Noted. Excellent news! The only problem is the 25 years being suspended. At least he can't have an animal for 30 years. Thanks so much, June.

I'm glad justice has prevailed in this case, although it doesn't change the past.

Bravo Montana! This is the way it should be done. Then the rest of the evils would wake up to this roar. Otherwise the Greedy people who are abusing and inflicting poor innocent animals for the purpose of making a quick buck and a dollar would never stop this horrendous practice. At the end the results has been also the euthnasation for Millions of innocent animals. Put this man into the hell hole the same way as he did to these beautiful dogs suffer. In Truth & Infact Need to throw the keys away for the rest of his life !!! not only for a shorter period of 30 yrs. He is a outright Evil man.
