An Apple Valley, Minnesota, man is facing a cruelty charge for allegedly hurling a tiny dog 10 feet in the air after the dog defecated indoors. The landing reportedly broke the dog’s pelvis, causing the dog to scream in pain from injuries that, according to a veterinarian, were on par with being hit by a car.

PETA is calling for vigorous prosecution and the maximum sentence if the man is convicted. Please help by urging the prosecuting attorney to aggressively pursue this case and reminding him that animal abusers’ temper tantrums are often directed toward members of their own species too.
Please send polite comments to:
The Honorable Michael E. Molenda
City of Apple Valley Prosecuting Attorney
