Video shows Arkansas couple beating a dog and choking a cat

In Alexander, Arkansas, a man and a woman face animal cruelty charges after authorities accused them of beating a dog and choking a cat in videos posted on social media on Sunday.

According to the Saline County Sheriff’s Office and the Bryant Police Department, after speaking with suspects Marlin Simms, 18, and Katherine Farmer, 21,  officers determined these were the two people involved in the disturbing video. Sgt. Todd Crawson, spokesperson for the Bryant Police Department, described the video as allegedly showing Simms hitting the dog with a belt and Farmer choking a cat she had wrapped in a towel.

 

Simms and Farmer have both been charged with animal cruelty. Two cats and a dog were seized from the home and are under the care of animal care.

“Great work to all the officers, deputies and animal control for stepping in and rescuing these pets from the abuse they were getting.”

    Time and time again i say the punishment should fit the crime. I’m sure there would be enough people willing to do it. Don’t leave it to the judges that just give slaps on the wrist and say don’t do that again.

    The police need to treat these animal abuse crimes as an “eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth” punishment. The same exact treatment must be done to these scums and nothing short of that must be done. What vile monsters are in this country? Our so called youth really need tons of help as many of them are heartless creatures and get pleasure from doing things like this to a dog or cat.
