Guilty plea expected in dog tossing

By Washington Post editors

A Frederick man appears ready to plead guilty to tossing a Chihuahua off a bridge, ABC 7 reports.

The attorney for David Beers said his client will plead guilty Monday to aggravated animal cruelty, a felony, and theft under $500.

Beers allegedly told investigators he got angry when the dog's owners ordered him off their property. He left, but came back later and grabbed the dog.

He later said he threw the 4-pound Chihuahua over a bridge as he drove home. The dog was never found.

The sad thing is that this guy is married and has CHILDREN. And, it is made worse (at least in my eyes) because it wasn't an impulsive act--he planned it. It's about as sickening an act of animal cruelty as I've ever read about. And, that kind of violence and cruelty is rarely limited to animals. I doubt that he will get anywhere near as much punishment as I think he deserves, but hopefully there will be some mandatory therapy and counseling as part of the sentence . . .
