WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Washington Humane Society officials say two D.C. men have been arrested for allegedly brutalizing a bull terrier named McFly.
Christopher Wayne Johnson, 28, and Mark Donell Mosley, 28, were arrested December 2 and arraigned December 4 on felony animal cruelty charges.
On October 3, WHS officials say they found a brindle and white male, bull terrier type dog in critical condition in the woods behind 602 46th Place, SE.
The dog, McFly, had numerous bite wounds over his entire body as well as three lacerations across his neck consistent with an attempt to slit his throat, officials said in a news release.
"What McFly was subjected to and endured was horrific, yet he was determined to survive," stated WHS Senior Officer Dan D'Eramo, adding, "The fact that the U.S. Attorney's Office is taking this on at a felony level is a testament to the severity of this atrocious act of animal abuse."
