This is a disgrace. He should be in jail and the judge should be taken to task for being so lenient.

The Data Protection Act will make this sort of article the only way anybody has of knowing of any ban imposed on him regarding future ownership and render such a ban useless.

He should be incarcerated for what he has done and at the same time be given some sort of psychological treatment to try to stop him acting the same way in the future - mark my words, he'll do it again! This man is sick in the head.

Animals deserve much better protection from such people.

I have commented on the local newspaper site and I urge others to do the same. Press the visit site button on this page to register with the paper and comment there.

I've also spread the news far and wide. I hope others here will do the same.

Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
