According to Stewart Mandel of Fox Sports, Baylor wide receiver Ishmael Zamora has been suspended for the Bears’ first three games.

This, of course, is in response to Zamora being caught on video physically abusing a dog; it is a disturbing video to say the least. In the video, Zamora is seeing whipping his dog with a belt and also kicking the animal.

The video, which was recorded in June, came to light a few weeks which led to Zamora being charged with a Class C misdemeanor and given a citation.

Per Nick Moyle of MySanAntonio.com, Zamora will also have perform 40 hours of community service that will “teach him kindness and respect toward animals” as punishment for his violent abuse of a dog.

“Our football program does not condone this behavior by anyone. We are deeply saddened by it and have worked together with the University to hold Ishmael accountable for his actions,” Bears head coach Jim Grobe said in a statement.

Zamora, a 6’4”, 220-pound sophomore wide receiver from Houston, Texas is coming off a freshman season in which he recorded nine receptions for 132 yards and two touchdowns.

Suffice to say the timing off this is awful, as Baylor has had to deal with a scandal in which the school ineffectively handled sexual assaults and domestic violence cases. That, of course, led to ex-coach Art Briles losing his job.

Baylor will now try to move forward as it opens its 2016 season this Friday when it hosts Northwestern State.
