Man threw pets out second story window when girlfriend told him to leave, say police
SAN ANTONIO - Police arrested a man accused of throwing animals from a second story window.
According to arrest papers, the incident began when a couple began to argue. Investigators say Fernando Demetrius Morgan became upset when his girlfriend told him to leave the apartment and not return.
That's when Morgan allegedly threw a small Rat Terrier dog and a kitten out of a second story window. Both of the animals landed on a car windshield, shattering the glass.
The dog, named Ruby, suffered a cracked pelvis, two broken legs, broken ribs and internal bleeding. She is now recovering at Animal Care Services and will be transferred to a rescue group for adoption.
The kitten, named Midnight, suffered a minor injury and has since been adopted out by ACS.
Morgan was arrested and charged with cruelty to animals.
The case is in the process of being sent to the district attorney's office with how it will be prosecuted.
