Authorities need public’s help finding man who broke puppy’s leg ‘disciplining’ him

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office in Tavares, Florida is asking for the public’s help finding the owner of a puppy who broke a puppy’s leg allegedly telling his neighbors he was “disciplining” the pooch. On the Facebook page of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, authorities announced they have issued an animal cruelty complaint for David Pollard.David Pollard

On January 27, Pollard, 25, was witnessed attempting to “discipline” the puppy for running into the neighbor’s yard at which time the frightened dog hid under a vehicle. Pollard, then using the wooden handle of a rake, poked the puppy violently to get him out of his hiding spot. When the puppy finally came out from underneath the truck, neighbors saw the puppy limping and holding up his left hind leg.David Pollard 3

Authorities were notified and a Lake County deputy and Animal Control officer responded to 35826 Lakewood Drive in Leesburg.  The puppy was seized and brought to the Emergency Veterinary Clinic  where veterinarians discovered he suffered from a fractured left rear leg. A warrant has been issued for Pollard charging him with felony animal cruelty. Anyone with information about Pollard’s location is asked to call the Lake County Sheriff’s Office at 352.343.2101.

    Find this F*CK (BEFORE the authorities do) and “discipline” HIM it the same manner… making is easier for the authorities to apprehend, prosecute and incarcerate him!
    Hope that precious little pup recovers fully, and finds a truly loving, PROTECTIVE forever home…
