A Duncan man is wanted for accusations of cruelty to animals.
According to court documentation, Jonathan Andrew Biggers, 31, of Duncan, is wanted and accused of cruelty to animals for allegedly throwing a puppy so hard it bounced off of a porch. The crime of cruelty to animals is punishable by a fine of up to $5,000 or imprisonment for up to five years or both.
According to affidavits obtained from the Stephens County Courthouse, around 8:55 a.m. on March 4, police were dispatched to the 800 block of Woodlawn for a welfare check and possible domestic violence.
When police arrived they observed Biggers allegedly “step out of the front door holding a 10 week old, light colored Mastiff puppy in both hands.” Police noted in reports they watched as “Biggers raised the puppy in his arms (to gain force and momentum)” and “then threw the puppy down on the front porch of his residence.”
Police noted in the affidavit the puppy was thrown “with enough force to bounce off of the porch and land in the front lawn.”
Affidavits show Biggers had a warrant out of Garvin County, Arkansas and Texas, though none of them would extradite. Reports show Biggers also had “a FTP through Duncan Municipal Court.”
Biggers, according to the report, allegedly told police the puppy jumped on one of his children. Animal Control took the puppy.
The warrant, as of press time Monday, remained active.
