Thank you, Judge White! One less abuser out there AND probably some other animals will be safer now. Maybe even a person or two, as well.

This is indeed good news and sadly rare but good news all the same. What a horrible time for Bubba and his friends who did not make it. Personally I'd rather see the man dead but you can't have everything. Let's hope he gets the fullest experience out of prison and not in a good way. Thank goodness Bubba was found and I hope he is spoiled rotten for the rest of his life.

15 years is a good harsh sentence for what he did. I wish ALL animal abuse cases have the same judgement.
Ta Mike.

This is good news. An animal abuser sentenced for his crimes. I'm just sad this poor pup had to endure such pain to capture his abuser.

I am so happy that this psycho got his karma. Hopefully this sadistic, despicable so called humans incarceration is only the beginning of what he so deserves.
