Uptown Man Kicked, Threw Elderly Dog "Because It Can't Walk And Move" Cops Say

An Uptown man kicked his elderly dog and threw it down a set of stairs because the pooch can’t do the things it used to do, prosecutors say.

Mazur | Chicago Police Dept
A Chicago police animal crimes team went to Anthony Mazur Jr’s home in the 800 block of West Sunnyside last Tuesday to investigate a complaint.

A neighbor gave the cops video and told officers that he saw Mazur kick the aging Dalmatian - Shar Pei mix in an alley until the dog relieved himself late last Monday night. The dog, unable to move, was then abandoned in the alley, officers reported.

After retrieving the dog, Mazur threw the animal down several stairs near his back door, the witness said.

Police said Mazur admitted to kicking the elderly Sharmatian “because the dog couldn’t do the things it used to do such as walk and move.”

Mazur later told police that he is recovering from a medical condition and he kicked the dog because he’s sad that he’s losing it, officers wrote in their report. “There’s no excuse,” Mazur allegedly said.

Prosecutors charged Mazur with one count of cruelty to animals and one count of violating animal ownership duties. He was released after posting $150 of a $1,500 bond. The dog was taken in for care by the city, according to police inventory records.

An online pet guide says Sharmatians are perfect for those who want “an intelligent dog who will get along with everyone in the family.”

  3. Inhumane and horrifying. Can we kick HIM and throw HIM down a flight of stairs because he's getting older? Oh my god. What kind of person does this to an animal? What "medical condition" could you be recovering from that would make you behave like this and think this is acceptable behavior? And he's out walking around after posting $150, while this poor animal is suffering. Is there any way we can get status updates on the dog's health and hopeful recovery? Who can we reach out for this?

  9. I'm embarrassed to say that I went to high school with this dick. He had a dog fundraiser a couple of months ago which I'm guessing by his actions he kept the money for himself.

  13. That poor, poor dog. It makes me sad that he suffered so much, and he needs even more care and love at this state of his life. I hope he's in a loving environment and goes to a good home. What that POS did was horrible on so many levels, and it's criminal he's not in jail.

  14. What a piece of shit. This is one event. Imagine what he's done when a neighbor hasn't been around to video his actions. Poor dog.

  15. Someone please print this article, his mugshot, and all these comments and distribute to his surrounding neighbors and workplace. If I was in town I'd do this and post in surrounding neighbors' mailboxes and mail to his workplace.

    People need to know about him. He's clearly a very violent person and likely has mastered hiding his violence to the general public and people need to be warned about his behavior.

    This is not normal behavior for any "medical condition". This is behavior typical of a violent person. What's next for this guy? Who's the next victim? An unsuspecting coworker? Someone's daughter?

    People who may be already noticing his odd behavior and see the suttle signs need to know about this. Thanks for posting CWB. Thanks for investigating and making the arrest CPD.

  18. Personally know this person, unfortunately. What astounds me is that I believe he was able to keep his other dog?????? He owns two, other is only 4 years old so imagine the years of abuse to come. I was under impression that if charged with these types of crimes-all pets are removed from home.

  20. I've seen this low life pissing in the alley with his dogs and he always left his dog shit all over our neighborhood sidewalks! What a Piece of Shit!!! at least those poor dogs are in a better place now, someplace he doesn't even deserve to be, what an evil man!

  21. This piece of shit should be banned from owning any pets ever! I hope someone kicks him down the stairs when he starts moving slower than when he was young. Does anyone have an update on the dog?
