Accused animal cruelty suspect arrested this week

This week, a Florida man was arrested for allegedly drowning a caged dog. According to News 4 Jax, 38-year-old David Austin, of Jacksonville, was arrested Wednesday on a felony animal cruelty charge; he was booked into the Clay County Jail.

Details of the drowning

Details of the cruelty crime are truly disturbing. In November 2017, a female pit bull was found submerged in a kennel in Orange Park Creek. A concrete block had been placed inside of the kennel to weigh it down. The deceased dog was sent to a veterinarian for a necropsy which revealed that she died of suffocation – likely from drowning. There were no other injuries found on the dog.

The cruelty investigation

Investigators were led to the dog’s former owners after finding an identification number for a student at Jefferson Davis Middle School in the kennel. The mother of the student confirmed that they had owned a pit bull, but got rid of her after the dog allegedly bit a family member. The relationship between the accused dog killer, and the student’s mother, is unclear.

    I might have known. Typical dogfighting thug, hood rat. Oh, let’s put him in a cage, handcuffed, feet shackled and submerge him slowly in the Antarctic Ocean.

      Hope you saved that for evidence and send it to the DA and prosecution team. Really wish he could be in a locked cage dropped in freezing water !

    Put this thug in a caged box and weigh it down so he feels the emotions that were running through this dogs head when he was submerged and couldn’t get out and drowned. No less should be done to this maggot. Could have easily left the dog on the road for animal control to pick up or take the dog to a shelter and say you found her roaming in your neighborhood. That would have been easier to do than to figure out how to commit murder of this poor dog. RIP.

    Just do the same to him as he did to the dog! I think they should make sure that the student’s mother was not involved in this murder!

    This POS should have the same done to him. Place him in a cage, bound hands and legs and submerge him. I’m not a violent person by any means however, I’d make him cry like a bitch as he was submerged into the water. As one previous writer stated, all he had to do was drop the dog off at a shelter or anywhere. No mercy on him. #RIP

    David Austin is nothing more than a ghetto skank whose cruelty deserves to be dealt with just like he did to an innocent animal. Nothing much will happen to him per the judicial system as they have proven over and over that their actions towards animal abusers is pitifully weak. So, I am hoping that he gets exactly what he deserves, a fatal encounter with an 18 wheeler – and may his useless butt be splattered all over the road – another waste of space gone.

      So disgusted with these barbarians. One commenter said that he was in the Vick fan club. Hope the prosecution uses that as evidence. Hope he gets in the general prison population with dog lovers, or White Supremacist gangs!

    The Bible didn’t have such a bad idea, an eye for an eye. Maybe there would be much less crime in this world?
