A man with bipolar disorder was arrested for allegedly killing his service dog by stabbing him more than 100 times. 

Police said Jacob Bushkin, 27, called family members on Monday morning to tell them that his four-year-old service dog, a Golden Retriever named Cub, was dead at his home in a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona.

Cub's body was found in a trash can and his family members took it to the veterinarian, police said.
