“I think it’s ridiculous that she is still open and in business, even after everything that happened, and still allowed to even though she has a pending court case for animal abuse charges,” Casey-Brady said. “It shouldn’t be allowed for her to be open. Yes, it’s innocent until proven guilty, but we all know what the verdict will be.”
After being shown clearly abusing a dog in a viral video last year, Phyllis Lucca somehow managed to keep her Happy Puppy Pet Spa in business. Well, it looks like all the negative karma is catching up to her as she has been charged in a second separate incident.
Here’s the scoop from the Herald Tribune:
A Venice dog groomer who was the subject of a viral video last year will be charged with cruelty to animals after she allegedly broke the jaw of a dog she was grooming in October.
Phyllis Lucca, 70, told detectives after being questioned about the case, that she knows she is responsible for injuries to a four-pound poodle named “Pumpkin,” but denied that it was an act of cruelty, according to the probable cause affidavit.
The pet salon owner was the subject of a Facebook video in November, which was posted by a former employee Briana Casey-Brady, that allegedly showed Lucca abusing another dog. No charges were filed for that incident.
The Happy Puppy Pet Spa is located at 728 Shamrock Avenue in Venice.
Casey-Brady said she has been harassed since posting the video last year. She is upset that Lucca’s business is still open.
“I am a firm believer in karma, good and bad, it always happens. And now, her bad karma is catching up.”
What’s truly astounding is that after the video went viral, there was still enough business in Venice for her to stay open. We’ve gone ahead and posted the video below, but we have to warn you, it’s pretty graphic. If you’ve got young ones in the room with you, we recommend you send them off to play before watching it.
Let’s just hope and pray that this sick and twisted woman gets some jail time over this and is forced to close her business. We don’t want to see any more innocent babies hurt!
Can you believe this evil woman?
