A Tempe, Arizona man has been arrested and faces charges of felony animal cruelty for severely beating his  three-month-old puppy with a metal rod. A neighbor reported hearing sounds resembling an animal in distress since November, but couldn’t pinpoint the location until this week when she located which apartment a puppy was howling in distress.tempe-man

According to Channel12News, police arrested Shundong Hu, 21, on Wednesday. The woman told police she witnessed Hu striking the Golden retriever puppy repeatedly with a metal rod while it remained in a metal cage. The pup suffered severe injuries including multiple skull and cheek fractures, lacerations, a broken tooth, wounds to his head and nose and swelling of both eyes.

When police searched Hu’s apartment on Wednesday, they also found two cats – both had appeared to have been abused also. The cats were removed from the apartment and are currently being cared for with the puppy at the Arizona Humane Society.tempe-man-3

    Please just kill these barbarians. Because they don’t deserve to live. Animals also have feelings. They deserve to TLC MORE than some people.

    Too bad he can’t be put in a metal cage and beat with a metal pipe. That poor puppy and cats now they will find a better forever home.

    I continually ask myself why someone that does this to their pet even have pets? Do they get off on hurting innocent animals? This POS belongs in jail, away from society! He will do this to little innocent pets, he will do this to humans!

    Ça ne mérite pas de respirer le même air que ses pauvres bébés, il faut tuer tous ses parasites, ses barbares, consanguins, assassins. Je ne peux ressentir que de la haine pour ses sous merde, ses ordures. Que l’on me le laisser 5 minutes, je lui ferais regretter d’être né. Pourriture. Rien que pour venger ses innocents je me ferais impitoyable, pas de pitié.

    We need to find where he works and lives to warn neighbors. I believe he will abduct other animals or even small children. If anyone can find him please contact me on facebook.

    I wish I could get my hands on this POS I would get that rod stuff it right where the sun don’t shine and beat the bastard to death. Mercy and begging would not be an option the low life piece of scum. All abusers are tough until they come face to face with real people.

      If only i could be there as well if you got your hands on this sewer scum. He was looking to cook them to eat. South Korean or Chinese? Wouldn’t mind cooking him.

    I hope they send the POS to prison where the inmates will give him the “special” treatment reserved for child and animal abusers. Then he can rot in hell.
