An allegedly drunk Staten Island man who kicked a defenseless eight-month-old Yorkshire terrier down a flight of stairs was indicted on Wednesday for animal cruelty. Michael McNicholas, 24, was arrested on May 18 at his home at the Emerson Hill Apartments after witnesses stated he kicked the puppy named Banana down the stairs.

According to the Daily News, McNicholas now faces aggravated cruelty to animals and torturing and injuring animals. When authorities arrived, McNicholas told them he had been drinking because he was upset it had been the anniversary of his mother’s death.

“I kicked the dog and it flew across the stairs into the wall,” he told police about the incident.

Tragically Banana suffered fatal injuries including traumatic brain injury, eye hemorrhages, rib and hip fractures, multiple liver lacerations and multiple contusions. The puppy was humanely euthanized despite veterinary efforts to save her at the South Shore Animal Hospital.

McNicholas was free on $1,000 bond.

  1. I am sorry to hear about his Mothers passing but it is still no reason to take it out on an innocent baby. I hope he rots in Prison!!!

  2. From all the injuries it sounds like this asshole beat the living shit out of Banana. He needs to be kicked repeatedly resulting with the same injuries he subjected to Banana.

  3. So why is it that when these drunken bastards get upset they have to hurt an innocent animal. Was it Banana’s fault his mother had died and it was the anniversary of it? I’m so sick of them using alcohol as an excuse for hurting things! It’s just a cop out and excuse! These POS’s are just plain mean!

  4. THIS ABUSIVE BASTARD WAAS USING the EXCUSE of HIS MOTHER”S DEATH TO GARNER SYMPATHY>>> HE IS A HEATHAN AND SHOULD NEVER OWN ANOTHER ANIMAL EVER! EVER!EVER! IN MEMORY OF LITTLE BANANA WHO SHOULD NOT HAVE SUFFERERED A NEEDLESS DEATH!!!! ( His mother would have been so ashamed of what she spawned))

  5. Rotten fucking pos! How proud is his mother now? And that damn bond should of been ten times higher than $1000! I’m now wondering who Banana belonged to! Yorkie are so teeny tiny and this freak of nature MURDERED this dog! If he works I hope he gets fired,and if this poor baby belonged to someone else I hope they hired someone to ambush him and wipe up the cement with his face!! Poor little dog didn’t see it coming and how utterly defenseless a tiny little dog is against a big asshole drink! Some people seem to be under the impression that if they are drunk or drugged up society should have mercy on them and forgive them! And on top of all it all is the fact he will not be punished as harshly as he needs to be and that is so wrong on so many levels!!! I hope this jerk steps off the curb and is mowed down by a bus……and he won’t see it coming!!! RIP BANANA

    • Agree 100 percent. These animal abusers have to suffer as the poor animals. Eye for an eye is the only justice for animal abusers. Get rid of them the first time no second chances. Human race has to be cleaned immediately or else all innocent animals and people will be killed by druggies, drunks, so called mentally ill etc and all that will be left is evil. Now another innocent loving dog is dead and the ass who did is alive. What the hell kind of justice is that….none of course because it is an animal.

      • I AGREE!! THE TIME TO STOP ANIMAL ABUSE IS WAY PAST DUE!!
        AN EYE FOR AN EYE!!????
        STOP HURTING OUR FURBABIES !! WE ARE COMING FOR YOU ALL????

    • Totally agree with you. This disgusting POS deserves sympathy NOT…….

      He has a reserved space in Hell where he will burn forever for his cruelty……. He should get there ASAP after dying a horrible death alone, afraid, in pain and unloved…….

  6. Toutes ces sous merde devraient être condamnés à la peine de mort. Pas de pitié pour les assassins d’animaux, se ne sont que des parasites.

  7. OOOOH, Michael McNicholas you are a big bad guy, kicking a little 8-9 lb dog to death. All the jailhouse boyfriends will be shaking in their shoes when you get there. And you had better get there.
