While working security during the 2013 annual Maryland State Fair held in Timonium, Md for 13 days (21st Aug--2nd Sept), I observed while walking thru a building used to hold cattle & other animals, an individual whom was jabbing at a young Alpacka (resembles a miniture Llama) with what looked like part of a 2X4 that was about a yard in length. He looked to be in his mid twentys & immediantly, upon speaking w/ him, knew him to be under the influence of drugs &/or alcohol. He explained he was "merly" having fun w/ the animal which was obviously in distress. I had no idea whom or where the owners were but was glad I happened upon the animal in time to assist it. Talking hold of his arm, I advised him I had every intention of turning him over to the police, this in turn caused a violent reaction of trying to escape. Upon realizing he was going to attempt to hit me I wrapped my arms around him, picked him up, & body slammed him to the ground that was abundent w/ cow feces. I dragged his funky body through the feces while taking him to the nearest law enforcment I saw. The owners eventually came back from getting lunch, was informed, the officer was advised of his attempted battery on me, & the sorry sack of dung was arrested & takin to jail. Did I intentionally drag him thru the feces? I'll say this much, there was much fecal matter laying around waiting to be cleaned up by the yard hands (what a crappy job), & I guess if I worked a little harder at avoiding it, he wouldnt have recieved the crappy deal he got. But on a personal note, I feel he deserved gettin dragged thru the dung. ABUSERS BEWARE!
