Thanks for sharing. Glad to see sentencing of 2 years instead of just a fine...

At least in this case he is banned from ever having a dog again. Thanks, Simone.

So twentyeight months in jail and banned from ever owning animals is supposed to be justice for a puppy who was beat to death with a golf club?

Thanks Simone, when I saw the read the headline I was quite impressed by 28 months, but then I read the story and would like to remind people in New Zealand that three years is 36 months, not 28. Anyway, hope the people get the message it's not okay to hurt animals.

For starters, he should have done to him what he did to the dog, as part of his punishment. We have lot of dog attacks in NZ, unfortunately its because of people like this. Dogs are like children, this behavior isnt instinctive, its learned through abuse they suffer.
Hopefully he will be treated as he treats dogs by his pairs, then he may learn.
