Man who dropped puppy off balcony is sentenced
Quincy Lee Morrow said he dropped a 5-month-old pit pull off a second-story Maplewood balcony by mistake after the dog bit his hand.
But police said they couldn't any bite marks on the 23-year-old man, and a vet who examined the ill-fated dog said it didn't look to him like the dog had bitten anyone.
Upshot: A felony animal cruelty conviction and five months of probation.
According to WCCO, "The dog sustained multiple fractures and had to be put to sleep."
Morrow will also have to attend mental health counseling and take a parenting class.
Wait. Parenting class?
