A'hole tosses havanese puppy from balcony!

I CANNOT believe what I just read, and it happened here in my town to boot. I"m so disgusted words don't even roll off my tongue without having every single ONE of them bleeped from my post...and I don't cuss very often, but bleep bleep bleep bleep bleep..

Un BLEEPING believable;

Or read story here:

A 22-year-old man has been arrested after a puppy was thrown from a motel balcony in Virginia Beach.

It happened on Wednesday, April 4, 2012. Virginia Beach Animal Control and Virginia Beach police officers received a call saying a puppy had been thrown off a balcony at the Econo Lodge in the 3600 block of Bonney Road. Thatís in the Rosemont section of the city.
Officers arrived and found a 3-month-old male Havanese puppy in critical condition. The puppy was taken to a local emergency vet hospital for treatment.
Police say a man and woman were having an argument at the Econo Lodge motel. During the course of the argument, the man grabbed the puppy from the womanís arms and tossed it from the balcony.
Virginia Beach police arrested 22-year-old Enrico C. Farruggio, of the 3600 block of Bonney Road in Virginia Beach. He was arrested on April 11, 2012 and charged with two counts of misdemeanor Animal Cruelty.
Beach police investigated, and found that Farruggio allegedly threw a 5-year-old Havanese dog from a car in the 4200 block of Virginia Beach Boulevard just a couple weeks before the most current incident, on March 21, 2012. During the incident in March, the owners chose to euthanize the dog after it was transported to another local veterinary hospital.
The surviving Havanese puppy continues to recover in the care of a Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center foster parent. However, it will need further medical care. Police say anyone wishing to assist with the cost of his care is urged to contact the Friends of Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center at www.beachpetpals.org.
Update: NewsChannel 3 has now obtained new video of the puppy who is recovering with a foster family.

If there were any justice in this world, this man would be tossed out of a car and OFF a balcony.

I am SO mad right now.

Un BLEEPING believable! This man needs to be locked up before he hurts another animal or human. Why don't people like this ever take their anger out on themselves. There'd be a lot less trouble in the world if he'd jus been so angry that he flung himself off the balcony. I cannot believe the woman was still with him two weeks after he killed the other dog. No way could I even sleep at night if I was around someone like that. She should be charged as well, for stupidity if nothing else.

I apologize if offending anyone in a dangerous domestic situation. i have never been so I am speaking from ignorance. I just pray to my God that someone can help you save yourself.

I know!! I said the same thing The man kills your 5 year old havanese , so you go out and get another puppy for him to try to kill!

I am going to write a nasty letter of disgust over the huge imbalance of punishment here, misdemeanor? Didn't this area learn anything from Michael Vick? The fines, jail time and community service should be a lot more than they are.

I'll keep you posted on what happens to this sorry excuse for a human being and his partner .

Just give me a baseball bat and five minutes along with this guy in a closed room. Lets see this tough guy take on someone closer to his size. Five minutes, that's all I want or need.
