Bruce Anthony Saunders is accused of torturing and then killing a dog and a cat. He is also accused of eating some of their organs. Saunders’ girlfriend called the police in June to report “large amounts of blood” in the apartment. She was concerned that her boyfriend was dead.
Police found a dead dog and cat in the bathtub with numerous lacerations and injuries. The injuries to the animals were confirmed by the Utah Veterinary Diagnostic Lab. Saunders, 33, told the officer that he “chopped up the dog and cat and ate their hearts.” After a warrant was issued for his arrest, investigators said that Saunders was “transient” and “has been reported hiding in the woods but has yet to be found by police after searching for him.” He was later booked into the county jail and has a scheduled court appearance.
