KEENE - A man accused of kicking an elderly Pekingese Chihuahua, leading to its death, told NH1 News that he's not sorry.
"I am sorry that owners can't be bothered to take care of their dogs," said Toby Tousley, owner of Tousley Property Management and a candidate for the Keene City Council.
Tousley said people don't know the whole story and that he's had continual problems with two dogs whose owners are not around.
"When you have repeated incidents with animals, people need to take responsibility," he said.
He said the dogs are vicious, and he was afraid he would be bitten.
Tousley was charged with animal cruelty after he allegedly kicked the 17-year-old dog, which later died. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Dec. 10.
Asked if he knew that kicking the dog would lead to its death, he said "I'd rather not comment because I haven't had a chance to seek legal counsel."
The dog wandered into the yard of a rental property on Carroll Street Saturday.
