    People that hurt/abuse/kill animals either get a fine or hardly any time in prison. Its a joke. They should be given the same treatment they gave the animal IMO

    Only up to six months because she was such a nice person :mad:. She should have been charged with manslaughter as well.

    It was said she subjected the animals to "an environment that was detrimental to their well-being" and she knew or ought to have reasonably known what she had done

    Maybe she kept them in the house all the time it does not really say in detail I expect more will come out eventually

    I think its a complete tragedy that this ever happened and I don't think I saw any photos of the dogs but this is the first time any sort of cruelty has been mentioned .

    Probably cause she kept them shut up in the house or yard going stir crazy.:( Abuse created by neglecting the need for large, powerful, energetic dogs to be trained and exercised properly.
    The sentence is a joke but I think that is part of the problem with the law at the moment. Clearly saying its an offense if your Pitbull attacks someone on the street but any other breed is ok to attack at home is not working.....

    The face that the poor dogs environment was described as detrimental to their well being makes me think she most likely kept the dogs confined in crates or perhaps tethered.
