A case of animal abuse that took place in front of two horrified onlookers in the middle of the day has enraged many people.
The video of the surveillance camera showed a dog, likely a Pit Bull, entering the Buffalo Bar in Bournemouth in April of last year. It was obvious the poor animal wasn’t going to harm anyone as it probably wandered off, so the woman sitting on the bench followed after it in order to take it out of the bar.
Once the dog was out, it walked around the patio, sniffing and looking around. At that moment, a man in a blue hoodie walked towards the dog and started punching it severely. He could be seen slamming the poor dog against the fence in an angry manner.
He then grabbed the dog by the scruff of its neck and left the place carrying it in his arms.
The culprit was later identified as 40-year-old Jamie Hill from Bournemouth, Dorset, upon which he was charged with causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal and ordered to appear in court.
But as he failed to do that, the Dorset Police issued a warrant for his arrest and asked the wide public to come forward with any information that could lead to him ending behind bars as soon as possible.
Along with a photo of him, they added info on his height, 5ft 9ins.
PC Emily Watkins, of Bournemouth police, said: “We have carried out numerous enquiries to locate Jamie Hill but these have so far been unsuccessful.
‘I am urging anyone with information as to his whereabouts, or who sees a man matching the description given, to please contact us.
‘While we have no information to suggest that he presents a direct risk to the public, I would urge anyone who sees this man not to approach him but to immediately contact Dorset Police on 999.”
We hope this cruel man would pay for what he did to the poor animal.
Below is the video of the attack. Please proceed with caution.
