Man Throws Puppy in Trunk After Kicking, Punching It in Walmart Parking Lot

By Colin Fredericson

A man punched and kicked a puppy, then stuffed it in his car’s trunk in Slidell, Louisiana, at around 4 p.m. on Aug. 10. Police arrived and arrested Louis Ladner for animal cruelty in the parking lot of the local Walmart, as reported by ABC affiliate WGNO.

Witnesses called police when they saw Ladner abusing the dog. When police arrived they could not locate the puppy. Ladner then directed them to the trunk of his car, where the police found the pitbull puppy.

Before the incident, Ladner left the dog in the main part of his car for 20 minutes so he could go shopping. When he came back, he said the dog attacked him and his infant child. Witnesses said that he spent the next 10 minutes beating the dog before throwing it in the trunk. Witnesses said they heard the dog “screaming bloody murder.”

The dog was taken by police and handed over to a responsible person. Ladner was arrested and charged with animal cruelty. Ladner faces previous charges for aggravated battery with a dangerous weapon and contempt of court related to a charge of operating a clandestine laboratory, as reported by The Times-Picayune.

Ladner is 39 years old and is from Kiln, Mississippi.

Slidell police posted news of the arrest on their Facebook page. Commenters had no kind words for Ladner. Some were wishing he would receive the same treatment that he gave the puppy. Other people praised the police for taking an animal abuser off the streets.

Facebook commenter Frank Huggins had a suggestion for police. “Turn this guy over to the LSU football team for dummy practice and let him learn what a real beating feels like.”

“Thanks SPD! Now if we just had harsher laws when it comes to these MONSTERS who abuse children and animals. I am proud of our SPD for doing a fine job of getting the losers off the streets and locked up in spite of having to watch many of them get a slap on the wrist at sentencing. Again, thank you!” said commenter Linda S. Myatt.

Other commenters are actively sharing their findings after calling the police department to check on the condition of the puppy.
