Dog-Stabbing Now San Francisco's No. 1 Story

The knifing of Lenny the dog at Fort Funston and the looming potential arrest of the 33-year-old alleged culprit is now the story in San Francisco.

“Man Stabs Dog” is a crime that has everything required to get San Franciscans abuzz — and keep them that way: Violence, bizarre behavior, suspense — the suspect has been ID'd, but may or may not be arrested —  and, of course, dogs. “There's something about the complete helplessness of animals that makes people feel more sympathetic,” admits Linda McKay, chair of the Fort Funston Dog Walkers. “We raise up more with children and animals because of how unprotected they seem.”
