A man who broke the head of a dog stood high on a cocktail of drugs & # 39; at the time of the nauseating attack.

James Alexander Rech, 20, appeared on Friday for sentencing in the Adelaide District Court after he had admitted a series of crimes including the assault of an animal to cause death and to cut another man with a knife in July.

The court heard after Rech had cut off the head of the Staffordshire terrier dog he met outside on the street – in what his lawyer described as "bizarre and unfathomable behavior."

& # 39; This situation came to light by a member of the public who saw the suspect (Rech) in the middle of the highway with the severed head of a dog, & # 39; he told the advertiser.

The suspect was standing on the police in the street with blood covered, with the head of the Staffordshire Terrier in one hand and a cleaver in the other. & # 39;

After the gruesome attack, the RSPCA were called to collect a number of body parts of the building.

When he was found by the police, Rech had dog bites on his body and was transferred to the Royal Alfred Hospital.

He claimed that the bites came from another dog with which he & # 39; had previously played & # 39 ;.
