CINCINNATI -- A Price Hill man won’t be allowed to have any more pets after police said they saw him slam a puppy to the ground.
Miles B. Howard was seen yelling at a puppy, then forcefully throwing it down, according to police.
A judge sentenced Howard to two years probation on Monday and he’s not allowed to own any more pets.
Howard defended himself to police by saying it was his dog and he could do whatever he wanted with it.
The puppy escaped with only minor injuries.
The dog was handed over to SPCA in Cincinnati, where it was cared for.
