Man Reportedly Seen on Video Viciously Beating Dog With Broomstick Must be Punished

Target: Steve Marshall, Attorney General of Alabama

Goal: Charge alleged animal abuser with felony cruelty instead of a misdemeanor.

Several months ago, an innocent dog was discovered horribly beaten via security footage of his Alabama home, the alleged abuser being the boyfriend of the family’s daughter. The Raymer family called the police and the man was arrested, but only on misdemeanor charges as it “could not be proven” that Echo the dog’s condition was related to the attack. However, a veterinary examination appeared to suggest otherwise.

Animal abuse is a felony in Alabama. The fact that the accused attacker is being charged with mere misdemeanors for something so horrific is completely unacceptable. The video footage reportedly appears to show the man striking the poor animal with a broomstick, among other atrocities. Frankly, it is a wonder Echo survived such apparent cruelty; the veterinary records detail wounds that could easily kill a dog instantly, if not over a period of suffering-filled days or even weeks.

The man is due in court soon, and he must face felony charges. Sign this petition to ensure that he is punished to the full extent of the law, if found guilty.


Dear Attorney General Marshall,

An alleged animal abuser was charged with misdemeanor crimes for his reported abuse of an innocent dog. Video footage of the home of his girlfriend’s family seemingly shows him viciously beating their dog, Echo, who somehow managed to survive a multitude of painful injuries inflicted upon him. Alabama law clearly states that animal abuse is a felony.

This is beyond unacceptable. the man’s alleged beating of this poor dog could have killed him, and he must face justice for what he has done. He is due in court soon, and you must ensure that he is properly punished for his alleged cruel behavior towards an innocent animal.

  1. Animal abusers internationally must have the mandatory death penalty implemented.I am ready,willing and able to help perform this procedure.

  2. Why not use a broomstick to beat him to a pulp? Sounds
    like justice to me

  3. Charge him and send him to jail. If justice is served he’ll be severely beaten

  4. Julie Bates says:

    Beat the fucker the same way….but NOOOOOO the laws are soooo weak when it comes to animal rights….nothing will be done watch and see….Alabama law is weak !!!

  5. Their weaknesses are the reasons that the voiceless innocents have little, if any justice. You can contact the District Court in Robertsdale, AL to say that a crime deserves a criminal/felony charge. Seems that the reviews for the police department there has a 3.0 rating. Wonder why and if they care.

  6. Madeleine Bachmann says:

    I wrote to the DA to have a more severe sentence handed down for the man who beat this sweet dachsund almost to death, leaving large areas of his body with no fur and causing him to lose an eye. I rad further into this and was appalled that this was not the first time this man beat this dog.l I am wondering now if the dog should not be rehomed? Surely he cannot see well enough to stay away from this abuse and I am really concerned.

  7. This man needs locked up for many years . This is un called for . This innocent dog did nothing to deserve this . This man is a threat to society and animals .
