What makes a young man do this to an animal? I haven't watched the video as I know it will upset me too much and I've read some pretty horrible reports of what he did elsewhere http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-somerset-39718723 For those who don't want to click the link A farmhand who admitted kicking and punching cows and calves at a Somerset farm has been sentenced. Owen Nichol, of Buckland Road, Taunton, was given a 12-week prison sentence, suspended for one year, at Taunton Magistrates' Court. The 18-year-old was also banned from keeping or working with animals for two years. His actions were filmed by the campaign group Animal Equality at Pyrland Farm in Taunton last December. Chairman of the magistrates Dr Peter Reed told Nichol his behaviour was "absolutely unacceptable". The RSPCA launched an investigation after being shown the footage. The farm's owner said he was appalled when he saw it and the worker had since been dismissed. Nichol pleaded guilty to the charges under the Animal Welfare Act at a hearing earlier this month. I just don't understand why anyone would take pleasure from doing this.
