Heartbreaking Security Cam Video Shows Dog Sitter Beating His Friend's Bulldog With A Plank Of Wood

Submitted by: daegog 6 months ago in News & Politics


A man was caught on camera repeatedly intimidating and hitting a bulldog, using a mop and a piece of wood. The man was watching the dog, named Boston, for a friend. Justice for poor Boston was served when Laurence Skelson pleaded guilty in court, where he was fined and banned for life from owning a dog.

He's in prison no doubt? Cruelty charges- I will not watch it.

I'd fucking kill him if he did that to my dog.  Hell, I'd beat his ass for doing it to ANY dog.

Little old bald fuck needs to pick on an animal to feel tough.  Fucking pathetic excuse for a man.

It would have never made it to court. Would have just beaten him to death with the same plank of wood.

Yeah, guess some folks are content to be comfortably horrified and outraged in their safe, safe homes.
I'd would have given the coward a beat down too.

This guy would be in a world of hurt had he done this to my dogs.... Something is wrong with this guy.

Seems so odd.
What he did is unacceptable, but what made him do it? Did he not accept the 'dog sitting' job in the first place?

Anyway, him and that chick that flushed her rodent down the bog should have massive fines slapped on them.

There is not really any point in wasting jail space on them though - That is better used for pedos, murderers and dishonest lawyers (IE all of them).

Just went and read the article. I'm so glad this is over in England. Why? Because I would have found him and beat his ass. I agree with squrlz on this one. The fine and court costs were no where near enough for what this man did. Spoiler alert if you click on the article the video autoplays.......I was able to hit pause in time. I just can't bear to watch it. He should be in jail.

I chose not to watch the video because I don't want to spend the next few days tracking this man down to beat him like the fucking dog HE is. I don't understand how some people can just beat an animal and then go home to their kids and wife and be all like (hey I'm home, love love kiss kiss). People like this should be treated just like what they treated the animal like. As I said I haven't watched it but from what Gerry said the owner should be able to do to him what he did to the dog. Such a shame he looks like a real sweetie pie of a dog to. This man will get his someday.......

I doubt people like this ass clown go home and act nice.  There's something fundamentally wrong with this asshole.  And I'd just as soon beat the fuck out of him than try to figure out what his issues are.

The dog's master should be allowed to hit him with a 2x4 a few times.

Anyone who commits abuse on an innocent animal isn't human and deserves no mercy.

Hard to watch. What makes this especially outrageous is the sweet disposition of the dog, which never showed any signs of hostility whatsoever, even while being beaten. I'm getting angrier about it just writing this.

Update: Having just read the article in full, I want to add that the modest fine and court costs that the perpetrator was given are insufficient. The man should have been made to cool his heels in jail for 2 to 4 weeks.

waldo863 Pretty sure most people would attack anyone doing that to their dog.

I wonder why that guy even agreed to watch the dog in the first place.

daegog Oh, I know, but I also know if someone did that to my mother-in-laws dog, she wouldn't have a chance to kill them because the dog would first.

Friendliest dog you've ever met.  Half Pit, Half Boxer.  You touch one of her grandkid's wrong(including my daughter) or hit the dog, it's not so friendly anymore.

She does give a warning growl and that's as far as it's ever gone, but I have no doubt this dog would chew your face off if you didn't back off after the growl.

waldo863    probably would.  boxers and pits are VERY VERY protective of those they consider their own.

chickenfarts Yeah, I had a Pit when I lived in a bad area of town.  If My Mother or I did not let you in the yard, it was not pretty.  We had a doorbell outside the gate, so we could let people in.  The dog was trained this way by the landlord, lol.  Once she let us in, dog was fine around us and anyone we let in.  If we did not let you in and the dog didn't know you though.....not pretty.  Oh, and throwing the dog a piece of steak like you see in movies?  Nope, if the food didn't come from the dish in the back where the landlady put the food, the dog would not touch it.
