- Texas, USA -
On the night of Monday, October 9, 2023, the Houston SPCA along with the Harris County Precinct 1 Constable’s office responded to an apartment complex in the 3300 block of North Magregor after receiving a report of animal abuse.
In a press release, the Houston SPCA said that the incident was captured on a Ring doorbell camera. The footage showed a male kicking a dog unable to fight back and unable to call for help! In the disturbing video, the male can be seen lifting the dog by one of his back legs and tossing him across the walkway. The male then proceeds to threaten the dog to kick him some more.
In the press release, the Houston SPCA described the Voiceless Victim as a 50-pound, 1-year-old English Bulldog.
Officials arrived at the location with a civil seizure warrant to rescue the Bulldog, and once on the scene, they found two French Bulldogs. The poor souls were “confined in a small wire kennel, soaked in urine and feces.”
Thankfully, all the furbabies were removed and they are now safe in the care of the Houston SPCA.
In a Facebook post, Harris County Precinct 1 Constable’s office said that the male has been identified but his name has not been made public yet. According to the Facebook post, “The entire investigation has been turned over to the Harris County District Attorney's Office. The DA will decide if and when charges will be filed in this case.”
While stressing the importance of reporting animal cruelty, Jay Chase, Chief Cruelty Investigator at the Houston SPCA, said: “If you are able to safely obtain photos or video to report animal cruelty, it can be very useful against those who dare to commit these crimes in public view.”
In an interview with FOX 26, Harris County Precinct One Constable Alan Rosen rightfully said: “We have to be the voice of the voiceless.”
