Bridgeport woman accused of beating puppy to death violates parole

See also

In November 2013, Rommy Rodriquez was charged with animal cruelty in the merciless beating death of her eight-month-old poodle puppy. Rodriquez has lost her bond and is now being detained by authorities after testing positive for drugs reported Monday's Connecticut Republic.com.

She has been ordered into in-patient substance abuse treatment.

Rodriquez, 24, is alleged to have beaten the puppy named Dora to death because she barked too much. A neighbor reported hearing the puppy cry for at least 30 minutes when all of the whimpering ceased. The witness watched as Rodriquez went into the backyard. The next day the witness found the body of the puppy and brought it to the animal shelter. A necropsy revealed the defenseless little dog died of blunt force trauma.

In March 2014, Rodriquez was again arrested; this time she was charged with assaulting her mother. She was charged with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct and interference with an emergency call. She was released after posting $5,000 bond.

A petition to punish Rodriquez to the fullest extent of the law has garnered nearly 21,000 signatures.
