Woman Jailed For Animal Cruelty After Security Camera Catches Her In The Act

There’s a school of thought that suggests that the true mark of a person is how they behave when they think no one else is watching. The thinking behind that theory is that folks that are beyond reproach will carry themselves in such a fashion no matter what. Those that aren’t? Not so much.

The unfortunate reality is that there are folks out there that will behave in abhorrent fashion when they think there are no witnesses. If this wasn’t the case, there would be no need for surveillance cameras.

There is a need for them, and some of the things that are captured are nothing short of mind-blowing. Many a criminal or wayward employee has been befallen by a hidden camera, and those numbers will continue to rise as long as there are folks with highly questionable decision-making skills roaming the face of the earth.

While the wealth of errors in judgment captured by cameras is certainly off-putting, there are also times that the things that are captured cross the line into the realm of the disturbing.

As AWM shares, that was definitely the case in this situation, and the woman that was captured on camera is now going to jail. Keevonna Cante Wilson, 24, has been arrested and charged with animal cruelty. Wilson was in the closed elevator of a building in Aventura, Florida when she decided to kick the hell out of her small dog.

The shocking security footage was turned over to the authorities, and Wilson was arrested and charged six days after that. Aventura Police Sgt. Chris Goranitis provided some additional details.

“This was a tiny little Yorkie Mix and it is an egregious crime, there is no excuse at all to do that to a small innocent animal, none,” he said. “We were not able to speak to her, she chose not to speak with us but based on the video we found sufficient evidence to place her under arrest for animal cruelty.”

Thankfully, the defenseless animal has been removed from her custody by the Miami-Dade Animal Services Investigators. The dog received medical treatment and was placed in the care of a loving foster family.

Wilson was released after being booked, and it’s unclear if she has an attorney or not. The laws on the books in the state of Florida are pretty clear-cut when it comes to animal cruelty, but there’s no word on what her ultimate punishment will be.

“A person who intentionally commits an act to any animal, or a person who owns or has the custody or control of any animal and fails to act, which results in the cruel death, or excessive or repeated infliction of unnecessary pain or suffering, or causes the same to be done, commits aggravated animal cruelty, a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or by a fine of not more than $10,000, or both,” the law reads.

This is another case in which we can all be thankful for security cameras, but it’s still incredibly unfortunate that they’re even necessary in the first place.
