Man Dragged Dog Behind Truck And Then Threw Her Into The Bed Of The Truck When Confronted

Published: October 28, 2022 at 03:43 PM Author: Penny Eims

Palm Beach County, Florida – On October 9, a witness observed a horrifying situation; a red truck traveling eastbound on Lantana Road was dragging a white bulldog mix who was tethered to the pickup. The helpless dog was spinning on the asphalt, leaving chunks of her flesh on the road.

The good Samaritan was able to catch the attention of the driver, who has been identified as 45-year-old Lisandro Arellano. When the man stopped his truck the witness confronted him, hopeful that the horrifying situation was some type of tragic mistake.

But Arellano’s actions after stopping are nothing short of heartwrenching, and utterly appalling; the man was not shocked, distraught, or apologetic. According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, he “picked the dog up off the ground and threw her in the bed of his truck then drove off.”

Thanks to the quick-thinking witness, who got a photo of the truck’s license plate, the police were able to track Arellano down and arrest him for aggravated animal cruelty to animals. The dog, named Blanco, was turned over to animal control for care, and Arellano was taken to jail, currently facing two animal cruelty charges. Jail records show that he was released on a $3,000 bond on Monday.

*Blanco does not belong to Arellano. According to the authorities, she belongs to a family member that entrusted him with watching her. She suffered severe lacerations but IS expected to recover.

If you are as appalled by Lisandro Arellano’s actions as we are, please add your name to the petition!

We the undersigned demand that Lisandro Arellano be held accountable for dragging this innocent dog behind a moving truck. We are petitioning for Arellano to face the maximum sentence for Aggravated Animal Cruelty and Cruelty towards animals, in addition to a lifelong ban from animal ownership. It is our firm belief that animal abusers must be held accountable for their actions.

Note: Individuals are presumed innocent until they have been found guilty in a court of law. Animal Victory relies upon the authorities and the court system to determine guilt or innocence.
