Man accused of kicking his dog

Elgin police are looking for a man accused of animal cruelty.

Gregory R. Griffin, 38, faces two misdemeanor charges after witnesses told police they saw him kicking his dog while its head was stuck in a door.

The dog had fractures to both hind legs and needed surgery to repair the damage.

The six-month-old dog was named “Liberty” by animal control officers.

After about eight weeks of recuperation, “Liberty” will be placed for adoption by the Golf Rose Animal Shelter in Schaumburg.

    Mr. Griffin: Hope they find you (and they will!) and you get the maximum sentence/fine allowable by law.
    You are a big brave man kicking a puppy that is not even able to run away. You are sick and if you have a wife/children, I hope they get as far from you as possible, because Mr. Brave Griffin is capable of doing this to them! Mr Griffin, to sum it up: You are a coward and you disgust me and many others!
