265-lb man kills 8-lb chihuahua

From the NY Post:

A hulking 265-pound Jerry Melendez, 33, allegedly took his rage out on his defenseless eight-pound dog on February 10, striking him with enough force to fracture his skull and causing a hemorrhage to his left eye.

After the heinous assault in Ridgewood, Melendez rushed five-year-old Spotty, to a private animal hospital where doctors desperately tried treating him for seizures and head trauma. They were left with no choice but to euthanize the pooch, whose injuries were just too severe.

Veterinarians notified the ASPCA and a necropsy later determined Spotty sustained blunt force impact.

Melendez, was charged with one felony count of animal cruelty yesterday.

He faces up to two years in prison and a $2,000 fine.

Animal abuse is out of control in Queens!

Only human beings have the capacity for evil.

This guy should be drawn and quartered. If it would act as a deterrent we could televise it but most people would just watch for fun. Actually, it would be a lot a fun to finally see an abuser ripped to pieces (hey Mike Vick).

If you get arested/convicted of animal abuse/neglect any children living in the home should also be removed. You need a license to have a dog.. but you dont need one to have kids. Ironic. This lowlife will see what its like to be the little dog in prison.

In the future, SOBs like him will learn one important message: "Let the animal die." Talk about counterproductive when you have to depend on the abuser's willingness to essentially turn himself in.

It sure is becoming a shithole.
Its a real shame, even Joe & John's and Corato's pizza is screwed up. You get re-heated spiced up Spanish like stuff. Bums handing out porn & pawn shop flyers on Myrtle ave

I lost my Polish tenants because they could no longer endure their kids going to a city school with all the feral monsters.
I wont dare rent to these cockroaches, once they take occupation of an apartment its almost impossible to get them out. And when you do the 1 year in housing court to get the sheriff eviction expect $20,000 damage.
Worse if a child or pregnant female is involved. This city's housing law's are anti-owner !!
I keep the basement studio so I am technically and owner living on the premises. It gives me more rights.
I should have sold the house 5 years ago.
