HicksTake a good look at this picture! This is the face of a man, 44 year-old Gary Hicks of Cleburn, who beat his dog to death with his fists in front of a restaurant as witness looked on Sunday nite!

Why did no one stop him?! My God! What is wrong with people that they would just stand there and watch this pig beat an innocent and defenseless dog to death?!

A 44-year-old Cleburne man repeatedly hit his dog Sunday night in front of several witnesses at a shopping center until the dog died, according to a press release from the Cleburne police department.

Police said people who were at a restaurant in the shopping center witnessed the beating.

The dog, named Chopper, was known by many members of the police department.

Police said she was often seen waiting for her owner, Gary Hicks, when he went into stores or restaurants, or following him as they walked throughout town.

According to witnesses, Hicks beat Chopper with his fists on the sidewalk outside the restaurant — the dog ran away from Hicks who called her back and beat her again.

Hicks called for his dog and then hit her at least five separate times before the dog died, according to police.

Police said they had never received information that the dog was aggressive in any way.

Hicks was arrested and charged with cruelty to animals. He could face up to two years in jail and a fine up to $10,000. (My Fox Dallas-Ft Worth)
