TULSA, Okla. — A man was arrested Wednesday after deputies say he stabbed another man’s Labrador retriever.

William Goddard, 37, is facing animal cruelty charges after stabbing the dog in a yard in the 5200 block of South 85th W Ave. and then leaving the scene, the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post.

The dog’s owner rushed him to a veterinarian, where the animal is being treated for his injuries, deputies said.

Goddard told deputies he stabbed the dog in self-defense, but witnesses say the dog was playing with another dog at the time and posed no threat to Goddard.

Goddard was released from jail shortly after his arrest on a $2,000 bond.
