    Just read an article about to men in the north who couldn't afford to pts one of their dogs so beat it with a hammer drove a nail through its skull and buried it alive....

    It was heard whimpering by a dog walker sadly it couldn't have survived its injuries and had to be pts

    The baskets got just 4 months in jail.....i really dispair with our justice system :(

    I won't post a link to the story as the images are just too upsetting

    The poor thing was 16 years,old.....
    Why didn't they at least hand it in to the RSPCA if they couldn't afford to put it down......its so upsetting that humans have no boundaries for how cruel we can be to not just animals but ourselves to

    Actually I don't think prison is the best punishment for people who pose little risk to others. Reserve it for those whose freedom is likely to lead to further crimes. Four months of free rent and cooked meals ... But don't think me soft, I could create a highly deterrent punishment for scrum like this and publicise it so widely that anyone other than a psychopath would think twice about harming an animal (or any other living creature) again.

    Quite local to me this one. Their houses have been burgled, people have broken in and life threats etc from a lot of people.

    Probably safer for them in jail depending on if people in there find out

    Yes, I read this albeit briefly as it was tough to read.

    This has NOTHING to do with not affording vet fees - what a ridiculous attempt at a defence in court given the barbarity and callousness of the act - utterly ridiculous! - and EVERYTHING to do with depravity and criminality. What they did reveals a very frightening inclination toward cruelty and malevolence. Bast@rds.

    I am glad these screwed up, depraved individuals got a custodial sentence but sentencing guidelines need to be reviewed. Sentences need to be increased and the courts should be applying them. More can be done. That poor poor dog.
