A North Miami man was arrested Friday in the animal cruelty case of a dog named Bentley, whose back is raw and scarred with second-and-third-degree burns from a homemade health remedy. Man who burnt his own dog arrested (video).
Though Bentley's condition worsened into a visible severe burn more than 20 inches long, Florvil did not render aid, according to police. The report states that Florvil admitted he did nothing despite Bentley's injuries lasting more than 5-10 days, and even though he knew Bentley was suffering because the dog was crying and having trouble walking.
According to Noah's Arks, Bentley is on pain medications for the burns, but his life is more threatened by a dangerous case of Tetanus stemming from an old bite on his leg. He is also showing neurological issues and a sensitivity to light which requires him to wear sunglasses.
Staff say Bentley is already more relaxed and calm, and hope he’ll be fully recovered in about a month.
