PC 597(B) F(1 Counts)
On Wednesday, September 18, 2013 about 1254 hours, I was detailed to 19691 Camden Avenue in Hayward for an animal
cruelty report. The reporting party, who wishes to remain anonymous called the Sheriffs Office to report a video clip she
had seen which she believed to be an animal cruelty incident. Sheriffs Radio advised an Alameda County Animal Control
Officer was en-route to the location to assist in the investigation.
About 1302 hours, I arrived on scene and contacted the AC officer who told me the reporting party had wanted to ascertain
the welfare of a dog they had seen being abused on a video clip posted on a website called Instagram, which is a video and
picture sharing website.
Several people had witnessed the online video which depicts a ten month-old shiatsu/poodle mix puppy being whipped with
a belt multiple times. The RP decided to call the Sheriffs Office to report the incident.
I viewed the video clip which had since been removed from the website. The person seen whipping the dog is later
identified as Terrell Daniels. Daniels 17 year-old son is filming the incident. The video is somewhat grainy but I can see a
large build black male walking into a room and carrying a small dog in his left hand. Daniels face doesnt face the camera
but his voice is clearly heard.
Daniels holds the dog to the floor with his left hand preventing the dog from running away. As hes pressing down on the
dog, Daniels is heard saying you see that shit! He uses his right hand which is holding a dark colored mens leather belt
with a tan inner side. Daniels is seen whipping the dog eleven times with the belt. After the eighth strike, the dog is heard
yelping in pain until the last strike when Daniels finishes hitting it.
After hes done whipping the dog, Daniels lets it go and he stands up. The dog attempts to run away but Daniels uses his
right foot to kick it as it flees. Daniels yells at the dog as it runs away, Dont shit here! The video ends at this point.
Daniels later gave a statement admitting to disciplining the dog. Daniels said he deliberately avoided striking the dog by
hitting the floor instead as it was being belted. He did admit some of the strikes may have hit the dog accidently.
Daniels was not arrested for the incident.
Submit for PC 597(b): Animal cruelty.
