A jury has an Independence, Iowa, man guilty of animal torture for his abuse of a two-year-old pit bull mix named Daisy. As reported by KWWL News, 42-year-old Jason O’Neil Johnson could face two years behind bars for the an Aggravated Misdemeanor charge stemming from the May 2019 incident.
Johnson attacked the family dog with a belt and his fists because she had chewed a pair of sunglasses. There was video evidence of the brutal beating because he made his son record a portion of it to show to his other children. As reported by the Courier, the video shows Johnson hitting Daisy at least 15 times in eight seconds.
The dog was seized from Johnson’s home and taken to a veterinarian for an exam and treatment.
Johnson will be sentenced at a later date.
