According to a story published Monday in the Intelligencer, police arrested Anthony Doyle of Wheeling, W. Va. on Sunday night after a witness reported seeing him attack a small dog and discard the body in nearby weeds.
The woman who claims to have witnessed the beating told the authorities that she saw Doyle hitting the little dog on the back porch of a residence, and then:
“Dive On The Small Dog and Punch It Until It Went Limp,”
The witness correctly identified to the authorities the location of where she saw Doyle discard the young Dog’s body.
The Shih Tzu apparently belonged to another woman who became “hysterical” when she entered her apartment and discovered blood splattered on the walls from her fatally injured dog.
Police noted that Doyle was also covered in blood, and appeared to be intoxicated.
Anthony Doyle is now facing felony animal cruelty for the dog’s death.
WHEELING – Police arrested Anthony Doyle Sunday night after he allegedly beat a small dog to death at a Wheeling Island residence and dumped its body in nearby weeds.
Ohio County Magistrate Charles Murphy on Monday arraigned Doyle, 27, of Wheeling on a felony charge of animal cruelty. As of late Monday, Doyle remained in the Northern Regional Jail in Moundsville in lieu of $25,000 cash bond.
According to a police report, officers went to the Island Grill parking lot around 9:30 p.m. Sunday to meet a woman who said she earlier witnessed Doyle beat the dog to death. The woman told police she heard a dog crying earlier that evening before she saw Doyle beating the animal on the back porch of a South Wabash Street residence.
About one hour later, the woman heard the dog crying again. She then saw Doyle “dive on the dog and punch it until it went limp,” the police report states. Doyle then dumped the dog’s body in a weeded area near the house, the witness told police.
Officers traveled to the scene of the alleged crime and found the deceased dog where the witness said Doyle had abandoned it. Animal control removed the dog from the scene.
The dog’s owner arrived at the scene after her downstairs neighbors called her to advise they had heard loud banging coming from her apartment.
She told officers she owned an 18-month-old Shih Tzu. After entering her home with police, the dog’s owner “went hysterical, because the house had blood spatter throughout the apartment,” the report states.
Officers found Doyle inside the apartment. His clothes were covered in blood, and he appeared to be intoxicated, police said. He reportedly denied any knowledge of how the dog had died.
The witness reportedly identified Doyle to officers as the man she had seen beating the dog. Police said Doyle had been staying at the home as a guest.
Protection 4 Animals supports the total banning of the Fur Trade. Currently while officially Dog and Cat Fur is banned in many countries, this does not apply to the Raccoon Dogs being Skinned Alive for their Fur.
Make no mistake this is a Barbaric process carried out by Brutal Chinese workers, that Beat the Dogs with Iron Bars, Kick Stomp, Slam them against concrete walls/floors to stop them struggling.
Then the Fur is Slowly Torn from their bodies in the most agonising and sickening way. They are then thrown to one side where they suffer the most horrendous deaths, that can last up to 3 hours.
