Sunday, Jan 8, 2012County: Baltimore City
Alleged: Gary Wallace, Jr.
A Yorkshire terrier thrown from a balcony in Baltimore County has been released from an animal hospital.
County Health Department spokeswoman Monique Lyle said Wednesday that the dog is recovering well and is now being cared for at the county animal shelter.
County police say Gary Wallace Jr. threw the dog about 50 feet from a 23-foot balcony at an Owings Mills townhouse on Sunday. A woman who saw Wallace throw something from the balcony and found the injured dog called police. Wallace is charged with animal mutilation and animal cruelty.
He's being held on $250,000 bond. Because the dog is part of an investigation, Lyle says it's now in the county's custody.
She says the owner also has about $600 in unpaid fines for nuisance cases and licensing violations.
