The ancestors of the dirtbag who threw a tiny doggo off a balcony in California were cutting the hearts out of living victims. Mexicans, descendants of the Aztecs, seem to have a mean streak in them. All manner of human and animal cruelty is a part of their culture.
The perp here won’t get much respect in prison for harming a dog. If he tries pulling his macho man act in prison he may end up on the receiving end of a shiv. If he lives through prison, then back to Mexico with him.
A 24-year-old man who admitted to throwing a 10-year-old boy’s assistance dog off of a Long Beach balcony was sentenced to three years and eight months in state prison on Wednesday, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
The dog, 1-year-old Chihuahua named Pearl, survived the fall but is still recovering from her injuries, according to authorities.
The defendant, 24-year-old Jose Yvani Herrera, pleaded no contest to felony cruelty to an animal moments before Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Judith L. Meyer sentenced him during a hearing Wednesday, according to prosecutors.
In addition to the prison time, Meyer ordered Herrera not to own, care for or live with any animals for 10 years, the district attorney’s office said in a statement.
Prosecutors said Herrera threw the dog off of a balcony on May 7 at a home in the 200 block of Artesia Boulevard where he lived with his ex-girlfriend, her 10-year-old brother with special needs and their 41-year-old mother.
The mother told police that Herrera had picked up the dog and hurled it, according to authorities.
Pearl suffered “significant injuries to her eye,” prosecutors said. Officers arrested Herrera at the scene without any trouble, according to authorities.
Because the dog needed specialized medical care from the fall, Pearl is recovering with Long Beach Animal Care Services instead of the family.
Herrera has a previous conviction for second-degree robbery in 2015, authorities said.
Hey, Jose! Don’t ever go to sleep, amigo, because I’ve smuggled this monster into prison, and she’s coming after you as you catch some zzzz’s.
