Puppies killed with hammer

Decatur, Tn

Date: Oct. 31 2005

Alled Abuser- Ned F. Proffitt case Id 5921

Classifaction -Beating Animal - Dog ( non Pit bull) Animal was off leash

A man who was preparing to go trick or treaing with his in Halloween evening says he saw his landlord kill some puppies with a hammer.

The man James Shelton, showed local news the home video he took of puppies taht have been living with other adult dogs in the same woods and feild across from the proffitt Moblie Home Prk in Decatur, Tennessee where he lives.

"They lay out in thegrass and they've been sniffing around" Shelton said.

He and neighbors were feeding the homelss animals up until Halloween evening.

Shelton said that's when "my son was looking out the window and we heard a gun shot"

Shelton said his landlord, Ned Proffitt, was shootong at the puppies. Shelton grabbed his camcorder and videotapped the attack.

In that video Ned Proffitt is seen striking a black puppy in the head with a hammer. It falls to the ground and Proffott strikes it another eight times. A moment later he is seen striking another puppy in deep grass. Later in the video the dead puppies are seen in close up shots that shows massive wounds to the animals heads. back, and mid-sections.

Shelton was so upset about what he saw he took is video tape to the Decatur Police Department tp file a report.

Of six puppies known to be in the area two were killed, one was taken by a neighbor and three have not been seen since thet night of the attack.

Sgt. Eric Denton said a crimimnal summons was issued for Ned Proffitt charging him with animal cruelty: a misdemeanor in Tennesse. The case now goes before Meigs County sessions court Judge JAne Johnston-Crawley a date has yet to be determined.

Proffitt says a stray adult dog actually tried to attack someone in the neighborhood and since the town can't help him he had no choice but to try to shoot her. un forunatley, he says, he hit the puppies and when he seen they weren't dead. he says he did the humane thing. That's when the cameras caught him beating the dogs to death.

Case update Nov 7 2005

Ned Proffitt. who has been charged with animal cruelty, told WTVC-Tv in Chatanooga Tn. that the videotape of him beating the two pups with a hammer does not start until after he had tried to shoot a stray dog and instead shot the pups wounding them.

Proffitt told the station that when he saw the pups weren't dead he did what he considered the human ething and beat them to death with a hammer.

Proffitt said his mobile home park has a promblem with nusance stray dogs and some residents have been frightened.

Bobbie Fisher, a neighbor, said she " got bit up and tore up by the puppies" The mother wasn't ther but I'm glad she wasn't because she's wild."

Proffitt said he previously had set traps and called police but the promblem continued. Decatur and Meigs county do not have animal control officers.

"I do not like to kill animals" Proffitt told WTCV" But someone has to take responsiillity. I wouldn't want those kids in the neighborhood to get hurt or anything.

Decatur mayor Dean Herny said Proffitt has other options in dealing with strays.

" If we've gotten a phone call, notifying our police department of a stray dog, our policemen actually take a cage and go out and trap that animal" Herny said " them we take it to a local veternarian and let the vet care for it.

Herny said Decatur is a small town and" we just dont have the funding available to have animal control and bulid a shelter and everything. Our tax base just won't allow for that."

Why is Pit bull or non pit bull relavant? That comment is so sad because it implies it would be more acceptable or understandable if it as a pit bull

I signed and I think the story is very sad. There is nothing I hate more than a coward who abuses animals.
