Unrepentant Snake Stabber Arrested On Animal Cruelty Charge, Cops Report

“I stabbed the fuck out of the snake because I hate snakes.”

That was the explanation Timothy Wagner, 23, gave Florida police Sunday evening following his arrest for animal cruelty.

Cops allege that Wagner entered his ex-girlfriend’s St. Petersburg home and removed a knife from the kitchen. He then walked into the living room and “took the lid off the snake’s cage.”

Wagner, cops charge, then began “stabbing the snake multiple times.” A patrolman reported observing “multiple stab wounds to the snake’s head and body.”

A criminal complaint does not indicate whether the reptile was killed.

Pictured above, Wagner was arrested for animal cruelty. He was released yesterday from the county jail after posting $150 bond.
