A man accused of deliberately killing his girlfriend’s puppy by slamming it on the floor because he was jealous has been released on bail.
Ryan Anthony Baklarz, 23, who is charged with killing an animal, was released on $2,500 and allowed to go home with his mother on Friday.
In court, the prosecution alleged Baklarz killed the fluffy six-month-old Pomeranian puppy named Angel in a jealous rage because his girlfriend was out with a friend with whom she was once in a relationship.
“The accused picked up the dog and slammed it on the hard tile floor, causing the dog’s death,” Crown attorney Jennifer Armenise said. “He then put the dog in a plastic bag, tied it and left it on the floor in front of the refrigerator.”
There was no publication ban placed on the bail hearing.
