A man in Sarasota, Florida, is accused of kicking and injuring a puppy who was chained to a tree, reported ABC 7 News. The man accused of the cruel behavior, which resulted in the puppy suffering a broken leg, is identified as 36-year-old Toddrick Leverett.

Police were alerted to the situation on Saturday morning by witnesses who claim to have observed Leverett outside of a house on the 1100 block of 32nd Street. According to witnesses, Leverett repeatedly kicked the 25-pound pit bull puppy and then dragged her through the dirt.

The six-month-old puppy greeted responding officers in a friendly manner, despite one of her back legs being broken. The pup’s accused abuser showed signs of being intoxicated when the authorities responded to the scene.

The injured puppy was taken to Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services – her accused abuser is facing a charge for Aggravated Animal Cruelty.

    Drunk is NO excuse. Ban him from pets and put h in jail for a year. Maybe he’ll think about ever doing it again

    This evidence is undisputable. He better receive a MINIMUM of 5 years, $50,000 fine and life time ban on ever owning or living in the same home as another pet.
    The courts have got to start cracking down on these A.H.’s who think they are tough because they can abuse an animal. They are filthy, chicken monsters who attack animals because they are too afraid to pick on anyone their own size!

      O Pamela D’Angio – You took the words right out of my mouth – one other punishment Toddrick would be a trip to the wood chipper – that ensures he’d never hurt another animal.
