    CA - Hawthorne man arrested on animal cruelty charges for alleged dog beating

    OMG this makes me cry.


    A Hawthorne man who allegedly kicked, beat and hanged his whimpering dog from a chain was taken to jail when neighbors heard the animal yelping for help, police said Tuesday.

    Ricardo Salvador Plascenia, 19, was booked on suspicion of animal cruelty Monday, shortly after neighbors heard

    his dog, MaryJane, screaming and crying, police said.
    The black 50-pound pit bull, which was slammed to the concrete in an alleged crime caught on video, was taken to an animal hospital. On Tuesday, she cowered in her cage but was said to be in good condition.

    "She's actually a very, very good girl," Hawthorne animal control officer Helen Coronel said. "She's very timid. I don't blame her."

    The District Attorney's Office today rejected immediate charges against Plascenia, saying more investigation -- specifically a medical report -- was needed before Plascenia can be taken to court.

    "We're waiting for the documentation of the injuries, if any, sustained by the victim animal," Deputy District Attorney Amy-Hannah

    It's actually refreshing to read neighbors called the authorities for a screaming dog!

    Now...if we could just get them all to do the same, all the time, for children, women and animals whenever they're abused!
