Brooklyn dog survives six-story fall from roof

oreoA one-year-old dog survived being thrown off the roof a six-story housing project in Brooklyn.

Though all her legs were broken and had to be repaired with plates and screws, she was expected to survive.

Fabian Henderson, 19, was charged with throwing the female dog off the roof of a building in the Red Hook Houses.

Several people called 911 to report a dog had gone off the roof and police found the black and white terrier mix on the ground six floors below, the New York Post reported.

The dog also suffered internal bruising and damage to her lungs. Investigators have nicknamed her Oreo for her black-and-white markings.

Henderson, who claimed the dog jumped off the roof, was charged with of animal cruelty and reckless endangerment.

i just wanted to say that i’m very very glad that she is in good health. people need to know that animals have feelings and personalities of thier own. they deserve to be treated as we want to be treated. if i had a house of my own i would take her in. may god bless her with a wonderful home with people that luv her.

RIP Oreo.
That poor excuse of a human should be brought into a wooded area, tied to a tree and left there…or perhaps, pushed out of a plane sans parachute.
Do animal abusers in Brooklyn get heavily fined along with jail time? Hope so.
