The Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office have arrested a second person in connection with a March animal cruelty case, in which a dog was found emaciated and with electrical tape wrapped tightly around its snout.

Sheriff’s office public information officer Shannon Volkodav said in an email Friday afternoon, April 25, that Brandon Kaile Duncan had been charged with cruelty to animals. Duncan, who is listed as a Loganville resident, was being held in the Gwinnett County jail without bond.

The dog’s owner, Antonio Furlow, was arrested on March 27 on the same charge. He was released on bond from the county jail on April 10. Furlow was the dog’s owner.

The two men were roommates, according to the sheriff's office.

Snellville Police responded to an animal welfare call on Parkside Court in on March 21 and found the dog. “The dog’s mouth was swollen and bleeding” from the tape, Volkodav said.

Gwinnett County Animal Control took custody of the animal.

Lucy, I find your post "disturbing" to say the least. What do you propose to do since you want to be judge, jury and executioner? You realize that you have just made a documented Terroristic Threat against these people. Do you really want to go to jail for that? Yes, they are savages and will be punished. I have personal thoughts about what I would want to do to child molesters, child killers and rapists. However, I know that I would spend the rest of my life in jail if I did so. This happens every day. You are only seeing one article among hundreds across the US. I have taught my daughter how to defend herself and shoot numerous weapons. Do you feel the same amount of hatred towards ones who offend humans?

TRADE THE SCUM BAG UP WITH AN INNOCENT ANIMAL BEING TESTED ON AT THE CDC. THERE IS ZERO JUSTICE FOR ANIMALS IN GA. UNFORTUNATELY THIS SCUMBAG WILL BE OUT OF JAIL AND DOING IT AGAIN BECAUSE NO ONE CARES. DNR DON'T CARE, COPS DON'T CARE, NO ONE WITH REAL AUTHORITY CARES. AND DON'T GET ME STARTED ON HOW THEY REALLY DON'T CARE ABOUT CATS-MOST OF THEM ARE ABUSED AND NO ONE- I MEAN NO ONE CARES. SCUM EVERY DAY WALK INTO ANIMAL SHELTERS WITH THEIR SMILES AND HAVE THEIR DARK SECRET-BAIT DOGS AND BAIT CATS. SOME SCUM USE THEIR WIVES OR GIRLFRIENDS TO GO AND ADOPT CATS AND DOGS FOR BAIT. UNTIL PEOPLE START TO VIEW CATS AND DOGS AS REAL LIVES AND NOT SOMETHING DISPOSABLE THEN NOTHING WILL BE DONE ABOUT SCUM LIKE THIS. HE IS PROBABLY HANGING OUT WITH THE SCUMBAG GUY THAT JUST GOT 20 YEARS IN DAY CARE ( I MEAN JAIL) FOR DROWNING AND BEATING HIS KID. ASPCA, HUMANE SOCIETY AND COPS (YES, EVEN THE CAT-HATING ONES) NEED TO STEP IN AND GET ON BOARD TO HELPING INNOCENT ANIMALS.

All that HSUS, PETA, ALF, ELF and other organizations help is them selves to their ignorant donors' money. 1% of HSUS contributions goes to local shelters. They moved 26 million dollars offshore to the Cayman Islands, they are being tried under the RICO laws in Oklahoma. PETA kills 97% of the animals it "rescues". Do the research, it's all online. learn the Truth.
