Man pleads not guilty of animal cruelty

A man suspected of stabbing his own dog at his northeast Spokane home Nov. 24, pleaded not guilty Thursday afternoon during his Spokane County Superior Court arraignment.

Nathan V. Meier, 22, remains in custody at Spokane County Jail with a $10,000 bond for first degree animal cruelty.

Police found him with blood on his person and wounds to his wrist near the 3700 block of north Regal Street. Police believe he stabbed his dog, a 7-year-old German Shepherd mix named Raider, in the throat causing serious injuries.

Meier was taken to the hospital for his own injuries, but was booked into jail afterward.
