Video Shows Puppies Cruelly Hurled Into South Carolina Lake

Abbeville, SC – Days ago, a man fishing from a small boat at Jim Rampey recreation park/boat ramp in Lownedsville, South Carolina, bore witness to a cruel situation that has sparked widespread outrage thanks to video evidence that he was able to capture.

The man told journalist Cody Alcorn that he was fishing last Sunday when he noticed a group of laughing men on the bank; he decided to take a closer look. The man said that he watched someone in the group hurl two pitbull puppies into the lake, explaining why he decided to get a video of what was happening:

He said he wanted to get it on video before confronting them as it would be one word against the other. It didn’t take long once they noticed him watching/recoding they took off.

Abbeville County Captain Matthew Graham was able to speak with the witness and he learned that the puppies were repeatedly hurled into the water, even though it was only captured once on video. Captain Graham commented on the situation, stating, “We’re not going to tolerate any kind of cruelty towards animals.”

The video circulated widely on social media and enough tips were made to the authorities that Captain Graham was able to confirm to Animal Victory that one man was arrested and another was identified and a warrant for his arrest has been issued. Captain Graham did not release the names of the suspects or provide information about the current status of the puppies who were thrown into the lake.

We need your signatures on the petition to help ensure that this animal cruelty case does not get swept under the rug and these individuals do not get a slap on the wrist for their vile actions. We know that people are outraged and we all want to see these men appropriately punished for what they did.

We the undersigned demand that the men responsible for repeatedly hurling these puppies into the lake are held responsible for their appalling behavior. We are petitioning for these individuals to receive the maximum punishment allowable by law and to be prohibited from owning pets in the future.

Update 6/09/2022: Animal Victory has learned that both defendants are due in Abbeville County Court on June 24, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. Both men have been arrested at this time. Animal Victory has sent 19,454 signatures to Solicitor Michael Black who is representing the state.

Update 4/8/2022: After the publication of this petition, new information regarding the case was made available to the public. On Thursday, the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office arrested Calvin Bynes Hufflin, of Anderson, for ill-treatment of animals, and seized one of the puppies (who is now in the care of a local animal shelter). An arrest warrant has been issued for Carondus Moreck Allen, of Anderson. Allen is facing the same ill-treatment of animals charge and it is believed that he is in possession of the other puppy.
