Brian Freeman appears in Manhattan Criminal Court on Sept. 11, 2012. He’s charged with kicking a pit bull in the elevator of the Wagner Houses on August 26. Police surveillance video showed the attack, but Freeman’s lawyer claims that the attacker’s identity is not clear.

A Bronx man accused of viciously kicking a pit-bull in a Harlem elevator was held Tuesday in lieu of $3,500 bond.

Brian Freeman, 28, was caught on surveillance tape at the Wagner Houses on E. 120th St. on Aug. 26, leading the cowering pooch into the lift, then repeatedly kicking and punching the poor pup, prosecutors said.

Freeman’s father-in-law took the dog — a tan-and-white pitt-bull mix named Hazel — to an area animal shelter for treatment after the elevator beat-down, prosecutors said.

A rep for New York City Animal Care and Control said Hazel was doing “okay” Tuesday, but offered no additional details about her health.

Freeman, who was arrested yesterday on unrelated marijuana possession charges, was charged with one count of torturing an animal.

The video shows the “dog cower on the elevator floor and move around as if said dog was experiencing substantial pain,” according to the complaint.

Freeman’s lawyer said it’s impossible to determine who the attacker is based solely on the video. — Janon Fisher

Abused monkey finds a loving home at South Texas sanctuary

Comments Off on Abused monkey finds a loving home at South Texas sanctuary

DILLEY — A pet monkey that endured years of heartbreaking cruelty has finally found a loving home at a primate sanctuary in Dilley, Texas

Officials at the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary said the long-tailed macaque was never let out of his small cage to exercise in the 10 years he lived with his former owner in Michigan. The former owners even allegedly got JR high on marijuana and drunk off booze.

Last week, JR made the 28-hour drive to the sanctuary in South Texas, where he was renamed Freeman. Officials said the monkey will be in quarantine for the next two weeks while he received grooming and is introduced to a proper diet.

Born Free USA Director Tim Ajax said in a press release, “This monkey was living a life of horror and we are doing everything we can to help him acclimate. Private ownership of exotic animals, especially primates, is a cruel business that starts with a baby being stolen from his or her mother for profit and often ends in a psychologically damaged animal forced to endure a life of isolation and misery.”

Freeman’s former owner was convinced to release the primate to a sanctuary after years a coaxing from a concerned citizen.
