Deputies arrest man for pouring boiling water on girlfriend’s caged dog

In Chino Hills, California, deputies from San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department arrested Enping Qu on Wednesday for allegedly pouring boiling water on his girlfriend’s caged dog several times. Witnesses called authorities after hearing the dog cry out in pain. 

According to the Inland Valley Humane Society press release, two 17-year-old teenagers saw Qu pour water over the dog at least five times and recorded it on video. The teens had been in Pinehurst Park that afternoon when, according to  San Bernardino Sheriff’s Deputy Dan Renear, they heard a dog whimpering. As reported by AbcNews, the  teens looked around and spotted the caged dog on the third-story balcony of a nearby apartment building. That’s when they saw the man, later identified Qu, use a tea kettle to pour water over the dog in a crate.

When authorities arrived at the Butterfield Ranch Road for a welfare check of the dog, they found Enping had the tea kettle with hot water on a warming plate.

“The dog’s coat and skin were warm from the water,” stated the sheriff’s department press release.

Officers from the Inland Valley Humane Society stated the water in the kettle, after an hour, registered at 129 degrees; the dog was removed and transported to a veterinarian for observation.

Qu, 22, has been arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty. He told deputies the dog belonged to his girlfriend who was not at home.

The case remains under investigation. Authorities are asking anyone with information to call the Chino Hills sheriff’s station at 909-364-2000. The three-year-old  Dachshund mixed breed dog presenting with apparent signs of abuse will remain with the Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA. To donate to Sophie’s care please click here.

    WHY isn’t this creep either in jail or awaiting deportation? I HATE the politicians responsible for allowing the mass immigration of Neanderthals into our Country.

    Arrested on SUSPICION of animal abuse??? Still being investigated???……Are u f*cking kidding me???? If the act is recorded on video tape what more is there to investigate???? SUSPICION when it’s on video???? Sounds like its fact not suspicion….not to mention that they have the suffering dog as evidence to go along with that video!!! Why the hell are the authorities dragging their ass on this???? Sounds like another innocent helpless dog brutalized and there will be no damn punishment,no damn justice for this horrific painful torture….and on and on it goes!!! Brutalize a dog and get a slap on the wrist so this POS can go and do it again to another dog. MAKES ME SICK

    This person should be dunked in a vat of boiling oil, not water, since the oil stays on your skin longer than water would.

    Ask the judge if i could please burn Qu’s peepee. Keep us posted that he does’t get a slap on the wrist, an interpreter and special treatment. Let Bubba give Qu some treatment. Poor innocent dog. Stupid girlfriend for being with this scum.

    If your asking the public to donate to the medical needs of this abused dog, the very least that can be done is to have the Punishment Fit The Crime! This animal Suffered! This POS Needs To Suffer!! If he gets off then the system is letting this Ifiot out to Do It Again!

    Just hogtie this hunk of puke named Enping Qu to a leaky raft and let him set sail in the Pacific Ocean – just another waste of flesh and bone who has no right to breathe air. Hopefully, he will get a real wake up call in jail and become the victim of some predatory inmates on a daily basis –

    The subhuman in the photo is a serial killer in the making – taking delight in the torturous pain of another life. We should do all in our power to keep him in prison a long as possible for the safety of all life. Maybe someone will knife him while in prison and save many lives.

    This is one of those cases I wish there was an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth…..please give him the maximum sentence…burning that poor dog at least 5 times in a cage that he couldn’t escape the hot water. Probably because he was made at his girlfriend.
