A man was so infuriated his dog had urinated on the floor he threw boiling water at the pup while cooking a meal, causing severe burns to the animal’s head and torso in the East Pilsen neighborhood, police said.
Kyle Voissem, 20, was boiling water to make macaroni and cheese for dinner at his home in the 1700 block of South Desplaines Street when he saw his dog urinate on the floor, according to police.
Voissem became angry and threw the “extremely hot water’’ on the dog, causing severe burns to the dog’s head and torso, police said.
He was arrested about 1 p.m. today while wearing a sweatshirt that said “Bulldog Pride” police said.
Voissem, who police said is originally from Wisconsin, was charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty and is expected to appear in Misdemeanor Court, on Jan. 26.
The dog’s whereabouts and condition were not immediately known. Animal Care & Control spokesman Andreas Morgen said he had no information about the incident late Tuesday.
