This is Yurianne "Elvin" Hervis Gonzalez who was booked into jail late Tuesday, August 5, 2014 on 30 counts of animal cruelty and 1 charge of grand theft when he was caught with a stolen truck to flee to Texas. Gonzalez, 33, the one that killed the most, made his first appearance in court Wednesday, August 6, 2014, where he was ordered bail at $80,000.

The trio, Yurianne "Elvin" Hervis Gonzalez, Raul "Freaky" Fernandez, and Yonisley "Pipe" Garcia, was tracked down as part of Operation Noche Buena, a five month-long undercover investigation in which Animal Recovery Mission (ARM) investigators collected evidence on the illegal slaughter farm which killed animals, chickens- goats, pigs, horses, in the most horrific ways, such as: skinning, butchering, stabbing, hammering, shooting, and boiling animals alive.

At an illegal slaughterhouse in West Miami-Dade, pigs, goats, hogs, and chickens were shot, stabbed, beaten with sledgehammers and gutted and boiled while alive, authorities said Wednesday. Authorities in recent years have busted offenders for illegally butchering and selling horse meat, pigs and chickens. Horses legs would be cut off while alive and then slaughtered to sell the meat in the black market.  Raul "Freaky" Fernandez, the alleged operator of the slaughter on the 17700 Northwest 137th Avenue, was jailed on Wednesday afternoon. He is currently on probation on a conviction for marijuana trafficking.

It’s monstrous. These operators are savages with no sense of humanity,” said Couto.

The arrest warrant spilled over with grisly details: “On video surveillance, pigs can be seen being dragged, hook-mouthed through the jaw, at distances of approximately 150 feet, all while the animals remain alive.”

In one example, an undercover operative agreed to buy a boar, which was then shot with a “small-caliber” rifle. The animal did not die, but instead thrashed and kicked for three minutes as it was dragged over 150 feet, the warrant said. In another example, a pig – after being hammered and stabbed – was thrown into a vat of boiling water while still showing signs of life, the warrant said. An employee used a shovel to hold the pig under water, police said.  They were skinning, butchering, stabbing, hammering, shooting, and boiling animals alive.

Richard Couto said the slaughter of the animals was so violent and inhumane that four of his undercover operators quit after the probe.

ANYONE THAT MISTREATS ANIMALS WILL MISTREAT HUMANS.  WHEN WILL PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT?  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwJIvqp4f3s ;
