BRANTFORD, Ont. — A 31-year-old man who slashed the throat of a chihuahua and told police he thinks about killing people and eating their brains will be sentenced next month.

Randy Pawis pleaded guilty on Wednesday to causing injury to an animal and uttering threats. He was remanded in custody until April 30.

Police were called to an apartment on March 15. Pawis answered the door with blood-smeared hands.

Blood was found on the floor and walls of a bedroom. In the bathroom, officers found two small dogs cowering in the bathtub. One, a three-pound chihuahua, was seriously injured with a cut to its throat.

Officers asked Pawis if he was responsible and he replied, “Yup, I did.”

Pawis had been drinking and became enraged because the small dog had urinated and defecated in the apartment, court heard.

He became angry as officers spoke to him, started foaming at the mouth and threatened to kill police, court heard.

At the police station, Pawis said he had been left alone with the dogs for eight days. His girlfriend and her children were visiting a relative in Hamilton, Ont. Pawis said he “lost it” and was unable to control his anger at the animal.

He then told police that he constantly thinks about hurting and killing people, and had experienced such thoughts since he was a teenager. He also threatened to eat people's eyeballs and brains, court heard.

The chihuahua survived. The veterinary bill totalled $1,473 and the dog was surrendered to the SPCA because Pawis's girlfriend couldn't pay the bill, court heard. The other dog remains in the residence.
