Ponce Inlet Police in Florida charged the owner of a nine-month-old Lab retriever with animal cruelty after the puppy was found dead on Saturday night at a home on Aurora Street. Authorities responded to calls from neighbors who reported hearing a loud noise. Another neighbor heard a dog yelping in fear and obvious pain.

According to WeshNews, Travis Archer, 43, was arrested for pummeling  his black Labrador retriever named Ponce to death. When police arrived, they saw a hole in the wall where Archer threw the dog. They also found a bloodied knot rope he allegedly used to repeatedly beat the dog; a part of the fence had been broken and their laid Ponce. The puppy had been chained up and left to die with his head resting against the fence. Police stated the dog appeared to have been gagged and had been bleeding severely from its mouth. Officers said they also found blood stains all over the fence next to the dog’s body. 

 

Archer defended his actions telling officers, after he arrived home and found the mess, he hit Ponce twice in order to discipline him, but claimed the dog bit him in the hand. Police found only a small cut on his hand. He refused to comment about the puppy’s death.

It was a bloody scene,” Police Chief Frank Fabrizio said. “Very sad, this sub-human should never be able to own an animal again,” told the Daytona Beach News Journal. Ponce weighed about 70 pounds and  no other pets were found in the home. Archer now faces charges for felony animal cruelty that caused death, pain and suffering

    The more I read, the angrier I became. Subhuman is right! This piece of pond scum needs to be beaten to death the same way he beat that puppy, totally without mercy, because a thing this evil should NOT be allowed to breathe.

    Disgusting! Break his legs and then beat the hell out of him. I have a beautiful 10 year old chocolate lab and yes as a puppy she was hell on wheels. I can’t imagine hitting her when she gets the zoomies (running crazy, bouncing off the walls, shredding paper etc.). Lab puppies need lots of training, praise and patience. This person should never be allowed to have another living pet. In fact, this asshole doesn’t deserve to live!!!!

    This sorry bastard needs to have the same done to him. I am so sick of these abusers getting a damn slap on the hand and no more animals. I would love to beat the living shit out of this asshole and hope he gets tortured and left to die in agony. What a rotten mental scumbag hope he gets cancers and rots and gets tortured in jail if he gets jail time. Animal abusers don’t get shit for what they do.

        Kristina we all say that the laws need to change but good strong anti cruelty laws are introduced CONSTANTLY to the law makers and CONTANTANTLY denied to the American citizens!! We vote these law makers into office to be our voice and to enact the laws that we want for our society! I would love to see,on an appointed day,all the animal lovers and animal advocates take to the streets in protest and DEMAND change!! For the life of me I don’t know what the law makers and the judicial system find so OFFENSIVE and DIFFICULT about enact and enforce good strong protection laws for companion animals! I’m convinced that this iswhat the majority of the American people want! STOP ALLOWING SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS TO RUN THE SHOW BEHIND THE SCENES!! I swear it’s like u have buy laws in this country!! The American people need to ban togeather and DEMAND CHANGE!!!!

    This POS needs to be put away from society. What if this had been his child! Poor Ponce, what that poor puppy suffered at the hands of this monster is just breaking my heart! This fool needs to be charged with more than a felony and the punishment needs to be more than a slap on the wrist and anger management classes!

    Unbelieveable. Archer was released on his own recognizance Sunday. I guess the judge didn’t think that Ponce’s life was worth any bail. Since it happened in Florida, I shouldn’t be surprised. The justice system isn’t big on justice for humans, so what is the beating death of a 9 mo old black lab worth.

    • Barkley's Mom says:

      I agree with you, since the dog allegedly bit him after he beat the poor thing, the judge will probably consider the dog’s death the correct punishment. I have seen too many dogs confiscated and held in Florida for dog bites with the judges giving them a death sentence. This POS will walk with very little, if any, punishment.

    I’m crying for this poor poor baby! It should be a law in every state that if caught hurting or killing a companion animal that you are put on a NATIONAL animal abuse registry! If u are on that registry you can NEVER LEGALLY own ANY type of animal! All rescues and shelters also should be required by law to check that registry! I’m mortified,horrified and sick to my stomach over this horrific case! I PRAY THIS EVIL MONSTER GETS THE MAXIMUM SENTANCE ALLOWED! And I hope he gets the shit beat out him while incarcerated! So fucking unfair,this poor dog deserves justice!! What a horrific end to his innocent young life!

    Again, an idiot with an out-of-control temper beats a dog to death because a puppy messed up his home. Now, it’s up to the Judge to give this puppy justice. I hope this story continues to be followed. This disgusting piece of crap needs to be used as an example of what will happen to you when you hurt a puppy so badly. I hope a prisoner gets to him the same way he killed his dog!!!!!

    What is wrong with the judge down there!!! Even if the dog did bite him did the dog deserve to be killed in such a horrible way. This pos is evil canr the judge see that! something needs to be done about the whole situation. I hope a group of animal rights will take up the cause down there and put pressure on the judge to hand him down the maximum sentence and throw his ass in jail. The mesaage needs to be sent that there is zeo tolerance for animal abuse. This was clearly abuse not the pos defending himself

    Travis Archer – You are in jail with NO bond – so your punk white ass will be a real treat for all predatory inmates and I hope you get the just punishment you so well deserve, raped daily and by many, intimidated, beat up, treated like the hunk of pond scum you are – Ponce was an innocent puppy that you, the friggin’ coward that you are, murdered him. May you get shanked and left on a cold concrete floor to bleed out – AND NO ONE CARES!

    DirtBag walks RORed after beating his daughters pet (they were not home thank god). Continuously beating this animal for 20 to 25 minutes straight. Almost no break in the beating and was still doing so when cops arrived. The Cries from that animal are embedded in my memory forever and you have to be a sick SOB to be able to continue beating an animal while hearing that cry. Same sound came from same house few days prior but not very long by comparison. hope this coward becomes a dog in another life and may his master be a sadist that lives in BFE where his daily crys are never heard.

    Animal abuse is a disgusting crime. Child abuse and elder abuse are also disgusting crimes. It is against everything we learn as children and as we grow up…..abuse of an animal, especially a pet animal who has been raised with an innate trust of humans, is a horrible crime. The terrible person who killed his 9 month old Labrador puppy doesn’t deserve anything but our scorn, hatred and disrespect. I am glad the puppy has died and is now out of the hands of Travis Archer. Living under the control of Travis Archer was hell on earth for that poor animal. There is a special place in hell for people who abuse animals, children or any other human being.

    Well, even if the dog bit him it was most likely a fear bite, a defensive bite, since this POS was trying to kill him. I wonder what his wife and daughters think of him now? There’s a pic on his FB page with his daughters playing with this lovely dog. This would be a reason to divorce somebody and cut off parental rights. This kind of violence doesn’t just come out of the blue, he’s been doing this for years to animals and/ or people. Wonder if CPS is looking at him. There still seems to be no resolution to this case, the judge threw out some of the evidence, so does that mean the necropsy gets thrown out?

    It always amazes me that in the entire city or county where this PRICK lives he is still our and about. Not one person willing to send this POS a Street Message!! He should not be walking, where he needs to be is 10ft under with the maggots!!!

      I’m sure there are plenty of people that would like to dish out some street justice, but then THEY would be sitting in jail for doing something to this worthless piece of humanity!. He can get away with killing his dog, but anyone do something to this POS and you will pay! I agree, he needs to be 10ft under the maggots, but I don’t think it’s worth someone ruining their life over him. Hopefully karma will catch up with some justice but I won’t hold my breath!
