St. Bernard Parish man charged with beating his dog with a boxing glove

Asani Wood, 21, of the 2400 block of St. Matthews Circle in Violet, La. and his friend Johnny Dominick, 21, were arrested and charged with aggravated animal cruelty to a dog, after a cell phone video surfaced of one of the men beating a dog with a boxing glove until the dog became unconscious, reported The Times Picayune.

On Monday, St. Bernard Sheriff Jimmy Pohlmann released a video allegedly showing Wood pick up a gray pit bull by the neck and take her over to the kitchen floor where garbage was strewn. He tells the dog to look at the trash, and then uses his left hand donned with a boxing glove to beat the dog.

During this horrendous act, the dog named Tiger cries out in pain, but that seemingly made no difference to Wood as he then throws the dog across the room, picks her up again, and slams her on her back against the floor.

The other man, Dominick, who was filming the egregious cruelty on his cell phone, warned Wood that he might kill the dog and told him to ease up.

At the end of the beating, Wood looks at the dog warning her never to touch the garbage "one more time."

Calling the video " a graphic scene of cruelty to an animal," Sheriff Pohlmann stated the video was made in December, and during a recent drug arrest of Dominick, 21, the video was discovered.

And perhaps as disturbing, was Wood's reaction while being charged with aggravated animal cruelty, telling authorities he was "disciplining my dog."

Authorities were able to track down Tiger's tragic fate, and found out the dog had been surrendered by Wood to the West Bank facility of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in January. Wood turned Tiger in stating the dog had become aggressive; the facility then euthanized Tiger.

Woods was being held on Monday in St. Bernard Parish Prison in lieu of a $100,000 bond. Dominick was out of jail on a $135,000 bond.

Rest in peace Tiger.
