Pit Bull Eats Puppies After Giving Birth, Owner Charged with Animal Cruelty

BROOKSVILLE – A Pit Bull owner is charged with animal cruelty after an incident last Thursday led Animal Enforcement Officers to find three Pit Bulls living in deplorable conditions.

According to officials, Deputies responded to the 800 block of Leonard Street around 2:30 p.m. Thursday, after reports that someone had been bitten by a loose Pit Bull. Upon arrival Deputies learned that the dog’s owner, 21-year-old Deandre Goodson lived nearby at 871 Josephine Street.

When deputies searched the property they discovered two Pit Bulls bound by heavy chains and did not have water. A third pit bull, a female, was found to be in distress, malnourished, and had extensive scarring on her face and on the front of her body. Deputies say the dog was unable to walk and had mutilated wounds that were already healed over. The dog were seized and transported to Animal Services for immediate medical attention.

Deputies made contact with Goodson who agreed to meet with them at the Animal Services Office in Brooksville.

Goodson told investigators that a friend have him the dogs a year ago and that he had fed them regularly. Goodson says the female recently gave birth to two pups but that she ate them shortly after giving birth. Goodson explained that the female Pit Bull’s injuries were the result of the other two Pit Bulls attacking her. For reasons unknown, Goodson decided not to seek treatment for her injuries.

Goodson was taken into custody and charged with one count of Animal Cruelty. He is currently free on $5,000 bond.

  • Let me tell you all…… Neighbors have reported the situation to EVERYBODY we could, The SHERIFF HIMSELF told people that nothing can be done, We have people who cant sit on their own rear patio because of the stink from the dog crap, We contacted mosquito control in the summer to report a green half filled swimming pool as a problem. Nothing done,. The people involved have long criminal histories, A drug raid took place there, The people who were arrested on a litany of charges are all out of prison even after being arrested again after that,. There are cars parked on the lawn with license plates that get switched around often or are left with no license plates, Code Enforcement does not respond to complaints, Children live in this disaster and DCF does nothing, We cant even think of selling our homes because a potential buyer would see the mess there and run.
    The county pays the rent on the dump and is blind to the situation,

    It is obvious that the people involved are being protected from any action against them for a reason we cant understand. .

    In fear of reprisals I will not post the address of the location.

  • MIKE, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE WOULD I STAND BY AND WATCH AN ELDERLY PERSON BE ATTACKED BY DOGS. ( There are a few neighbors near me I might look away but ELDERLY NEVER.) I also am victim of being retaliated against & am still being harassed by these “people”. I have reported loose dogs only to watch aimal control oficer & dog owners realize they were “buddies” & hold a coffee clatch to catch up on “WHAT YOU BEEN DOIN’??” reported loose dogs again – animal control officer very snotty, me in tears trying to see what next step is, – she calls for sherriff’s officer & makes out like I’M the bad guy !!!! So not only are dog owners & their friends retaliating & harassing me, I feel sherriff’s officers & animal control have joined in too !! YOU SHOULD NOT BE IDENTIFIED TO PERPETRATORS AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED. REPORTERS ARE BEING S
    ALSO, way back in end september UNBELIEVABLE & I posted many pleas for people to drive defensively, be courteous on roads, slow down, LIVE TO SPEND HOLIDAYS WITH YOUR FAMILY. We can’t drive everyone around. When all these accidents & deaths happen, all we can do is pray for the families & injured/deceased. Which we do. If we could change it we would but God won’t let us ” wiggle our noses ” like bewitched’s Samantha.

  • Mike, don’t hate dogs just stupid irresponsible “owners”. When properly trained & socialized dogs can be a blessing- like service dogs for instance helping folks with disabilities ( hearing impaired, seizure prone, child advocacy in courts, etc.) Hernando county has antiquated laws that endanger not only the abused animals but whoever reports the abuser. When a despicable situation such as this pops up they DON’T NEED TO GIVE PERSON’S NAME THAT REPORTED IT. ACTUALLY WHEN ANY COMPLAINT IS MADE THEY SHOULD NOT BE GIVING OUT REPORTEES NAME ADDRESS JUST DEAL WITH COMPLAINT.

    Wednesday, 28 December 2016, 9:14 pm
  • Sit in jail? Three meals? NOT! Have him clean the crates at the rescue or anmiall control. Sure clean up poop, not stop and give back to all animals. Those dogs need to be waled and fed and have crates , and water. Think he could learn a new skill?

