The court date is fast approaching for a Florida man accused of stabbing a dog and stuffing him in a suitcase. At the end of 2017, the nation and the world were shocked and angered over the horrific torture and death of a dog named Ollie, in Broward County, Florida.
It all started on October 10, 2017 when a passerby saw a paw sticking out of a suitcase and called the Hollywood, Florida police. When the suitcase was opened, a dog was found inside with over fifty stab wounds. Ollie was rushed to a vet and survived for two days, but the injuries were too much for his poor little body to endure. He died two days later. The vet and the staff all fondly recall the dog who had endured so much, yet still wagged his tail for those who worked so hard to save him.
The Hollywood Police Department, through meticulous investigation of the suitcase, were able to lift fingerprints and find DNA leading them to Brendan Evans. Evans was arrested on November 22, 2017. Police found one of Ollie’s teeth in Evans’s wallet as well as fur in his oven, and dead animals and parts of dead animals in his apartment.
When Brendan Evans went in front of the judge for his bail hearing, the District Attorney requested a $50,000.00 bail and the judge doubled it in the hopes of keeping Evans in jail until his court date. Evans is arguing that it is within his religious rights to torture and kill animals as he practices voodoo and needs to sacrifice animals.
Evans’ next hearing will be in front of the Honorable Martin Fein on April 5th, 2018 in the 17th Judicial Circuit Court in Broward County, Florida. Please send letters and emails to Judge Fein urging him to give the maximum penalty to Brendan Evans and that what was done to Ollie cannot and will not be tolerated.
Honorable Martin Fein

Brendan Evans should be given the harshest sentence possible under Florida Law. He is a monster who should not be allowed among civilized people. He is already on probation for domestic violence. Please do not let Brendan Evans walk the streets. If you so, you are only enabling him to find and torture his next victim whether it be another animal or a human.
