LOS ANGELES (AP) – A man who was caught on video throwing his dog off a cliff in Southern California has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Los Angeles County prosecutors say Andres Spancky Raya was sentenced Wednesday after pleading no contest last month to a felony animal cruelty charge.

Prosecutors say the 21-year-old threw his female pit bull mix, Mary Jane, off a hillside cliff into a ravine below on two different days last year. They say the dog was tossed about 145 feet down.

The incidents were caught on a neighbor’s surveillance video and the dog was later rescued.

Raya’s sentence also includes a prison time for an unrelated first-degree residential burglary case.

  1. You’re kidding? 5 years for that and 1st degree burglary. Can they throw that POS off the same cliff before they send him to prison?
