From the petition author:

"She repeatedly burned and slashed her beautiful Springer Spaniel Stig, 31 times by holding it down. She also slashed her other Springer, Daniel to make it look like it was an intruder. The house looked like an abbatoir and Stig needed a four hour operation. This all happened in September and she was sentenced to 5 months in prison and a lifelong ban from keeping animals. The picture in the paper shows her with her husband and the dog. The poor thing still trusts her, I just don't know how. Both dogs have since been rehomed together. There is no mention of why she did it but the report says she was on antidepressants. They do not make you torture your pets and the woman is obviously very sick. Please sign this petition so that this woman's case is reassessed by the powers that be and she is incarcerated in a psychiatric hospital for a very long time."

To sit on a dog and slash and burn it, to know you were doing it is not insanity, but pure evil. This women is a menace and should be locked up away from society.To call this individual a women is a disgrace to all women... She is evil in the purest form.

I sincerely hope she meets an animal lover in prison and gets her just deserts in there. I don't normally condone violence but in this instance and with all animal abusers I will make exceptions. I am horrified that the justice system actually pays someone to defend worthless, evil, low-life scum like her, with all the pathetic, lame excuses being used time and time again, it wasn't me-it was the drink, the pills, the stress etc. Personally I think she should rot in jail for a very long time. Her neighbours had better watch out, next time it may be a baby, a small child or a vulnerable adult.

To do this to an animal...the woman must have been on some illegal psycho drug. If I was her husband, I'd take the kids and move as far away from this crazy bitch as possible. Or at least, sleep with my eyes open and a taser gun under the pillow, cause your next buddy!

Clearly this woman's blaming of anti-depressants for so horribly injuring her 'pets' is ludicrous. Holding down a dog and maiming it so terribly would no doubt cause the animal to cry out. So she just ignored it and carried on? She deserved a longer jail sentence as most animal abusers do, and without a doubt these dogs should be removed and placed in loving homes which I understand has happened, and to state the obvious, NEVER be allowed to own an animal again. A huge fine would have been good too - as in who paid for the operation? I think she is psychotic.

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma

When the sentence a person gets for harming an animal is equal to that of hurting a human (this woman got 5 months in jail, plus a lifelong ban on keeping animals and it's not enough), maybe the justice system will be doing something to protect animals.

I agree, Klaus. I would highly suspect that prior to her use or rather, MISUSE of medications, she may not have had any history of violent behavior, but the point is that now she does. She needs help and pyschiatric treatment, maybe in house and prevented from having contact with animals or small children who she could harm. I just don't agree that SHE needs to be killed or sent to jail for life. I bet once she's cleaned herself up from the medications, she could be very remoreseful, but that doesn't change what she could be capable of again, if she slips.
