A Staten Island man was found guilty on Wednesday of repeatedly abusing his wife’s two-month-old Chihuahua puppy resulting in the dog’s death.  Jerry Moore, 39, was convicted of felony aggravated cruelty to animals. According to Pix11News,  Richmond County District Attorney Michael E. McMahon announced the following:

“This defendant mercilessly abused a defenseless puppy named Bambi over several weeks, causing such severe injuries that a veterinarian was forced to euthanize the two-month old Chihuahua. Today’s top-count felony conviction holds Mr. Moore accountable for his brutal actions and ensures that he will be put behind bars.”

Bambi weighed only two pounds, and on several occasions Moore either choked the puppy or threw her against the wall in the couple’s home. On the same day his wife returned home and found her puppy crying and unable to move, Moore threatened her and told her to “watch what she said to police.” The woman rushed her puppy to an emergency veterinarian; the dog died two days later. Her injuries were so severe that humane euthanasia was the only option. A necropsy determined Bambi died from traumatic brain injury caused by blunt force trauma.

Moore will be sentenced on April 26 and faces a two to four years maximum prison sentence. Let’s hope the judge helps Bambi get some justice. Rest in peace little one; you never had a chance to live and be loved.

    What a disgusting POS……. I would divorce this POS ASAP……..
    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…….

    Send the maggot SOS my way. I’ll gladly give “it” the sentence of all times. Two months and two pounds. I recently adopted a little 5-pound Chihuahua who was severely abused and as a result has brain damage. I can’t even imagine somebody doing that to a dog half the size of Poppy. I hope that SOS rots in jail and I hope somebody saws its balls off and shove them down its throat.

    This is one one dead piece of shit! You don’t hurt my babies! Hurt my babies and in me you will find the most merciless of humans! I don’t care what you do to other humans or even to me, but don’t fuck with an animal!

    What kind of man would abuse and kill such a tiny puppy??? A real loser, I say. I hope the prison inmates would make him a bitch and abuse him daily. Lets see if this “macho” man would try to hurt an adult Presa Canario or rottie. He would be the dead one. I’m sorry Bambi for the abuse and pain you experienced. Rest in peace little one.

    BASTARD!!! 2 to 4 years is the LEAST he deserves! I hope he gets the maximum, and a major beat down every single day he’s behind bars.

    That poor puppy, this woman knew what he was doing to the pup and yet she did nothing. If she wants to stay there and take his abuse that is on her but she allowed him to do it to an innocent little puppy! I hope and pray that Jerry Moore is put away for the maximum and that won’t be enough! And to Mrs Moore, shame on you for not protecting your little pup!

      I agree w/you Sue, if the maggot named Jerry Moore was consistently abusing this tiny being there is no way the wife was oblivious to the abuse – either she was abused herself (no excuse) or not concerned – regardless this little dog died due to the blatant cruelty of a friggin’ coward who could beat up a two lb dog – I hope there is some lethal street justice awaiting him – he deserves to be beaten down to a pulp and left to rot in the gutter.

    A maximum of two to four years in prison isn’t justice. It’s a travesty. I just hope that an animal lover in prison gets a chance to teach that POS a proper lesson.

      Dear Daniel,
      The animal lovers you refer to in prison, do not exist. If they do, they are NOT gang members and will have no ability to “get even”, so to speak. MANY gang members are involved in dog fighting rings and therefore do not care about animal cruelty. Those are the same people in prison so your hopes of prison justice is extremely unlikely. I have been actively involved in attempting to change the laws and on other issues regarding animal cruelty and torture for many years. I can guarantee you that retaliation for crimes against animals is not often seen or even heard of in prison……Crimes against children however, is an entirely different matter….So, apparently gang members care about kids.
      Sincerely, Beth Weekes

    La condamnation qui serait la plus juste, serait la condamnation à mort. Pas de pitié pour les assassins, les barbares.

    2 – 4 years in jail???? REALLY? That is not a sentence, that is a lazy persons vacation. He won’t have to work, pay bills, do anything but lay around on his lazy worthless POS A**!! When it is certain a person caused the death of an animal and torture… it should be a minimum of 10 years + $100,000 fine and life time ban on ever owning or living in the same home as a companion animal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
