they should not be allowed to have animals for the rest of their lives!

If someone finds themselves in circumstances where they cannot care for an animal, then surrender it. Don't let it be neglected from August to October!

Total scumbags. Lets hope the dog is safely rehomed and is being loved as he should be.

Makes me so angry when I read these stories. I don't know how these scum bags sleep at night knowing what they did, but these types couldn't care less about anyone except themselves.

At least the creepo owners got caught and got some punishment too bad it wasn't even harsher . I hope that the poor dog gets a new home with someone who will love and take good care of her.

Maybe the community order which insists that he does 180 hours of unpaid work will make a real impact. Maybe he can work somewhere where he can learn some compassion.

I think they should be put on a force diet, so they can get a small sample of what that poor fur baby went through. I'm sure some lawyer defending them would say the forced diet would be "cruel and unusual punishment" ironic would that be?

My mind spins when I read this kind of neglect and disregard for anothers pain. I have to say at least they got caught and somewhat punished. So many get away with this kind of cruelty. Ty Simone.

Noted. It just boggles my mind the there are such people in this world . i think people like this are just taking up space . i cannot understand any point or purpose to thi mistreament of this dog . And am so proud the juge gave them such a stiff punishment. I wish that the state of mississippi could get so lucky whenever the laws are finally changed here.
