What a vile evil person, a real coward to hurt a defenceless animal

Is that a self-description by any chance? 😀

No, I’m only 6′ 2″, and I’m on the right side of the AMC fence. 🙂

Mr Evil. “But, he probably had a bad childhood/Mummy didn’t hug him enough/He’s had trouble forming relationships/He doesn’t have a job?”

Or he has a mental illness. One of the nasty ones.

You can twist it into a Judge slapping story if you like. Beating sick people is so macho.

The angry prison guy sounds hot.

And double shame on the idiots who didn’t care enough about the interests of those dogs to screen that abusive oxygen thief.

Doppelganger 8:01 pm 11 May 10

Remember the name, kids, should he ever come across your path. Shame on him AND his negligent parents.

“No doubt he’ll get a slap over the wrist by one of our wonderful magistrates” – Mr ‘Evil’, if you know why it’s likely to be a slap on the wrist and follow up your comment by doing nothing about it, it will CONTINUE to be a slap on the wrist. DO something about it, a forum post won’t get you anywhere. Or, like many of the people who fling this sort of comment around, is it just not worth your trouble?

No doubt he’ll get a slap over the wrist by one of our wonderful magistrates.

Hopefully he find himself in a cell with a angry 6′ 5″ tall 120kg bloke who hates animal cruelty.

I’m glad the police are starting to arrest these people and treat them like the abominations they are! Their only mistake on this occasion was letting him escape the scene at all, they wouldn’t do that if there was a dead human on site. Maybe he disposed of his swan-shooting gun? Now, we’ll never know!

“Letting him escape the scene”? I’ll take a wild guess and say he probably fled before the cops got there.

This guy is an animal. Worse than an animal. Mully of the week.

rottweiler 1:05 pm 11 May 10

Oh please can I have 10mins with this dead beat. This makes me sick those poor dogs no animals deserves that treatment, and worst of all the 2 found in the backyard are going to need special care to be rehoused or worse put down ……. people like this dead beat are what gives certain breeds bad names a dog never forgets you raise a hand to a dog the next time it happens it will lash out. I truely hope he gets what he deserves but no doubt the courts will let him off.

Hank 1:00 pm 11 May 10

This is revolting what pig of a man.

BimboGeek 12:11 pm 11 May 10

Agreed with Jungle Jim. Animal cruelty is no joke, it’s clearly the sign of a violent and dangerous person!

OK so I’m a vegan and I’m into animal rights. I know a few animal rights people who are basically narcissistic prics and want to show you their moral superiority and I don’t like them any more than anyone else does.

But a psychopath who beats a dog to death just for the hell of it? I’m glad the police are starting to arrest these people and treat them like the abominations they are! Their only mistake on this occasion was letting him escape the scene at all, they wouldn’t do that if there was a dead human on site. Maybe he disposed of his swan-shooting gun? Now, we’ll never know!

Jungle Jim 11:10 am 11 May 10

So, this bloke was free take off for an hour to dispose of whatever he may have had in his possession when the cops showed up. Someone who’s willing to (allegedly) beat a dog to death can’t be too far from many of the other criminal enterprises!
