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.
