reports that DreamWorks Animation artist Young Song was arrested for killing his neighbor’s 16-month-old German shepherd. The puppy’s owner said he caught on video Song entering his backyard, shooting the dog with a pellet gun, bludgeoned it with a hammer and then dragging it out of the yard.
Song pled not guilty and was given a bail of $40,000, but remains in custody. He will next appear before the court on May 26. He was charged with a felony count of animal cruelty and a misdemeanor count of dog theft.
Song was a visual effects artist on such DreamWorks films as KUNG FU PANDA, SHARK TALE and MADAGASCAR 2. His live-action credits include THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS and MEN IN BLACK II.
