Charges: Man killed roommate's 4 pet ferrets after argument

A Duluth man is accused of killing his roommate’s four ferrets and leaving their bodies in an alley by their apartment. Levi James Arneberg, 27, is charged with four counts of gross misdemeanor animal cruelty after he allegedly shot his roommate’s four pets with a BB gun following an argument. According to the criminal complaint: On Jan. 18 at about 12:24 p.m., police were called to an apartment at 5 N 23rd Ave. E on a report of a disturbance between two roommates. One of the roommates, a man in his 50s, called police to say he got home from work to find that Arneberg had thrown some of his belongings out of their apartment. The night before, the victim said they’d been in a verbal argument about the victim having too many of his things in their shared space. During the argument, Arneberg held a kitchen knife to his hand and said, It would be bad if one of them [the ferrets] were hurt. Get the f*** out! Police found blood in the stairs, walls, ground and in the ferrets cage. Officers then found four dead ferrets in the alleyway outside.
