IF this was a child that this man had beaten up as all lives matter regardless of what species! Would the courts waver on a decision to not return the child back to an abuser & would the child be held responsible for this SCUMBAGS actions. There is no difference here. This dog is a victim of abuse & needs to be kept safe at all cost & given the chance for a good life as he never had one as yet! We must stop taking the easy way out with this killing of innocent animals. They do nothing wrong yet they keep paying the ultimate price of death! Have we as a humans race forgotten how precious a life is as we treasure our own. SHAME on humanity! Karmic laws will see justice is served. I signed, Thanks Elizabeth.

Let's reform the SOB.

Put him in a solitary cell and make him sign Care2 petitions every day or he doesn't
get to eat.
