Glad to see this man has received such a sentence. I only wish it had been harsher, but he was prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Obviously, animal abuse laws need to be made much more stringent, but this is a step in the right direction. Sad that this kitten had to be euthanized ~ poor baby deserved better. Thanks for the story Johanna.
