The cruel man who tortured three puppies sentenced in Petersburg, Virginia, on Tuesday and will be spending the next six years behind bars.
According to Nbc12News, Brandon Gillie, 27, pleaded guilty to five felony counts of animal cruelty in Petersburg Circuit Court on Tuesday. The case dates back to April 2016 when authorities were called to the rear of Gillie’s vacant trailer home, in what the police have stated, as one of the cruelest cases of animal torture they had ever seen. Detective Thomas Ewers, with the Petersburg Police Department, described the unimaginable abuse:
“He forced them to swallow several items, including fire crackers and poison. He cut their bodies open, and when he cut their bodies open, he also tried to glue it back together. He put glue over the dogs’ faces, including their muzzle, I guess in an attempt keep the dogs from being loud or trying to suffocate them.”
The pups were dismembered and mutilated while they were still alive; authorities believe the unbelievable cruelty went on for several hours. Gillie’s girlfriend found the bodies of the puppies and called police. Necropsies of the dogs revealed the puppies’ stomachs contained over the counter and prescription medications, as well as insecticides. News station Wtvr6, reported the puppies were also burned.
Ewers stated the torturing was a “process.”
Gillie was sentenced to five years for each count, however most of the sentence has been suspended.
