“This sick, sadistic, jealous, pathetic excuse for a man, should be put in a cell & left to rot!!”

BARRIE, Ont. — A man accused of deliberately killing his girlfriend’s puppy by slamming it on the floor because he was jealous has been released on bail.

Ryan Anthony Baklarz, 23, who is charged with killing an animal, was released on $2,500 and allowed to go home with his mother on Friday.

In court, the prosecution alleged Baklarz killed the fluffy six-month-old Pomeranian puppy named Angel in a jealous rage because his girlfriend was out with a friend with whom she was once in a relationship.

The accused picked up the dog and slammed it on the hard tile floor, causing the dog’s death,” Crown attorney Jennifer Armenise said. “He then put the dog in a plastic bag, tied it and left it on the floor in front of the refrigerator.”

There was no publication ban placed on the bail hearing.

Sitting in her downtown Barrie apartment, with her Irish terrier at her side, girlfriend Ashley Berdan was still weepy Friday as she showed off pictures of Angel, a buff-coloured ball of fluff with big brown eyes. One photo shows the pup wrestling with a red ball, another with its head stuck in a jar of peanut butter.

“She had a thing for peanut butter,” Berdan said fondly.

Confined to a wheelchair for life, she said her dogs bring her great joy.

“My dogs are my life,” Berdan said.

Court heard that Berdan got a text from Baklarz stating: “I killed the dog.”

But, sitting in her apartment, Berdan said she didn’t believe him until she returned home Sunday around 7 p.m. and found a bag on the floor with something soft in it.

“I cried all night and when I woke up I cried again,” Berdan said.

She didn’t want to call police on her own boyfriend but a friend who was with her went outside and flagged an officer on the street, Berdan said.

She doesn’t understand why this happened. “He is normally a sweetheart,” Berdan said of Baklarz.

Baklarz, who has no criminal record, will be back in court Sept. 23.

Comments Off on Police: Man beats wife with dead dog

“This pos better go to jail for a long time for this…sickened!”

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. —Sandy Springs police said a fight between a man and his wife escalated into one of the worst cases of animal cruelty they’ve ever seen.  See video below.

Emmanuel Tadeo, 27, faces animal cruelty and aggravated assault charges stemming from the May 19 incident at his Roswell Road condo.  His wife, 40-year-old Andrea Armintrout, faces an obstruction charge for interfering with the police investigation, police said.

Police told Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik that Tadeo was drinking heavily and got into a physical fight with Armintrout.

“The argument started over him blaming his wife for his misfortunes in life,” said Capt. Steve Rose.

At some point during the argument, Rose said, Tadeo grabbed the couple’s Pomeranian and started attacking it.

He kicked the dog,” said Rose.  “She took the dog back from him and at that time he hit her with the dog, a small, defenseless dog.

Rose said it didn’t end there.

“It was a very graphic scene,” he said.  “The dog was dead, the man had not only kicked the dog and stomped on the dog, but according to what he said, snapped the dog’s neck.

This week, prosecutors upgraded Tadeo’s charges to felonies and rearrested him.  He remains in the Fulton County without a bond.

Neighbors told Petchenik they are shocked to hear about the incident.

“It’s inhumane,” said Barbara Bailey.  “You can’t even think about.  It’s incomprehensible that people would even behave that way.”

“I know this is an old video but I wanted to show it again for those who may not have seen or even heard of this little dog. I can’t imagine why those boys would want to torture a little dog; I certainly don’t think a few months in a rehab centre will fix their heartless souls & evil minds…will those boys ever abuse another…most probably!”

This is Tobey’s story. Tobey was a 5 month old Pomeranian who was tortured to death in August 2007 by 3 teenage boys in Texas. Maria Daines wrote & sang this song in honor of Tobey
