On Thursday, the Pet Rescue Report published a disturbing article about a litter of puppies beaten to death by a Missouri man wielding a baseball bat. On Friday, a photo and the name of the dude allegedly behind the gruesome and cruel incident was published in Ozarks First.
The man identified as the alleged puppy killer is identified as 30-year-old Josiah David Wheat; he is facing five felony counts of animal cruelty for allegedly beating the young, black and white puppies to death with an aluminum baseball bat.
The authorities were alerted to the cruel deed after viewing a video, reported to have been taken by Wheat himself, showing the pups being bludgeoned 16 times with the bat.
