ASTORIA, N.Y. — A New York man was arrested after he killed his mom’s 1-year-old dog by throwing it down a trash compactor, the New York Post reported.

Kamel Wilder, 26, allegedly grabbed the Yorkie named Chewy and threw him from the sixth-floor garbage chute at his home to quiet the dog.

“Defenseless. How could he do this to an innocent puppy?” a neighbor said to the Post.

Wilder was arrested and charged with aggravated cruelty to an animal, police said. The charge is considered a felony.
