    A Dover, New Hampshire man was charged with animal cruelty after he allegedly threw a small black and white dog into a dumpster.

    A New Hampshire man was charged in Massachusetts with animal cruelty after he allegedly threw a dog in a dumpster because he was "tired" and that the pet would not "stop bothering him," according to authorities.

    Police in Wareham say 28-year-old James Balboni of Dover, New Hampshire, was staying with another man in town when he threw the pooch in a commercial dumpster.

    Authorities received an animal cruelty call on Sunday and responded to a home on 3030 Cranberry Highway. There, they saw a man described as "visibly upset" removing a small black and white dog from the dumpster.

    An officer determined that man was the dog’s owner and was told that the pup was thrown by Balboni. A witness also told the officer that a man was seen leaving the dog owner’s home and throwing the pooch over his head.
