DAVID, Ky. (WKYT) – A Floyd County man is accused of skinning dogs because he “wanted to make a doggy coat.”
On Monday, Kentucky State Police were called to a home on Open Fork Road for an animal cruelty complaint.
A neighbor told police Jonathan Watkins had killed two dogs, skinned them, and hung them off his front porch railing.
The neighbor told troopers Watkins went over to his house to ask for a cigarette when he noticed Watkins covered in blood.
The neighbor said Watkins told him, “I’ve been skinning dogs.”
