A Queens man has been arrested for allegedly throwing his mother's dog down a garbage compactor.
The incident happened at an apartment on Astoria Boulevard and 32nd Street around 8:30 p.m. Thursday. According to the Post, Kamel Wilder, 26, allegedly snapped after one-year-old yorkie Chewy wouldn't stop barking. Neighbors say he grabbed the puppy and threw it into the sixth floor garbage chute.
The dog's owner then reportedly started crying and pounding on neighbor's doors, screaming, "He just threw my dog down the incinerator!"
"Defenseless. How could he do this to an innocent puppy?” a neighbor told the Post. "To kill a dog? They have a newborn baby in there, too. What is he going to do when the baby doesn’t stop crying?"
Wilder has been charged with aggravated cruelty to an animal which is considered a felon.
