Doctor Who Beat His Dog With A Hammer Will Be Sentenced On Felony Charges

A doctor, convicted of multiple counts of felony torture of an animal, will be sentenced next week in Dearborn County, Indiana. 58-year-old Joseph Stubbers III was convicted of the animal cruelty charges in July; the charges stem from a July 2019 incident when he attacked his own dog, Cooper, with a hammer.

Stubbers beat Cooper in the head with a hammer, and then shot the dog with a handgun, causing Cooper to lose an eye. Stubbers claimed that the five-year-old dog had attacked him, biting him on the arm, and that he used the hammer to stop the “attack.” But bite wounds were not observed on his arm by responding deputies.

As reported by Local 12 News, a neighbor who witnessed the incident said that,  “he saw Stubbers hitting Cooper the dog with a hammer so much it was causing the dog to actually vomit.”

Those who knew Cooper described him as a “gentle giant.” The injured dog was turned over to a local veterinarian, and animal welfare agencies for care.

Stubbers is the owner of Fairfield Primary Care; prosecutors have alerted the medical board about the charges that Stubbers has been convicted of.

Sentencing has been moved to September 14 in Dearborn Superior Court II.

  5. Joseph Stubbers III should spend the rest of his life in prison. He should lose his medical license and his name should be listed on an international registry of animal abusers. He is evil and hopefully there is a special place in hell for people like him.

    • This registry need to be updated to say they can’t own or go near other animals ever. And that he can be arrested if he enters a pet shop or even looks at animals. He needs a floating sign above his head, that goes everywhere with him saying this man is an animal abuser.

  7. He will never ever practice medicine again, he will never touch or go near another animal again, he will be confined to a prison for many years because people like him are never rehabilitated, he will receive true justice for his crimes…wait…what planet am I on? Wishful thinking.

  8. Yes! I think he SHOUD be, but he won’t be!

    he’s clearly a very sick sociopath who will do something else awful some day . The Justice system doesn’t care about animals the way we do! But at least there’s a felony conviction! It’s a small step in the right direction

  11. Remember that face people! If he ever comes to your business refuse him service! He should be stuck off and not allowed to practice medicine, he’s clearly mentally unstable and banned from owning animals for life…the same as anyone who abandons animals without a valid reason or harms them.

  12. A doctor!? What a scumbag and evil person! The neighbor who witnessed this should have immediately stepped in to stop him. I hope this sub human not only loses his practice and license as a ‘doctor’ but does some real jail time…no plea deal or slap on the wrist. He is a dangerous individual to civil society.

  13. I cannot believe that ANYONE would deliver such cruelty to DOG, Cooper — no matter what the STATE of your MIND — we MUST NOT let IDIOT Dr. Joseph Stubbers III get away with this horror — we MUST treat Animal CRIMES seriously — if we are not more firm and serious, we allow the PSYCHOS to continue — we MUST STOP them — you MUST NOT be lax with punishment — throw Dr. Joseph Stubbers III in prison for 5 years — slap with a fine of $10K  — ensure he NEVER again ADOPTS Animals — ensure he comes nowhere NEAR Animals.

  14. An absolute WASTE OF SKIN!!!! Why do we even allow, such trash to even continue breathing. Permanently dispose of this man with a hammer to his skull until death!! Problem completely solved. This should be done with all individuals of people that do this. An animals life is worth more than this scum.

  16. This Dr should never be able to own a pet especially a Dog for the rest of his life. He should be sentenced to the full extent of the law for all of the awful abuse he did to this poor Sweet Baby. I hope the Baby survives. N is given a loving forever home. This awful man belongs in a hard core prison where he is given the same kind of treatment he did to this innocent Sweet Baby.

  18. What’s so disgusting when sentencing animal abusers is they focus on the victim not the crime. A violent crime is a violent crime regardless of wether the victim is human or animal. What the courts should consider the level of violence committed in the crime. The persons mental status and potential for them to commit further violent crimes
