopped moving.

Formal charges have not been filed.

I HOPE THIS MAN GOES TO JAIL FOR A VERY LONG TIME. HE OBVIOUSLY NEEDS ANGER MANAGEMENT CLASSES THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR HURTING AN ANIMAL!

Disgusting!! There is NO excuse EVER to continue to hurt an animal if you are not in danger. The small dog was not a life endangering threat, so the extreme use of violence was uncalled for and therefore should be prosecuted as abuse. This person has severe anger management issues and no regard for proper restraint for situations!

Prosecute the idiot. If he could kill a animal like that think of what he's capable of doing to a human being.
