20-year-old Kevin Parrish has been arrested and charged with felony animal cruelty after reportedly admitting to beating a 6-year-old Chihuahua-Pincher mix and putting it in an oven pre-heated to 350 degrees.
He was caring for the dog at his grandmother's house in Lyons. Parrish says he turned the oven on to make himself an enchilada for lunch, then "Kudo" nipped at him. So, he got mad, punched and choked the dog then put it in the oven.
Parrish says he planned on just leaving him in there, but his brother came in and saw what was going on. His brother and father took the dog to a vet and alerted authorities.
Kudo is suffering from a number of injuries including severe burns, but is expected to make a full recovery.
