This country is no place for a dog killer — that’s the view of City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. (D-Astoria), who has started a letter writing campaign to get just such an individual deported.

“He tossed his dog out of a window, so now we should toss him out of the country,” Vallone said.

The dog killer is Milan Rysa, an illegal immigrant from the Czech Republic living in Astoria, who last year threw his shar pei,  Brooklyn, out of a third-story window on Steinway Street to its death.

Rysa pleaded guilty to second-degree reckless endangerment and served two-thirds of his 364-day term, Vallone said. Now, he faces deportation. A hearing to decide his fate will be held in May.

Vallone, who is an avid animal rights supporter, has written letters to both the judge in charge of Rysa’s case and Immigration and Customs Enforcement encouraging deportation.

Rysa’s crime sparked outrage across Queens. Heavenly Angels Animal Rescue, based in Astoria, organized a protest vigil in Brooklyn’s memory outside Rysa’s apartment in the days following  the crime.

One attendee pasted a flier with the word “murderer” above a picture of the dead dog on Rysa’s building, while other attendees held photos of the bodybuilder with the words “puppy killer” written across them.

Vallone said anyone who wishes to write a letter in favor of Rysa’s deportation should address it to: Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Enforcement and Removal Operations, 26 Federal Plaza, 9th Floor, Suite 9-110, New York, NY 10278.

Rysa’s attorney could not immediately be reached for comment.   

Welcome to the discussion.

    Does anyone know if this jerk is still in the USA? I wrote a letter to Customs & Immigration in favor of having him deported but have not been able to find out any updates. The puppy's sad face will haunt me for the rest of my life.

    I absolutely agree that this Euro scum should be deported and permanently banned from ever re-entering the United States.
    His next toy will be some innocent child who will be similarly tossed when he has finished playing with it. He has the characteristics of a child molester and pervert.
    This country has no place for his kind of sub-human.
    INS - do your sworn duty and banish this bastard.
    People need be held responsible for their actions and his elimination will show we mean business.
