In Hillsborough, Oregon, police arrested a man on Wednesday, caught on camera allegedly beating his dog, at a Shell gas station convenience store. William Abbe faces charges of attempted animal abuse, carrying a concealed weapon (a knife and brass knuckles), felon in possession and violation of release agreement.
A Hillsboro woman videoed the disturbing animal cruelty situation on Monday at the Shell gas station located on SE Baseline and Third Street. As the woman stepped off the bus to purchase a beverage, she noticed a man enter the store with his dog. Determined to help the dog she witnessed being abused, the woman immediately called authorities as well as the Oregon Humane Society. Recording the man’s cruel actions towards his dog would help provide the proof she needed:
“This guy comes in with his pup. His presence wasn’t easily ignored, and he walks in angrily yanking his dog up off the ground by the dog’s leash,” states Sunshine Alexandria on her Facebook page after sharing the video on social media. “The poor dog is so scared of being hit by this piece of human garbage again, so he doesn’t want to walk; he just lays down in submission.”
Alexandria describes the man’s anger and his frustration that his dog was so terrified and just cowered in utter submission, the man then proceeds to scream at the dog.
“…SCREAMING in the animal’s face and kicking it in the ribs, punching him, etc. while the dog just cries and lays there. What I was able to record was the last bit of the abuse and nothing compared to what I witnessed off camera,” Alexandria added.
According to KtpvNews, the dog named Darnell has been examined by a local veterinarian and was not seriously injured. On Thursday, police report stated that Darnell is doing find and will remain in protective custody. Darnell is expected to be moved to Bonnie L. Hays Animal Shelter.
Abbe is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday afternoon.
