A 22-year-old man from Irvine, California has been arrested after he was seen continuously kicking a five-month-old French Bulldog puppy.
Locals witnessed Ruiang Zhang kick the innocent puppy multiple times before kicking her down a flight of stairs at an Irvine apartment complex.
Zhang lives at that complex with his live-in girlfriend, who he shares the puppy with.
Officers rushed the puppy to a local veterinarian, where she was diagnosed with several broken bones in her legs. She will remain in the care of the vet until further notice.
Zhang was booked into Orange County Jail on suspicion of felony animal abuse, and was later released from custody.
Irvine police say the case will be referred to the Orange County District Attorney’s office for prosecution.
The police are asking anyone with any information related to this investigation to please call Detective Larum at 949-724-7194.
