Dog stabber identified
Advertisements [?]
(08-22) 06:31 PDT -- The U.S. Park Police has positively identified the man who allegedly stabbed a dog multiple times in a popular San Francisco dog park on Thursday.

The police are withholding the man's name pending further investigation, but described the suspect as a 33-year-old white male. The suspect is not currently under arrest, the statement said.

The stabbing took place about 2:30 on Thursday afternoon in Fort Funston, a part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area near Lake Merced. The woman who reported the stabbing to Park Police was walking her dog, Lenny, near the Sunset Trail when she saw the suspect approach her walking his own dog, Durgerian said.

The man's dog, a white-faced brindled pit bull believed to be named "Denali," and Lenny were assuming aggressive stances toward each other, so the woman asked the suspect if the pit bull was neutered, which it is not, police said.

The man responded to the question by suddenly stabbing Lenny four times with a knife and fleeing the park, police said. The attack left the dog with severe injuries that damaged many of his internal organs, including his spleen and at least one lung, Durgerian said.

Lenny underwent surgery at an emergency pet hospital and was last reported to be in recovery, Durgerian said. The initial hope that frequenters of the park who know other habitual dog walkers there would be able to identify the man proved to be well-founded with the positive identification Saturday.
