Queens, NY — Yuk Cheung, 35, has been charged with animal cruelty after allegedly tossing a 12-year-old pug off a seventh-floor balcony.

Yuk and his ex-girlfriend were apparently arguing about who would care for the dog after their recent breakup. It sounds to me as if Yuk was hoping to find a place to live where dogs were permitted.

The fight escalated, however, and the pup, Yoda, paid dearly.

At some point during the argument, Yuk grabbed Yoda and exclaimed, “(You) would not have to worry about the dog anymore,” and disappeared.

Moments later, Yuk reentered the apartment empty handed. When the ex asked about the missing canine, Yuk reportedly told her Yoda slipped and fell off the balcony.

When questioned by police four days later, Yuk told investigators that he tripped while walking out onto the balcony and the dog “left his hands.”

His story changed once more — while he was on the balcony, he said, the dog jumped out of his arms and somehow managed to get through the railing and fall 70 feet to her death.

Yuk told police he found Yoda dead on the street and placed her in a box with some ice before dumping her in a garbage can.

Police claim Yuk had to have thrown Yoda at least 40 feet into the air for her body to clear the balcony and end up in the street, six feet away from the curb.

Bail has been set at $10,000. If convicted, Yuk could spend up to two years behind bars.
