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]

  1. Come on BC – quit your god damn bleeding hearts bullshit and let’s get this dog taken away from this useless piece of shit owner. Why is it that so many pit bulls are owned by just useless assholes that could not handle or control the dog because they are just stupid to start with. No animal should be beaten and abused by any human, let’s try and fix this problem for this poor dog. This asshole should never be allowed to own ANY animals.

  2. Kathleen Nagy-DeRosa says:

    What the hell is wrong with you people? You have witnesses that saw this bastard abuse this dog. There is NO EXCUSE FOR ABUSE. You allow the abuser to walk away? You are just as guilty of the crime committed against that poor dog by condoning the act. Yes, you condoned the act by your inaction. SHAME ON YOU! I hope you at least had the decency to take the dog away from that jerk, or did you not think that appropriate either? Change your damn laws so that the perpetrator of the crime gets punished for the dirty deeds. Disgusting and sickening. Do the right thing and go get that POS off the street to spare other animals the pain of your inaction.

  3. Make sure this poor excuse for a human being is prosecuted.

  4. FUCK U STUPID PIECES OF SHIT . GET THIS PIECE OF SHIT & SOME 1 PLEASE TAKE THIS PIECE OF SHIT & PUT HIM IN A CAGE WITH A VERY VERY DANGEROUS ANIMAL & LET THEM HAVE THERE WAY WITH THIS STUPID MOTHERFUCKER.

    Dear Mayor Stewart,
    Would you think that it was fair to have released that man (monster, psychopath, criminal, abuser) with no charges after having physically assaulted his dog in front of everyone? Just think of what he would be capable of doing when he is alone with that poor dog?
    Can you advocate for a law whereby ANIMAL CRUELTY OFFENDERS FACE FEDERAL FINES AND IMPRISONMENT?
    Thank you!

  6. Sorry son of an ugly bitch hope someone body slams you really soon useless scunt

  7. WHAT DOES IT SAY ABOUT VANCOUVER WHEN BLATANT, WITNESSED ANIMAL ABUSE IS NOT PROSECUTED???? SHAMEFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. WHAT’S WRONG WITH VANCOUVER OFFICIALS WHO REFUSE TO PROSECUTE BLATANT, WITNESSED ANIMAL ABUSE? NEGLIGENCE?? LAZINESS???
    INCOMPETENCE??? ALL OF THE ABOVE!!!!!!!

  9. THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALLOWING THIS OUTRAGE TO GO UNPUNISHED NEED TO BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE AND PROSECUTED FOR DERELICTION OF THEIR OFFICE. SHAMEFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Kennedy – Here we have evidence and eyewitness testimony and the perpetrator responsible for abusing this innocent animal walks away. WTF? This man should have been prosecuted to the fullest extent allowed under Vancouver law. Until those who hold office that can do something for the innocent victims of the Animal Kingdom take animal torture and murder seriously, this issue will remain a world-wide epidemic.

  11. Mayor Stewart
    Please use this incident as a reminder to others that Vancouver will not tolerate this abuse to animals!! I pray that you have already removed this dog from the horrible life he had!! This man needs to be put in jail!! Why would you let someone like this in society? Hope he feels like a big man now….for what he did to that poor, defenseless animal!! SICKENING
