A man who was filmed kicking his dog in the street has been banned from keeping dogs.

Javel Williams, 38, was caught kicking his Cane Corso dog Nala near his home in Ainger Road, Primrose Hill, sometime between November 2022 and July 2023.

In one video, a man could be seen kicking a dog in the street, and its yelps of pain could be heard. Another showed a fearful dog running away from a man.

RSPCA Inspector Shahnaz Ahmad said that although the video of the beating was taken at a distance, she believed it showed the defendant and Nala.

Several members of the public also provided witness statements saying they had seen Williams being abusive to Nala.

The inspector had visited Williams’ flat at Ainger Road in November 2022 following a report, and provided advice about the welfare of the dog and her six puppies.

The RSPCA revisited the defendant’s flat on May 4 last year when Williams denied ever hitting Nala.

After viewing the two videos and collecting witness statements, Inspector Ahmad visited the flat again with a police officer on July 10.

Williams said he had moved Nala to a friend’s house, from where the dog was seized and taken into the care of the RSPCA.

A vet who examined Nala said the dog was suffering from around 30% lameness in her left hind leg and there was also a 9cm-long scar on her left tibia.

After studying the video clips, the vet said: “The videos and witness statements evidence that Nala was subject to physical and psychological abuse.

“Following these acts of violence, I estimate that Nala suffered for a period of at least six to eight weeks.”

The court was told that during March and April of 2023 Williams had signed over two puppies into the care of the RSPCA. Both needed hospital treatment.

It was also decided that one of the dogs, who was emaciated and had sustained a broken pelvic bone, was in such poor health that it had to be put down.

In mitigation, the court heard that Williams has learning and developmental difficulties, which were outlined in a pre-sentence report.

As well as a six year animal ban, the defendant was given a six-month conditional discharge.

The court also made a deprivation order in respect of Nala, who will now be rehomed by the RSPCA.

Javel pleaded guilty to two offences under the Animal Welfare Act 2006, one of them that he caused unnecessary suffering to a Cane Corso dog called Nala by inflicting physical violence and intimidatory behaviour on her.

The defendant appeared for sentencing at Southwark Crown Court on June 14.
