ACT sentencing gone to the dogs

By weeziepops - 3 December 2009 24

I was disappointed to see yet another piss-weak “sentence” in relation to a conviction for animal cruelty. 

The CT reports (here: man-deserved-harsher-penalty-rspca) that Saron Youn has got off with community service and a good behaviour bond for neglecting his two dogs to a point where they were attempting to eat dirt in order to survive.  

Mr Youn should be banned from owning another pet and given a custodial sentence.  The idea that he should spend those hours of community service in an animal shelter is an insult to the staff and volunteers who work there.

What’s Your opinion?

I am sorry for Mr Youn’s circumstances, but also feel he has failed the creatures in his care in the worst possible way.

No – there is no excuse for this. None. He could have taken the dogs to the pound, where at least they would have had a daily walk and a decent feed. He could have asked a decent human being to care for his dogs. It would have been kinder to put the dogs down at the vet, rather than let them suffer like this. There is no excuse for this – NONE. There are no other sides to this story.

Looking after animals that you’re responsible for isn’t negotiable and using some piss-poor excuse like ‘relationship problems’ is simply pathetic. The courts will do what the courts will do, but the world now knows what a complete and utter douche-bag Saron Youn really is.

You are obviously a dear friend of his – why didn’t you check on the dogs? Idiot.

Maybe asking a friend who isn’t an incompetent imbecile to feed the dogs would’ve been a better option then. Taking the dogs to professionals to look after would’ve been a better option.


SmatrerThanYou and qwerty00, obviously everybody who commented did not know the other side of the story and gave their opinions on the situation and story that weeziepops found in the CT. How were they meant to know? Plus, “Mr. Youn” should of checked that the person incharge of the dogs was feeding them.
