Multiple Pit Bulls Seized by Animal Control After Owner Allegedly Beat Them with Shovel

BROOKSVILLE – Multiple Pit Bulls were seized by Animal Control Officers Thursday, after witnesses called the Sheriff’s Office to report that the owner was beating them with a shovel.

According to officials, Animal Enforcement Officer Mandy Rowe responded 8389 Evergreen Ave on December 11th, in reference to an animal complaint.

Several complainants contacted the Sheriff’s Office to report that 61-Year-old Ronald Demille Jr. was beating his Pit Bulls with chairs and other objects, because they were fighting.

One witness told Rowe that they observed Demille hit the dogs with a shovel several times and that it wasn’t the first time that they had witnessed the abuse.

On December 15th, Rowe returned to the residence to the area to speak with three additional complainants regarding Demille’s alleged abuse.

10 days after the initial complaint, Rowe returned to Demille’s residence and placed him into custody on three counts of Animal Cruelty. Demille remains behind bars on a $3,000 bond.

A total of 10 Pit Bulls were seized by Animal Control and Demille has been ordered not to have contact with any animals.

  • you do not hit animals with a bat a shovel a chair or anything else. If you want to separate them grab them by their back legs and pull them apart.

  • The 10 pit bulls would like to thank all who called animal control on their behalf. YOU WERE A BLESSING TO THESE ANIMALS – BE PROUD OF YOURSELVES. As for the “owner” he should NEVER BE ALLOWED TO OWN ANY ANIMALS AGAIN. He looks like a drunk who takes his anger out on anything except himself. Those who gave reports should be allowed to go to his trial and see he is blocked from sucking air on this earth. Maybe other pit bull owners should organize and run his ass out of dodge after beating him with shovels, chairs, etc. I, for one, would never rat them out – convenient blindness, you know.

    • No, no, no don’t run his ass out of town, keep him where he is. I don’t want his type moving into my neighborhood. Thank you Brooksville.

  • Was he beating them because he had nothing else to do, or was he beating them to get them separated when they were fighting? Ive had to separate a few dog fights and it may sound poorly of me, but I understand beating them to try to separate them, especially pitbulls. Ive had to separate 2 80lb pits lockjawed on each others mouths and it was not fun. We didn’t want to get to close to their heads because even though they were lockjawed we were afraid they might let go and turn on us. We tried hitting them both with a bat, sprayed them with a hose, kept jabbing them with a broomstick, and they were still thrashing around growling and bleeding everywhere. It took 5 of us punching, kicking, and pulling them away from each other to finally break their lock. So, I could understand beating them to break them up cause Ive been there and it was a scary situation. That being said, he should still be held accountable for being an irresponsible owner for having too many dangerous animals that he can’t control. Pits should be regulated.

    • You talk like a person with a paper a**hole! You said, “was he beating them because he had nothing else to do….?” What kind of a question is that. You are no different than he is if you were involved because YOU HAD TO SEPARATE two pits from fighting. Your picture belongs right up there in the box where his is. And, yes, it does sound poorly of you the only difference between you and him is that he was caught and you weren’t.

      • So if 2 or more pits are locked onto each other, shaking the hell out of each other, what is it u think should be done?? U know,,to get them separated? Maybe whisper sweet nothing’s into their eats? Pet em real soft and talk nice to em? Let me know how that works out for u.

  • This just shows pits are not as bad as people make them out to be, they were being beat and still didn’t attack. poor babies hope they find homes for them.
