A heartless act of cruelty was recently observed in a Walmart parking lot in Slidell, Mississippi. According to Friday’s WGNO News, on August 10, horrified witnesses watched 39-year-old Louis Ladner beat his pit bull puppy for an agonizing 10 minutes before he tossed the screaming puppy into his trunk.
The shocked individuals who bore witness to the cruel situation called the local authorities- when the officers responded, they were initially unable to locate the puppy. Ladner himself took the officers to his trunk where the puppy had been stashed away after the beating.
Ladner’s pup was handed over to a “responsible party,” and the police took the alleged abuser off to jail on a charge of animal cruelty. The suspect is no stranger to the wrong side of the law – he is also facing outstanding warrants for aggravated battery with a dangerous weapon and operating a clandestine lab.
