A dog was allegedly abused and left tethered to a tree outside in the bitter cold. The suspect reportedly punched the poor dog and twisted his collar while trying to get him into a car. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

Brookline police arrested Joseph Driscoll after he allegedly punched his dog in the ribs. A witness stated that Driscoll was trying to get the dog, a one-year-old mixed breed named Slater, into his car at a convenience store and appeared to become frustrated with the dog. Per the witness, Driscoll punched Slater and then twisted his collar, causing him to yelp.

Dear County Attorney Hogan,

A dog was allegedly physically abused and left outside in a snowstorm. Per a witness, the suspect punched the dog in the ribs when he wouldn’t get into the car. We demand justice for this poor dog.

Brookline police charged Joseph Driscoll with animal cruelty after he allegedly punched and choked his dog. Per a witness, Driscoll punched Slater, a one-year-old mixed breed, in the ribs and twisted his collar until he yelped in pain. Driscoll then allegedly cursed at the witness and told them to mind their own business. Police arrived at Driscoll’s home and reportedly found Slater tethered to a tree outside without shelter in 20-degree weather. Slater was taken to the Animal Rescue League and remains under their care.

This horrific abuse cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

  1. Throw the book at it! The pos didn’t even care if anybody saw him hurt the innocent! No place in the general population for a coldblooded creature like that to be floating around! Sentence it to prison for a few years…a maximum security prison and give it hardtime! Work his ass off! Then when it gets out make sure it never gets near another an8mal again…like peoples pets….you know what I mean.

    “If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.” St. Francis of Assisi

  3. Send this criminal to jail or leave him out in the cold without adequate protection, like he did to this beautiful dog. Force this criminal to get mental health treatment, if he is at all rehabilitative.

  4. Sabrina Hart says:
