Dog hurt in Omaha domestic dispute euthanized
By Sam Womack
The Nebraska Humane Society was forced to euthanize a Chihuahua after it was kicked during a domestic dispute.
Omaha police were called Tuesday night to a house near Miller Park and found the severely injured dog lying in the street, said Mark Langan, director of field operations for the Humane Society.
Witnesses told police that a 28-year-old man had kicked the dog off a retaining wall, Langan said.
Investigators rushed the dog, named Honey, to an emergency clinic, but it couldn’t be saved.

1. Throw the book at that f**ker!
"Langan said he planned to speak with the Douglas County Attorney’s Office to determine if the dog’s death falls under a state law regarding animal abuse.
That law applies when an animal is tortured, repeatedly beaten or mutilated, and carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison, a $10,000 fine or both."
