Florida man accused of throwing family puppy against a wall
The incident took place in Saint Petersburg, Florida. A Florida man grabbed a family-owned puppy and threw it against the wall. The puppy, which was learned to be 14 weeks old, lost his sight due to the impact. The Florida man was taken into custody following the accusations.
Willie Capehart, 62, was expected to watch for a puppy and two children. The puppy, the children, and Capehart were at home. The children suddenly heard a loud noise and ran to where the sound came from. When the children went to the room, they encountered an unexpected sight.
The children noticed that the puppy had been thrown into the corner of the room. There were also quite noticeable blood stains on the wall. An arrest warrant was issued for Capehart when the incident was reported to the police. The police arrest report did not contain good statements about the puppy’s condition.
According to the arrest report, the puppy was constantly vomiting and was unable to move. The puppy was hurriedly taken to a veterinarian. The veterinarian stated that after treating the puppy, it received severe blows to the head and could remain blind forever.
It has been learned that the puppy will be kept under observation for a while. Since the condition of the blows it received was severe, it was thought this would be the best decision. The final state of the puppy will be known in the coming days. Still, it should be noted that the veterinarian is not very hopeful.
Authorities stated that Capehart may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the incident. In addition, Capehart left the children alone after the incident. The dog’s owner stated that she would file a criminal complaint against Capehart and would not let go of the incident.
The dog’s owner also said that children should not be left alone. According to police records, Capehart was charged with animal cruelty and child neglect. It is unknown whether the children experienced any psychological trauma due to the incident.
