Killed Dogs and Puppies in Hotel – Charged
He is accused of killing two puppies and dumping their tiny bodies in a trash can inside his Hyatt House hotel room in August of last year, according to a police affidavit obtained by KVUE.
The dead puppies were discovered in Berry’s bathroom by hotel cleaners after he had checked out. Hypodermic needles were also found throughout the hotel room, according to the affidavit. An autopsy later found that the cubs had not eaten for at least two days before they died.
When officers checked the hotel guest’s name, they discovered he had two prior animal cruelty cases against him, including an active warrant for the death of a pit bull. The pit bull’s remains were discovered in the bathroom of a DoubleTree Suites in June 2021.
A veterinarian determined that the dog had likely been “strangled or partially drowned” in the days before his death. “During those 24 to 48 hours, the dog would have been slowly dying and experiencing an unimaginable amount of pain and suffering, until his eventual death,” an affidavit said.
His girlfriend told police during her investigation that Berry would regularly get new dogs and puppies from Facebook, but they always disappeared.
Berry allegedly told his girlfriend that he had given away the animals, but her explanation was always “confusing,” police said.
He is charged with two misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals other than livestock in connection with the puppies and a third-degree felony count of cruelty to animals in the pit bull’s death, court records show.
