NY man arrested on charges he drowned dog

Posted: Updated:

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a New York man has been arrested after he bound his girlfriend's dog and drowned it in the Hudson River.

27-year-old Matthew Wisell of Glens Falls was arrested late Friday on a charge of aggravated animal cruelty.

The small dog was found dead in the Hudson River on Thursday. Its snout and legs were bound in black tape.

Police say Wisell killed the dog because of behavioral problems.

They say the dog belonged to Wisell's girlfriend. She was not charged.

Wisell was being held pending arraignment. It was not clear if he had a lawyer.

Aggravated animal cruelty is punishable by up to 2 years in state prison.
