Irving PD: Man stabbed dog, left it to die

Police in Irving are looking for a man who tied a dog to a dumpster, stabbed it multiple times and left it to die.

It happened around 9:30 p.m. on Feb. 26. Surveillance video shows the man tying the 3-year-old Pit bull mix up to a dumpster behind Laguna Dental on W Irving Boulevard near W. Pioneer Drive.

Cameras captured the man walking away about a half hour later. Someone called police after finding the dog’s bloody body the next morning. Police aren't sure if the man is the dog's owner or not.

Based on the surveillance video, police said the suspect is a white or Hispanic male between 40 and 50 years old. He is about 5 feet 8 inches tall with a thin build.

“That's the concerning thing about this video -- he seems to be so calm and collected, as if this was pre-planned or had some forethought to it and did it in quite a cold, calculated fashion,” said Irving PD Ofc. James McClellan.

Anyone who recognizes him should call the Irving Police Department at 972-273-1010 or email

The DFW Humane Society is also offering up to a $5,000 reward for tips that can lead to an arrest and indictment.

The man will face animal cruelty charges once he’s found, police said.
