Sign: Despicable Man Tortured Caged Cat With High Pressure Hose

Published: January 10, 2024 at 03:58 PM Author: PENNY EIMS

Daytona Beach, FL – A Florida man was caught on video using a high-pressure hose on a caged cat in 45-degree weather. The despicable act of cruelty landed Dean Bell, 61, behind bars at the Volusia County Jail on a felony charge of animal cruelty.

The cruel act was captured by a neighbor who recorded Bell spraying the hose directly in the cat’s face; when Bell noticed that he was being recorded, he stopped. When confronted about the incident, Bell tried to excuse his heartless behavior by stating that the cat should not have been in his yard.

The Daytona Beach Police Department issued a release about the appalling incident:

On January 4, 2024, officers responded to the heart-wrenching complaint of animal abuse. During their investigation, they uncovered a video that captured the harrowing incident. This footage reveals the distressing sight of a defenseless cat being mercilessly tormented by the suspect, Dean T. Bell (DOB 4/16/1962). He callously used a high-pressure water hose on the cat, which was helplessly trapped inside a cage. Compounding the severity of the abuse, the temperature at the time was a chilling 45 degrees Fahrenheit.

We do not know the fate of the cat but we are working to find out.

Please add your name to the petition to help Animal Victory hold this man accountable for his despicable act of cruelty. We will fight for the charges to be upheld and not dismissed!

We the undersigned demand that Dean Bell be held accountable for using a high-pressure hose to torture a defenseless, caged cat. This petition acts as our collective endorsement for the maximum penalty allowed by law for any charges stemming from this despicable act of animal cruelty.
