Key Largo, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Noah Mitchell, a 33-year-old Florida man was jailed Sunday after he allegedly beat a dog half to death when the animal grabbed a steak off the counter.
According to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, a black Labrador named "Bubba" almost died after Mitchell severely beat him over a steak that had been left on the counter.
Investigators say a witness told them he was at Mitchell's home celebrating a birthday when Mitchell became enraged at the dog.
In retaliation for grabbing the steak, Mitchell reportedly slammed the dog to the ground and then performed a WWE style "knee drop" on him. The dog suffered a collapsed lung as a result.
When the dog tried to run away, Mitchell grabbed the animal by the collar and dragged him into the house so violently, that it damaged the animal's neck and esophagus.
Police arrived to find Bubba locked inside a cage and unresponsive. The animal was taken to South Dade Animal Hospital where an examination revealed the dog to have several broken bones in addition to the collapsed lung and an injured neck.
Mitchell was booked into the Monroe County Jail on a charge of animal cruelty.
The dog is expected to be in the animal hospital for several days.
