Man arrested for beating elderly dog to death

Florida man accused of beating 16-year-old dog to death

A Florida man is accused of a violent act of cruelty which left a 16-year-old dog dead in his own yard. As reported by Click Orlando, the Port Orange Police Department, the owner of the elderly rat terrier, named Buddy Boy, contacted them on Thursday morning after finding the senior dog dead in the yard.

Injuries on the dog indicated that he had not died from natural causes and the owner believes that the dog was killed during the night. An investigation led the authorities to 58-year-old Brian Batson in Holly Hill – the man was arrested for aggravated animal cruelty on Thursday afternoon.

No reason for the killing was provided. Buddy Boy’s body was taken to the Halifax Humane Society for a necropsy.

    Rat terriers are small dogs. WHY was Buddy Boy left outside in the first place?
    Just can’t fix stupid, but the animal pays with their life……..

    So sorry Buddy Boy that you were failed by your humans who should have protected you….. I know that you are absolutely in Heaven. Please look for MacKitty and join his wonderful snuggle buddies group and RIP amongst loving friends.

    As for the POS who stole your life in such a cruel and violent manner, he has a reserved spot in Hell waiting for him. He will burn forever for his cruelty. He can’t get to Hell fast enough!!!
