Man convicted for killing girlfriend's puppy

Man who beat girlfriend’s puppy to death convicted of animal cruelty

A Florida man has been convicted of aggravated animal cruelty for beating his girlfriend’s puppy to death. According to ABC Action News, 29-year-old Jeffrey Hall, of Bradenton, was convicted on August 24.

The crime

Hall fatally beat his girlfriend’s 10-month-old puppy, Toby, in October after the pup bit him on the finger. After the puppy died, the body was taken to a veterinary hospital and a necropsy revealed injuries consistent with a severe beating, including “being beat with a fist, kicked or stomped and hit with an unknown object.”

The trauma from the beating was so severe that Toby’s lung had also collapsed and his liver ruptured.

The admission

Following the findings in the necrospy, the Bradenton police interviewed Hall and he admitted to beating the puppy. Hall’s sentencing will take place in mid-October – he could face up to a year behind bars. The prosecutor for the case stated:

“The defendant was relentless in his horrific abuse of this dog. The state is committed to protecting vulnerable animals.”

    Please keep this useless POS in jail forever and lose the keys!!!!!!! He should only leave prison in a pine box……..
    His family or an innocent, unrelated person could be his next “punching bag” Absolutely disgusting how this useless POS reacted to that precious puppy…….. What would he do to an incontinent senior with dementia or a toddler with a soiled diaper………

    OMG: I am absolutely sick over this poor precious treasure being murdered…..
    Precious Toby, your life mattered and you deserve justice!!! RIP precious treasure……. Your life was stolen from you….. You didn’t deserve to be tortured and murdered…… You should have grown older (loved and been loved) and continued to be a beloved family member……. please look for MacKitty in Heaven….. you will be welcome to join his group of snuggle buddies…….. so sorry that you were failed so horribly by humans……..

    The POS who murdered this precious treasure will burn in Hell forever for his cruelty…… here’s hoping that he gets there ASAP (after dying a horrible death alone, afraid, in agony & (worst of all) unloved)……

    THIS “worthless ” excuse of a human Needs a Vacation NOW!!! He should be awarded a “ONE WAY trip to the Beautiful Everglades!!!!” Golly with the humidity so high and hot in Florida he shouldn’t need clothing and to keep him for sunburn and his Skin Soft and Tanned … a gallon of “Sweet Clover Honey” should be liberally applied to his Naked Torso . Just let him off and inform him someone will return for him a 72 hour period of time…. Then send hearse to Pick Up the morsels left from the Gator’s and Wild Boar’s … SPIT OUT!!!

    The max 1 year is so NOT ENOUGH. This man needs a work crew and put in a prison that dishes out justice. Let Jeffrey Hall feel what pain feels like. Let him think of the puppy and the pain he caused that poor innocent.

    I sure as hell hope the District Attorney is persistent as hell in pursuing the maximum possible jail time for this POS oxygen waster.

    That thing doesn’t qualify as a man. It doesn’t qualify as a human being; it hasn’t been walking upright long enough to qualify as anything other than a savage maggot piece of shit.

    One year in jail for this vile scum is not long enough. He should be there longer so “Bubba” and his friends can take care of him for us.Hope he never gets out in one piece.

    Put this useless, vile excuse of a human in a cell with an animal lover and tell them what he did….. let the rest of his punishment be handled appropriately!! Hopefully he will be beat to a bloody pulp….but not fatally. Just so he will remember what he did to that poor puppy.

    “The defendant was relentless in his horrific abuse of this dog. The state is committed to protecting vulnerable animals.”? If this is the case a harsher sentence than “he could face up to a year in jail” should be imposed! Some commitment “Florida”!
