Nashville, TN — A 27-year-old man was jailed on animal cruelty charges after allegedly dumping a Shih Tzu in a trash compactor at an apartment complex, and activating the machine multiple times.

A woman heard the pup whimpering and crying in the machine and called 911.

“I went to go throw my garbage in and I heard some whimpers,” the woman said. “I stuck my head in there and said ‘hey baby.’ It was a little doggie.”

The dog died four days later.

Surveillance video showed Terrence Clark pull up in a car, take the dog from the back seat and place it in a grocery bag. He is then seen putting the bag in the compactor and hitting the button to activate the machine four times, before driving off.

The dog, police say, belonged to his mother.

Clark is being held on $65,000 bond. He apparently has quite a lengthy criminal history, including an arrest for attempted first degree murder. Swell fella, eh?

For those who are unaware, like myself, Tennessee is the first state to adopt a statewide animal abuse registry. And it sounds like a handful of other states may be trying it on for size.
