There is a direct line that connects a person who abuses animals and one that inflicts violence on a human. Multiple studies
speak to the fact that someone capable of beating or murdering animals is equally capable of doing so to a loved one.
There is no clearer example of that than what you can see in a video that was recently released by Nevada Voters For Animals.
In it, a man sitting next to a dog who is calmly lying at his feet begins to address the camera. The man says "See, now you get to see what I am going to do to your daughter or your sister," then he grabs the unsuspecting dog by the collar and begins to whale on it in a manner so shocking and violent
that the Care2 Team had to pause the video and look away to collect themselves.
Apart from committing an utterly brutal case of animal abuse on film, the unknown man is also threatening to do the same to the humans. The video is meant to be a threat and has no doubt struck fear in the person to which the video was sent.
After the video went public several people rallied to find out as much information about the man as possible and alert officials for fear that the safety of the dog and the unidentified intended human victims. The case at the moment is being handled by the FBI but this man has not been caught, and often when cases involved animal abuse they are quickly forgotten since they are viewed as less important. However, as we can clearly see in this video there are more lives in danger here than just that of the dog's.
We must make sure that we keep this case in the public eye and demand that the FBI and other law enforcement continue the search for this violent human being. He must be taken off the streets to protect the public and especially the people he threatened in the video. Please sign the petition and demand that the FBI doesn't stop until they have this man in custody!
