A pensacola woman who pleaded guilty to”viciously beating” a small dog while it “cried out in pain” has been sentenced to 90 days in the county jail.
Heidie Creamer, 35, “intentionally and repeatedly” inflicted “unnecessary pain and suffering on a one-year old, five pound Chiweenie (chihuahua/dachshund mix) dog by picking the dog up by its back leg, raising it in the air, then viciously beating the animal while it screamed out in pain and suffering” on September 19, according to an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office report.
Creamer and her boyfriend had been living in a tent on a woman’s property on Frank Ard Road. The woman said Creamer is a “severe meth addict” and her drug abuse had grown out of hand, according to the report. The woman told deputies that Creamer walked over the dog and snatched it up as as it was peacefully sleeping in the shade. After the alleged beating, she carried the dog upside down by one leg about 50 feet back to her tent. The woman said Creamer had beat the dog four or five times in the past month.
Several witnesses provided deputies with a similar account of the incident.
Creamer was also sentenced to three years probation following her release from jail.
In their report, deputies describer Creamer’s tent and living area as “utterly filthy” with a strong body odor. The report also states Creamer was covered all over her body with festering sores and she appeared to be high on some substance.
The deputy reported that when Creamer stepped out of the tent, the Chiweenie and a Yorkie appeared to cower away and try to move away from her as if in great fear.
