CEDAR RAPIDS – An Iowa man was arrested after allegedly slamming a puppy to the ground, breaking multiple bones.

A cooperative investigation by Cedar Rapids Animal Care and Control with the Cedar Rapids Police Department has resulted in a suspect being arrested for Animal Abuse Causing Serious Injury, an aggravated misdemeanor. With the assistance of tips received from the public and the ongoing investigation, officers arrested 22-year-old Jayden Devontre Cliff of Cedar Rapids.

Cliff is accused of grabbing a 12-week old Golden Retriever by the skin on the back of the neck and throwing it on the ground, then kicking the puppy with his foot which caused the puppy to be forced out of the room it was in. This occurred after the puppy had defecated on a bed and continued to defecate on the floor after being thrown to the ground. The Golden Retriever puppy sustained serious injuries, including fractures.

Cedar Rapids Animal Care and Control sought the public’s assistance in the case on Thursday, April 1, 2021. That morning, Critter Crusaders of Cedar Rapids received a phone call from a concerned individual who was in possession of an injured 12-week old male Golden Retriever. The individual advised that they took possession of the puppy after a teenager left the animal at their house. The puppy had two fractured legs, including a right rear femur fracture and a right front metacarpal fracture. The non-profit Critter Crusaders of Cedar Rapids has facilitated surgical care for the puppy and named the puppy Kimble. He has been hospitalized since April 1, 2021 and had surgery. He has a badly broken femur and many bones fractured in his metacarpals.

Cliff was transported to the Linn County Correctional Center.

    He seems to be one of those less fortunate ones, show some compassion. We should help him get cleaned up so he can get a good, steady job.
    Let’s start by using the belt sander to remove the tats on his neck and face.

    This piece of shit with the fake tats can’t even grow a mustache. Drop him from a five story building onto concrete and then let him lay there…..for as long as it takes.

    It’s a 100% sure bet that everybody named Jayden Devontre is going to end up in prison. I thought everybody knew that by now.

    look at him you can tell he’s a tough guy. If I was his Father Id take him to the wood shed and spank his ass with my belt till he deficated all over himself . Then give him some soap and water and steel wool make him wash off them tatoo that were done with marking pens he should go to bed at night instead of tweekin his drawing skills . I bet his family is proud of him.. Jesus please help this kid Amen
