Judge to decide verdict of man accused of kicking, killing neighbor's dog

NH1.com

JAFFREY - Toby Tousley, of Keene, pleaded not guilty in Jaffrey Peterborough District Court after allegedly kicking and killing a dog last October while working on a rental property.

Police say that Tousley didn't want the dog to go to the bathroom on the property so he kicked the animal. Officer Andrew Lippincott recalled in court, "In his defense [Tousley] said that he kicked cats even harder."

Animal activists were in and outside of the court today, criticizing the New Hampshire animal cruelty laws, calling them weak and saying now is the time to set a precedent.

The judge has heard arguments on both sides and is now deciding a verdict. If convicted, a sentencing hearing will be scheduled for Tousley.
