In Warren, Ohio, a man was arrested on Saturday afternoon on separate charges although police are investigating the suspect’s connection to a viral dog skinning video released on social media just days ago. Warren police were overwhelmed with messages and information concerning the man seen on the video skinning a dog.

Scott Anthony Winter, 46, has been identified as the man alleged in the video shown standing over a dog hanging from a rope with a bucket underneath it to catch the blood as the man skinned the dog. Winter lives in Stark County on Palmyra Road.

According to WkbnNews, Warren Police Department Detective Michael Altiere stated the incident happened months ago, although the video of the horrific act was only released on social media last weekend. The son, who owned the dog, wanted everyone to know what his dad and his girlfriend had supposedly done to his pet. It is not known if the pit bull was dead or alive when skinned. Winter had a warrant out for failing to appear for supervised community service in 2016 for an animal cruelty offense and was subsequently arrested.

The investigation continues. Winter is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday morning.

    Just prosecute this pond scum on every charge you can, make some up! Whatever it takes to put him away for a long time! Wonder why the son didn’t speak up sooner if he knew what had been done to his dog?

    So this scum has prior history of animal abuse and he continues to do this and now this happens? This cretin needs to be locked away before he does something to a human. Put him in jail and let the dog lovers after him. Sentence will be swift.

    I said to emasculate this total Bastard: but it didn’t get in for some reason::: I didn’t even say to “skin him alive” which would actually be fitting as this already Less than a Man even with his manhood intact : would do such an evil , torturous , horrific, deed, to get EVEN with his son for some reason… hopefully the cell mates will decide to Poke this Little Pecker’s Eyes out!!! While he is alive of course..

    Scott Anthony Winter and his dirtbag girlfriend should both hogtied, gagged and dumped in nearest trash compactor – let them feel the pain and terror they put an innocent animal through – two wastes of space who have proven they are not fit to breathe.
