Authorities in Florida are searching for a Daytona Beach man, accused of committing a horrible case of animal cruelty. A warrant was issued onMonday for 37-year-old Kenneth Junior Williams, after police found a dog in terrible condition at his home.
A Good Samaritan called authorities and reported a possibly neglected dog in William’s backyard. When police arrived, they found a brindle mix with a chain wrapped tightly around his neck. One end of that chain was bolted to a tree with a pair of deadbolt locks. The other end of the chain was embedded three-inches-deep in the animal’s neck. Exposed, rotting and infected flesh surrounded the wound, which gave off an awful odor. The weight of the locks were “pulling the dog’s exposed hanging flesh down even more.”
Daytona Beach police report that the dog was so emaciated, you could see his ribs. According to the report, “the dog appeared to be suffering from repeated infliction and unnecessary pain and suffering due to lack of veterinary care.” They used bolt cutters to free the dog and transported it to an animal hospital. Anyone with information on this case, or knows where Williams is, is asked to please contact Daytona Beach police at 386-671-5100.
