The Tuesday, February 27, New York Times has an article by Judy Battista, in the sports section (D4) headed, “Latest Mess For N.F.L.: The Death Of a Dog.”

It tells that Jonathan Babineaux, a defensive tackle who just finished his second season with the Atlanta Falcons, killed his girlfriend’s dog:

“A dog belonging to Babineaux’s live-in girlfriend died last week, and Babineaux was charged with felony animal cruelty. The dog, Kilo, was a 1 1/2-year-old pit bull mix” and “the police have said the dog died of blunt force trauma to the head.”

We read:

“Babineaux and his girlfriend, Blair Anderson, argued last Sunday, and Anderson was at the movies when Babineaux called to tell her she should come home to check on the dog, according to the police.

“When she got there, the dog was in ‘severe physical distress,’ the police said. Kilo vomited blood in the car as Anderson drove to the Animal Emergency Center in Lawrenceville, Ga. He was pronounced dead at the hospital. Doctors called the police.
