Police: Pair Left Roosters, Hens, Goats & Duck Inside Hot Van

MIAMI – (CBSMiami.com) – It sounded like the cries of a child coming from inside a parked van.

But Miami police say what they discovered were eight roosters, four guinea hens, four pigeons, four goats and one duck in distress inside a van left behind by two men in the parking lot of Northwest 37th Avenue and 7th Street Monday afternoon.

Police charged Raul Armenteros, 46, and James Arroyo, 44, with 22 counts of animal cruelty after police were dispatched to the area after passersby reported noises coming out of the van.

Inside, police found four goats “tied up inside plastic bags” with one of the goats dead. About 45 minutes later, Armenteros and Arroyo arrived on the scene and both said they owned the animals.

Instead, police arrested the two men and both were held in Miami-Dade County Jail on $110,000 bond each.

“All the animals in the van appeared to be in distress and lacking of water,” police wrote in their report.

Animal control responded and recovered the animals.

    I’m going to guess that those aanimals were going to be used for santeria sacrifices. I hope the law does its job here to the fullest extent. How barbaric. But look at what we’re dealing with.

    • LIttlesha

      Agreed!!! Human trash at its finest. Repulsive

  • Lyn

    These two turds need to be left in that van for a week without food or water! And no cleaning prior to leaving them in there. That is being nice! they should never be allowed to touch or own another animal as long as they live…hopefully not much longer. they’d probably do the same thing with children!

    Noah’s Ark it was not.

    The guy on the right does porn!

    • Harvey Sooten

      Dude, that’s Ramon from all the Bangbus movies HILLARIOUS. Guy is always in a van

      • Stevie

        I know! He should be beaten with a pipe for what he did too.

    • reinfeld

      I thought I recognized him!

    • Robin

      So you watch the men in porn?

  • sickoffools

    Anyone who treats animals poorly and is cruel should be dealt with the same way. For all those who claim to be God loving are hypocrites when it comes to Gods creatures for they’re not here on Earth for people to abuse. I do hate evil #%^ ‘s like this. This is blatant cruelty, a disregard for a living creature. Evil !!

  • dale

    Those guys are beneath contempt. The humane thing to do with those critters would have been to kill, cook and eat them.

    • bevoe

      Hey man, animals are innocent. Babies aren’t.

  • JuanValdez

    You can still abort a human fetus, but leave a chicken in the van and you’re in biiiiiig trouble!

    • coppersmom

      you bet!! a human fetus and a chicken fetus…but not a human being or a chicken..difference? sentience.

      • Vee Kay

        Not in their case. Where did they exhibit sentience?

    • LIttlesha

      Human babies don’t suffer with abortion. Animals do. So get off of your soapbox…it’s already been stampeded.

  • Myipismyname

    It is truly the end of times.
    The time we live in is similar to that of Sodom and ghomera, time of Noah, with some more twist and new type of human behavior that the books in the bible warn us about.

    Soon we will be told killing animals to eat is a criminal act but aborting a baby is ok.

    Keep doing what you are doing. Jesus Christ was right. The bible was right. The book of Enoch was also right.

    Nothing man does can change this new system we are gearing towards.
    The book of Daniel says it is not by the hands of man that this new world philosophy order will be stopped from fulfilling the devils dream but by the hand of Jesus Christ.

    Yeap, confusion confusion and more confusion will fill earth.

    I am in peace. May God of Jesus Christ be among those who trust him.

    isnt diversity so grand..this is what happens when the culture gets watered down ….

  • Eddie

    That’s santeria for you.

  • Aveman

    Nothing unusual in Miami…ever heard of santeria rituals? Animals sacrificed during santeria ceremonies to the gods and saints. They probably stopped for lunch at Kentucky Fried… HA!


    I wish I were in charge of their fate. I’d have them skinned alive and sprayed with vinegar –so they would understand the meaning of discomfort.

    • LIttlesha

      Love it!!!!

  • Pauli

    They look like Obama.

  • deroy

    what was Obama doing in Miami?
    That Raul guy could get a job as an Obama impersonator.

  • Oberon123

    What Santeria does to animals is just as disgusting as kosher and halal slaughter. It should all be stopped. Freedom of religion gives you the right to believe anything you want. It does NOT give you the right to do anything you want.

  • Robin

    Raul can see his ears without a mirror.

  • Tyrell

    They should be tied up, put in plastic bags and left in a hot van. These savages from different cultures have no regard for animal suffering. We can thank our government for allowing this garbage into the nation.

  • DJ

    I bet they don’t even understand what all the fuss is about. In their culture much worse than that is perfectly acceptable. One more example of why Miami is a cesspool of third world sausage

  • Big Jeff

    I’m going to go eat some cows while I reflect on how awful these people are! Then I’m going to tell homeless people to get jobs!
