Monster Who Threw Dog Over L.A. Cliff 2 Times Gets Pathetic 2-Year Jail Sentence

monster threw dog over cliff

In a video from a security camera that went viral in September 2016, a Pit Bull mix can be seen jumping through the passenger window into a car parked on a street in City Terrace, near Los Angeles.

A man gets out of the car, carrying the dog, and flings it over a cliff. The obese, bespectacled loser looks around as he walks back to his car, checking to see if anyone is watching.

The dog survived, but two days later the creep returned to the same spot, and again threw her over the cliff.

Fortunately, someone living across the street witnessed this heinous act and immediately began searching for the dog. “I came out here with my flashlight looking around, I was making some noise trying to get her attention and sure enough I saw her behind a bush off the cliff,” the unidentified good Samaritan told FOX 11.

Amazingly, once again the poor dog survived the fall — which prosecutors later said was about 145 feet — without any injuries. A bush stopped her from falling farther.

“She’s a very nice dog and very kind,” another nearby resident, Ruben Roque, told FOX 11. “I don’t know how somebody can do that to this dog.”

After the dog, who he named Hera Grrl, was temporarily taken by the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control as evidence in its animal cruelty investigation, Roque, a combat veteran, officially adopted her and has been showing her just what a loving home is like.

In February, the monster who threw Hera Grrl over the cliff twice was found and arrested. Andres Spancky Raya, 21, pleaded no contest to one felony count of animal cruelty.

The loser was already on probation for one felony count each of hit-and-run driving resulting in injury to another person, and grand theft auto, according to the Los Angeles Times. At the time, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said Raya could face up to three years and eight months in jail.

Raya was finally sentenced yesterday. He must serve five years in state prison — but only two of those years are for the felony animal cruelty count. The other three years are for an unrelated first-degree residential burglary charge.

Doesn’t it seem like it should be the other way around, and he should serve much longer than two or three years for the cruel way he tried to kill his dog?
