Cambridge Man Accused Of Killing A Dog

Posted: Updated:

CAMBRIDGE, Md. - A Cambridge man has been arrested after allegedly drowning a dog.

Cambridge Police say that on Thursday, December 13th, around 5:20 PM, witnesses watched 34-year-old James McCoy Jr., take the leash of the dog he was walking, and throw the dog into the water near Snappers Waterfront Café. He reportedly then told it "now swim", and walked away.

Officials say where McCoy threw the dog,  the bulkhead was high, and there would have been no way for the dog to get out of the water. Witnesses told police that the dog was swimming, apparently trying to find a way to get out, but when one witness jumped in to save the dog, but it had already died.

Police arrested McCoy on December 14th. He was charged with animal cruelty/inflict, animal cruelty/mutilate animal, and disorderly conduct. McCoy is being held on $10,000 bond at the Dorchester County Detention Center.
