Dog Reportedly Body-Slammed by Abusive Owner on Public Street Deserves Justice

Target: Mayor Kennedy Stewart, Chair of the Vancouver Police Board

Goal: Bring charges against man who reportedly slammed his dog on hard pavement in a fit of rage.

Horrified pedestrians witnessed an act of alleged animal cruelty on a busy Vancouver, British Columbia street. A man reportedly body-slammed his pit bull in full view of several onlookers, some of whom called emergency services. When authorities arrived on the scene, they heard quite a twisted tale from the witnesses.

According to the onlookers, trouble began when the pit bull lunged at a passerby: an action at least one of the witnesses said was seemingly encouraged by the dog’s owner. Shortly thereafter, the man allegedly crushed his defenseless dog under his own body weight onto the hard pavement. He then apparently made movements to kick the dog in the head, warning off witnesses who attempted to intervene by screaming that the dog was his “property” to do with as he pleased.

Law enforcement officers reportedly found a shaking, wobbling, clearly traumatized dog. One officer said, “it was horrific to see, and I’ve been doing this for 40 years.” Despite the abundance of evidence and witnesses in this disturbing case, the man was ultimately released with no charges.

Sign the petition below to demand real justice in this apparently overt display of animal cruelty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mayor Stewart,

Video has emerged from a Vancouver sidewalk where an alleged crime took place in full view of several citizens. Imagine a crime with video evidence, credible witnesses, and a visibly harmed reported victim. Now, imagine the accused criminal in this seeming slam-dunk case walking away with nary a charge.

We do not need to imagine, because this exact scenario recently played out in Vancouver when an unidentified man allegedly physically assaulted his dog to the point where the poor animal was said to be left trembling, wobbling, and whimpering in fear. Several urgent calls from bystanders brought authorities to the scene, where they proceeded to let this man go without arrest. They now claim an investigation is ongoing, but the current circumstances more than merit a charge of animal cruelty.

As the chair of Vancouver’s Police Board, please help rectify this glaring oversight of a reported crime that took place in plain sight. Ensure the investigation is completed in full and that appropriate charges are sought.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  3. How does that happen. How awful the law doesnt practice the law!!!!!!!! and the dog went home with him???????????
    Unacceptable and disgusting

  4. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE POLICE FORCE IN VANCOUVER ARE THEY JUST AS SICK AS THIS LESS THAN A HUMAN BEING WHO DID THIS TO THIS HELPLESS DOG????? YOU LET THIS PIECE OF SHIT GO WITHOUT ANY CHARGES GET OFF YOUR ASSES AND DO YOUR JOBS OR FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!!!!!

  5. Should take the dog away from the Egoistic troubled monster, if the dog is still with him, i bet the dog is still alive by now. Please kill the monster and save the poor dog

  6. Someone needs to slam that asshole and curb stomp his ass

    • Thomas Kuhn Sr says:

      I completely agree. I wouldn’t have backed off from this POS coward in the first place. Rescue of the innocent dog is was the priority thing to do.

  7. Released with no charges? This is just as disgusting as the act itself. YOU JUST LET A SOCIOPATH RUN LOOSE? This guy is an extreme threat to society, people and animals alike….Just imagine what he does BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. Next time it may not be a dog that angers him, could be a child. Not pressing charges is a deplorable miscarriage of justice.

  8. GUESS THE LAW ARE JUST AS BRAINLESS AS THE POS WHO ABUSED HIS DOG IN PUBLIC AND THEN WONDER WHY THE PUBLIC ARE CALLING FOR THEIR RESIGNATION OR MAN UP AND DO THEIR JOB .. NO WONDER THIS DOG LUNGES AT PEOPLE WITH A BRAINLESS PSYCHOTIC PIECE OF WALKING TRASH FOR AN OWNER .. RETRAIN THE DOG AND THE POLICE AND PUT THE OWNER DOWN !!

