People who beat their pets are ones that make me sick, including this story.

The Animal Rescue League of Iowa received several calls concerning a 21-year-old woman's mistreatment of her dog. According to "WeAreIowa", in December of 2019, Yelena Barr was arrested on a charge of animal neglect and the next day she was released she bought a new dog off of Craigslist. The dog named Toby unfortunately did not end up at a loving home though.

ARL then proceeded to receive several calls about Yelena's treatment towards her dog citing accounts hitting, throwing and even choking Toby.  When the ARL medical team examined Toby, they found large bruises from the injured eye to the top of the head among others. Yelena was arrested and pleaded guilty to animal neglect and is serving 30 days in jail. Toby is being taken care of by the Animal Rescue League of Iowa at this time.
