On Wednesday, a Madera County, Calif. woman was arrested and placed behind bars for allegedly beating a young Labrador mix puppy to death.
According to Wednesday’s publication of KTVU News, witnesses claim to have observed 39-year-old Janice Aguilar beating a puppy and repeatedly slamming its small body into the ground.
Following the alleged beating, Aguilar is said to have stuffed the still alive, but grievously injured pup into a backpack and walking away.
Witnesses have stated that the puppy was still crying in pain.
Following the beating, Aguilar was seen flagging down a car and leaving with the injured puppy.
According to the report, the driver of the vehicle attempted to take Aguilar to two different veterinary clinics in order for the puppy to be treated, but the woman refused and asked to be dropped at a park instead.
Another “witness” is said to have put the puppy, who was just 8 to 11 weeks of age, “out of its misery.”
Aguilar is facing charges for suspected animal cruelty.
