23-year-old Skylar Martin faces domestic assault and animal cruelty charges after pushing his girlfriend and beating their puppy to death on February 8. As his girlfriend called 911 for help after he pushed her, the operator heard a dog being thrown against a wall and loud yelping afterward. Martin was reportedly upset the dog had urinated on the floor and beat the dog to death, leaving it with broken bones and severe deformities. When officers initially arrived, they were told the dog died due to “an allergic reaction to coconut-based shampoo,” but later admitted to killing the dog. When asked about the noise the dispatcher overheard, Martin said, “Of course it was yelping; it was getting its ass beat.” Martin is jailed in lieu of a $21,000 bond.
