A California woman, who threw a small dog to his death from a parking garage in San Francisco, California, was found guilty of animal cruelty on Friday. According to a news release from the San Francisco District Attorney, 34-year-old Wakeen Best was found guilty of all charges which were related to the February 2018 incident which claimed the dog’s life.
On February 10, Best entered the Sutter/Stockton garage and targeted the “fanciest car” she saw on the seventh floor. After breaking the vehicle’s window she encountered a small Chihuahua named Dunky. The dog’s barking startled the woman who “mortally wounded” the dog before throwing his body from the 7th floor parking structure.
She showed no remorse
The woman accused of the cruel act showed now remorse. District Attorney George Gascón stated:
“This defendant showed no remorse and is responsible for the death of a little, defenseless anima. This verdict is a small step toward bringing justice for Dunky. This verdict also sends a clear message that in San Francisco there are consequences for harming our beloved pets.”
Dunky didn’t have to die, I’m grateful for the jury’s thoughtful deliberation in this case,” said Assistant District Attorney Asha Jameson.
The jury found Best guilty of all related charges, including felony animal cruelty, felony auto burglary and felony vandalism.
