A man has been accused killing two of his mother's pet Chihuahuas  - because she loved them more than him.

Adam Kosa is alleged to have slit the throats of the animals with a box cutter. Two other dogs had their throats slit but survived.

The 23-year-old was found on the porch of the home in Melbourne, Florida, drenched in blood, according to WTSP. Police claim he spared two of the miniature dogs.

An arrest report cited by the station revealed that Kosa said after killing one of the dogs he got an 'adrenalin rush' and chased after and caught another three.

Kosa allegedly said he began to feel guilty about slaughtering the animals and spared two from a grisly death.

He also allegedly told detectives he was jealous that his mother paid more attention to her six dogs than him.

After the killing, deputies say Kosa walked to a 7-Eleven where he encountered a family friend and confessed.

He returned home and dialed 9-1-1, but disconnected before talking with a dispatcher, according to the station.

Deputies who responded to an emergency call two dogs dead and two severely injured, police told the station.

 

Family members took the two injured dogs to a hospital, deputies reported they were in stable condition.

Kosa was arrested and charged with four counts of felony cruelty to the animals.

He is being held at Brevard County Jail on a $20,000 bond.

Awww, I feel srry for the guy. I think im going to read more stories like this in the future. People are becoming to attach to these dogs. They already value their dogs over a stranger in the street. Soon, they will value them over their family and friends.

I'm hesitant to judge him simply because he's had to grow up with a mother that doesn't love him.... must have been a really tough life. With that said, it's not okay to kill a Chihuahua, unless they live next door and won't shut up.

It has been written that most serial killers start with animals. This crime is about much more than dogs.

This does not appear to be your typical animal abuse case. This man need psychological help, not base assumptions about serial killers.

Why pick on Chihuahuas? Now pit bulls, on the other hand, would have been a public service.

You are more evil than that guy, you just run around slicing people's throats, you need psychiatric evaluation.

If he can do that to a defenseless animal, what could he do to a child? He needs psychological help!

Stop blaming Florida! This is a sick individual... Needs to be committed to a mental facility before he starts killing men who he is jealous of.

As disturbing as this act is, I actually feel a bit sad for this young man. I have known people who treat their pets better than their own children, doting on them with the kind of love their kids should be receiving. It sounds like his mother might have been doing the same, and it obviously took a toll on him. Again, not a justification by any means, but I do pity him in some ways.
