A takeaway driver killed a rabbit by hurling it from a 40ft balcony - and smashed another against a brick wall, a court heard.

RSPCA inspectors found the second rabbit with a broken spine in the home of Bilal Yilmaz, 23, in Hull, East Yorkshire - after it had been dragging itself around the home using just its front legs.

The animal was so badly injured that its back legs had started decomposing while it was still alive, Hull Magistrates’ Court was told.

Inspectors said the decomposing flesh smell was so strong on the living rabbit that they had to move away to avoid being physically sick before rescuing the animal, when it was put to sleep.

Yilmaz - who will soon be sentenced for animal cruelty and also for assaulting his pregnant wife - laughed at police when they asked if he had hurt the animals, the court was told.

One of the pets had been unable to walk for more than month due to a broken spine and femur after being thrown against the wall - and had not been taken for any treatment.

RSPCA inspector Hannah Bryer said: ‘This is an horrific case. Inflicting violence on any animal is completely unacceptable. It was an appalling, callous and cruel act.

‘This young rabbit would have been powerless to do anything to protect itself and she was then left untreated for weeks before she was found.

'Doing this job, I have seen some horrendous consequences of cruelty and neglect - but this one will stick in my mind for a long time to come.

‘My heart sinks when I think about the immense suffering this rabbit will have endured at the hands of her owner - the very person who was meant to care for her.’

Philip Brown, prosecuting, said: ‘The rabbit was emaciated and underweight. It was unable to move its hind legs and could only move by dragging itself along on its front legs.

‘Its flesh was decomposing and there was a strong, foul smell. The inspector felt physically sick and had to move away before she recovered it.’

'Doing this job, I have seen some horrendous consequences of cruelty and neglect - but this one will stick in my mind for a long time to come'

RSPCA inspector Hannah Bryer

Yilmaz claimed to have only ‘flicked’ the rabbit against a wall inside the flat after it bit him. However, a vet concluded the rabbit must have been forcefully thrown to inflict the injuries.

Mr Brown said: ‘The vet said he was horrified by the degree of suffering this animal endured, especially considering the owner had inflicted the injuries and didn’t make any attempt to alleviate the suffering.

'This was a deliberate act of cruelty by the defendant, which resulted in the animal suffering for a prolonged period of time.’

Aside from the animal cruelty, Yilmaz was also said to have tried to drag his wife - also his cousin - into a car to convince her to have an abortion and also assaulted a toddler. He admitted ‘accidentally’ slapping a toddler across the face and will remain in custody until he is sentenced later this month.

Sadly, the sentences will not be long enough as life isn't given to animal abusers.

Bilal Yilmaz is a Turkish name and I guess that you can deduce his religious origin. That he abused his wife too is of no surprise to me as that is usually the conduct of animal abusers. The Koran also teaches that women can be beaten!

It is a crying shame that people like this, who are identified as serial abusers, who will only get worse since this kind is not amenable to treatment, being psychopaths, could be sentenced to life without parole, NOW, before this subhuman is allowed to hurt anyone or anything else. Because he will. And the people should have the right to have such as he off the streets permanently.

Once again this incident reaffirms that if they abuse animals, they will eventually turn to humans. I hope this less than human individual has a need for compassion and care due to an injury and have it denied him. Lets see him laugh about abuse then.

All the things people have said to be done to this sub human genetically modified freak and then magnify them 1000 fold. He deserves to be tortured to death. Pity it can only be done once though.

I just read the Daily Mail article - good to see him identified by his photo. He should be tied to a wrecking ball and smashed against a building due for demolition.

Another disgusting piece of low-life scum. He's already assaulted his wife and a toddler so it'll be NO surprise when he actually kills someone. Perhaps its time the justice system grew a backbone and started giving punishments that fit the crime.

Those poor animals. What an evil and disgusting creep!
I hope his wife is smart enough and takes off before he is doing the same to his unborn child. Those evil people ruin their children and their wives for the rest of their lives.

I agree with others. This is a coward and doesn't deserve to live around humans or animals. May a vigilante do the same to him as he did to these rabbits. I'm sure these aren't the first animals this sick person has harmed. His wife needs to be held responsible for not reporting this abuse.

This prick should be sent to jail for a long time. What's really frightening is that he's reproduced...with a cousin, no less. What are the chances this kid will be normal?

This is not person, This is not a human. This is something lower in the chain than the worst snake. This thing should be incarcerated after some "inhumane" treatement. Don't forget. No treatment for the injuries acquired, just thrown in and the key thrown away.

I can't read this kind of thing without going ballistic. I can only suggest that these horrors against innocent animals grows worse and worse because there are so many deranged, sick human monsters out there. Worst of all, the law and/or justice system is slow to do to them what they deserve. They, the perpetrators, are sub-human and shouldn't even be running loose in society. Hideous dregs of so-called humans..

He is a lowlife scum to do this to these innocent rabbits. This sick POS needs to be put away for a long time, he has a anger problem and doesn't need to be walking around sane people. What those poor babies went through makes me sick and wish we could do an eye for an eye.

what happened to the bunny? Was it euthanized? What exactly does it take for a piece of s-t like him to be locked up? Talk about a walking human bomb!

you have to wonder what sort of upbringing and education this yilmaz enjoyed (?) which have enabled him to act with such egregious violence towards his wife, a toddler and helpless animals. he certainly sounds psychotic now, which may yet protect him from the force of the law.

What a derelict POS. I hope he rots in hell. Drop his sorry rear end from a building, let him drag himself around, no food or water & no medical care. Sick twisted jerk.

Hope this disgusting piece of filth gets prison time for his cruelty to animals not to mention his wife and child. He is a bomb just waiting to go off and hope the courts realize that.

This is probably the worst case of animal abuse that I've ever heard of! Rabbits ARE at the mercy of their owners and self-defense is not one of their strengths. Wild rabbits, however, can escape into a bush or burrow but domesticated rabbits don't have this option. All they can do is hope that they receive love and the proper care from their owner. This specific incident is done and there is now way to go back in time to prevent it. They say that Bilal Yilmaz will be serving jail time. This is good, but for how long? And when he gets out, will he commit these horrible atrocities again? And having him pay a fine won't solve this problem - it's just a slap on the hand. When this guy gets out of jail (which I feel he should serve a life sentence) HE NEEDS TO GO TO REHAB!!!!! If he doesn't get rehabilition for his anger problem, he will continue these horrible acts of abuse. It's simple - get this loser on the road to recovery when he gets out of jail, or keep him in jail for life!
