Police received the initial complaint May 29. The complainant said Jeffrey Dunlap, 46, who lived at 21 Oak Ave. at the time, had hit Dakota, a 2-year-old Mastiff-Boxer mix, in the head with a wooden mallet several times, police said in a release...............

Dog abuse cases spark outrage


TORRINGTON — A Litchfield man charged with hitting his dog with a wooden mallet, choking it into unconsciousness and shooting it with a pellet gun told The Register Citizen yesterday that the charges are “completely wrong,” and said the whole incident stems from a domestic dispute.

“The dog was never hurt, nor was he dropped off because of ‘not’ wanting him,” Jeffrey A. Dunlap, 46, of Litchfield, said in an email to the newspaper.

The case, along with a similar incident in West Haven this week, has sparked outrage among readers.

Dunlap turned himself into Torrington Police June 30 on an active warrant and was arrested on four counts of cruelty to animals................
