David Mogil owner of Damn Yankees restaurants was convicted of aggravated animal cruelty for an incident that occurred November 10, 2014.  On that day, 3 electricians working across the street witnessed Mogil beat his girlfriend’s cocker spaniel outside on a balcony.  The beating was so savage one electrician yelled, “Dude, what the hell?”  The electricians said they heard the dog yelping in pain, one compared to the sound of a dogfight.  Mogil went back in the apartment after being seen.  Mogil came out on the balcony again.  That’s when a security guard saw “Lil” leap off the balcony hitting the pavement below.

Cocker spaniel Coco Lily has since recovered and has a new owner. Mogil remains jailed for striking a police officer.

Auburn, Alabama resident Hal David Moore, 23, was arrested February 16, 2012 on five felony counts of first-degree animal cruelty. Charges also included second-degree arson. Moore broke into his girlfriend’s home on February 16, 2012 setting fire to a bedroom which killed five cocker spaniel puppies. The puppies died of smoke inhalation although the mother survived. Four puppies were found in a bathtub. One puppy was found dead in a cage with its mother.

Ironically, Moore serves as an Auburn fire fighter. According to the victim’s uncle Harold Brown, “The police said whoever did it knew about fire.” Moore was released from the Lee County Detention Facility on a $18,500 bond. Moore is also a student at Auburn University.
