$100,000 bond set for man accused of animal abuse

On Thanksgiving morning, the man accused of torturing “Ollie” the dog in Hollywood, Florida stood in front of Judge Betsey Benson who ordered his bond set at $100,000 due to the seriousness of the crime. Brendan Evans, 31, has been accused of causing the violent  abuse and torture of a pit bull found in a blue suitcase.

 

According to the Sun Sentinel, private attorney Sarah Anne Mourer, representing Evans, was not surprised at the high bail set, although an aggravated animal cruelty charge is a  third degree felony and bond can be set between $5,000 and $50,000. Evans was arrested on Wednesday. Ollie the dog, had been discovered on October 10, in an alley; he had been stuffed in a blue suitcase – only his paw stuck out. The dog was barely alive, but veterinarians had hoped to save his life.

The dog suffered from more than 50 stab wounds. He had severe lacerations to the top of his head as well as his body and had been wearing a red collar. The cruelty inflicted upon this dog sent shivers through the country. A reward had been offered just shy of $60,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for such a heinous deed. More than $100,000 in donations had been raised for Ollie; Grateful Paws collected $40,000 to help pay his medical bills.

Hollywood Police spokesperson stated Ollie’s case was one of the most horrific cases of animal cruelty officers had ever seen. Despite the best veterinary care, the love and encouragement volunteers and well-wishers around the world offered, Ollie succumbed to his injuries two days later.

When authorities arrived at Evans’ home and confronted him with the DNA evidence about Ollie as well as the discovery of mutilated animals with blood symbols  scrawled on the walls, Evans allegedly told police he had the right to torture the animals because he had been practicing voodoo and considered himself a voodoo priest.

    There are words in the Bible, a great many– stating God does promise to deal with people that claim to believe because they are suppose to be human they have such rights as abusing animals. No such right exists so far as God is concerned. Animals and humans are loved equally. We need to be taught this more widely-people keep committing acts that curl your hair and wrench on your heart. These so called people just have to be permanently removed from society. There is no recourse. Updates on this story please. Do not allow a blip in justice to happen!

    Does anyone know if Ollie was acquired through Craigslist or if he was found as a stray, etc.? Did we ever find out if he has an owner?
