Dog Reportedly Beaten at Gas Station Deserves Justice

Target: Amira D. Fox, Lee County, FL State Attorney

Goal: Seek maximum penalty against man who allegedly attacked dog at gas station.

A bystander recorded an act of apparent animal cruelty that took place in full public view. The video seemingly captures a man pummeling a dog in his car. The man was parked at a gas station in Fort Myers, Florida when the video shows him opening the back door, reaching across the backseat, and seemingly repeatedly striking the animal. He then slams the door and presumably drives away.

The disturbing video only became known to authorities after it was distributed in a Facebook group. Residents are understandably outraged, and the police are seeking more information from the public. Neither the identity of the man in the video nor the identity of the specific gas station where this act allegedly took place are known. More worrisome still is the fate of the dog.

Sign the petition below to demand prosecutors seek full charges when a suspect is apprehended.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Fox,

A video originating in Fort Myers recently went viral for all the wrong reasons.  The video in the spotlight seemingly depicts a blatant act of animal cruelty. Worse yet, this suspect apparently felt emboldened enough to aggressively punch his own dog multiple times in broad daylight where anyone could and seemingly did see him.

The brutality shown in this snapshot could very well be a reflection of someone capable of even more violent behavior. This individual must answer for his actions, and any vulnerable living beings under his brand of “care” must be protected. When he is apprehended, please have charges that demonstrate the gravity of this alleged crime ready and waiting.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    He’s been ID’ed. They should release his name soon. Hope they throw the book at him and find an actual human to adopt the dog. https://nbc-2.com/news/crime/2022/04/08/video-man-wanted-for-beating-dog-at-fort-myers-gas-station/

      Thank you for this update. I pray the dog is not released to him and that he is never allowed another pet of any kind.

    • Kristine Kelch says:

      Thank you for sharing this! I’m happy the article said the dog is in good health and has been taken from this piece of human garbage.

    • Melinda+Maddox says:

      There is more than one reason I carry pepper spray and a Billy club in my vehicle. THIS INCIDENT WOULD BE ONE OF THEM!

      • Gail M Greenlee says:

        Oh yes my type of good friend. You are awesome. Agreed all the way. I risk myself going off on big men when I see this and then report it too. God bless these sweet animals. Have a nice weekend.

  4. This EVIL bastard should be locked up and banned FOR LIFE from ever keeping another animal. All animal abusers and murderers need removing from society forever, period! The law is usually pitiful and merely slaps their wrists. How are animals ever going to be properly protected when there are no punishments or deterrents to stop these psychos? Lawmakers need to get real and start doing their jobs – real JUSTICE for animals!!

  5. Adrienne+Kaiser says:

    If we don’t advocate for abused animals, they will continue to suffer and possibly lose their life. Please pursue this abuser and punish him to the fullest extent of the law. Animals do not deserve to be treated cruelly. They are so loyal to their owner. It’s is the owners fault for not training their animal in an acceptable, non violent manner. Please go after this violent individual!! Be the animals voice so it doesn’t happen again.

  6. Evan Jane Kriss says:

    Use the video and gas station surveillance cameras to find this monster. Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law for egregious animal abuse and cruelty. Remove the dog and any other animals in his possession immediately. Make him PAY ALL VET BILLS to get the dog checked and to restore it to good health. BAN him from ever purchasing, owning, caring for, living with or working with any animals ever again.

  7. If I saw a brainless coward like that committing this crime of animal abuse, I would make a citizen’s arrest, & hold him by any/all legal means until the authorities arrived.
    The laws against animal abuse need to be improved to provide harsher punishments for the POS’s that break those laws. When a human is abused, they hold nothing back on punishment.

  8. I read he has been identified. Thank you the person who took the video but if anyone really wants to help out, take pictures of not only the act but the face and the car and a plate. Do not leave any loophole for these people to squeeze out of because laws and judges are weak.

    • He was identified and found and his dog is receiving treatment and proper care. He will be arrested and charged with animal cruelty and hope never allowed to have or be near another animal again.

  9. Devon+Benton says:

    We must stop just filming abuses & actually do something about it. There’s no way I would stand by filming while I see someone abusing an animal. No way. Take my ass to jail because this guy is going down. Praying for justice & safety for this dog

  10. SOMEONE NEEDS TO BEAT THIS CRUEL ABUSIVE ASSHOLE REPEATEDLY THEN SLAM HIS PRISON CELL DOOR CLOSED PERMANENTLY!!!!

  11. Luckily they have identified the POS….

    https://nbc-2.com/news/crime/2022/04/08/video-man-wanted-for-beating-dog-at-fort-myers-gas-station/amp/

    Hopefully they will prosecute and more importantly take the animal from him, place it in foster care and BAN HIM FOR LIFE FROM EVER HAVING ANY ANIMAL AGAIN.

  12. He has been ID’d.
    Thank you to the community that brought attention to this scum of the earth and saved this dog from future abuse!! Hoping the law strips this helpless dog from his home.
    May this bully abuser – never own, care for, live with ANY animal for the rest of his miserable existence.
    Scum of the earth!

  13. PULL UP THE SURVEILLANCE VIDEO, TRACK THE MOTHERFUCKER DOWN, IMMEDIATELY REMOVE THE TORTURED/ABUSED DOG FROM THIS COCKSUCKING BULLY’S CUSTODY, PUNISH THE FUCKING ANIMAL ABUSER TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW/INCARCERATE HIM, AND PRAY THAT SOME BIG BOBO BEATS THE SHIT OUT OF THIS PUNK’S ASS WHILE HE’S IN JAIL!!! 💪🇺🇸RENEE CARIGLIA

  14. Dump his sorry ass in the Everglades to be croc food.

  15. Catherine Emerson says:

    Filthy POS needs to be caught and dealt with. It should be very easy to find out what slimy rock the shitbag is hiding under. The gas station should have the reg no on video. Poor dog, it must live a life of sheer hel.

  16. Jacqueline A says:

    Pummel this idiot. He should never own an animal again! Put him in prison so that animal lovers can repeat the actions he did to this poor dog over and over again.

  17. Tanya Field says:

    Justice for the poor dog!

  18. This poor dog needs help
    Find this asshole now!!!

  19. Why didn’t the person get the license plate number instead of just standing there recording it? This SOB deserves to have the same treatment. Jail is too good for an animal abuser.

  20. He is a domestic abuser. Arrest him
