SPRINGFIELD, GA.—Authorities say a Georgia man unleashed his two pit bulls on a neighbour’s pet pig that got loose in a mobile home park, then stabbed the animal 15 to 20 times in front of children and other onlookers.

David Ehsanipoor, a spokesman for the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office, says the pig survived and was in critical condition at a veterinarian’s office Friday.

The owner of the dogs, 23-year-old Benjamin Fullwood, was charged Wednesday with felony cruelty to animals, criminal trespass and obstruction of a law enforcement officer. A bond hearing was set for Friday, and it wasn’t immediately clear if Fullwood had a lawyer.

Ehsanipoor says Fullwood initially told deputies he punched the pig. But he says witness accounts and the nature of the pig’s wounds led deputies to determine the pig had been stabbed
