An employee with the City of Buffalo has been fired from his job following accusations that he stabbed a dog.

Police arrested 46-year-old James Craddock Saturday morning for Animal Cruelty.

According to investigators, a woman was walking her dog near Mineral Spring Road and Frank Avenue when Craddock exited the passenger side of a vehicle, exchanged words with the woman and then stabbed her dog.

Buffalo Police confirmed Wednesday morning Craddock had been terminated.

The dog was taken to a veterinarian clinic for surgery and is now home recovering.