    Wednesday, 28 December 2016, 8:49 pm

  • far too common. people just get these dogs to say they have them.. not for a pet or to be loved but like buying some shoes to toss in the corner and often they are abused and neglected. its a terrible awful shame. could not even give these animals water. to me thats torture.

    Wednesday, 28 December 2016, 7:25 pm
  • Two other dogs were probably dog fighting and the hurt one lost. Lets tie this dirt bag up with heavy chains, give him no food and water and let him get beat on by two people. It would have been better if his mother would have eaten him at birth. People like this should never be allowed to own another animal. I sure as hell hope the dude who gave him this injured dog does better with the twins he’s going to father in a few months.

  • The pit bull should of ate his sorry a_s and s__t him out!!.

    Wednesday, 28 December 2016, 7:06 pm
  • Put this piece of s___ in chains with no water or food. Lock him up and forget about that trash. Put him out on the highways with a stripe jump suit with a sign around his neck staying he is an animal abuser and I belong in jail.
    Throw away the key. Never want to see his sorry a__ on the streets again.

  • interesting, there is a house near me with at least 6 dogs being kept under conditions like the article describes but nothing is being done about it, its heart breaking when we hear the yipping of a bait dog getting killed, These dogs are moved in large cages in the late night, the dogs are never seen but can be heard barking all day, certainly if any of these dogs were to escape they would be a danger to people; it seems the house nearby is used for breeding and fight training.

    • Are you kidding me- please list the address

      Wednesday, 28 December 2016, 8:33 pm
      • Suzy, not knowing who you are, I would be leary of listing address myself. You could be one of the folks written about or a friend of tbeirs. Maybe “are you kidding me”is better off calling sherriff’s office & try to have them check this out. Perhaps they can set it up anonymously so dog folks won’t know who called.

        Wednesday, 28 December 2016, 10:03 pm
        • you can tell them I called them wtf does it matter if they know who called, save those little innocent souls.. you are just as bad as the owners if you do nothing!

    • If you inform animal control they want your name, address, etc.Be careful because THIS WILL SET YOU UP FOR RETALIATION & REVENGE. It’s a stupid statute/law that allows scum to keep abusing animals & any humans who cross the scum. THE COUNTY CAN CHANGE THIS – WHY WON’T THEY??? THEY REMAIN PART OF THE PROBLEM WITH STUPID LAWS. Maybe call ASPCA talk to them. In the meantime,pray for the dogs & God’s guidance. I’ll pray for you & for the dogs.

      Wednesday, 28 December 2016, 9:52 pm
      • Damn right you have a drug dealing … dog fighting neighbor who will come after your a$$. The laws need to change in this county … on so many areas I can’t even count them all! Scum bag shouldn’t be allowed to own pets ever again! He should be charged with a felony just as if he were selling drugs.

        The ASPCA does not care. It’s too much work. They’d rather sit on their butts and get their pay!

        I pray every day for this god forsaken county and it doesn’t do any good.

    • Call the cops… everyday do your duty as a neighbor.. Report this don’t just sit there and complain…. Call the shelter, a rescue. it costs you nothing.. DONT BE PART OF THE PROBLEM AND STAND AROUND AND WATCH… HELP THEM POOR BABIES.

      Thursday, 29 December 2016, 8:19 am
    • I pray the proper authorities go there and help the poor dogs and charge the culprits with the maximum that law allows. Whoever does these kinds of things to animals have no souls or conscience.and should be punished accordingly.

      Thursday, 29 December 2016, 10:50 am
    • Are you kidding, Quick question where do you live so these dogs can be checked on…so don’t talk about it be about it…..provide the address

      Friday, 30 December 2016, 10:06 pm
  • He can come up with at least $500 to get out of jail but not anything to feed those poor dogs. Disgusting!!!!

    Wednesday, 28 December 2016, 5:58 pm
  • It’s not the dog, the breed pit bull, it is definitely the owners who need to be cited and punished.

    Wednesday, 28 December 2016, 5:56 pm
  • I often wonder how the dogs get that bad before anyone turns them in. Bless those poor dogs. No animal or human needs to be treated like that. I hope they give him a maximum sentence.

    Wednesday, 28 December 2016, 5:55 pm
  • P.O.S.!……I hope they throw him under the jail. Sad that people treat animals this way.

    Wednesday, 28 December 2016, 5:33 pm
  • I’m not fond of pit bulls but no animal should be treated like this. Bethy knows what to do with this pos! These dogs are way way over bread, the shelters are full of them.
