Media outlets have shared shocking security footage that shows Jeffrey Previte, the CEO of nationwide consulting agency EBI Consulting, abusing a puppy, violently jerking her about and lifting her off the floor by the ears—all apparently because she couldn’t hold her bladder. According to reports, Previte had previously posted a photo of a deer he had shot to his social media account with a caption mocking the animal with the name “Bambi.” Recent news articles report that Previte has “apologized” for abusing his puppy Bici, but that’s too little, too late.
A dog only urinates indoors out of fear, neglect, or an infection—and it’s just as abominable to beat animals for losing control of their bladders as it is children. Previte’s initial attitude was reportedly that he did nothing wrong, so it’s hard to imagine that he’s remorseful, except perhaps for losing business. His “apology” is meaningless to traumatized Bici, who has no way of understanding it and who needs to be rescued as soon as possible.
Felony charges are in order!
Security footage caught a CEO mercilessly beating and yanking his crying puppy.
No-one with a heart should give this man one cent of business; when he’s not tormenting his puppy, he kills other animals for fun. https://t.co/k23vsNprR8

No one with an ounce of respect for animals or love for a dog should ever do business with a man who shoots and kills animals for fun when he’s not tormenting his dog at home.
And it would seem that the “loving family” that Previte has purportedly found for Bici may be his own! On September 11, the Daily Mail quoted his brother as assuring coworkers via e-mail that Bici is “happy, comfy and full on my couch right now.”
PETA is calling on Previte and his family to do the right thing by immediately surrendering Bici so that she can receive the care that she needs and not face future violence, and we urge everyone to join us in that call.
