MAY 2016 – UK
Q. What is the sentence in the UK for taping a dog’s muzzle and keeping him on a balcony?
A. Banned from owning animals for five years
Justice?! It is a complete travesty and it is atrocities like this that really gets my goat. Martin Boyle, aged 32 – should never be allowed near another animal again!
The awful thing is, Martin Boyle is not the only one carrying out this type of barbaric cruelty.
June 2015 – USA
North Charleston police arrested 41-year-old William Leonard Dodson on a felony charge of animal torture. His bail was set at $50,000.
April 2016 – Canada
Finally, justice was done for an 8-year-old Patterdale known as Justice.
Michael Earl Hill was given $60 by a family to take Justice to a shelter as their new-born daughter was allergic to him. Instead Hill decided to strap Justice’s muzzle, neck and paws then dump him in a field to die. Fortunately he found by a guy out for a walk with his two dogs.
Hill was sentenced for two years in a federal penitentiary and banned from living with animals for 25 years. That is more like it! The UK should seriously look at Justice’s case because this is the type of sentencing that we should be dishing out over here not mamby pambying around with a flimsy 5 year ban from owning animals.
