Angry Dog tossed to death!!!!

Another sad, sick story about someone allegedly tossing a dog to its death.
It happened in Chicago on Aug 15th.
The stepdad 'allegedly' tossed the sick black Lab off their 3rd floor balcony to its death because he couldn't afford a trip to the vet to have the dog put down
Coco was found lying on the ground 'shaking' just before he died.
The man was held on $50,000 bail. He is charged with aggravated cruelty to animals and animal torture, both felonies.
The dog actually belonged to his stepson and it was stated that the stepdad had lost his job and was under great stress. "Stress affects people in different ways" was quoted but people don't go throwing dogs from balconies to deal with stress.
This man needs medical help but he also needs to be held responsible for his actions.
We are becoming a sicker society every passing day and innocent animals are paying the price.
I'm sure some vet or clinic would have helped him if he had explained their problem.
We do not have to wait for Heaven, it is here on Earth and has four legs
My life: a marathon, a jog, a walk (now) and the end will be a crawl.

Poor baby is in a much better place now where he cannot be harmed ever again.

Stress is no excuse for such behavior.

How very sad..........for the dog. The guy got less than he deserved. All he had to do was take the dog to the local pound and they would have humanely put the dog down if the was that ill. Very ignorant and sad!!!

"Oh yea I can't afford to pay $100 for a vet visit to humanely put the dog to sleep, but I have $50k in the bank to bail me out of jail for throwing the dog off the balcony." Ugh. IDIOT! Couldn't he have just taken the dog to the animal shelter and explained the situation? They would have taken the dog in and had their vet look at the dog and if it needed to be PTS they would, but if not they would have fixed it and given it to a GOOD home. People disgust me!!! (This post is a lot nicer than what is going on in my head right now)

"Oh man, all the older people did this when I was young, nothing to us to toss a dog here or there. There are always more dogs every where, no harm done. Besides they don't have feelings like we do." Michael Vick.


My daughter could tell you what to do with that man.
