Punish Man Accused of Beating Puppy With Baseball Bat for Pooping in Crate

Target: Jim Plowman, Commonwealth’s Attorney for Loudoun County, Virginia

Goal: Demand that the man accused of beating his puppy with a baseball bat receive the maximum penalty under law.

A puppy named Buddy suffered when the poor animal was allegedly beaten with a baseball bat for defecating in his crate. The dog miraculously survived, but is facing a long road to recovery and could easily have died. The accused has been charged with animal abuse, but is out on bail, and is only facing up to one year in jail and up to a $1,000 fine. We demand justice for Buddy.

Loudoun County Animal Services investigated Kevin R. Graves’ property after they received a report of suspected animal cruelty. There, they found a dog that had allegedly sustained a severe beating at the hands of Graves with a baseball bat. Luckily, the poor dog survived the beating.

Loudoun County Animal Services took custody of the dog, and the injured animal will be available to foster upon recovery. Graves was charged with animal cruelty, a class I misdemeanor, and is facing at the most a $1,000 fine or one year in jail. Sign below and demand justice for Buddy.


Dear District Attorney Plowman,

A dog was allegedly beaten with a baseball bat in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The dog miraculously survived, but could have been seriously injured or killed. We demand justice for this innocent dog.

Loudoun County Animal Services rescued a dog from Kevin R. Graves’ property after the poor animal was reportedly severely beaten. Graves allegedly beat the dog with a baseball bat for defecating in his crate. Fortunately, the dog survived and will remain in the custody of Loudoun County Animal Services until the poor animal is ready to be fostered. Graves was charged with animal cruelty and could face up to a year in jail or a $1,000 fine.

This case must be vigorously pursued and prosecuted.

    Hope he do’s get jail time animal abusers dont go down very well hopefully he will be taught a lesson.

  3. WHYYY on God’s green earth do these scumbags get pets when they are incapable of any kindness ? Nevermind, they’re just stupid. They don’t think with normal, rational, considerate minds. Dogs (& cats) have accidnets. If you don’t know this, perhaps stay the hell away from owning a pet.
    Please let us animal lovers line up to beat his ass with a bat. I’m tired of this vermin. And I’m sure I’m not alone on that.


  5. Start making an example of these pieces of shit! Huge fines and lots of jail time! This is unacceptable behavior period! God people are horrible!

    • I agree with you Linda. Until the perpetrators are made to suffer themselves with prison time etc, it will continue.
      What can be going on in these peoples heads to want to maim an innocent pet like this. Maybe if the creep had let the dog out to go to the toilet it would not have happened. Graves fault entirely.
