In an unbelievable incident, a 4-year-old boy killed the family dog. His mother discovered the family’s new dog lifeless in the garden and when she reviewed CCTV footage, she found that his own son had thrown the puppy out of the window which leads to the dog’s death.

According to the Metro, the mother wrote on Mumsnet that, “He instantly said it was him in a very quiet voice. I did not deal with his punishment in the correct way. I have probably traumatised him. I shouted at him whilst tears were falling from my eyes as I felt for the puppy not him. He looked very sad with bloodshot eyes, no tears.”
According to an article in Psychology Today, psychologist Joni Johnston wrote: “This is usually a preschool child who has not developed the cognitive maturity to understand that animals have feelings are not to be treated as toys. This may be the child’s first pet or s/he doesn’t have a lot of experience or training on how to take care of a variety of animals.
