Man Convicted For Stabbing Bulldog Back Behind Bars

DENVER (CBS4) – The man convicted for stabbing his bulldog in the face is back behind bars.

Matthew Weatherspoon was sentenced to probation Nov. 9 after he pleaded guilty to animal cruelty. That probation was revoked Tuesday because his conviction violated the terms of an earlier juvenile probation imposed on Weatherspoon for a property crime in 2009.

Weatherspoon, 19, stabbed an American bulldog puppy five times in the face in June.

A judge ordered him to 30 months of mental health probation. He was also ordered to pay $6,000 in restitution to cover veterinarian bills for the dog’s recovery.

At issue now is a picture of Weatherspoon with a dog on Facebook. The picture and posts on Weatherspoon’s Facebook page have been brought to the attention of the Denver District Attorney’s Office.

“The postings raised questions that the probation officer will be looking into. For instance, him posing with a pet, when was that taken? Does it indicate that he may be in violation of his probation?” said Denver DA spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough.

When the latest probation was imposed for animal cruelty, the judge told Weatherspoon that he could not own a pet. It is not clear when the picture posted on Facebook was taken or who owns the dog.

    Why wouldn’t he think he could get away with this since he pretty much got a free pass to continue on his path of brutality from this airhead d.a.
