A man in Phoenix, Arizona, is facing an animal cruelty charge for the death of one of his dogs. As reported by ABC 15 News, 70-year-old Jesus Ortiz Martin admitted to the police that he threw his pet to the ground.

Witnesses contacted the authorities after seeing Martin carrying a grocery bag with a dog inside – another witness claimed to have heard Martin stating that he needed to “get rid of some of his dogs,” because he had too many.

Martin claimed that the dog he killed had attacked another one of his dogs, but the police did not find any evidence to support his story. Martin’s two surviving pets, a dog and a puppy, were seized and transported to a veterinary hospital.

  1. Poor precious little treasure. Your human failed you BIG TIME…… it’s so unfair that innocent animals pay for their humans’ stupidity……

    My Dad always said: “Common sense is not so common” & “You can fix many things, but you cannot fix “stupid””…….

    OMG!!! That poor furbaby!!! IMHO anyone who could murder a helpless, trusting furbaby could do the same to a human……
    The disgusting cruel POS 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. This POS will burn in Hell forever for their cruelty…… hope they 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……..

  2. Yes he has too many dogs, and if this is his way of solving the problem he should NEVER have another one. This POS needs to go to jail and I hope they don’t give his dogs back to him. He has shown he is nothing but a heartless monster!
