This bastard should be shot. St. Paul man charged for throwing pit bull

The Ramsey County Attorney’s Office charged a 22-year-old St. Paul man Monday with cruelty to an animal after he threw his girlfriend’s pit bull from a second-story apartment balcony in November.

According to officials, Quincy Lee Morrow threw the five-month-old dog from an apartment located in the 1700 block of Adolphus Street in Maplewood on Nov. 28.

The dog suffered multiple fractures from the four-foot drop and had to euthanized.

Morrow’s girlfriend told police they had gotten into a fight. Morrow smashed the windows of her car before throwing the dog off the balcony.

According to the criminal complaint, Morrow said he had put the dog into a kennel on the balcony because the animal had become aggressive. The dog allegedly bit Morrow, and he then threw his hands in the air, and the 27-pound dog happened to have gone flying over the railing.

If convicted, Morrow faces two years in prison, a $5,000 fine, or both.

You have a cool blog. It is typical for abusive men to hurt their partners animals, sounds like that's probably what was going on there. That prior posting about the experience you had at the animal shelter sounded very frustrating, though you were very diplomatic in talking about them. See ya.
