In a story just released by my source, the Seattle PI, 38-year-old Carlos Anderson, choked his mother’s five-month-old Pomeranian puppy nearly to death but his brother managed to stop the attack with only moments left to spare the dog. The Skyway man was arrested the day after Christmas and cited with first-degree animal cruelty for choking the Pomeranian.
However, even though Anderson was booked into King County Jail for the first-degree animal cruelty charge, he was quickly released.
The Anderson brothers were home in the 6800 block of South 133rd Street in Skyway based on the court records. Missy, the pom puppy, suddenly began to yelp. Anderson’s brother ran to find out what happened and saw Carlos Anderson choking the puppy against his chest. He could see that the little dog’s eye had come out of its socket – he tried to pry the animal away from his brother.
He then rushed Missy to a veterinary clinic and where she was treated. She required eye surgery and may never be able to see out of the right eye again.
