A Michigan man is behind bars after police say he hurt his girlfriend and killed her donkey. 

It happened just across the Indiana border in Mishawaka. 

Dispatchers said they got a 911 call on Sunday and hear the couple arguing. When police arrived, they found a miniature donkey bleeding from the head. 

"This is the first time that I've been involved with somebody that has been in a domestic dispute and that an animal has actually been killed because of it," said Jane Bernard with the LaPorte County Small Animal Shelter. 

The 50-year-old man, Olvydas Abromavicius, was arrested on domestic violence and animal cruelty charges.
