tomhurschdAfter Tom-Jan Hüsch’s girlfriend broke up with him, the 20-year-old decided to take revenge by hitting a dog she had given him as a gift and posting a video of the attack on Facebook.

Although the video has since been removed, it was uploaded to several different sites and has gone viral worldwide angering animal lovers in the process.

According to police officer Norbert Skalsk, the 10-week-old pup was left with a swollen face, a missing tooth and a concussion.

Hüsch’s girlfriend made a formal complaint to the police on February 17th after receiving the video through WhatsApp.

In the video, Hüsch also threatens to kill the little one and anyone else who provokes him.

Authorities quickly removed the dog from the property and sent Hüsch to a mental institution for a few days, wrote German newspaper Rhein Zeitung.

Luckily, the puppy quickly found a foster family where he will be loved and recover from the trauma.

In Germany, the Animal Protection Act states sentences of up to 3 years in prison or a fine.



The story that Hüsch was beaten up by an angry animal lover has been circulating the web since the attack, it has now been discovered it is not true and the picture had been photoshopped.

    Looks like a beagle, which is what I have. Seeing this makes me want to kick his face in. I got my dog when he was just 9 weeks. I can’t imagine somebody living with themselves after that. What a waste of blood he is. It doesn’t take much to scare a poor dog that size to pee itself like that. Those dogs hardly ever have a harmful bone in their body. I hope this POS gets raped in prison…

    • €vil Je$ture

      So you would wish for anoyher man to suffer, your no better than he is for wanting to see anyone suffer. This guy want to make hos ex suffer, same shit you’re doing. Hope your kids see the same faith as you wish upon another person.

    • The Truth

      Oh please you Internet keyboard warrior. If you even touched this guy you’d go to prison. All of you people act so tough online but you wouldn’t do anything in person. I’m so sick of you people online. The annoying keyboard warrior type online is way worse than this guy.

      • DanSimpson

        Have you ever considered that SOME of us do not care, as long as the abuser gets what’s coming to him? No, you’re too stupid to think that far ahead. And believe me, I couldn’t care less about what you think or say, you’re just another mamma’s boy, sucking hind tit, and pulling on her skirt. Wimpy fucking douche bag.

      • Noushin Snipes

        Hey The Truth. You realize you’re saying you hate “keyboard warriors” and are acting tough trying to be one yourself right? You’re basically a contradicting douche bag trying to act cool. Grow up dumbass and stop trying to start shit with people who are offended by animal abuse. If you are “sick of people online” then get the fuck off the computer and go get a life….or you know, do the world a favor a die 😉 either way works.

        You do also realize this guy was found by a stranger who kicked his ass from something online, right? He’s not in jail for beating the guy either, they even interviewed him.

        • jimmy johnson

          Uh you’re talking out your backside. He wasn’t beaten at all, the pic of him beaten was proven photo shopped. Where you get that they have interviewed a non existent person is beyond me.

          • MyKinKStar

            Bad enough idiots are still passing on this stupid photoshop LIE, but now there are idiots adding to it (interview? Ha!) AS IF that makes it true. No, it’s still a LIE!

            • jimmy johnson

              Ya lol. I’m sure he has a friend of a friend that has verified the beating and interview though..

          • Jamie K.

            No, I’m talking about what the article said. If it’s a fake, I suppose it’s to be expected…it is the internet after all. Someone should beat him bloody if it as truly fake. I can’t find any claims that it is fake.
            Copy pasting said article “After Tom-Jan Hüsch’s girlfriend broke up with him, he decided to take revenge to an extreme level by violently hitting and punching the dog his girlfriend bought him as a present. Worst of all he decided to film it all and upload to Facebook.

            This video was since removed from Facebook, however the video instantly went viral, attracting the attention of one man who decided to bring this little dog justice by tracking down Hüsch and inflicting the same pain to him that Hüsch inflicted on the poor, defenseless animal.

