The shocking number of animal cruelty cases reported every day but most cases are never reported or neglected. Unlike violent crimes against people, cases of animal abuse are not compiled by state or federal agencies, making it difficult to calculate just how common they are. Cruelty and neglect cross all social and economic boundaries and media reports suggest that animal abuse is common in both rural and urban areas.
Here is an example of animal abuse that should need to take just and fair action to be taken against the criminal. James is a Florida man who is now facing a felony charge for the event that took place recently. James was working as a groomer when this awful incident took place. The whole thing was caught on tape and James has a lot of explaining to do. When the dog would not move in the manner that James wanted them to, he decided that he would get violent with the animal and tortured it.
Intentional cruelty to animals is strongly correlated with other crimes, including violence against people. Hoarding behavior often victimizes animals. Sufferers of a hoarding disorder may impose severe neglect on animals by housing far more than they are able to adequately take care of. Serious animal neglect is often an indicator of people in need of social or mental health services. Surveys suggest that those who intentionally abuse animals are predominantly men under 30, and are more likely to be women over 60.
James grabbed the poor dog by their tail and tried to lift them off the ground with it. Of course, the tail snapped in his hands, leaving the dog in a constant pain. He definitely deserved tough trial for this harsh act, according to the law.
The animals whose abuse is most often reported are dogs, cats, horses and livestock. Undercover investigations have revealed that animal abuse abounds in the factory farm industry.
In addition, he took the hose that he was using for the grooming process and hit her in the head with it. The graphic video should not be watched by anyone who has a weak heart. Even the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office was shocked by what took place. Deputies say that this is one of the most terrific crimes that should have charged with severe punishment.
To put a stop to this pattern of violence, the Humane Society Legislative Fund supported the Pets and Women’s Safety (PAWS) Act. The PAWS Act would give victims of domestic abuse means to escape their abusers while keeping their companion animals safe—many victims remain in abusive households for fear of their pets’ safety.
To make matters worse, this is a service dog. TT works with a veteran who is struggling with post traumatic stress disorder. Looks like this man picked the wrong pooch to mess with. We hope that justice is done on her behalf and please, do not watch the video below if you do not wish to see the graphic images that are contained within.
