Enraged Brazilian man strikes wife with pet poodle

A Brazilian man, who suspected his wife of having an affair, hit her in the head with a pet poodle in a fit of jealous rage according to the Associated Press.

The man (unnamed as he has not been charged) picked up the dog and swung it twice into her head, killing the dog. Inspector Thais Norah Sartori Postiglione says the woman, Carla de Camargo Olivieri, suffered only minor bruises.

Officers decided that the attack was not highly dangerous to the woman and that he was not caught in the act, but they are urging authorities to charge him with assault and battery, plus cruelty to animals.
