Man Attacks Vet After Dog Dies

According to authorities, a Palm Bay, Florida man attacked a veterinarian after finding out his dog died during surgery.

Police say the 60-year-old man dropped his pet schnauzer “BB” off at the animal hospital so his veterinarian could remove some benign fatty tissue from the animal’s chest.

Reports state that the vet said the operation went well and the dog came out of anesthesia–but minutes later, the vet believes the animal suddenly suffered a stroke and died.

Witnesses told police that the man came to pick up the animal, but pulled a utility knife and started to choke the doctor. He eventually stopped and left but reportedly threatened to come back and kill the doctor.

Police responded to the clinic—the man was later picked up and charged with aggravated assault and battery.
