An ex-boyfriend was caught in the act of animal abuse after a closed circuit television surveillance footage revealed the Swainswick, Bath man kicking his girlfriend’s Jack Russell several yards into the air with his steel toe capped boots after a domestic argument,  Fraser Grant, 28, booted the small dog, named Patch so hard, the veterinarian examining the dog after he was brought in by the couple, revealed the dog most likely died of a ruptured liver and blood loss.

According to the Mirror, Patch had been a friendly and easy-going pooch, but had been scared of Grant. One afternoon, when the couple had been sitting outside of a local pub, the two argued. Grant claimed the dog had bitten his lip while having a seizure, and he kicked the dog because he had been aggressive. Prosecutor, Lindi Meyer told the judge a different version of what happened to Patch:

“The couple had been drinking after work. Grant was wearing steel toe capped boots and they had left the three dogs in his truck outside the pub. They returned to get the dogs, but realized they had no leads. An argument then ensued.”

And while Grant was outside of a toll bridge and a surveillance camera was operating, he could be seen violently kicking the dog numerous times. When Patch stopped breathing and his tongue went limp, the two brought the dog to a veterinarian who noticed multiple bruise marks; concluding Patch suffered blunt force trauma to his body.

“Grant was interviewd by the RSPCA,” stated Officer Meyer. “He said Patch was spinning around and attacked his ankles and legs, causing him to fend him off with his boots. He said he picked him up but was bitten in the face.”

Initially Grant denied he hurt Patch, but as his trial grew closer, he pleaded guilty. He is scheduled to be sentenced in October and remains free on bond.

Rest in peace Patch. What happened to you was unforgivable. Will you get justice?

    Another POS free on bond. Bet he gets a slap on the wrist like all the rest of them. He should be introduced to the working end of steel toed boots and see how he fairs.

    FREE ON BOND??? Those two degenerates should have been locked up right away. No parole, no community service, no anger management, no “counseling.” Stomp the two of them to death with steel toed boots until they are both dead!

    Oh my God! Where is his girlfriend who this dog belongs too? Not one word from her telling what really happened. Is she afraid he will abuse her if she tells? The police better investigate this story and this girl better reveal what really happened so he can be locked away for good. Needs to speak up at least to protect the other two dogs and in memory of her dog that he killed.

    I hope his useless piece of flesh is sentenced for YEARS and FINED THOUSANDS of dollars….. given a life time ban on every owning or living in the same home as another pet. This man is a scum bucket, waste of working organs….send him to prison, lock him in a cell with an animal lover and let karma happen.

    It takes a BIG man to kick and kill a little dog, and where was the “girlfriend” while he was doing this? They both need to be charged and neither should ever own a dog again! It’s good to know he is walking around free waiting for this “slap on the wrist” as I’m pretty sure that is ALL he will get!

    I’m sure it wasn’t the first time Patch was abused by this asshole. I’m not convinced his girlfriend wasn’t aware of it. She’s also an asshole for allowing this to happen.

    This is extremely heartbreaking, sad, and horrific! Such a beautiful, friendly, sweet little pup despicably abused and mistreated! Precious Patch, I’m so very sorry you were so horribly failed by the sub-humans who were suppose to love, protect, and care for you. Poor innocent Patch suffered excruciating pain, horrific abuse, cruel torture, agonizing fear, and profound betrayal! The soulless evil monster that horribly abused and viciously murdered this sweet helpless little pup must be severely punished! Prosecute that dangerous scumbag to the maximum extent! We must be the voice for voiceless innocent animals. Angel Patch, Rest in Sweet Heavenly Peace, you are now in the tender loving care of Jesus.
