A Florida dog-lover earned himself a cuffing last week after allegedly making the beast with two backs with a pit bull, this shock local report recounts.

A police spokeswoman said: "Several of the witnesses stated that they yelled at the suspect to stop, but he ignored their commands."

Cue intervention by law enforcement backed by animal welfare operatives, who searched Marsonek's gaff and found "a gun and with ammunition" plus "eight large pit bulls that were found on the property".
