Eight Pound Chihuahua Bashed to Death by 265 Pound Brute
NY Daily News ^ | Friday, February 18th 2011, 10:13 PM | Lisa Colangelo

A 265-pound Queens man was arrested by the ASPCA Friday for fatally beating his 8-pound Chihuahua.

The tiny pooch, named Spotye, was so severely injured he had to be euthanized.

Jerry Melendez, 33, was charged with felony animal cruelty after ASPCA investigators determined the pup suffered a fractured skull caused by blunt force impact and a hemorrhage in his left eye.

A necropsy also showed the dog had blood in his abdominal cavity.

The 5-year-old Chihuahua was brought to a veterinarian on Feb. 10 and was treated for seizures and head trauma, according to ASPCA Assistant Director Joseph Pentangelo.

The doctor contacted the ASPCA, which conducted an investigation including a necropsy of the dog's body.

If convicted, Melendez faces up to two years in prison and a $2,000 fine.

Count me in. Is my aluminum softball bat good to go, or is that considered illegal, like a full-auto trigger mod?

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Oooooo. A coil of concertina wire around the shaft. I like the way you think. It might also come in handy if union thugs try to stir the budget pot just down the road in Montgomery.

I’ll even go buy new bats.

Good thing I don’t live anywhere near this POS, or I’d be in jail myself tonight.

What a disturbing image. We as a society should be horrified by this action. The next stage for such a person is to throw their rage at a human being.

arrested by the ASPCA

When did ASPCA become an arresting unit?

I hate what the thug did, BUT can they arrest me for killing bugs, or squirrels?

Just wondering.

Something is not right when they have arrest powers.

Poor baby! The photo shows the face of a little creature with such a betrayed and futile look on its face. I just want to take it in my arms and sit in a rocking chair and comfort and love it. - As human beings, we have a certain responsibility to behave in a humane way toward the animals which we have been given dominion over in God’s creation. - The anger of man does not work the righteousness of God; we need to remember. Lord help us! What is this world coming to?

About 150 years ago.
