Baylor WR Ishmael Zamora Caught Beating Dog on Video
The Baylor University football program has a whole new set of bad PR on its hands.
Video of Bears wide receiver Ishmael Zamora hitting and kicking his dog has been shared by KXXV-TV. Zamora hit the animal with a belt.
The clip, which was shared on a teammate's Snapchat in June, was seen by a former student, who told police.
Zamora released a statement to KXXV:
I lost my temper trying to discipline him. I’ve been through training with a dog trainer to help me learn new potty training tips."
Zamora was charged with a misdemeanor and received a citation of up to $500.
This episode is the latest controversy for Baylor's athletic department. This past spring, head football coach Art Briles was relieved of his duties in the wake of a sexual assault allegations against the school.
