BOYNTON BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com)(Source: Boynton Beach Police Advisory Verbatim) — On Sunday, Boynton Beach Police was made aware of a deeply concerning video circulating on social media of a man punching a dog in Intracoastal Park in the City of Boynton Beach.
An officer immediately responded to the park to gather the initial facts, and turned the case over to our animal cruelty investigator.
This morning, Inv. Liz Roehrich interviewed the man in the video and took custody of his dog for an exanimation by a veterinarian at Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control.
Adi, short for Addison, a two-year-old female Pit-Lab mix, will remain in the custody of Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control pending the outcome of the investigation.
“I will do my absolute best to pursue justice for this innocent animal,” said Roehrich, who has served as the department’s animal cruelty investigator for 28 years. “We will always investigate acts of animal abuse and neglect in the city.”
In addition, Roehrich will be performing a welfare check at the man’s home to ensure the safety of his other animals.
We will provide further information on this investigation as soon as it becomes available.
