Denison man jailed accused of beating dog to death
DENISON, Texas (KXII) - A Denison man was arrested Thursday for animal cruelty after police say he beat a dog to death.
Denison Police Lt. Mike Eppler said officers responded to a disturbance call around 2:20 a.m. at a home on South Mirick Avenue.
“Information obtained at the residence indicated a dog was beaten to death by a resident of this address because it used the restroom in the floor,” Eppler said.
The suspect, Tyson Tucker, was arrested for Cruelty to Non-livestock Animals.
Family members tell News 12 the dog attacked Tucker and he acted in self-defense.
