Man Accused Of Attacking His Dog Romeo Will Be Back In Court

A man accused of attacking his dog will be back in court on Thursday.

Investigators say a neighbor videotaped the incident.

Police arrested 30-year-old Ronald Turner, who claimed the dog attacked him.

Police released disturbing still pictures from that video, but WYMT has chosen not to air them.

Investigators say Turner hit and choked the dog and slammed a dog house on top of the Labrador.

The puppy named Romeo is recovering at an animal shelter.

    Animal abuse is horrible and is sometimes and indicator of potential abuse of human beings. It is known that killing anything, just to kill it, is a form of desensitizing people to the idea of harming or killing others. I also agree punishment along with mandatory counseling is absolutely necessary. However, unless you can prove he killed a person hanging is a tad bit over the line!!!! Hypothetically if you hung some one for killing animals then you would have to hang hunters, fishermen, farmers, and so on!!!! I am sure you get the picture. Punish the behavior, which is torture and cruelty to animals. Then you treat the behavior. Please keep your comments rational. No one is going to hang some one for killing animals. Good Day!