            The guy also took a video of himself beating up Hüsch, which he later posted online as a warning to everyone that animal cruelty and abuse would not be tolerated in Germany.

            Hüsch’s attacker was later identified as Josef Guldschmitt. Guldschmitt explained his attack in a interview by phone this evening.

            “I really wanted him to die.” said Guldschmitt. “If I could have found my pliers, I would have twisted his scrotum off too.”

            As of today, no charges have been filed against Guldschmitt.”

            Type in “Josef Guldschmitt” and it’s everywhere.

            • MyKinKStar

              Pffft! Dude, it’s FAKE, so give it up. Believing the lie won’t make it true and just because it’s ‘everywhere’ on the interWEBS sure isn’t a way to justify anything either! The so-called video of him being beat up isn’t even in German! It’s been a long time, but I think it was Russian and again, NOT THIS GUY!

              • Jamie K.

                I understand that you see only what you want to, considering I said “It’s the internet, not surprising” and pretty much AGREED WITH YOU. Oh great master Blind. lol I just posted what I read, I never, anywhere in that comment, stated it was a fact, simply that’s what was written.

            • STFUTWIT

              So what about child abusers…..it the a lesser crime?

                  Hey you’re right and it seems like this guy doesn’t understand what you’re saying ,the picture in this site its fake yeah but in fact he was beaten up and that ! is real…Theres a horrible video on the internet (search it if you know how you will find the video) that shows a guy punching him in the face and kicking his back

        • MyKinKStar

          Reading is fundamental. Update posted in the story says this: The story that Hüsch was beaten up by an angry animal lover has been circulating the web since the attack, it has now been discovered it is not true and the picture had been photoshopped.

          • Jamie K.

            It didn’t say it on the post I saw, you do realize it’s all over the place, and I mean all over, right? You said it yourself. Checked and re-checked. I did, however, see the claim it was photoshopped on ONE post after much searching…that originated on facebook I might add. But like I said, I believe it’s fake. Reading is indeed fundamental, you should probably follow your own advice and READ considering I have not disagreed with you and you’re still chomping at the bit. I simply stated it didn’t say that there. Which it didn’t. I copy-pasted the entire thing. Why the hell would I go read the other hundred to see fake updates on a fake post? lol
            You can’t believe anything you see online, on the news…or what people post that they think they know oh so well.

      Obviously not smart enough or she’d have took the dog with her… Just saying.

      • Riana van Zyl

        Agree. Surely she must have known how horrible this creature was – That sort of behaviour is not something one developes overnight. I would never have left the dog with him.

    • Aj

      Still, some people just shouldn’t be allowed themselves human, and to call this guy an animal would insult animals. Also apologise if I came across a bit rude, re reading my comment it would appear that way. (would have replied to second comment but wouldn’t let me lol.)

      • Riana van Zyl

        It is normal to feel like that after seeing such horrific violence against a defenseless puppy.

        I think we all said things here that we perhaps should not have but I became very angry and distressed after I saw this film and was so upset that I developed a severe headache.

        • Tandi Noggle

          In my profession I see it ALL the time. No, I do not regret wanting to see all animal abusers shot dead. Lighten Earths load of useless scum.

    I was absolutely revolted and frankly shed some tears after seeing that footage. I don’t understand how people can do this to animals. I am glad he was institutionalized for a couple days … but definitely happy the authorities got the poor thing out of that house and the dog has since been adopted.

    • Riana van Zyl

      It was really hard for me to see it also, Mystik. I truly hope that horrible creature read all these message people have written about him.

    • MyKinKStar

      It is too good to be true, because it’s not true. The picture is photoshopped and a video going around isn’t the same guy either.

  • yerflap54

    Can I please have this wankers address? I am visiting Germany soon and would like to exchange some ldeas with Herr Husch. Danke.

  • MyKinKStar

    If you have children in your life, pay attention to them. LOOK them in the eyes and give them time to feel and learn respect, because the ones who bully or beat others want to feel special, to make up for what they aren’t getting any other way.

