In Boynton Beach, Florida, an investigation is currently underway after a video showed a man punching a dog at Intracoastal Park on Sunday morning. The leashed dog named Adi, (short for Addison) had been walking with a man when the man stopped, punched the dog with his fist twice and then slapped the defenseless pooch again.
The dog has been seized ! Thank god. She is at pbc acc and because there is now an investigation , no details can be released any further. Once we have details , we will update here. **Addison CAN be returned to her owner pending outcome of investigation. Let’s hope she isn’t and we hope justice is served. #JusticeforAddisonLate evening update : The director of PBC ACC responded to us about an hour ago , when she could have waited until tomorrow and said her team will be talking to the states attorney about this. Thank you Diane! Update : Dog is not being removed. Officer on the case said it’s not a felony to punch a dog. Hopefully through education , that changes. While Florida laws suck , Ponces Law is in effect here. ⚠️Disturbing Video⚠️This happened this morning in BOYNTON BEACH , Fl. ( Palm Beach County ) We have personally spoke to the animal cruelty unit at BBPD to tell them WE WILL TAKE THIS BABY. They are opening an investigation but not sure anything can be done. License plate # BMI B50. TIME TO BE HEARD. This has got to stop. We did not record this ••No bashing the person recording ! They have evidence & a tag # thankfully

“I will do my absolute best to pursue justice for this innocent animal,” said Roehrich, who has served as the department’s animal cruelty investigator for 28 years. “We will always investigate acts of animal abuse and neglect in the city.”
