Published: August 08, 2020 at 06:52 AM Author: Penny Eims

Tuscaloosa, Alabama – A 21-year-old Alabama man is facing a felony animal cruelty charge for his abuse of three puppies.

Blane Austin Colburn is identified as the man responsible for the abuse; he was charged with first-degree animal abuse after Tuscaloosa Police viewed the disturbing video showing him abusing the puppies.

In the video, which was posted to social media, Colburn can be seen dumping three puppies out of a crate and then picking them up and throwing them into a bathtub and a wall. We need your help to ensure that this man is punished for his cruel behavior!

These innocent puppies did nothing to deserve the treatment they received from Blane Colburn! The video is so disturbing that Facebook blocks it from view due to its graphic nature.

Thanks to an outpouring of assistance from the public, Colburn was identified, arrested, and charged. He was booked into the Tuscaloosa County Jail on a $10,000 bond for the Class C felony charge. Now we want your support to ensure that Blane Colburn receives the maximum punishment for this crime. He must be punished for his behavior and prohibited from owning pets in the future!

Note: As reported in Tuscaloosa News (linked below) the puppies are okay. One puppy suffered minor injuries.

Update 2/23/2022: According to the courthouse, there is a call docket on 2/28/2022 and pre-Trial begins on 3/07/2022.

Update 6/14/2021: AV sent 27,320 signatures to Prosecutor Erin Hardin and Officer Marlyn Anderson.

Update 4/16/2021: The attorney’s office has informed Animal Victory that this case is still on hold to be heard in court. Please sign if you have not already!

1,049 Jeff Dickson Three innocent victims equals three separate offenses. This petition suggests one charge, so the question that MUST be ask here is why would the DA choose to let him get away with the other two, if it's a condition of a plea deal, the DA needs to be yanked out of his office and replaced with someone who will do their job somebody Apr 22, 2022

1,044 Norma Fiedler He unleashed his anger on these defenseless dog which clearly and unequivocally is proof that he will do this again to other animals and to people. However, what is more disturbing is that he does not seem to grasp right from wrong and does not have any feelings. Can this be fixed? Regardless, he should receive the maximum punishment allowed by law or the judge. Apr 16, 2022
