Ledell Walker of Brooklyn likes to abuse animals, 17th arrest

A brutal Brooklyn man today was busted for starving his pit bull to the point where the tragic animal was eating trash and towels to stay alive, authorities said.



The ASPCA had visited Ledell Walker’s home last year after receiving a call saying his dog was very thin, sources said. Walker, 57, wasn’t home, but afterward, he dropped off his ailing, abused pet at the Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital in Manhattan, authorities said.

His 4-year-old pooch — named “Drew” by the veterinarian staff — was so weak that he could barely walk or lift his head, authorities said.

“Drew was nearly dead upon arrival, it was almost too late to save his life,” said ASPCA spokesman Joseph Pentangelo. “Drew suffered from a combination of starvation and medical neglect.”

The grey-and-white dog was anemic, emaciated and had an untreated intestinal blockage. Surgeons removed trash, chewed pieces of plastic and a towel from his stomach — indicating the poor pup had been scavenging for food.

Walker was charged with animal cruelty.

His arrest was the 17th involving animal cruelty in New York City, and the fifth in Brooklyn, so far this year, Pentangelo said.

He also was recently collared for grand larceny and has a past robbery arrest.

I would love 20 minutes with this guy. "People" who abuse kids, elderly and animals are the lowest lifeforms on the planet and should be penalized eye for an eye.
