Last week, Isaias Lerner-Biber, a South Florida cardiologist who worked with the South Broward Physicians Group in Coconut Creek, was arrested for beating a dog to death with a hammer.

He was released from jail on Wednesday.

The very next day, he shot himself in the head.

Lerner-Biber had been charged with one count of animal cruelty with intent to kill.

Last week, witnesses say they saw the 65-year-old Lerner-Biber hitting a dog tied to a tree over the head with a hammer, according to the arrest report. He also reportedly stabbed the dog in the ear and throat with a screwdriver. Moments after the savage beating, the dog slumped to the ground and died.

Police were then called to the doctor's home on East Broadview Drive in Bay Harbor Islands.

The arrest affidavit says that Lerner-Biber "struck the dog an unknown amount of times on the head with a hammer" and that "the dog was yelping and appeared to have brain matter emitting from its head."

The doctor was released Wednesday after posting $5,000 bond. On Thursday afternoon, Bay Harbor Islands cops responded to a call of a shooting at Lerner's home. Police found Lerner-Biber's body inside the home. His death has been ruled a suicide.

When I first heard of this, him killing that poor baby I was in shock they let him out of jail. By him killing himself maybe he wasn't in his right mind what he did that to a defenceless animal. Better to be dead then live with that for the rest of your life.

Really? I cant feel sorry for him or his family because they had to know what he was like. He took the cowards way  out because he should have been made to suffer just like that dog did. He was sick and twisted and took out his  frustration on that poor dog. There are special circles of hell created for men like him and he went there I am very sure of it!
