A Wisconsin man, who allegedly slammed a puppy into a wall and onto the floor, has been arrested. According to the Wisconsin Rapids Tribune, 26-year-old Kyle D. Fiegel, of Grand Rapids, allegedly hurled a three-month-old pit bull puppy into a wall and then onto the kitchen floor.
According to a witness, the puppy, named Remi, was obviously injured from the repeated throws. The witness, a woman, picked up the puppy and phoned Remi’s owner to let her know what happened. The pup’s owners phoned the authorities, who responded to the house.
When the authorities arrived, they noted that Remi “had its eyes barely open and wasn’t moving.” One of the puppy’s legs was clearly “disfigured.” Remi was transported to Central Wisconsin Animal Emergency Center where a veterinarian determined that the injuries were too severe for survival – humane euthanasia was recommended.
The puppy’s abuser was arrested on January 22 – he could face over three years in prison if he is convicted for the charge stemming from the abuse which led to the puppy’s death. He could possibly be sentenced to an additional two years behind bars because he has a previous domestic abuse battery conviction.
