Puppy's Legs Broken

The puppy of an 11-year-old deaf girl had its front legs broken by a man in Oakland right in front of her. The man is Kem Eap and he’s been charged by Alameda County prosecutors with animal abuse. Police got an anonymous tip about what happened. They found the 4-month-old Pomeranian puppy named Chloe hiding under a TV in an apartment. Eap, who is deaf himself, reportedly broke one of the dog’s legs above the elbows and broke the other one the next day. Eap says he’s innocent and the dog injured itself weeks ago by jumping off a bed. The girl says she doesn’t understand why he injured the dog that she recieved as a Christmas present.

The Friends of the Oakland Animal Shelter is accepting donations to help the animal.
