The girlfriend who later brought the dog to nearby animal DoveLewis Emergency Hospital where vets took the decision to put the animal down.
After the arrest of Lopez, it was gathered that he admitted to the crime and also told the police that he’d been drinking alcohol at the time of the alleged incident and committed the assault “out of anger.”
According to reports, Lopez fiancee told nurses that her partner displayed some “potential bestiality tendencies.” and he once bragged about watching another person sexually assault a dog and would occasionally show his genitals to them, she claimed. He also suggested getting a dog larger than Estrella, she said.
A necropsy was performed on Estrella after she was euthanized and traces of Lopez’s DNA were found in the dog.

His fiancée told authorities that she is concerned about her family’s safety if Lopez was released from jail.
