COLLIER COUNTY, FLORIDA: On Thursday, August 11, police arrested a 23-year-old man after he was accused of hitting a 5-month-old goldendoodle so badly that he died.
Robert William Garon faces animal cruelty charges because this is the second time in five months a dog he took care of has died. When the suspect first appeared in court on Friday, August 12, the judge posted bail at $150,000. Garon was also told he could not have pets or speak to witnesses. Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk said it was one of the worst cases of animal cruelty he had ever seen. The sheriff said in a statement, “This is one of the worst cases of animal cruelty we have seen.” “No animal should have to die in such a horrible way.”

During Friday’s hearing, a prosecutor said, “This dog died from non-accidental blunt force trauma to the head and body.” “A physical examination of the exterior and interior of the body revealed multiple blunt force injuries to the head, lumbar spine and abdomen Garon and his girlfriend took the dog, named Buzz Lightyear, to the pet emergency room on July 29, according to an arrest report from the Collier County Sheriff’s Office. “The puppy was wet, confused and had trouble breathing. The dog could neither stand up nor lift its head. “A veterinary examination revealed possible head trauma, bruising to the right ear and mouth, and muscle damage throughout the body,” the department said. Garon and his girlfriend were unable to tell hospital staff what happened to hurt the dog, they said.
However, when the dog was examined, it was found that his right ear and mouth were injured. X-rays showed the lungs had been crushed. Hospital staff later called the police to report that the dog had been injured and died. They said the dog may have died from a “possible brain hemorrhage.” The sheriff’s report states that the dog died because of Garon’s “torment”. Two people, who asked not to be named, told police Garon was drunk when he locked himself in a room and hit the dog. They said they heard the poor dog “screaming and screaming in pain and they heard the suspect beat the dog to death.” Although the door was locked and the witnesses could not enter, the beating continued for several minutes until the dog stopped crying.

The suspect’s girlfriend, who was also not named, told police she believes Garon really killed the dog. She said she was concerned when she got home to find the dog almost dead. During interrogation, Garon denied harming animals or having a drug problem, which witnesses said. He is currently being held in the Collier County Jail. Fox News said Collier County Domestic Animal Services and the Humane Society of Naples assisted the sheriff’s office in their investigation.
