A puppy was punched in the head

Man charged with punching puppy in head for soiling his car

A Tweeds Head, South Wales man faces animal cruelty charges for punching a Bull Mastiff puppy in the head with his fists – so hard that the man’s hands were bleeding. The disturbing incident occurred on Thursday in a shopping mall parking lot and had been witnessed by people who had serious concerns for the puppy’s safety.

According to the Tweed Valley Weekly, when authorities arrived they  “immediately noticed the male had blood on his knuckles and that the dog had a laceration and blood around its snout.” The yet unidentified man acted aggressively towards the police, and admitted he had been angry with the dog for defecating his vehicle.

The puppy has since been in the care of the RSPCA who have stated the man will be charged with animal cruelty.

Maybe the puppy had to go for a walk? Maybe it takes awhile to house train a puppy? Maybe someone like this man should never be allowed to own a dog? Many thanks to the eyewitnesses who reported the abuse and possibly saved this puppy’s life. Be the voice for those who cannot speak.

    Hopefully the court will do it’s job now and send the man away to prison for a long time. He should never be allowed to own any animals ever again!

    I want to punch this SOB in the face! A puppy is a baby. Would you punch a baby in the face? Training a puppy is a lot of work and requires a great deal of patience. If the pup has an accident, its your fault! What a dumb ass!!!! I’m happy the puppy was taken away from this abuser.

    In a strange twisted way thank goodness this happened and that the dog was taken away, otherwise, it would have lived a life of severe abuse and possibly death at the hands of this asshole.

    This unnamed man needs a massive dose of street justice – his actions toward an innocent animal who soiled his fucking car is so maddening – too lazy to walk this dog, no punch him in the head – what a damn idiot – I hope he gets exactly what he deserves – becoming a victim of some predatory inmates – he needs to be jacked up big time.
