Heartless man arrested for brutally beating his dog with a shovel

This is an animal mistreating another animal.  But, in this case the guy should know better.  Horrible!

NY Post reports a deranged Long Island man was arrested for savagely beating his dog in public – an attack that led to the pooch being euthanized, police said.

With his neighbor watching, Michael Gallagher, 56, attacked his helpless Shepherd mix on the front lawn of his Levittown home about 2:45 p.m. Friday.

Gallagher choked the dog with a plastic zip tie and tossed the poor pup into a garbage bag, cops said. He then whacked the animal in the head with a shovel.
The horrified neighbor confronted Gallagher, who then left his yard.
The neighbor opened the bag, cut the zip tie and noticed the dog suffered a gaping head wound, cops said.

Authorities were called, and the badly battered dog was taken to the Levittown Animal Hospital, where it was put down.

Cops eventually located Gallagher about 10:30 p.m. at a nearby 7 Eleven.
