    What a worthless piece of cr*p! People that abuse animals are just as likely to abuse a people. I hope this worthless thing doesn’t have kids. We need stiffer penalties for animal abuse.

    What an idiot! It takes a real man to do something of this sort to a defenseless animal! I hope he meets another real man in jail and he gets drop kicked!!!

    Thanks to Officer Hogan for acting and arresting this thoughtless young jerk. perhaps he will learn a lesson, and we know the puppy is now safe.

    This man will never make a good companion or father. They say if a man is good to animals he will be a good husband and father. Hope he never abuses a human that way or become a father ever.
