Man accused of duct-taping dog, beating pet with crowbar

A man in Houston, Texas, is accused of committed a heinous act of animal cruelty against his dog. According to Wednesday’s publication of the Houston Press, a dog’s head was wrapped in duct-tape and then the canine was beaten with a crowbar.

The man accused of the cruel deed is identified as 58-year-old Dwain Ray Riley, a man with a long history of criminal transgressions. In the most recent situation, which happened on July 23, Riley secured the dog, named “Mud,” to the wheel of a vehicle before beating him with the crowbar.

According to ABC 13 News, Mud was “seriously” injured in the beating – the dog “fled” the scene – no word on whether or not Mud was found and treated. Mud’s owner is facing a felony animal cruelty charge and could face up to two years in prison if he is convicted.

    And once again the same thing needs to be done to Mud’s owner. I think it would actually help knock some sense into his dumb ass

    BASTARD!!! Definitely deserves the exact same punishment he inflicted on his dog, except in his case it would be justice.

    I hope they find Mud and are able to treat him. Please let us know.

    Only 2 years for what this scum did to this poor dog and we don’t even know if the dog is alive. Hopefully someone saw him in this condition and saved him. This “thing”must be given the same torturous treatment he gave this dog. Tie his face up with duct tape and also hands and feet, and beat him with a crowbar for approximately 10 minutes. I am sure people would stand in line for this “upright citizen”. This is the face of what lives among up.

    This is a piece of shit! This thing has no reason to continue to breath so having said that if he is not sent to jail for what he did to Mud then he will suffer the same fate! The punishment must fit the crime! Gee have to make sure we get enough duct tape! Crow bar already have that!

    ABC 13 News says “Family members allege that Riley has beaten the dog before, although never with a crowbar” way to go “family” let the POS beat the poor dog. With this POS’s record why he is walking the streets free is anyone’s guess, he belongs in jail and not taping and beating his dog! I pray for poor Mud, I hope he survived and is ok! As for Dwain Ray Riley, May he burn in Hell!

      Did it before? That’s repulsive. I’m sure if any of us saw that happen, we would intervene as we have a zero tolerance for cruelty. One time many years ago, I “took” my cat Koko from her owners because of abuse. She lived for many years with love and freedom from abuse.

    He should have gotten life without parole and no appeal and the family should be arrested for aiding and abetting him! Does any one know how Mud is?

    Inhumain et intolérable. Ce monstre ne mérite pas de vivre. Il faut que les lois soient plus sévères. Tolérance zéro pour les barbares, les assassins d’animaux, il n’y a pas d’autre solution pour que ça s’arrête. Pas de pitié pour ces parasites, ces ordures. J’espère que le chien a été retrouvé et qu’il va vivre. Pauvre âme innocente.

    This worthless use of skin and life will hopefully be paid a visit by karma……and seriously hurt. I hope that poor precious dog ran somewhere safe and is being cared for. The monster who did this deserves life in prison.
