Update on video showing dog beaten in Hillsborough convenience store

A dog has been removed from his owner’s home after the Hillsboro Police Department received a call that the animal was being beaten and crying out in fright and pain. According to KoinNews,  police were able to identify the suspect and the dog from a video. The dog, named Darnell, was taken to a local veterinarian Tuesday to be examined.

A Hillsboro, Oregon woman videoed the disturbing animal cruelty situation on Monday at a Shell gas station convenience store located on SE Baseline and Third Street. As the woman stepped off the bus to purchase a beverage, she noticed a man enter the store with his dog. Determined to help the dog being abused, the woman immediately called authorities as well as the Oregon Humane Society. Recording the man’s cruel actions towards his dog would help provide the proof she needed:

“This guy comes in with his pup. His presence wasn’t easily ignored, and he walks in angrily yanking his dog up off the ground by the dog’s leash,” states Sunshine Alexandria on her Facebook page after sharing the video on social media. “The poor dog is so scared of being hit by this piece of human garbage again, so he doesn’t want to walk; he just lays down in submission.”

Alexandria describes the man’s anger and his frustration that his dog was so terrified and just cowered in utter submission, the man then proceeds to scream at the dog.

“…SCREAMING in the animal’s face and kicking it in the ribs, punching him, etc. while the dog just cries and lays there. What I was able to record was the last bit of the abuse and nothing compared to what I witnessed off camera,” Alexandria added.

On Tuesday, the dog, named Darnell was placed into protective custody until the case is resolved. He is currently at a local veterinarian hospital undergoing a complete physical examination.

The dog’s owner has not been publicly announced at this time.

    Il n’y a aucune excuse pour que ce monstre ne soit pas condamnée à la prison à perpétuité. Pas de pitié pour les barbares.

    Glad the pup has been taken away from that male SOS. But … I still have to wonder WHY a person who is recording an abusive situation doesn’t intervene????? Yes I know the possibility of the SOS getting meaner, but … there has to be a way to follow “it”, get more info, block it’s vehicle and call 9-1-1. I’ve done it several times.

    Now if they will only dole out a punishment worthy of this POS’s crime! I can’t understand why someone even wants a dog if this is how they must treat them. The worst part is this monster probably abuses everything he comes in contact with.

    This bastard animal abuser needs to have his name published so payback can be enacted.
    No update has been made on the dogs status.Nothing states where he is located currently.For all we know this poor dog may have been returned to this POS abusive owner.

    The owner’s name is Bill Stoneman – he has a facebook page where you can see it is the same dog – this bastard needs a severe case of street justice dealt to him. In yesterday’s Pet Rescue Report someone gave his information so I looked it up and, yep, its the same dog – DO NOT GIVE THIS POOR DOG BACK TO THIS MAGGOT.

    I hope they blast his name in the paper and on the news to shame this asshole, that is IF he is even capable of feeling shame/embarrassment. Seems sociopathic tho, the way he publicly beat the submissive dog. What a cowardly piece of crap.
