A Lincoln man is charged with felony animal cruelty after allegedly fatally injuring a pit bull after an argument with the dog’s owner. Lincoln Officer Katie Flood says that police were first called to a Lincoln home yesterday after an asault between his girl friend Mary Bechensto and Jessica Goff. Police were called a second time by Leonard Yankton.
“He called police claiming that Jessica Goss’ put bull attacked him. He responded by striking it multiple times with a machete”
The veterinarian however determined the pit bull’s injury indicated that someone tried to chop the dog’s head off as it was lying down.The the two women were also charged with assault for their original fight.
