18-year-old charged with killing dachshund

Posted:
Eau Claire (WQOW) - An 18-year-old is charged with felony animal abuse after allegedly slitting the throat of a dachshund.

Christopher Bong was arrested Wednesday in Eau Claire.  According to court records, an acquaintance told police that Bong came to her house at 3 a.m. Sunday morning with blood on his hands, saying he needed help because he'd killed a dog.  The woman who actually owned the dog told police she'd been having an argument with her daughters when their 7-year-old dachshund got out of the house. One of the daughters told police she found the dog by some nearby railroad tracks and that she had asked Bong to take the dog back to her house for her.

Bong reportedly admitted to a friend that he then slit the dog's throat and buried it under some rocks near the railroad tracks. Police found Bong with a pocket knife, BB gun and BBs.  He was arrested and has been charged with felony mistreatment of animals, causing death.  Bong is scheduled to appear in court at the end of the month.
