|Death: ||Nov., 2009, Lithuania|
Despite earlier reports that she was expected to survive, the dog thrown off a bridge in Lithuania has died, according to the Lithuanian website that has been credited with helping to track down the man who was videotaped doing the deed.
The man seen in the video was filmed by friends as he joked about proving "dogs can fly," then throwing the dog – named Pipiras, which means Pepper — off the side of the bridge.
Miraculously, the dog, whose whimpers can be heard on the video, survived the injuries initially but ended up succumbing to the injuries received as a result of the fall.
The dog, who reportedly belonged to a neighbor of the suspect, received treatment for multiple fractures and internal injuries. According to reports, the 22 year old man was upset with the dog for attacking his mother's chickens.
The dog was dropped from a bridge in the Vilkija district in Kaunas, the second largest city in Lithuania.
After the video appeared on Lithuanian websites, and then around the world, dog lovers helped identify the man. Upon learning of the hunt online, he turned himself in to police.
The man has been charged with animal cruelty. If convicted, he faces up to a year in jail.
