Man jailed after brutally beating his dog

ORTING, Wash. – An Orting man is accused of brutally beating his own dog with a metal handle bar because, he said, she didn't like the sound of his motorcycle.

Orting Police received 911 calls early Sunday morning.

The calls brought them to a house where they heard sounds of struggle coming from the garage.

When the door opened, a bloody dog ran out, teeth shattered and face cut.

Blood was found on the floor, on walls, on the carpet, on the tool box and in an alcove.

Her owner, Thomas Pettit, was placed in hand-cuffs and arrested.

Veterinarian Dr. Kathy Sheeran treated the 4-year-old Doberman who police say suffered a beating at the hands of her owner.

"She likes to play, she likes to give kisses," she said.

Officers ay Pettit told them he didn't like that Lily was frightened of the noise from his motorcycle. He allegedly hit the dog with handle bars in her face
