Ga Girl Accused of Killing Foster Mom's Puppy

ALBANY, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia authorities say an 11-year-old girl killed her foster mother's puppy because the woman refused to take her somewhere.

The Albany Times Union quotes authorities as saying the incident happened Sunday at a townhome where the girl was placed for care.

Trooper Mark Cepiel says the girl asked to go somewhere and the foster mother refused. The trooper says the girl later caused injuries to the dog, which died.

The puppy was a King Charles Spaniel, but Cepiel wouldn't say how it died.

The girl was charged with felony counts of criminal mischief and animal cruelty.

    She needs mental help, not charges.Charging a young person with animal abuse and not getting her any medical help is not helping.What she suppose to do, extra home work, do some sort of community work, not be around any animals, What ? She needs to talk to a child psychiatrist.
