(CBS/AP) LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. - Police said an 11-year-old girl is accused of killing a 3-month-old puppy over the weekend because she was angry her temporary foster mother wouldn't take her out.

Troopers reportedly said the girl was just brought to the Lake George home for respite care shortly before the incident happened on Sunday.

Police said the girl wanted to go someplace but the woman said no. Then the girl allegedly slammed the puppy against the floor and bed post until it was dead. The dog was a King Charles spaniel, a toy breed.

The girl was charged with felony counts of criminal mischief and cruelty to animals and the case was referred to Warren County Family Court. Her name wasn't released.
