GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - An 18-year-old man has been jailed after a dog was mutilated and hanged from a bridge.
Joseph Nelson was being held Wednesday at the Mesa County Jail on $3,000 bond on suspicion of aggravated cruelty to animals, criminal mischief and other charges.
Authorities tell the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel that Nelson killed his mother's dog, a 3-year-old mix named De Mayo, in August.
No motive was given for the attack.
