BUFFALO, N.Y. — A Buffalo animal daycare attendant was arraigned on Tuesday for a felony count of animal cruelty after he allegedly killed a dog.

According to the Erie County District Attorney's Office, Jarrod Dillman, 23, allegedly caused the death of a dog by throwing it against a wall and repeatedly kicking it. They say he was working at Paw-Prints by Penny on Niagara Street earlier this month, where the incident happened.

Dillman is being held on a $5,000 bail, and is scheduled to return to court on Friday, August 16.
