Cline, Brian

 Animal Abuse Registry

January 2022 – Brian Cline (43) was sentenced to five years probation for beating a toy poodle to death.  Cline pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated cruelty to animals, a class “E” felony. Prosecutors allege Cline intentionally hit and kicked a toy poodle in March of 2020. The owner found the dog dead in its crate the next morning. A neighbor gave Sheriff’s Office deputies surveillance footage after hearing about the dog’s death. The footage showed Cline striking and kicking the animal. A necropsy determined the dog died from blunt force trauma. Erie County Court Judge Susan Egan issued an order that prohibits Cline from owning an animal for five years in addition to a no-contact order of protection on behalf of the owner of the toy poodle that remains in effect until 2030.
