Los Angeles – Below, please find a statement from PETA President Ingrid Newkirk regarding the CEO of a Los Angeles environmental consulting firm, EBI Consulting, who was caught on camera hitting his dog and yanking the animal off the ground:

PETA is pushing for a vigorous prosecution of this abuser, including a lifelong ban on keeping animals, and for the rescue of this poor dog. We want everyone to remember Jeffrey Previte’s name and face, because no one with an ounce of respect for animals or love for a dog should ever give a cent of business to a man who shoots and kills animals for fun when he’s not tormenting his dog at home.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview. More information about the dangers that people who are cruel to animals pose to the community is available here.
