A Shih Tzu named Zahara lost its life last September because a man was angry at his girlfriend and their relationship, and the authorities have finally caught up with him. WNBC reports that 27-year-old Sherman Haynes "threw his girlfriend's small dog out his third-floor window, killing the defenseless animal," yelling, "You need your dog?" to his girlfriend, 25-year-old Farah Benoit. The couple were at his East 93rd Street apartment in Brooklyn, where he also threw Benoit's furniture out prior to the dog, who suffered broken legs, collapsed lungs and internal bleeding from the fall and was pronounced dead shortly after. This morning the dog's killer was finally arrested and charged with felony animal cruelty, reckless endangerment and criminal mischief--he had been avoiding the ASPCA for a year.
