Two men wearing ski masks and garbage bag capes stabbed a pair of cocker spaniels during what's believed to have been an attempted burglary in Stockport, England. The animals were treated for the injuries, possibly inflicted with a screwdriver. From the BBC News:
The pets' owner discovered the masked man who had a bin liner tied around his shoulders stabbing the pets as she walked into her lounge."Caped intruder stabs cocker spaniels in Marple Bridge"
Det Con Dave Moran said: "Understandably, the woman was very upset to have her beloved pets attacked in this way.
"These are small family pets and not vicious guard dogs that posed any threat to the intruder."
