There’s lots of other stuff wrong here but the motivations were clear: dog pissed in his yard and on his car.
Police say 23-year-old Modesto Ramos, from Tulare, California, then later buried the dog to cover his tracks and conceal the crime from his neighbor, to whom the dog belonged.
His arrest was confirmed by authorities on Monday and Ramos now faces charges of animal cruelty.
Authorities were first alerted on December 8, after Ramos’ neighbor noticed her dog was missing from the front yard.
She immediately pointed officers from the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office towards Ramos, suspecting him of killing her pooch.
According to police, Ramos was arrested later Saturday night after he confessed to officers that he had fatally shot and buried the dog.
Ramos allegedly said catching the dog urinating on his yard and car made him angry.
Deputies searched Ramos’ home and found AR-15 and AK-47 rifles that are banned in California.
The sheriff’s office says Ramos also faces possession of banned assault weapons and negligent discharge of firearm charges.
