In San Antonio, Texas a disgruntled boyfriend tosses his girlfriend’s dog and cat out of an apartment window during a domestic argument.
According to the City of Antonio Animal Care Services, Fernando Morgan, 46, was arrested on Thursday after stunned witnesses saw the pets being flung into the parking lot at the Warren Inn Apartments located on Magic Drive. Morgan became irate after this girlfriend told him to leave and never return.
Witnesses reported to Animal Care Services, that the six-year-old rat terrier named Ruby was pushed down the concrete stairway and then thrown out of the second story window twice, landing on the girlfriend’s car and shattering the windshield upon impact. Ruby suffers from multiple injuries, including a cracked pelvis, ribs and two broken legs. Ruby will most likely be sent to a rescue group after recovery.
The cat, whose name is Midnight, thankfully suffered only minor injuries and has since been adopted into a loving home.
Felony animal cruelty in Texas is punishable by a $10,000 fine and a maximum of two years in prison. Currently Morgan remains in jail in lieu of a $15,000 bond.
