Los Angeles, Calif. - A North Hollywood man was sentenced to three years’ probation Friday, after he allegedly skinned, cooked and ate his roommate’s pet rabbit.
According to a report by the Los Angeles County District Attorney, Dimitri Diatchenko sent his roommate graphic photos of the incident after she told him they could no longer live together.
Diatchenko is a budding actor, according to Buzzfeed, and has had small rolls in Sons of Anarchy and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
The actor fervently protested the charges on this Twitter account, tweeting a photo of his bulldog, saying that he has always treated animals properly.
Diatchenko was also sentenced to 60 days community labor and 48 hours of animal cruelty counseling.
This is how I treat animals. My 7 year old bulldog I've had since she was 9 weeks old. Enough said. pic.twitter.com/hbjF6Ujvbv— Dimitri Diatchenko (@Dimitrid1) September 5, 2015
