MILWAUKEE (AP) - A Milwaukee man has been sentenced to 2½ years in prison for repeatedly stabbing an unwanted cocker spaniel that kept finding its way home.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/27mxQSB ) that 38-year-old Zachary Senner told the judge at sentencing Friday he was sincerely sorry and took full responsibility.

According to his lawyer, Senner was drunk and high on cocaine on the December night when police found the dog, Brandy, dead. Senner pleaded guilty in April.

Senner told police his brother and sister-in-law asked him to get rid of their dog. He tried abandoning Brandy but she soon found her way home. Then he slit the dog’s throat and left it in some woods. But Brandy made it home again, bleeding badly. He then stabbed the dog repeatedly until it died.
