Kyle Voissem, 20, of the 1700 block of South Desplaines Street, was boiling water to make macaroni and cheese for his dinner when the dog urinated on the floor in his sight, police said.

Voissem got so angry that he doused the dog with the scalding water in the pot, police said. The animal was left with severe burns to the head and torso.

Voissem stands charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty, and is set to appear in court on Jan. 26, polic said.

Voissem is listed on the University of Illinois at Chicago Web site as a criminal justice major and gymnast.

Police could not say early Wednesday where the dog was, or provide information on the animal’s condition.

The Sun-Times Media Wire contributed to this report.

    Again with this BS – “Voissem stands charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty”

    Fux like this need to be taken out, PERIOD!!!!! He should be scalded and shot.

    Misdemeanor animal cruelty – really? Cruelty like this needs to be a FELONY with mandatory jail time. What if it had been a baby that soild it’s diaper – would this psycho do the same thing? Lock him up and throw away the key.

      Not any more. :-)

    I don’t understand how someone can have so little control over their anger or themselves that they would do something like that to an animal. Heaven forbid this “man” breeds and has children, it’s untelling what he would do if they did something wrong, if he acts like this over a dog urinating on a floor. Please someone get this guy fixed before he has children and does harm to them.

      Yes, dog owners should sterilize themselves.

    Handcuff him and then throw boiling water on him, and let him get burned. He’s sick, and shouldn’t be allowed to own pets. and good luck to any girlfriends he’s got.

    Better Yet boil some pee and throw it on him
