A man has been taken into custody for torturing a dog. The man was identified as Jayce Bryant. The suspect taped the puppy’s snout and legs, and dumped it in the Rice Springs and Woodville Road area. Police say, Bryant is an employee of the county jail, but Bryant’s actions happened while he was off duty and was not connected to his employment at the jail. Doctors say the puppy “suffered the utmost serious physical injury caused by having his muzzle taped shut for an extended period of time. He has been fired from his position at the McCracken County Jail. Bryant now faces a felony charge of torturing a dog causing serious injury.