    I live in BC. That bastard that was so cruel to the dog MUST be charged severly and harshly.
    The dog must be taken from him and not given back. The dog must be adopted out to someone else. That guy must be banned for life of owning or going near any animals ever again. He must spend 4 years in prison with no early parole and pay a $400,000 fine. Animal cruelty, torture, neglect, abandonment, breeding, animal fighting, and beastiality laws must be made so much more severe. Every person must have their animals taken away from them and never given back. Every person must be banned for life of owning or going near any animals ever again. Even people that leave their pets in cars must have their animals taken away and be banned for life to getting anymore. Each charge must be first degree animal cruelty felonies (not 2nd or 3rd degree-all first degree), EACH charge carries a $100,000 fine, and EACH charge is an automatic 5 years in prison with no early parole. If laws were changed to be this strict and severe, then maybe the abuse would stop.

  10. I agree with all the comments posted. Some people should not have pets or children. That man is a psycho and the dog needs to be taken from him and re-homed into a better family. No animal deserves this disgusting cruelty.

  11. Pamela Smith says:

    And should this dog actually attack someone or another animal, it will be blamed on the dog because it’s a Pitbull when it’s the MONSTER that is in possession of the poor dog who is responsible!!! This is UNACCEPTABLE and the 🤬 needs to be charged with cruelty!!!

  12. If criminals use “this ….. is my property, I can do with it what I want”…. then CHANGE THE LAW to exclude such language and words and assumed rights. NO animal is ‘somebody’s’ property… they are free with freewills and if harmed, should be allowed to be rescued by third parties. Maybe the witnesses weren’t forceful enough with this man. It just takes 3 men to pin down 1 man…. Just do it! 🙂

  13. Police on the scene allowed the abuser to take the dog home with him after hearing the witnesses account of horrible animal cruelty committed by the owner. No animal protection laws in Canada?????? Committing animal cruelty isn’t against the law in Vancouver?????

  14. THIS IS TYPICAL OF COPS TODAY. 20% ARE GOOD PEOPLE WHILE THE REMAINDER ARE SICK, CRUEL PEOPLE.

  15. Mr. Stewart,

    Why are you not stopping this abusor from not serving time for abusing a dog. Empathy would be a word that you need to understand and apply;if not you are all are just as guilty as the idiot scum that abused the poor dog. Everything was recorded on video, how much more evidence do you need?

  16. The owner needs to be fucking killed

  17. At the very least the dog should be removed from this jerks home and he should be banned from owning another animal for life. No ‘pet’ deserves to be treated like trash, used for sick entertainment (encouraged the dog to lunge at people) or abused in any way. He has no right to abuse any animal including his own. Vancouver authorities, do your job, arrest him or admit that you encourage abuse by ignoring this event.

  18. The crazy lunatic walked??? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE LAW??.
    Charge this crazy lunatic with aggravated animal assault. THAT IS WHAT IT IS LAWMAKERS…!!!!!!

    ARE YOU GOING TO DO NOTHING TO PROTECT THIS LITTLE PITT BULL???? His owner is nuts and he is threatening that it is his dog to do WITH what he will. RED FLAG!! RED FLAG!! DAMN IT!!! PLEASE SAVE THIS DOG AND GET IT READOPTED TO SOMEONE WHO HAS HUMANITY!!. THE DOG SHOULD BE LIVING WITH SOMEONE WHO TREATS HIM LIKE GARBAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!PLEASE I AM BEGGING. THIS BITCH DOES NOT DESERVE TO HAVE A PET!!

  19. This is showing its ok to hurt pets. Are ppl next? This fucker should be charged and locked up! I hate ppl. I’d rather be with pets. Charge his ugly ass with animal abuse!
    Prayers sweet poochie.
    This fool needs a beat down

  20. THIS LITTLE DOG SHOULD HAVE GOT/GET MEDICAL ATTENTION!!!! THE OFFICER IS WITHOUT HEART AND SO ARE THE ONLOOKERS!!

    I PRAY THE LORD WILL SAVE HIM….
