Horrible news as it has come out that an 18 year old mother killed a puppy by hurling it at the floor, breaking its neck. This horrifying act has left the woman with a 5 year ban from keeping animals, a £200 fine and an 18 month supervision order to ensure nothing like it happens again.
The woman, who was reportedly overdue on her pregnancy, entered an argument with her boyfriend. After the heated row, the woman picked the three-month old puppy up from the settee where it apparently urinated, possibly after the loud argument. Then, in a fit of rage, the puppy was hurled ‘the length of a car’ at considerable force, enough to break its neck.The puppy then asphyxiated, after the sustained injuries proved too much for the poor dog to handle. The woman was said to cry in court after hearing how the dog died, supposedly upset that the animal had been killed, and wished the clock could be turned back.
Even though the woman has clearly expressed regret in this case, do you believe that the law is too lenient with people who abuse animals? Should we use a stronger punishment for those who abuse or torture animals? Do you believe that the woman in this case got off too lightly? Let us know in the comments.