    When we make eye contact it’s honest and true. So simple really, to prevent lies and thievery..

    • Riana van Zyl

      Have a look at the film again and I think you will agree that no one would like to look into those hard “almost stoned” eyes.

    Take him to the dump and suffocate him. He is defective and needs to be destroyed.

    My heart is broken and I cannot stop crying. This stupid idiotic creature is not worth being called a human being.

    A few days in a mental institution is laughable? He needs to be in prison for life.

    Hope the little sweetheart DEFENSELESS puppy is now safe and very happy where he is and truly got over the pain and trauma this horrible sicko inflicted.

    I am not an aggressive person, however, I do not even want to think what I would do with this guy if I ever see him face-to-face.

    human breeed small dogs which will never be able to defend themselves..he would have never done that to a wolf/ big dog because his fist would probably break…small dogs will always get abused..look at foxes in uk,they are treated so badly..the reality is human is playing god breeding dogs in sizes which will never survive in a natural habitat..and most abused i have seen online for pets are against small dogs

    • Travis J

      I think you are right that humans are always playing god with everything on this planet. But humans will abuse all types of dogs, look at dog fighting for example. And it’s not just small animals but large ones as well. We have invented animal circuses, tiger farms, bear baiting and the list goes on and on.

  • Fancyme

    can someone really beat his ass.. He put that photo of his sorry ass beat up CUS he is scared… and HE does and should have some animal love beat his ass.. Hes a punk and hasnt paid for hitting the dog.. Please some real man out there get ahold of him tie him to a tree and leave his sorry ass.. I wont tell wil you!

    All you assholes talking about killing him are no different than he is. Do you fuckers really have the balls kill a human? I bet none of you assholes will kill anyone, so stfu, you’re no better. Don’t pretend you would put a knife to his neck or shoot him. You beating another human is worst than the dog getting beaten. I don’t support this action of beating a pup or assholes talking about killing. Don’t talk like a killer, the day someone is out to kill you, I bet you’ll think twice about talking like one.

  • €vil Je$ture

    That’s how you show dominance over a dog.

  • Riana van Zyl

    How on earth can you say it was fake? The poor dog was petrified and even cried. That was certainly not staged.

    • MyKinKStar

      READ the FULL Story Please . . .

      • Riana van Zyl

        MyKinKStar, I fail to understand why you are trying to protect this horrible creature, I have read the FULL story.

        The Police became involved and removed the pup from this creature. It is a fact that the dog had a swollen face, tooth missing and was suffering from concussion. The Police thought it was serious enough to send this creature to a mental institution for assessment.

        What is there any further to read?

        The only thing that is false, is the photos of Hüsch beaten-up face. That was photoshopped and never happended.

  • CommonSense

    I’m glad they were able to rescue the dog and catch the sicko. The scum should have the crap beat out of him, just like he beat the dog.
    I’m also happy to see how many people are outraged by this animal abuse. I hope all of you are aware that this kind of abuse, and far worse, is committed every day to land animals raised for food. A total of 60 billion annually. So if you’re upset by this kind of abuse then I hope you’re vegan. It’s the only way to be consistent with your views.

  • letmepicyou

    I have a feeling 98% of the people spouting off about kicking this guy’s ass…couldn’t. Not excusing the guy, just not a fan of keyboard courage, either. If you’re gonna whoop someone’s ass, do it then. Post about it afterwards.

    The picture may be Photoshop but i saw a video on the internet of two guys (one recording and the other one is brutally hitting this guy till he stops moving ) the poor guy is bleeding and the other one keeps kicking him and punching him when he’s not even moving ,I hate animal cruelty and he deserves the same but not the dead…he didn’t kill the dog and that wasn’t the right way to punish him for what he did and now I wanna know what happened with the guy in the video is he in jail or did he die? Seriously the video was disturbing and he was gravely injured
