Husky Rescued After Owner Beat Him Mercilessly For Months; 1 Arrested On Animal Abuse
A Siberian Husky was rescued by Sweetwater Police after he suffered several injuries after the abuse he was facing for months.
On Wednesday, Sweetwater police charged a 20-year-old man with felony animal cruelty after learning that his neighbor had called 911 to report that the man had been beating his dog for months.
After receiving the 911 call at approximately nine o’clock at night, police said they went to The One at University City apartments, which are situated at 740 SW 109th Ave.
The neighbor informed police, according to an arrest record, that Jordi Ray Bermudez had been “repeatedly” beating the dog since September and that she had many videos of the white Siberian husky “screaming and yelping.”
After hearing the dog’s cries, the neighbor claimed to have rushed to her peephole on Wednesday. There, she witnessed Bermudez “chasing the dog in the hallway and then grabbing the dog and beginning to punch it repeatedly and excessively in the torso area before dragging it back into his apartment.”
Bermudez was charged with animal cruelty with the intent to cause harm or death, but he was bonded out of the Miami-Dade jail.
