A Southern California man who allegedly killed a miniature 6-pound dog by teeing off on the Chihuahua with a golf club has been charged with felony animal cruelty.
Larry Jaurequi, 58, faces up to four years in jail if convicted, Riverside County prosecutors said.
A police report states Jaurequi swung the club against the little dog, named Lily, "as if driving a ball off its tee."
"The force of the swing sent the animal flying through the air. The suspect was preparing for a second swing when he was stopped by people that had just witnessed his acts," Sgt. Sergio Rodriguez with the Riverside County Sheriff's Department wrote of the Jan. 26 incident.
Jaurequi allegedly approached the Chihuahua in a cul-de-sac near his residence after the dog escaped along with Poodle from its owner's house while the owner was at work.
The owner found the injured dog suffering as the suspect was walking away from the location, police said. The owner rushed the dog to an emergency veterinarian, but the animal did not survive.
A spokesman for the Riverside County prosecutor's office said Jaurequi, who lives in Menifee, also faces an enhancement alleging he used a dangerous or deadly weapon.
Attempts to reach Jaurequi were not immediately successful.
And yet we excuse the murder of the unborn.
Let me tee off on the corners of his head for about 8 hours ...
Yap, yap, yap, yap, yap, yap, yap and etc.......WHACK! I can understand the man’s reaction even if it was very wrong.
What a guy!
Wonder if he does the same with his wife, girlfriend, mother...
Doesn’t take much to graduate from abusing animals to killing a human being.
A max of four years in jail is not enough punishment.
All is not well with his soul.
This isn’t an abortion thread.
Really? You are sick. Do you just fantasize about harming defenseless animals or have you ever actually taken the plunge?
He probably saw this commercial one too many times.
Gross cruelty to animals is not good either. No? You disagree with punishing it?
Scumbag,low-life piece of s**t.
Wrap the club around his neck.
This sub-human piece of garbage needs to be thrown in jail for a long time - hopefully amidst a bunch of very bad people who just happen to love dogs.
That is not the subject of this thread! You people are so predictable. It's not your cause is wrong, it's that you choose in introduce everywhere you find an opening.
I would love to have him lay on his back, then I would put a golfball on his crotch and swing to club as hard as I could. I don’t know much about golf but would 50 over par be good in this situation? If so, I’ll take it!!
Lowlife scum Poor sweet little dog.
I stormed up to the guys and truly went ballistic. They were both bigger than I was, but I'm a huge hothead and I think they couldn't believe how irate I was.
It created so much of a scene, the marshall showed up, and after hearing what happened, he booted the two sadistic bastards off the golf course.
To this day, I still can't believe the sadistic streak that some people have.
Now I'm irate again.
Tie ‘em to a car and drag ‘em.
Yeah its sick and disgusting and all, but it is just a frog ya know. What if he did that to a big fat june bug? Would you still throw a fit?
