A Florida man finds himself in hot water with the authorities after his disgusting actions were caught on tape, The disgusting act was caught on tape and is not for the weak at hear.
According to Click Orlando, Officials with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office said James Cordell Doughty Suthann, who was working at a local grooming salon, became angry when an 8-year-old German shepherd service dog named TT would not stand still.
Deputies said a video shows Suthann cinch TT’s head down so tightly that she could no longer move. Later in the video, Suthann grabs the dog’s tail and lifts her off the ground, causing her tail to be twisted and broken off. Deputies said it could not be reattached.
Deputies said that at the end of the video, Suthann is seen hitting TT in the back of the head with the nozzle of a hose he was using to bathe her.
“He hits her in the head with the water nozzle at the end of it, had the audacity to do that, as if enough punishment hadn’t been inflicted on this animal,” Sheriff Wayne Ivey said.
The video of the abuse is so graphic officials decided not to post it.
“That is one of the most difficult things I have ever had to watch in my 39 years of law enforcement, because of the horrific and cruel way the pet was treated,” Ivey said.
According to police, Suthann showed no remorse for his actions.
TT’s owner Rick McGuire, a disabled veteran who has post-traumatic stress disorder, was devastated by the abuse to his dog. He said TT had emergency surgery to amputate her tail and is in the process of recovering. She recently had her stitches removed.
“I don’t think she really misses (her tail), as far as I can tell, but I really don’t know what’s in her head,” McGuire said.
McGuire said he immediately knew something was wrong when he picked up TT and she wouldn’t sit or lie down, but it wasn’t until Monday that he saw the video and the full extent of the abuse.
“It was a horrible, horrible thing to watch,” McGuire said.
James Cordell Doughty Suthann was arrested Monday on suspicion of felony cruelty to animals and taken into custody.
“Unfortunately, the maximum bond that could be placed on Suthann was $2,000 because they don’t let me personally set the bond amounts for criminals like this guy,” Ivey said.
