Dog dies, days after man says dog was beaten

TUCKERMAN, AR (KAIT) - Brock King told Region 8 News late Monday that his dog passed away around 1 a.m. Monday.

A Tuckerman man said his dog was beaten after he and his wife left their house for only a couple hours.

According to a Tuckerman police report, an officer went to the man's home on South Jim Denton Street on Feb. 6.

The man told police there were some prisoners from the Arkansas Department of Correction cleaning ditches behind his home.

He said he and his wife left and went to Jonesboro for around two hours and when they came back, they found their dog had been beaten.

The couple took their dog to a veterinarian.

The man believes one of the inmates hurt his dog, according to the report.
