ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – An Albuquerque man is already on probation after he was arrested for torturing a dog.

APD says they got a call about a dog yelping in agony late Thursday night in an alley near Lead and University.

Officers arrived on scene and say they found Shaun Anaya punching a small dog in the trunk of a car.

The dog was found covered in blood but did not die.

Police also found feces and a power saw in the car.

Anaya claimed he was taking the dog to the vet but police didn’t buy it.

Anaya was in court this morning and is on a probation violation hold.

He needs $500 to get out of jail.
