In Miami Beach, Florida, police have arrested and charged a 40-year-old man for allegedly beating a Yorkie and leaving the severely injured dog in a Publix supermarket parking garage near a trash receptacle. According to NbcNewsMiami, Sigman Hernandez, has been identified as the man captured on surveillance cameras near where the dog was found dying.

According to Hernandez, who turned himself in after detectives called him and asked him to come to the police station to answer questions, he told authorities he found the dog in an alley near the Publix and decided to take it into the garage so it wouldn’t get run over.

“I didn’t hurt the dog. It wasn’t even my dog,” Hernandez told news reporters.

The Yorkshire terrier, dubbed Lily by her rescuers, was found by an employee in the garage located at West Avenue on April 7. The six-pound dog was rushed to an emergency veterinarian hospital in critical condition by responding police officers. Upon examination, veterinarians determined that Lily had seven broken ribs on her left side and two broken ribs on her right side. Her neck was also swollen, and her eyes were bloodshot indicating she may have also been strangled. Despite doctors doing their best, Lily died two days later.

The surveillance video captured a man in a red Toyota Yaris in the garage the day Lily was found. The man can be seen removing something from his car. At one point he is seen moving up and down – in the spot where Lily’s dying body was found. At that time, he may have stomped on Lily police stated.

“It is strongly suspected that the subject may have been stomping on ‘Lily’s’ body since he lingered in the spot where she was eventually found but it’s unclear in the video at this time,” detectives claim.

      I can’t imagine the horror this poor yorkie suffered at the hands of a worthless . dirty. POS. Individual. I would love to spend 5 minutes with the POS and see how well he comes out of it if he was on the receiving end of a beating like that.

    Hernandez if you are reading this I would beat the living shit out of you plus everything you have done to this poor dog. This POS couldn’t take on his own size this fat MotherFu@%er. He is nothing but a useless scumbag that needs to be tortured and left to die. I hope he gets cancer and fucking rot.

    What a liar, if he found this little dog like this, why didn’t he just call animal control. He did the deed! I hope this POS rots in jail!

      Ils devraient être utilisés pour la recherche à la place des animaux. Ils ne coûteraient rien à la société. Tout les barbares devraient être utilisés pour ça.
