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.
