Alleged puppy killer facing felony charge
A Clinton man who allegedly broke a puppy’s neck and cut its throat before throwing it in a trash dumpster has been charged with cruelty to animals.
The suspect is Roger Dale Lively Jr., 34. He allegedly threw the puppy in a dumpster at the Coronado Apartments where he lives after killing it.
Detective Capt. Mike Murley said Lively also threatened his male roommate and did beat him up over the deal.
The incident happened in late October, but details have only recently come to light following the filing of the animal cruelty charge, which is a felony.
