Dog owner: Neighbor beheaded puppies for fun


Tyler Tedesco can't believe that his puppies were killed just days before a rescue group was set to adopt them.

Tedesco said he had the puppies "Rebel" and "Boss" for about two weeks.  Over the weekend, Tedesco said he gave them to his neighbor, Robert Davis' girlfriend, to watch. Tedesco explained he believed the puppies might have parvo so he was worried they might make the dogs where he is living sick.

"We asked his girlfriend to watch them, we've seen him play with dogs before, we didn't think anything like this would happen," Tedesco said. On Sunday, Tedesco said he heard a rumor from a friend that Davis admitted to beheading the dogs.

"My girlfriend's brother got told in the car earlier yesterday that he, Rob, cut the dog's head off but said he was joking around and not to tell anybody," Tedesco said.

Tedesco said his girlfriend decided they had to go to his neighbor's home and make sure the puppies were OK.  When he got to the door he said Davis admitted to killing the dogs and then pointed to the area of the backyard where they were buried.

"I started digging but smelled blood, and I couldn't. I stopped. I couldn't dig up my own dogs," Tedesco said.

The description of how Tedesco found the dogs is too grisly to describe. At some point police found the dogs, with their heads removed, thrown into some woods behind Davis' Mableton home.

Cobb County police arrested and charged Davis with two felony counts of aggravated cruelty to animals and three counts of tampering with Evidence.  He remains in the Cobb County Jail on a $275,000 bond.

Tedesco still can't believe what happened to his puppies. He had just called to have them picked up by a pit bull rescue group later this week.

"How could you sit there and watch them bleed, and stab them and laugh and think that is funny? " Tedesco asked. "You just killed an innocent animal. If it was my opinion, the electric chair, give him torture, how he tortured the animals."
