Tough Sentence Imposed for Animal Cruelty
October 26, 2007
I was so happy to read this story. The judge, a dog owner, sentenced a guy who threw his girlfriend’s 10-week old puppy off a third floor balcony during a fight, to five years in prison, suspended to three years with two years of probation.
Can I just say whoohoo?! It’s about time this crime was taken seriously by the courts.
Unfortunately, the little pup was severely injured and had to be euthanized. (Please don’t tell me his girlfriend is dumb enough to stay with him after that.)
In addition to being absolutely horrendous, there is a connection between animal cruelty and abuse and other crimes.
