A Miami Beach man was arrested on Thursday afternoon after neighbors claimed to have witnessed the man beating his puppy to death in broad daylight. And what was the puppy’s crime that he paid with his life? According to witnesses, the man said the puppy defecated in his apartment.

CBCMiami reports Woody Pierre, 20, tied his 25-pound black Labrador retriever puppy to a gate in front of the apartment complex located on Meridian Avenue;  then seen repeatedly beating the dog. Miami Beach police spokesman William Collado stated a neighbor heard a dog yelping and crying. When he went to see where the dog was, he saw Pierre hitting and kicking the puppy who had been tied to a fence. When the witness yelled and ran towards him, Pierre ran away.

“He was stomping away at a dog and actually filming what was going on,” Collado reported to the Florida Oracle.

Another witness said when the man started to hit and kick the dog, he called 911.

“I was holding something back from doing anything stupid and figured to get authorities involved because I’m not a cop. I let them handle it,” a witness stated.

When police and fire rescue arrived, they tried to save the dog and rendered first aid.  The witness had untied the severely wounded dog and carried it to the front courtyard. Unfortunately the dog died. Police were able to track down the owner of the puppy as Pierre and arrested him a short time later.

Pierre was transported to jail and faces animal cruelty charges. Police are trying to locate the video.

Rest in peace poor puppy.

    Beat this scum with a lead pipe until he is unconscious until he can move no longer. Then do it again to make sure. One less thing in this world to be afraid of (does it to innocent animals, so who is next).

    This POS doesn’t deserve to live. I don’t understand how anyone could hurt a puppy. It’s his fault that the puppy pooped in the apartment. A 25 lb lab puppy is probably no more than 4 months old. My lab was 15 lbs. at 8 weeks. I would like to tie him to a fence and beat the heck out of him. RIP pup, I’m sorry your human betrayed you.

    What kind of s sick individual inflicts this suffering on a puppy and has the audacity to film it, as though he is proud. No saving a mutant like this. Wish they could give a life sentence but even that is too easy for a twisted sadist capable of these heinous acts. Totally disgusting. I am glad the witness called 911 but if I see a puppy being murdered, I’m gonna have to scream and shout bloody murder at this man or run towards him like I’m insane and honestly, at a moment like this, I would be insane. The police just take too long; and this resulted in the puppy’s death. So sorry pup. RIP.

    What a disgusting POS…….
    Hope he is locked up forever with animal lovers who can give him “special attention”…….
    Hope the rest of his useless life is filled with pain and suffering. Execution would improve our planet since this POS is a waste of resources……
    RIP angel. The monster who did this to you will burn in Hell forever for his cruelty…….

    And NOBODY tried to stop him???????? They were ALL accessories to this crime! RIP poor puppy, your next life will be better. I hope this POS gets sent away for a good long time!

    They need to string him up like a pinata and let everyone beat the crap out him and see how he likes it. Heartless little freak.

    I’m glad they called the cops, but with a beating that bad being given by vermin that vicious, you don’t have time to wait for the cops. If you have to find someone to help you, throw rocks, get a gun, or whatever, you MUST stop the bastard!! Personally, I wish the person had a gun. Killing a do because he or she pooped in your apartment is ridiculous: if that SOS had bothered to be RESPONSIBLE and taken his dog outside, it never would have happened!!!!! He needs to be locked up and hopefully stay in jail for the rest of his miserable life.

    To the person who didn’t want to get involved but called law enforcement if you weren’t such a coward this puppy may have survived! The piece of shit who did this must be put in jail! He must never be allowed to have any animal ever again! Little one I’m so sorry you had to die like this! Rest now no more pain! You are free to run and play with new friends! Lots of food and cool clean water to drink! Good night sweet angel!

    Woody Pierre proved what a punk coward he is by running away when confronted. This useless sack of shit should be tied to a fence and get exactly what he gave to an innocent dog – a puppy is a puppy is a puppy and will defecate when it needs to UNLESS the owner has half a brain and take the dog outside and this punk is too stupid to understand that.

    If this moron ever has a child and the kid soils its diaper or whatever, the kid will probably find itself in the same situation as the dog–being beaten to death. This person–hardly a man in my estimation–should never be allowed to have or be around animals and should never be allowed to reproduce or be around children because they would suffer and die at his hand just for being animals or children. This jerk has no redeeming value–social or otherwise. I hope they lock him up and throw away the key.

    Didn’t want to get involved so called the police instead of intervening? I hope you can live with that, I wouldn’t be able to since the dog died! Looks like the bully ran when someone yelled at him anyway but it was too late! That poor puppy, I hope they put this POS away for a long time he doesn’t bring ANY worth to society at all!

    This Puppy at the very least deserves Real Justice! The Punishment Should Fit The Crime!! The Law is not set up to do that!! Street Justice is the only justice that will send a message to all the Dirt Bags out their that have No Compassion and Moral Compass! The SOB needs lots of attention, where ever he goes he needs to be reminded of his cruel act and his family needs to be spotlighted as well. POS people like this do what they do because nobody does anything and they get to fade back into life with no consicutious. They Will Do This Again!! He needs a good beat down and a lot of attention!!!!
