Cruel man who tortured three puppies sentenced to prison

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.

Deformed dog or not? Strange photo is driving people crazy! I’ll admit, this one took me awhile to figure out.

    This freak will eventually move on to humans. His deeds will escalate if he is released. He will resume acting on animals then move on to humans.

      Totally agree Penny! Should have received the death penalty but by yogurt first in the same respect! Now when he starts a career of serial killing, looking at the direct correlation with animal abuse and serial killers , wonder if the Judge will wish he had made a different decision. Hope this POS burns in hell!

    Why suspend most of the sentence?! Six years is not nearly enough time! He pled guilty to five counts and each count was five years! 25 years for torturing those poor puppies is justice deserved! Again a mere slap on the wrist for abusing animals! The law needs to be changed and judges need to be more strict with animal abusers!

    5 years for each count was good, but suspending part of the sentence was not. At least he’ll get 6 years in prison, hopefully they won’t let him out for “good behavior.” RIP sweet puppies!

    He should be executed or tortured to death the same way he did to those puppies! He neither needs nor deserves any mercy! He is an abomination!

    I truly hope that this maggot named Brandon Gillie’s stay in prison is one of torture, intimidation, daily abuse and his punk white ass is used by every inmate there. May he end up shanked in the shower – I hope for nothing more than the worst six years of his life and may it end as cruelly and painful as he subjected those innocent puppies to. Useless waste that he is.

    Could someone PLEASE EXPLAIN to me why these damn judges dole out their sentences on animal abuse, then suspend it???? WHY DO YOU (COURTS & JUDGES) NOT REALIZE…….. any monster who can do this to a helpless animal…MUCH LESS PUPPIES…. is GOING TO HURT a human at some point? How many reports, surveys, articles do there need to be before the courts catch on? I think all the judges who do not hold these monsters responsible should be held LIABLE WHEN THEY HURT, KILL OR TORTURE another animal…..or a person!!! BECAUSE IT WILL HAPPEN.

    Put him away for life. Does not deserve to live. He is sadistic and would do the same to a human, even his so-called girlfriend. This is a future mass murderer.
