Baylor Football has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. In May, their school president and head football coach were both fired after team officials failed to report complaints of allegations of violence against women by football players.
Now, wide receiver Ishmael Zamora is in hot water after a video surfaced of him violently beating a dog with a belt.

In late June, a video of Ishmael Zamora, a wide receiver for the Bears, was shared on another Baylor player’s Snapchat. The video shows Zamora abusing his dog.
Viewers can hear Zamora’s dog yelp as Zamora hits the dog with a belt. The player then kicks, yells and curses at the dog.

Baylor seems to not have learned from it’s past controversies as they have still yet to punish Zamora even though they know about this video in July.
Baylor coach Jim Grobe told the Waco Tribune-Herald that wide receiver Ishmael Zamora, captured on video whipping a dog in June, will be disciplined but will continue to practice with the Bears’ football team.
