An Oregon teenager, reported to be just 15 years of age, allegedly inflicted fatal injuries on a young puppy during a fit of rage on July 3. According to KVAL News, the Cottage Grove girl allegedly threw the seven-week-old puppy to the floor multiple times and then sent text messages to her family to announce what she had done.
The police report explained:
“In one text message, the female mentioned killing the puppy, and ended the text message by stating ‘Ha ha ha.'”
The grievously injured puppy was still clinging to life when the authorities arrived to the Bryant Avenue home, but the wounds were so severe that the pup died en route to a veterinary hospital.
The teenager, whose identity has not been released, was arrested on one count of aggravated animal abuse and booked into a juvenile detention center in Eugene.
