A 19-year-old New Jersey teen, who was arrested after he killed his grandma’s puppy, has been sentenced. According to the Burlington County SPCA Humane Police, after pleading guilty, Quintin Segars, of Roebling, was fined $750 and he was banned from ever owning an animal again.
Segars killed his grandmother’s newly adopted seven-month-old puppy, “Fiona,” shortly after the pup was adopted. The Malti-poo mix puppy was allegedly killed in the midst of an argument between Segars and his grandma – the puppy is believed to have been ‘swung by the neck’ before dying.
Quintin Segars was charged by County Humane Police with “Inflicting unnecessary cruelty on a living creature” and “Needlessly killing a living creature,” for the October killing.
