Tell Baylor University to take football player who beat his dog off the field

This petition had 158,467 supporters

As reported in national and local outlets, a wide receiver on the Baylor University football team was caught on camera viciously whipping his dog. Ishmael Zamora was shown via a Snapchat video in June to be whipping his Rottweiler with a belt, eventually kicking the poor creature as it yelps in pain. Zamora’s excuses his actions by saying he lost his temper while house training the dog.

There can be no tolerance for animal abuse. We call upon the President of Baylor University, David E. Garland, and Jim Grobe, the Head Football Coach, to remove Ishmael Zamora from the team.

While we have no idea if this was an isolated incident, or a pattern we merely are getting a glimpse into, Ishmael Zamora’s actions are troubling. The police have already charged Zamora with a misdemeanor that could come with a $500 fine. Baylor University must show they take the misconduct of their players seriously, especially when it comes to harming another living being. Someone who would beat an animal for having an accident in the house has no place in sports, let alone a Division 1 team in the Big 12 Conference.
