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.

    Animal abuse is a felony for a reason. If the lawyers and judges enforce the law, like they are supposed to, there wouldn’t be so many habitual criminals out here.

    ADAM CALLAGHAN deserves, and must, be punished severely for attacking poor Echo – for God’s sake, Echo wasn’t even HIS DOG!!! BIG RED FLAG: the girlfriend better find herself a new boyfriend, because he just showed her WHO HE REALLY IS, & it is NOT ACCEPTABLE!

    P.S. – NO ONE would treat any animal of mine like that, & get away with it!!!!!!!


  4. I want tolerance animal abuse .I love my dog and would kill a Mf if someone ever hurt her.Their innocent and helpless.Mans best friend I hope he gos to prison for a long time!!

  5. This is so sad. No animal deserves to be beaten. This man should get lots of time in prison for this. Someone should beat this piece of shit and see how he likes it. Please get rid of this guy for a very long time. Teach him a lesson. He is a stupid asshole. He deserves jail/prison time.

    Lock him up throw away key

  7. Tamela Bare says:

    Put him in a room and pass me that broom. Two whacks for every one he gave Echo. It’s time to take the garbage out and he is the biggest piece of shit that needs to be wiped up and thrown in jail. He’s too dangerous to be among us. As for his girlfriend, honey you can better, a lot better.

    • I’m with Tamela – give me a broom and I’ll wrap some barbed wire around it with some chains as well. I don’t want to beat him to death – just very close to it. And then, I want to pour boxes of salt on his gaping wounds and let him beg for mercy, which will NEVER come. He should just rot where ever he lies down.

  8. Beat this mother fucker till he dies!!!!

  9. Make this SOB pay for all medical bills for Echo, then BEAT him with a baseball bat.
    Hopefully he is no longer a boyfriend.

  10. Mary Ann Oostdyk says:

    Beat THIS bastard, to death!

  11. It will be kids and partner next if he is not charged with felony.

  12. Karen Tipping says:

    I’ll beat him with a broomstick to within an inch of his lousy life, see how he likes it. Bastard.

    Animal abusers should get a taste of the cruelty and abuse they inflict on animals.

    Personally I’d like to see them given a lethal injection or I’d happily give it.

  13. Let’s be clear!! This should not be a misdemeanor this is abuse at the fullest.. this animals life could have ended due to this severe and senseless beating. You that are put the position to up have the law should do “Exactly “ that!! If this we a small child there would be no question would there?? But this is a family member if you believe that or not!! Lowlife scum deserves the fullest extent of the law thrown at him.. listen this puts a message out their that this is acceptable and no punishment will be given and time as well as others this is an absolute disgrace! The more you egnore this abuse the more cases you will see why?? Because they can and also because they “KNOWl” nothing will happen to them!!! This is so wrong on every level!! Do this family and this dog justice he should be behind bars!!!!



  15. I have worked as a Forensic Mental Health Professional and trauma therapist for over 25 years. During this time, I have contracted with jails, prisons, and community corrections in various states, after working as a correctional officer for a few years. I can attest that there is a very strong correlation between the way people treat animals of any kind and the way they can all-too-easily, and without hesitation, remorse, or empathy, treat fellow human beings. If you would not want your son, daughter, sister, brother, grandchild, or parent treated this way, take a stand and sign every petition against animal abuse that you can find – wild and domestic, in the USA and across the world! YES, the pictures & videos are heart-wrenching but ignoring them does not solve the problem. Be brave for the innocent; when you ignore this cruel, heart-less behavior, you are giving more power to the abusers.

  16. What a pis

  17. Poor baby…what a disgusting human

    Please punish him with the felony and jail time he deserves. Also, please make sure he is never allowed near an animal again.
