A California man was arrested on charges of stalking, false imprisonment, domestic violence and animal cruelty after his ex-girlfriend told police that he killed and cooked her pomeranian dog before feeding it to her.

The woman said she suffered bruises and minor abrasions from several assaults through the months of their relationship and was she held against her will on two occasions while trying to escape.

[su_center_ad]Watenpaugh attacked her on Aug. 4, and she ran out the back door of her apartment in Redding. When the woman returned to her residence, Watenpaugh was gone and so was her Pomeranian named Bear, Police Sgt. Todd Cogle said.

In early September when the couple reconciled briefly, Watenpaugh cooked his girlfriend a meal.  According to Cogle, the woman received a text on Sept 7th from Watenpaugh asking her how her dog tasted and referenced the dinner he cooked for her.

According to police, Watenpaugh continued to send the woman menacing text messages, stating various things he planned on doing with the remains of her dog, including returning her pet’s paws to her.

According to KHOU, on Tuesday, around 1:00 a.m., the woman heard a truck pull up outside her residence. She looked outside and saw Watenpaugh walk up to her home, place something near her door, then walk away.

The woman opened her front door and found a small bag containing dog paws, which she identified as belonging to Bear, Cogle said.

When Watenpauh was arrested Wednesday, he admitted to sending the messages and placing the dog paws on her porch, but denied killing or cooking her dog, Cogle said.

Authorities found a Romanian variant AK-47 assault rifle and multiple high-capacity magazines during a search of the suspect’s home.

Further charges may be pending regarding the weapons violations. He is being held on $250,000 bail, according to KHOU.

    Easily the creepiest stalker this week, a real potential serial killer.

    Sick and twisted “man”. Lock him up and throw away the key…

    Holy crap. If he doesn’t get some serious time, you’ll be seeing him as the next Hannibal Lecter.

    I checked his dating profile….said he was good with pets and likes to cook. Who knew they would be so closely related.

    “In early September when the couple reconciled briefly…”

    Can anyone else spot where things took a wrong turn.

    I can only hope that he runs into some serious animal lovers in prison and tells them what he’s in for.

      Although I believe he deserves some serious punishment I wonder if he’ll be sent to prison or jail.

    Cover your ears. I would cut off his nuts and shove them down his throat if he messed with my dog.

    A modern day Titus Andronicus. How sad.

    There’s one word to describe people like this: losers.
