Appleton man charged with kicking puppy to death over beer

by

APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - An Appleton man has been charged with a felony, after he allegedly kicked his roommate’s puppy to death because he couldn’t find any more beer in their refrigerator.

25-year-old Charles Vander Wielen is due in Outagamie County Circuit Court on November 13th, after being charged with mistreating an animal while causing death.

Police quoted Vander Wielen as saying he didn’t recall very much about the incident – but did remember getting angry after seeing no beer in the fridge, and then pacing around his apartment before he kicked what looked like a football.

Officers said he later admitted killing the dog, and then calling himself a danger to society.
