Police arrested a 24-year-old Bend man accused of nearly killing his roommate's puppy because it defecated on the floor.

Jareb D. Saurman has been lodged in the Deschutes County Jail on charges of aggravated animal abuse and felony animal abuse witnessed by a minor.

Sgt. Greg Owen of the Bend Police Department says Saurman and his roommates arrived home Thursday to find the mess. Saurman allegedly stuffed the feces into the mouth of the 10-week-old puppy before taking him to the bathroom.

Owen says a thumping noise prompted the roommates to enter and they found the critically injured pit bull named Clyde.

A veterinarian at Bend's Animal Emergency Center told KTVZ-TV that Clyde is improving, but still needs constant monitoring. He has cuts, facial swelling and a collapsed lung.
