San Francisco police are looking for two men who stabbed a dog to death during a robbery in the city's Mission District early this morning.

According to police reports, a 20-year-old man was walking with his pup near 22nd and Bartlett streets at about 3 a.m. when two men confronted him. One of the guys grabbed the dog while the second man pulled out a knife.

The three guys got into a verbal argument. The robbers let the dog loose and ran off

The man was uninjured, but, sadly, his dog was not so lucky. The victim noticed his pet had been stabbed; he rushed the pup to an animal hospital where it later died from stab wounds.

Police did not say what type of dog it was, nor could they offer a description of the dog killers. But if you saw this crime or have any with information about is, please call police ASAP at 415-575-4444 or Text-a-Tip to TIP411 "sfpd" on the text field.

How horrible.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
