Student charged with killing 13 dogs
A Michigan State University student has been suspended after being charged with killing 13 dogs.
A osteopathic medicine student, aged 24, is facing 10 felony counts of animal killing in 55th District Court in Mason and three additional counts of animal killing in East Lansing's 54B District Court. He is also charged with a misdemeanor count of animal neglect because at least one of the dogs, although severely injured, survived. The man admitted killing all the 13 Italian Greyhounds Dogs since September 2010.
According to the police reports, the man was seeing a psychiatrist when he was arrested. The student is now being held at the Ingham County Jail on a £360.000 bond in the East Lansing case and a £70.190 bond in the Mason case.
