New York State Police arrested a Bath man on an animal cruelty charge after an investigation into an incident involving an abused dog.
Christopher Quick is accused of throwing a beagle puppy against the pavement and striking the defenseless animal in the head.
The animal suffered significant injuries to its head and eye.
It was treated by a local veterinarian.
Quick was arrested several years ago for allegedly beating his father, according to WETM. He was charged with aggravated cruelty to animals.
The charge will be answered at a later date.
