An 11 year old Saratoga Springs girl killed her temporary foster mom’s puppy on Sunday, July 8, 2012, because she couldn’t get her way. It happened not far from the Albany area, near Lake George.

In a story that I read in the Times Union, the girl wanted to go somewhere, but the foster mother denied her that privilege. The little girl went and hurt the woman’s King Charles spaniel puppy. The injuries caused the puppy to die.

The girl had two charges - felony counts of criminal mischief and cruelty to animals.

I have to wonder, if this little girl can do this to a puppy, what will she do when she grows up?
