A Fayetteville man is wanted for animal cruelty in the alleged maiming of an eight-week old puppy.

Cumberland County Sheriff’s deputies said 26-year old Cory Lashan Price, of 2210 Caramel Drive, was arguing with his girlfriend when she told him to leave. As he was leaving, Price allegedly tossed their pit bull puppy in the air and impaled it with a knife.

When Animal Control investigators got to the scene, they found the injured puppy hiding in the backyard.

The puppy was taken to a veterinarian, but was later euthanized because of the severity of its injuries.

Deputies said they have arrest warrants for Price. He is described as 5’09”, with several tattoos on his body. One obvious tattoo is a drawing of Superman on his right arm.

Anyone who knows Price’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office at (910) 323-1500 or you may call anonymously to the TIPSLINE at 484-TIPS (8477).
