Just when you think you’ve seen and heard it all, a crime like this comes along. A man in Florida was arrested for intentionally running over a dog with his truck.
The disturbing video made its rounds on social media, which showed the entire horrific ordeal frame by frame.
The suspect, 29-year-old Robert Joseph Kayat, swerves at the dog, runs it over, gets out of his truck, nudges the dog with his boot, kicks the animal, and then drives away.
Deputies in the Volusia County area of Florida say the dog’s owner found the dead body later that same day west of New Smyrna Beach.
Kayat told police he was trying to “spook the dog.” He said he did not mean to run it over.
He was released on bond that night with a felony charge of aggravated animal cruelty.
We wish for laws to be tougher on animal abusers who do things like this to innocent dogs.
