- California, USA -
The Santa Monica Police Department is investigating 46-year-old JEFFREY PREVITE (pictured below), for animal abuse.
A video taken on August 22, outside PREVITE’s residence in the Seychelle Condominiums building in Santa Monica, shows PREVITE abusing his 4-month-old puppy named Beachy.
PREVITE has now been fired from his position of CEO of EBI Consulting, a Los Angeles-based environmental consulting firm.
According to DailyMail.com, PREVITE is also the vice chairman of the board of directors at the company which has over 400 employees in offices across the United States and Canada.
PREVITE was caught on camera violently striking Beachy.
DailyMail.com does not specify Beachy’s gender, so I am going to refer to her as a ‘she’.
PREVITE can be seen in the video picking Beachy up by the scruff of her neck and jerking her through a door before striking her with the palm of his hand.
The concierge of the building told DailyMaily.com that he heard the furbaby whimpering, crying, and yelping from his seat at the front desk.
After he saw on camera PREVITE hitting his defenseless dog, he filed a report to the building's management.
He then told PREVITE he had the footage and was going to write a report.
According to DailyMail.com, the concierge said about PREVITE: “He was very angry. He was choking and slapping the dog. He even slammed the poor dog against the wall.”
The concierge claimed his report was not taken seriously by his manager and said: “My boss laughed in my face. I took the next day off work. I just felt that they should have called the police at least.”
The concierge also mentioned personal details about PREVITE’s life which are irrelevant to the story, but they have been published by DailyMail.com.
The building management submitted a statement to DailyMail.com in which they wrote: “The apparent conduct of the unit owner was abhorrent and completely unacceptable. Building management stands behind our employee and we took swift action including contacting animal control and directing the resident to cease all contact with our employee. We continue to evaluate other measures that can be taken with our counsel.”
PREVITE on the other hand, does not think that what he did was abhorrent.
In fact, in a statement DailyMail.com, although he did not deny being rough with Beachy, he wrote among other things: “ There's nothing illegal about what I did - I said if you need to tell the building, tell the building.” “The building manager took it very seriously. I find it very unfortunate that we are even talking about this.”
WOW, there is nothing illegal about what he did.
But you know what? After I read some more about this creep, I understood why he said that.
DailyMail.com also reports that according to PREVITE’s social media, he is an avid hunter (fancy word for killer).
The last picture, shows PREVITE posing with a dead deer and he captioned this horror: “I did not mean to kill Bambi.”
Well then, if the killing of innocent animals is a joke to him, why would he consider illegal the abuse of a defenseless dog?
The petition also asks that PREVITE performs 1,000 hours of community service at a shelter.
At this time, I do not know whether Beachy was removed from this sick and abusive individual.
The video may be too hard to watch for some of you.
