Waco, Texas police have charged a Baylor University football player with misdemeanor molestation of an animal after a graphic video posted to Snapchat and later shared with police showed him brutally beating his dog.
Sophomore wide receiver Ishmael Zamora was ticketed after an investigation showed Zamora whipped his dog with a belt and kicked the animal after it defecated on the floor of his residence, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton told KWTX.
Investigators found the dog was uninjured and have released the animal into the care of Zamora’s mother.
Former Baylor student Shelby Ball saw the video on Snapchat and went to police and to the McLennan County Humane Society explaining, “Dogs can’t speak for themselves… I felt like something needed to be done.”
Members of the Baylor Athletics staff were already aware of the incident and report that Zamora will be disciplined with suspension from playing in three football games. In addition, he will have to complete 40 hours of community service, undergo counseling and relinquish his dog to a an “animal-friendly home” as additional terms of his punishment. He will be able to practice with the team while he’s suspended so long as he meets those conditions.
“Ishmael’s behavior toward his dog is disheartening, and is not condoned,” said Baylor athletic director Mack Rhoades. “We believe with proper counseling and training Ishmael can learn from this and I expect that of him. I’ve conveyed to him my expectation that his actions and his service will illustrate his commitment to change.”
Zamora insists he was only trying to discipline his dog. In a statement released to KXXV, he said, “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 Class C misdemeanor and given a citation that could cost up to $500.

This disgusting excuse is not acceptable, I hope some day this dumb piece of shit has his legs broke, has those that he cares for shit all over him and he dies a slow painful death! May he rot in hell!!!!
What a waste of human flesh. Cry sorry now you got caught and the CLASSES you are being forced to take for “anger management” (cough) will not unlearn what you are obviously comfortable doing. Beating up something smaller and defenseless against you. So how about he gets to be turned loose in general population of the jail he SHOULD go to this for this. And let all the big tall beefy built pissed off inmates have their way with him. For a year. Then they can all say sorry and take a class too.
GO TO THE Games. chant his name and “dog beater” Let him know everyone knows. Friggn school shouldnt be allowing him to play. He’s a damn criminal!
You’re not wrong. But there sure is something wrong in this chumps head.
He should be kicked off the team….he probably plans a future with NFL and that needs to be stopped now. We went thru the Michael Vick fiasco…no more football for animal abusers! !
Damn straight! POS!!!
Beat hm like that. That dog needs to be taken away from him!! Don’t get me started. F ing idiot!!! Don’t let him represent your team!!
He needs to be banned from owning or being around animals forever and he needs to be charged with animal cruelty and kicked off the team. I hope someone cripples the POS during a game. Snap his neck!
His mother must be so proud ofcths POS she has raised. Why is the dog going to her? That dog should never have to see that family again. What a POS mother and son.
Dirty scum of the earth
Let me have him for 10 minutes, I’ll show the scumbag how it feels
Shame on Baylor for keeping him on the team.
He should have been kicked off the team, expelled, and ARRESTED. He would have been in more trouble if that had been a kid he was beating the crap of, right?? Would love to see him tied to a truck bumper by those dirty looking knots on his head and dragged for a few miles…..pos.
I PRAY EVERYDAY THAT GOD SENDS A PLAGUE SO HORRIBLE THAT IT WIPES OUT EVERYONE THAT EATS, TORTURERS, RAPES, STARVES TO DEATH, MAIMS, SKINS ALIVE, CATS, DOGS, OR ANY ANIMAL! PEOPLE INVOLVED WITH DOG FIGHTING! PEOPLE WHO TORTURE ANIMALS AND SELL FOR GREED! THOSE THAT HAVE NO COMPASSION FOR ANIMALS, AND THOSE THAT KILL FOR EVIL REASONS! IN JESUS NAME I PRAY!
This ASSHOLE, who cares if he’s a football player put his ASS IN JAIL…5-10 yrs and as far as Mommy Dearest taking the poor sweet soul, NO, NO, not a good idea, she’s probably just like her son… He posted this on the internet what a total ASSHOLE, CHRISTIAN,HELL NO ! Does anyone remember what Dog is spelled backward?? GOD…People…WOW, between KARMA AND THE BIG GUY, you’re SCRRWED !! But JAIL WOULD BE GOOD TOO ! Our NATUONAL LAWS NEED TO CHANHE ON ANIMAL ABUSE…
Disgusting idiot. No way i would go see a baylor game with him playing.
I could tell, that dog was used to being beat.I am sure being beat was a common occurrence in that poor dogs life !Why give the dog to his mother ? She was the one who created this monster,low life,P.O.S.garbage. You will BURN IN HELL !!
As a volunteer for a Humane Society, I am in shock that a Christian University would keep a known animal abuser on a team! Abusing an animal, one of God’s creatures, without a voice being abused on camera. What does the university not see! Baylor Fan Club please speak out and not tolerate!
Come to me BOY and let me give you a taste of what that dog is going through. PATHETIC!
Poor poor dog 🙁 The dog needs rehoming to someone that will love it and actually let it out/walk it so it can defecate, This guy needs banning from keeping animals. The university and the authorities obviously think this kind of abuse is acceptable. Shame on them. I don’t care who you are, this is NOT acceptable. I can only hope that opposing football teams remember what he has done and take the opportunity to knock the stuffing out of him
That piece of crap needs to be kicked off the team and fined heavy. Dog should be given to someone who would love him and treat him well.Woo
This abuse should not go unpunished, I pray they took the poor dog somewhere safe. No animal should have to live like that. IN FEAR!
Released to the family? Where do you think he learned that behavior from? Animals have accidents, and if you are not ok with that, please do not bring a pet home.
Lock the pieces of shit up and hope some inmate does the same to him-plus fine the Baylor for taking the correct action
This will give him a free pass and he will do it again and think that all he will get is a slap on the wrist. Why do Football players get off free and easy????????? A ticket that his Momma will pay and she has the dog??? Doesn’t he live with him Mommy? Sorry but that dog needs a new home away from the reminder of abuse. This kid needs a lesson taught to him. He shouldn’t be able to play football.
I hope the football player gets jailed so sad for the dog to be battered jail the scumbag
Dog released to the family! Are you kidding? Ticketed and not arrested and charged? Of course he remains on the football team, he’s football player. Why do athletes get a free pass? I am so angry!
I wish these poor abused dogs would at least jump up and bite the nose off the abuser. Taste of their own medicine.
