Kyle Voissem, Chicago Man, Allegedly Dumped Boiling Water On His Dog

A Chicago man was charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty after he allegedly threw boiling water onto his dog, severely burning it after it urinated on the floor in his apartment.

Kyle Voissem, 20 of the 1700 block of South Desplaines Street in the city's East Pilsen neighborhood, reportedly became angry after he witnessed his dog urinating on the floor as he was boiling water to make macaroni and cheese on Tuesday, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Voissem then dumped scalding water onto his dog, leaving the pet with severe burns to its head and torso, according to CBS Chicago.

Voissem was arrested Tuesday afternoon and is scheduled to appear in court Jan. 26. No updates have yet been made public about either the dog's whereabouts or condition.
