Kevin Dean Parrish is a man with admitted anger issues.
And those anger issues were the main reason why Parrish, 20, put his grandmother's dog into a heated oven after it nipped him, he allegedly told deputies in Marion County, Oregon, after they arrested him on charges of aggravated abuse, according to the Statesman Journal.
Parrish lives with his grandmother and was in charge of the dog, a 9-pound Chihuahua-pincher mix named "Kudo." Cops said Parrish told them he was heating up some enchiladas when he reached into the dog's kennel and it nipped him, according to KBOI-TV.
He allegedly told deputies that, when that happened, he grabbed Kudo and decided to put the dog in the heated oven.
Cops said Parrish was prepared to leave the dog there, but he thought better of it when he heard his brother coming into the house, the station reported.
Kudo suffered burns on its legs from being on the hot oven racks, which had been heated to 350 degrees, according to CBS News.
The dog is being treated at a veterinary clinic and is expected to recover, according to the Statesman Journal.
Parrish's bail has been set at $10,000.
