SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Salt Lake City man has been charged with animal cruelty after police say he beat his 4-month-old border collie named Moose to death.

The Desert News reports (https://goo.gl/E6zTzg ) that charging documents say the 19-year-old man abused his puppy multiple times over the summer and fatally beat the dog in August.

The documents say the man’s girlfriend reported concerns to animal services and took Moose to the veterinarian three times in August. Police say she noticed the dog acting timid and neighbors told her the man had been hurting the animal while she was away.

Police say the man beat the dog to death just hours after the last vet visit.

Charging documents say the dog died from internal bleeding in the lungs caused by blunt trauma.
