A South Carolina man has been arrested and is facing charges for allegedly throwing a dog to its death. As reported by Live 5 News, 21-year-old Dangelo Drayton was angry that the small “Chihuahua-type” dog had defecated in a West Ashley apartment unit and he threw the dog into a tree.

Drayton allegedly got mad when the dog pooped inside of the apartment, and then became angrier when the dog pooped again while being cleaned up in a bathtub – a witness reported seeing him walk out of the apartment and throw “something” into the woods. That something hit the tree and fell to the ground.

The next day, someone found the deceased dog in the woods and reached out to apartment management. The witness confronted Drayton’s girlfriend about the dead dog – the woman allegedly responded, “Yes I know. He only told me he put it on the edge of the woods, but it’s further back because we could not find it last night.”

The alleged dog thrower is facing an animal cruelty charge.

    OMG!!! That poor furbaby!!! IMHO anyone who could murder a helpless, trusting furbaby could do the same to a human……
    These disgusting cruel POSs who murdered this precious little treasure MUST be locked up forever (only way to keep all of the rest of us safe), only leaving prison in a pine box. These POSs will burn in Hell forever for their cruelty…… hope they both get there ASAP after dying a horrible death alone, afraid, in pain and (worst of all), unloved….. Absolutely NO ?’s about their fate……

    Precious treasure your life was stolen from you (& your life mattered). You absolutely did NOT deserve to be treated so cruelly…… I am absolutely heartbroken for your trauma & death.

    Makes me sick inside to think of this precious furbaby suffering……

    Precious treasure please look for MacKitty in Heaven and he will welcome you into his snuggle buddies group. You can RIP amongst his loving friends……..
