Around 10pm, Sunday July 26, a man in Keelung City threw a dog from the sixth floor of a building. The dog landed in the middle of the street and died of massive head trauma. Residents placed stools and a red box on one of the stools to avoid the dog being run over by a car, and called animal protection and police authorities.
The suspect, fled from the scene but was caught the next day in Taipei on drug and fraud violations. The dog, described as a red poodle, belonged to the man’s housemate, who was absent at the time. If found guilty, the suspect will face up to one year in prison and a fine of between NTD10, 000 and NTD100, 000.
