Justice for Louie: Yorkie Thrown From 23-foot-high Balcony

On Sunday evening, January 8, 2012, county police said officers were called to Mill Centre Drive. A woman had seen a man walk out to his 23-foot-high balcony and throw something. After further investigation, the woman discovered that "something" was an injured Yorkshire Terrier. She picked up the tiny pup and took him to the animal hospital.

Police charged Gary Wallace, Jr, a 43-year-old man who lives at the premises, and charged him with 2 counts of animal cruelty: animal mutilation and felony animal cruelty. He is currently being held on a $250,000 bond.

Remarkably, little Louie has survived this heinous act of cruelty and is reported to be recovering rather quickly, despite his head trauma and other injuries.
