WHEATFIELD, NY (WKBW) - A Wheatfield man is wanted on felony animal cruelty charges after he allegedly threw a small dog to the floor, breaking its pelvis.
Jason Evrard, 27, is wanted by Niagara County Sheriff's Deputies who were unable to locate him on Tuesday.
Animal control officers said Evrard asked his grandmother if she wanted her dog to have a broken neck during a May 9 visit to her Walmore Road home.
"He let it go for a minute then all of a sudden he grabs the dog, picks it up and slams it on the ground as hard as he can," said Mike Chatt, Evrard's uncle.
The dog, a seven-year-old Lhasa Apso named Abby, is recovering at SPCA of Niagara.
Her owner, 75-year-old Jan Evrard, was forced to surrender the animal because she cannot afford the medical bills, Chatt said.
