San Francisco Duo Accused of Training Dogs to Attack Wild Animals Arrested

Two San Francisco dog owners accused of forcing their pets to attack wild animals were arrested last week, police said.

Kelvin Johnson, 28, and Jasmine Marshall, 23, face felony animal cruelty charges after various social media posts reveal the tandem's dogs killing racoons, squirrels, rats, rabbits, an egret and a seagull, police said.

Discovered footage also depicts the pair training their canines to commit harm, police said.

Both suspects were booked into San Francisco County Jail, police said. In addition to the felony animal cruelty charge, Johnson and Marshall both face a felony conspiracy charge. Johnson was also apprehended for a probation violation.

The investigation into the animal cruelty case began on Oct. 5, police said.
