High school student allegedly beat stray dog to death with a broom

A high school student is facing a charge of aggravated cruelty to animals for allegedly beating a stray dog to death with a broom. According to the Ledger-Enquirer, 17-year-old Renardo Welch, a student at Hardaway High School, attacked the dog on September 25 at the  Club Hill Apartments in Columbus, Georgia.

The suspect’s explanation

Welch described what happened to the Columbus Police – according to the news agency, Welch told the authorities that he tried to get the dog to leave the porch, before inviting the stray into an apartment. After letting the dog in, he tried to get the dog out and resorted to using a broom to repeatedly hit the dog in the head. The dog’s body was discovered in the woods near the apartment complex.

The charge

Welch’s alleged act of cruelty has resulted in one count of aggravated cruelty to animals – to which he has pleaded not guilty.

There are no indications that the stray dog ever posed any threat to the teen.

    That’s animal abuse of the lowest and worst kind – invite the poor unsuspecting and needy animal into his home and then beat him to death. This poor dog would no doubt have believed he was going to be fed and treated kindly (goodness knows why when he’s an experienced stray) but no, this miserable excuse for a human did what far too many dogs experience too often – abused the life out of him, literally. This moron’s high school name should be applied and he should be put “hard away” for a long time in solitary sans food and water plus daily psychiatric treatment for he duration. I wonder how he thought he could in one minute explain what happened and the next minute plead not guilty?

    This big thug needs a bat used on his head several times and continued until he is in the same state as he left this poor stray dog. Look at that face-lying about what happened as though the police believe him. Another waste of life to add to our growing list of worthless humans.

    Future serial killer ! He deserves the death penalty in the same manner he brutally killed an innocent dog. So sick of these thugs torturing and killing animals.

    If he felt the dog was a problem, why didn’t he just call animal control. It appears he just wanted to kill something and the poor dog happened to be there. Rest in peace poor dog, I hope there will be some justice in this, but highly doubt it. This POS will undoubtedly get away with this with a slap on the wrist. Who know who or what will be his next victim. b

    Let me get this straight.

    He wanted to remove the dog from a porch, so he invited him into an apartment.

    THEN he tried to remove the dog from the apartment, and when that didn’t work, he decided to kill him with a broom.

    THAT’S the story this murderous thug is going with????

    Anyone who believes that one is on crack!!!

    He invited the dog inside that apartment ONLY to kill him and for no other reason. Asking him inside to remove him from anywhere makes sense only if you’re trying to come up with an excuse for the inexcusable.

    POS needs to be charged with everything they can charge him with, and put him away for as long as they can.
