Punish Man Caught on Video Severely Beating Puppy

Target: Westchester County District Attorney Miriam E. Rocah
Goal: Seek maximum punishment for man accused of beating puppy and throwing him into gate.

The violent attack on a 9-month-old puppy was so severe that bystanders began filming. A man, apparently identified as 29-year-old Anthoin McPherson, is seen violently hitting the puppy and then lifting him up and throwing the puppy into a metal gate.

After the video was provided to authorities, McPherson was arrested and the puppy, named Maximus, was accepted by the Yonkers Animal Shelter. Rescuers reported that Maximus healed quickly, and enjoyed treats and belly rubs during his recovery.

The alleged attacker, McPherson, is facing criminal charges, but as is often the case, there are concerns that he will be given just a slap on the wrist.

As for Maximus, he was quickly adoped by a forever family. “If you look at that video and it doesn’t turn your stomach then you’re not human,” adopter Ricky Vetrano said. Fortunately for Maximus, he is now safe from his attacker.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Rocah,

The violent attack on a 9-month-old puppy was so severe that bystanders began filming. A man, apparently identified as 29-year-old Anthoin McPherson, is seen violently hitting the puppy and then lifting him up and throwing the puppy into a metal gate.

After the video was provided to authorities, McPherson was arrested and the puppy, named Maximus, was accepted by the Yonkers Animal Shelter. Rescuers reported that Maximus healed quickly, and enjoyed treats and belly rubs during his recovery.

The alleged attacker, McPherson, is facing criminal charges, but as is often the case, there are concerns that he will be given just a slap on the wrist.

We are writing you to ask that you ensure justice is served in this case. Don’t let the accused get off with a slap on the wrist if he is found guilty. Please seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,
[Your Name Here]

  11. Flat out loser, wish I could meet him and do the same to him,coward

  12. Sherry Abela says:

    If he is convicted he should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Animal abuse and neglect is inexcusable. Crimes against animals have gotten out of control because so many of the perpetrators are given a slap on the wrist only then to turn around and do it again. Please give this man a just punishment and be a voice for the innocent animals that have none.

  13. It’s equally sickening that people stopped and ‘filmed”! They filmed instead of doing something to help the pup. Wow. A person should film to get evidence, but my goodness, to just stand there and watch. Sick.

    • I carry pepper spray at all times and a self defense knife so I can take action if I see something happening. I really wish people would carry things on them to take action rather than just a phone to record, while it will at least work as evidence. We can always count on someone to video record (as we know full well) but don’t really ever have anyone to also act.

  14. Mari Mennel-Bell says:

    Please give this man the maximum sentence – for a terrible animal abuse felony!

  15. When will the justice system realize that we are fed up of reading about animal abusers. Judges need to start handing out the maximum that they can. The whole system sucks.

  16. Joseph Kenosky says:

    Euthanize the offender.

  17. DEMENTED SADISTIC MONSTER NEEDS THE DEATH PENALTY!! THE PERSON FILMING SHOULD RECEIVE AS WELL JUST FILMING AND NOT HELPING THIS POOR LITTLE PUPPY. WHAT A BASTARD!!

  18. Bystanders? Everyone loves to video, but no one helped the puppy!!

  19. John Sammon says:

    I would love to get my hands on the dude and beat his ass

  20. Bystanders?? Everyone loves to video, but no one bothered to help the puppy!! That moron needed dragged to the ground….
