COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKCO) - Police arrested 25 year old Christopher Blackstone on suspicion of felony cruelty to animals after his girlfriend discovered her dog wrapped in a garbage bag in a trash bin outside her apartment on December 24th.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reported Wednesay that police say Blackstone argued with his girlfriend at their apartment and ignored his calls after she left.

She told police that she later got a text message telling her that if she had answered her phone her "dog would still be alive." The dog was between 3 and 5 months old.

Blackstone was being held on a $10,000 bond at the El Paso County Jail.

    I just had to come back. I have all the info I need for your lowlife. Going to jail would be a good thing for you. I just can't wait to see how this turns out.

    This is a very sad story to hear about. I honestly do not think that this man should even be out of jail on $10,000.00 for stomping a puppy to death.I personaly feel that he should be doing time in prison for this cruelty act. He should not be in jail,but a maximum federal prison for animal abuse and cruelty.

    I think that the guy nedd done to him what he did to the littl epuppy cause its not right that he did that to the poor little puppy cause he was mad at his girlfiend for not answering her phone. The puppy did nothing wrong and was inocent...

    In the name of "Buddy", may this guy get the most the judicial system can throw at him. If only he could be stomped to the point of death the message might sink into the heads of those who are cruel to animals.
