A camera was rolling when a man was caught beating a dog in East Sussex. According to the Daily Mail, 63-year-old Laurence Skelson’s cruel treatment to his friend’s bulldog, Boston, has resulted in him being banned for life from owning dogs.

Skelson’s despicable behavior was captured by a horrified neighbor – video evidence showed the man intimidating the bulldog with a mop and a wooden board. The dog never retaliates against the man, and can be seen trying to get away, or rolling over in a submissive fashion in response to the abuse.

Thankfully, Boston did not suffer any long-term injury from the cruel incident.

    This old fuck needs a major beat down – prohibiting him from own a dog for life is a joke – he can get a dog from any private party and who is going to know. His picture should be posted in every shelter, rescue and veterinarian’s office so they KNOW he is banned from dog ownership. A major fatal heart attack for Laurence Skelson is hopefully in the very near future.

    I’ve got a 2×4 that I’ll glad use on this POS. So he’s banned from owning dogs….he didn’t own the dog that he abused (the poor pup belonged to a friend) so what’s to keep him from doing it again to someone’s dog??? I hope the friend told him to take a flying f*** and never contact him/her again.

    This man needs to have the same done to him and then thrown in jail with all the dog lovers. He will definitely not like the time with those guys. Not even his own dog. What a scum.

    Banned from owning?? THIS WAS NOT HIS DOG!!!!!! He should be in jail and fined and can not be in the same home as a companion pet!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Does he even own one? This was not his dog he was abusing. Next question….where is the idiot owner of this dog? I know my dog well enough I would be able to tell in 2 seconds if someone that was in my home had hurt or abused my pet….I would be able to sense that by my pets reaction to the visitor!

    I watched the video and it appears that this sadistic monster is doing it JUST TO BE HATEFUL. It’s absolutely maddening to see someone with complex thinking skills doing something SO barbaric. One comes to expect it in the wild with other animals trying to survive with what’s available, but these vile attacks never ceases to baffle and enrage me. The big question that I think all compassionate persons have is…WHY?!?

    That is just an abusive bully who is so juvenile he has to take his immature frustration about his miserable life on an innocent dog who did nothing. Oh my gosh! what did the “friend” do? I couldn’t stand still for the law to do it’s thing…….
    I think this may be his facebook page. He lives in Bexhill but it doesn’t give me an age. We need to send our messages, but no threats otherwise facebook will close our accounts. can anyone tell if this is his?
