A puppy who was beaten to death with a hammer may have also been microwaved. The horrific cruelty happened to an eleven-week-old puppy named Sparky who was found discarded in a bin in February 2018.
The accused puppy killer
The accused puppy killer is identified as 23-year-old Kyle Keegan – the torture is believed to have taken place at a raucous alcohol and drug-fueled party in the Ailbury Park area of Lurgan, a town in County Armagh, Northern Ireland, reports BBC News.
A necropsy confirmed that the puppy sustained multiple fractures and brain trauma in the attack. There are also allegations that the pup was placed into a microwave oven. There is ongoing forensic testing to confirm if this allegation is true.
Evidence in the case
The authorities were able to retrieve a blood-splattered t-shirt and a bloodied hammer from the place where the puppy was bludgeoned to death. There is also a 16-year-old witness who claims to have heard “bangs and a yelp,” at the flat where the attack took place – the youth claims to have seen the accused man with a bloodied hammer in his hand on the day that the puppy was killed.
