A San Antonio man is accused of animal cruelty after witnesses saw him hurl a dog and cat out of a second-floor window of a Northwest apartment complex.

Fernando Morgan, 46, was arguing with his girlfriend after she told him to leave her Warren Inn Village apartment and never come back, according to News4San Antonio.

Rather than do just that, Morgan allegedly threw her pets – a 6-year old dog named Ruby and a cat named Midnight – out of the window into the parking lot. According to a press release from the City of San Antonio, witnesses said Ruby was thrown twice during the argument and slammed into a concrete staircase.

The dog is currently recovering in an Animal Care Services clinic. She suffered multiple injuries, including a cracked pelvis and ribs as well as two broken legs. Ruby will most likely be sent to a rescue group after recovery. Meanwhile, Midnight, who only suffered minor injuries, is available for adoption at ACS.
