According to King County prosecutors, truck driver Kirk Frazier beat his dog Pretzel so severely using a shotgun and hammer that the dog had to put to sleep.

Frazier eventually told investigators that early in the morning of Sept. 14 his wife woke him up screaming. She said she had been bitten and that Pretzel has his jaws locked on another dog.

Frazier grabbed a shotgun and hit Pretzel on the head three times. The dog collapsed, and Frazier thought it was dead.

He took the dog outside by the garbage cans and went back inside to calm his wife and go back to sleep.
